Fiber One Keeps Giving Us More Reasons To Love Them!

fiberonemuffins1I was in Sam’s Club yesterday, picking up my Weight Watcher’s diet staples (and of course the staples my family enjoys as well), when in the frozen breakfast food aisle, where we were buying Jimmy Dean’s Turkey Sausage/Egg White Sandwiches (4 points), I spied something new.

Fiber One now offers Blueberry Muffins…. with 7 grams of fiber. Hallelujah, praise be to…. !!!! I miss muffins. I love muffins, and until now, I’ve avoided them because I know they are cake disguised as breakfast food.

Ok, so here’s the deal: Fiber One Blueberry muffins are medium sized– not like the ones you’d get at Dunkin’ Donuts, but substantially larger than the three teeny ones combined you get in the hostess 100-cal snack packs. They are 170 calories, 4 grams of fat and 7 grams of fiber, 28% of your daily recommended amount. 3 points! 3 little points my WW friends!

And they are yummy. Loaded with blueberries, moist like a muffin should be and with a crunchy oat
granola on top. They come frozen, so you can thaw them or you can heat them up in the microwave or the toaster oven, which I chose for my muffin this morning. Not only did it taste amazing, it smelled really wonderful too. I paired my muffin with WW Vanilla Yogurt for a 4-point breakfast, and I was surprisingly full. I actually spoon a little yogurt onto my muffin as I’m eating it. It’s a guilt-free decadently tasty treat. I love Fiber One!

So Sam’s Club is the first place I’ve seen these. They come 12 to a box for under $7, and they are in the frozen breakfast food aisle. I haven’t seen them in my local supermarket as of yet, but I wasn’t looking for them. They may be there too. Totally worth searching out in my opinion. On the Fiber One website, you can check them out. They come in Blueberry & Oats (the one I tried), Apple Cinnamon Bun, Mixed Fruit, Nuts & Honey, and Banana Chocolate Chip. What more can we ask for????

On another note,I lost .8 this week. I worked really hard and I would have liked that number to be a little higher but I wasn’t disappointed because I lost 2.4 the week before. I know next week will be better.

Down 36.2 total, and I’m up to 2.5 minute intervals on my Couch25K running training. It’s all good!

In the Groove…

For Kate and me, Weight Watchers is working! We aren’t losing crazy amounts of weight but we are losing and it’s starting to show.

Kate has lost 10.6 pounds with a pound lost last week and I’m down 14.6 pounds, having dropped .8 of a pound last week. It’s exciting.

The benefits? Our clothes are either fitting better or getting looser. Kate said she loves that she no longer has “muffin top” over her jeans, and I bought a pair of jeans a size smaller.

At my Ladies Who Launch group meeting last week, the other ladies (who hadn’t seen me in about a month) noticed the difference. It’s nice when other people see the difference.

We’re walking 2 miles a day. I’ve had an incredibly stressful week at work and this has been better for me than any drug could be because I’m relieving the stress and doing something good for me too.

I don’t need Zantac for acid reflux anymore. And we’re getting full on a lot less.

TIP:

At my meeting last week, our leader turned us on to Fiber One cereal. 1/2 cup has 14 grams of fiber and 0 points. I’m sure all you long-term weight watchers out there know about this.

It resembles hamster food but actually it’s got a light sweet taste to it and it’s crunchy. I add it to my Dannon Light & Fit Vanilla yogurt (8 ounces – 1 point) and a cup of strawberries (1 point) for a really filling 2-point snack. Yum.
