Hooray! Week 6 on Weight Watchers and I’m down 20.6 pounds!!!! Lost another 2.2 pounds this week (and that was WITH my punctuation being here for the week.)
Pretty damned psyched!!
I think that my success this time is a combo of:
A) Weight Watchers — of course. B) Less stress from not having to worry about Gigglemom C) Cooking for myself. Not having to make side dishes and giant portions of food.
So, I am well on my way (or weigh… see what i did there?) to my goal of 155 pounds
That’s my initial goal weight. I think I was at a decent weight 10 years ago when my lowest was 159. I might dare for 150 for a nice even number. Since I am 5’6″, the high 150s are at the upper end of the goal scale.
In the meantime, I hit my 20 pound mark! I am less than 3 pounds away from my WW 10% goal (which is 23 pounds) and then my next personal goal is 30 pounds….
when i hit 30 pounds, i’m gonna go get a massage.
THIS WEEK’S GOAL: to start going back to the gym…. because next Saturday, I actually am “running” the Manasquan Mid-Winter Beach Run — okay, it’s 2 miles and i will probably do a brisk walk.
HERE IS MY PROGRESS SO FAR — in a nice tidy spreadsheet.Share on Facebook
so, i’ve been on a quiche kick.
it all began with THIS RECIPE that I found on AllRecipes.com
but since i’ve been on weight watchers (and kicking ass by the way…) i’ve revamped it so that it averages out to be 4 points per slice.
i’ve scrapped the bacon bits (although you CAN use the oscar mayer pre-cooked bacon slices and crumble them and figure the points)
1 (9 inch) deep dish frozen pie crust — I use a regular – not deep dish… averages out to 2 points per slice
4 eggs, lightly beaten — i use the 4 servings of Egg Beaters instead.
1 cup half-and-half cream — i swapped it for FAT FREE Half & Half
then i load it with veggies. tonight i had green, red, orange peppers and onions that i chopped up and mixed with the cheese.
I’ve been using Reduced Fat shredded cheeses. Personally, the Sargento ones have been great.
in last week’s i used Reduced Fat Shredded 4 Mexican Cheese from Sargento and poured fresh salsa on top then added the egg mixture. served it with a side of guacamole! YUM!
here’s the finished Quiche… I call it The ConQuichetador!
So I started Weight Watchers on December 31st, 2011. Yes. New Year’s Eve!
My weight that day was 236.0 glorious pounds. HOORAY!! (*ahem* that was sarcasm)
Anyway, I’ve been focusing on myself finally for the first time in nearly a decade and in 5 weeks, I’ve lost 18.4 pounds! (granted, I’ve got a lot more to lose, I want to hit 155 pounds at some point. It’s looking like Fall 2012 for that. according to my Weight Loss Spreadsheet that I’ve mapped out.)
