Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 36

It is Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 36 and this week I am at a big fat 0 lbs. lost and 0 lbs. gained, for a running total of 36 lbs. lost. Okay, if I am gonna reach my goal of 52 lbs. this year I am gonna HAVE TO lose atleast one pound every week the rest of the year. This makes me a little nervous since all the really good eat everything in sight because it all tastes so delicious and you only get this great food once a year holidays are coming up. I guess I am gonna just have to try to stick to my meal planning really closely and only splurge on holidays.

I have still been exercising. I have not been quite as disciplined about it this week, but I did get in 3 workouts. I am gonna change up the walking to aerobics for a day or two and see if a little variety makes me more motivated.
For this week's recipe I am gonna post an Apple Crisp recipe from one of my favorite sites. It is a blog I follow called Gina's Weight Watchers Recipes and Gina is a wonderful cook. I have tried several of her recipes and they are always super! I am gonna try this one later on this week because it is fall and I always want apples in the fall.

Well, in my WW experience, I always liked 0 pounds rather than that "+" in front of the numbers!! I stubbled upon your blog and I love it!! I started back to WW last week, and I am blogging my journey, thanks to your inspiration!! Keep up the good work!
