Meals for 8/25/09

It is day 2 of WW and we are doing really well. I was surprised how I wasn't as hungry as I have been before doing the plan. I think it is because I was doing more of the "filling foods" and not eating useless calories. It is nice having things like those 100 calorie packs but they are just useless calories and my experience with sugary things is it makes me more hungry. Here is what I had for breakfast:

Banana = 2 points
WW petite bagel = 1 point
WW cream cheese = 1 point
WW Strawberry Yogurt = 1 point
Water = 0 points
Total points for breakfast = 5 points!

After this meal I was very satisfied. Not overly full and not hungry. It is 2 1/2 hours later and I am still not hungry for lunch yet. I will update this post with my lunch and dinner so keep checking back:) Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Ok..now for lunch. I wasn't even hungry but it was 1:00 and I knew if I didn't eat I wouldn't be hungry for dinner. The thing with WW is you HAVE to eat all your points for the day to lose weight. If you don't your body will think your starving yourself and it won't allow you to lose. So here is what I had:

Smart Ones Steak & Ranch Grilled Flatbread = 6 points
Snyder's pretzels (good replacement for chips) = 2 points
Chocolate Jello pudding cup = 2 points
Water = 0 points
Total points for lunch = 10 points

This is what it looks like after its cooked...it was really good! And very filling! I would usually eat chips with something like this but that would use 3 times the points..so I do the pretzels. I also usually would eat the sugar free chocolate Jello pudding cups but I still had some regular ones left so I didn't want to waste them. The difference is one point. The sugar free ones to me are actually better tasting. Tonight we are having Pork Chops & Applesauce...stay tuned:)


The Pork Chops and Applesauce hit the spot tonight...its one of my favorite meals. It wasn't until I met Kevin that I started dipping my pork chops into my applesauce...I thought it would be gross but it is so good!! Don't knock it till you try it! :) I realized while making dinner that I counted the meat wrong. I put it as 8 oz divided by 2 which would be 4 oz each. Kevin had extra points left for the day so he ate his 6 1/2 ounces and I ate 4 oz of mine and put the rest in the fridge for a snack tomorrow.

4 oz pork chop (the picture is 6 1/4 but I left some for tomorrow) = 3.5 points
3/4 cup corn = 1.5 points
1/2 cups Pork Stove Top stuffing = 4 points
1/2 cup applesauce = 1.5 points
1 1/4 cups Milk = 3 points
Total Points for dinner: 13.5 (WW rounds it up to 14)

For dessert I will be having a WW Mint Ice Cream cone which is a total of 2 points.



  1. Isn't it amazing how much food you can have when it's good for you? I agree with you on the 100 calorie packs. When I was losing my 150 pounds they didn't have those, instead they had "Snackwell" cookies which were dangerous for me!!!

    Congratulations, and I wish you all the success in the world!

  2. Those 100 calorie packs are pure evil!!!

  3. Pork chops and applesauce... lol Is that a brady bunch joke?
