Thank You So Very Much For Your Encouragement
Thank you so very much.
I am diabetic type 2. The days that I chant "no sugar" to myself are the days my sugar stays low and I get creative with food.
It works, for now! As does your encouragement. You know that a human is not just an eating machine.
OMG - The Muesli Recipe You Shared Is Delicious!
Hi Martha - OMG, I made your muesli recipe and ate some (warm) for breakfast... it's DELICIOUS!!
A Huge Thank You For Your Emails
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your email list and the tip about Kristen's meal plans at Slender Kitchen.
Everything I have tried is fantastic! My family is loving the tastes and variety, and I love the weekly planning and grocery list simplicity.
I am so thrilled with all the WW support I find in the universe!!
The One Sheet Pan Dinners Have Been Life Savers For My Family!
The one sheet pan dinners have been life savers for my family!
We have tried the Rosemary Chicken with Potatoes and the Chicken Fajitas.
Tonight we are going to try the Chicken Parmesan with Zucchini, and we have on our list to try the Shrimp with Broccoli.
Each evening my husband and I chop the veggies and assemble everything on the cookie sheet and in 30 minutes we have a super yummy dinner!
We love the smell of the garlic and herbs as it is cooking.
In the past we have done a lot of frozen food because we are exhausted and in a hurry.
But now, in about the same time, we can make a healthy and very satisfying meal.
Thank you so much!!!
Thanks Again For Your Insights and Your Inspirations
Hi Martha! You are so welcome! I am a weight Watcher member signed up in May of this year, with the online version and then upgraded to meetings before my three month time was up and getting ready to switch over to standard payments. So glad I did, I do enjoy the meetings and the support.
While scrolling through some youtube videos about weight watchers simply filling plan and smart points users, I seem to remember coming across one of yours. So I had to put in a search for simply nourish and found your site. I have been back and foutth on the both sides of the plans.
Today I am back with working with the Simply Filling technique again.
And you gave me some inspiration to work on getting a weight loss blog going. That is what I am working on now.
My big goal is to get to Weight Watchers Lifetime Membership.
Well thanks again for your insights and your inspirations.
PS. Love the ebook you sent. Thanks!!
Thank You For The Awesome Recipes
Hi Martha - Just a quick note to say Thank You for the awesome recipes. I made the WW Baked Chicken Parmesan. I cut in half for the two of us - Perfect!
My husband is really not a tomato and basil guy, but he really like this. It was quick and easy too. Thanks again!
The Best By Far
Thank you Martha!
These words of encouragement were just what I needed to hear and the best by far!!
Thanks For All You Do For Us!
You are so right! I attended my first WW meeting in 1965 or 1966. I had many cookbooks from that era. I was an on/off dieter, with emphasis on diet for many years. I earned Lifetime (first time) around 1977 and re-earned it in 2001.
I have been wrestling with 10 pounds this past year, but this current journey to take it off is probably the best one as I am making changes that I can live with for the rest of my life. I am finding the newer emphasis of beyond the scale to be helpful.
Thanks for all you do for us!
I Feel I Can Get Back On Track With Your Email Tips & Suggestions
Hi Martha - I'm a Lifetime Weight Watchers member but haven't been able to attend their meetings for about five years (due to time restraints) and unfortunately, have gained ten pounds over my goal weight.
I was so happy to hear from you and feel I can get back on track with your email tips and suggestions. Thank you.
Thank You So Much For All You Do - Your Meal Plan Has Really Helped Me Keep On Track
Martha, Thank you so much for all you do! I look forward everyday to see your e-mail.
Your recipes have really helped me and my husband so much. My husband is diabetic and he loves your recipes also. I can no longer afford Weight Watchers and your meal plan has really helped me to keep on track.
I bought all your ecookbooks and have them in a binder by my chair and plan our meals for the week.
Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!
I Never Knew How To Be Consistent With A Diet - Thank You For Making This A Little Easier
Hi Martha - I am so appreciative of the emails you send me. I never knew how to be consistent with a diet - Thank you for making it a little easier!
Thank You For Taking The Time, Each Week, To Make A Meal Plan
Thank you for taking the time, each week, to make a meal plan. It makes it easy to follow and plan for the coming week, if you like. I use many of your recipes and I do plan weekly.
I made one of your slow cooker recipes this week, Ratatouille. My husband and I absolutely loved it !!! I will be making this one again. It does take a bit of prep time but is absolutely worth it in the end. I am a slow cooker lover, like you, and I don't work.
Have a Blessed week and keep up the great work. God Bless
Thanks For Making Cooking So Much More Easier!
Martha - I love your ideas. The nice thing about your recipes is that I'm able to change the number of servings which coincides with the ingredients. Thanks for making cooking so much more easier!
This Is The Most Helpful Thing I Have Come Across In A Long Time
Dear Martha - Thank you! This is very helpful. The most helpful things I have come across in a long time. All the stuff on this meal plan menu is stuff I actually can buy easily.
Thank You Martha For All The Delicious Looking Recipes
Thank you Martha for all the delicious looking recipes! I have only been back on Weight Watchers for a week today! I am having a hard time getting in all my points that count (if you can believe that).
I am looking forward to trying some of these recipes! They look delicious. I also enjoy getting your emails.
Thank you so much for doing this!
I'm Starting Your 28-Day Smart Start Today and Can't Wait
Thank you Martha! I have failed at this walk so many times before. I certainly needed this pep talk today.
I am starting your 28-Day Smart Start Challenge today and can't wait!
Thank you for sharing your wisdom.
I Am Loving Your Recipes - They Really Help Us Stay on Track
Hi Martha - I am loving your recipes. As a WW "Lifer" who has jumped the wagon too many times, they are really helping me (and my hubby) get back on track. Thanks so much!
All Your Recipes Are Delicious & So Easy To Prepare
After attending your slow cooker demonstration at Weight Watchers Arizona and trying a few of the recipes on your blog, I bought your slow cooker ebook bundle.
I've now tried several of the recipes and wanted to tell you they have all been delicious.
But beyond that, my favorite thing about them has been how easy they are to prepare!
I'm loving that - thanks so much!!
Just A Small Note To Say Thank You For Being The Person To Make It "Click"
Dear Martha, thank you for sharing this. It made a lot of sense to me and although I’ve likely read this advice over the years, something about your email and the link to recipes just "clicked" for me.
It's hard to describe, but I feel like it's going to be ok, there's lots of options and they are "ok" to have (in moderation, using the weekly pts).
We tend to associate sweet treats with "cheating" or "being bad", but the idea to purposely plan and prepare for them in the week, really freed me. You hit the proverbial nail on the head, deprivation is such a sneaky mental beast that hid in wait with most of my failed diet changes over the years.
This was just a small note to say thank you for being the person to make it "click". Your work and website are much appreciated.
Your Emails Are So Motivational
Thank you, Martha.
You are an amazing inspiration and your emails are such a motivation for me!!
Thanks For Doing All The Hard Work That Makes It Easier For Me To Get Dinner On The Table
Martha - I've made quite a few of your recipes and they've all been easy and delicious.
I just started back with Weight Watchers, so having the SmartPoints available with your recipes helps a lot!!
Thanks for doing all the hard work you do to make it easier for me to get dinner on the table!
Martha - You Are Instrumental in Keeping Me Conscious of My Eating Habits.
You are instrumental in keeping me conscious of my eating habits. Your quotes, encouragement and recipes are helping me. You are a gift.

I Was So Excited To Find Your WW Friendly Cookbooks
Thank you Martha! I've been a member of Weight Watchers since last June and have lost 35 pounds.

I Am Starting The Challenges In Your 28-Day Smart Start And They Are Great!
Hi Martha, Thank you for your 28-Day Smart Start Challenge. I am starting to do the challenges and they are great! I really find it helps me to focus on my weight loss journey. I go to my local WW Wellness Studio and my leader is fantastic!
I Love Your Emails, Keep Them Coming - Reached My Goal Today At WW!
Thank you Martha - I say to myself, I am not going to print your recipes anymore, next thing I know I have ten or twelve printed recipes in front of me.
I love your emails, keep them coming. Reached my goal today at WW. Thrilled with what I achieved in the last 18 months. Thanks again, Donna
I'm Sure You Don't Realize All The Good That You Do, But It Really Is Invaluable

My Biggest A-Ha Moment Was When I Joined Your 28-Smart Start
Martha - My biggest a-ha moment was when I joined your 28-Day Smart Start Weight Loss Challenge.
It helped me look at life and weight loss realistically!
Martha - Thank You So Much For All Your Tips & Recipes
Martha - Thank you so much for all your tips and recipes. I have had much success with this diet and I love the fact that there are recipes for one or two included. Sometimes it is not easy to break down a meal into 1-2 portions. You are awesome!!
I Wanted To Let You Know That You Were My 'A Ha' Moment Today
Hello Martha - I somehow came across your website as I was looking for yet another miracle diet and I watched your video on your WW journey. It brought me to years as you were actually telling my story, even the childhood "fat names".
After many many diets and also including re-joining WW more times than I can remember, I actually got to my goal weight . (I’ve always been about 30-40 overweight through my ups and downs of life). It was the best feeling ever and yet after I stood up in front of the group to tell my story and accept my "lifetime," I never went back.
This was in August of last year and I had just attended my 35th high school reunion and it never felt better. Well here I am 6 months later and 20 pounds heavier and so disappointed in myself.
I'm 53 and I still haven't made that connection.
I follow WW online but mostly just read comments at this point. I’m too embarrassed to go back as you mentioned.
I wanted to reach out to you and let you know that you have been my ah ha moment today.
This has to be a lifestyle for me because as I can see, the diet thing is not working for me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my note.
Seeing Your Daily Messages Keeps Me Feeling Accountable For One More Day
Martha, I started Weight Watchers in 1971 in Chicago and became both LifeTime and lifer along the way. I've tried all the programs, done meetings and online.
Somehow, seeing your daily messages keeps me feeling accountable for one more day. Even the repetitive messages serve an important purpose.
Thank you for being there.
I'm Getting So Much Inspiration From Your Slow Cooker Recipes
Hi Martha - I'm getting so much inspiration from your slow cooker recipes. My slow cooker is at least 30 years old and still working beautifully. It has one feature I love which is the ability to cook on HIGH for an hour, then auto switch to LOW. I haven't come across any new models that do this and my old friend is still cooking perfectly.
Which it did yesterday with your apple cranberry chicken and what a fabulous recipe that turned out to be. Amazing that so few ingredients can produce such wonderful results!
I served it with sweet potatoes and a saute of multi-colored peppers and spinach. Not only was the dinner absolutely delicious, but the plate was just bursting with color. Thank you for your inspiration and a really delicious dinner!!
Martha - Thank You So Much For Your Inspiration!
Martha - thank you so much for your inspiration! I've been doing Weight Watchers since October 1. Hitting some roadblocks cuz of health issues but pressing on.
I'm starting a 30 day gratitude accountability "experiment" with my massage therapist and thinking with all the reading I've been doing, that gratitude is a universal and Christian principle that helps us with many things we're dealing with in life.
I'm hoping gratitude will help me with my weight loss goals. I think it might be why God asks us to be thankful for everything; our food, the fact that we have an appetite and can eat, the fact that we can cook and even for the body he gave us.
Keep up the good work!
Thank You Martha - You Are A Blessing In My Life & On My Weight Loss Journey!

I'm So Excited Because I Know It's Working
Martha - I don't really struggle too much with meal planning, as long as I have chicken and vegetables in the house I'm good to go! I started the program 2 weeks ago and that previous week I did the weight loss on my own - but in all I have lost 8.6 pounds and I'm so excited because I know it's working. Thank you for sharing your food and recipes with me!
I'm So Glad I Signed Up For Your Newsletter
Hi Martha - Just a quick note to let you know I'm going to love a lot of your soup recipes, especially the ones containing beans, barley and split peas.
I'm 70 years young and I like old-fashioned cooking from scratch. I just need help in learning how to break down some of my regular meals to match the WW SmartPoints and still have some flavor.

Thank you so much!

Thanks For All The Recipes & WW Points
I'm really looking forward to trying Trisha Yearwood's Orzo Salad recipe.
I like orzo but have only used it in soup. This salad looks delicious.
Thanks for all the recipes and points info you provide - it helps make cooking and meals a lot easier and very tasty!!
I Appreciate All Your Emails - It's Like Having A Personal Trainer For Weight Loss
Hi Martha - I appreciate all your emails, it's like having a personal trainer for weight loss. I have lost weight a number of times overs the years. By saying that, you understand that I lost the pounds only to find them again, plus more.
In my mind, I know the value of healthy eating. In my heart, I love to eat all types of food, as well as try new recipes.
Planning is the best way to stay on track. I can do this, one meal at a time. I appreciate the great reminders in all your emails.
Your WW Friendly Meal Plans Is Just What I've Been Needing!
Hi Martha - I just wanted you to know that I bought your Month of Weight Watchers Friendly Meal Plans this morning and two hours later I made the frittata, which was delicious!!
This is just what I've been needing.
We tried Blue Apron, but they are high calorie. Your idea for this is fabulous!
I'll definitely tell my meetings about you.
Your Maple/Dijon Chicken Slow Cooker Recipes Is One Of The Best Slow Cook Recipes I Have Tried.

I've Made Several Skinny Slow Cooker Recipes & They Were Excellent

You Keep My Spirits Up And My Thought Process In The Moment

Your Message This Morning Was EXACTLY What I Needed

You Have Helped Me Sooooo Much
Martha, you are awesome! You have helped me soooooo much.
I have been going to Weight Watchers for 4 weeks now and I have lost 14 pounds. I have learned how to eat veggies and fruit.
Thanks a bunch!!
Thanks So Much For Your Inspiring Recipes and Emails!
Hi Martha - I do not eat candy or sweets, so I am not afraid of Halloween. Our Thanksgiving has gone past (Canada) and Christmas will be plenty of chicken and veggies.
I feel I have learned so much about the value of food from your wonderful recipes and WW. I realize you will never know it all, but I think I have somewhat of a handle on it now.
I am down 49 pounds since January this year and I've never felt better. Thank you so much for your inspiring recipes and emails. I look forward to each and every one.
I've Made The Autumn Apple Chicken Twice Now And Everyone Loves It

Thank You For All You Do To Help Folks Like Me Stay Motivated
Good morning Martha!
Just wanted to say "thank you" for all you do to help folks like me stay motivated to live a healthier life.
I am enjoying my eCookbooks and any day now will restart the 28-Day Smart Start Weight Loss Challenge. Right now I am doing the "Mindless Eating" book club.
Right now my life is challenging and am putting myself on the "back burner" but I do make the time to read your emails, these are my "Me Time" indulgence.
Thank you very much for all you do! Be well!
PS: two ideas for you: 1. an ebook of easy meals for Seniors. 2. an ebook of a very simple, starter yoga.
Sharing Your Site With My Sister
Martha, I just wanted you to know that I'm sharing this with my sister.

Everything tastes so good and I have been so much happier now that everyone in my household doesn't have to feel deprived because I'm watching my weight. I did just discover the beauty of the instant pot, so any and all of your ideas are welcome. Thank you!
Just Wanted To Say How Awesome Your Newsletter And Recipes Are!
Martha - I just wanted to say how awesome your newsletter and recipes are. I always look forward to seeing what coming up next. One recipe brought a tear... Skinny Slow Cooker Porcupine Meatballs as it was a family favorite of my partners and we haven't had them in a decade - since her mom died after living 10 years with Alzheimers.
We will be trying them this week... just for the delicious memory. I know she didn't use a slow cooker, but it's the same recipe for sure. Thanks so much!
Thank You - I Am Finally Seeing Results Thru Your Recipes & My WW Program
Hi Martha! Thank you for all of the information you have shared with me the last many months. I am finally seeing results thru your recipes and my Weight Watchers program. Your recipes and suggestions have helped me a lot.
Thank You For Sharing Profound Wisdom
Martha, Thank you for sharing profound wisdom. I am a writer. I just began my career as a writer six months ago. I am working on a memoir. There will end up being two memoirs ... one about my childhood (abuse I endured at my father's hand) and one about my adulthood (how I was set up to become a victim by the way I was raised and how I overcame that victim status). I hope to be a beacon of hope to women who have struggled with abuse, both as a child and later as an adult.
Your email about change resonates with me. No one in my family ever encouraged me to develop and use my talents. It has taken me most of my adult life to get to this point. I embrace my talent and write every day with an eye toward being published. A book is a big undertaking and will take the better part of a year.
I am changing also by taking off the 70 lbs I have to lose. I have lost four of the five pounds I had gained back. I am determined to weigh 125 lbs. again and to feel really good about myself.
Thank you for your kindness; I get a lot out of your emails. I am making the sausage and peppers today. It has another hour to go before it is ready. I look forward to it. It smells yummy.
You Made Such A Difference In My WW Journey
Thank you, my friend. You made such a difference in my WW journey and I really appreciate your help.
Thanks For All Your Hard Work - I Love Your Recipes!
Hi Martha - Thanks for all your hard work! I love your recipes! I share them with my local WW group and everyone I can. Thank you for including gluten-free.
I Love Your Recipes And Your Encouragement
Hi Martha - I love your recipes and your encouragement. My husband and I are doing this together. So far, he has lost 20 pounds and I have lost just over 10. Thank you!
I Love Being Able To Share Good Food With Friends
Martha - I brought the lightened version of the Orzo Salad to my vegetarian book club. The member who always has amazing dishes to share immediately emailed me for the recipe. I love being able to share good food with friends; that makes this really feel like a lifestyle change rather than a diet. This share was a total success. Thank you!
You Make Weight Watchers So Much Easier For Me
I love you Martha!! You make Weight Watchers so much easier for me!
Thank You So Much - My Husband And I Both Are Losing Weight And Feeling Healthier
Thank you so much for the "Month of Meals!" I wish I had had this plan while I was still teaching! It's simple, healthy recipes have calmed my life down to the point that I can be much more mindful about my eating habits. My husband and I both are loosing weight and feeling healthier.
We are looking forward to trying the 28 day ecourse next. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Thank You for Your Encouragement
Thanks for all your encouragement!
Just hearing from you and others that share keeps me aware that it is not easy, but I am not alone either.
You motivated me to get out my crock pot and cook some chicken breasts. They were moist and tender and I can now use them in other dishes too.
Martha - I Am So Excited About Your Updated eBooks!
Martha - I am so excited! I just purchased and downloaded the new "Month of Meal Plans" as well as "Comfort Food Favorites." We are having an incredible nor'easter storm here in Rhode Island at this moment, but I am going to choose something wonderful to cook for tonight (provided the power stays on!)
Once again, thank you so much!
I Appreciate All The Work You Put Into Meal Planning
I want to tell you how much I appreciate all of the work you put into the meal planning.
You have helped me stay on track and try so many new meals. I hope you and your crew know how many people you have helped.
I Just Came Across Your Program And I Feel That This Is An Answer To A Prayer
Martha - I just came across your program and I feel that this is an answer to a prayer. I had no ideas as how to plan out meals, nor really what to eat.
I am very excited and looking forward to your meal plans. We need more people like you that are out there willing to share your journey.
Love Your Slow Cooker Recipes
I just purchased your Skinny Slow Cooker Recipes eCookbook and have the Sausage and Peppers cooking now.
Haven't tried it yet, but it sure smells wonderful!!
Your 28-Day Smart Start Has Great Ideas & I Plan to Implement Them, Especially the Journaling
I just ordered your 28-day challenge. I've tried Weight Watchers numerous times, but I feel like at this point I don't want the pressure of having to weigh in. Reading this felt like a friend was sitting down with me, helping me to really assess what I'm thinking and feeling.
I've already started by deciding that I don't need sugar in my life. It is a huge trigger. I have to have a little measure of success if not through a scale, though in the end I do want to lose weight.
I'm ready to make the lasting changes, and I want to be gentle enough on myself that I don't give up. Not seeing numbers on the scale go down fast is really discouraging.
I've already thought about making soups, I do carry snacks but not routinely enough-I work nights at a labor intense job, so that is really important. There is always food out at the locations I clean. I try to always have a water bottle with me.
I'm starting to have some health issues that are making me look at different types of exercise than what I've done in the past (arthritic hip, back problems). I just don't want to keep doing the same things and find myself getting worse as time goes on.
Thanks, this little book has great ideas and I plan to implement them, especially the journaling. I know that does help. You have to find the problem to find solutions. Just wanted to share and realize I probably would benefit from a buddy doing this with me! I feel encouraged.
Putting Weight Loss Into Perspective
Martha - Thank you so much for putting weight loss into perspective.
It is a slow and steady process.
Your email this Monday morning was just what I needed to hear!
Thanks For All The Time You Put Into Sharing Your Recipes
Martha - I want to thank you for all the time you put into sharing your recipes.
I'm sure it's a thankless job of service and you never hear it enough. Thank you again!!!!

Not Only Are The Recipes Great, But Your Chatty Emails Are Like Hearing From A Good Friend
Not only are the recipes great, but your chatty emails are like hearing from a good friend... Thank you!
Also and absolutely not lastly, the motivational quotes at the beginning of your emails are very important to me. Maybe a tad bit more important than the recipes... I save all of them.
I Love The Information You Provide
I love the personalized messages you send!
I recently rejoined Weight Watchers after gaining back 25 of my 55 pounds.

Your Recipes Are Great - I Can Cook Healthy, But Not Have To Stay In The Kitchen For Hours
I never thought I would be able to make healthier meals that fall into the Weight Watchers program with a slow cooker. Your recipes are great! I can cook healthy but not have to stay in the kitchen for hours. I have all your ebooks on my iPad and use them frequently.
Appreciate Your Devotion To Healthy Eating & Weight Control
Thank you Martha! I just wanted to share with you that I reached my goal weight of 185 pounds.
I have been at or near my weight for 8 weeks now. This week I weight in at 184.5!
I really appreciate your devotion to healthy eating and weight control!!
I Do Enjoy Your Recipes and Ideas
Martha - I do enjoy your recipes and ideas. I made your slow cooker salmon and it was delish!
I also have your slow cooker soup book and have made many of the soups.
Ignore negative comments, your messages are right on - not long, never boring and always valuable info.
Your Crock Pot Kalua Pork Recipe Is Amazing!
Martha, We just made the crock pot Kalua pork and cabbage. Amazing!!
We lived in Hawaii for six years with the army and missed the taste.
I've made the pork with cabbage many times, but adding the bacon and sea salt made all the difference!
All Of Your Recipes Are Good, This Was One Of The Best!
Good morning Martha - I just wanted to let you know I tried your Turkey Pinto Bean Burrito yesterday. I used a low carb whole wheat tortilla and fresh black beans and corn salsa. It was absolutely delicious! All of your recipes are good - this was one of the best. I have lost another 5 lbs. Yay!!

Looking Forward To A Successful Journey
Hi Martha - I love your cookbooks! I wanted to also share my 27 pound weight loss since I started Weight Watchers on 2/1/17.
I am on Day #2 of your 28-Day Challenge. I'm looking forward to a successful journey.
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipes!!!!
Martha - You Are Saving My Life!!!
Martha - you are saving my life!!! I have been a member of WW for 2 years, pretty much understand the program, but was having problems coming up with recipes. My progress has been slower than most. Thank you!!
I Just Wanted To Let You Know How Much I Appreciate Your Research and Generous Sharing
Hi Martha! I, too, am a Lifetime Member of WW, and I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your research and your generous sharing of it all. Not just the recipes, but most specifically IF (intermittent fasting) – my sister has been doing it since October and has had fabulous results. I love that you include it with your findings, as well!
It's summertime and we live on a lake – lots of parties and activities going on thru the late Fall. Blessed to live here, for sure – and food and drink bring up challenges quite often!!! I’ve learned to bring a big old bowl of fresh fruit and thin my wine by half by adding diet 7 up! Silly, but it helps. Would help more to not drink at all, but I am not there yet!!
Anyway, I hope you get this – and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!
