Weight Watcher Tuesday

Hello everyone. I joined Weight Watchers a week ago. I know many have different opinions on weight loss plans and etc. But it is working for me at the moment. I am trying to finish off my last 25 pounds I would like to lose. I have lost 3 pounds so far. I have really loved experimenting with recipes. I joined when it was just a Dollar and I do online for $3.74 a week. Right now it is affordable for me.

Here are a couple of recipes I have made. Last Night I made......

Chicken Parmesan Stuffed Pasta Shells (recipe from Emily Bites) 8 Smart Points for 3 Jumbo
Shells


Mine is on the left side with FF Cheese. I also made extra for me for the rest of the week for lunch.

I paired it with a salad and a Yummy WW's Dessert.

Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits (recipe from Emily Bites) 4 Smart Points



Today I was CRAVING French Toast. So, I created this on my own.



I used Bagel Thins (3 SP), 1/3 cup of egg whites (0 SP), cinnamon (0 SP), 2 TBLS of Fat Free Milk (0 SP) and I topped with Blueberries and Strawberries (0SP), and drizzle of SF Syrup for (1 SP). It was a totally yummy breakfast for 4 Smart Points "SP".

My portions sizes have had to cut back unless I make healthier options. My fruit and veggie intake have doubled!!! I am learning to Say NO to overeating. I am feeling a little better.

This works for me for now because I can cook for my family and I can still enjoy it. I do not like having to cook separate meals for me and my family. I just don't have the money or time.

I will be making Tuesday (when I can) a day I will share my recipes, goals, and tips for weight loss in general. Not always Weight Watcher related.

This may not be interesting to any of you but it is more of a journal for me and will help me I hope.

If you ever had success with WW's or any other plan let me know! Chime in on tips, recipes, and advice!

Blessings,
Chrissy

  1. WW works for me! I lost 30 lbs on it a loooong time ago. About 18 years ago. I've been looking at it (and some other things) again as I have a recent diagnois for a digestive disease. Food seems to be a huge factor in gut issues. I'm looking forward to following your journey.

    1. That is awesome. Glad to hear it worked. It is much different now because it does focus on more healthier options with some wiggle room for old favorites.

  2. I don't diet Chrissy but lost weight when I reduced my sugar intake dramatically to reduce my cholesterol. The hardest part was giving up sugar in my coffee but I am quite used to it now.
