    YAY Sarah!!!

    Again, when you are concious of what you are eating, you tend to do better...even if your bad!

    Pizza was/is my weekness too! I just used flex points or ate the Lean Cuisine Pizzas. They are really good. And just make a big salad with it so you are satified!

      To keep from getting hungry remember to Snack snack snack! Also, protein keeps you fuller longer, so if you eat higher protein/lower starch meals, you won't get as hungry as fast..

      Also...chew gum! That always helps me when I get really hungry or just want to eat for no reason at all....

        I agree! I was thinking today about how when you're eating right you're actually eating a little something all day long!

        Jilly - here are some items that I find are helpful when I'm starving but don't have many ppoints left:

        - Hearts of Palm "salad" - mix with chopped tomotoes and add white vinegar - has a 1/2 point.
        - Pickles - high in sodium but can help when you're craving something salty
        - Western Alternativbe Bagel (1 point) w/ 1 Tbsp. light cream cheese (1 pt.) is 2 points total
        - A big apples chopped up into tiny peicves and then you can snack on it for like 20 minutes
        - the all powerful weighloss elixir - water.
        - microwave (light) popcorn

              Jilly, the girls have been a lifesaver for me. It's so nice to get some great suggestions of ways to get through the day.
              My favorite snacks:
              Weight Watchers Toffee Ice Cream Bars: 2 points (unbelievable!)
              Orville Redenbacher Smart Pop Mini Bags: 2 points (my favorite night time snack)
              Weight Watchers Yogurt: 1 point
              South Beach Breakfast Wraps: 4 points
              Sugar Free Jello: 0 points
              Sugar Free Jello Pudding: 1 point

              I'm always in a hurry and very easily can pack premade Weight Watchers, Lean Cuisine, and the above mentioned snacks to get me through the day!

              I usually save all my flexpoints for one bad meal a week, so I feel like I still can have my pizza and champagne and not be guilty!

              Keep it up- we're all in this together!

                  Sarah, I save all my flex points for the weekend too, because FI and I will usually have a few drinks. Thanks for the food tips

                  TammyM, I too had planned to start back to the gym on monday along with ww, but those plans got fouled up by the football game, so I figure at least I started one part, I can start the gym later this week or next week.

                    TammyM- Don't worry - Dec. 1st is perfect - give yourself enought ime to feel better and be stronger and then you can start!

                    I think I probably gained about a pound over TG but maybe not even - I feel good for the first time ina long time - not all sad and depressed about my weight - so maybe that's the best of all!

                    I still haven't re-started exercising - I'm not sure why... I am going to do it! Maybe I'll start on Dec. 1st with Tammy!

                    I was just thinking today how I never would have joined WW if it wasn't for everyone here (especially rebecca who's our WW vet!) and I would still be too sad to try on dresses. Now I have an even bigger problem - I'm in love with a super expensive dress hee hee hee... I prefer the new problem to the old one!

                      Ladies...
                      A really good zero point salad dressing are "Salad Spritzers" by Wishbone. The flavor I have is Balsalmic Breeze and 10 sprays is 10 calories, 1g fat 0 fiber. SO, zero points?? It is SOO good!!! You can just spray each bite!
