  1. The new Chipotle one is pretty yummy too... I'm not a big blue cheese fan so I haven't tried that one yet...
  2. I did great last week - not so much this week! Eeek!! Law School finals, baby showers and holiday parties - today was terrible but I'm going to do my best to do right tomorrow! I really need to get to the grocery store and stock up on fruit and stuff for lunches! I've been doing great for breakfast and then it all sorta falls apart... I'm still really excited though and I know what I NEED to do - so after Finals I think it should all be great again!
  3. PB2 tastes a lot better mixed with healthy oil rather than just water in my opinion - better consistency.... I haven't had it in forever - but I think I did part oil part water...
  4. Might be all in my head but it's showing on the scale so fine by me! LOVE it! I'd been stuck since the beginning of Oct and got a nice drop this week!
  5. lost 2.4 this week - most I've lost in a while - I'm definately all in for the change!! (Plus I'm an online member so I'm forced to! )
  6. both kits were sold out online last night! I don't usually use the books anyway so I guess it's a sign I don't need them!
  7. I only had one bump today where I couldn't get in - but it could have been that the computer I was using was already freaking out - I use Internet Explorer... So far it's been pretty smooth for me although somethings are a little confusing in the way they are listed now - like Subway - could they just say 6 inch or 12 inch instead of how many ounces it is?! I'm guessing smaller ounces is 6-inch and larger is 12inch...
  8. I'm not sure if there's a cap - but since you have to use the calculator or eTools now (right?) it should figure it for you - at least it always did in the past.... whether you put in 4 or 44 it would figure it the same....
  9. Okay I had to laugh - eTools recalculated my points for the week and I was over 200 in the negative! I paged back to find out it was telling me 2 TBSP of cranberry sauce was 200+ points (although a 1/4 cup was only like 6).... Watch those cranberries they'll get ya!
  10. ahhh... decisions decisions - I never seem to use the books or calculator at all because I have e-tools and use the WW mobile site but I always buy them.... so wondering if I should actually buy the deluxe kit?! Anyone have an opinion yet on if the deluxe kit is a must have for us online only people?
  11. So how many people are going to either a) stay up late to read about the new program online or b) be trying to figure it all out at work tomorrow online?! ARGH - would have been much nicer for the online folks to actually post it when people are more likely to be available to read through it all. I am hoping it is midnight Eastern when it is posted online because last night around 10 it was telling me the program starts tomorrow - so I'm hoping at 10 tonight I can read about it!
  12. There is online shopping but the only bad thing is shipping costs - so if you live near a center you might still want to check if you can purchase stuff there... I just pay for shipping because if I was able to make it to a meeting to shop I'd be attending them!
  13. Bagel thin w/a laughing cow wedge instead of cream cheese = yum! Add some ham and it's a great breakfast!
  14. I do the WW Smoothies - and sometimes for extra yum I add in some sugar free Torani syrup...
  15. Welcome Ellenore! Congrats on your decision to do the right thing for your body!
  16. Does anyone know why Starbucks Oatmeal wouldn't be simply filling? In the e-tools it's not marked with the diamond and I wonder if it's just a glitch? Obviously the toppings aren't - but they are all listed seperately. As far as I can tell it's just oats & water.... I don't have it too often but when I do I only count the points for brown sugar, but I was just curious if there's something lurking in there I don't know about!!
  17. I'm back again! Time to get serious!! One of my close friends has lost 50lbs and I am so jealous and my other friend talks and talks about losing weight and thinks I can't do it so I have to prove her wrong! So I'm back - and planning to do mostly SF - I might switch off to points on weeks where I have several food events. I have one food event this week and am still deciding how to handle it - its on the last day of my week so I guess I better be careful about using my WP and earn some AP too! Then the next night - first day of the week is the fair! Eeek - I can't imagine there is anything SF friendly at the fair! Maybe that will be a points week... Anyway - I'm excited to be back - it feels so good to eat my yummy SF foods again!
  18. Ditto to Dandy - either Sara Lee Delightful or Sandwhich thins....
  19. FF Shredded Cheese - I can't find it at any store near me... I've always had a hard time finding Simply Filling items - but now it's even harder. Guess I live in an area w/people not concerned about what they eat!!
  20. Just had this for dinner - was on one of those little peel off lables on the ground beef. It was yummy! I used medium pace salsa (next time I would use mild - it was too spicy for my son) and FF shredded cheese. (I went to the website to copy the recipe: http://www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com/recipe.aspx?id=105) Ingredients 1 pound ground beef 1 jar (16 ounces) prepared thick-and-chunky salsa 1 package (1.25 ounces) taco seasoning mix Country Corn: 1. 2 cups instant polenta 2. 1 can (4-1/2 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained well 3. 2 cups shredded Mexican or Italian cheese blend Instructions Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings. Stir in salsa and taco seasoning; cook over medium-low heat 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile prepare polenta according to package directions. Stir in chilies and 1-1/2 cups of the cheese. Serve beef mixture over polenta; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese
  21. Wow! That baby has a lot to say!!
  22. Popcorn - my favorite afternoon work snack Fruit/Veggies Applesauce (those single serve cups work great) Starbucks Skinny Latte and like the others have said - there are a TON of snacky threads on here!
  23. Yuck - none! It's too easy to make your own veggie soup and tastes sooo much better! I just throw a bunch of veggies in a pot w/some chicken or beef broth - a can of tomatoes and let it cook for a couple hours - at the end I toss in some chopped cabbage. Of course I throw in whatever spices spark my fancy at the moment. I usually use a combo of fresh and frozen veggies.
  24. Oh and yes.... I too have been horrified at something I guessed and thought wasn't too bad but WHOOPS! It happends... if you have a dining out book keep it in the car or if you know there's places you frequent, go online and print out the nutrition info - point the things you normally eat and highlight the best ones - then stash it in the car and next time you can just whip it out and know what your best choices are.
  25. Activity points... take a walk, do some moving and build up some points to cover the sandwich points...
