Weight Watchers & A Wedding

Only 8 months till we tie the knot…and after quitting smoking [gaining 15 lbs] I drove my chubby ass booty up to a Weight Watchers meeting this week. In the past, I’ve lost 20 pounds on the plan and tried just about everything else under the sun. For you girls out there who “never have to diet or work out” you can stop reading now…and feel free to jump off a bridge…just kidding 🙂

But for the rest of us girls who are known as “thick” “pretty in the face” or just about any other back handed compliment for those of us who are a size 14 and above…I’m dedicating a new section of my blog to us!

In just 3 days I’ve had a BLAST coming up with healthy / low point / delicious meals…and decided I needed to share them with the rest of the world. Even if no one else reads this…it’s still fun for me share my love of cooking, and the fact that it can be healthy not taste like shit crap.

I’m super pumped to lose some weight [as if a wedding on the horizon wasn’t enough of a challenge] — Quitting Smoking was THE hardest thing I’ve ever done. And right now, following WW is looking like a breeze, and a new challenge…and most of all… A NEW GOAL.

To start out…I wanted to share what I made for dinner last night:

Spinach & Feta Wrap w/ Yogurt Dip :: 5pts for the whole thing!

Prep / Cook Time: 10 min

Ingredients:

3 cups Fresh Spinach

1/2 cup Fat Free Feta Cheese

1 Large Clove of Garlic Minced / Pressed

Dash of Onion Powder

1 tbsp Olive Oil

Basil & Tomato Wrap (or any other wrap that’s on sale and low fat)

Olive Oil Spray (I use Publix Brand)

Yogurt Dip Like This:

In a large skillet sauté the  olive oil, garlic, and onion powder till the garlic starts to soften at a medium heat. Add the spinach and stir until wilted (about 2 min). Remove spinach and place in bowl with feta cheese. Stir till fully mixed.

Back in your skillet add your wrap. Place on one side all of the spinach & goodies (like an omelet).

Press to make it nice and crispy, and if you’re feeling brave flip it!

Remove to a plate and add a tbsp of yogurt sauce to dip.

I’m telling you what…my fiance is one of the most “meat and potatoes” men I know…and he LOVED this dish. Try it out and let me know what you think!

Happy Friday!

    I thought I would be one of those girls that didn’t have to diet or exercise my whole life. Well, after two kids I need some dieting and exercise. I have not been the weight I was before Ian and I have a belly pouch. It has been affecting me and I am determined to lose some weight. Proud of you for quitting smoking, it is a very hard thing to do. But if you can do that, you can do this. Good luck and I love you!

    I think your little strike throughs make me love you a bit more! lol I always thought i’d be one of those never have to diet/exercise gals…then I hit my mid 30’s. As I’m nearing my 35th bday, I’m finding it really hard to lose the weight I’d like to lose. Keep the recipes coming! Way to go on the quitting thing too – hubby and I did that together right after we met, 11 years ago! It’s lovely to not smell like smoke or hack up a lung after a night on the town!
