We Weigh In on Our Weight Watchers Team

The NewsChannel 11 Weight Watchers team is shrinking a little more every day. 22 of us have been following the Flex Point Plan with a Weight Watchers meeting here every Thursday. The first week, our team dropped 40 pounds collectively.

On Thursday was week two and the 13 people who weighed in lost another 17.5 pounds. That's a total of 57.5 pounds gone in two weeks. But this next week is going to be a real challenge with the temptation of two four letter words, fair food. Some advice on that from our Weight Watcher team leader.

Kim Martin, Weight Watchers team leader, says that she wants us to remember that the fair just comes along once a year, so go and enjoy the food because of flex points that will allow us to eat some fair food.

Here is the skinny on the fatty food at the fair:

  • candied or caramel apple = 9-10 points
  • corn (8") no butter = 2 points
  • corn with butter = 4 points
  • fudge (1" x 2" ) = 3 points
  • cotton candy (1.5 oz.) = 3 points
  • 1/2 funnel cake (8" diameter) = 12 points
  • hamburger on bun (plain) = 9 points, large = 13
  • hot chocolate with whipped topping = 7 points
  • lemonade (8 oz.) = 2 points
  • onion rings (4-4") = 6 points
  • one slice two crust fruit pie = 9 points
  • pretzel (4 x 4.5") = 3 points
  • taffy (one piece) = 1 point
  • chilli dog on bun = 10 points
  • chicken fajita (2) = 8 points
  • nachos (1 cup chips and 1/2 cup sauce) = 10 points
  • kettle corn (1 cup) = 3 points
  • baked potato with vegetables and cheese sauce = 10 points
  • sausage on a stick (2 oz.) = 6 points
  • root beer ( 12 oz.) = 3 points
  • beef taco = 5 points
  • grilled turkey leg = 1 point per oz.
  • foot long corn dog = at least 10 points
  • grilled chicken kabob = 1 point @ oz.
