WW Filling Foods (Momentum Plan)
Weight Watchers (WW) launched their Momentum plan this last week and I’m really excited about it. I’m using it as an opportunity to kick start me into the last third of my weight loss journey. How appropriate is the name of their new plan? I needed a little new momentum. Haha.
One aspect of this fabulous new plan is focusing on learning good eating habits and how to choose different, more filling foods rather than just eating less of what we already ate. Doing that (just eating less) usually leaves us hungry, bored, and we end up stalling out on our weight loss, or worse, getting bored and frustrated and giving up.
So, as I learn new things, I’m going to post them here.*
Usually about three hours after my routine breakfast of oatmeal and bananas, I’m hungry again. Then I want to raid the refrigerator and find something to fill me up, but I don’t want to use up a lot of points. I want something that will carry me over until lunch time. I also want something quick and easy.
Today I felt inspired. Instead of a quick 2 point Weight Watchers snack bar, which never fills me up, I chose cottage cheese and mandarin oranges for the same points value.
1/2 c fat free cottage cheese
1/4 c canned mandarin oranges in light syrup (lightly rinsed)
Voila! Now I’m good to go until lunch.

I just love their program and all it has taught me and the success I’ve had on it seems to motivate and inspire others, so I choose to share it here on my blog, along with my other life stories, family adventures, and my love of sewing.)
