Weight Watcher Foodies: Independence! July 2016

The Dairy Queen | Jul 1, 201606:01 AM     65

WW 'Hounds--can you believe it? We are half-way through 2016! And I have to say, I can't think of a better theme for the second half of the year for me than independence. Soon I'll be free of this job that's been weighing me down for so long, and I hope to free myself of some extra pounds, too. (Also, apparently, freedom from the restrictions of proper spelling, judging by the now-corrected typo in the subject of this post...ha) How about you? What's your theme for 2016?

Eaten anything delicious lately? Tried anything new that's working for you? Have a challenge coming up and need a plan? Need some inspiration?

Come on in and tell us all about it! Newbies welcome, encouraged, even! Oldbies, too, of course! And, of course, it doesn't matter to us whether you are actually following WW or just trying to eat (and drink!) more mindfully.
