  1. so simple drop it on the grill--no need for anything else--yummy roasted veggie
  2. yes-thanks for clearing this up. It just says 1 point. Everything else that I bought that is weight watchers says __ points plus. Thanks again!
  3. I bought some ww yogurt that says it is 1pt. However when I put it in my ww calculator it says it is two pts--So which should I use I''m just starting day two so I'm still playing around with my calculator--figuring out how it works. Thanks Amy
  4. Hi everyone, I'm Amy with the Blue team. I'm planning to lose ten pounds over the next ten weeks. My mom lost 50lbs before our Memphis, TN vacation last summer and so now I have vowed to do the same before we go to Niagra falls next August!! She did it in 4 months so I should definitely be able to do it in ten!! Amy

  6. whoo hooo lost 4 lbs!! by eating MORE!!!! Amy
  7. thanks--I am going to start counting my AP's in the middle of high and moderate. I'm also going to count my points on Sundays. I have a feeling I was not eating enough on Sunday's but I mentally liked the feeling of not counting. Thanks again. Amy
  8. I've been following ww and participating in kick boxing and resistence training for 4 1/2 weeks now and I've lost four pounds. I really, really thought I would be losing faster then that esp. at the beginning here. I haev plenty to lose (like 75+ lbs) so it's not like I'm only looking at losing a few lbs. My waist is a bit smaller, but not dramatically. I guess I'm wondering how do I know if I'm eating enough or too much. I'm really not sure how to rate my exercise --I usually figure points using a moderate intensity level for 1 hour. But sometimes the intensity is higher and sometimes it's lower--during warm up and cool down. How it is rated really effects the points earned and so I'm wondering if I'm not eating enough or too much based on my exercise. I'm not ready to give up or anything, but boy I wish I was actually seeing more of a change on the scale. Any ideas or suggestions for help? I don't really count my extra weekly points. I just try and eat what I want one day of the week (usually Sunday) but I definitely haven't went overboard. I don't even know if I used them all yesterday--should I be trying to use every point possible??? On the up side--I am definitely getting stronger. I'm pumping out the situps using a 10 lbs ball now!! I began with six poinds and even struggled without a weighted ball to do situps. Class doesn't wipe me out as much any more. I've moved up in the resistance bands!! And boy I feel strong hitting that bag. It's an amazing class and it really pushes me to workout hard. thanks for reading and helping!! Amy
  9. I've been away for awhile, but I'm back again:bcb_grin A few weeks ago I began UBC classes at 6am. They really encourage you to have protein. I've been having protein and a carb as soon as I get home. Like a couple of eggs and a banana-or cottage cheese and toast. I've had no problems at all--I also don't eat before I work out. Amy
  10. Those are the same that I use and I love them... dh got them for me for x-mas after they were recommended for runners. Amy
  11. I got this out of The Betty Crockers Eat and Lose Weight cookbook that lists the calories--180 fat--2 gram protein 3 g cholesterol 55 mg carbohydrates 38 g sodium 125 So I'm assuming without knowing the fiber that each serving is 4 pts. If you have any idea if there is any fiber in this let me know. I'm going to make this today and thought I'd share. I'm wanting to bake so I thought I would try something pt friendly. 1 can (8.25 oz) crushed pineapple in juice, drained (reserve juice) 1 package (.3 oz) sugar free lemon or orange flavored gelatin 2 eggs 1 egg white 3/4 cup sugar 1 tsp vanilla 3/4 all purpose flour 1 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt preheat oven to 375. Line round pan, 9x1 1/2 inches with waxed paper, spray with nonstick cooking spray. Spread pineapple evenly in pan-sprinkle with dry gelatin. beat eggs and egg white in small bowl on high speed until very thick and lemon colored (about 5 minutes) pour into medium bowl. Gradually beat in sugar. Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to measure 1/3 cup. Beat in juice and vanilla on low speed. Gradually add flour, baking powder and salt--beating just until batter is smooth. Pour into pan. Bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Immediately loosen cake from edge of pan--invert pan on heatproof serving plate. Carefully remove waxed paper. Serve warm. 8 servings!
  12. I'm modifying it myself--I'm doing each week for two weeks. I think as long as we are moving and progressing then yeah for us!! I tried doing it four times one week and it really wiped me out there, so don't be surprised if three days works out for the best. I do some walking and bike riding in addition so that could also be why I was so wiped. Just don't overdo it and have fun! Amy
  13. Great Job!! I'm doing Week 2 right now (this is however my third week into it). I did week 1 for two weeks and I'm probably going to do week 2 for two weeks. There are mornings when I don't feel like doing it, but I do it anyway and I'm always so proud of myself. I'm like you I feel so strong and powerful when I've completed a jog/walk--ready to do anything. Keep us posted on your progress! Amy
