Becoming Less...Pity Parties

I lost a pound...woo hoo. What is strange is...I am exactly back to where I was a couple of
weeks ago when I lost the most. I mean to the tenth!

Pity parties? Ever thrown one...maybe two...Oh heck...I've thrown to many to count in
my life time. I don't get what I want...I don't think something is fair or whatever & I start
sending out the invitations to Me....Myself & I. Yep...I only invite them because they
are the only ones that want to come & I know they will side with me.

I park myself in that spot & want to stay there, but you know...a party of one...isn't
that fun. It usually leaves me more empty.

I have wrestled so much these past few weeks with overeating. I haven't fully
relied on God to fill me up & stop before I am stuffed. I feel like I am seeing
progress. Though...I almost gave up. I almost's not gonna work. The
weight lose has been slow & at times it has totally discouraged me. I wanted to
buy a box of Ding Dongs & have a pity party with a Dr. Pepper to wash it down.
But I didn't. I asked God to fill me. I prayed for strength this battle to overcome
my weakness. Crave Him...not things of this world. Crave His word to fill my
heart. When I am weak...He is strong.

I am back to counting my points & tracking them. WOW. It works...imagine that!
DUH!! Not Gonna Have a PITY PARTY & give up. I mentioned a couple of
weeks ago that I was going to start posting recipes & sharing their points.

Here is one  I love!!!
WW Chicken Cacciatore  (5pts/1 cup serving)
Now I don't eat it with noodles to save on Points...but you can. I also didn't make it in
the crockpot. I just put it on the stove because I was in a hurry that day. But if you
love tomato sauce & will love it. I made it for my lunches & had it
all week because it's easy to pack to take to work. You can add more veggies too.

1 lb chicken breast (I used 2 breast) Chopped
1 c fresh or canned mushrooms sliced
1 c. fresh sliced green peppers
1 c. fresh sliced onion
1 medium garlic clove minced
1 Tbsp. canned Tomato paste ( I freeze the rest of the can & use it again)
14 1/2 oz can crushed tomatoes, fire roasted or regular
1/4 c. dry red wine ( didn't use this, I just put in a chicken bullion cube for taste)
3/4 tsp. dried oregano crushed
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

You can place all of the ingredients in a crockpot for 6 to 8  hours. I just made it
in a pot on the stove & set it on low for about 30 to 45 minutes while I cleaned my house!

So there ya go. Maybe I will start posting the recipe on a different day if I think about it.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Thanks for the recipe! Sounds yummy!

  2. Oh, I almost quit a few times already!! Frustrating to not lose, lose just a little or *gasp* gain a little. After a bad week, I usually have a GOOD week. Even my bad weeks, though, I'm still making different choices than I would have 5 months ago ~1.5 brownies instead of 3~. Hang in there, girl, it's a journey. I'm proud of you!!


I love Comments!! If you have something to say...Say it...but have the guts to say who you are at least! Anonymous comments get trashed!
