Weight Watchers Wednesday…

Chewy Shreddies Cereal Bars

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!

Weight lost this week: 3.2 lbs

Chewy Shreddies Cereal Bars

3/4 cup light corn syrup

3/4 Smooth light peanut butter

3 cups Shreddies

1/2 cup chopped dried apricots

1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut

1/4 cup dried cranberries

Spray 8-inch squre pan with cooking spray; set aside. Microwave corn syrup & peanut butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until peanut butter is almost melted; stir until well blended.

Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Press into prepared pan.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Makes 20.

CAL 130, FAT 4 g, Fibre 2 g WW Points = 3 (very, very low 3) for 1 bar, but, I cut mine a bit smaller to make more & I’m counting them as 2!

Satisfies your sweet tooth!

Recipe is from the Winter 2008 Kraft What’s Cooking Magazine.

    Congratulations on your weight loss!!! I have been lurking around here through Jill’s blogroll. I have been on WW many times also but eventually the weight comes back on. It sounds like you’re trying to incorporate a lot of healthy wonderful habits – they sound like Bob Greene’s Best Life Diet. Good for you for trying to overhaul your mental self too. I think that is such a HUGE thing that everyone misses. My new favorite saying by Thich Nhat Hanh – “May I learn to look at myself with the eyes of understanding and love.” I wish you all of the best luck in becoming completely happy and healthy from the inside out!!!
