Welcome to the more north country, eh, Andrea? I don't envy you that part of living in such an idyllic sounding village.:-) I loved Wyoming, but do not miss the snow and wind!

I finally felt well enough to get a few things done this morning when I got back from dropping Rog off at work. Put away a couple of toys, did a load of laundry which is drying now, folded another load and put it, and one already done, away. Moved a couple of chairs back to where they belonged since being used for Thanksgiving.

Changed the towels in the bathroom and freshened up in there, too.

Andrea, WW is saying this is the biggest change they've made in 13 years and that now it is "Power" foods, not Filling, as we have had for the past year, too. Here's a blurb about it:

Are Weight Watchers Power Foods the same as Filling Foods?
No, they are different. To put it simply, Filling Foods are(sic) were chosen based on their ability to fill you up, but Power Foods were chosen based on their impact on health as well as their ability to fill you up. If you make Power Foods the basis of your meals, you'll be eating nutrient-packed foods that keep you satisfied—and that's the best strategy for health and weight loss.

How did the two lists come about? For years, subscribers wanted an easy way to spot foods that kept them full the longest. So we created the Filling Foods list to meet this need. However, we soon began hearing from more subscribers who told us that they wanted a quick way to identify not only the foods that were the most filling, but also the healthiest choices — meaning the best foods you can eat, period. So, we started from scratch. We ranked foods within similar categories, such as milk, using a proprietary formula that rated their ability to be filling and their impact on health (via the food's content of sugar, sodium, saturated fat, total fat, and/or fiber).The highest ranked foods within each category became Weight Watchers Power Foods.
