Losing Weight is Easy with a Simple Start…

I was given a free one month subscription to Weight Watchers to try their new #SimpleStart plan and write about my experience.Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative, are my own, as always.

“Happiness is a choice. Why not be happy all the time? Being unhappy doesn’t get you anywhere.” – Jerry Bruckner If you’ve ever met me in real life, know me just  from social media, or have read more than a couple of posts on this site, then you’ve probably noticed that I’m one of those annoyingly optimistic “glass is half full” type of people. I don’t let obstacles get me down or discouraged, I use them as motivation for finding new solutions to challenges. I haven’t always been this way, but since becoming a mom a few years ago, I swear I was changed with some type of “post-partum optimism” or something. {So far as I know, that’s not a real thing. But a post describing my experience with it is coming up one of these days… :)} And, as I get started with the new adventures of 2014, I’ve been excited to see how small changes are adding up to make me feel even happier, healthier, and more in balance {my word of the year.}

Super healthy, super loaded, stuffed baked potato recipe from weight watchers

One big change already this year has been diving into the Simple Start plan from Weight Watchers. I’ve talked about it a TON the past two weeks, as I’ve followed this plan to jump-start my goals of getting healthier – from sharing super yummy recipes ideas like this Stuffed Baked Potato, to the awesome motivational quotes I tweet out after seeing them each day when I log in – I’ve definitely shared a million updates on my personal Facebook and Instagram encouraging my friends to try this out too. It’s pretty clear that I’m a believer. {Not to be confused with the term “Belieber“, which I am emphatically not. Lol.} And I’ve been really excited to see how many of my friends have now joined me in the Simple Start plan too!

Partial #SimpleStart Grocery Shopping List

If you’ve either – A.) Fallen off of the New Year weight loss resolution wagon, 2.) Never got on that wagon, or 3.) Are just looking for a wagon to jump on for guidance and support – then take a minute, right now, to sign up for the Weight Watchers Simple Start app. It’s totally free. It’s got some seriously awesome recipes – as a veggie-hater, they’ve inspired even me to try new things. Do it. I dare ya. And what do you have to lose, besides a few pounds? :) And they just make it so, well, SIMPLE. You get a shopping list you can print out or access right on your phone, like the one above. The recipes are totally uncomplicated and can be put together quickly. Everything you need to get your eating habits on track is right there in the free app!

This is another of the totally crazy-delicious recipes you’ll find on the app – It’s the Weight Watchers Vegetable Soup. And, it’s so healthy that you even get to pair it with another dish too – you can have a big bowl of it along with a grilled tomato & cheese, or a loaded baked potato. I’ve been making it from the recipe on the app, which makes one generous serving. But I love it SO much, I’m going to make it in a big batch in the crockpot to have all week long. It’s that good.

So – even though I’m at the end of my two weeks on the #SimpleStart plan, I’ll definitely still be using the recipes and shopping list to help plan my meals. And, I’m going to pay for a few more months on the Weight Watchers plan, because I have totally fallen in love with the site and tools there, in addition to the free app. If you want to learn more, check out the links below to connect with Weight Watchers too!
