  2. Thank you sooo much! No, it wasn't written there and I asked the receptionist before I left and she didn't have a calculator and none for sale so I have to wait til next week or stop at another meeting.
  3. Hi all! I rejoined meetings today but there was a substitute leader and she forgot to give me my pointsplus daily points target. Can anyone help me out? I am 39, will be 40 in 3 weeks if that makes a difference start weight 264.4 height 5'6" not sure what other info you might need. Thanks! Kim
  4. Can anyone help me out here? I can't find my book at the moment and wanted to see if molasses was a core/simply filling food....logic tells me no, but wanted to double check. If it isn't can you give me the points? TIA Kim
  5. http://web.archive.org/web/20051203060335/http://www.zotz.com/crafts/cooking/camchristmascookies05.htm I viewed the site by using the wayback machine....google it and then you can find any old webpage they have saved.
  6. I have to tell you, I started back on weight watchers on Jan. 10th 2007 and I have used almost all of my flexpoints every week! When I figured my average weight loss per week for 6 weeks, I have averaged 3.9 pounds! So EAT those points and enjoy the foods! Don't make foods taboo because then you just crave them more and it will inhibit your success! Best of Luck to you! Kim
  7. Thanks so much Joanne! I knew the points "guru" would have an answer!! Kim
  8. Hi all! I need some help with pointing a soup. It's Healthy choice county vegetable. Per serving the calories are 100, fat .5 and fiber 5 which I figure as 1.2 points. BUT there are 2 servings, so do I count it as 2.4 points or if I double the cals, fat and fiber and then calculate it comes to 3.3 points. So which do I use? TIA Kim
  9. ok, I need help! I've looked all over the store for the "oat bran" and still haven't found it. I checked the hot cereal section and all I see is the heat up oatmeal...is this the same thing? TIA Kim
  10. Can anyone give me the nutritional information on the chocolate snack cakes? I am trying to input them in fitday but DH threw out the box before I got a chance to! TIA Kim
  11. Ok, so tell me, are they really oaty tasting? I am not a fan of oats as of yet, but would like to try these. TIA Kim
  12. Throw the soy away! As many health benefits as it may have, it is VERY detrimental to a thyroid patient! It further supresses thyroid function which is already low in Hashi's. There are also veggies that you need to cook and other foods that are goitergens(sp?) Go to about.com and search for Mary Shomon. There is a list of foods that may cause problems. But please remember, it is a your mileage may very on the foods. Onions for example really mess me up when raw, but are fine when cooked. I know cauliflower is another one that should be cooked. HTH Kim

  15. HI! I found this and posted it under veggie lovers and WWCarol suggested I add it here too! Enjoy! The original Gardenburger Makes 6 veggie patties 2 tablespoons bulgur wheat 1 pound mushrooms, quartered (4 cups steamed) 1 cup diced onion (1/2 cup steamed) 1/2 cup rolled oats 2/3 cup cooked brown rice 1/2 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese 2 tablespoons shredded low-fat cheddar cheese 2 tablespoons low-fat cottage cheese 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder Dash pepper 2 tablespoons cornstarch Olive oil cooking spray 1) Add 1/4 cup boiling water to the bulgur wheat in a small bowl and let it sit or about 60 minutes. The wheat will swell to about double in size. 2) Steam the quartered mushrooms for 10 minutes or until tender; then remove them from your steamer; and replace with the onion. Steam the diced onion for 10 minutes or until the pieces are translucent. Keep these two ingredients separate, and set aside. 3) Add 1/2 cup of water to the oats and let them soak for about 10 minutes, until soft. 4) Drain any excess water from the bulgur wheat and oats then combine the grains with the steamed mushrooms, rice, cheeses, and spices in a food processor and pulse 4 or 5 times until ingredients are chopped fine, but not pureed. You want a coarse texture with some identifiable chunks of grain, mushroom, and cheese. 5) Pour the mixture into a bowl with the steamed onion and cornstarch, and mix well. 6) Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and set a large skillet over medium/low heat. 7) Spray the skillet with a light coating of olive oil cooking spray Measure 1/2 cup at a time of the patty mixture into the pan and shape with a spoon into a 3 3/4-inch patty that is approximately 1/2-inch thick. Cook the patties in batches for 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until light brown on the surface. 8) When all of the patties have been cooked in the skillet, arrange them on a lightly sprayed baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the oven. Be sure to turn them over halfway through the cooking time. You can serve the patties immediately or freeze them, like the original, when they have cooled. 9) If you freeze the patties, you can reheat them several ways. Simply spray a light coating of olive oil cooking spray on each side and heat each patty in a pan over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side until it is hot in the center: You can also use a grill to prepare the patties. Just be sure to spray each frozen patty with the oil, and be sure the flames are low. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Those are the best cooking methods; however; you can also prepare a frozen patty by microwaving it for 30 to 35 seconds, then turning the patty over and zapping it for another 30 to 35 seconds. Finally, you can heat a frozen patty in the microwave for 30 to 35 seconds, then place the partially defrosted patty in a toaster or toaster oven and cook it on medium heat until it's hot in the center. Tidbits If your food processor is too small to hold all of the ingredients, simply divide the ingredients and process one half at a time, or cut the recipe in half Bulgur wheat can be found in most health food stores, and even some supermarkets carry it. Nutrition Facts: Serving Size 1 patty Total Servings 6 Fat (per serving) 3g Calories (per serving) 135 It worked out to 18 points for the whole thing, so if you get 6 patties, that's 3 points each!
  16. Hi all! I make meringue cookies from time to time and they are usually between the size of a quarter and a half dollar. I've tried them with splenda and it really changed the consistency, they weren't bad, but not the same. I also tried with powdered egg white and they were very lumpy! The splenda doesn't rise like the sugar, but you could probably half it. Check out the splenda site, they tell youthings you may need to add for rising etc. HTH Kim
  17. HI Dawn....1st DH is NOT OP, just eating regular, although he is starting to pay attention to fat and cholesterol content in foods. DH ate it wrapped in FF tortillas and also with baked tostidos as a "dip", I ate it as a dip with the baked tostidos, haven't gotten up the nerve to try tortillas yet.LOL YES, I would definitely recommend to cottage cheese haters! I HATE cottage cheese, but could not tell it was in there! It didn't have the cottage cheesey taste at all! Also, I added some crushed red pepper to make it hotter since I used mild salsa! Kim
  18. Ok, I made this today and I have to say for a veggie hater, this was incredible! What an easy way to get a serving of veggies in! DH and I enjoyed it immensely! Kim
  19. Dawn, I made this and it was AWESOME! For someone who hates cottage cheese(me) I didn't even know it was there! my DH has devoured almost the whole thing! He rolls it in ff tortillas or dips with the baked tostidos! Thanks for sharing!! Kim
