Three Miles Down That Road Again!!

Well I have traveled 3 miles down that olde weight loss road again. Along the way I found out I had to go on a different med for my diabetics...The old one was just to strong for me, making me dizzy and really low blood sugar...and I did something stupid.....You know the really STUPID kind of thing...left my cell phone in my jeans and washed it....OH MY! OH MY! how could I of done that...Do have something to be happy about..LOST a nice ugly 5.9 pounds....Happy with that you betch you!!!!
Here is a desert I made for myself this week....I call it
Heaven Sent Key Lime Pie:
Serves 7 and is 2 WW Points

You will need a 4 serving size, sugar free, Lime Jello
2 containers of Weight Watchers Lime Pie Yogurt
1 tub (80z) of Cool Whip light or fat free
In a microwave safe measuring heat water on high for 45 seconds to 1-1/2 minutes, or until boiling. Whisk Jello until dissolved.
In a large bowl whisk together Jello mixture and the yogurt...
Fold in the Cool Whip..
You can just leave in that bowl or do like I do put 1/2 cup into sherbet dishes and cover with plastic wrap...Seems much nicer that way and then I am not tempted to eat too much...
Refrigerate at least 4 hours or until set..

Here was my supper for tonight: I had Mexican Food!
Jicama Slaw:
1 WW points
1 medium jicama
2 cups angel hair cole slaw
1-11oz can mandarin orange segments, drained, reserve 1/4 cup
1/4 cup light Mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon fajita seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro leaves chopped.
Grate the jicama into a large bowl, add the cole slaw and mandarin oranges: Set aside
In a small bowl, whisk together reserved mandarin juice, mayonnaise, fajita seasoning and salt and pepper.
Pour dressing over jicama mixture. Toss to mix thoroughly. Top with cilantro.
Serve immediately...

Serves 6 WW Points 5
1 roasted chicken (2 lbs)
12 fat free flour tortillas
2 cups low fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup mild green chili salsa
1 cup mild red chili salsa
Preheat over to 350%
Spray oven proff dish with cooking spray.
Remove chicken from the bones and shred. (I buy a roasted chicken from the grocery store)
Lay 1 or 2 tortillas in bottom of baking dish, overlaying slightly.
Layer tortillas with chicken, cheese and salsas. Repeat layers till dish is full ending with cheese and the 2 salsas.
Bake 25 minutes or till bubbly and hot.
For serving top with some toppings, such as fat free sour cream, sliced green onions, salsa, sliced avocado or cilantro...

Will post some more on weight management and loss tomorrow....

Way to go Sue! I meant with the weight loss, not the cell phone ;)
