I finally reached my breaking point when last summer’s shorts were a little too tight. As of yesterday, I am a Weight Watchers member! I’ve heard from friends who were really successful with the program and I wanted to give it a try. My office is hosting meetings every Tuesday afternoon for 12 weeks – I don’t have to take up my precious time with R in the evenings to attend!
With my registration came a voucher for the e-tools, which I’m currently obsessed with. I can use WW on my pretty white iPhone, which will make grocery shopping and dining out even easier. R is going to humor me and do the plan to the best of his ability. Sometimes that man just needs an ice cream sandwich…or two.
Last night we made Citrus-Garlic Pork and if the “Oh my god!” we both said with our mouths full isn’t clear enough for you, it was absolutely delicious. For a side, we had Balsamic Vinegar Asparagus. I hadn’t made the pee-stinking veggies in a while and they were a little too crunchy for my liking, but still edible.
I’ll share the pork recipe and save the asparagus for another time. You know, when I cook them the right way.
4 servings, Points Plus value: 5
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1/2 C. lime juice
- 1/2 C. soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce
- 4 boneless pork chops, trimmed of all fat
Cook at 350 for about 40 minutes
This recipe, plus my 1-pt asparagus dish, filled me up for quite a while last night. I ended the day with a 0-pt dessert: sliced strawberries sprinkled with Splenda. I think I can get used to this lifestyle!
