I am THRILLED to announce that all of my recipes will have Weight Watchers Points Plus! The fabulous and inspiring Jennifer Swafford from “It Sux to be Fat.com” is an amazing woman of God, and she talks all about her journey on her site!
She has personally lost tons of weight using Weight Watchers, and she offered to use the official Points Plus Calculator to factor the Weight Watchers points for all of my recipes! Now anyone on Weight Watchers can enjoy my recipes without having to figure out the points~ how awesome is that!?! Thank You Jennifer!!! Be sure to check out her amazing weight loss journey at www.ItSuxToBeFat.com!
I was recently talking with a friend who was feeling very frustrated about her lack of progress losing weight, despite her very strenuous efforts. I knew there had to be somewhere that she was missing it, so I began asking questions like…”How often are you working out, about how many calories do you think your eating, etc…”
When she told me she was working out 6 days a week, and eating about 1,300 calories a day~ it was no surprise to me why her weight wasn’t budging…for more than one reason! However, to sum it up, I knew she was not eating enough!
This seems very strange to most people, especially the average person with a ‘dieting mentality’ who has the ever-so-common belief that eating less= losing weight. This is not all there is to losing weight, and if anything, this is simply not true!
What a wonderful time of year, the time to celebrate our Savior, Lord and King~ Jesus! Merry Christmas!!! I thought i’d share my menu for the next two days (Christmas Eve and Day).
I will be spending Christmas Eve at my aunts house, and she will be making a ham, and everyone generally brings along a side or two!

Merry Christmas and Many Blessings to You and Your Families!!!
Something that’s been on my heart a lot lately is how our society considers it ‘normal’ to carry and suppress any baggage that they may be carrying. I think Americans are famous for holding onto things while still trying to go about their daily fast-paced lives…All the while, ignoring’ anything that could get in the way of their productivity, and thinking that it will eventually go away on it’s own.
The simple fact is that weight loss comes down to two factors: decreasing the amount of calories you are eating, and/or increasing the calories you are burning through exercise! The good news is, you can almost always make a ‘healthier’ and ‘more satisfying’ versions of the foods you love without sacrificing taste and feeling deprived! There is also a way to decrease calories without feeling hungry!
How is that possible you might ask!?! The answer is simple…by adding low ‘density’ foods to your meals. In doing so, you will be able to eat larger volumes of food for less calories and allow you to stay full for longer periods of time!
This knowledge has changed the way that I eat in so many ways! I am now able to to eat larger volumes of delicious food, and stay satisfied longer. I also have more knowledge on which foods to select that will fuel my body more efficiently and give me steady energy throughout the day.
So you may be wondering what is the ‘density’ of food anyway!?! Well, here is a basic description along with some examples to demonstrate what I’m talking about!
