Weight Watchers Wednesday

So.......we weighed in last night and ta da!!! I was down another 2.2 pounds and Raymond was down 4 pounds!!! We were not particularly diligent this past weekend so we were both sure that we had definitely not lost and we were praying we hadn't gained. Luckily, our hard efforts the rest of the week paid off!! We are well on our way my dears!!! I received a star (as did Raymond) because we've lost 5 pounds. You get one every time you lose another 5 pounds so I have one so far and Raymond's gotten 2!! It gave us some hope that since we've been good all week, and have a strategy for the beach, that we might not fall too far off the wagon while there!!

So, as promised, here is my recipe for the week. My MIL made these for us last week, but we hadn't eaten them yet when I did my post so I saved the recipe for this week's post and they are absolutely delicious!!

Southwestern Kabobs
1 lb lean boneless pork chops, cut into 1-inch cubes
4 tablespoons reduced-sodium taco seasoning
1/2 large onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces

In a plastic bag or shallow bowl, combine pork and seasoning; toss until well-coated. Alternately thread pork, peppers and onions onto 4 long metal skewers. Grill, turning occasionally, until pork is nicely browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Serves 4.
4 points per serving.

Tonight I am headed to get a pedicure and a manicure (thanks Ellen and Ryan!!) because that's right ya''s almost beach time! We leave Friday to go to Sullivan's Island and we are very much looking forward to a vacation!!! If we ever get through with all the packing needed for all of our gear! It's sad when Raymond is having to do a dress rehearsal for packing the car!! Much maneuvering to be done!!!

Have a good night!!

Love, Charlotte


  1. So happy for the two of you on your progress! Keep it up! Have fun on your vacay!

  2. Loved your post, Charlotte. I can hear the excitment in your voice. We are the same way - so ready! I had the pedicure today - but not the manicure - no nails. I did have one of Holly's facials yesterday. Man, oh, man, it was awesome!
    Hope the packing goes well.

  3. You are doing awesome! Keep it up. I'm contemplating trying the Couch to 5K program after I've fully recovered. We'll see what happens when the time arrives though. :-)

  4. Ooohhh...I love your post!!!

    This is my first visit to your blog...wonderful!!! I look forward to returning again and again!!!


  5. Good luck with Weight Watchers! The weekends are always my down fall- if I lose 3 pounds during the week I gain 2 pounds back on the weekend, so sad!
