My 1st Points Plus Weigh In & This Weeks Menu

by DanicasDaily on December 5, 2010

Happy Sunday all! I’ll be the first to admit I couldn’t wait to get up this morning and go to my very first Weight Watchers Points Plus Weigh In to see my results.  I just “felt” skinnier and even managed to stay away from the scale ALL WEEK until this morning.

Are you guys ready……..DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!! 

I am so EXCITED to tell you that I LOST 3.6 lbs today!!! 

That is such a HUGE number for me as even on my best weigh in days, it’s around maybe 2 lbs.  Have I ever told you I LOVE Weight Watchers Points Plus?!  What’s even cooler ~ my entire meeting of 23 people LOST 56 lbs all together!

Thanks to everyone for all your awesome Tweets and Facebook comments congratulating me today….Your support is phenomenal.

I didn’t want to eat ANYTHING before I weighed in, so I took my breakfast on the go.


ZERO POINT BANANA of which I think everyone in my meeting concurred we have been eating 1 a day since they became FREEE!

7 Cashews (2 points+) ~ The ONLY way I can eat this little is to count them out and put the bag away BEFORE I put any in my mouth….otherwise, it’s fair game.

After my meeting I figured I deserved a little “reward” so I met The Husband at Starbuck’s.

Grande Fat Free Chai Tea Latte – now 6 Points+ ~ Crazy, but, worth it!

Starbuck's Christmas Cup

I spent the day getting organized for the week ~ menu planning, grocery shopping, doing laundry, mailing off The Points Plus Calculator winner packages and working on the group site.

Basil Pesto Pizza

I didn’t really want to break to make something so I decided on leftover Basil Pesto Veggie Pizza (13 points+)


Plus the BIGGEST PEAR I could find in the produce section Open-mouthed smile ( ZERO pts+)


One thing that hasn’t changed in points plus values is one of my FAVORITE dressings from Trader Joe’s ~ Cranberry Walnut Gorgonzola.

Cranberry Salad Dressing

1 Points+ Per Tablespoon and it tastes like REAL dressing, not diety, fat free like!

Cranberry Walnut Gorgonzola Salad DressingLow Fat Salad Dressing

Simple Organic Arugula Salad with cherry tomatoes and 2 Tbsp’s Cranberry Walnut Dressing (2 pts+)


I probably could’ve made a different choice for dinner, but, ironically after stocking the kitchen up, I didn’t want to “cook”.

Enter “Fake” Chinese! Ling Ling Natural Chicken & Vegetable Pot stickers (10 for 14 pts+)


Today was the last day of my week and even though I “tried” to bust into a good portion of my WPA today, I am still ending my week with 43 WPA left – AWESOME!

Here is what we have on the MENU this week (Dinners):

* Carne Asada Steak Salad

* Spaghetti Squash Torta (I am really going to make it this time!)

* Mushroom Chicken over Brown Rice

* Giada’s Baked Macaroni & Cheese “Cupcakes”

* CEiMB Beef Stroganoff over Egg Noodles with a Big Salad

* Coconut Cashew Chicken Finger Salad

Totally subject to changing my mind if I find another recipe or something else sounds good Open-mouthed smile


1.  What is on your menu this week?

I’d LOVE to know what you are cooking up this week as I do not think I can ever get enough great recipes to make Winking smile

Night all!
