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!
