Mimi...I've heard yes from 2 sources (1 WW leader and my nutrionist) and one I'm not sure from another WW leader. So...for me, I count it as a dairy!

Hi everyone

I got my computer fixed this evening. Hopefully it will last for some time.

Did you ever find out if Almond milk is a serving of milk? It only has 40 calories per cup. I'll ask my leader too.

Nancy
I totally understand you. I also would love to have many more points each day, but the reality is different. I also am getting used to the idea that maintenance does not mean getting many more extra points. The most I get is 2-4 points daily (or 0 points some days). Luckily my body got used to accept ALL 35 weekly points every week in maintenance.
Eating two extra small apples a day or a large banana (for example) doesn't get me too excited yet.....smile.....
BUT! that is a small price to pay to feel great and healthy being at maintenance.

I love vanilla soy slender milk (70 calories per cup) and now I enjoy almond milk, only 120 calories per 3 cups.



I'll celebrate 10 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2014!

This is probably the one thing I have the most difficulty with. I developed a bad habit of not drinking milk so my kids would have it. I have a yogurt every morning. I think what I will do is develop a habit of having a large glass of milk every night. Kill 2 birds with one stone..get the calcium I need and pray it helps me sleep!!

I have a large glass (2 servings) with dinner. It's the third I seem to have a problem with.

Since I'm over 50, I need 3 dairies according to WW - 4 according to the article. The problem is that I don't get a lot of points, even on maintenance because I'm small and over 50. I HAVE to earn Activity points just to make it through and I have to tell you, it's hard sometimes to use those points for healthy foods, a lot of days I don't have any left over for a treat!

I'm getting used to it though. Some days are easier than others, I will say that a glass of FF milk (2 points) takes me a lot further than a 100 calorie pack.

On both the old WW Plan and the exchange system you had to have two glasses of milk a day, or it's equivalent as listed on the exchange list. If you were getting ready for bed at night and realized you had only had one glass of milk, you had to go down to the kitchen and drink the second glass of milk. It wasn't optional.

On maintenance I find that I might overeat something, and compensate by eliminating milk, which is bad for someone my age with bone loss issues. Since we are in Lent, I am back on my tracking exchanges, weighing and measuring, just like I did when I was losing. And I am getting my 2 cups of milk per day, occasionally more if I want to bump it up as a bonus selection, but never less. This is why I would have been bad at points: my chooser isn't too good if I have too many choices, whether it's food or clothes, or things to do.

Great article.

I'm a disaster when it comes to milk. I only have it with coffee or tea, I rarely eat cereal. I like yogurts and cheese, so I eat them daily but I don't get enough calcium. I'm going to have to step up my dairy intake and/or take a calcium supplement.

I always have a glass of milk and 3 FF oroe cookies. It is the 1 thing I refuse to give up because I couldn't sleep when I did. I know it was the milk but I have an anxiety about the oreos!!

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance. Remember Dance like no one is watching!!

I should start saving points for cereal and milk at night. I usually only have 1 or 2 points left for my snack, so not enough for cereal and milk. The article suggested 4 servings for my age group - wonder if I'm not getting enough???

BTW, I showed the Dr. when I went for my annual physical my vitamins, Calcium supplement, etc (she asked me to bring everything in) and she asked it I was taking my Calcium 1 in the a.m. and 1 in the evening, I told her no. She said I was throwing one of them away. So, I'm trying to remember to split it up - the morning one is easy, but I keep forgetting the one at dinner. Maybe I'll make a note in my tracker....

I enjoyed this article and thought you would too!

I heard that having a bowl of cereal for a night time snack was a good thing so I try to have a bowl of cereal every night. It fills me up, satisfies my craving for whatever and helps with the sleeping as well!
