Weight watchers update

I'm so in and out of love with weight watchers even I don't know if I'm doing it or not half the time!  The past week or so I've really tried to get back into counting points religiously and even planning meals - highly unusual behaviour for me!

Dorset cereals muesli with fresh strawberries 7pp


I love watermelon in summer - could possibly eat my own weight of the stuff


Massive box of strawberries (we'd eaten about half by the time I took the photo) for £3.99


Scallop spaghetti recipe from September WW magazine - 9pp


Chicken wrapped in pancetta from the September WW magazine - tasted nicer than it looks!  10pp 


Homemade strawberry and banana smoothie


Tried out WW custard - tastes very synthetic and totally lacks any of the creaminess of custard.  Wouldn't buy this again.


Cheesy haddock Florentine from September WW magazine - 10pp 


I served it with roasted sweet potato wedges - 4pp for 150g


My new favourite breakfast - WW blueberry muffin - 4pp


So far they seem exclusive to Asda which is a shame because that's the furthest supermarket from where I live


I tried out some of the new bars available in class - both rather nice.  I liked the nuts and berry one much more than I expected - very fruity and tastes indulgent for only 2pp


I went a bit mad in the £1 shop after I found all of this weight watchers food!




I tried out WW wraps - not bad for 3pp


I used them to make this little lunchtime pizza with tomato puree, red onions cooked in balsamic vinegar, pancetta and mozzarella - it was amaze! 


And finally an apple freshly picked from a tree outside and sprinkle with cinnamon - a lovely 0pp treat


I only lost 1/2lb this week, but that's better than putting on =)

Who else is still doing WW?

  10. The strawberry and banana smoothie looks delicious! Is that all that is in the smoothie or did you add milk?

  11. Thanks! =) @Jen, @City Girls Fashion Box, @bluebells @♥ Sadie ♥

    Keep going fellow dieters! xx @.x.Sarah.x. @World Of Beauty @Amy @Claire

    That's a fab idea @Tamsin

    The smoothie is mainly fruit and lots of ice but I did add some skimmed milk too @Diana
