Weight Watchers Wednesday

Welcome folks! Come on in, the scale awaits. Before we get on with this, I would really like to give one of YOU the chance to weigh in first. No? Okay, but I warn you, I really rocked it this week.

Drum-roll, please! I lost 2.5 pounds.

Whatever. I more than doubled what I lost last week and I didn’t have any bad meals. It wasn’t so much WHAT I ate, but how MUCH I ate. My problem is that I see those 29 points as mandatory. Would it kill me to stop at 27 one day? Do I really have to rustle around in the fridge until I find a 2 point snack just because I CAN?

My best day was when we remembered a huge box of shrimp in the freezer. 2 ounces of boiled shrimp are only 1 point, so I ate boiled shrimp all day. Whoo Hoo. I lost weight AND money.

Sorry Coach Houser, I didn’t manage to do any exercising because A) I hate exercise and B) I always take it as a license to eat more. But I’m thinking I might actually get off my tail and shake it for a minute or two this week.

I apologize to everyone for that visual.

So how did YOU do? A friend of mine told me she got discouraged this week and gave up. DON’T! If you have a bad day, just move on! Today is a fresh start. DO IT FOR YOU! Sorry, I was watching Biggest Loser and that Jillian is intense!

Anyway, this afternoon I had a craving for something sweet, so I made the oldest Weight Watchers recipe in history – the Pineapple Angel Food Cake.

Easiest. Recipe. Ever.

You get one box of Angel Food cake mix and a 20 oz. can of crushed pineapples.

Mix well. Pour into a greased cake pan.

Cook at 350 degrees until brown. This took me about 20 minutes.

Serve with a dollop of fat-free Cool Whip. My dollop might be a tad big. It might be twice as big as my piece of cake, but “dollop” is vague anyway, so why sweat it?

The point value per piece is 3. It’s really simple, but YUMMY. Seriously, JD has already eaten half of the pan. My friend Matt, who likes high-falutin baking recipes that take two days to make, LOVES this cake.

Make cake, feed half to your husband, shake your tail. That’s my wisdom for the day. Feel free to leave yours in the comments.

Stay Encouraged!

  1. Oh my stars!!!! I miss that cake sooooooo much!! COmpletely forgot about it…. bet it would’ve been “healthier” than the Italian Chocolate Cake Morgan and I made last week 🙂 haha

  2. That sure looks good maybe you can make it when I come down. I have been on my diet for a full 2 days.

  3. I hadn’t thought of making it that way…..I sliced my cake in thirds and put the pineapple mixed with ff cool whip in between each layer…Good idea….thanks……

  4. Awesome job LT! 2.5lbs is HUGE for you!!!

    The cake looks great too! Just the mix and the pineapple?k No other ingredients?

    For people who like/love pumpkin, this has been my go-to snack/dessert this week (it’s like pumpkin pie without the crust):

    With hand mixer, mix together:
    2 cups FF milk
    1 pkg SF instant vanilla pudding
    1 pkg SF instant butterscotch pudding

    Mix in:
    1 large (29 oz) can of pumpkin (not pie filling)
    Pumpkin pie spice to taste (I ran out so just add cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves to taste)

    Makes 5 1 cup servings. 1 cup = 1 pt (I always stir in FF whipped topping to make it lighter)
