I made kabobs for a family gathering
This plate was from a different day. Chicken kabobs and steamed vegetables
And my favorite low point dressing to dip my vegetables and kabobs in.
Thanks for looking. I appreciate your comments

I painted the door, milk can and the teapot that I got from Costco. I wish I had a before picture! Trust me this is a huge improvement. Was sick of cleaning the white boreing door and there was just nothing special about the outside at all. By the way I am scared of the whipper snipper so the edges of my property are a mess. I will have to use the scissors lol

So how did I do it? well, 3 different ways. First let me tell you that I did a ton of research while pregnant on what diet I wanted to try. I decided on Weight Watcher's because it's not a DIET, it's a life style change and you can eat what you want as long as you have the points to "Spend". Anyway, I won't bore you with details that you probably already know ;) So the second thing was I breastfed/feed. You burn a few hundred calories a day breastfeeding. So it's good for mama and baby! Third, I started walking the dog to his Saturday camp instead of driving. It's just short of 7K round trip pushing a double stroller up killer hills. I also did a 5K with The Running Room
And just to add that with any life style change it takes patience, research and self discipline. Motivation helps too:)
So I decided to try and have some fun with recipes and made all kinds of stuff that I wouldn't normally make. This is to starve off boredom with eating the same old things again and again.
This is pancakes made with a ww smoothie packet and 1/3 cup egg whites or egg beaters. Mix and cook like a pancake. Top with berries and whip cream. YUMThis was mid cooking so it wasn't quite finished. I love stir Fry's so I try and use as many different flavourings with spices as I can.
I also eat a lot of Kabobs, fruit, salads, nuts, yogurt, tuna, fiber one bars, bran muffins, and whatever else I want to eat. I do limit bread tho as it sits hard in my stomach and causes me to bloat!
So that's it in a nut shell:) I will post more updates as they happen. Thanks for reading and I love reading your comments:)

Now whats in the bin?
Rice as filler to look like white sand, wood gold coins, parrots, red X marks the spot, blue anchor, foam sponge shapes, palm trees, treasure chest, homemade Jolly Rodger flag and a fake pearl bracelet. I might add some silver dollars to the bin later
