Goals this week for weight loss

  1. Fat free half n half only
  2. Measure portions (I have my scale and measuring cups on the counter ready for action)
  3. Take a walk during work day
  4. No elevators
  5. Track all food

Yesterday I experienced an “I think this is relatively healthy” moment while eating out at lunch and then upon checking the Panera website, I realized I had actually consumed almost all of my daily alotment of points in one sitting.

Panera classic cafe salad balsamic dressing= 4 points
Panera Tuna Salad= 20 points
Total points I can eat in one day= 29

I haven’t tracked for about two weeks because I’ve been focusing on being active. Clearly, I need to be active AND track food so that the scale goes down.

Positives to focus on: swimming feels great, I’m feeling stronger when I run, I can lose 14 pounds.

  1. I’m always bummed at the “nutrition” info at Panera and have an ongoing correspondence with them about ways to improve their fruit/yogurt parfait. They seemed surprised by my suggestion to use fat-free yogurt and granola made without 4 different kinds of sugars – just told me to order it without the granola. At least it’s easy to find the info so it’s possible to make better choices

  2. I had a similar experience with avocado. One avocado is twelve points! Also, almost nothing at Olive Garden is within points. Maybe the salad, but it’s still a LOT of points. I have to use my weekly points for the soup, salad, and breadstick combo every time. It’s been great, though- 23 pounds since July. I’m 3 lbs from my 10% goal.

  3. Oi…this is distressing…and the new PointsPlus throws a wrench into all those “high fiber” energy bars and cereals and muffins that previously rated as 1 point (because of the fiber) but are now about 4 or 5!!! Which is probably what they should be…It keeps us honest though…the good thing about PointsPlus: fruits are okay! Bananas, apples, yay…

  4. I’m so glad fruits are free now. I’ve been eating fruits like a crazy person, and still losing. And when my bananas went brown, I used a WW recipe for banana bread that turned out really well, and a 1″ thick piece is 2 points! ❤ getting skinny and healthy!
