They are proving to be rather stubborn despite the walking.
Is it a sluggish metabolism or the hypothyroid condition that I have?
Whatever it is I am getting frustrated!
The Weight Watchers Regime advocates keeping track...so I'm writing down the WW point count of everything I eat and drink.
I am not too hungry at breakfast time so I usually eat lightly...some fresh fruit and yogurt.
But I am usually really hungry by lunchtime...
Keeping busy with chores, actioning domestics, walking, running errands doing the things we women do can really give you an appetite.
Something that fills me up, satisfies and sustains me until my tea and a small mid afternoon snack is what I need.
Wraps are the stars in my book...they are fast, easy and versatile.
Hummus, red cabbage and pea shoots on a corn and wheat wrap.
High fibre goodness that sates and satisfies.
You could use a scrambled egg, a modest serving of lean meat or poultry,
a bunch of cooked, raw or roasted veggies
whatever you have on hand.
Think healthy and use salsa or hummus.
Avoid the creamy dressings which will quickly add fat and sabotage your eating regime.
A piece of fruit for "dessert."
Loaded with flavour and simply delicious...plus it's a low point count lunch.
Weight Watchers and Hostess Approved!
I'm waging war on these persnickety pounds!

Tish Jett the writer of one of my favourite blogs wrote about it in a recent post.
I think Candace Bergen is lovely and it is her right to choose how she eats and if she is comfortable in her own skin I say Bravo!
