WW meetings

Tonight was my first Weight Watchers meeting in a long time. I don't know how I feel about them. Well - I guess I do. I love the accountability of going there to weigh in, but some times people try to dominate the meeting and not let the leader lead!

But - it was all good and all cookbooks were 50% off at my location. I picked up 3! Can't wait to try some new recipes!

So what did I do with my 5 extra points last night? I had a vitamuffin topped with an Edy's slow churned vanilla single serve ice cream cup. I love the portion control in these. The container is 3 points, and when its gone its gone! No scooping out more from the half gallon!

When I woke up this morning - I wasn't in the mood for breakfast so I had a turkey sandwich and some carrots.

Lunch was some leftover spaghetti squash and my great husband made some grilled shrimp & asparagus for dinner while I was at my meeting. Shrimp is such a points bargain! 2oz for 1 point!

I wanted something sweet, but didn't want to get in the habit of a processed dessert after dinner. So I had some vanilla yogurt with pomegranate seeds. I love that big strange fruit!

My husband is on a crazy junk food bender, after dinner he went to the store for a few things and came home with a slice of pizza and a cranberry almond magic bar. I had a small bite of each, and really regretted it. On one hand, I didn't want or need it, on the second hand I would have NEVER stopped at one bite, tracked it and walked away.

So I guess I am learning and evolving. I am not going to change overnight and these situations that I am presented with in normal life are going to help me be a better Weight Watcher.

Have a great night!!


  1. Glad the meeting was ok, you will have to share the recipes you try!!

  2. "Tracked it and walked away"

    Brilliant. That is the key right there!
