I’m just going to try to eat as healthy as I can while there and allow myself a couple of indulgences during the trip. I figure with all that walking, it should work out.Just wanted to say Hi - I joined WW in early January and I've dropped 40 pounds so far. I like Freestyle better than plans I've used in the past...or maybe I'm just in a better place? Anyway, I'm still going strong!
But I am concerned about our upcoming (in January 2019) WDW trip. I need to be confident that no matter what happens there, I will be able to come home and get right back on track. So I figured I would find some encouragement here on the WISH board!
I like pasta too. I have found a pasta made from vegetables. Sounds nasty but it was pretty good. I had it with turkey meatballs. They also sell meatballs made from eggplant which were surprisingly good as well.May I ask what you typically have for dinner?
Wow, 37 lbs, that's great! I totally understand about getting sick of the things you eat. I don't have a typical lunch yet, as I'm still trying to figure out what works for me. It usually involves a hard-boiled egg (which I really like and ate pre-WW) and fruit. I really struggle because I'm a carb girl! I love all things bread and pasta (and those points add up)!! That makes the program challenging for me, but I'm still trying to work it out.
I make this same thing except I use the extreme lean ground turkey and add some taco seasoning!Ok, here’s a 0 point lunch I have been enjoying-a couple good spoonfuls of fresh salsa, black beans (I use about 1/2 cup-even though they’re “free”) and leftover corn from the cob-I have also added tuna. It’s very filling and the flavor from the salsa is enough so you don’t need any dressing.
I am very overweight/obese, so I get a lot of daily points, so I probably have more wiggle room than some. I find myself eating a lot of leftovers from dinner. I tend to make at least one big batch of somethinge every week.I re-joined in Feb and have been doing quite well... lost close to 37 lbs and am just at my first goal of being under 200 before heading to DL for my birthday... I have to get my act together though because I am bored of the foods I am eating. I know when this happens I will start slipping and then it will go downhill from there...
For lunch today I have a green salad with some taco flavored extra lean ground beef a little mango salsa and a spoonful of light sour cream.... I also got some small wraps and I have one made for my dinner before my second job... I put some low fat cheese spread, a couple slices of turkey breast and rolled it up...
What are your go-to lunches?
My DH and older DS really like it too (my little ones tolerate it)! It is nice that I can just add some kind of carb on the side and toppings on the side and then I can add as much as my points can handle and I'm not cooking different meals for everyone.Thank you for the suggestions!
The chicken chili looks really good-and I love Ina Garten’s recipes!
Awesome! That's about what I've lost, 15 pounds. Went for my annual today and realized I had gained 6 pounds in 9 months (to the weight I was 3 months ago when I started WW). 8 more pounds to go but wanted to do it by my Oct 6 cruise. Won't likely happen but maybe 5 pounds by then.I'm down a pound this week. That puts me 5.8 lbs since restarting on August 9th. 15.2 lbs total this year
I might try. We got 1/2 off HelloFresh so I got two weeks of that (only got one week so far). I also am getting a discounted week with Gobble and Dinnerly. I don't even necessarily eat the meals (or only eat parts), but my 12 year old can cook those by himself for everyone else (he does better with things measured and the steps listed).
Yeah, my DD-19 cooked for us all summer. She really enjoyed it. And so did I...LOL.I might try. We got 1/2 off HelloFresh so I got two weeks of that (only got one week so far).
