Weight Loss

I decided to not post a weight Saturday, since I just started this past Thursday. So my next official weigh-in will be next Saturday, the 12th.

My daughter and I are off to Wegman's this morning with a long list of healthy food to pick up. So we will be off to a good start later today that hopefully will carry me through the week. I had previously moved us all to brown rice, and whole wheat pasta, which Weight Watchers allows me to have on the Core Plan in unlimited quantities (within reason, of course). I try to buy whole grain foods and snacks when I see them in an effort to convert the family. Goldfish now come in a whole grain version.

Here are some other things I like to snack on:

When you are craving a dessert, try Jello Sugar Free - Fat-Free Instant Pudding, with skim milk. Once it is set, serve it with Fat-Free Reddi-Whip (the canned whipped cream). They have a Cheescake flavor that is pretty good, if you can find it. WW allows unlimited amounts of the pudding!

I like Triscuits, so I put some low-fat cheese, like Monteray Jack, on a few and microwave it until the cheese melts. Then I put a little salsa on each one. These are yummy but you need to eat them while they are warm to get a better taste.

I have a really good recipe for a Three Bean Salad that I will make a few times this week, because I can have all of that I want. Yes, I know, they are the musical fruit. But, they are full of protein and suppress your appetite for quite a while. Grimjack will not eat beans, so that is all mine. If anyone likes beans and wants the recipe, let me know. You could probably modify the recipe to use other veggies.

Good luck to everyone this week!

Love the shirt! I've been snacking on pretzels and the occasional Tricuit, too.

Tell Grim the beans will help with his blood sugar and cholesterol.

Good Sunday afternoon o you, Mrs Grim !

Whole grain rice and sugar free jello are two good ones !

You will do well. It is so obvious that you are determined, and combining words with action in small successful steps.

Wyatt - too much snacking for me today.

RT - Grim doesn't care, he still won't eat them!

LA - Hello, thanks for the encouragement.

I have been fat and never have been kidnapped yet.
