It's working!

Weight Watchers Points Plus that is...I'm down 5 pounds!  YOO HOO...This really is a lifestyle change & not just some diet! I'm losing the pounds & going to keep them off!

I've made it like a game of sorts in counting my points.  Thank goodness I found this website called!  I have found some really good recipes on here.  Now my husband might now agree with me when I say that...Last night was HILARIOUS!  I made a potato soup recipe from there & he said it looked like porridge & was just wrong!  You pureed the cooked cauliflower & potatoes so yes, there were no big chunks of potato & he was so not happy about that!  I have several other recipes picked out to try this week!  I did make a recipe from the site that he did like this week though & it was PHENOMENAL I must say!  Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken is a MUST TRY!  So good!

Heaven in a bowl...

If you like'll love this!  I was skeptical of blueberry in my oatmeal as I'm a big Apples & Cinnamon and Maple & Brown Sugar fan, but WHOA...this stuff is so so so good!  I eat a bowl of this for breakfast & it fills me up and is so yummy!!

Time to shed some pounds!

The only time pudge looks cute, is when we're little!  I was thinking about that over the weekend when we were at an indoor play place & I was sitting on the couch watching the kiddos run by.  These little girls looked so cute in their tight little leggings, fat rolls, pudgy diapered bottoms...The Moms with the pudge, as I myself have, not so much!  Though thankfully none of them were wearing leggings to show the pudge...lucky for others, I don't either!
Over the past three years or so I've packed on 25 pounds & it's TIME TO SHED THE FAT!  I want to lose 30 - 35!  I started going to Weight Watchers on Feb 5th & it's like a game for me.  How many points am I eating, how many exercise points can I earn & how many steps have I taken today?  Do I really want to eat that?  Is it point worthy?!  My Mom told me about these Weight Watchers ice cream bars - HOLY SMOKES, I enjoyed one lats night as I watched The Bachelor & it was AH-MAZ-ING!  Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Bars & they are only 2 points! This points plus thing is a system that is really working for me!  It's keeping me accountable for what I'm eating b/c I'm writing everything down & honestly keeping track of what I'm putting into my mouth!
