PostHeaderIcon Andrea's Weight Loss Tale - Week 17

Tweet me!

This week I lost 1.5 pounds for a total of 36.1. I was excited to be accompanied to my weekly WW by my friend Kay. Kay is my neighbor but also a colleague as we work in the same industry. Kay and I have done some walking together and she has followed my weight loss journey here. She does not need to lose anywhere near the amount I need to, but she wants to lose some and was curious about how the WW program has changed since she last joined in the 90's. She e-mailed asking if she could come along and I enthusiastically welcomed her aboard the weight loss train.

We work near one another so we'll get to attend meetings together and motivate one another to stay on track. Kay is also a great cook, doesn't eat beef or pork and knows a lot about foods and ingredients generally, so I'm sure she will share some good food finds with me as we drop pounds together. She has already alerted me to some research involving artificial sweeteners which I consume every day. I need to be more aware of the downside of artificial sweeteners. 

One of my fellow WW members surprised meeting attendees by bringing a dish she made from the WW website - Old Fashioned Chicken Pot Pie. The dish called for reduced fat crescent rolls and a skim-milk based sauce, and it was delicious with a one cup serving equaling 5 points. As someone who loves chicken pot pie, I really enjoyed the many vegetables and seasonings present in this dish. I plan to contribute my own dish to this week's meeting by making the Italian Sausage and Pepper Pasta for attendees. The recipe was featured in our Weight Watcher Weekly newsletter and it looks tasty, featuring turkey sausage and red wine - mmmmmmm. 

Tune in next week for a review.
