Weight Watchers Wednesday


So I have fallen off of the Weight Watchers wagon. I've been snowed in and haven't been to a meeting in three weeks...three weeks. Unfortunately I am one of those people that have to go to the meetings to succeed. I need motivation other than wobbly bits I suppose.
So I am going to start doing Weight Watcher Wednesdays! Hopefully this will give me the motivation that I need to succeed again.
So without further ado my first Weight Watcher Wednesday recipe! Enjoy this is super yummy! Hope y'all love it as much as I do.
