Weight Loss Journey

I told you my weight loss goal is to lose 20 pounds by April 1. I actually have 35 pounds to lose but 20 is my first goal! I joined Weight Watchers Online on January 3 and to date have lost 5.4 pounds:) I need to lose 1.5 pounds per week to make my April 1 goal plus if I lose 1.5 pounds per week (average) hubby will reimburse me for the Weight Watchers Online fee. I haven't been able to exercise all month because the first week I had a kidney infection and then had a bad fall. Hopefully I can start with the exercise next week.

Yesterday I made a HUGE pot of soup from a recipe I have had around for awhile. If you want a delicious soup with very few calories and super good for you, try All-You-Can-Eat Soup Diet Basic Recipe! As the recipe reads, it is only one Weight Watchers point per cup. However, I added some garbanzo beans and a can of corn so that upped the ante just a little. I also added a little more salt to the recipe and about two teaspoons of Sweet Basil. Oh, one more little change I made was to use a vegan chicken-style broth instead of the regular chicken broth. I hope you will try this soup but if you don't have a big family, prepare to freeze some or eat it for a week!!!

Have a great weekend!



  1. Kat, sorry about your illness and your fall !!! hope you are on the mend & good to go next week. Congratulations on your weight loss ! I began the WW program on my own last week; the 1st week I lost a pound, and this week I put on 2 ;pounds, so feeling a bit discouraged but will get back on the band wagon. Going to borrow your saying, thank you for posting! and for the soup recipe too. Be well xx

    1. Thanks, Cindy! Yes, I hope I am much better next week as well! Losing weight is not easy at our age but I am determined to make it work this time!
