Healthy You Challenge Check In

I feel like I've done really well this past week. My WI yesterday showed a loss of 4.8 lbs and I earned 31 Activity Points last week. My goal for this week is to earn 35 (I'm already up to 9!). I've been on program all week and I'm enjoying my yummy food. My meals have looked so much more appealing than the meals of the rest of my family... I even think they've sometimes been jealous! I'm starting to feel some changs in my body. My thighs feel more firm and my pants are getting looser. This weekend might be a little tough though. My daughter's 4th birthday party is on Saturday and we'll have another party on Monday evening with family. However, I'm determined to make this recipe from Shirl's recipe blog so I have a healthier alternative to snack on. I'm even considering making her cupcakes from a WW friendly recipe. Afterall, I've found that kids only lick the icing off the cupcake and don't care what the rest tastes like anyway! Does anyone have any good recipe suggestions?

Anyhow, I'm thrilled to be a part of the Healthy You Challenge and I hope to get around to reading and commenting on many of your blogs this week!

Don't you love the feeling of your pants being loose?

31 activity points - WOW. And the scale results - double WOW!

Hey Holly -

You're doing great! I'm doing WW, too. Love the Points plan! It helped me lose 50 pounds the first time - and it'll work again for SURE!!

Let's keep encouraging each other, since we're some of the "new kids on the block" with this challenge!

Thanks for your words of support today. :-)

I don't know any recipes I'm afraid, but a quick google search brought up this: http://www.bigoven.com/158597-WW-Applesauce-Cake-(Weightwatchers)-recipe.html

Good job!

Congrats on having such a great loss this week. It doesn't take a huge loss to start seeing and feeling results, which is always great for your motivation. Keep up the great work!

I have a recipe for awesome cupcakes. It's a Weight Watcher's recipe from when my Mom was a leader in the 80s.

Choco-Cherry Cupcakes

1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
1 can light cherry pie filling
3 eggs (or eggbeater equivalent)

Mix all ingredients together, preferably by hand to keep from breaking cherries. Place in a cake pan or muffin tins and bake according to box directions.

They are so moist and so good! They freeze really well too!

I hope you do make those cookies, they really are yummy and they just look darn impressive to boot

I have some angel food cake variations on my recipe blog, I can't see why those can't be cupcaked vs. caked...
