Weight Watchers

Since starting weight watchers on Monday, my sweet and supportive husband is doing it too!!! It makes it so much easier when he does things with me, cooking for the family is way better than cooking for me and then cooking something different for everyone else!! Heaven knows, when trying to eat healthier, there are so many temptations and obstacles, that I need all the help. Dieting before kids and marriage was always so easy...so it is very helpful to do it together. And, I am pleased with results already!! I have lost a notch in my belt loop and I don't weigh in til monday!! Let's hope I can keep it up through the weekend:)

Shopping for food after my first meeting on Monday, was a huge eye opener. It seemed there were healthy options on every isle. There is such a thing as EXTRA lean ground beef...I always just saw lean grnd beef before! And not to mention that whole wheat pasta doesn't taste like card board, it is delicious!!

I'm so grateful for all the possibilities in healthy eating. Weight watchers stresses whole grains and substituting wheat for white bread...and I was astonished with all the varieties to choose from. We have had some really yummy dinners this week, and even better that they have been good for us too!

Concentrating on making all meals taste good, we now sit at our dining room table, it just makes meal time feel even more special. It has been extra fun enjoying our new dining room as well.

I'm glad it's going well and that Mark is so helpful. Weight Watchers seems to be doing a lot of good for people. It's true that some things really aren't so difficult, like just switching to whole wheat stuff.
