Hi, everyone! Hope y'all are having a good week.
Did you weigh in today?
Please leave your comments for your scale and non-scale victories, or other encouraging thoughts for those of us following my Weight Watchers Wednesdays posts.

Update from last week's post where I said I was going to give up Coke. I'm so funny. I like my Coke. I'm just going to switch to Coke Zero instead.

Coke 12oz = 9 points ........................ Coke Zero = 0 points


Weight Watchers Freestyle

Last week was hard the first couple of days on the WW program. But, if you can get through those first couple of days and stock your pantry with healthy choices, I promise you, things will get better and easier and it will became a part of your life. Not something you "have" to do, but something you enjoy doing, to something that is just part of who you are that you don't even think about.

Please check out this link to the Weight Watchers official site with information about the new Freestyle program. Includes a couple of videos that are 2 minutes or so if you care to watch them. Also includes links to other very awesome things... like a list you can print with over 200 foods that are 0 points. This has been updated since I was on the program before. It includes fish, chicken, shrimp, corn, beans..... all those southern foods I grew up on and looooooove.

I'd love to hear about your journey in the comments, or any questions you may have. Make sure you click the option that allows you to get notified when I reply to you.

Enjoy your week everyone!
