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!!!!
Martha, You Are The First "Real" Person Who I Feel Can Help Me Be Successful
Thank you Martha - I just found you and your website and I am so excited! You are the first "real" person who I feel can help me be successful on my better health journey. I look forward to your inspiration, your recipes and tips. Feeling hopeful!
I'm Sure You Don't Realize All The Good That You Do, But It Really Is Invaluable
Martha, Thank you so much for the information you sent yesterday. I really needed it!
I'm sure you don't realize all the good that you do, but it really is invaluable and I wanted to thank you.
I Really Love Getting Recipe And Meal Ideas From You
Martha - I really love getting recipe and meal ideas from you.
Thank you so much for your time.
I'm no chef, so I need all the help I can get!
I Have Not Had A Recipe That I Have Not Been Able To Pull Off Or That I Have Not Liked!
I signed up for Meal Planning Made Easy and LOVE it! I have not had a recipe that I have not been able to pull of or that I have not liked!
I had the Kung Lao chicken the other night and it was YUM!!! (I think next time I might reduce the hot sauce a little - it had a kick to it!) Honey Lime Tilapia was awesome also.
Thanks for introducing it in your weekly email.
I Love Your Recipes!
Thank you Martha! Just wanted to let you know that I love your recipes!
I Am Really Excited To Tell You I Have Dropped 3 Sizes
Martha, I would like to thank you for all you do. I use all your recipes and I am really excited to tell you I have dropped 3 sizes. Wishing you and your family and blessed and Happy New Year!
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.
Thank You So Very Much For Sharing Your Knowledge And All Your Fantastic Meal Plans

I Love Your Email - It Makes Perfect Sense
Hi Martha, I love your emails! The last one makes perfect sense... focus on one thing at a time!

I was so excited to find your website and WW friendly cookbooks. I was really getting tired of eating the same things every day!
Thank you for helping those of us who want to lose weight!!
I Find Your Email Encouraging And Your Recipes Are Excellent
Hello Martha - I find your emails encouraging. It hasn't even been a full week yet that I've been following WW, but I am feeling better already. Your recipes are excellent! I love to cook, but I hate to bake - my grandchildren love sweets, so I can practice on them. LOL!! I really find your blog and recipes so helpful!
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!!
You Have Inspired Me So Much with Your Daily Inspirations and Emails.
I can't say thank you enough. 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 double knee surgery and gaining 10 lbs. I am a Lifetime WW Member but need to get this weight off. I started to make your soups which helps so 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 Weight Watchers (WW) I’ve lost 3-½ lbs and 4-½ inches. I write daily in my success planner and that really helps me. Thanks again Martha, don't stop, keep them coming.
Your Recipes Are Tasty & Husband-Friendly
Hi Martha - As a Lifetime Weight Watcher, I have used many of your recipes and found them to be tasty and husband-friendly - especially your Skinny Slow Cooker Recipes!
Thank you for everything!!
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.
I'm so glad I signed up for your newsletter! I'm also happy to say I lost 4.5 lbs. in the past 2 weeks and I'll be watching my mail daily for tips and recipes from you.
Thank you so much!
All Of Your Recipes I Have Tried Have Been Great

Love Your Soup & Your Site
Love the WW zero points slow cook vegetable soup. Going to look up more recipes after work today with your awesome recipe search engine. This is a great site.
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!
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!!

Thank you Martha!
These words of encouragement were just what I needed to hear and the best by far!!
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!
Thank You For Your 28-Day Smart Start - It Has Been A Great Help To Me
I want to thank you for your 28 Day Smart Start ecourse and book. It has been a great help to me in focusing on my Weight Watchers Journey. I have started at the beginning again and am using your tips and recipes ideas which are great.
I wonder if you could advise about defining my strengths as I am not good at expressing myself in this way.
Thank you once again for your wonderful blog.
This Site Has Been A Big Help To Me
Thanks Martha, this site has been a big help to me. I've lost 32 lbs so far in 7 months, but I am at a stalled place not, so I think this will get me back on track. Not sure how much more I want to lose, but I definitely feel better and "look" better (at least thats what my family tells me)!
Thank You For All The Time You Invest!
Hi Martha - First let me tell you how much I LOVE your website! Your information is always encouraging and interesting. Thank you for all of the time you invest!
Thank You For Helping Us and Keeping It Simple
Hi Martha - I do home health and cook for my clients. I just got one of them a crock pot and will be trying some of your tasty recipes.
Thank you for helping us and keeping it simple.
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.).
Trisha Yearwood's Lightened Orzo Salad Is Delicious!
I tried Trisha Yearwood's Lightened Orzo Salad and it's delicious!
I used basil-infused olive oil and fresh basil, then added some chicken.
So much I can do with this basic salad! Thank you!!
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.
I Absolutely LOVED The Skinny Big Mac Salad!
Martha - I absolutely LOVED the Skinny Big Mac Salad. I lowered mine to 4 pts by using a fat free 1,000 island dressing & fat free cheddar cheese. Thank you soooo much!
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.
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.
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'm Thrilled To Tell You That I Now Officially Weigh Less Than I Did 25 Years Ago!
Martha - I just came from a WW meeting and I'm thrilled to tell you that I now officially weigh less than I did 25 years ago. I haven't been this low for twenty years. Thank you for all you do to make this journey a little easier!
Planning Your Meals Ahead Is Key
Martha, Thank you for the wonderful recipes!!!
I totally agree with you, planning your meals ahead is the key to a great weight loss!
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.
Love Your Site, You Rock!
Hi Martha - I just love your site!
I'm a mindful (now) snacker and a helpful think for my planning is to portion out my snacks ahead of time.
Now I can easily walk away with a controlled happy-making portion! It works for me!!
Again, you rock! I'm so glad I clicked on the link to your site!
I Greatly Appreciate The Wonderful Service You Provide For Free
Hi Martha, I just wanted to thank your for all your positive messages and great recipe links.
I greatly appreciate the wonderful service that you provide for free!!
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!!
Thank You Martha For Taking The Time To Teach Us All How To Live A Healthier Life
Thank you so much Martha, for taking the time to teach us all how to live a healthier life!!!!
I am on Weight Watchers and down 25 lbs. Thanks for your meal plans, you'll never understand how grateful I am!!!
God Bless Always, Love MareGirl
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!
Thank You So Much For Another Amazing Recipe!
Hi Martha! I made your Italian Slow Cooker Pork & White Bean Stew last night, from the recipe on your website.
It was wonderful! Thank you so much for another amazing recipe.
Thank You For Your Kindness & Wisdom
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!
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 Always Love And Appreciate All Of Your Recipes - They Are Awesome
Martha - I always love and appreciate all of your recipes. They are awesome. Up to 29 lbs. lost on Weight Watchers since February - I've never felt better. I cherish your recipes! Thank you.
I Love Using All The Recipes In Your Slow Cook Yourself Slim Bundle
Hi Martha! I ordered your Slow Cook Yourself Slim Ultimate Bundle and have loved using all the recipes. I have also enjoyed the emails to encourage me to keep going 🙂
I Have Been A WW Lifetime Member For 5 Years Now
Hi Martha - thank you for sharing your knowledge and recipes. I have been a Lifetime WW Member for 5 years and started the WW program 7 years ago. I lost 76 pounds and will keep it off forever!
I stick to the program and if I go up a few pounds, I revert back to 0 Points foods to get back on track. Thank God for WW!
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 Appreciate Your Honesty In All Of Your Posts
Thank you Martha. I really appreciate your honesty in all of your posts.
I achieved Weight Watchers Lifetime 2 years ago, but I'm still struggling with my weight.
I am currently about 10 lbs. over and it doesn't feel very good.
Thanks again for your blog and recipes - I'm thankful for what you do!!
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.
Are You Watching Me?
Hi Martha - Thank you for this email, it was exactly what I needed to hear!
It feels like you've been watching me lately and were sending this email directly to me!
Thank you again!!
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.
Everything I've Tried So Far Has Been Excellent
Thank you, thank you, Martha!
Today I made your most delicious Roasted Shrimp & Broccoli recipe! We both loved it.
I have been printing out your weekly meal plan and the recipes associated with it. I clip them all together for easy access/reference.
Works out great as I can make my weekly shopping list and all the recipes are right there. No forgetting which grocery item goes with what, no confusion. Neat little bundle.
Everything I’ve tried so far has been excellent. God is good!
Thank you again!
Martha - You Are Amazing!
Martha - You are amazing! Thank you for providing all these recipes and nutritional info.
I bet no one every thanks you and that is a shame.
I really appreciate all your hard work!
Martha - Wanted To Tell You How Much I Appreciate You
I wanted to write to tell you how much I appreciate you. I have tried quite a few of your recipes and have never been disappointed. They always turn out well and are delicious. Thank you for your efforts and wonderful resources.
Love Your Cheeseburger Casserole And Meatloaf Recipes
Hello Martha - I've made your Cheeseburger Casserole and Meatloaf and both were so yummy. We loved them both so much, I'll definitely be making them again soon!
Looking forward to trying some other recipes soon. Thanks a bunch!!
Your Slow Cooker Recipes Have Inspired Me To Plan Meals Which Are Delicious And Healthy
Martha - I look forward to your frequent communications and have been inspired to lose 12 lbs. so far, I have another 10 lbs. to go. The recipes, especially for slow cookers, have inspired me to plan meals which are delicious and healthy, avoiding impulsive choices.
Thanks again for your efforts to provide options for weight loss and lifestyle changes.
Thank You For Your 'Slow Cooker" Recipes
Martha - I am making your Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli as I type this... and it smells wonderful. I am also making the Cauliflower Rice to serve with it.
I love these recipes, most are pretty easy to prepare and are healthy meals for my DH and myself. Thank you for your 'Slow Cooker' recipes.
Your Freestyle Soup Recipes Have Opened My Mind To So Many Possibilities & Choices
Martha, I have been a Weight Watcher for at least 40 years. It is always my "go to" when weight creeps up.
I am a lifetime member, but I want to say that your soup recipes while on FreeStyle have opened my mind to so many possibilities and choices. I make soup and freeze it in individual portions - so easy and I always have something satisfying available.
My thin husband has not noticed how often we enjoy soup. Thank you. I'm so encouraged to get new ideas!
I Made Better Choices While On The Road Because Of Your Inspiration
Hi Martha - I just finished 19 days working on the road, mostly away from my wonderful kitchen and available great foods. Thanks for your inspiring emails. They enabled me to eat healthy breakfasts, and eat a lot of fish and tons of veggies while traveling.
I would order my salmon with half the plate steamed veggies and a salad with oil & vinegar. I was not a saint the whole time, but I made much better choices while on the road because of your inspiration.
Thank you again!
Fell Off The Wagon
Thank you Martha, I needed to hear that!
It's been rough going for a while - I am WW Lifetime status and fell off the wagon.
But there is still hope as I am just a work in progress! Thanks again for all you do!!
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!
I Would Not Have Lost 61 Pounds This Year Without You And Your Recipes
I pray you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest New Year.
I would not have lost 61 pounds this year without you and your recipes. I started WW on January 15th, 2018. You inspired me all year long and your recipes have been so delicious for both my husband and me that we have both been successful in our attempts to lose weight this year.
I use a lot of your slow cooker recipes and they are delicious. So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU !!!!
Your Meal Plans Are A HUGE Help
Hi Martha - Thanks for your continued support. I'm struggling to climb back on the WW wagon and your meal plans are a HUGE help.
Thanks So Much For Your Constant Help
Thank you so much for your constant help Martha!
I appreciate your tips, advice and recipes more than you know.
My weight is a constant battle... so thank you!!
Thank You For Your Recipes
Martha, thank you so much for your recipes and helpful WW points!
You are very helpful to me on my weight loss journey.
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!
People Like You, Help People Like Me Get Back On Track
Hi Martha - Thank you so much for reaching out to me. When I started Weight Watchers it was easy to follow the program, but lately it has become more difficult since medical issues have intervened.
People like you, help people like me get back on track. Thank you for your help.
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.
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!
Martha... This Is Amazing!!
Martha... This is amazing!!!!
I found a great recipe for Shepherds Pie in seconds using your new WW Recipe Search Engine!!
Love Your Salad Recipes
Martha - I made your chicken, apple and cranberry salad yesterday and loved it!!
Thank you for your recipes!
Your Bonus Meal Plan Is Wonderful
Hi Martha - The bonus meal plan #1 that's included with your slow cooker bundle is wonderful!
I love the recipes and how you listed all the groceries to be bought for the week.
Thank You Martha For Your Inspiration
Thank you, Martha, for your inspiration. Today's quote about deprivation is ME. I have had dessert every single day of my journey for the past year and have lost 64.4 lbs. I do not feel deprived.
I feel WW is sustainable because I don't feel deprived. I AM a Weight Watchers; I am not ON Weight Watchers. Such a difference.
Thank you for all you do for the WW community! I recommend your site to everyone!
Your Website Is Very Inspiring & Educational
I'm a WW member, that after 3 years of following the Simply Filling program, have recently attained my Lifetime Membership status.
I look forward to trying some of your tips and recipes, as I'm always keen to shake things up a bit!
Thanks for sharing your story! I have found your website to be very inspiring and educational!!
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!!
Martha - Your eCookbooks and Recipes Have Been A Godsend!
Hi Martha - Things are going well! I am not new to WW - I have been in the program off and on over the years and have been successful. I reached my goal and became a lifetime member, but in the past couple of years, a few - thankfully not too many -- pounds reappeared. And, my husband needed to lose weight too.
I bought your bundle of books that includes the slow cooker recipes. I have to say that the cookbooks and recipes have been a godsend. While it takes effort to buy ingredients and get things cooking, the foods are delicious and make my life so much easier!
BTW - I am on the 28-Day Challenge. Some of the advice I knew to do already, but there are some great ideas I am incorporating into my lifestyle!
I Really Enjoy Your Recipes And How We Can Make Variations
I really enjoy your recipes and how we can make variations. It makes WW meals so much easier. Thank you!
Thank You For Your Slow Cooker Bundle
Thank you for creating the Slow Cook Yourself Slim package.
I am not a purchaser online usually, but your system made it so easy.
I am looking forward to getting your support and eating plans.
You know what it's like to fight the battle of the bulge and keep on winning.

Thank You For Your Dedication and Compassion for Guiding Us As We Journey Through Weight Loss
Thank you, Martha, for your dedication and compassion for guiding us as we journey weight loss. I've not been successful in the past but am always encouraged by your kind words. Many blessings to you.
Thank You For Making A Difference In My Life
Martha - I just love all of your advice.
I am about a week into your 28-Day Smart Start Challenge and learning a lot about the importance of small changes.
Thank you for making a difference in my life!
Your Loving, Kind and Nurturing Approach Is Such A Gift - Thank You
Dear Martha - I accidentally signed up for your inspiring messages over a year ago, and they have changed my outlook on everything. I have struggled with using food as comfort for many many years, never considering how much I was hurting myself.
I tried WW in the past, and was sometimes successful until life knocked me down again (miscarriages, deaths of parents, cancer and divorce) and I would yet again turn to food. It was always there for me, never judging me, replacing the missing pieces.
Until your emails. Your focus on the positive, your non-judgemental approach really work for me. I have stopped beating myself up for constantly letting myself down, and am focussed on how hard I always try again, thanks to you.
Your loving, kind and nurturing approach is such a gift, thank you. I wish I could tell you I am confident I will never fall again, but at least I feel as though I am not alone, and that it is my attempts to stand tall that matter, not how many times I succumb to self-distructive old habits.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
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!!

I've Made The Autumn Apple Chicken Twice Now And Everyone Loves It
Hi Martha - Happy spring from the Deep South. I've made the Autumn Apple Chicken twice now and everyone loves it. I passed it on to a friend and they loved it too. Thank you so much for sharing such awesome recipes!
For The First Time In A Long Time I Feel I Will Be Successful
I've been dieting on and off most of my life and have only increased in weight.
Your newsletter to be yourself will be the key for me, at 70, to lose this weight. Pills, fad diets, 5 times at Weight Watchers, bariatric surgery did not work for me.
I will now figure out the healthiest way to lose weight using those tips in your newsletter.
For the first time in a long while I feel I will be successful. Thank you!!
I Appreciate So Much What You Are Doing
Martha - I have no idea how I managed to get onto your site - but I am sooooo glad it happened! I love it!!
And I appreciate so much what you are doing. Thank you so very much.
Martha - I've Ordered All Your eCookbooks and They Are Wonderful
Martha - I've ordered all your ecookbooks and they are wonderful. I have preparing lots of soups and veggies and storing them in the quart jars. It is great to look in the fridge and immediately find some quick low point items already cooked and ready to eat. Thanks for all the great recipes!
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!
