I ate too much at Christmas.
Shocker huh? I think we all feel like we've gained ten pounds (or more) after we have eaten our way through Christmas gatherings, but Christmas food is just so delicious! More pecan pie please.
When we returned home and all of our Christmas eating was over, we watched a commercial for Weight Watchers. We've watched them 100 times before, but we actually had a conversation about this particular commerical, maybe because the guy's name in the commerical was Matt and my Matt could relate. It must have been good advertising because within five minutes I was signed up...again...for Weight Watchers. As the commerical states, it was easy for Matt because his wife did all the work and well, it will be easy for my Matt because I will do all the cooking work and he will just get to eat it and hopefully get a little skinnier.
I had great success with WW back in my single days in Texarkana when I ran the Wellness Program and hosted a WW program at my office. Now that I'm married, I haven't had as much luck! I'm hoping this go around will be different and, like everyone else around New Years, I will actually shed a few pounds.
I came across skinnytaste.com several months ago and, now more than ever, glad I happened upon it. All of her recipes are "skinny", but "tasty" as Gina states. What I like about her recipes is that she has the Weight Watchers points listed with the recipes. A few nights ago I decided to try her Baked Chicken Parmesan. It is rare that I have all of the ingredients for a recipe in my pantry or refrigerator, but this night I did, and lucky for me because the roads were covered in ice and I wasn't going to make it to the grocery store. Matt was skeptical, but after he tried it he was excited and said it was great - "it is healthy, but has flavor!"
