Weight Watchers

So, a handful of us are doing Weight Watchers, and I thought it may be a big help to share some of our successes, our struggles, and more importantly our food ideas.

The current Weight Watchers Freestyle plan includes over 200 zero point foods, including:
  • Skinless chicken breast
  • Skinless turkey breast
  • Fish
  • Shelfish
  • Eggs
  • Tofu
  • Beans and lentils
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables (including corn and peas)
  • Nonfat unsweetened yogurt

A more exhaustive list can be found here.

Share away!

Since starting WW I've added a few things to my grocery staples to replace the carby, calorie-laden foods I enjoyed previously. They've made it much easier to stick to the plan!

Carby bready stuff:
Mama Lupe's Three Net-Impact Carbs Fresh Tortillas - 1 pt
Sara Lee Delightful 45 calorie bread - 1 pt per slice
Fit and Active 45 calorie bread - 1 pt per slice (Aldi's version of the Sara Lee bread)
Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread - 1 pt

Sauces and condiments:
Stubb's BBQ sauce - 1 pt per serving (2 tbsp)
Skinny Girl Honey Dijon - 0 pts
1 ranch seasoning packet in nonfat greek yogurt - 0 pts
Parkay butter spray - 0 pts
Frank's Red Hot or similar hot sauce - 0 pts
Sriracha (I usually don't track this because I use so little) - 1 pt per 1 tbsp
Soy sauce - 0 pts

I did something similar years ago and was fairly successful. However, I tend to be more successful on a keto diet. I won't be trying anything until after I get through birthdays, anniversaries, VBS, and camp. That means the end of July.

While we have fallen off the wagon recently due to multiple factors, we really enjoy this program, and will be starting again soon.

So beans are 0 points, and so are eggs. One of the kinds of Guerrero tostada shells are 1 point. Any combination of those three things are delicious together.

Living in Fiji was good.

No dairy, fat or hardly ever protein. Very plain food. Lost heaps.

Leiya and I restarted the program yesterday, so we're getting back into it, and it's tough! The cravings for junk food are real... I had to really restrain myself from eating chocolate and other junk food last night. It's tough to be a recovering sugarivore...
I am most definitely a guy.
