  1. I saw a recipe on the WW site yesterday that was for Fresh Vegetable Soup. I'm pretty sure it's the same as the 0 point Garden Vegetable Soup that was used during the Momentum plan. I believe the points value for it is now 1 point per serving.

    But you have more weekly points as well! I say if you like something that much, then you should use your weekly points on it. I know I would!
  3. I don't drink fruit juice or eat dried fruits. Well, very rarely I'll have dried cranberries or raisins in my salad from a salad bar but that's almost never. I could drink my weight in juice and that's a LOT of calories, so I avoid it altogether. As for starchy veggies, I have those quite a bit. I love potatoes!
  4. You look great! What a wonderful inspiration to everyone!
  5. I'm bumping this thread because I'm making this tonight and the points values have changed under the new PointsPlus program. I actually plugged in the weight of my package of chicken. Just for reference, the biscuits listed are the small rolls of regular Pillsbury biscuit dough. Enjoy! Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings Course: main meals PointsPlus™ Value: 8 Servings: 6 Preparation Time: 5 min Cooking Time: 300 min Level of Difficulty: Easy Ingredients 30 oz uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast 608 gm Campbell's 98% Fat-Free Cream Of Chicken Soup, 2 Cans 1/2 cup(s) onion(s), Finely Chopped 212 gm biscuit, prepared from refrigerated dough, 1 Roll of small Pillsbury Biscuits Instructions Place the chicken, soup, and onion in a slow cooker and fill with enough water to cover. Cover the slow cooker and cook for 5-6 hours on high. About 30 minutes before serving, tear each biscuit into 3 pieces and cook until dough is no longer raw in the middle.
  6. CW - Congrats on your 5%! That's a wonderful accomplishment! As for the plan, almost everything about it is good for me. Positives: -Free fruit! I love that when I'm low or out of points, I still have options and can stay on plan! -Renewed sense of motivation. I'm super-motivated about the plan now because it's something new. -The fact that this plan nudges you towards healthier options without you having to conciously think about it. Negative: -It's a little harder to go grocery shopping now because I knew the points of everything before. -I miss the check-off boxes for your WPA in the 3 month journal. -I have to recalculate my recipes. Keep in mind though, the negatives are not bad at all. They aren't major issues for me. The positives definitely outweigh the negative!
  7. I'm really loving the new plan so far. I lost 4.2 lbs from Monday-Friday (my WI day). I'd say that's a nice change!
  8. I have some friends on here who only gained 5 extra DPA to work with. I got 9 more, which is a nice stretch, but for some it's a little more difficult.

    Great idea! I think it would be easier to start a new section with the new recipes instead of trying to convert all the old ones.
  10. I bought the kit because, in the past, I've relied heavily on the Dining Out Companion. That, and I wanted the calculator and journal. Plus, this new member's kit is WAY nicer than the last one they rolled out with the cheap drawstring baggie. I LOVE the binder it comes in. Very nice!
  11. It just goes by your weight, height, age, and whether or not you're a nursing mother. It's really the same, except it doesn't ask what your job consists of. I'm just an e-tools user since I can't really afford meetings anymore.
  12. I have a hard time during Thanksgiving week, I'll admit it. It's a challenge for me, but mostly because I have 2 T-day dinners and 2 birthdays all in one week. My goal this week is to maintain.
  13. You look amazing and at least 10 years younger! What an inspiration!
  14. Almonds and peanuts are more of a fav of mine, so it would be glorious if they were free. Don't almonds contain healthy fats? LOL
