Menu: back to Weight Watchers edition

I officially joined Weight Watchers Online yesterday.  I've done WW at home before,  using the materials I bought off eBay, but now, with the new PointsPlus system, everything is different.  I never thought I'd pay for something like this, but I got a good deal (no joiners fee with 3-month membership), and so far, I'm pretty impressed with their online tools.    And no, nobody is paying me to tell you this- it's just my personal opinion!

I'm still learning the new PointsPlus system, so some of these meals are a little high in points.  I hope to find other ways to prepare the dishes and lower the points as I go. There will definitely be some tweaking!  ;)
If you have any pointers or know of any great WW blogs, I'd love to hear from you!  :)

  1. The new plan is amazing! I've been on it since it came out in December. I look forward to seeing how it goes for you.

  2. Great menu plan! I, too, just joined WW, but I am going to meetings. My hubby joined online and I must say their tools on the computer are impressive. So much more info than in the books I got at the meeting.

    The food points for plus points ARE pretty high, but you get more points, too.


    I look forward to following your blog,

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Those chicken fingers sound YUMMY and my kids would love them! I'll have to try them out!

  4. good menu. I am doing WW and trying to figure out the new points as well. I have to be more aware of the points. Good luck

  5. I didn't realize you fully stopped doing WW! Welcome back. :) I've heard nothing but good things about the new plan. I'll be joining you in just over a month.

    When I am strict w/ WW, we often make Oatmeal Pancakes. My kids actually love them!
    Don't know how to short link, but here is the post w/ recipe: (no clue the new Points value because I don't have that material yet):


    Good Luck!

  6. We're focusing on lowfat meals. We're keeping online food diaries and info on myfitnesspal. It's a great site. I think it can convert dishes into WW points, too. Good luck in your endeavor!

  7. Hi Amy!

    Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by my blog & for leaving such a great comment!

    Your menu sounds sooooo good! MMMMM....meatloaf & potatoes & chicken fingers & grilled cheese & pork roast & veggies... I'm coming to YOUR house for dinner!


  8. YAY another WW menu!! They are too far and few between. I joined mid Oct and lost 12 lbs because I keep going up a few and back down. Thanks for your ideas! Gotta get my act together!!
