John and I have both joined Weight Watchers. We started the program today. John's doctor told him to lose 40 pounds, and I could stand to lose a lot more then that, so we're doing it together. I bought out HEB the other day with enough staples to have around so that we can be successful. I know I have to think about this as a long range, new eating habits plan.
Tonight I made a really delicious meal called "Garlic Basil Shrimp." It was quite good! I added a few extra zero point vegetables (some of our green peppers, a handful of fresh spinach and a zucchini I brought in tonight from the garden) to it so that it would be a bit more filling for John. I think you could add just about any veggies you have around. We really liked it. Only 4 points per serving, too. Over 1/2 cup of rice, it made a nice filling meal.
