Week 1 Kick Start Results & Photo Recap

by DanicasDaily on December 17, 2009

Happy Thursday all!  Ok, so I am a day late and a dollar short (it’s all that Christmas Shopping & Celebrating) :D But, I owe you all officially TWO days of recaps (not counting the vacation finale lol) now. 

I finished off my Weight Watchers Kick Start week and lost .6 lbs (it’s down, but, I so think I earned more LOL).  So there was a little chocolate celebration that happened yesterday. 

I am going to continue the philosophy this week with 1 party exception.  The goal is to have around 3-5 pts for breakfast, 5-7 pts for lunch, 1 or 2 2-3 pt snacks and 8-10 pts for dinner all while getting in ALL your HEALTHY GUIDELINES.  You make it all work within your point range and for those following along check out page 41 on your Week 1 book.

My GOAL for this post is to mainly do a picture recap with very little words at all ~ think I can do it?!  You all just might have to make a few guesses on what I ate :)….so here it goes!

Vanilla 0% Greek Chobani ~ YUM!

Seems so boring to not tell my story as I go, no?! Do the pictures say it all? Eh, maybe….anyway – it works for a FAST post since I chose to hang out with The Husband watching Pelham 123 last night instead of blogging.  That movie is pretty good and intense – LOVED it!

my GOSH what adorable little shortbread men! I couldn’t stop at 1 serving that’s FOR SURE!!!! The hawaiian roll you got also looks amazing!!!

So would you mind telling me more about the WW kick start program? Are you doing the online program by itself? Is it better than losing weight without the program…at least so far? hehehe

4 Tay December 17, 2009 at 11:43 am

Congrats on your weight loss this past week!! So happy for you :-) And good luck with week 2!

Oh my gosh – that mini shortbread man looks so good. I’d want him to be a soft cookie but he’s probably hard. You make me want to eat well and count my cals again. Are all of chobanis 0%?

8 Naomi (onefitfoodie) December 17, 2009 at 3:50 pm

vanilla chob’s is so great!! I love jazzing it up with some fun mix ins like granola or dried fruit!

the snack plate of smoked turkey, cheese and carrots is awesome! I love the combo of turkey and cheese!

13 katie December 17, 2009 at 9:11 pm

WOW that salad looks awesome! actually all your eats do!

14 DanicasDaily December 18, 2009 at 10:22 am

N.D ~ No, not all of them are 0%, but, the ones I’ve seen are 0% or 2% still not bad. The gingerbread mad is actually soft – SO GOOD, I have to give them away or I’d eat the entire family :D

15 DanicasDaily December 18, 2009 at 10:24 am

Michelle~ Actually, I do the entire Weight Watcher Program no matter what challenge I am working. I fit it into my points and focus on clean foods. The Kick Start is just where they help people get used to making healthy choices. Weight Watchers provides a list of meals you can pick from and they even provide the shopping list and recipes if you like too. Each meal has a set points limit so you can mix it up as long as you stay within your points. I actually LOVE the meetings and go every week even though I may not always blog about it. With the meetings (and monthly pass) you get access to everything online as well for FREE so it’s a best of both worlds. I highly recommend the program. Feel free to email me with any questions or what not, I’d be glad to answer them if I can.

16 DanicasDaily December 18, 2009 at 10:28 am

Ok all ~ I will make sure that I post the Chicken Parmesan Recipe soon. I may have to recreate since I didn’t take step by step photos (too hungry and messy :D)

Thanks for all the nice compliments – LOVE you all!
