Finally a pound down


Why is it that it takes very little time to gain a pound but forever to take it off!!!  I went up a pound about two weeks ago and finally at today's weigh in it was gone.  Good riddance.  I sometimes feel like I am running in circles on the scale.  It was nice when I had a lot of weight to lose and those numbers kept right on rolling by but now it is much slower. 

So I've just been working and not getting too worked up about that pound.  I want to use the scale to stay accountable but not obsessive about my weight.  Been there done that, not going back.  I could easily let myself get wrapped up in that number and not be healthy about it. 

I did make an awesome weight watchers chicken stroganoff this week.  I sent the leftovers with my mom to work for her to share with a friend.  They both really enjoyed it as well.  It is real simple and I just left it all day in the crock pot.  I am all about the crock.  I leave around 7am for work and don't get back home until late in the evening. I love recipes that can be left all day and require little prep to get to the table.

1 lb boneless chicken breasts
1 or 2 cans of 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup
1 pkg. Lipton onion soup mix
16oz container of fat free sour cream
Leave it all in the crock pot on low for 6 hours
I then shredded the chicken mixture and poured it over No Yolk noodles.



  1. I wish you could that 1 poundin one day just like you gain it one.
    I like the recipe.
    Congrats on the loss!


  2. Congratulations on the weight gain and on staying strong! I think it is great that you plan meals and use your crock pot - that is such a great strategy.
