Weight Watchers Wednesday

You know, I think I’ll do something different this week. Instead of concentrating on weight lost, I’m going to focus on how many pounds until my goal weight. But before I do that – here’s a couple of things of note.

1. Yummy Treat

These giant latte bars are deLISH and only 1 point (old system)/ 2 points (new system). They’re also over $4.00 dollars a box, BUT Publix has them on sale, buy 1 get 1, until Thursday. So basically, go today.

2. The other day I was looking at my stats and noticed that another blogger linked to me because of Weight Watchers Wednesdays. She ALSO does WWW, along with other useful posts, unlike certain other people we could name. Interestingly enough, she’s from Marietta and we have a mutual friend on Facebook. Stalk, much? So you might know her, it’s a small world. If you’re interested in checking out HER Wednesday posts, go to Curious Georgi.

3. ZERO point Mexican Soup Recipe

  • 2 cups fresh green beans, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 small zucchini, cubed
  • 1 cup tomatillo, chopped
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 14 ounces canned Mexican-style tomatoes, Mexican-style preferred
  • 1/2 medium poblano chile
  • 1 medium Spanish onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 roasted red peppers, packed in water
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle chile in adobo
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 Put snap beans, garlic, zucchini, tomatillos, jalapeno, diced tomatoes, green chili pepper, onion, green pepper, cumin, oregano and vegetable broth into a large soup pot.
  • 2 Puree roasted peppers with chipotle in adobo sauce in a blender or food processor, and add to soup; stir to combine.
  • 3 Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, partly covered, for about 10 minutes.
  • 4 Stir in salt, lime juice and cilantro. Serve.
  • This looks like too much work for me to actually do, but if someone would like to make it for me, I’d eat it!

    Okay, so the scale. As of today, I’m 14 pounds from my goal weight. 14  pounds until I’m strutting my stuff in a tiny bikini. Why not, Kathy Griffin did it and she’s like, fifty!

    Looking good!

    Or I might just stick to shorts.

    So, how far are you from your goal weight?

    1. Good job, Lisa…..I’m actuallly about 12 pounds less than my goal weight, but I wanted a cushion so I wouldn’t go over so easily and have to pay for a meeting!!! It took me over a year to get where I am now!!

    2. Trying to lose weight? Good Lord, girl, you are just right to me. Besides, those stinkin’ diets don’t work! Eat lots of protein and do some serious WORKING OUT ! Calories taken in vs. calories burned, and don’t forget that!
      Those supposed “diets” just take your money.
