10 pounds to go!

I just weighed myself and I am at 131. Yay! I haven't been strict about counting points this week, so I was wondering what I was going to see on the scale. I am happy the numbers are still going in the right direction. The fun starts as I work toward losing the last 10 pounds during the holidays! I have been thinking about the Weight Watchers food that I think is delicious and I would eat it even if I wasn't trying to lose weight. So I'll share with you the products I have found to be nutritious/low calorie and YUMMY!

This is the only frozen entree that I have found that doesn't taste like a frozen entree.

This raspberry yogurt is the best yogurt I have ever tasted!

This next yogurt is not a Weight Watchers product, but it must be mentioned. Yoplait Light Apple Turnover, which I tried yesterday, is the first of these dessert flavored yogurts that actually tastes like dessert. I thought the raspberry cheesecake flavor would be my favorite, but the flavor is weak and it ended up being my least favorite. The pineapple upside down cake flavor was good, but it wasn't dessert quality, just good yogurt. I will try the strawberry shortcake flavor today.

I am not a popsicle/fudge bar fan, but Matt told me these fudge bars are good and since they are 1 point, I decided to try them. I hate biting into cold things, but these bars are softer than most bars, so it doesn't bother me as much to bite into them. The chocolate flavor is strong, so of course they are yummy!

I did go to the grocery store yesterday. I picked up a package of sugar free chocolate chip cookies for Kayla. I also brought apples and pretzels with me last night. Kayla was able to eat a serving of the cookies, but I don't think her mom really approved of them. I got the impression she would like me to stick with snack foods for Kayla, so that is what I will do. Mallory, thanks for the snack ideas!

When the Achievement girls saw Noah last night, they wondered what happened to him. Kate happened to him. While at the grocery store, Noah was in his car seat and Kate was in the back of the cart. She stood up and reached for Noah, to give him kisses I'm sure, but ended up digging into his forehead. Ouch!

Joey~ you are on a roll with only 10 to go...that's awesome:)
Thanks for the fun tips on your favorite foods. I will try the angel hair marinara for sure. Also, the yogurts both sounds yummy.
I thought the sugar-free cookies were a great idea:)
Poor Noah's head, luckily they heal quickly:)

You're an inspiration! I just started going back to the gym, but I still have to get on the proper food wagon...

POor littl guys head. It really is the worst to be the youngest, isnt it?/ Im impressed with your weight loss! I can never be disciplined when it comes to eating. Though I am quite partial to white cheese flavored rice cakes... not to bad.

Great job Joey! One of my favorite low cal high fiber snacks is hummus with those rice/pecan crackers made by Diamond. They contain no wheat and are low in fat.

I like the angel hair marinara, too. I wish I liked yogurt. I love the fudge bars. But I have to say I like a lot of WW frozen dinners, as well as Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice.

I think it's unfortunate that you have to go to so much trouble for one person - I think her mom should send her own treat! But that's just me ---
