A few weeks ago I did something which, in my book, is quite drastic.
I joined Weight Watchers.
Me, who loves dessert and organic butter and, well, feeling full....
It's not really a New Years Resolution, it's a "I can't get my big old post-baby butt in any of my clothes" resolution.
But, my friends, you needn't worry too much, I've been happily surprised by how it's going so far. I've lost about 5 pounds over the past two weeks, I've gotten to eat a lot more food than I imagined (ie I'm not starving!!), and most of what I'm eating is good. There was one snafu of the baked Mac of cheese and broccoli that only contained one measly cup if cheese for eight freaking servings (shudder) but we won't get into that.
This recipe, on the other hand was Delish! It comes from the book "Hungry Girl 1-2-3" by Lisa Lillien. Both the hubby and I decided we will be making this again, even after Weight Watchers!
