  1. Wow, that sounds excellent! I'll have to give it a try
  2. Oooh, I hate ff mayo too! For tuna salad, I use Kraft fat free Honey Dijon salad dressing instead...it gives it a slightly sweeter taste than mayo, but I really like it, especially on toasted WW seedless rye bread (1 point for 2 slices).
  3. I find a lot of comfort in routine, so I tend eat repetitively most of the time. For example, I've eaten a piece of baked oatmeal for breakfast, every day for the last 4 months. It tastes good, fills me up, I can make it in advance, and it's portable...don't mess with perfection, I say. I also tend to stick with a few different things for lunch..usually soup, core chili w/core-n-bread, or a chicken dish. Dinner varies...I try out a new recipe every couple of weeks, and rotate them. I agree that it is an individual thing...but I think, as long as you're sticking with the plan, you will lose weight. Deciding whether or not to vary your food is a personal choice. p.s.- Sunflower seeds are my weakness too!
  4. Made this on Sunday and had it with brown rice for lunch the first half of the week. It was excellent!
  5. I almost always use all of my points. Sometimes I use a few each day throughout the week, sometimes I save them for the weekend, sometimes I even use them all in one day. I find that the flexibility helps me to stay on track.
  6. I make up a batch of baked oatmeal every Sunday, and then pop a piece in the microwave each morning. It's actually my favorite part of Core...it's very comforting to me when I'm feeling sluggish (which is most mornings). Plus, it keeps the hunger at bay for a long time.
  7. I usually mix in some red kidney beans, canned corn, black olives, chopped red bell peppers, and fajita seasoning. Tastes yummy, and it's really filling.
  8. It works! I used half wheat bran, half cornmeal. They're a little grainy, but still tasty
  9. I made this for our little Oscar party tonight, and it was fabulous!!
  10. Is it possible to substitue wheat bran for oat bran? I couldn't find oat bran at the grocery store.
  11. I just made these tonight, and they're GREAT!! I used cupcake papers, so I didn't have any problem getting them out of the pans, but a lot of the muffin does stick to the paper when you peel it off. But otherwise, I give these an A+!! To me, they taste just like the real thing.

  14. Hello everybody! My name is Jenna, and as of this very morning, I'm starting the Weight Watchers program. I did WW once before, about a year ago, but I was just in the wrong mindset and I didn't stick with it. In fact, I've gained over 40 pounds since then. I'm 23 years old, and I've been struggling with my weight since I was 16. I started out at about 170 lbs, and by the time i was 18, I weighed 206. Then I went on a very unhealthy crash diet, and I lost 60 pounds in about 5 months. Over the next 3 years, I gained it all back and then some, and ended up at about 231. I then spent the next year alternating between eating way too much and not eating nearly enough, and ended the year at about 212. Since then, I have not stopped bingeing, and I am now 265 pounds. Over the past few months, I have actually observed the changes in my body as they have happened. I have watched myself grow fatter, I've felt my clothes get tighter, and I've noticed that I can't move as easily as I could just a few short months ago. I get winded climbing one flight of stairs. And yet still I'll drive to Wendy's at 1:30 in the morning because I get that urge to binge. Over the past couple of weeks, I've realized that I am ready to change. I want to be healthy. I want to be able to run up the stairs without feeling like my heart will burst. I'm too young to feel like this. I'm not sure what my goal weight should be. I don't want to set it too low and end up feeling like it's impossible to get there. I'm 5'8" so my "healthy weight range" is somewhere between 130-160 lbs. That is a *lot* of weight to lose. But I see that many others here have done it...and that gives me hope. I've been on every diet there is...South Beach, Atkins, Cabbage Soup, low fat diets, starving myself diets, etc. I'm sick of diets. I'm ready to change my life permanently. I can't wait to meet you all -Jenna
