Weight Watchers, The gift that keeps on giving....

Back in 2000 I decided to get healthy. I chose to start exercising and to lose weight. I joined Weight Watchers at Work back then and it really changed my life. I learned how to change my relationship with food. I learned that I was eating to cope with my emotions. I learned that if I keep track of what I'm putting in my mouth I will lose weight and stay thin.

It took me about nine months to become a life-time member. I am currently five pounds up from my life time weight goal. The past few years the 5 pounds has become quite annoying. (I know you're probably thinking wah...5 pounds) but somewhere in my mind I am supposed to be at that life-time goal from 2000. And I know that five can lead to ten to fifteen.

So... back in November I decided to sign back up for my monthly pass and to get back into meetings. I actually altered my weight loss hypnosis CD to encourage me to keep going to meetings. lol. All the while, thinking I need to get back down to my life-time goal. Well, I think maybe nine years later my body has just decided to stay at this weight! Since November I'm down three... then up three... then down then up. It's becoming annoying. I'm wondering if I should just change my life-time weight goal and be happy with where I am.

With all that said, I'm really enjoying going to the meetings. They keep my goals fresh in my mind. I'm going to keep going just to keep on track. Who knows maybe I'll get back to that old weight again...maybe not.

One very cool thing about my meeting is that they give away prizes each week. Last week I won a Weight Watchers cookbook called "Hit the Spot, 140 Savory, Crispy, Spicy and Sweet Recipes You'll Love". If we win something at the meeting we have to try out the recipes or products and come back and tell the group about it. I thought I would share mine here.

I made an awesome recipe:
Overstuffed Avocado-BLT Pizza
1 18 oz prebaked thin whole-wheat pizza crust
3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
3 cups lightly packed mixed baby salad greens
1 tomato diced
1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and diced
4 Slices of turkey bacon, crisp and cooked and coarsely crumbled.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
Place the pizza crust on a baking sheet. Bake until crisp about 10 minutes. Transfer the crust to a wire rack and let cool slightly.
Spread the mayonnaise evenly over the crust. Top with the remaining ingredients and cut into 8 wedges.

3 points a piece.

It was soooo yummy!!

  4. That looks really great!! I think we'll have pizza for supper.

  5. This looks wonderful!

    I just wanted to say hello... I am currently an undergrad student in Texas and when I graduate I'll be working toward my Chemical Dependency Counseling License and eventually move up (after a couple of years as a CD Case Manager) and get a masters and eventually an LPC. I think hypnotherapy is very interesting! I'm hoping to get certified eventually to do Animal Assisted Therapy.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  6. Congrats on your weight loss. My husband and I are about to attempt to stop smoking. We have on line and phone support, smoking cessation classes, and a prescription for stop smoking drugs, all free. Congrats to you.


  7. Hi Jaci, I was trying to leave you a comment on your blog but it won't let me leave comments :(

    I love that you're specializing in Chemical Dependency. That's Awesome. We are quite the minority in the helping field.


Thank you for leaving a comment! I love hearing your thoughts and ideas.
