Weight Watchers 3rd weigh in, and this week I am taking Idina Menzels lyrics to heart "Let It Go"

I can not believe I have been doing Weight Watchers for three weeks. For me, that is a long time. The few times I have actually attempted diets they would only last a week at the most. This time I am really starting to make it part of my life, and it is becoming very comfortable. Every Sunday I spend about an hour writing down every meal for the upcoming week. I then make my grocery list which gets tackled the next day, on Monday. Here is what has really shocked me, my grocery bill has actually gone down. I am only buying what we need, and I am realising that the amount we need is far less than what I am used to buying. The other cool thing is that by the end of the week we have very little waste. I am use to a refrigerator full of waste, I hate to admit it, but it is true. Leftovers that never get eaten, food that starts growing mold because I did not get around to using it, good old fashion waste. But not now, the recipes are simple and allow you to stick to some real basic items in your pantry and refrigerator.

This past week I was off of the Simple Start program and on to the traditional point counting program. So this week I added Tacos, Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, Ham & Cheese Omelettes and Dijon Pork Cutlets to our menu. All except the Pork Cutlets were super amazing, and the Pork Cutlets would have been good had I added the red pepper flakes that it called for. I thought it was going to be way to spicy so I omitted them. Big mistake! We ended up with super sweet cutlets. Oh well, you can't win them all

Weigh In
Starting weight March 19 = 175.8 lbs
1st weigh in on March 25 = 167.7 lbs
2nd weigh in on April 1 = 166.1 lbs
3rd weigh in on April 8 = 165.2
Total = 10.6 lbs

This week is going to be a bit of a challenge. We are going to be spending three days at our local childrens hospital. I will not be surprised if I do not have any weight loss, or if I even gain a pound this week. This week I am taking to heart Idina Menzels lyrics "Let It Go" from Disneys Frozen. I am Letting It Go this week, I will try to stick to my planned menu but I will not beat myself up over it. I am only human...
