If you are starting or restarting your weight loss journey, know that you aren’t alone.  I have restarted after many months and I am excited about what this year will bring (hello 10lbs lost so far). 

Remember that I created a series for the blog to help you if you are debating about joining Weight Watchers.  

It’s called Getting Started and will help you with the plan, and resources to help you be as successful as you should be.

I will be saving myself so much money by cooking this myself (most cooking done on one sheet pan) and it’s so freaking easy.
