I tried for a month to jump start my “diet” on my own after growing a food baby (borrowed that term from another blogger-perfect description, don’t you think?) during the month from Thanksgiving and Christmas.
It just wasn’t happening, so I bit the bullet, drug out my credit card, revved up the old computer and joined Weight Watchers online…..AGAIN.
This is the third or fourth or fifth or maybe sixth time for me, and I know from experience that WW works.
The first time, about 6 years ago, I got rid of about 12 extra pounds and from then on, I have tried not to let my weight go up more than 5 pounds without doing something about it.
Some people think that is just dumb, but it has worked for me, so who cares what “they” think?
I did learn early on not to admit on the WW message boards that I only have a few pounds to lose. No sympathy there!
I get it though.
Anyway, this time I am trying to end my love affair with sugar and sweets so maybe I will develop the will power to just say no to the foods that trigger my overeating episodes.
No one needs a dozen cookies at one sitting, do they?
I found this recipe for muffins in one of the little flyers in our local paper, and they are GOOD, checking in at 6 WW points plus. Sometimes I need a breakfast I can take out the door with me, and these muffins do the trick.
