A new day…

I have been struggling the last few years with my weight.  I have finally come to the realization that it is time to do something about it.  I made a huge step in this journey and attended my first Weight Watchers meeting today.  I was nervous about how it would go and the type of people there but it was fantastic.  The facilitator is great and very motivating.  She followed WW the last 3 years and lost 200 pounds.  I don’t have that much to lose but I hope it works just as well with me.  From now on I am going to be posting the PointsPlus value to everything that I share on the blog.  I think this will help others who are also following WW.

This week has been a struggle for me.  I made a few healthy recipes that I haven’t shared but promise to this weekend!  I couldn’t get motivated to exercise.  I tried to just do WW online but didn’t feel like I was getting the whole picture.  Posting has been low this week because I have been trying to come up with a plan.  I started my healthy lifestyle change today and can’t wait to share it with you.

theSheenBean is going to still have recipes that aren’t all WW.  I still want to make cookies and desserts but I want to show you that I can just eat one and that WW builds extra allotments in so that you can have food that isn’t great for you and still lose weight.  I will be sharing some daily menus that include my breakfast, lunch and dinner choices.  I am not going to post my food intake each day.  That could be boring especially when I eat the same thing but I want to share my different ideas and what I feel helps me lose weight the best.

I hope that you all join me in this journey.  I would love to have comments and questions on the food and recipes that I post.  Feel free to email me about any WW questions you may have.

See you tomorrow with my exercise plan!

Have you ever tried WW and if so, did it work?
