Thank You So Much - I Really Appreciate You Doing This For Me
Martha - Thank you soooooo much! I have printed out all your recipes and I'm going to Staples to have them bound into books. I really appreciate you doing this for me.
Thank you again! I just LOVE reading all of your emails. I'm just soooo excited!!
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.
Power. Choices. Response to stresses. All are based upon our own internal power in our ability to choose in each moment how we will react/respond.
I so needed to hear this message at this moment. Thank you. You are a guiding angel on earth.
I have all your cookbooks, but I look forward to your messages and insights such as this one.
Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU.
Thank You For Your Helpful Emails
Thank you so much - I'm just now reading my first email from you!
So glad to get this info... I have lost 33 pounds since January 2017 and my husband has lost 3 or 4.
Lots of health issues, but we're eating healthy and loving the WW journey!
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!
You Provide Great Guidance For Weight Loss With The SmartPoints Already Calculated For Me
Martha - I appreciate your email with opportunities to expand my weight loss endeavors, but I am a loyal WW member and have been successful with regular loss. I intend to use the tools and books available at the workshops through WW.
I have purchased your Slow Cooker, Rotisserie Chicken and the Favorite Skinny Dips compilation that was offered and am very happy with those recipes. And I'm so happy to have watched and listened to your videos which are very helpful. You provide great guidance for weight loss with the SmartPoints calculated for me. Thanks!
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.
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.
Love Your Site
I have been a fan of Dr. Jason Fung for sometime. He has amazing videos on YouTube. I was very into the keto diet for weight loss and to keep my blood sugars lower. I am not a diabetic, but need to watch the sugars.
I did keto but realized eating this way was not a lifestyle I could do. I went back to Weight Watchers, especially when they changed their programs with more emphasis on lower sugars.
Now I do WW on the lower carb/sugar side... and I rarely eat breakfast. I fast at least 10 to 14 hours on a regular basis. It helps me mentally and keeps me on track.
Do I sometimes slip up?? Yes... but I just hit the reset button and I am good.
Love your site and appreciate all the interesting things you write about. Thank you!!
My Family Loves Your Chicken Enchilada Recipe

Your Weight Watchers Recipe Search Tool Is Amazing!
I wanted to let you know that your Weight Watchers recipe search tool is amazing! Thank you so much for it Martha! Since it's summer break from school, my boys (there are 5 of them) and I have a them for each week day with Monday being muffin Monday. That's why I'm excited to make the skinny banana oatmeal muffins.
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
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!
I Love Your 28-Day Challenge, Recipes & Hints
I know you are very busy, but I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your encouraging emails. I am really inspired again to eat healthy and lose some weight.
I love your 28-Day Challenge and all your recipes, tips and hints. My husband loves everything we have tried so far.
A big thank you!!

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!!
Both Of Your Recipes That I've Made Were Excellent
Hi Martha - I just love your recipes!!! So far I've made the chicken pot pie soup and the pasta fagioli!
They were both excellent - I'll be making more recipes for sure!
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!!
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 3-1/2 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.
Martha, Thank You For All Your Wonderful Recipes
Martha - Thank you for all your wonderful recipes. They are really helping me on my journey!
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'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!
Martha, You Are The First "Real" Person Who I Feel Can Help Me Be Successful

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 !!!!
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!
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!

I Find Your Emails So Inspirational I Just Had To Share
Happy a Monday to you! I'm doing well, got a great report on my Cholesterol during my Wellness Visit. So excited. I'm down 38lbs and only a few more to go to be Lifetime.

I Just Wanted You To Know How Much I Appreciate Your Column
Martha, I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your column.

Without Ever Meeting You, You Have Become Like A Friend That I Look Forward To Hearing From
I cannot tell you how much your emails mean to me. The chattiness, the recipes & especially the quotes.
Without ever meeting you ....in person.... you have become like a friend that I look forward to hearing from.
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.

This Is The Best Email I've Received Since I Joined WW In January!
Martha - This is the best email I've received since I joined WW in January! I've been cooking tons of foods with all the other recipes, and not always eating the correct portions, thus my losses have been minor and slow...
I think with your recipes for one, I will do much better on the plan.
Thank you so much!
I Love Your 28-Day Smart Start Challenge
Hi Martha - I purchased your 28-Day Smart Start Challenge and I love it!! I don't know how to thank you.

I am so grateful and love this program so much!! God bless and thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I Just Wanted To Tell You How Much Your Blog Has Helped Me
Martha - I have been on WW for about two months now, and progressing well, albeit slowly. But I just wanted to tell you how much your personal blog has helped me. And the menu ideas for July 4th week are exactly what I prepared for Father's Day!
Keep your ideas coming along with recipes because we don't usually like to eat the same thing more than once, unless it's really, really good. Thanks again!
Looking Forward To A Successful Journey

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

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!
I Have Used Your Slow Cooker Recipes Every Night This Week And My Family Loved Each One
Hi Martha - I just wanted to let you know that I bought your eBook Bundle and have used a recipe every night this week in the slow cooker and my family loved each one. Thanks for the great recipes!
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 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!
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!
So Grateful For Finding Your Website
Wow, thank you and your brother for this great WW Recipe Search!
I am so grateful for finding your website last year. It has been such an informative, inspiring journey.
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.
We Have Tried Several Of Your Slow Cooker Recipes And Loved Them All!!
Martha - We have tried several of you slow cooker recipes and have loved them all!!
I have lost 8 lbs. since my husband and I started 'healthy eating' and going to the gym.
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 For Your Inspiration and Recipes
Martha - I appreciate you encouraging emails so much!! Thank you for your inspiration and recipes - I have several of them and both my husband and myself loved them. I started Weight Watchers about a month ago and I'm down 9 pounds - seems to be working! Thanks again!!
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.
I Love Your Blog Martha!
I love your blog Martha! And I love crocking, and not crocking, and whatever you put out there!! Just keep remembering the quote - "We'll get through this."
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!
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 Ideas About Weight Loss Make Me Feel Like It's Doable
I just wanted to let you know that I'm really happy to have ordered your Skinny Slow Cooker Recipes cookbook. I've tried 3 recipes now, and have liked all of them!
Also, your emails are both practical and inspirational!! Your ideas about weight loss make me feel like it's doable, instead of an insurmountable task.
Thank you for sharing your gifts with us!
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!
I Just Downloaded Everything And OMG I Was Not Expecting All The Great Recipes And Info I Got!
Hello Martha! I just downloaded everything and OMG I was not expecting all the great recipes and info I got in your bundle!!
Thank you so much! I struggle on a daily trying to figure out what to make that is WW Freestyle friendly! but now I won’t have to struggle!!
I will continue reading everything you have to say! 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!!!!
Your site ROCKS!
Must say... grew up in Flushing, Queens, New York and Jean Nidetch was my very first "lecturer." It was in some obscure building near Queens College... that was the 60's and yet her elegant presence and big blonde hair is still with me today!
Loved your quote today! As we grow into the Oprah World of today - LOVE the new program. 100 lbs. down and maintaining right now with 40 to go!
Your site ROCKS!
Thank You For The Recipes
Hi Martha - I get ideas from recipes and always end up doing my own thing. But I love making food in large batches, cooking one full day a week. I then freeze some and when I have nothing in the refrigerator, I head to the freezer.
Thank you so much!
I'm A WW Leader and Love Your Emails!
Hi Martha - I love your emails!
I'm a Weight Watchers leader and I always pass along your stories and inspirations, as well as your recipes to my members.
Thanks for all you do!!
Thank You For All Your Delicious Recipes
Thank you for all your recipes. I have tried so many and they are all delicious.
I am enjoying Weight Watchers more now, than ever before. Everyday I have something different to eat!
I'm New To Trying To Cook Healthier Meals
I love this! I'm new to trying to cook healthier meals.
I'm actually making your chicken marinara today in the crock pot.
And I'm sharing your site with a friend in WW who's lost 16 lbs. in a month.
Thank you so much!
Love Your Salad Recipes
Martha - I made your chicken, apple and cranberry salad yesterday and loved it!!
Thank you for your recipes!
Your Site Has Become Invaluable In Both My Planning and Cooking
Martha - we have been meal planning like this for a year now. It helps with groceries, and also meal prep on the day. I need to remember what to pull out of the freezer, or to prep the night before.
Most of the meals that I find online - such as Slenderkitchen - or in cookbooks, I put on the notes section. I also place the recipes on Pinterest that I have interest in - and then move them to copymethat when I have made them.
Your site, since I found it a month or so ago, has become invaluable in both my planning and cooking, as I am on Weight Watchers. 15 pounds down, and counting!
I Love Your Uplifting And Inspirational Attitude
Dear Martha - I love your uplifting and inspirational attitude. Today was especially good for me. I'm a WW Lifetime Member since 1972 and your website helps me keep focused. Keep up the good work!
I So Look Forward To Your Emails
Martha - I always have a good laugh every time I see "Unsubscribe" at the top of your emails. Not a Chance! I so look forward to your emails.
I love to laugh until my belly hurts. Somedays, if I did not laugh, I would cry. It has gotten me through a lot of nasty days. Thanks for reminding me "Laughter really is the very best medicine."
You rock Sista! Keep them coming.
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.
I Love This - And I'm Sharing It With All 4 Of My WW Meetings
I. Love. This!!
I'm going to make Taco Stuffed Zucchini Boats with a SP value of 5 for 2 halves.
I'm also sharing this site with all 4 of my WW meetings.
Thank you so much!!
I'm A Newbie to WW and You Certainly Make This Journiey Easier
Martha, I'm so glad there are people like you out there!! I'm a newbie to WW and you certainly make this journey easier with your wealth of information and tasty recipes!!!
Thanks bunches - Stay well!
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 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.

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.

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!

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)!
