Friday Foodstuffs: Weight Watchers? Check.

A few weeks ago I discussed my issues with gaining weight and feeling gross.  In that post I said I was going to do something about it and you know what, I did!

First, I joined Weight Watchers.  I've only had two weigh-ins but in that time I've lost 5.4 lbs!  I'm really happy with the program.  It forcing me to be accountable for what I'm eating but at no point have I ever felt hungry. 

Do I miss the frequent dips into my bosses candy jar?  Of course.

Do I get annoyed with writing every thing I eat down?  Yup. 
Is it worth it in the end?  Totally.

I've already noticed that when I put on freshly washed jeans I don't have to do the "Stretch 'em out" dance!

I also said I was going to do the Couch to 5K program and this morning I finished week 6.  I ran TWO miles!  For some of you that's a warm up but 6 weeks ago I couldn't run a block.  I'm pretty proud of myself.

Cooking has been much easier than I thought.  There are lots of great websites that have recipes with points already figured.  I've had a few good meals that I would make even if I wasn't on Weight Watchers.  There have been a few misses too, like an eggplant parmesean that just missed the mark.  It taught me the lesson that substitutions aren't worth it...especially cheese.  Fat free cheese is disgusting.

This weeks meal plan isn't very heavy on new recipes.  I have a lot in my freezer that needs clearning out and I'm trying to do it while staying within my points range

Friday: Nachos on the skinny
Saturday: Hamburgers (bun-less for me), Black Bean and Quiona with Spinach
Sunday: Grilled Steaks, Baked Sweet Potatoes (to celebrate this girls birthday!)
Monday: Italian Sausage and Pepper Pasta
Tuesday: Green Chicken Soup
Wednesday: Kalua Pork, Steamed broccoli
Thursday: :Bahamian Curry

Anyone have an Weight Watchers tips they can share?
