Here it is! My menu plan for week #2 of Weight Watchers online! As I mentioned, I started the program last week, but did NOT post a week #1 menu plan…too much going on! 😉 But, as promised here is my menu plan for week #2.  If my calculations are correct, there are about 27 of us who are signed up and several other “unofficial” members of this group who would like some motivation. While you may not want to follow this menu plan exactly, it will at least give you an idea of what you can eat…and maybe get you out of the rut of eating the same things over and over again. Another thing I wanted to mention about these recipes is that some of them are higher points than what the actual ingredients add up to. This is because the new PointsPlus recipe builder totals all of the food values, even though a food may be “free” according to the rules. Because of this, I always suggest measuring and entering your ingredients separately into your daily tracker so you have a correct points value. I know it’s confusing and time consuming, but I feel like I get a more accurate points value this way. The recipes I have personally created have the correct value, but the other ones may be a bit higher than expected.

What gets me through the week:

Roasted Mushrooms: Pound of sliced mushrooms, salt & pepper, spray with cooking spray. Roast at 450 for 20 minutes. 0 points and oh so delicious!

Fresh Vegetable Soup – 0  points per serving. These ingredients are all zero points, so I don’t count the one point that the WW recipe builder counts. I make a big batch of this on Sunday so I can have it throughout the week.

Sugar Free Jello Snack with 1/8 C of Fat Free Whipped Topping – 0 points per serving!

MorningStar Spicy Black Bean Burgers on an Arnold Sandwich Thin – my lunch every other day!

Weight Watchers or Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges – 1 point each. I use these to spread on my sandwich bread at lunch time to replace mayo. So creamy and yummy!

Giada’s Rise and Shine Juice – I make this every couple days and it’s delicious!!

Weekly Weigh-in:

I lost 2 pounds this week. I feel like I could have done better, but I got a cold and didn’t get any type of exercise program started. I’m still sick, but hoping to start earning some activity points at least by the end of next week.

So far 2 pounds without any workout due to I hurt my knee. I'm going to follow Angie (32oz water) this week and hopefully get my numbers up. I printed the dannon coupon from target and the web site all (I forgot the web page). I also printed the weight watchers coupons from target and coupons.com. And combined them with the ad from heb that had all meals. 99 and got 20 meals from target. Plus their ww desserts were on sale for 1.29. That plus my farmer's market help me for my first week. Also target and smart source have coupons for. 75 off of yoplait light with granola 2-ct making it only. 69¢. I tell myself that's my dessert and its pretty go if I say so.

I lost 4.6 this week. Very excited! I have to contribute a lot of that to being a really good water drinker this week. I have a 32 oz. cup that I use every day. It is a complete mental game, but for some reason it is easier to tell myself to drink 2 of those instead of eight 8-oz glasses. Good luck everyone!

I lost 2.2 lbs after my first weigh in. It felt great because I lost that without doing the plan for a full week before my weigh in (Wanted to weigh in on the same day I plan to each week). I do need to exercise more and take the time to do it. Fruit has been getting me through the week. Knowing I can eat as much fruit as I want helps when I'm feeling hungry. Though keeping fruit in my house has been a struggle since me and my youngest have been eating it constantly. My biggest tip is to check out the recipes on Skinny Taste. I've made several of her recipes and they've all been loved by my family.
