This is the first day all week that I've got no idea. We've only eaten out for dinner once all month, but I think I may take DD out tonight. She needs to get her hair cut, and wants it straightened, so it will take a while; we're going right after work.

We had free coupons for a donation project for Jersey Mike's subs (lunch today only), so I blew 15 points on a sub (which was amazing and worth it), so I don't have a whole lot to play with tonight.

This is the beginning of my second week doing WW, I went to my first meeting on Tuesday night. I lost 1.5 lbs, its not a huge loss but it wasn't a gain either. I am wondering if anyone here can help me figure out something though....What is the best way to figure out points when you are making recipes at home? It is really becoming a pain doing all this math!!

Thanks
Kim

I have eTools and I go to meetings. I don't think I could do WW without both.

It's time consuming, but you can use the recipe builder on eTools. I've started only getting recipes from sites that provide the detailed nutritional information and then plug it in to the tracker that way.

I don't know of one. If you're stressing out about points in the parks, why not try the Simply Filling technique? You can try to stick with power foods while at WDW and you'll get a lot of activity points with all that walking.

There are actually quite a few low/medium points plus options at Panera, their website has a great nutrition calculator. My personal favorite is the you pick 2 with Greek salad and low fat chicken noodle soup for 8pp

I've considered that...but it's the desserts/snacks that are going to kill me I love those cinnamon rolls from main st bakery!

You'll have 7 points per day from your weeklies plus you will be earning a number of points from walking. Maybe ... 15-20? I earn about 5 APs for walking about 2 miles. Are you on the DDP?

You sure do!

I wore my heart rate monitor (I've mentioned this before) during our last DLR trip and I was burning more than 1000 calories in something like 5 hours? I realized the reason why I've traditionally lost weight when I get back from DLR/WDW, even before I was trying to do so!

Yes, those will be problematic. Can you share the treats? You might actually *want* to; I know that I can't eat the bulk that I used to, and super-sugary things don't make me feel good with a lot less of it eaten nowadays.

I allowed myself at least one treat per day, and did my best to track. I did have a cinnamon roll. I cut it in half before I ever started eating and took the other half back to the hotel for breakfast the next day. That, along with all the walking, allowed me to lose over 3 pounds.

I had a lemon cookie yesterday (a delicious lemon cookie I might add) but holy moly did that give me heart burn! It truly was not worth it. Guess my body is used to me putting better stuff than that in it! Don't remember the last time I ate something that sweet...

I have to be really careful when I go off plan because it can really mess my stomach up. The only positive to it, is I stay on plan better out of fear of a boo boo belly!

I had to go back and check my tracker because I couldn't remember what I had last night. Progresso Light Beef Pot Roast soup (1 cup -- had the other cup for lunch) with half an ear of corn added to it. Some watermelon. Finished with a Berger cookie (4 points for the cookie -- but it is so worth those points).

We eat our big meal at lunch, eat a light dinner, and nothing after 7:00. This works for us because dh is retired on disability.
