My good friend convinced me that we NEEDED to join Weight Watchers together last week.  It was on sale and she had a go results with them before and though I had an easy time by myself after Cat I am struggling now after that medication weight gain I had last year and really could use the help. So I will be back to blogging at least sporadically in December with all the fantastic things I am making to stop myself from snacking ( I have started a sweater) and the fun recipes I have cobbled together to feed my kids that are still healthy and low points for me.
