I know there aren't many people out there reading this yet. :) But for the handful of you out there that ARE, I just wanted you to know I AM working on getting recipe and product links up! :) It's a process--but it's coming along!

My main goal in starting this blog was to show how the Points + program through Weight Watchers is truly a lifestyle--NOT a diet. The things I post here and things my family eats, TOGETHER. And it is how I plan to cook and eat the rest of my life. I knew when I started out on my weight loss journey that if I could not follow a plan that would be sustainable in the end, it would all be in vain.

I have truly loved the flexibility of this program, and how it has allowed me to start to make changes that not only affect ME, but my entire family. I may not eat PERFECT, but I can definitely say I am eating better and healthier than I ever have before. I am AWARE of what and how much I am putting in my body. Some days I feel right on track. Other days I can look back and see places I could improve next time. But 60 pounds down, and I know this was the right lifestyle change for me!

I hope you feel free to ask questions if you need. Or if you're on your own journey and want to share, I would love to hear from you as well! There is strength in numbers, and in LOSING other numbers (on the scale) together! :)

Be looking for some of my favorite low point snacks, products, and kitchen essentials that make eating healthier a cinch! I am so excited about this project and sharing what's worked for me, and would LOVE your feedback and ideas as well! :)

Thank you so much for starting this blog - it's a great encouragement to me as I continue on my own WW journey. And it also helps with recalibrating my eyes to normal portions. Thanks again!

I LOVE IT!! Brent has already lost 9 pounds with points plus and I have only lost 4, but I am still nursing so I get a few more points and I totally use them! I am so excited to try some of these yummy foods. You are awesome for putting these all on here!
