Weight Watcher Friday - Week 34

Weight Watcher Friday doesn't sound as good as Weight Watcher Wednesday, but I'll be getting weighed in on Fridays for a while. That day works better for me.

I came soooo close this week, but missed by a hair. So next week, we'll call out the marching band, jugglers, clowns and balloons for a big celebration!

This week's weight loss:
1.2 lbs for a total of 49.8

Photo on the left was taken in March, when I had already lost about 10 lbs. The photo on the right was taken this past Saturday.... In my size 14 opposed to my black, 18/20 stretch, elastic waist pants.

Weight Watcher Wednesday - Week 33

errr...rather Weight Watcher FRIDAY! (I couldn't make the meeting on Wednesday...first time I've missed but it was unavoidable).

GREAT big surprise today. I knew I had stayed "OP" as they say..."on program"...and continued my trips to the gym, but didn't expect this big a loss. Makes up for the slight gain last week. (AND, last Friday, I helped my daughter bake over 200 cupcakes for her co-workers wedding. Limited myself to one very small cupcake)

This week's loss:
3.8 lbs for a total of 48.6 lbs lost.

New recipe

I tried a new recipe this week. Brownie mix with a can of black beans! Sounds like a strange combination, doesn't it? The recipe calls for 1 box mix and 1 can of black beans. I drained and rinsed the beans and put them back into the can and filled with water. I pulverized them in my food processor and added them to the brownie mix. That's all...2 ingredients. I baked them in a 13x9" pan for the time indicated on the box.

I cut them into small pieces and served them at a family picnic last week. I wanted to see if anyone could tell what was in them and wanted more opinions other than mine and Mr. Wizard's.

The kids loved them...they ate them so fast they didn't realize they weren't your average 'brownie'!! The consistency is strange...almost 'rubbery'. Most adults admitted they were good and would eat them. Mr. Wizard did not like them at all nor did my sisters' husbands. The women in the group agreed that they would eat them this way...though there is an odd consistency.

Weight Watcher Wednesday - Week 32

I'm late posting my results for this week. It's been a crazy busy week...and I wasn't happy with the results of my weigh in. I can honestly say that I don't know how I gained weight this week except that my body might be 'readjusting' to this stuff called "healthy eating". I worked out as much as every other week...but I'm not discouraged...I've come too far for that.

This week's loss is a gain... 0.4 lbs. gained.
