    Pringles Light

    I've had the sour cream & onion and the original flavor. Yum! Yum! Ruffles also has a light version now (made with Olestra)- again 1 ounce for 1 point. Yum!
  2. I made this last night and it was good. Next time, I will spice it up a little more (I like spicy) and maybe make more sauce (I love sauce!). Aw heck- maybe some more rice too. Or maybe bulgar. Hmmmmm....
  3. oooooooooooooooo! Lucky Lucky Girl!
  4. In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth and populated the Earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives. Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and Krispy Creme Donuts. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?" And Man said, "Yes!" and Woman said, "and as long as you're at it, add some sprinkles." And they gained 10 pounds. And Satan smiled. And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and sugar from the cane and combined them. And Woman went from size 6 to size 14. So God said, "Try my fresh green salad." And Satan presented Thousand-Island dressing, buttery croutons and garlic toast on the side. And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast. God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them." And Satan brought forth deep fried fish and chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter. And Man gained more weight and his cholesterol went through the roof. God then created a light, fluffy white cake, named it "Angel Food Cake," and said, "It is good." Satan then created chocolate cake and named it "Devil's Food." God then brought forth running shoes so that His children might lose those extra pounds. And Satan gave cable TV with a remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering blue light and gained pounds. Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fried them. And Man gained pounds. God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent double cheeseburger. Then said, "You want fries with that?" And Man replied, "Yes! And super size them!" And Satan said, "It is good." And Man went into cardiac arrest. God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery. Then Satan created HMOs.
  5. A mother is driving a little girl to her friend's house for a play date. "Mommy," the little girl asks, "how old are you?" "Honey, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age," the mother replied. "It's not polite." "OK", the little girl says, "How much do you weigh?" "Now really," the mother says, "those are personal questions and are really none of your business." Undaunted, the little girl asks, "Why did you and Daddy get a divorce?" "That is enough questions, young lady, honestly!" The exasperated mother walks away as the two friends begin to play. "My Mom won't tell me anything about her," the little girl says to her friend. "Well," says the friend, "all you need to do is look at her drivers license. It is like a report card, it has everything on it." Later that night the little girl says to her mother, "I know how old you are, you are 32." The mother is surprised and asks, "How did you find that out? "I also know that you weigh 140 pounds." The mother is past surprised and shocked now. "How in heaven's name did you find that out?" "And," the little girl says triumphantly,"I know why you and daddy got a divorce." "Oh really?" the mother asks. "Why?" "Because you got an F in sex."
  6. Just try this. It is from an orthopedic surgeon............ This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It's reprogrammed in your brain! 1. WITHOUT anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY......) and while sitting where you are at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. 2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction. I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so. Send it to your buddies to frustrate them too.
  7. Verily I say unto ye.......... Money! It can buy a house. But not a home. It can buy a clock. But not time. It can buy you a position. But not respect. It can buy you a bed. But not sleep. It can buy you a book. But not knowledge. It can buy you medicine. But not health. It can buy you blood. But not life. So you see money isn't everything. And it often causes pain and suffering. I tell you this because I am your friend. And as your friend, I want to Take away your pain and suffering!! So Send me all your money!! And I will suffer for you! Cash only please! After all, what are friends for, huh?? I HOPE THIS MADE YOU SMILE!!! LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE! MONEY CAN'T BUY GOOFY E-MAILS, EITHER!! They come from your crazy friends!
  8. I found this at my grocery store the other day and had the spaghetti tonight. Pretty good. It works out to 3 points per 2 oz dry/1 cup cooked serving. And the link in the original posting still brings you to a $1.00 off coupon that is good through 12/31/07. I'm going to stock up on next trip.
  9. I used to buy the Sara Lee Delightful also but I much prefer the Natures Own; for one thing, it's soft whereas the Sara Lee bread wasn't. Don't forget the Natures Own hamburger buns and hot dog buns! Low points too!
  10. There is a dangerous virus being passed around electronically, orally, and by hand. This virus is called Worm Overload Recreational Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from any of your colleagues, your boss, or anyone else via any means DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private life completely. If you should come into contact with WORK, put your jacket on and take two good friends to the nearest grocery store. Purchase the antidote known as Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) or Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system. You should forward this warning to five friends. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.
  11. Yippee! Yahooo! I'm down my 10%. Yep, that's 27 icky pounds GONE! I'm excited! I'm re-energized! I'm proud of me! And I finally weigh less than the combined weight of my two kids (ages 20 & 23 and, luckily, they seem to take after their late father who couldn't gain weight no matter how hard he tried *sigh*). Applause for me but, also, applause for YOU: I'm doing this at home without meetings to keep me on track. I'm using all of you to inspire me and keep me motivated and OP. Keep up the great work, ladies and gentlemen, so I can keep up the great work too!
  12. I made this for dinner last night and I enjoyed it very much. I was expecting more of a crust like texture though (think: impossibly easy cheeseburger pie). Next time, I'm going to try it with the low fat bisquick (with point adjustment as needed). Thanks for the quick and easy (my cooking mantra) recipe. Oh yeah: I learned something today- I discovered diced tomatoes come in more than 1 size- I used the HUGE can I had on the shelf but found the smaller ones today at the store. Chef Tomaine strikes again!
  13. Yup but it also had a version with lyrics- in French. The name is a direct (albeit partial) translation of the French refrain.
  14. Poor People of Paris by Les Baxter. I never heard of the song or the artist; I have heard of 99% of the songs everyone else has posted. I guess I need to get a new birthdate; mine's busted!
  15. Ok, I'll bite... Why should I avoid putting my head over the pan when adding the vinegar? (they don't call me Chef Tomaine for nothing!)

  17. Finally an exercise I excel at! Thanks for the laugh!!
  18. Congratulations to BOTH of you for sticking it out when you didn't see immediate results. It shows that you are committed to WW and have faith in what it can do for you. Give yourselves a big pat on the back!

    Potato Chips

    Yup, the Pringles are good. They also come in the plain original flavor. A note of warning though: they are made with Olestra. It doesn't have a negative impact on me but I know some people are more sensitive to its side effects.
  20. I plan a week at a time as I feel doing it daily would be too daunting a task. My weekly menu is mainly for dinners and allows me to do the shopping and thawing. My breakfasts and lunches are pretty uninspired and fairly low points so having a 'big' dinner is not an issue.
  21. Take heed to this suggestion!! Never bring outdoor plants into the house. WHY? Garden Grass Snakes also known as Garter Snakes (Thamnophissirtalis) can be dangerous. Yes, grass snakes, not rattlesnakes. Here's why......... A couple in Sweetwater , Texas , had a lot of potted plants. During a recent cold spell, the wife was bringing a lot of them indoors to protect them from a possible freeze. It turned out that a little green garden grass snake was hidden in one of the plants and when it had warmed up, it slithered out and the wife saw it go under the sofa. She let out a very loud scream! The husband (who was taking a shower) ran out into the living room naked to see what the problem was. She told him there was a snake under the sofa. He got down on the floor on his hands and knees to look for it. About that time the family dog came and cold-nosed him on the behind. He thought the snake had bitten him, so he screamed and fell over on the floor. His wife thought he had a heart attack, so she covered him up, told him to lie still and called an ambulance.. The attendants rushed in, wouldn't listen to his protests and loaded him on the stretcher and started carrying him out. About that time the snake came out from under the sofa and the Emergency Medical Technician saw it and dropped his end of the stretcher. That's when the man broke his leg and why he is still in the hospital. The wife still had the problem of the snake in the house , so she called on a neighbor man. He volunteered to capture the snake. He armed himself with a rolled-up newspaper and began poking under the couch. Soon he decided it was gone and told the woman, who sat down on the sofa in relief. But while relaxing, her hand dangled in between the cushions, where she felt the snake wriggling around. She screamed and fainted, the snake rushed back under the sofa . The neighbor man, seeing her lying there passed out, tried to use CPR to revive her. The neighbor's wife, who had just returned from shopping at the grocery store, saw her husband's mouth on the woman's mouth and slammed her husband in the back of the head with a bag of canned goods, knocking him out and cutting his scalp to a point where it needed stitches. The noise woke the woman from her dead faint and she saw her neighbor lying on the floor with his wife bending over him, so she assumed that he had been bitten by the snake. She went to the kitchen and got a small bottle of whiskey, and began pouring it down the man's throat. By now the police had arrived. They saw the unconscious man, smelled the whiskey, and assumed that a drunken fight had occurred. They were about to arrest them all, when the women tried to explain how it all happened over a little green snake. The police called an ambulance, which took away the neighbor and his sobbing wife. The little snake again crawled out from under the sofa. One of the policemen drew his gun and fired at it. He missed the snake and hit the leg of the end table. The table fell over and the lamp on it shattered and as the bulb broke it started a fire in the drapes. The other policeman tried to beat out the flames, and fell through the window into the yard on top of the family dog who, startled, jumped out and raced into the street, where an oncoming car swerved to avoid it and smashed into the parked police car. Meanwhile, the burning drapes, were seen by the neighbors who called the fire department. The firemen had started raising the fire truck ladder when they were halfway down the street. The rising ladder tore out the overhead wires and put out the electricity and disconnected the telephones in a ten-square city block area (but they did get the house fire out). Time passed! Both men were discharged from the hospital, the house was repaired, the dog came home, the police acquired a new car, and all was right with their world. A while later they were watching TV and the weatherman announced a cold snap for that night The wife asked her husband if he thought they should bring in their plants for the night. That's when he shot her.

  23. You need to change your thinking, Girl! WW is not just about losing weight; it's a lifestyle change. You're teaching yourself how to eat right; weight loss is just the bonus. When you catch yourself thinking negatively, replace that thought with a positive one, like: I CAN DO THIS! It takes practice to reduce or eliminate negative thinking- just like it takes practice to drink all your water, or exercise regularly, or stay OP. I have faith in your ability to do this. Can you have any less?
  24. I made this the other night- GREAT! I used Veg-All and left out the cheese. They were just as good the next day.
  25. This explains why we forward jokes. A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them. After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight. When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side. When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse me, where are we?" "This is Heaven, sir," the man answered. "Wow! Would you happen to have some water?" the man asked. "Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up." The man gestured, and the gate began to open. "Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog, "come in, too?" the traveler asked. "I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets." The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog. After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence. As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book. "Excuse me!" he called to the man. "Do you have any water?" "Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in." "How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to the dog. "There should be a bowl by the pump." They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it. The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog. When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree. "What do you call this place?" the traveler asked. "This is Heaven," he answered. "Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The man down the road said that was Heaven, too." "Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That's hell." "Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?" "No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind." Soooo... Sometimes, we wonder why friends keep forwarding jokes to us without writing a word. Maybe this will explain. When you are very busy, but still want to keep in touch, guess what you do? You forward jokes. When you have nothing to say, but still want to keep contact, you forward jokes. When you have something to say, but don't know what, and don't know how, you forward jokes. Also to let you know that you are still remembered, you are still important, you are still loved, you are still cared for, guess what you get? A forwarded joke. So, next time if you get a joke, don't think that you've been sent just another forwarded joke, but that you've been thought of today and your friend on the other end of your computer wanted to send you a smile. You are all welcome at my water bowl anytime.
