Weight Watchers: Shrimp Zucchini

24 Jan

It has been a while since I posted a new recipe. I always think about making something new and sharing it on my blog, but I have been stuck on all my favorites lately. Since I started Weight Watchers last week I have been exploring new healthier ways of eating. Tonight before I left the office I came across the most interesting recipe on the WW website and I just had to try it.  I have never cooked with zucchini so I thought it was a little strange that I was craving it.


1 zucchini – slice
1 pound of uncooked shrimp – I used frozen, peeled.
1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 tsp of dried oregano
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup of water
(I add some wheat pasta)


Saute sliced zucchini in a turn of olive oil. Cook both sides 2 minutes on high.  Once lightly browned remove and set to the side.
Saute shrimp for 1-2 minutes. Add tomatoes, oregano, salt&pepper and saute for another minute or two.
Pour in water and add garlic. Cook for another few minutes until everything is cooked and softened.
Finally, add zucchini and stir ingredients all together and turn off heat.

After we finished eating  husband gave me a 10 star rating and I said “I would pay $50 for that dinner” ha. Let me know if you get a chance to try this recipe! It is one that I will revisit soon. ( I have an extra zucchini and lot of shrimp in the freezer)

Weight Watchers!

9 Jan

It is a a new year and today I joined Weight Watchers Online.

This is my second time on the program. 2.5 years ago – 6 months before our wedding I joined and lost about 16 pounds. I am by no means “fat” but you know a girls need to look good on her wedding day!

Well, over the past few years I have let a pound here and there hang around. My jeans fit a little bit tighter and I would wear a sweatshirt all the time if I could. It has been long enough and I decided that the WW online offer right now was to good to pass up! (no sign up fee and 18 a month)

I am mostly joining to get back on track of eating healthy, tracking portions, and increase exercising each week AND to feel better about my self!

I plan to share my journey and hope to inspire others to get healthy with me! I have done it before and it really does work!

Have you every joined WW or currently on the program? Please share your experience!!
