Last night we had our first weigh in..........
I lost 3.6 pounds and Raymond lost 6.6 pounds!! Can you believe it?!?!? We were so ecsatic with our progress!!! We both truly felt like we gave it our all and it paid off for us! Of course, I knew Raymond would lose more than me 1) being that he's male, and most men drop weight slightly faster than women and 2) in years past, if Raymond wants to drop a few pounds, all he has to do is give up something like sweet tea and I swear the boy will lose like 30 pounds! Such is life! But we are so happy with our lifestyle change and have been cookng up some serious Weight Watchers recipes! With WW, it's not about diet food, so you can truly eat whatever want, but it teaches you portion control, and making wise and filling food decisions. There isn't anything that you CAN'T eat, but if you eat something "bad" for you, you use up a lot of your points, so you won't have very many left for the day to stay full. It's a simple concept really and it's a good thing, because this chick can't handle a complicated diet. So I thought I would start posting our progress and then closing with a great recipe from the week. The one we made last night was SUPER delicious.....
