Mid Week Diet Check In

Okay my dieting companions, it’s mid-week.  How are we doing?
My progress has been awesome.  I started the week starving most of the time but with the assistance of some experienced healthy living, dieters, I soon found out that I wasn’t eating enough protein or drinking enough water.  I have corrected that and am happy to report that I am really not that hungry anymore.
I’ve stayed right in at my 19 points (Weight Watchers) and have only tapped into the weekly points once so far this week (I have 35 extra to use through the week).  And, I know we are suppose to wait until a full week to weigh ourselves, but I couldn’t resist.  I lost 3 lbs so far.  Yay me!!
This is what I had yesterday. And the best part is that it cost me under $4.00 for everything.
Breakfast
Coffee w/ fat free creamer
Quaker low sugar oatmeal
Dannon Light n Fit Yogurt
Lunch
Lean Cuisine Steak & Cheese Panini Sandwich
Apple
Snack
1/4 Cantaloupe
Dinner
Chicken Breast Grilled
w/ Cranberry Salsa
Betty Crocker Mashed Potato (80 cal per serving)
Broccoli
Snack
2 cups Popcorn
Reader and fellow dieter, Stephanie, had sent me this recipe that I’m sure to try.  These Mini BLT’s look delicious. 

I am seriously considering putting up a Facebook page for this.  If I do it won’t be until the weekend.  In the meantime please check in and let us know how your week is going so far.  Have you stuck to it?  Are you hungry? What great inexpensive foods have your found? Are you exercising?  I’m not…on my to do list! If you just decided to diet or just eat more healthy, then come along. We love company.

    WTG!

    I'm on track! I've cut out snacking during the day except for an afternoon snack (popcorn, pretzels, etc).

    I'm focusing on portion control for dinners- instead of making something and just splitting it in two, I'm measuring and weighing my food! 🙂

    I think I found a WW meeting that I'd like to join- a mommy and me one- but it meets Mondays… so perhaps I'll sign up next week!

    I'm doing good, but I don't think I lost a pound yet! This morning I went mall walking for a half hour. I'm going to go everyday.

    I think I have a problem with portion control at dinner! I'm going to make an effort to cut it in half. Keep going ladies!

    I've been doing pretty well. I've gone over my points yesterday, but used only a few weekly points. I've started doing walk away the pounds, the one mile walk.
    Yesterday, I put a whole chicken in the crock pot. It was ready by the time I got home. I have lots left over. I'm going to try to find a chicken soft taco recipe on the WW boards to use some of the left overs.

    My youngest has been having a couple of bad nights, it's THAT time and I am really tired. Excuses said- I'm not really sure how I'm doing! 😉
