Weight Watchers Wednesday…
It’s been 1 week since I started WW (for I think the 6 or 7th time!), it’s been a great week. A couple of changes I made are: I don’t eat after 7PM, just water, I keep track of my points in a journal, I’m trying lots of new, yummy recipes, working out regularly, eating protein for breakfast, staying away as much as possible from processed foods & I’m just trying to change my whole mental attitude, I want 2008 to be “the year”. This is my goal for this year: to become a healthier individual both mentally & physically with the support of my hubby & kids. Every Wednesday I will post my success and a recipe that I have tried during the week that my family & I have found to be very yummy!
