Non-scale Victories & Other Weight Loss Miracles

Cookbook Update, New Year Goals, and All That Jazz

Filed under: Cookbooks, Thoughts on Weight Loss, Weight Watchers — Carol @ 8:41 am

First, an update on the new Weight Watchers cookbook I mentioned earlier this month. In keeping with my 2009 goal of trying new recipes, I made the Microwave Baked Potato Nachos last week. They were very good, and very filling. They were also very quick and easy to make. As promised, the recipe took 20 minutes or less. In my case, it was closer to 20 minutes, but that’s because I’m a bit spastic when it comes to slicing and dicing things.

Maybe I should buy myself a Veg-o-Matic. They’re making a comeback, which may be a very good thing for me. I used to have one that I bought on eBay. Don’t know whatever happened to it. I think I may have sold it at a garage sale or something.

As for my first weigh-in for 2009, I was down 4 lbs last Thursday. Not sure how I pulled that one off, but I did. I’m now less than 2 lbs away from “onederland”, unless that omelette I ate yesterday sticks around until Wednesday. I definitely need to re-focus a bit, though. I’m slacking off in my tracking and drinking water. I’m not even going to mention my lack of visits to the gym. Then again, it’s kind of hard to psych yourself up to walk a half mile and back in below-freezing temperatures. So, I’m cutting myself some slack there this week.

My goals for the New Year so far will be to:

  1. Get back to tracking every day, every bite.
  2. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily.
  3. Eat more filling foods.
  4. Eat fewer processed foods.
  5. Try to get motivated to work out to a DVD or something at home if the weather is too cold for a walk to the gym.

I’ll probably add more as time goes on, but right now, that’s my plan:-)



  1. Congratulations on being so close to onederland! I am just starting my weight loss quest and it seems so daunting, but finding others online who have been successful is very motivating.

  2. I got close there for a while, but onederland still eludes me!
