WW Recap...

Hi guys!! It's been about 2 weeks since I last talked about my weight and I am still having a hard time logging my food. Why is it that I can't make myself do something so easy as track my food?? One day I am going to get back on track with using my WW app but luckily I still use everything I know about WW daily. My current weight is 145, I am down 1.8 pounds in the last 2 weeks to bring my total loss to 31 pounds! Sometimes I don't think about how proud I should be until I get the new Weight Watchers Magazine and I see that they featured someone who lost 31 pounds. I love that magazine and that was a great reminder for me to take a minute and celebrate how far I have come in a little over a year!

Last night I threw together a soup with things I had in my fridge and if I had known how yummy it would turn out I would have taken pictures along the way! So instead you get a slightly messy mid-meal picture! I have to share this recipe with you all and I don't have the points calculated out for WW but I used ingredients I know that follow the plan.
Creamy White Cheddar and Cauliflower Soup!
Serves about 4, 1 1/2 cup portions

Need!
1 head cauliflower rough chopped
1 carrot diced
1 celery stalk chopped
1 small yellow onion
1 teaspoon fresh Thyme, chopped
3 cups reduced sodium chicken stalk
1/2 cup Fat Free Half and Half
1/2 cup Aged White Cheddar
2 Teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
Salt and Pepper
1 pad of butter

How!
* Toss cauliflower and carrot in EVOO, sprinkle with salt, pepper and throw onto cookie sheet
* Roast veggies on 400 for 15 minutes (just enough to get a little depth of flavor)
* Sautee onion and celery in butter, add cauliflower and carrot after about 5minutes and continue to sauté for another 5 minutes
* Pour in your 3 cups stock, or enough to cover all veggies and then simmer for about 10 minutes or until all veggies are tender
* Use an immersion blender (or pour into blender) and blend until creamy
* Add Half & Half, Cheddar, Thyme, Salt and Pepper
* Once heated thru, serve!!!! I had mine with some little toast points.

Enjoy Friends!!!!

Whoot whoot, way to go. One way I put my weight in perspective that I lost, next time you have some time and are at the grocery store, stack up 5 lb bags of rice......it really will put it in perspective for you. this soup sounds super yummy as well.

Something made me click on "Slimdown" in your header. I must have missed this post! 31 pounds is awesome!! No wonder you look so fantastic. Keep at it. Even if you are not tracking you have built the healthy eating habits. That will keep your losses going. I have had a week where I lost .2 but, it was still a loss in my book! :)
