My plan for the afternoon was successful. It turns out I didn't need to be so worried about the pudding because it's hard to raid the cabinets when you have to be consistently stirring for 10 minutes.

Tonight I had a 4 POINT taco soup and homemade guacamole. I believe both recipes are on although I did add minced sweet red peppers and garlic to the guac as well as about 2 tablespoons of diced pear tomatoes. I didn't have any cilantro on hand, but it still had a wonderful flavor. I also found tortilla chips that were 2 POINTS per serving (Price Chopper Naturals). Somehow I was able to have just one serving because the meal was very filling. I also had refried beans (only 1 POINT for 1/2 cup).

Even still, I am having a fat day. Some days my POINTS allowance just seems too high and by the end of the day I am just a little more full than I want to be and I get that "gross" feeling that I am trying to avoid.

I can't wait to fit into those old jeans...

Taco Soup sounds delicious! I will have to look it up - Also, do you make ff pudding and split up the servings? that is a great idea.

It's so nice to read about someone else on this journey. :)

Yeah, I bought an 8 pack of the 1.2 c. serving size containers. I think they run @ about $3. That way I don't eat a huge bowl and it's also easy to throw in a lunch box to take to work.

I agree. It has been very nice to see the other blogs and read about people who are going through some of the very same things.
