Here's a good link from MSN I found awhile ago - offers some good portion controlled meals. I don't follow them exactly but when I'm staring at a fridge full (or not so full!) of food it helps me whip something up. I'm not that creative
We buy the variety pack Popsicles/Fudgcicles/Creamsicles for killing the after dinner sweet tooth for 60 calories or less! I try to snack on fruits and veggies but if I desperately need to feel like I'm being bad, an English muffin pizza usually does the trick (I used diced, canned tomatoes instead of sauce). Also, frozen fruit (1/4-1/2 c.) with 1/2 c. low-fat vanilla yogurt.

Awesome BH keep it up! I'm holding steady at about 195-198 on any given day but have lost 2" on the waist line! In fact I have no more holes left in the belt! I rememebr when I had that issue going the other way!
Soup is tricky because it's light and filling, but full of sodium. You can look for reduced sodium soups and increase the amount of water you drink. And I make a lot of soup - a bunch of frozen veggies, a couple of cans of beans, and some low-sodium chicken broth is soup for the week! I love soup and cereal for meals and snacks. The organics section at our grocery store has lots of great boxed organic soups - Pacific Naturals, I think is the brand, and I love them.
I definitely recommend the organics section and getting into the stuff there, trying new things. I love, love, love Silk Soy creamer in my coffee (nice alternative to the soy lattes that eat 120-200 calories per to-go serving). I think all of the Kashi cereals are incredible, especially Autumn Harvest. We use Muir Glen fire-roasted tomatoes instead of regular canned tomatoes a lot of times when we want a little more flavor, and I also love the Annie's mac n' cheese instead of Kraft.
We almost always have a bowl of tomato/cucumber/onion salad w/ low-fat italian dressing in the fridge - good for snacking. Sometimes I throw in a few croutons too. Another great veggie snack is asparagus sprinkled w/ bread crumbs and coated w/ just a bit of olive oil, baked at 400 for about 15 minutes. Nice as a side dish or to grab out of the fridge and re-heat or eat cold.
