Wouldn't it be nice if we could come to Weight Watchers, sign our name and the weight we wanted to lose would just be gone!!
We know that change is not that easy - and in order to keep the weight off we have to change the way we eat (and think about food) and keep it changed. This takes some time and trial and error. Sometimes we think we are all set, and on the right track everyday and then something happens and we go back to our old habits. It might be a vacation, or a favorite restaurant or even being with a certain person.
Remember that we are always a work in progress. We need to take action every day. Each day is a new opportunity to move toward our goal. Each day we need to ask ourselves - what can I do today to get me closer to where I want to be. Sometimes it may be only one small step. Planning a Weight Watchers friendly meal, walking for twenty minutes on our lunch hour, or making sure we get the healthy oil are all things that will help do that. These are all things we can celebrate at the end of the day. I did something today to help achieve my goal!!!!
Eleanor Roosevelt said "The chief cause of failure or unhappiness is trading what we want most for what we want at the moment."
Try this for a great Weight Watcher friendly dessert:
INSTANT CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT MOUSSE
4 servings - points value 3 per serving
1 1/2 Tablespoon chocolate hazelnut spread
4 Tablespoons chocolate syrup
2 1/4 cups fat-free whipped topping
1. Combine the chocolate-hazelnut spread and 3 Tablespoons of chocolate syrup in a medium bowl. Add 2 cups of the whipped topping, gently folding it in with a rubber spatula just until blended.
2. Spoon 1/2 cup of the mousse into each of 4 dessert goblets. Top each one with 1 Tablespoon whipped topping and 3/4 tsp chocolate syrup. Serve at once or refrigerate up to 2 days.
See you at the meeting!!
