Popsicles and Potato Chips

I went to the Weight Watchers website. Something about Jennifer Hudson being the spokeswomen really inspired me. I don't even listen to her music. I think it's the line in the commercial where she says "I've never been this size in my entire adult life." When I turned 18, I wore an 18. I weighed 180 pounds. By 22, I was into a 22 and by 24, I was wearing a 24. Now I'm 26 and I've kept up the trend... I can't fathom being smaller than an 18. Heck, I can't fathom being a 22 again. My biggest fear with going to Weight Watchers is the stress of trying to plan menus, especially since I've taken to living off banana popsicles and the occasional potato chips this summer. Cooking feels so overwhelming. I don't know how to put meals together. Usually, the Husband won't eat whatever I make ("I don't like it," "I'm not hungry," "That gives me an upset stomach.") so I end up cooking for myself and things aren't designed for just one person. How have people learned how to make "dinners?" My idea of dinner is making a box of mac and cheese and eating that. That's probably 65 points right there.

Hi
It's hard to plan meals when you are the only one doing the plan. Maybe you could buy the smart ones dinners for yourself at dinner and have a small salad along with it. It's a great plan, you will do well if you stick to it. Maybe you and your husband can work out something where you can get things that he might like that would also be good for you too. Good luck.

Hey! I am so glad that I found your blog. Thanks for commenting on my entry. It really inspired me.

Anyway, on to the reason why I am commenting.

I started Weight Watchers about two or three months ago and I love it!

The great thing about Weight Watchers is that you can eat whatever you want, just as long as it is in moderation.

Plus, they have tons of recipes that don't make you feel like you are on a diet. I have one that is for Weight Watchers' lasagna that is low in points and sounds really good.

I know you can check out a meeting for free so you should do it sometime and see if you like it. I have been on TONS of diets (and I mean TONS) and I really think Weight Watchers is something I can stick with.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to go to a meeting let me know!
