My Progress

Thursday, March 26, 2009


I have started eating breakfast daily. I usually wait until I've been up for about an hour, sometimes, usually about 8 AM. I try to vary what I eat each day to make sure it does not become boring. This morning I had my favorite breakfast: Egg white omelet (3 egg whites=1 pt), Thomas' Light whole grain english muffin (1 pt); 1 tbs of Smuckers Red Raspberry Jam (1 pt), 4 oz. low-fat milk (1 pt); 1 cup of honeydew mellon (1 pt). That comes to a total of 5 points...leaving me 21 for the day. I sometimes save my fruit for later in the morning.

Also, I've learned to look for foods that have a high fiber content...they prove to be lower in point value. Anyone following this program knows to use those points as 'frugally' as possible.

  1. Good for you! Breakfast is the most important part of the day!

    Just a tip, I wouldn't wait much longer than an hour after waking up before you eat. Your body is just coming off of a fast (from over night) and to jumpstart it, you want to eat. You should drink at least 2 glasses of water as well within a few mins. of waking up. There is a good article I read online about all of this. I will search and see if I can find it!
