  1. Proud of you!!! Keep up the good work. I always try to stick to plan for breakfast and lunch and snack and then indulge at dinner if it's a special event. I just weighed in for December -- that is 6 months of staying within 2 lbs of my goal weight. WW works!!!! :) Merry merry, Erin!!!

  2. Wow, good for you...especially this time of year! I like the rest of the world started my diet on Jan. 1st! I hope you continue to post your recipes and WW's very inspiring!
