Weight Watchers Foodies - Fall 2012 edition [old]

Hi all,

I started a new thread because the other one was getting unwieldy. I did read it though, and it seems I wasn't the only one to fall off the wagon over the summer, huh? I started WW at home in November last year, went down by 24 lbs by Memorial Day. So happy, but towards the end I was sick w/no appetite for a month (I hate to say, but being sick is great for losing weight). Then, got healthy, started eating, stopped keeping a diary, and voila, 10 lbs back, just like that. So this week has been the re-start week, true journaling, every day. Planning what I eat before I eat it so I know I'm on target.

My dinner today was outstanding and at 7 pts, I'm feeling like a genius. 6oz of mahi, cooked in pam w/s&p until a nice crust formed. Sprinkled with lime juice at the last moment. Served on 2 tbps of bulgur cooked in 1/2 of broth I used to deglaze the fish pan, with FIVE carrots that I roasted for an hour at 300 until the were candy sweet and caramelized. I should really eat more fish. The recipe builder called it 3pts for 6oz of mahi.

Other good stuff that I've had this week for dinner. 1. 1.5 cups angel hair tossed with about 1/2 sauteed onion and sliced garlic, 1/2 lb of spinach leaves, and 1/2 can of chunk tomatoes. Yum, big, and about 10 pts. Scrambled 2 eggs w/okra, green onions, fresh tomatoes, and a chunk of brie. Also yum, about 9 pts.

This weekend is the farmers market. I think I'll look for baby artichokes to snack on. Anyone like me who just eats to keep busy will keep busy scraping these leaves, with negligble calories (don't dip in butter!). Also want to get a cabbage, some squash, kale, and whatever else might make a nice veggie soup. I can add beans to that and have it for dinners for low points.

B'fast at work - pretty much a rotation of oatmeal, greek yogurt, and an egg on a skinny english muffin (i.e. 100 cal).
