Fat Tuesday? More like Fat Everyday!

Happy Fat Tuesday everyone! According to my ww meeting leader today is our day! HAHA!

So last night was my weekly weigh in and I lost...

....1.4lbs for a total weight loss of 14lbs!

Am I happy? I am not sure. I haven't gained, so that makes me happy. However, I should be losing more than 1.4lbs. But of course that is my fault because I ate McDonalds and only exercised 3 times last week. This week I hope to do better because I reallllly want to get to my 15lb goal!!

So last night I created a great alternative to a cheesesteak. And it was delish!

I made myself a chicken cheesesteak with ground chicken (3 pts/4oz), sauteed onions (0pts because I sauteed them in olive oil spray...the best invention ever btw), pickles (0pts for unsweetened pickles), ketchup (2pts per 1/4 cup) , and a whole wheat roll (idk the point value). basically if I don't know the point value of something, I just guess a really high number and call it a day. I probably should have just used the wheat ww rolls for 4 points. But who can resist a yummy artisan whole wheat roll? Obviously not me! mmmm

All in all it was a great cheesesteak alternative (even better that I didn't use cheese!) and it was sooooo good. It is a good idea to create things like this instead of eating the same old stuff every week. Of course I had to buy steakums for the bf, but that just means more chicken for me! And here is the win...I now have leftover ground chicken to use to make myself 2 healthy tacos for dinner tonight before class! WIN and WIN!

My taco includes:

Ground chicken with lower sodium taco seasoning (3pts/4oz)
ww cheese (2pts/1/3 cup)
fat free salsa (0pts)
whole wheat 96% fat free tortillas (2 or 4pts each. I forget if they are fajita size or burrito size)

That is a really low point meal and if I was at home I would probably add sauteed onions and peppers. This meal sure beats the usual fast food I would eat before class! Wow...my day is full of win! Yay!

Ok...so goals for this week...lose at least 1 pound to hit the 15lbs milestone.

I CAN DO IT!
