  1. I agree with you about fresh Brussel Sprouts being so different from frozen. I had only had frozen until a couple of years ago. BOY, had I been missing out. Of course I used to steam them and then toss them with tons of butter, garlic, and parmesan cheese. I'm not sure how I'll fix them now that I am on WW. I can probably just eat them plain. It's been amazing how many vegetable I like simply boiled or steamed with some salt and pepper. I wish I would have tried this years ago.
  2. Hello all. I have been on WW for 7 months and have lost almost 40 pounds. The last 6 weeks or so I have been really struggling/failing with the result of gaining about 4 pounds back. Since I am not willing to give up, I decided to try the SF plan. I have been on it for about 4 days. When I went to my weight in yesterday, I had lost 2.4 pounds. That is very good considering my past 6 weeks. Anyway, the biggest question I have is....are there any fast food type choices out there? I cook a lot and take my lunches, but occasionally get caught out of town without anything good to eat. Most of these times, I don't have time to go to a 'sit-down' restaurant. I had my stand-bys with the Flex program, like McDonalds salads with grilled chicken, etc, but none of those are on the list. I know I have those 35 points to use, but I typically use about 5 a day to add a little bread, crackers, or other ingredients in my diet to make it work for me. What do you guys have in a pinch? Thanks.
  3. I am definitely putting this on my menu this week. Sounds delish!
  4. I can't wait to try this one. I am trying to find a good marinade to go with some chicken that I will be serving a cous cous berry salad with. I thing this will be good.
  5. I saw some of these at the store the other day and passed them up. Has anyone cooked anything other the fish on them? Would it benefit chicken?
  6. Great. I just bought some polenta and I was wondering what to do with it. I can't wait to try it.
  7. Thanks for posting this. I love the full fat version and I have really missed it. I can't wait to try it.
  8. I'm doing really well today. I think I have really discovered something important during my lapse. I have terrible cravings sometimes especially in the afternoon from about 3:00 to 7:00. I used to think that it was a lack of will power, but I think I have discovered that certain foods (refined carbs) really cause those cravings. Right before I fell off the wagon, I ate several things that were made from white flour and counted the points. The next afternoon I had strong cravings that I hadn't had in over 7 weeks. I being really careful about those foods now. Back to vegetables, lean meat, and whole grains for me! I think I'll write a post about this in the next couple of days. I wonder if other people have noticed a correlation.

  9. Happens to the best of us Pam. You're not alone. I'm happy to hear you didn't gain anything. Are you struggling OP now or do you feel like you have your determination back now? Glad you are back here.

  10. Thanks for checking on me. After 7 perfect weeks OP, I fell off the wagon a bit. I didn't gain anything last week, but I didn't even count points all week. I'm not really happy about the behavior, but as of today I am back on track. It means a lot that you messaged me. Thanks!!

  11. Pam....how are you doing? I haven't seen you post anything about you lately. Hope all is well.

  12. Hey Mike, I was just wondering if you have ever had any problems with the Wii Fit? I am still too heavy for one, but my I promised myself I would buy one when I got to 330. Do you have any advice? Do you think it will work for me being right on the weight limit? Thanks
  13. Does anyone know if there is a weight limit for the Wii Fit?
  14. I am SO excited. I ADORE peanut butter. I just order several jars of this stuff. I can't wait to try it! Thanks for posting this.
  15. Ok, I have seen the issue of points for chicken danced around, but I still can't figure out how many points to count for rotisserie chicken (breast only with the skin removed). I sure would appreciate help here. My family eats alot of these and I usually just use the 1pt/1oz formula. I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. Thanks!!
