I can buy plain nonfat yogurt and add fruit to it for the same point value as the WW yogurt and it's better for me, too.

2) They are expensive!!!

3) A lot of them contain artificial sugars, which I do not use.

4) A lot of them are for what I consider to be "treats", and I'm sorry but a diet treat just is not going to cut it for me. When I want a brownie, I want an ooey gooey chocolatey brownie... and I'll budget my points and portion accordingly.

MTA: RubyWild, is there a trick you use to quote all of us in one post?? That's really neat!
: I really don't like the WW food. It's mostly junk food modified with artificial sweeteners.

Oh, and I believe I've been multi-quoting for months now, thank you very much!

Okay, waaaaahh fest over. I'm fitting better in my clothes. I'm feeling good. So, it's good. It'll happen.
It's still a loss! You'll have weeks where you lose 1 - 3 pounds, and ones like this where you lose under a pound, or stay the same. Keep with it and you will see loss soon enough! I also agree with a pp, you probably gained muscle with all of those activity points (I'd say your leg muscles gained a lot with those 17k steps climbing the mountain!). If you're working out you're not going to see a huge loss each week, b/c you're building up muscle. You're doing great!!!

Yeah, that's what they always say, but how many months can you really add muscle weight? I'd say I'm past adding muscle weight, at least from hiking.

Between my three meals, I have a serving of fruit. Otherwise, I don't snack. I just eat really filling meals.

I don't. My store doesn't sell it. I have a feeling most of it isn't all that healthy, but would be interested to hear of kinds that are free of corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, etc.
I wish we had a good all natural food store here. I here rumor we're getting a Whole Foods! That would be fantastic!! I know that I've seen the Ezekiel breads at Kroger, but since we've moved they don't have one of those here either I'll hunt 'em down.

Im such a snacker. Im finding thats my toughest area. But I did really good yesterday and even had 1 Point left over!!! And I felt FULL! YIPEE!

The WW snacks are loaded w/ corn syrup, Im sure! Yes, they don't seem too healthy do they....We don't eat artificial sweetners here either, so Im having to just count all the real sugar we use, which I've really tried to cut out. My dh can't have HFCS because of his stomach, so that makes it easier to keep that out of the house.

Right now, I don't really care about HFCS. It's hard enough to diet and avoid artificial sweeteners yk? Besides, I eat fast food on WW. Can't be as bad as taco bell.
