It is Weight Watcher’s time! Heading back to the WW this week after a long absence and a big weight gain. This lifetime member has a ways to go to get back to goal. I am not looking forward to re-loosing weight I have already lost, but I am looking forward to getting back to my former, more fashionable (I mean this only in the sense that my clothing options are less limited) size.
That being said, I’ve decided it’s time to re-visit the tricks and tips that led to my success the first time around (the one’s I shelved after finishing grad school and going to work). I plan on posting these throughout my weight loss journey.
Tip 1: Don’t
I love sweets! If I tried to deprive myself of chocolate I might be okay for a week or so, before suddenly finding myself knee deep in Hershey wrappers. Feeling deprived doesn’t work for me.
Instead of making chocolate off limits, I found some creative ways to make low point deserts. The yummy looking brownie below is one of my favorite deserts.
The Brownie is made using No Pudge Brownie Mix. It’s really easy to make.
Just stir the all natural mix in with low fat vanilla yogurt and bake.
I use half of a serving of slow churned ice cream. Then I add some strawberries. I also find that using pretty plates somehow makes the food taste better.
