Saturday Weigh in

Well I should be happy, but am not. I went to my weigh in. I did lose weight, but I was hoping to break the 10 pound mark. Close but no cigar. I lost 1.2 lbs, and down to 155.4. I did reach the 5% of my weight goal. So I guess I should be celebrating.

I guess I am upset because I stayed away from the chocolate. Thanks to Anna. I found the Reese's cups on my shelf. Oh my word. The kids were driving me crazy at school and it was just so tempting. So Anna came by to do an intervention for me. I was so close to having the chocolate and peanut butter. Oh my word. I just can't describe how I wanted that peanut butter.

I did try a new recipe this week. A great one. It was Egg Drop Soup.

4 cups of reduced sodium chicken broth
3 tbsp. cornstarch
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp. rice wine vinegar
1 1/3 c thawed frozen peas

1. Bring broth to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Whisk cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water in a small cup until smooth;
whisk cornstarch mixture into brothe . Simmer until soup thickens
slightly, about 2 minutes .Reduce heat untile broth barely simmers. Slowly
drizzle eggs into soup while stirring quickly in circular motion. Cook for 1 minut and remove from heat. Stir in vinegar.

2. Meanwhile, heat peas according to package direction and divide evenly into 4
bowls. Ladle soup over peas.

This is 3 points plus per serving. You can add for garnish chopped fresh cilantro, and drizzle a little low sodium soy sauce.

I definitely recommend this soup. I am so glad I found it through a friends weight watchers cookbook.
