This is what happens when you join Weight Watchers…

I can’t believe it’s been 3 months since my last blog post! I’m so sorry! I got all excited by the pretty blog template and the cherries, then totally expected that I would blog all my favorite recipes. The best of intentions right?

The truth is, once I joined WW I really changed the way I cooked. I am trying to re-work some of my most favorite recipes, but there are just some that are way too high in points for me to justify cooking.

I’ve been slowly successful with my new way of eating and moving. I’ve lost almost 17 lbs since my last blog post. I feel tons better and have really grown to like Bagel Thins and Fat Free Shredded Cheese! My favorite thing to eat much to the chagrin of my children, ”Grilled chicken again??!!” is grilled chicken and grilled asparagus. I could eat a ton of that yummy charred asparagus!

Don’t worry, this won’t turn into a Weight Watchers blog per say, but I will be sharing healthier versions of my favorite recipes and new ones that I come across along the way.

There are a couple of good WW friendly recipe blogs I’ve been browsing and bookmarking that I’d love to share with you. {Click on the pictures to visit them and browse their recipes!}

Chubbie Chica has great menu’s that she posts with mini recipes and WW point info. If you are like me, I get stuck in a rut and make the same dishes over and over, so I really appreciate someone else’s menu ideas.

Gina’s Weight Watcher Recipes is full of wonderful pictures of the recipes she shares! It’s like the WW version of Pioneer Woman Cooks!, well without the cowboys and droopy eared Bassett hound.
My Sister and I drool over the pictures and make mental notes to definitely make that next time!


Don’t give up on me and my cooking blog just yet! Keep checking back and I promise I’ll make more of an effort. Really!!


I’ll leave you with this: a before and after
