I have been trying to come up with some snack ideas lately that will keep me in WW points plus range and taste good. One of my favorite things is popcorn and I recently found in a magazine these tasty sounding ideas:
 Start with 3 cups air-popped pop car in a bowl and mix in any of these ingredients, cover bowl and shake to mix:
1.  Cheesy Ranch Popcorn: 5 sprays butter-flavor spray, 1/2 tsp dry ranch salad dressing mix, 1/4 cup goldfish crackers  WWpoints+ 5
2.. Southwest Spicy Popcorn: 5 sprays butter-flavored spray, 1/8 tsp each garlic powder, ground cumin and chili powder; 1/4 cup pretzels; 1 Tbsp pumpkin seeds   WWpoints+ 6
3.  Tutti-Frutti Popcorn: 2 Tbsp yogurt covered raisins, 2 Tbsp mixed dried fruit bits  WWpoints+6
4.  Monster Cookie Popcorn: 2 Tbsp low-fat granola, 2 Tbsp raisins, 2 tsp M and M's chocalate candy  WW points+ 7
5.  S'mores Popcorn: 1/2 cup honey graham cereal, 2 Tbsp mini marshmellows, 1 Tbsp mini choc chip morsels WW points+ 7

I have been reading where everyone is making goals for themselves to try and help push and motivate to continue to exercise and eat healthy every day. Hey, I'm on board. For the month of March it is my goal to get into OnederLand, I need 8 lbs to do it so I am going to work hard EVERY SINGLE DAY to make this goal happen. I am losing weight extremely slow, but I realize it is better to lose slow than to not lose at all, so get ready March, I am fixing to pour it on and see what happens...


  1. Spicing up popcorn is a good idea! That Smore one sounds so good.

  2. Wow only 8lbs to the big 1...thats brilliant...well done you.
    I agree settling a goal is really good for the inspiration.
    Well Done
