This is a great board.

I have been studying all the posts on WW. I am rejoining at home. I will lose on my own and read these boards for tips. I have found some wonderful tips and information to help me so far.

My start day is monday and right now i am making my grocery list to have it all in the house before I start.

Any tips of what I should buy would be greatly appreciated!!

I'm all about planning. Plan out what you want to eat for next week - breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks. You don't say if you are cooking for just you or a family, that would make a difference!

I typically shop on Sunday for Mon - Friday and then shop again on Friday for the weekend (due to all the produce I buy).

Oatmeal (not the packaged kind)
Loaf of sprouted whole wheat bread
Deli turkey for sandwiches (only lasts about 3 days, so I sometimes need a mid week shopping trip for more perishables). I also like tuna sandwiches in whole wheat pita, or home made hummus, or salad or lentil soup!
5 horizon organic yogurts
Bag of baby carrots, red pepper, bag of sugar snap peas, box of grape tomatoes (I separate this into 5 baggies on Sunday night for healthy snacks every day of the work week).
Fruit for 5 days (tangelos are coming into season, yum).
Spicy mustard
Big bag of spinach leaves
Tomatoes for sandwiches (turkey, spinach leaves, tomato, spicy mustard)
Dinners for 4 nights, I usually make something that lasts for 2 nights each (like home made sun dried tomato pasta sauce with fresh basil - lasts at least 2 nights). I always pick my recipes in advance and buy what I need for dinners.

Staples I always try to have on hand:
Whole wheat pasta
Brown rice
La Tortilla factory whole wheat tortillas
Salsa
Morning star farm veggie burgers
Box of single serving Smart Pop kettle corn popcorn
Frozen fruit - blueberries, mangos, cherries especially
Dried granny smith apple rings from Trader Joe's
Dried wild blueberries from Trader Joe's (love these in oatmeal)
eggbeaters
Natural chunky peanut butter

Here's my food journal for yesterday - as an example:

B - 2 pieces whole grain toast with peanut butter

S - 1/2 pint blueberries

S - 1/2 cup low fat pineapple cottage cheese (usually it's yogurt, just felt like something different for a change)

L - turkey sandwich on whole grain, tomato, spinach leaves, spicy mustard, cup of Pacific brand roasted red pepper and tomato soup

S - tall non fat sugar free vanilla latte, half of an enormous chocolate/toffee biscotti

S - orange

S - cut up veggies - carrots, grape tomatoes, red pepper strips, sugar snap peas

D - home made pasta sauce (sun dried tomato, artichoke hearts, red cooking wine, veggie crumbles, onion, garlic, fresh basil) over 2 oz whole wheat rotini

Thanks so much. I have mostly vegtables on my list so far and breads.

What is the best butter to use. I use to use I Can't Believe it's Butter.

I hope I don't have a hard time with sugar. i won't use Splenda or Aspartame products.

I don't use butter at all (I don't like the taste on foods and I don't bake). If I were to buy butter, I would buy the real stuff and not margarine. Margarine is scary. For sugar, I just use regular sugar. It doesn't come up for me often.
