Bandit, staying the same after movie popcorn is a
Weigh to go! I bet you'll see a loss this upcoming week. In the meantime, I'll keep my eye out for you for new recipes. A fallback snack dh and I have been having when hungry at lunch or at three o'clock is the WW version of a BLT.
any 1 pt. bread (Arnold's Sandwich Thins, WW 1pt. pita, etc)
1t. or thereabouts of real bacon crumbles
1t. of lite mayo or ff mayo
Toast the bread, spread with tiny bit of mayo, load up sandwich bread with loads of tomato and lettuce and a tiny sprinkling of bacon bits. (If you like to save money, buy a pound of bacon, cook it, freeze in strips and use one strip of bacon for your sandwich. )
Point count: with bacon bits 1 pt.
with 1 strip real bacon 2pts.
In any case it's like eating a salad on some bread and the tiny taste of bacon really makes it tasty.
Lin, I read several of your blogs and am fascinated by how well your week went with filling foods and how you discovered you could be un-hungry (I get it----not quite satisfied, but not uncomfortable either) with so few points. You are a good food analyst. Thanks!
As far as me, I like to set goals because they help remind me to stop eating at night because I have a focus and a short term goal to reach. Once I reach a goal, I set another small goal. For so many years I drifted being unhappy about maintaining over 200#, but not quite having the get-up-and-go to do anything about it. It's fabulous how we all tackle this weight loss thing in different ways and end up getting fit and thinner.
Yesterday I had lunch out with my friend and dd. I had a small turkey burger on a whole wheat bun and treated myself to what I think was 6 points of French fries. I imagined what a small portion of McDonald's FF would look like and ate that amount. They were good, by the way, and I didn't mind using the points on them. That put my lunch pretty high so for dinner I had a huge salad with 3 points of chicken (I had cooked a batch for the week earlier) and later on had a smoothis with a small banana to top off the evening. All in all, I was over by 4 points and am happy with that. The smoothie worked out very well since I haven't always been getting my milk in and it kept me full over night. This morning I am not starving for breakfast.
Okay--enough about me. Oh, not quite. Busy weekend coming up. A wedding on Saturday and my dear grandson's birthday party on Sunday. Luckily, Columbus Day is a holiday here and we'll have a relaxing day.
Have a great weekend and make yourself proud!
