Weight Watcher Weigh-Ins are going great! I have lost 6.6 pounds towards my goal of 10-15 pounds! Someone asked me to talk about what I eat. Not Much. :) If you know anything about WW's, you know they use a POINT system. I only get 18. That's not much at all people! I usually eat my breakfast in it will last longer. I'll eat a bar of some sort that is 2 points. Later in the morning I'll eat an egg (2) or peanut butter on wheat. Lunch is a can of green beans (in vinegar). That may sound weird, but it's like a three bean salad without the other beans! I love anything with vinegar. With the beans I eat a can of tuna or a peanut butter sandwich or cottage cheese and fruit, etc. I always have an afternoon snack. Usually it's popcorn. Sometimes it's fruit or another bar. Dinner is small amounts of meat, veggies, fruit, salad or whatever we have or have left over from another night. Before bed every night, I have a Healthy Choice ice cream bar. I drink black coffee, water and diet Coke during the day. So, that's it for the food. I DO exercise every week day. LOTS of exercise for a 53 year old!!:) I work out with weights. I do lots of fast walking and I take a Tuesday *core sculpting* class that really kicks my rear end...literally!!! I have made WW's a life style for years and years but in the last year or so I slipped and my eating had gotten out of control. After losing the pounds I want to lose, I hope to make it a life style again!

Now, on to an important update!!!

The new grandbaby is growing like a weed! My DIL says she thinks she is going to give birth to a toddler! :) Her due date is Dec. 2, but baby boy/girl is breech for now, so she may go in a week early for a c-section. Keep this precious mommy and baby in your prayers. 

We. Cannot. Wait. !!!!
