Weekly Weigh In

Well, here it is Saturday morning, so I just got on the scales and ……  I lost exactly 1 pound.  You would think I would be happy right!  I wished it had been a little more though!!!!!!!!  But as I said last week I will reach my goal by the end of the year with a pound a week, so I should be pleased right!!!!

Week One – Lost 1 pound – 24 more to go!

The week was really busy for me, I have been bringing work home with me.  We are working on our e-commerce website.  We have a retail store selling printer cartridges and an e-commerce site.  At home I have been adding product and linking to printer models.  Very exciting stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I kept track of my eats (!) together with pictures.

So here goes the start of another week with 49 Weekly Points Plus.  I need to get some shopping done this morning before heading off to Calgary.  Bruce and I are going to see Les Miserables.


Breakfast – Greek Yoghurt Parfait

Greek Yoghurt Parfrait

For my parfait I layered up Greek yoghurt, blueberries and Fibre one cereal – all 100% Simply Filling

Lunch – Ham “Thinwich”, Tomato, Watermelon/Kiwi Mix


I really like the “thins”, I filled mine with sliced ham, lettuce, tomatoes and a little mustard.  This together with my sides made for a 100% Simply Filling lunch.

Dinner – Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork, Tossed Salad, Low Calorie Dressing

While at work today I had some pork tenderloin cooking in the slow cooker to make Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork.    I cooked enough for a couple of evenings and some lunches too.  So the pork was Simply Filling + 1WPA and 2 Points Plus for the dressing.

Daily Total:  Simply Filling + 3 Weekly Points Allowance


Breakfast – Individual Blueberry Oatmeal Cup

Breakfast 16th

I really enjoy these for breakfast.  Today was a hot morning, so I decided to just eat it cold and I still enjoyed the flavor.  These cups are Simply Filling + 1WPA.

Lunch – Pineapple Pork Wrap, Watermelon, Grapes


For lunch today I had some of the pork from last night and put it in a wrap with some lettuce, chopped tomatoes and grated carrot.  Very yummy.  I only had about a half portion of the meat, so it was 100% Simply Filling for my wrap.  The wraps I use are the Flatout wraps which are low calorie and so are part of the Weightwatchers Simply Filling Technique.  I had my wrap with some watermelon and grapes.  I have lots of watermelon cubed in the fridge ready to take and go!!

Dinner – Salmon Burger, Tossed Salad, Low Calorie Dressing

It is 28 degrees today, so we ate outside.  My fave thing to do!  I had a burger (grilled salmon in a thin ).  Topped with a little red pepper jelly and served up with salad and sliced watermelon.  ( Simply Filling + 3 WPA ) .  Also a nice easy one as I have my Zumba class on a Thursday at 8:30pm.

Daily Total – Simply Filling + 4 Weekly Points Allowance



Breakfast – Individual Blueberry Oatmeal Cup

Breakfast 16th

Ate the last one this morning – maybe I will have to make some more this weekend!!  These cups are Simply Filling + 1WPA.

Lunch – Pineapple Pork Salad, Watermelon, Cherries


I told you there was plenty of the pork!!!  I had this salad with some of the those French’s Fried Onions, they are obviously not Simply Filling, so it was 1 WPA for those and my dressing was 2 WPA.  Finished off the last of the cherries that I bought this week.  I love cherries and these were really good.  Also took some more watermelon to work with me too!  I bought a watermelon last Saturday, so it has been my main fruit this week.  When there are only two at home a watermelon goes a long way!

Dinner – Pineapple Pork Salad, Watermelon

My husband had to pop out of town on a business trip today and I wasn’t sure what time to expect him back.  I got busy when I got home and then about 7, I decided I really should fix myself something to eat.  The salad I had at lunch time was delicious, so I just decided to repeat it – lettuce, shredded carrots, baby tomatoes, sliced grapes, sliced pork, French’s Onions and dressing, Simply Filling + 3 WPA for the extras.  Had some more watermelon too!!!!!!

Daily Total – Simply Filling + 7 Weekly Points Allowance


As you know these things can change but planned is:

Breakfast – Tomato Ricotta Pie and Blueberry Peach Oatmeal.

Lunch – These are generally leftover based from the night before.

Dinner – Slow Cooker Peach BBQ Chicken, Asian Turkey Burgers, Beef Fajitas, Fish Taco Bowls and Grilled Teriyaki Chicken
