Happy Sunday my friends! It has been a busy but inspiring weekend and I am feeling so vivacious and full of positivity! Although it has only been 3 days, my Weight Watchers journey has taken off on the best foot possible. I feel as though it is such a testimony to how ready I am to lose this weight. As corny as it sounds, I can feel the shift of change inside of me. No fad diets, no pills, no quick fixes just hard work and determination.
I had a small non scale victory (NSV) yesterday and although it wasn’t a huge deal I felt really empowered after the fact. My darling call me from work around 5 pm to tell me he wanted to get Chinese food for dinner that night. He knows my obsession with crab Rangoon and was genuinely trying to treat me, not realizing how much one dinner can throw off a whole day of hard work. I told him I would order it for him and as I looked through the menu I could feel myself letting my guard down. One crab Rangoon wouldn’t kill me right? Wrong! So so wrong! I know that one would have lead to 5, and of course I would need lo mien with it. After that who knows, all I know is I would have felt like a failure. SO, I ordered his food and hung up quickly without a chance to add anything on. It. felt. AMAZING! The pride I felt in my new found willpower was unexplainable. To others, this may seem silly, but to me and other who suffer from weight problems and extreme over eating, this is a HUGE victory. I’m pretty happy!
Yesterday I found what may be my new favorite sweet snack EVER! I have had a box of Trader Joe’s reduced guilt brownies up in my cabinet FOREVER, so I decided it was time to finally give them a try! The instructions are simple, add yogurt and powder mux together and VIOLA! Pop in the oven for 25 mins and bask in the chocolaty goodness! I used vanilla greek yogurt instead of regular and I waited anxiously for the finished product to cool enough for me to try! Ten minutes later, I took my first bite and I was HOOKED! The box makes 12 servings so I cut it up and bagged them each separately. A tin little 3pp each! Try it out if you haven’t yet, you will NOT regret it!
Did this weekend bring any small or large victories to you? Try anything new? Share! I find so much inspiration in every suggestion! Back to Sunday Funday for this lady!
