Don't Give Up

I get a lot of questions in my email inbox asking me how not to give up.  It is such a hard question to answer because so many times I have felt like giving up.  Even now at my goal weight, I want to give up at times.  It still gets frustrating and hard.  I found this little song and yes it is child-like, but it has a great message.  Think of all the hard things you have done in your life.  From learning to walk, riding a bike, or even the harder things that being an adult brings like a divorce, death, or unemployment.  Try to really dig deep and know that if you can make it through other hard things in your life, you can surely make it through your weight loss journey.

I hope you enjoy this little song and video.  And Yes, Bruno's hair is fab!
Don't Give Up!

Chicken with Apples and Stuffing

My Momma told me about a recipe for apple porkchops click here for recipe, and it sounded so yummy... But I'm not a fan of pork chops ever since the grown gal told me that pork chops taste like human meat, according to others in her circle.  Every time I eat one, I just can't get that out of my mind.  So I made the recipe with Chicken.

The recipe calls for apple pie filling, but I substituted and used sugar free apple pie filling and it turned out great.  Another tip from my Momma.  Don't add butter to your stuffing, you can't even tell.   It is hard to believe that I am cooking this way.  I never, ever thought I would be like this, but maintaining my weight while eating a varity of foods is really important to me.

Just when the hubby was about to eat the last of the chicken, I remembered that I forgot to take a photo.  So here is the almost gone dish.  My modified version only ended up being 7 Weight Watchers PointsPlus per serving.  Delish!

Body Scans of a 250 Pound Woman

I was goofing around online and came across  While surfing around this site, I found this Body Scan of a 250 Pound Woman.   If you have been thinking about losing weight, perhaps this will open your eye a bit and give you some motivation to start your weight loss journey.  It compares a 250lb woman to a 120lb woman and gives you some information about the health differences.   Can you imagine how much better my body feels?  It not only looks good on the outside, but on the inside too.  Amazing!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!  I love Valentines Day.  I love getting awesome amazing prizes from my hubby.  I also love spoiling my hubby and kids with valentine gifts and candy.  They get so excited... And unlike Christmas, there is no pressure... Just a fun relaxing and romantic holiday.  

I keep a little heart dish on my coffee table full of chocolate and valentines candy and for some reason the little conversation hearts are really killing me.  I just can't seem to keep my hands out of them.  I guess I keep thinking I'll have just one little heart, it couldn't even be 1 point.  Then I move to 3, 6, 10.  Arghhh!!!

After eating a box all on my own, it was time to figure out the Weight Watchers PointsPlus.  This little 1 oz box is 3 Points.  Phew!  Not to shabby.  I will be having some more for sure.

As you can see the entire 1 oz box is just a handful.  Just enough to satisfy my sugar craving.

Chex Mix

Have you had Chex Mix Muddie Buddies before?  Oh my, oh my!  It is absolutely delicious.  I even make it from scratch.  Well actually, this stuff has made it to my purge list because it is 4 Weight Watcher's PointsPlus (130 calories) for only 1/3 cup.  1/3 cup??  I am not even getting started after 1/3 cup.  This is what I will be eating instead...

This stuff is so yummy.  The chocolate Chex cereal is only 4 Weight Watcher's Pointsplus (130 calories) for 3/4 cups.  3/4 cups is more like it.  Trust me... You won't need milk on this, just eat it as a treat.  MMMMmmm!

Another program to follow...

As you all know I am a huge fan of the Weight Watcher's program.  I love the flexability and the support.  I also know some people that say "Weight Watcher's is not for me".   I am personally planning on sticking to Weight Watchers for the rest of my life, but a great alternative I have found is this totally amazing website called Spark People.  I find the website very helpful.  It is free and has some amazing tools on it.  You even have an online food journal, dining out suggestions, personal journal, scheduler, support groups and much more.

So if you are wanting to follow a diet plan and don't have the money to do Weight Watcher's try and let me know how it works for you.  I have been playing around with it and find it really helpful.
