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.

Thank You For The Encouraging Words
Hi Martha - Thank you for the encouraging words. I have maintained my weight loss due to remaining mindful. Three years now.
Healthy thinking, healthy eating and most of all a positive lifestyle is my success in this journey. WW was never a diet to me, it was a way to healthy eating that helped me lose 76lbs.
Again, thank you and I appreciate all your encouragement and recipes.
Thank You - You Are A Guiding Angel On Earth
Martha, not only do I delight in making and serving your delicious and healthy meals, I find that your messages - such as the one you sent just now - are life altering.

Martha, I Really Appreciate The Hard Work You Have Done To Make My Life So Much Easier
Martha - I have just finished going through the recipes provided with this email today and find it so wonderful that I have to tell you thank you over and over. Your information provides answers to so many questions you have received and I found many of my answers there.
Your explanation of how you do your calculations is so thorough. I need to go through my downloads I have already purchased to see what I'm missing in your list of available recipes so I don't duplicate what I have.
Again, Martha, I really appreciate the hard work you have done to make my life so much easier and delicious!
Your Maple/Dijon Chicken Slow Cooker Recipes Is One Of The Best Slow Cook Recipes I Have Tried.
Happy Labor Day and thank you for the great tips, recipes and encouragement. I have already used the maple/Dijon chicken slow cook recipe and it was one of the best slow cook recipes I have tried. Next up, Chicken Marsala.
Thank you again, Ms. McKinnon as I enjoy reviewing and trying these great recipes.
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!!!
You Give Me Hope In My Quest For Weight Loss
Hi Martha - I do not go on any social media sites, but read news feeds and research everyday. Over the years, I have joined up on the odd website for their low-fat recipes or health news. Eventually, they get boring with no substance and I end up unsubscribing and promising myself "never again!"
But, your website and newsletters are well researched and full of informative articles and delicious tried-and-true recipes. You give me hope in my quest for weight loss. Your emails come across as caring and down to earth. I cannot afford any programs, but I can read and become informed through you!
God bless you and keep up the excellent work. Peace and Blessings!
Been On The "Struggle Bus" These Days

I Have Lost 30 Pounds and I Feel Wonderful - 60 More to Go!
I have lost 30 lbs and I feel wonderful. 60 more to go. I am not following any sort of plan; just eating healthy - salads, steamed and roasted vegetables, lentils, lean fish and chicken, very little beef. Fruit and an occasional treat like reduced fat, stevia-sweetened banana bread (homemade) or a tiny bowl of spumoni (I am Italian).
Much thanks for your recipes.

Hi Martha - I've been enjoying your recipes, especially the slow cooker ones!
I too am a WW girl - for many years now. I have kept my weight off within a few pounds!
You Have Inspired Me So Much With Your Daily Inspirations and E-mails
Martha, I can't say thank you enough to you! You have inspired me so much with your daily inspirations and e-mails. I was finally able to start back to WW in mid January after having my he double knee surgery and gaining 10 lbs. I am a lifetime member but need to get this weight off. I started to make your soups and helps sooo much.
Today I made your broccoli cheese soup and I found a recipe for vegetable beef soup with barley for 1 point on the purple plan. I put two servings in a container and the rest goes in the freezer. This way I can have it when I don't want to cook and won't feel guilty about it. I'll probably will be making your southwest chicken soup tomorrow. Can’t wait. Oh by the way your broccoli cheese soup is outstanding. Love it!!
Since I started back to WW, I've lost 3-1/2 lbs and 4-1/2 inches. I write daily in my success planner and that really helps me. Thanks again Martha, don't stop, keep them coming!
I Am on Day 18 of Your 28-Day Weight Loss Challenge and So Far I Have Lost 8 Pounds!
Martha - I am on day 18 of your 28-Day Weight Loss Challenge and so far I have lost 8 pounds! Your different ways of doing things have certainly helped me.

Thanks again for your support!
Martha - Your Recipes Are Fantastic and Easy to Follow
Martha - I am loving your emails! I have not downloaded the the slow cooker recipes cuz I don’t understand how to do it (some things we are too old to learn). Waiting for one of my grandchildren to come and do that for me.
But I have printed almost every email recipe and my recipe book is filling up. Fantastic recipes and easy to follow. Have enjoyed every one I have printed. Please keep them coming it is really helping to stay on plan and continue losing weight!
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!!!!
Thanks For The Support You Continue To Give Us
Martha, Thanks for the support you continue to give us. Coming off of a struggle filled summer, this weeks quote is just perfect. Thank you!
Love Your Broccoli Salad Recipe
I love your recipe for skinny broccoli salad! I have some in my fridge right now. I've made it 3 times already.
The grapes add a nice, sweet touch. I like to add a little more Greek yogurt and pack of Equal.
I've Made Several Skinny Slow Cooker Recipes & They Were Excellent
Hi Martha - I'm a new subscriber to your website and I'm also a Lifetime Weight Watchers member who has struggled this past year in keeping my weight off.
I've now made several dishes this past week from your Skinny Slow Cooker Recipes eCookbook and they were all excellent!
I also lost 3.6 pounds from last week, which I have credited to your wonderful dishes!
Thanks again for everything!!
I Find Your Recipes Very Handy & Delicious

I Want To Tell You How Much I Am Enjoying Your Recipes And How Well They Are Working For Me
Martha, I want to tell you how much I am enjoying your recipes and how well they are working for me. I am 7 weeks in and am still losing thanks to your chicken salad with apples and cranberries, Sloppy Joe's and many more of the delicious recipes from your ten top favorites and your recipe bundle.
I could not have done this without your everyday contact, your encouragement and your ideas about meal planning etc.
I am doing the freestyle WW with smartpoints and do not use my mobile phone. I bought the point calculator and the dining out/food list book . The rest is history. Thank you and keep the encouragement coming!
You Take All The Hard Work Out Of Getting SmartPoints
Hi Martha, Thank you so much for taking all the pain and hard work out of getting those SmartPoints figured out!
I really appreciate it!!
Love Your Slow Cooker Italian Pork & White Bean Stew Recipe
I had to write back to tell you how much we enjoyed this delicious Italian Pork and White Bean Stew recipe.
My Italian heritage was doing a happy dance while eating dinner. My husband, the picky eater, couldn't believe how Old World it tasted. It was something my grandmother or mom would have made.
Healthy and good for you it did not taste. Anything I can fix in one of my 3 slow cooker is fine by me. This recipe is now a recipe card in the front of my box. I just had to thank you for sharing!!
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!
Your Information Is Great
Your information is great. I am a Lifetime Weight Watcher Member of 10 years and after losing 100 lbs. have kept off 80 of it and have been looking for something to help me get focused again. Meetings never seem to do much for me - I feel it is a solo commitment.
Thanks again for sharing your knowledge!
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.

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!
Martha, You Give Me So Much Hope
Thank you Martha for such a quick response. Today I am standing at the base of a mountain looking up feeling that this seems so very large to attempt climbing.
This is something I must do if I want to be around to grow old with my husband and see my Grandbabies grow up. My 100#goal.
I know it's one step at a time. The meal planning and fast paced life I live seems to always be my excuse for quitting. Reading all that you offer gives my more hope than I have had in a long time.
I am a current WW member with extremely slow results but knowing every little bit helps. 9# down since April. You give me so much hope that I'm finally excited about trying harder. Thanks for all you give to others.
Your Recipes Have Made Success So Much Easier
Hi Martha. I find your messages encouraging and helpful. I use MyFitnessPal and your recipes have made success so much easier. In the last 15 months I have lost 54 pounds. Thank you for the big part you have played in my success!
Thanks For Sharing Your Thoughts
Martha - thanks for sharing your thoughts and the information on intermittent fasting.
I too make this a regular part of my own practices in maintaining a healthy weight and am a Lifetime Weight Watcher.
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!!
Your Ideas About Weight Loss Make Me Feel Like It's Doable

I Have Lost 3 More Pounds & Really Love Your Recipes

Thank You Martha - I Am Doing Great, Tracking Everything and Losing Weight
Martha - I am doing great, tracking everything and losing weight. Thank you for these wonderful emails, I get so much out of the info you share. Keep up the good work.
As of Today I Have Lost 10.6 Pounds!
Martha, I started back to WW on January 1 and as of today I have lost 10.6 pounds. Praise God! Thanks for the daily prayers.
I Love That You Provide SmartPoints & Appreciate That You've Done The Work To Provide Those!
Hi Martha. Im on Weight Watchers right now and your site aligns with the program so well. I have limited menu choices since I eat no mammals, but I do eat shrimp and salmon and chicken and turkey.
In addition, I am into healthy eating but I am very specific about the veggies I eat, so I search for recipes that can work for me. I've found several in your offerings and I am grateful for those.
I rarely buy or download cookbooks because they never fit into to my specific food choices but rather research individual recipes that will work.
I love the fact that you provide smart points and appreciate that you have done the work to provide those! Thanks for allowing me to benefit from your wonderful offerings.
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!
Your Recipes Are Always Simple and Good!
Martha, I just wanted to let you know that I'm seriously enjoying your recipes!
I am always looking for something new to try and your recipes are always simple and good.
Thanks for all you do!!

You Are Going To Turn Me Into A New Person, Body-Wise!
Honey, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart! Everything I have tried is just great - thank you again. You are going to turn me into a new person, body-wise! I thought maybe it was too late for me, but it's not. I am 69 years old and I can keep up the good work. Thank you and have a great day!
Thank You For All You Do To Help Me Stay On Track
Martha - bless your heart for all the work it must have taken to update the SmartPoints in your ebooks to the new Freestyle points. I had ordered your original bundle and have made good use of it. Having been on the PP plan, I didn't like the look the new SP when it rolled out, but decided to rejoin this morning to see what the new program would bring.
I was worried about how this update would affect your ebooks but here you are, just hours later, getting me up to date and right on track. I've downloaded the updated points so that all I have to do now is check the original recipe - I have them all in their own binder - then go to the download and update the points! Brilliant!!
Thank you for all you do to help me stay on track - only 20 lbs. to go!
Martha - Thank You So Much For Your Helpful Tips
Martha - Thank you so much for your helpful tips. I'm finally taking the steps to lose the unhealthy weight that has been an issue for 20+ years!

I Made The Lighter Chicken Spaghetti Last Night and It Is Absolutely Delicious!
I made the lighter version chicken spaghetti last night, Martha. It is absolutely delicious! I would serve this dish to guests! It fit nicely in my 1.5 quart casserole dish, and it looked so inviting as I took it from the oven!
Thank you so much for all the insight, information, and inspiration you provide to those of us who struggle with weight loss. I'm a WW member for the umpteenth time and doing pretty well. I have to make this time work. I don't think I'll live long enough to go through the process again!

Your Crock Pot Hamburger Stew Is Oh So Good
Hi Martha - I made your Crock Pot Hamburger Stew 2nite. It was oh so good!
My husband thought we was at a restaurant. I added chopped spinach, pinto beans and rather than 2 cups of water, I added 4 cups of vegetable broth.
Thanks for the basics! There are so many more of your recipes I'm anxious to try!
Love Your Slow Cooker Recipes
I just purchased your Skinny Slow Cooker Recipes eCookbook and have the Sausage and Peppers cooking now.

Wanted To Let You Know I Have Lost 15 Pounds In The Last 6 Weeks!
Martha - Wanted to let you know I have lost 15 lbs in the last 6 weeks. I use your recipes which are delicious (especially the slow cooker ones). I don't count points (didn't like having to enter the ingredients for every new recipe on the website) but I count calories and limit myself to 1,200 a day.
I have 72 more lbs to go. I am a paragon of virtue when it comes to whole foods, fruits and vegetables. My body seems to be detoxing itself as I keep blowing my nose.
I am also a breast cancer survivor and 100 percent cured.
I Just Had To Tell You That You've Saved Me From Throwing In The Towel!
Hi Martha - I recently joined WW after gaining 25 pounds in the last year-and-a-half (I was already 15 lbs overweight). I'm a sugar freak and my diet is atrocious. I've been really struggling in the last couple of weeks to find meals I enjoy and that also fit within my points budget.
I stumbled across your website and I just had to write to tell you that you've saved me from throwing in the towel!
I'm only just starting to test out recipes but I already feel more excited about my options. I made the glazed salmon last night - it was easy and outrageous tasting! Thank you!!
In 15 Minutes I Had 2 Crockpots Going & Delicious Meals Ready For This Week
Hi Martha, I am sooooo excited because yesterday, in just 15 minutes, I had two crockpots going and two delicious meals ready for suppers this week!
I have always loved your recipes and have followed you for a long time, but having these crockpot recipes all in one place is fantastic! Love them!!
You Made A Big Difference For Me Today
Martha - I totally needed your thoughts today.
I started my WW journey in January and I have lost 40 pounds. I am doing the online version right now - I will join a class in July and I weigh in on Sundays.
I gained 1 pound this week. It really messed with my head. I looked back to see what I did wrong. I didn't cheat, I don't dip into my weekly points... I am good.
But then I realized I didn't get enough water or budget my meals like I normally do.
So, when I read your thoughts from your walk... It made all the difference to me.
I am not perfect, but I have come a long way and I am doing it!
Thank you for your willingness to share your recipes and thoughts with so many.
It made a big difference for me today!
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
Love To Tell People About Your Recipes!!
I love to tell people about your recipes Martha!!!!
We really appreciate them A LOT!!
OMG, Are You Kidding? It Is So Fabulous I Will Make It Again and Again and Again
Martha, I have been reading your emails for a few months and love your insight. That said I had yet to make a Slow Cooker recipe until the Chicken Marsala.
OMG are you kidding? It is so fabulous I will make it again and again and again. One certainly does not feel on a diet of any kind eating that. I had sauteed carrots with it. Also, though I am a wine lover, I only had 1/3 cup of the Marsala so used broth as the other liquid and it turned out well. No shallots but used quite a lot of red onion.
Anyway thank you so much for the emails and the quotes I love reading those.
Thanks For All Your Help
Thank you for all the helpful information!
I love food, I know it is a source of comfort to me and even an easy friend when you live alone.
I want peace with food and to be able to enjoy it but not make it an obsession or a cause for failure.
Thanks again for all your help, you have been down same the road!
You Are Doing A Great Service To All Of Us Trying To Eat Healthy
Martha, Thank you for the great recipes and encouragement to lose weight and keep it off while still eating satisfying food. Your emails are by far the greatest find for me.

Both Of Your Recipes That I've Made Were Excellent

Martha - Thank you for your kindness. I am so encouraged by the things that you are sending.
You are such an encourager and full of practical help and wisdom. May you be blessed today!
Thank You For All Of Your Emails, Blog and Recipes!!
Yay, thank you!! I too am single and following (AND LOVING) the new WW Freestyle Plan! So far I have lost 56 pounds (since the middle of May). I still have a ways to go, but stick with it. Thank for all of your emails, blog and recipes!!! The thing that is easy when making a bigger recipe is that I can freeze any leftovers (especially soups, chili, etc.).
I Am Really Excited To Tell You I Have Dropped 3 Sizes

Thank You Martha For Sharing Your Recipes
Thank you Martha for sharing your recipes. I've had weighty issues all my life and have been on the weight loss see saw with several different diets and even going to the doctor for help.
I was on WW before, but never got the hang of it. So I'm dedicated this time to learning and doing things right, in order to get my weight off and keeping it off.
I'm Really Enjoying Using My Crock Pot To Make Summer Meals
It's in the upper 90's here and we could sure use some rain. I'm really enjoying using my crock pot to make summer meals. This is a 1st for me and I'm really enjoying all the new recipes you share. Thank you!
I Have Enjoyed A Number Of Your Crock Pot Recipes... Delicious!!
Hi! I have followed you on Facebook for quite a while and have enjoyed a number of your crock pot recipes. Delicious!! I work at a small hospital in Kansas. I am the grant coordinator for a grant we received from Blue Cross Blue Shield. The grant is for improving health in our community through healthy food choices and physical activity. I am going to start publishing healthy recipes on our Facebook page, as well as putting those recipes on cards that will be available at our local supermarket. I wondered if I could use some of your recipes in both places, giving you credit for them, of course. Thank you!!
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!
What An Inspiring Message & Thank You
Hi Martha - What an inspiring message and thank you for including me in your list. As you may or may not know, I spent 17 years as a Weight Watchers Leader. I also was a Personal Chef for over 10 years and have led many cooking classes via my local educational organizations, Whole Foods, and local Cities Educational Courses.
As a WW Leader, I also reminded members that losing weight is 95% in our heads. We have fat heads! What I meant was, we have total control over what our body does. We think food is the biggest obstacle for us. It is also such a complex situation and it takes the following: Patience, with yourself and whatever program you follow; Persistence, you must be persistent and present for the entire journey; and Practice, you must practice what you are learning everyday.
I loved your email and it got me thinking again. I have so much to share and love doing this work. I am so happy to see that you are in my "village" of changing minds and speaking what we want not what we don't want.
With great appreciation for what you do!
Thank You For Helping Us With Healthy Recipes
Martha, Thank you so much for all the time you spend helping all of us with healthy recipes and wonderful tips.
I also love the quotes you put in your emails. Awesome!!
Martha, Thank You For All Your Wonderful Recipes - I See Your Emails As A Gift
I just have to say thank you Martha for all your wonderful recipes. I see your emails as a gift! It can be hard for retired people on a fixed income to buy a lot of books, so I appreciate all your helpful emails. 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!!
I Absolutely Love Your Ideas and Recipe - Everything Tastes So Good
Hi Martha, I absolutely love your ideas and recipes. 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!
Martha - I'm So Happy To Have Found Your Site
I am so happy to find this site. I have been doing WW since July of 2019. I have so far lost 60 lbs. but I was getting very bored with what I had been cooking. It is so nice to have new recipes, thank you for all your hard work, it is much appreciated!
I Just Wanted to Say Thank You for the Great Emails and Recipes!
Martha - I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the great emails and recipes. I joined WW about a month ago and get nothing from them except emails about points and prizes. They should be providing what you are but since they aren't, I'm so happy I found your site!
Thanks a Million!!
Martha - I just wanted to say thanks a million! My husband has lost 13 lbs. in 3 weeks and I have lost 11.
I must lose weight for my knees, heart and overall health. Thank you for your inspiration.
To our good health!
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.

Just Wanted To Say Martha, That You Have Changed My Life!!!
I have been following you for some years now and admire your passion and dedication to sharing your knowledge, your recipes, your E-Books and almost daily posts.
