I would love to do this one, but I am not officially following Weight Watchers. I have not joined in real life or on line ( last time I was a member was back in 1972 and it was a whole different program), but I will happily watch the progress of everyone and cheer you all on. We can do this !!

I am following Weight Watchers (points program) but I am not officially a Weight Watchers member at the moment. I am calculating and tracking points for both myself and my husband (boy, I wish he would do his own, but he wouldn't bother and wouldn't be on the program if I wasn't doing it for him! Then again, I prepare all the food, including his lunch...) I have no idea, however, what "filling foods" are. Do I qualify for the challenge, or not?

Both of you are very welcome to join. You don't have to be a member to join in this challenge, just be following the program. I just edited the entry, I forgot to make that clear. Let me know if you're interested.
