    I usually try to be really good Sunday- lunchtime Friday and then do what I want for the weekend. It may not be the best strategy, but it works for me. Good luck!

    I am an April 2012 bride who has just joined weight watchers a week ago.  I would like to loose 10-15 pounds and so far getting use to logging my food etc.  I typically don't eat bad, however; I love my beer.  Any do and don'ts would be great as I'm very very new to WW.

     

    thanks ladies, and good luck with reaching your goals.

      I've been doing that as well.  For me the workweek is easier to be disciplined than the weekend.  FI will eat anything damn near and with his schedule being so crazy he's willing to try anything.  I have never been a big meat eater so I'm in love with any type of fish, seafood dishes and most of my recipes are that.  I need to add some variety for him and just ordered the weight watcher cook book.  I also have rachel ray's 30 minute or less book.....  I made cajun catfish (baked), brown rice and grilled asparagus.

        That cajun catfish meal sounds good!!! Before we were engaged we did "Meatless Mondays" and those worked for us. It was so hard preparing for all veggie meals and we even had a disastrous vegan meal experience, but we lost weight. I just made WW chicken parmesan last night, and it was a winner.

            I didn't, I just use the iPad app and it's amazing. I've been using the website too. Have you found any other good recipes outside of the cookbook?

              So ladies, what are some of your "go-to" Weight Watcher meals?

               

              I've been getting a lot of good ideas and recipes from www.skinnytaste.com

               

              Some of my favorites are:

               

              Chicken Burgers (4 points), a scoop of pasta sauce (1 point), a slice of italian mix cheese (1 point) and a whole wheat/light bun (1 point) = 7 point chicken parm sandwich

              Mahi Mahi Burgers (4 points), a scoop of peach/mango salsa (1 point) and a bun (1 point) = 6 point mahi mahi burger

              Sweet potato (5 points), drizzle of olive oil (1 point), pinch of nutmeg/cinnamon/salt = 6 point sweet potato fries

                  Love love love.... grilled pineapples (I got the email today as well).  I do them every year but soak them in brandy and honey.  Don't know how many WW points that would be though LOL
