are there any other weight watchers out there?

I am on weight watchers and I like having a spot like this on a christmas forum. As we all know if we dont watch our points or core foods this time of year we will have problems with weight loss. Are there any other weight watchers out there I can commiserate with?

Mr. Christmas is a new face around here!
Not me, Santa isn't one either, but I guess you already knew that from pictures of him. I won't tell him what I'm saying (I work with him). But, I'm sure you'll find someone out there that's a weight watcher,

Well, I count points now and then. Actually, it is something my wife is more into than me. I've never tried it at Christmas time. I wonder what some naturally occuring low-point Christmas foods might be? Certainly not fudge.

I did try a sugar-free candy cane the other day that wasn't bad...

well FYI fruit cake is 4 points for a 2 oz slice--better stay away from that or I would be wearing it for sure. Some low points food naturally would be on the vegetable and fruit plate. Weight watcher meetings and cook books have great recipe alternatives and you dont even know you are eatting "diet"

You're right, the quality of foods on Weight Watchers is always excellent. My problem is the QUANTITY. A big guy like me can't eat like a bird. When my wife limits me to 30 points in a day I starve.

Hey, congrats, gracie! That's super.

I'm up and down in my weight too. Elves bear a great responsibility when it comes to eating cookies of every kind, you know.

Jeff works for See's Candies. (That's how he pays for MMC, I hear). Anyway, he is a dangerous guy to know if you're counting points.

weight watchers has 2 plans the points plan and the core plan. The core plan is eat all you need to be satisfied ( not all you want!!) of certian core foods--but I dont think candy, cookies and cocoa are core foods. Too bad I wish they were. As of last Thurs I am down 10 1/4 pounds in 3 weeks . I cant wait til this Thurs I will be even better!!!

good luck, Ernest, on your own weight loss adventure!!!I am sure we will have our ups and downs( literally)
