What I'm eating

I have had a couple people ask what I eat as I am losing the weight.  So I put together a photo food journal of a typical day for my readers.  I have 50 points to eat on the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and here is a sample of what I eat.

Breakfast 8:15 a.m. - 3 boiled egss and a banana

6 WW points
Morning Snack 10:30 a.m. - Luna Bar

5 WW points
Lunch 12:30 p.m. - Beef stew

11 WW points
Afternoon Snack #1 2:45 p.m. - Fat free strawberry Greek yogurt with 1 tbsp of mini chocolate chips added
4 WW points
Afternoon Snack #2 4:15 p.m. - 1/4 cup banana chips
 8 WW points
Dinner 7:00 p.m. - Crock pot Potato Soup and a garden salad

 10 WW points
There you have it what I eat.  Like I mentioned before I have 50 points and this totaled to 44 points.  I try to get as close to my limit as possible without going over.  I probably could have added an apple and peanut butter as an evening snack and came closer but I just wasn't hungry.  I don't deprive myself of eating I just make better choices and use portion control.
Don't forget about my holiday photo challenge.  Read about it HERE.
Until next time,


  1. In the 4th grade up I would eat 4 boiled eggs every morning. Kids always laughed at me when I would be in the cafeteria eating my breakfast but I didn't care cause I love boiled eggs that much. I also really love Greek yogurt. I have yet to try the Luna bars but I hear they are good.

    1. The luna bars are AMAZING! They don't taste like a health food bar which is the best part and they make a great snack. Thanks for reading!

  2. You're correct, it's not about depriving yourself, but making better choices...don't know why people don't get that! Kudos to you on your weight loss! I'm dropping by from the "Southern Girl BLOG Group". Have a wonderful day!

    1. MIchell, you are absolutely correct. I just want to shake people when I here them say they only allow myself to have 1000 calories a day and still expect to lose weight. Umm no all you can expect is to be hungry and cranky! Thanks for the kind words and for reading!

  3. I love luna bars! I got some last month for review, and nearly ate them all that day. Lov bannanas as well, and you remind me that I really need to eat breakfast more.

    1. Thanks for reading, breakfast is so important for me during my weight loss. Usually I am starving when I wake up in the morning!
