I have them in the oven! Thanks! I only had a big can of pumpkin, so of course.. I had to make a crustless pumpkin pie! Great job with your dedication to WW.. once you get it in your head that it is a LIFESTYLE and not a DIET... it seems to go better. I joined at 263.2 pounds. I originally got down to 158 as lifetime and then proceeded to get to 149. A move and another child later, I am around 164.. the ranges have changed, so I plugged the new top number so I don't have to pay anymore and then I just keep plugging away to get under the number. I will definitely post more recipes. If you are craving anything and want to know how to make it WW friendly, that is my mission!.. let me know and I will give you my personal suggestions! Remember it is a lifestyle so you need to enjoy it! God Bless.
Crustless Pumpkin Pie
1 can pumpkin (15 oz)
1 can evaporated skim milk (12 oz)
3/4 cup egg substitute (or 3 egg whites)
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 C. Splenda (or sugar) or to taste
Combine all ingredients and beat until smooth.
Pour into a 9" sprayed pie pan
Bake at 400 for 15 minutes, and then at 325 for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Whole Pie: 8 points (or ONE pt. for 1/8 pie)
Top this pie with a little fat free Cool-Whip for even more of a treat! Counts as a vegetable serving and high in fiber!

Put the strawberries in your pie pan. In a small saucepan, mix the pudding and the water. Bring to a boil. Take off heat stir in box of jell-o. Let it cool for about 20 minutes add to strawberries, cover and chill. The entire pie is 5 or 6 points depending on how you calculate points. Enjoy! Can you tell what I made this morning?

Congratulations on your weight loss and keeping it off for 3 years! I have found that if I don't attend the meetings, then for some reason.. I can't keep it off on my own. When I got to goal the first time I started training to be a leader and worked for WW as a leader for a year before I relocated. I am thinking about getting back into it here, but I have a 17 month old and a 5 year old.. and it is a little harder to commit myself to that at this time. ... If you want someone to be accountable to .. via email, you can send me your journals, your weekly weigh ins .. if that will help you get back on track to at least think about it it get your 22 pounds back off! Just a thought. I am not sure which recipe you wanted to know the points about, but I would say the cupcakes minus the chocolate chips would be 1 point each. With the chocolate chips, they are 2 points each per batch of 24. The pie is 1 point per 1/8th. Hope that helps!

God I miss Weight Watchers! I used to be a member. I lost 42lbs. I kept it off for 3yrs. I'm in nursing school now and have gained back 22lbs (boohoo). Anyway thanks for the recipe it sounds really good. Do you know how many points it is?

When I do make them, I can't seem to keep them very long unless I freeze them. I put 2 muffins in a zippy bag and put them in the freezer that way. My kids (17, 12, & 5) will eat until they are gone otherwise. Just a word of warning!
