Not eating cardboard!

I'm really "enjoying' Weight Watchers more this time around. Before, l never took advantage of all of the features of their site.  This time I am doing so much more, including recipes.  I am surprised at the number and variety of recipes they have on their site.  Here is a sampling of what we have had in the past two weeks:

Chicken Marsala
Baked Macaroni & Cheese
Baked Zita with turkey sausage
General Tsao's Chicken
Sesame Steamed Broccoli
Chicken Paella
Cheesey Chicken Enchiladas

And every single recipe so far has been a keeper.  My husband LOVED the General Tsao's chicken, especially with the Sesame Broccoli.  So far M and K have enjoyed all of them as well.  Some recipes may not be kid-friendly, since they are made of mostly fat-free products but so far all of these recipes have been very nutritious.  This week, our menu consists of:

Chicken Parmigiana with Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella Salad
Turkey Burgers and Chili Fries
Chicken Marsala with Egg Salad
Sweet & Sour Meatballs with Garlic Herb Bread
Chicken Finger and Seasoned fries with ranch dip

I don't know if I'm allowed to share the recipes online, since you have to pay for membership to get them, but if anyone wants one email me and I will send it to you.  All of the recipes were EASY and rather inexpensive to make.  I had to splurge and buy sesame and peanut oil for the Asian dishes, but the bottles will last forever.

Today is weigh in and I'm down another 2 pound, for a total of 8 pounds and 6 inches lost so far.  I hope I can keep the momentum because it is SO much easier to be motivated when you're losing...I like being a loser:)


  1. Way to go! Those sound REALLY yummy! My goal for my March freezer cooking is all weight watchers meals. :)

  2. YAY!! Congrats on the great progress!!!
