I like all the ww meals at Applebees. They are easy because the point value is right in the menu. When I go out, I always look up the restaurant online, decide what I am going to get and don't even look at the menu once I get to the restaurant.

New low reached 149.2 lbs on 5/6/11. Made my weight watcher goal on Tuesday, May 3, 2011.
New walk record 9/9/11, 4 miles in 58 minutes.

To Sunrise, just split the difference and go for 4.5 points. All of this is a guide so we do our best. A 3 oz portion of meat is supposed to look like a deck of cards and I'm new here To WW as well. I usually skip the potato and get double veggies.

Pursue the things that make you feel alive and fill you with joy and balance.!

Hi Everybody -

I am fairly new to WW SP. I have a question that I would love some feed back on. This evening my husband and I went to a new place for dinner. I ordered a 6oz filet mignon, a plain baked potato and a steamed vegetable medley. When the meal came I weighted the filet on my WW scale, it said that the filet weighted 3.7 oz and equaled 9 points. Insert problem.....My WW pocket guide said that the filet at 4oz is 6 points....SP says it is 193 cal and 12 fat grams which is 5 points......it was a really lean piece of meat. I am not sure how I should be counting it.....any ideas!!! I thought that I would definitely be pushing my goals on SP because of the filet.....instead I am WAY under...help emoticon

Sushi is easy to figure out, approximately half a point a piece for things without cream cheese or fried bits. :-) Chinese is easy too: egg drop soup (1) and Chinese Vegetables with Shrimp (4). Actually, there are a LOT of choices for eating out...something I have done at least two times a week for the last two years. LOL

Reached my goal November 2009!

look for the key words, broiled, grilled, baked and stay away from creamed sauces, buttered anything. At Applebys they have an assortment of 550 calorie meals and they are great. I order shrimp Dabalo which is spicy shrimp with noodles. I would stay away from desserts unless you have room for the points. Eat before you go and you won't be hungry. Have a bowl of progresso 0 calorie/point soup.

As far as Applebees I like the Island Shrimp, but for special celebrations I tend to go to restaurants that are not part of a chain. You can stick to a simple sirloin or a grilled chicken breast with baked potato and salad. Just watch what you put on the potato and salad. That's where most of the calories come from.

I agree. Lots of restaurants have their NI online. I don't go anywhere these days without looking it up first and already knowing what I am going to have.

At Applebee's I really liked the tilapia with salsa they had.

Hope you have a fun birthday!

a lot of the restaurants have their nutriental info on line and I always get on and pick what I want to have before I get there. It really does help to plan and know what the pts are ahead of time.
You can always box up half first thing so that you aren't tempted to eat it all. Have a great birthday!

I need help i am doing my best to lose weight and this month i got a birthday and want to go out to eat and not feel like a heal because i blew it. I know applebees has ww meals and desserts but i don't know whats a good choice there. Does anybody have suggestions for restraunts that would help? I'm not good with smorgasboards at all!

The Lord is my strength and i know i can do better with the Lords help. The Lord laid it on my heart to start a team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANYBODY THAT WANTS HELP TO LOSE THEIR WEIGHT TO JOIN . I KNOW I CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT THE LORDS HELP !
