Weight Watchers Wednesday...

...or whatever food I attempt to make using WW recipes.

So, I have come across this Weight Watcher Wednesday stuff, and would like to part-take in it.
My goal is going to be to try new WW recipes then posting them on Wed. We recently bought a new grill and I have a new WW recipe book for grilling. I want to attempt to make some of this awesome yummy looking foods! :)

I'm thinking maybe the WWWednesday will get me motivated to try new recipes. Cooking is not my forte and I really don't see it becoming my forte anytime soon (maybe if I was a stay at home mom & had more time). But for now I would like to challenge myself by making some new recipes. When cooking, I like my meals simple and to the point, because too may directions in a recipe drive me crazy! I get lost in what comes next and when to do what with what! Thankfully though, the WW recipe books have been great! Their recipes don't normally stress me out {too much}. :grin:

Here is what I made last night:

Weight Watcher Brownies {not on the grill of course, but still WW's}
I've made these a bunch of times, and really like them. They aren't as chewy as other brownies, instead they come out tasting more like cake, which I love, because I love me some good cake! :)

Recipe: Brownie Crunch
Before going into the oven

PS - I also get WW recipes through Hungry-Girl dot com
{I recommend subscribing to their daily e-mail's, they are great! I am always printing the e-mails and adding them to my recipe collection. I have tried a few of the recipes, and have really liked them, even my husband likes them! I will have to post some of the recipes I have already used}
Also to spice up this Wednesday even more:
My friends over at: Operation Skinny Bitc* do this thing called "Roll Call Wednesday"
Where you give an update of your weight and how you have been doing this week:
Well here is my "Roll Call Wednesday" update:
*** PLEASE note that I am going out on a limb and actully telling you all my weight & you know for most girl's {including me} that is NOT and easy thing to do***
I weighed myself today, and so far since Oct. 2008 - I have lost a total of 28 pounds! I was 168.? and now I am at 140. From size 12-13ish to size 6-8ish (pants size). My goal weight is around 130-135.
My motto is this: If you push yourself, you WILL surprise yourself.
..and really that's what I've done to get where I have gotten. :)
