I think I goofed today!!

This morning I bought a tray for breakfast from our cafeteria at school. It included a cup of 2%
milk, ( 3 pts.) 1 small biscuit (4 pts) and one cup of scrambled eggs. I innocently assumed one
cup of scrambled eggs would be low in points since the cafeteria doesn't add any fat, just a
little bit of milk. Well, I can't find anywhere an equation for how many eggs equals one cup,
but if my calculations are correct, I blew SEVEN points on a cup of EGGS??? With no added fat???
What a jolt!!!

I am not sure of the count but I do understand your upset, like my 18 point
late' man was I glad it was the end of the week and I had flex points,

I did the exact same thing when I first joined. I was on vacation, and didn't have access to the
online info. I decided to have a "healthy" breakfast each day, and had 2 eggs, toast and a large
orange juice! I was stunned when I got back home and checked out what I ate.

Well, either I had been eating so badly before, or maybe it was all the walking we did, I still
managed to lose weight that first week.

I know more now, and I try to make good choices. But, goofs still happen, and I just go on
from there.

Hang in there, WannaBe! You can do this one step at a time.

Oops! My points tracker says 10.5 for 1 cup of scrambled eggs.

A US large egg is about 1/4 cup, and 2 points, so that sounds about right.

Lessons learned...

Just do not get down... We all will make some type of mistake like that sooner or later.... Thanks
for the flex points...

Uh Oh! Eggs can be one of those things that you really have to watch, especially scrambled eggs as
they are mostly measured by the scoop/cup. WW Online lists 1 cup of scrambled eggs at 10.5 points!

Thankfully, I didn't go over my limit, even with the eggs!! Thanks to all of
you for your wonderful support. I don't weigh till Monday so the weekend is
going to be a challenge as we tend to eat out on weekends. I'm going to
stick to baked chicken breasts and salads and I have a Smart Ones treat
waiting on me in the freezer for Monday night as a reward for being good!
LOL

Yikes! That's why I now ask for egg beaters whenever I eat eggs out. Too many points.

Lesson learned - do NOT "assume" the points value of anything!!
