Works for Me Wednesday - Weight Loss

It's been a while since I've posted a WFMW, but when the call came out for good dieting tips and strategies, I knew I wanted to play. When I've not been pregnant (which actually hasn't been very often in the last few years), I've been an avid supporter of Weight Watchers and their plan and it's worked for me very successfully. Below are a couple of low-point sweet treats that I've enjoyed and can attest to being good!

2 Point Shake

1 cup skim milk
2 tablespoons fat-free, sugar-free pudding mix - any flavor
1 tablespoon fat-free Cool Whip
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 ice cubes

Put all into a blender and process until smooth and thick. Makes a big glass-full. If you want it a little creamier, less icy, add another couple tablespoons of Cool Whip. That will get you a more shake-like consistency.

Weight Watcher Brownies

2 T. low fat brownie mix (I recommend No Pudge Brownies, VERY good)
1 T. yogurt (any kind, although I generally stick to fat-free vanilla)

Mix in a small cup and microwave 1 minute. You can top with fat-free Cool Whip if you choose. The beauty of this - it is 1 POINT!! When I would make these, I would generally double for a 2 point brownies snack and it's a pretty good sized brownie that way.

  3. This sounds pretty good, although, I have to be careful with artificial sweeteners and things. They give me trouble in the tummy. I was thinking about maybe doing Weight Watcher, but I'm nursing. I am wondering if it would work at all. I feel so fat right now!
