I have a little secret. I didn’t want to share it because I’m actually a little embarrassed by it. I’m not embarrassed that I’m doing it, just embarrassed because I’ve already failed so many times. I keep trying and failing and that is not something that I like to admit. But, because I want to log it here for future reference, and because I maybe need a little encouragement I’m going to spill it.
On Monday I started Weight Watchers again. So today is only the fifth day but so far I have done really well. I’ve done better this week than all of my previous attempts (except for the first go-round when I lost 35 pounds). I splurged once on Tuesday because it was a co-worker’s birthday and I had to help her celebrate by indulging in a piece of chocolate fudge cake.
The weekends are always the hardest for me because it is much more tempting to eat out than to cook a healthy meal at home. This weekend will be particularly hard because of that big event known as the Super Bowl. We’re having a few people over to watch the game and snacks are pretty much a mandatory thing. We’re keeping it fairly healthy (and simple) by having cold cut sandwiches and a veggie tray with low fat ranch dip. However, I am also making one of my favorite party dishes, Chicken Lip Dip. It may sound gross but it is actually delicious. A friend of mine brought this to Hubby’s birthday party back in September and it has been one of my favorites ever since. And, since I’m feeling generous, I thought I would share the recipe with you.
You can serve this with tortilla chips or, my personal favorite, slices of pita bread.
*You can substitute low fat versions of all of these and it still tastes great!
