Try some walnuts, almonds or cashews for a snack. They are really satisfying and filling. When ever I eat them I find that for some reason I never gain weight from them. It seems unreal. But I eat every week about 1/2 cup worth of nuts started eating them from the begining of my diet in may and still lost a lot of weight. While I will gain weight or not lose anyweight when I binge on sugar stuff. Like candy bars, ice cream and cake.

Are you eating all of you points? Exercising? As you lose weight are you dropping a point for every 10 lbs you lose?

Remember, if you eat too much or not enough you can gain or plateau.
If you're exercising you might have built muscle.

We had a leader who said she stirs a teaspoon of grape seed oil into her oatmeal (or anything, she said it has no flavor).

I take 2 fish oil & 2 flax oil capsules a day, that's about 1 teaspoon. Then I include some reduced fat cheese in my lunch and some nuts for a snack and figure that probably covers the other teaspoon.

I also use flax oil in my Italian dressing, but I don't eat that everyday. That's probably about a teaspoon of oil in a tablespoon of dressing.

I've always taken flax oil for my skin (it's very, very dry), so I don't know what difference it would make to weight loss!

Within the ww plan you should be eating/using 2tsp of oil EVERYDAY.

From the 8 Healthy guidelines:

Have some healthy oil (olive, canola, safflower, sunflower, or flaxseed) each day. This habit ensures that you get the essential fatty acids and vit. E that your body needs. Use the oil on salads, in cooking, or as an ingredient in a mixed dish.

Grapeseed oil is certainly healthy, but it doesn't count as a serving nor unfortunately do nuts.

Because on weight watchers most people DO eat so clean and healthy, they aren't getting enough fats in their diet. Try out a website such as fitday.com or sparkpeople.com to track your meals for a day or two to see what you're missing.
