My Weight Watchers Vegetarian Meal Plan

Today, I'm excited to share with you a meal plan that I came up with for my dinners (and some other meals too). These are Weight Watchers recipes that I found on their app and that fit into my budget and dietary restrictions.  I'll be sharing a post every day each week about my previous night's meal. I want to give you an idea of how they tasted, if they were worth it, how many points they are, and how we liked it overall. If they are good enough, they may just make it into my weekly rotations!

A letter to anyone trying to lose weight:

I get discouraged too sometimes. No matter how hard I stare at Kale, it never turns into a doughnut. How disappointing. Sometimes, when Shuan T. tells me to, "Keep going! You're looking great!", I want to yell back, "My legs are jello now! I don't look great- I look like I'm melting! Stop smiling at… Continue reading A letter to anyone trying to lose weight:

What I wish I had known: Anxiety chat

I don't think anyone knew the real truth of the matter. There were so many people around me, and sometimes I felt like screaming at everyone to get away from me. Of course, I couldn't though.
