It’s almost Christmas! I’m sure you knew that, right?! So my inlaws are in town and today and the next few days promise to be a crazy whirlwind of gifts and outings and eating. Oh, the eating. I’m trying really hard, but it’s so hard. There are so many opportunities to eat so many wonderful things … [Read more…]

Yes, ladies (and man), it’s that time again. We are so proud of you for making it this far!! Time to pull the old scale out, blow the dust off, and step on. Are the numbers dropping for you? Good! If not, that’s okay too, but buckle down because we’re about to enter the hardest two weeks of the … [Read more…]

…and the pizza won. It’s been a hellish few days for me. My daughter, Mia, is sick with a mad cold. Nothing makes her happy but being held and being nursed. Can I just tell you my boobs are sore? Mkay, now that I got that out, I’m wondering if I get extra points for all the nursing I’ve been … [Read more…]

Wow, I’m sorry it’s been so long since I posted. I haven’t fallen off the wagon or anything, luckily, just been very busy. My 12 month old has been sick since Thursday and I’ve spent all of my extra time cuddling with her. I’ve done well with my eating, I just haven’t had time to actually enter my … [Read more…]

The original recipe doesn’t call for it, but I can’t imagine it without the salsa! I’ll call it Crockpot Chicken Ole’ POINTS® Value: 6 Servings: 4 Preparation Time: … [Read more…]

Who doesn’t love TEQUILA?!! Lisa introduced me to this Weight Watchers recipe a couple of years back and I’ve been hooked ever since. It has a little more prep than I like, but the results are totally worth it. It’s great on the grill or in the oven and delicious with Spanish rice or a salad. … [Read more…]

Do you know that if you breastfeed you get 10 extra points a day on Weight Watchers? As far as I’m concerned, that’s reason enough to nurse Mia until she starts kindergarten! Okay, that’s kinda much, but damn, I’m totally not looking forward to scaling back 10 points when I’m done nursing. She just … [Read more…]

Congratulations on making it through Challenge Week 1!! We are so proud of you! So how did you do the first week of the challenge? We know it was tough. Lord knows we all had some bumps in the road, but we made it!! Wooohoooooo. So today, we still don’t have Mr. Linky working, but we will, … [Read more…]

If you’re an online Weight Watcher (and you’ve logged in recently!), you might have noticed some changes. WW has a new plan called Momentum. It seems they’ve done away with the Flex and Core plans, and come up with a new option that’s the best of both worlds. Something new and fabulous. Something … [Read more…]

This past weekend, I ate my way through went to Houston for an early Christmas with my parents. Oh yes, I ate. And ate, and ate. I’m actually a little ashamed of myself right now. Okay, ALOT ashamed of myself. I’m afraid to even go within 10 feet of my scale because it might start yelling at me! You … [Read more…]

Okay y’all, my name is Christy, and I’m a snack-a-holic. Seriously. That’s my major downfall when it comes to dieting. When I went this route a few years back, the 100 calorie snack craze wasn’t in full swing, so my options were seriously limited. Well, they weren’t really limited, but it was a … [Read more…]

Today was a busy day. My daughter had her 1 year checkup at the doctor. It’s crazy how I’ve struggled with my weight most of my life and she’s a tiny little thing weighing in at 16 pounds 4 ounces. She’s 1, folks. The other crazy thing is that she weighed the exact same thing I did when she was born … [Read more…]

Oh my goodness! It’s been a crazy week for me. Between working and kids and counting points, I’ve been one busy mama. I will say that, so far, it’s been a good week. I feel great about my weight loss journey so far. I’ve fallen back into Weight Watchers online easily and it is like riding a bike. … [Read more…]

So I added a What’s Christy Eating tab to the top of my section of the blog. Go here to check it out! I’ll try to list everything I eat, everyday, with points values! So I had to tell you about my dinner. I was so excited that I could eat so much for so few points. Barilla Pasta has a Tortelloni … [Read more…]
