banana cream bowlie!

So.. why I like weight watchers..   If Im really good and plan and count and think ahead.. I can plan yummy good treats for myself to have...  
this is what I ate today... ALOT!
breakfast:  2 pieces of saralee 45 calorie bread toasted, with 2 tbsps of PB2 on it.. (thats this AWESOME powdered peanuts that you mix with water to make peanut butter.. that is only 1 point.. instead of 5 for regular peanut butter..) and 1/2 a grapefruit with several cups of tea for breakfast. total points 3
then for a snack at work, I had:  a pack of belevita breakfast cookies.. (OMG.. love them!) and a banana. total points 4
for lunch, a salad with a ww cheese stick and a bowl of strawberrys, melon and grapes and a 1/3 cup of almonds... total points 6.
then I had a skinnycow cookie bar thingy.. total points 3
for dinner.. I had a left over hotdog with about 1/2 cup of saurkraut and a hardboiled egg.  total points 6
then I had this:
banana cream bowlie
I call this my banana cream bowlie!   Sort of like banana cream pie.. 
2 lowfat graham crackers broken up, 1 banana pudding cup, a small banana cut up and a scoop of lowfat coolwhip!  woohoo!!  total, 5 delicious points!  yuppers.. I'm a happy camper!
and hopefully I'll be down another pound tomorrow night!  fingers crossed!
wish me luck!!

Hope you lost weight today. I didn't go. I have allergies so bad that I've been in bed for a couple of days. Oh Well! Next Tuesday weigh in and hope I lost several lbs. :-)

I always liked the WW uses common sense and gives you lots of choices. I don't know the details of the new points system but I still follow the old one in my head....I know exactly what 3/4 C of Cheerios looks like-LOL! You're doing great...keep giving us more of your tips.
Loved your last post about the nests. I still don't have my Easter stuff away and the birds and nests out...gotta get it done! Your garland is adorable!!

Hells bells... don't you know your supposed to eat desert first? lol

Nan said...

Oh good going you are learning how to portion out and still eat some treats. I have success with the Paleo way of eating but if I veer off and eat carbs the weight will start to come back so it requires lots of vigilance but all weight loss does, that is really the hardest part not to start back eating what put on the weight.
