  1. Katie--does HSN have the same return policy? I haven't shopped there much, but Amazon is my other favorite!
  2. Katie--My DH bought me the Williams-Sonoma version for Christmas, but I would've bought the QVC one if he hadn't. The really nice thing about QVC is that you can try something for 30 days and send it back for ANY reason--even if you just don't like it. They give us a chance to test it out, and I love that. I think you could call QVC's customer service and ask them about the warranty. I don't mean to sound like a commercial, but it's really nice to have the freedom to return something without a hassle.
  3. I saw this version on QVC: http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvcapp.aspx/view.2/app.detail/params.item.K22881.desc.Vidalia-SliceIt-Compact-Slicer-with-4-Blades-Storage-Cover It looked and chopped very much like the Williams-Sonoma, and the price is great by comparison.
  4. Ah-HA, Carol! Seems like I could'a figured that out. I did learn from some earlier posts that it takes a lot of pushing strength, so I put mine on a step-stool to get some good leverage. Smooth as silk! Thanks to your inspiration, Carol, I went out and bought myself a salad spinner to go with it, so I'm going to start an assembly line for my salads, too. Thank you SO much!
  5. Okay, Carol....I need your expertise, please! I finally got one of these choppers, and I can't figure out how to dice veggies into little cubes. I've only been able to cut them into french-fry length pieces so far. How do you do it? It seems simple to make french fries, slices, and wedges, but I just don't know how to use which attachment to dice. Help, please!
  6. She's SO precious! Wow, does that bring back memories. Thank you for sharing Aubrey's special day with us!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
  7. I'm about 99% sure that calculation is the same one used when I joined in early 2007. Yes, I would eat and enjoy the number of points that Weight Watchers recommends. They've done the research, and it works, so don't feel guilty for eating those points. Besides...you'll be losing one point every time you move into a lower 10-pound range, so enjoy them while you've got them!
  8. Hi KellBell, and Welcome!! You're doing an amazing job with your weight loss! I'm a VERY slow loser, too, but you're right---it's too important to give up the journey. I experienced something similar: I tried dieting (you name it, I did it) so many times in the past, and this time something "clicked," and I "got it." I think you just have to be really ready and willing to make it a lifestyle change and not look at it as a diet any more. I had a lonnnnggg plateau last year after Christmas, but just be patient---it kicks up again eventually. You've come so far, and I'm highly impressed. You're so inspiring to me, and I appreciate you sharing your story with us. I think you'll find some wonderful support on this board. We're glad to have you join us!
  9. Diet Coke Sloppy Joes 1 Medium onion, chopped 2 T olive oil (if using veggie crumbles) 1 lb. extra-lean ground beef or equivalent veggie crumbles (that's what I use) 2/3 C ketchup 1 C Diet Coke 2 tsp. prepared mustard 3-4 Tbl. worcestershire sauce (or more, if you prefer) 1 Tbl. cider vinegar Saute' onion in olive oil until onion is softened. Add veggie crumbles, and all remaining ingredients, and mix well. (Optional: If you use ground beef, brown the ground beef and the onions together, drain, and then add all the remaining ingredients and mix well.) Simmer, uncovered, 15-20 minutes, or until thickened, stirring occasionally. I serve this on Whitewheat (1 point) buns, and my DH loves it as much as I do. Yum!
  10. Great answer, Kait! That's exactly what I learned from a friend that's a trainer.
  11. Thanks, Irene! I'm struggling with these last few, but I'm used to being a slow loser. Your stats are awesome, too!
  12. I bought some the chocolate version, but I haven't tried it yet. I really like Carol's idea to put it in hot cocoa, though! I never would've thought of that, and I guess it might be good with either the regular or chocolate PB2. I bought a jar of the Better-n-Peanut Butter once, and it didn't taste enough like real peanut butter to be worth it to me. I think the PB2 has a real peanut taste, and several of my coworkers had to taste-test it when they saw that I was mixing it up. They were amazed at how good it is.
  13. I really love PB2; I think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread (with peanut butter, of course). I've used it in smoothies (made with the WW smoothie mix (chocolate or vanilla), a banana, some skim milk, and ice), on celery sticks as a snack, and to make peanut butter and banana sandwiches. I've ordered it several times over the past couple of years, and my picky DH really likes it, too. There are some really good recipes on the Bell Plantation website (www.bellplantation.com). I can't wait to try PB2 in an Asian stir fry!
  14. Poetess...I meant to mention the the Southwestern dressing I make reminds me of the Mexi-ranch dressing that Applebee's serves with their Santa Fe Chicken Salad. I absolutely agree that the dressing makes or breaks the salad.
  15. I'm addicted to a Southwestern grilled chicken salad I make, and I use a homemade Cilantro Ranch dressing on it. If you like Mexican food, try this one. It's so simple. Mix up a packet of dry ranch dressing mix with fat-free mayo and fat-free sour cream (per the package directions.) Add a teaspoon (or more, depending on how much heat you like) of chipoltle sauce (found in the Mexican food section of the grocery store) and mix well. I put about 3-4 teaspoons in of the sauce in my dressing, but I love spicy food. I use this dressing on a salad that consists of romaine lettuce, black beans, corn, onion, Roma tomatoes, grilled chicken, and a few black corn chips (I count points for those.) Sometimes I add a little fat-free cheese, too. Yum!!
