Weight Loss - Week 1

Today officially completes my first week on Weight Watchers. As I mentioned previously, I love Weight Watchers because I can so easily adapt it to my lifestyle. I can easily take any recipe and calculate how many points it is simply by entering the ingredients, which also means I can lighten it up if necessary. Another aspect of Weight Watchers that I like is that I can take any item I bought at the store and enter the nutrition information to find out how many points it is...heck, the even have an app where I can scan the UPC code for point! This just makes it so easy for me!
Courtesy of Kristen and Pinterest, I found this fabulous blog SkinnyTaste . She has wonderful recipes that are healthy and she already had the nutrition information and Weight Watchers points figured out! I tried a couple of her recipes this week and absolutely loved all of them. I didn't take pictures of any of our meals, so I will just include the links.
Baked Eggplant Sticks
Baked Chicken Parmesan
Broiled Tilapia with Tomato Caper Sauce
And last but not least, her wonderful Chocolate Cupcakes , which are made from a store bought cupcake mix and are beyond delicious!

I have truly felt so much better this week, being aware of what I am eating makes me think before just grabbing anything. I find that I leave meals filled but not stuffed! Also, I have found that I have more energy and in reality have been drinking only 2-3 cups of coffee in the morning, as opposed to the pot I used to drink every morning. This has not actually been a planned, just something that happened. So, here is where I stand after my first week

Began 1/15 - 156.5 pounds
Today 1/23 - 150.0 pounds
Lost - 6.5 pounds
Pounds to reach goal of 113 - 37 pounds
