Week 2 - Weigh-In


Photo from a hiking trip  in NH.

Monday was my weekly meeting and weigh-in.  I am down 1.6 lbs for the week!  This brings me to just over 21 lbs.  I had previously lost 26 and still need to get down to that after indulging a little too much during the holidays.  It's easy to do right?

I am very lucky to have had a lot of wonderful comments from fellow Weight Watcher's members about my blog which really helped encourage me.  My biggest little (8) also came up to me today and said, "Mummy, I'm really proud of you for your blog.  You're making us healthy and helping others have healthy hearts.  It's really important to take care of your hearts."  I'm not sure he had any idea how much he encouraged me on my path to health.  Setting the right example for little ones is hard. They soak up everything and the last thing I want them to learn is my stress eating!

Low-Point snacks are essential! - Light & Fit Greek Yoghurt (2 SP) mixed with
2 tablespoons PB2 (1 SP), banana (0 SP), and tea (0 SP)
This week was all about using our toolkit.  I'm going to do a post later in the week about how I plan my week to be successful and what I like to put in my toolkit.  I'm also going to start posting weekly menus and shopping lists for those recipes to make it easier for all of you to plan your weeks. Anything that cuts down on planning is always a success to me!

I am working on posting the following recipes for the week (most likely in the evening due to my littles needing to get into bed):

Wednesday: Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf and Healthier Buffalo Chicken Dip
Thursday:  Slow Cooker Creamy Sundried Tomato Chicken
Friday: Slow Cooker Lemon and Olive Chicken Tagine
Saturday: Skinny Beef Manicotti
Sunday:  Weekly Meal Plan and Shopping List (using previous week's recipes)

Let me know what you think and if there is anything that you would like to see in future posts!
