Yummo!!

Nathan and I finally decided that it is high time for us to get our eating habits under control. After all we are 30 now and health seems to be more of a concern.

Of course it could have something to do with the fact that I had a baby 23 months ago (I put it months because that feels like less than years) and I am STILL hanging on to baby weight.

Or what about the fact that my sister had a baby 8 months ago and looks like this...


My parents have pool now so I know I will be spending lots of my summer in one of these...


Both Nathan and I are heading to Africa this summer and need to be in good enough shape to carry out the mission God has called us to.


So we decided on Weight Watchers. We have done it before and had great success. While the thought of not cringing when I put on my swimsuit sounded appealing to me I wasn't so sure I could give up my foodie ways. I love food and good food at that. I love sweets and carbs and foods that are full of flavor. Thankfully I found Gina's Skinny Recipes blog and I have not had to give up too many of my foodie ways. Just look at what we have had to eat the last two nights...

Asian Glazed Drumsticks with brown fried rice



Or how about Skinless chicken thighs with shallots in red wine vinegar
I seriously wanted to lick my plate!!


And even a little dessert...

Banana fritters with ice cream...so yummy!

With food like this I think we might actually be able to stick to this lifestyle change!!

Next up...Honey pecan salmon and chocolate strawberry crepes!
