You can eat normal food and still lose weight.

This is the 3rd week of my starting Weight Watchers, I don't go to the meetings, but I started blogging about my weight loss to keep me accountable and it is working. The thing that is important to me anyway, is to plan ahead, to stay accountable, and to be honest with yourself. I write mostly to me. It all started here, I started to blog my menu, and when it came time to change my eating habits, it has been so much easier because of my new menu posting habits. This is my menu for this week, all very healty even those those Chilli Fries, don't look healty they are.

Monday: Grilled Cheese and Tomato soup 5 points

Tuesday: Chilli Fries w/ Cheese, Salad... Yes it is WW 8 Points

Wednesday: Chicken Enchiladas 6 Points

Thursday: Tostados With beans and beef 8 points

Friday: Cabbage Rolls w/Rice and Broccli 8 points

Life Made Simple!

Menu Planning has really changed my life. I was worried I would not be able to be on Weight Watchers and plan a menu the way I used to (borrowing from all of my bloggy friends). I was sure I could never look at all the good recipes without wanting to just toss my meal plans out with the dishwater, but as a matter of fact it has been fun looking at different foods and changing this and that to make it more Weight Watcher friendly. Everything I put on my table now I can have, with just a substitution here and there. Here is my menu for this week:

Monday: Meat Loaf, Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans

Tuesday: Beef Stroganoff and Egg Noodles W/ Salad

Wednesday: Cheesy Chicken W/ Beans and Rice ***Cinnamon Chips and Ice Cream

Thursday: Chicken Quesadillas with Mexican Rice

Friday: Grilled Hamburgers and Oven Baked French Fries.
