Weigh-In Wednesday…

I lost a pound! I lost a pound! Did I tell you, I lost a pound?

I was very geeked to see a lower number–finally 175.6. This week I focused on water, not stuffing my face, resisting the dark chocolate M & M’s at work (getting a few every other time I walked past them, not every time), and drinking high-fiber berry smoothies in the morning. Truly, the weeks I make the smoothies, I tend to lose. So obviously, this is something I need to keep doing!

Since you asked…….

Breakfast: Yogurt smoothies

I recently discovered that you can make a fantastic smoothie with plain yogurt. You read correctly—plain. Not vanilla, but the almost sour tasting plain yogurt. Trader Joe’s makes a version with 3g of fiber per 1 cup of yogurt, which is a bonus. You may want to experiment with the exact amounts for your perfect smoothie—I chose these amounts for easy point counting.

½ c. plain ff yogurt (1pt)
1 1/2 c. assorted berries (1pt)
½ c. vanilla soy milk or regular skim milk (1pt)
A sprinkle of flaxseeds, if desired

Ice, if desired

Blend all ingredients until smooth. 3 PTs, it’s also a CORE recipe, I believe.

  1. I would love to see a recipe for the smoothies as well! Congratulations, I am thrilled for you. This is a hard effort, but seeing that lower number on the scale is pretty uplifting.

  2. Way to go! Congratulations!!

    I don’t know what it is exactly about fiber and yogurt, but the combination is definitely a weight loss revelation! I have a friend who did absolutely NOTHING with her diet or lifestyle other than add a daily cup of bran with yogurt glugged on top — and she lost about 30 lbs at a consistent rate of about 2 pounds a week!! You’d think it’d be easier to incorporate that to my lifestyle…
