+++Thursday Thirteen #9 +++

As you know, I’m trying to lose my Weight. I joined Weight Watchers® to reach my goal.
With this TT I want to bring Weight Watchers a little closer to you.

Weight Watchers uses a FlexPoints® Plan. According to my weight, I have a number of points for each day (mine is 22). And every food and drink has its own value. So I can really eat everything, I just have to keep within my daily points. I can earn Bonus Points with doing some exercise. And I earn a lot Bonus Points® coz you all give me minutes of exercise. Please keep on commenting! You help me a lot.
Okay, enough blabla, let’s start the list.


13 of my favourite foods (and their value) according to my Weight Watchers®

1. Potatoes!!!!! I can eat as much as I want (for one meal) and it costs me only 2 points.
A yummy recipe is Potatoes with self-made cream: 20 tablespoons 0,1% fat yoghurt (2,5 points), herbs (whatever you like), mineral water. Mix and enjoy! YUMMY!! And only 4,5 Points® all together.

2. Broccoli. Most of the vegetables have no points. Broccoli is enriched with calcium. That’s really good coz you have to take calcium 2 times a day.

3. Paprika and tomatoes (0 points). You need veggies and/or fruits five times a day.

4. Chicken. A medium piece of chicken-breast has 2 Points.

5. Crisp bread. One slice has 0,5 points. I prefer “de beukelaer- Light and cross”.

6. Ham. One slice has 1 point.

7. Skimmed Milk. It brings me calcium and one glass has 2 points.

8. Diet coke. Coke light lemon. No points for that.

9. Oven Chips. 250g (0,55lb) have 8 points. Tomato Ketchup has 0 points for 4 tablespoons. That is something I don’t eat regularly. But sometimes I’m in the mood for it. YUMMY...

10. Tea. In all varieties. You have to drink at least 2 litres per day. And you should prefer Tea or Water. If I want to sweeten it, I use Sweet ’n’ Low. Unfortunately you don’t really get it over here. And since I found a cheap online shop for it, I have to visit Starbucks on and off and get me a small cup of coffee to take “some” Sweet ‘n’ Low home ;)

11. Self-made crisps. Just cut Potatoes in very small slices, flavour it with spices that you like, and bake them on a low temperature until they’re cross. For that they are made of Potatoes and nothing more, they have 2 points for as much as you eat at once.

12. Noodles. Eat as much as you want and only 4 points. If I choose wholemeal noodles, only 3 points.

13. Nut Brownies. *YUMMY* (again not a daily food...)

That’s all for today. We now have to go the doctors. Hubby and I caught a bad cold. Sore throat, can’t breath, feeling flabby and so on.


Thanks for stopping by, please don’t forget to leave a comment to keep me excercising,
HUGS,

Interesting. I have never been to WW. I couldn't keep track of all those points. Too much work for me. I eat in "The Zone." No more than 20 grams of fat per day. I focus on "nonfat" foods -- yogurt, cheese, take a bottle of salad dressing with me, etc.

My list is posted, too!

BeckyD said...

Keep it up! Off to a good start, and I am sure you can do it!

Great list!

Chickadee said...

I like the idea of excercising for comments...I may have to do that.

I LOVE tea, especially peppermint tea. Mmmm

THanks for visiting my 13 !

crygibb said...

Thanks for sharing some info on WW. I always wondered how the points worked. Great list of food. I like potatoes too, but i dont make them often b/c my kids will not all eat them.
Good luck with the excerizing, and keep up the good work. Ill be back to post comments, to help you out.
Happy TT.

Karen said...

I don't even want to know how many points my favorite foods would cost. If I knew, I might have to do something about them >G<

Susan said...

hi Sonny! potatoes and broccoli! yum!! that's what I had for dinner last night! been craving baked potatoes lately so have made several in the last week. For the broccoli I started blanching it and keeping it cold in the fridge - yum!!!! Good luck with WW - a friend of mine really made progress with them so I know you'll do great! thanks for visiting my TT ! happy day...

Dragonheart said...

Yummy foods! Good luck with the weight loss.

Jaci Burton said...

One of the best things about the WEight Watchers program is that you can actually EAT. Just in moderation, which is the key to successful weight loss.

You can do it and the best thing is you don't have to deny yourself.

Great TT!

Start exercising, here's a comment.

My 13 are up.

Christine said...

Good for you for committing to this. Trying to lose weight is very hard, but it sounds like you're off on the right foot.

I love tea and drink it all the time. I used to survive on coffee, but had to give it up because of my tummy. :(

Rashenbo said...

Good luck on your diet. I really hope you hit your goals! :)

I'm afraid I just love food way too much!

Happy Thursday!

Peg said...

Oh my! Now, I'm Hungry!

Enjoyed your TT!

Amy Ruttan said...

I've lost 30lbs, so you're doing awesome. I've plateaued but I have lost 4 dress sizes so I'm happy.

Great TT, made me hungry!

Thanks for dropping by mine.

Renee said...

I read once that Broccoli actually cause you to burn more calories than it has in it...so shouldn't it have negative points?

Renee said...

I'm going to have to try making those oven potatoe chips. My Mom sent me a Mandolin slicer for my birthday.

Missy said...

Potatoes and brownies - I could do this diet. ;) Keep up the good work. Gut gemacht.

Desert Songbird said...

Good luck with Weight Watchers -- it's a good program.

I'll be pulling for you!

Thanks for visiting my TT list.

Missy said...

Here's another minute of exercise for you:

Ich lese Der Erlkönig. Es war so traurig. Ich habe geweint.

Christie said...

great list! i hope you meet all your goals, i am struggling with my motivation! i will definitely take your potato and yogurt idea, that sounds yummy!

Jill said...

you forgot to put the point for the brownies!!
Good luck with your new lifestyle!!
Thank for passing by my site!!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

You're eating more than potatoes, right? *grin*

Happy TT and now, go exercise! (think of all the help mags gave you today)

Thanks for stopping by West of Mars -- hope you'll come by more often!

Thomma Lyn said...

Ah, noodles! I could eat buckets of 'em. And chicken, ham, broccoli, and tea... oh dear, I'm making myself hungry now... :)

Happy TT, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Kari said...

Way to go! You are to be commended for actually doing something about what you "don't like". Kudos!! Happy TT!

JAM said...

Best of luck with working the program. Hope Hubby is a big help to you too. It's hard to lose weight with those around you eating the stuff you're trying to stop eating. That's good info on WW. I've seen their commercials but didn't know how the program worked.

Miranda said...

Cool idea for a list....good luck. I'm sure you'll be there before you know it.

Leah said...

Well goodluck, I was on WW too last summer and I lost 15 lbs.
Exercise definitely helps.
thanks for dropping by my T13.

Leah said...

all the best in your exercise...

tiggerprr said...

Wow, that doesn't sound like a hard to live with plan. I hope it works for you! :)

she said...

Potatoes and Broccoli - you're making me hungry. I guess I should have visited your T13 after dinner ;)

Wylie Kinson said...

I enjoyed your list! I too am on a plan to lose 50ish (or more!!) pounds so good luck to you. I'm only down 2.5 -- but at least the scale is going in the right direction.
I'm rooting for you!!

Renee said...

I tried to make the potato crisps but I put the oven too high and they didn't turn out right. I'll try again at a lower temp

Laurence said...

Great list... Keep up the work !!!

Happy T13

P.S. I love Pink Blog !!! :-D

Proverbs31 said...

Yay for WW! Just got back on it myself. I have just over 40 lbs to lose. (Darn that post-baby weight!) ;)

Keep up the good work!

Teena said...
