Just checking in! I'm not on plan at all! I'm in survival mode! Not binging, but definitely not eating on plan!

I'm doing major hopping around Canada, living in hotels, and switching timezones every other day!

Hard to complain, though, with the view of the CN tower and the downtown Toronto skyscape from my window! (though I will complain that I wish they'd wash the windows more!)

Good luck ladies with your plan this week ladies... thinking of all of you!

Ok help me out girls. What did we ever decide about dry roasted edamame? Does it count as a serving of beans, or a serving of nuts? I actually FOUND some and enjoy them quite a bit, but I don't know which category they go in, and I don't want to mess up.

01-24-2011, 02:11 PM
Do you mean the shelled beans? If so, I'd count them as nuts. They really are soy nuts.

Today I had for breakfast: south beach egg cups with zucchini, Canadian ham, and green pepper in them and a v8 low sodium
At 10:30 I got hungry again so I had a sugar free jello and a cheese stick

Lunch I had a diet coke and some "Mexican chicken" (as my mom calls it), which is chicken, eggplant, tomatoes, onions, a little bit of low fat cheese etc, with a few eggs to hold it all together.

At like 2 pm I got a venti skinny vanilla latte (from Starbucks) to help avoid my afternoon "snack machine" cravings.

5 pm: I am planning to eat 1/4 of a cup of dry unsalted peanuts.

after I come home from cross fit I have this yummy cabbage soup (south beach phase 1 friendly) that my mom made me.

Looking at this do you see anything I could improve on or remove to make my weight loss happen for me?
I don't feel hungry at all or feel any cravings, so far so good!
Thanks for the help!

01-24-2011, 10:58 PM

z-it's my understanding on the new pp plan that everyone has a minimum of 29 points, weeklies and activity points are additional. If you're figuring your dailies at 23 you are definitely not eating enough - or are you following the old plan? I think you aren't eating enough.

01-27-2011, 08:02 PM
Posting for two days
b-double fiber english muffin, almond butter
l-spaghetti squash and kale gratin
d-crockpot lasagna w/ ww noodles

b-banana berry smoothie w/ tofu
L-spagetti squash and kale gratin
d-leftover lasagna

Had an off plan snack on the way home (curse you Starbucks!) but nothing too bad.

01-27-2011, 09:22 PM
B- broccoli "quiche"
S- celery, red pepper and Laughing Cow Light cheese (2)
L- kale and turkey ham, milk
S- cottage cheese
D- salmon, kale and mushrooms, white beans
7:30- red pepper and L Cow (1)

I felt like I should have had something with the cottage cheese. Was it OK to eat it alone?

01-27-2011, 10:49 PM
TLK-I don't see why eating the cottage cheese alone is a problem. Looks like you got plenty of veggies in with your other meals and snacks.

01-27-2011, 10:52 PM
z-it's my understanding on the new pp plan that everyone has a minimum of 29 points, weeklies and activity points are additional. If you're figuring your dailies at 23 you are definitely not eating enough - or are you following the old plan? I think you aren't eating enough.

so it doesn't change based on your weight anymore? that doesn't make sense to me. people who weigh less need fewer points per day to lose.

anyway, with wine and an additional snack, it brought me up to 29 on the dot.

I figure my points based on my planned meals and then stick other things in if i need a few more points.

01-27-2011, 11:09 PM
Phase II

B: V8, 2 boiled eggs
S: RF cheese stick
L: Salmon, salad, veggie, hummus
S: Skinny latte
D: Chili with ground turkey, RF cheese, cauliflower
S: Almond butter

01-28-2011, 07:01 AM
It does change with your weight but from what I understand, 29 is the minimum for anyone. People who weigh more have more than 29 points. Are you using the new points calculator or the old? All the point value of food has changed with the pp+ plan.

Friday Phase 2 - adding in a fruit
B: kefir, apple with pb (was SO delish)
S: edamame
L: lentil soup with ww pita, roasted broccoli
S: chia fresca
D: Veggie burger and zuccini hash browns
PP: 32. Lentil soup is 4 points per cup, and I am having two cups.

01-28-2011, 09:47 AM
I'm using the new pp calculator and everything. Ah,ok, I understand it will never go below 29, but if I weigh more, could be more than 29. ok, got it.

down 3 lbs. this week. whoo!

1: smoothie (1/2 banana, 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1/2 c. skim milk, 1 scoop vanilla protein, spirulina)
2: kale salad w/ thai peanut dressing, clementine
3: amazeball
4: black bean enchiladas (using ezekiel tortillas)
5: glass 'o' wine

exercise: 60 min. kickboxing

01-28-2011, 10:40 AM
Really...29 points?? That's amazing. I was at 24 ppd when I did WW and by Friday was so hungry I would lose it.

Update to Thursday:
w/dinner; p/b bread, additional cup of yogurt, h/b egg, 3 OP cookies (from a Kayla's kitchen recipe); 3 was probably too many, but it saved me from chocolate cake and pizza

Friday! Phase II

B: 1 full egg and 3 whites w/1 slice of bacon
S: Cottage chz (1%) w/berries
L: Chickpea and spinach stew
S: h/b egg

Phase 1-
B- Broccoli "quiche"
S- 1 egg salad in lettuce wrap, milk
L- salad with chicken and beans, eaten out as errands will take me hours
S- almonds, 15
D- cabbage and turkey ham, milk
S- Probably edemame or veggies and hummus

Day 4. Down 1 pound. :(

01-28-2011, 10:52 AM
Amy, the points values of food have changed so you are starting your day with more points, but may be spending more points than before on certain kinds of food.

Z-what is an amazeball? Congrats on the 3 lbs.!!

01-28-2011, 01:29 PM
Phase 2

B: scrambled eggs w/sundried tomatoes and rf swiss cheese, 1/2 grapefruit, milk
S: celery, laughing cow cheese
L: leftover roasted squash and chicken sausage
S: peppers and hummus
D: salmon,roasted broccoli, zucchini and tomato bake
S: greek yogurt, blueberries and walnuts

01-28-2011, 01:40 PM
MMC - amazeballs are little protein balls - 4 pts. per ball.

2 T. protein powder (i use chocolate)
2 T. almond or peanut butter
2 T. shredded, UNsweetened coconut
1 T. agave
pinch of cinnamon and sea salt
1 small square dark chocolate

throw the protein powder through salt into a food processor and pulse until it comes together. break up the chocoolate with your hands and throw it in and pulse a few more times until it's broken up. roll into 4-5 balls and refrigerate.

They are really great little snacks - especially when you're craving something sweet. They haven't caused cravings for me - in fact, they have kind of put out any lingering cravings. maybe because of the protein powder addition?

01-29-2011, 08:25 AM
Saturday Phase 2
B: kefir, zuccini hash browns (these came out more as an omlette for me, but still good)
S: nf latte, apple
L: lentil soup, ww pita, sliced red pepper
S: lf cheese, roasted chick peas
D: my MIL is making chili. I'll have a small portion with no rice.
PP: 33

01-29-2011, 11:56 AM
Phase 1 Day 5
B- spinach w/ 2 egg beaters scramble
S- plain yogurt
L- chop salad- spinach, cabbage, peppers, zucchini, celery, kidney beans, vinaigrette
S- almonds
D- kale and turkey ham,
S- 1 egg salad lettuce roll-up

I forgot to get on the scale before I ate, which may be a good thing as I'm not really losing. I'll just pretend like I am, because I know I will eventually. :) I wonder if I'm eating too much food, but again I'm trying to break such a habit I've gotten into of eating constantly. Every day it's a victory for me just to eat only these 6 times a day, and stay within the food guidelines. I know the weight will sort itself out. (I keep telling myself that.)

01-29-2011, 12:00 PM
Phase II

B: V8, 2 eggs
S: RF cheese stick
L: Salad with kidney beans, veggies, hummus
S: Skinny latte
D: Leftover Mexican casserole, roasted veggies, steamed cauliflower

01-29-2011, 01:35 PM

L: leftover roasted squash and chicken sausage
S: peppers and hummus
S: 15 almonds, V8
D: chicken, leek, and barley soup
S: greek yogurt, blueberries

Saturday is my weigh in day and I knew it wouldn't be good this week since it was my first week on phase2. I was only down .2 lbs but at least it's something. i just need to stay positive and keep going.

01-30-2011, 07:29 AM
Never say only as you are working hard and are keeping to your goals. :mouse:
