Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

the one where Amy confesses



I have not gone to a Weight Watchers meeting since the end of June. I went today and I am glad I went and will continue to get back on track.


I did gain, A LOT! Like 11 pounds in 10 weeks! I would say what the heck but I knew what I was eating so its all my fault. There you have it. I confessed.

Now that thats over with, whats your favorite healthy foods to eat? Do you have a favorite low fat recipe?

Girl, I hear ya on the WW thing! I keep losing and gaining the same 3 darn pounds. WHY!? I just can't get it together.... I need some serious intervention or something.

I found you through your husband's WW post -- you BOTH have great websites!

Amy,

I have a bunch of recipes I could email you. Rick and I are on a diet and have each lost about 20 pounds. What types of foods do you like? Email me at macy@isiprint.com

Glad you are continuing with WW. This too is truly a journey kinda similar to adoptions. You have to learn to enjoy the journey just as much as the destination ;)

PS-I still know it is tough though-for BOTH

Way to go for getting back on track!! One of my favorite healthy things to eat is steamed broccoli! I also love pretty much all fruits, especially berries, which are great for snacking, especially when I have a sweet tooth!

I don't really watch what I eat but should because I am about 40 lbs overweight. I just like food waaaaaay too much! We really do like veggies tho but don't eat near enough of them in the winter.

Laura said...

We love a stir fry! It is a great way to get lots of veggies in at once!!

What a great step to go back! I gained a ton over the summer and pretending that I didn't. I love WW and need to follow your example. I have to say we (even my super-skinny hubby) LOVE hummus! We just tried Lemon-Cilantro one from Fresh & Easy, and it was so good. With pretzels or carrots, it's my snacking downfall. Keep up the good work!

Here's a good website with good WW recipes. There's not a new one everyday, but it's a good place to start.

we can all relate to these struggles. You can do it!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm with Sara the Hungry Girl cookbook is a good buy. It's a collection of recipes that are good for you and each recipe includes how many WW points it's worth...That's what I read about it anyway...My mom has one gonna try and snatch it from her for a while. :)
