Yay - for both of us! And even though you didn't count over the weekend at least you saw results from during the week and that can be very motivating! Great job!!! And honestly in my opinion 1.6 pounds in a week is terrific (if I do say so myself wink.gif) so you don't need to qualify it.

Embrace it! yay!!!!
Congrats, so happy for you!!!!!

Spaghetti squash is an amazing vegetable! If you guys have never tried it go to the store and buy one! I had one for the first time last night. It's basically this big yellow oval squash. It's hard to cut so either soften it first in the microwave or get the producer department at your grocery store to cut it in half when you buy it.

 

Bake:

Then bake it for 45 minutes @ 350 degree - cut side down on some cooking spray. Flip after 45 minutes and bake on other side for another 5-10 minutes.

 

Nuke:

Cut in half. Lay cut side down in a pyrex or other type of microwaveable dish. Pour in 1/2 cup of water. Cover with plastic wrap and cook for 7-10 minutes

 

Point:

0 points per cup

0.5 point for 2 cups

2 points for 3 cups

 

Eat with:

- Pasta sauce!

- Salt, pepper and a tiny bit of olive oil

How to Prepare for a Meal out:

 

1. (Most important!) Avoid places you know sap your resolve! For me (for example) it means I cannot go to Mexican restaurants right now. I just can't help it - when I arrive I want chips, salsa, margaritas and everything covered in cheese... I mean you wouldn't ask a recovering alcoholic to go to his favorite bar! Try and pick "safe" places where you know you can get healthy food.

2. Get the menu in advance (online, email, fax, phone, etc.)

3. See if the restaurant you are going to has a website with nutrition (a lot of chains do).

4. If not, try and find a restaurant with a similar menu and check out the nutrition.

5. Decide what you're going to eat ahead of time.

6. Do not look at the menu when it arrives - otherwise you may be tempted!

7. Order first. This way you order before you hear all the other things people are going to order.

8. If you can ask them not to bring the bread/chips/whatever (sometimes this isn't possible due to the other people at the table).

9. Ask them to bring you a half portion - offer to pay full price if you have to! That way you don't have to food eithe ron your plate OR taken home to eat later (which is what i end up doing...)

10. Consider ordering off the appetizer menu

11. Share a dish with your FI/DH/Friend

12. Ask for balsamic vinegar instead of salad dressing

13. Save up your points during the day but don't arrive hungry! Eat something (an apple, a bowl of soup, whatever) before you go.

 

I just figured I'd share this info because I think this is where a lot of people (me specifically) go horribly wrong!

Great tips Kash. Also, if ordering a full entree ask for a to go box to be delivered with meal to store half your meal so you won't be tempted to continue eating. Plus it will provide lunch for tomorrow.

I just finished a 10 day detox, and while my skin is glowing, I did not lose a pound. smile27.gif It's so weird. We went out to eat last night, and the good thing about detox for me, is it puts food and alocohol not in my high priority category, which is where it usually is! So, hopefully now I can stick to my weight watchers diet, and not drink so much during the weekends!

 

My fitting is in 3 weeks, and my wedding is 3 months today! I really need to get myself losing some pounds.
