I'm going to come out of lurker mode to join you guys on the food journal thread because you crack me up! Green beans for a snack?!

A little background info on me: I'm 5'5" and weigh 160. About 2 years ago, I was up to 172, joined WW, and got down to 143. (Can you say yo-yo?) I'm very active: tennis 2-3 times a week, bike ride, garden, aerobic tapes in my basement. This sometimes leads me to feel that I can eat anything I want and "I'll just burn it off." Well, now I have about 17 pounds to "burn off." Oh, and I'm still on a high from the Patriots winning the Super Bowl! (Big fan and season ticket holder.)

I'm not too sure on the points of everything--I'm going to have to brush up on them. Here goes:

Thursday (4/18)

Exercise
Walk 2 miles
Tennis (doubles) 1.5 hours

Breakfast
1 Pop Tart (frosted) - 4
1/2 cup 1% milk - 1

Snack
1 granola bar - 2

Lunch
1 slice rye bread - 1
ham - 3
1 tsp lite mayo - .5
hot peppers - 0
1/2 slice cheese - 1
1 cup strawberries - 1
4 oz. yogurt - 3

Dinner
2 eggs - 4
2 slices cheese - 4
mushrooms - 0
2 pieces rye toast - 2
1/2 tbsp Brummel & Brown - 1

Snack
1 handful of popcorn - .5
5 corn chips - .5
1 Sam Adams - 3

The cold Sam Adams was so delicious after playing tennis in the heat. It was worth every point! But man, I can't believe the way the points add up. I thought I was really good, and I came up to 31 points for the day!

Welcome Lee! Glad you "came out"

On the green bean topic - when you are out of points, you're out of points. Name me a better 0 point snack? (For the record, these are canned green beans with lots of yummy SODIUM!

Thanks for the welcomes! I think this is really going to help me a lot. After tennis last night, they tried to get me to eat a piece of birthday cake (with my Sam Adams), but I didn't because I didn't want to have to post it here!

I have a challenge today at lunch. We're going out to a great fish market with the best fish and chips. I've got to really behave until then. So far, so good. Hopefully, I won't be eating a can of green beans for a snack tonight!

Friday

Breakfast
1 cup oatmeal 2
1/2 cup 1% milk 1
1/2 tbsp brown sugar .5
Subtotal = 3.5

Snack
1 cup strawberies 1
Subtotal = 4.5

Lunch
Fish & chips 16
(I got this number from the old food companion, and I think it's pretty accurate.)
Subtotal = 20.5

Ditto the bad weekend thought. Two Heinekens on Saturday and two Sam Adams on Sunday after my tennis match = not a good thing. It's so much easier during the week!
