Thanks, gus! I moved my weight watchers weigh in day to tuesdays, because i usually take my diuretic on mondays. So i will see my first week results tomorrow. So far it looks like at least 2 lbs down, but i have been gaining like crazy before this. I blame peanut butter - i dont care for the "natural" kind. And bread. And cookies. And ice cream. And Sanders bumpy cake now coming in single serving size!

Weight watchers used to recommend a "zero point" soup that was basically a cabbage soup. Theyve changed the rules now so a veggie soup can have beans or lentils, or chicken or turkey breast, or tofu in it, and still be "free". Which means a light home made chili can be free! I made a pot last night, had some for breakfast this morning, will freeze a bunch!

i will tell you, unaluna~ if you don't put enough broth in your soup, you get stew~! now that summer is coming on,, i won't even cook my veggies; i'll even eat taters raw, they are much more filling that way, might be the crunch factor.

my fav bread, a coarse ground multi-grain, called Ecci Panis Boullet (easter bread round loaf), has gotten so pricey that i'm eating other kinds of bread out of the stale bread bin. this has definitely reduced my bread carbs~! also, i am making my corn bread from corn meal, no wheat, and very little sugar, so it's about half the calories as those packaged mixes. i must have my carbs and meat proteins, i just can't seem to get by without them. but i do eat a lot of beans, mostly home-cooked, no sugar, so that's good. (beans will stay good a long time in a very cold fridge.)

i have never been able to lose weight without help, acupuncture worked, and an anti-fungal med. i just don't move around enough. (i'm on high levels of supplemental oxygen and have to haul a tank around every time i leave the house.) so, i just live with being obese, and wish....

good luck to all you weight losers~!

I know. A lemon meringue pie jumped in my shopping cart yesterday. That ended up being dinner. I did leave half the crust. If my day is all out running around, i dont eat right. I need to work on that.

I am just as guilty as the rest. I went out and had BBQ last night. Sugars through the roof I had to take a ton of insulin.
