My On-Again Relationship with Weight Watchers

So, over the years, I have had an on-again-off-again relationship with Weight Watchers.  I think I have joined three or four different times.  However, I rejoined "for real" in January of 2009 and vowed that I would make changes!  And I did!  I lost 40 pounds over about a year.  Here's a before and after, just so you can see the difference...

This is before WW...

And this is "After." 

I feel great about my progress so far.  But I really want to lose about 40 more pounds.  It will probably take 50 to make the Weight Watchers recommended goal.  I am just coming off a super-exciting and fun summer where I gained back about 10 pounds.  So it's back to counting points for me!

One thing I really struggle with is finding foods that are:
1.  Easy to prepare
2.  Quick to prepare
3.  Somewhat healthy (i.e. lower in POINTS)
4.  Tasty-- because everyone else in the household has to eat them, too!

As I come across food finds, I will share them here!


  1. I think it's great what you are doing, Liz! You look fabulous! What a great way to keep on track! I agree, it is tricky...finding healthy and quick foods. Also, not getting bored with the same thing. It looks like you've come up with some really great ideas already. Cheers!

  2. Rock on, Liz! I know you'll reach your goal. I've had almost the same relationship with Weight Watchers, and I'm thinking about rejoining, since I haven't lost much of the weight I put on since having my daughter last year. I plan to follow your blog and get some good advice!
