I normally try and stick to the Simply Filling style of eating on Weightwatchers.  Today was a day where I chose not to!!

On the Weightwatchers website it states –

 You can use the Simply Filling technique for a day, a couple of days, or all the time, depending on what works for you.  Eat portions that feel right for you. Not so much that you feel too full, and not too little that you still feel hungry.
You’ll still enjoy a weekly PointsPlus Allowance with the Simply Filling technique, and have room to treat yourself with food that is not on the Power Foods list. Just remember to track those items, and stay within your weekly allowance. You can also continue to earn, swap and track your activity PointsPlus values.


The reason I have decided to do a Points Plus day is because most of what I ate today fell outside of the Simply Filling style of eating …  It was not a good day


Simply Filling Points Plus
2 Silver Hills   Bread 0 2
1 Tbsp Peanut   Butter 2 2
Grapes 0 0
6 Pumpkin   Kisses 4 4
Pumpkin Cream   Cheese Bar 3 3
1 cup Rice 0 5
1/2 Cup Black   Beans 0 2
Lettuce 0 0
Pico de Gallo 0 0
2 Tbsp   Dressing 5 5
2 Tbsp Grated   Cheese 3 3
Pumpkin Cream   Cheese Bar 3 3
Movie Popcorn 6 6
26 WPA 26 + 9 WPA


I need to have lots of Zeros in the Simply Filling column.  I did a little chart like this so you could see what I mean.


If I chose today as a Simply Filling day I would have used up 26 of my 49 WPA (Weekly Points Allowance) leaving only 23 for the rest of the week.


By choosing today as a Points Plus day, I have used up my daily Points Plus Allowance and then 9 of my WPA, leaving 40 for the remainder of the week.


I did some baking today and made some Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars from the latest Taste of Home magazine.  We are going to my son’s for dinner tomorrow and I am taking dessert.  I LOVE all things pumpkin!!!
