You might expect me to be a little disappointed however I'm too happy to let the scale bring me down. As you know I've been struggling with seeing results outside of the scale and today I finally can say I believe my body is showing the results of my hard work.
Tonight Hubby and I went out for dinner and I wore the dress from Sonny's Graduation party (June 2012). Guess what people IT IS BIG, not oh this is a bit loose big but rather I need to either buy a new dress or get this one taken in big. So BIG that while walking around the Town Center after eating the dress was falling off my shoulders, so yeah I'm feeling pretty good.
I haven't been experimenting in the kitchen much these last two weeks however I do want to tell you about some products I've been using that I absolutely love.
The first I got free with a coupon to my favorite chocolate store, Harry and David's. With any purchase I received a free relish, and like most I'm not one to pass up anything free. They have a bunch of great choices for us to try and we decided upon their Sweet Onion and Pepper. I used it Tuesday night in Omelets and it was wonderful.
The other item(s) we are particularly enjoying comes from Trader Joe's. Every Thursday night, after Weight Watchers we have pasta. I discovered Trader Joe's Ravioli's or as they call these items Trader Giotto's. Each package has two servings and has averaged out to be 6 points a serving and as we don't eat much on weigh-in days we were quite satisfied with have 2 servings. They have a variety of flavors our two favorites are Butternut Squash Triangoli and Goat Cheese with Sun Dried Tomato Ravioli. The raviolis are so flavorful that they barely require a sauce. Being ever budget conscious I cost compared them to speciality ravioli at Publix and BJ's. Trader Joe's came out the winner in both comparisons. Unfortunately Trader Joe's site doesn't have a link to each of their products which is why I don't have a picture for you.
