Any long time weight watchers might feel me on this. Just go on ahead and give me an "amen." Oh wow, I heard it! Cool.
Let me start by saying this. I like the new program. I like the free fruit (I might turn into a banana), I like the free veggies, I like that it's made me become aware again, and I like that it kind of forces you to make better food choices.
What I don't like, however, is that I'm having to relearn everything. Yes, I should've done this in December but it was the holidays and we're not even going there. Where I used to do lunch and snacks out of habit without really thinking about it, I know find myself staring blankly at food kind of forgetting what to do with it.
Enter old favorites.
Like a spicy black bean burger with a slice of cheese and mustard on light wheat bread.
New points on this old favorite:
black bean burger (Morningstar Farms): 3
Wonderbread light wheat bread: 2 for 2 slices
reduced fat Sargento pepper jack cheese: 1
Learning it, remembering it, moving on, eating a banana.
One meal at a time, just like in the beginning.
