Here is something I love about Weight Watchers: I can still eat cake! Now, I completely agree from a nutritional standpoint that the majority of my points need to go to lean meats, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. I also agree that my extra points are best used for high point healthy fats like avocado and almonds. At the same time, I have been on diets that never, ever allowed me to splurge. I was miserable and grouchy and the diets didn't last. Weight Watchers is a lifestyle, and it is a realistic one. Which means, if I understand how to balance out my eating, I can still have my favorite high fat, high sugar foods every now and then.
Last week was Alanna's birthday, and I didn't get to celebrate because I wasn't feeling well. She came by today with a box from Julia's Homestyle Bakery containing the following items.
Chocolate Truffle Cake (for Alanna, my sister)
S'mores Pop (for me)
Oh, Julia's, I love you! But only every once in awhile;)
