First Post!

I started this blog to show people that you can eat good food and lose weight. I'm a twenty-eight-year-old single woman who has been working on getting herself in shape since 1/1/2009. I just can't rely on the typical diet most dieters use that consists of boring, bland meals such as:
  • oatmeal for breakfast
  • grilled chicken salad for lunch
  • fish and steamed broccoli for dinner
  • nuts and fruit for snacks

I am going to use this blog to detail my journey on weight watchers, including my successes, failures, and struggles. I hope to offer encouragement, tips, advice, great diet products, and great recipes for my readers!

I want to share this burrito recipe with you before I sign off. The recipe does make a lot, but they are only 4 points apiece!

Beef Bean Burritos


  • 1 lb. 4% fat ground beef
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

  • 4 oz. canned diced green chile peppers
  • 15.5 oz. canned black beans
  • 15 oz. canned chili without beans
  • 10.75 oz. condensed tomato soup
  • 14 oz. low calorie red enchilada sauce

  • 2 cups lettuce
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 8 oz. shredded 2% milk Mexican-style cheese

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9x13 inch casserole dish.

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the chili, tomato soup, and enchilada sauce. Stir and heat over medium-low until heated through.
