Welcome to my Weight Watchers Friendly Weekly Recipe and Link Roundup
Encouragement and inspiration are critical whenever you're trying to change your habits. This is especially true when the habits involve eating better, losing weight and creating a healthy balanced lifestyle.
Sticking with the slow and steady sensible balanced approach to lasting change can seem dull and out of step when everywhere you look people seem to be swinging between overindulgent excess and extreme deprivation based diets.
Here's what I've got for you this week...
WW Weekly Topic: 4 Helpful Questions
It's human to fall short of the goals we set for ourselves. The key is to learn from these experiences. Here are useful questions you can ask yourself the next time you fall short of your best intentions:
- How did you feel when you set your goal?
- How did you feel when it came time to act on your goal?
- What's different about these two situations?
- How can I change my goal to make it more achievable?

Weekly Weight Loss Devotional
I love devotionals. I’ve been reading them daily for years and recently felt the call to begin sharing a weekly devotional specific to weight loss with you here.
Reading the same devotional over and over every day for at least a week, until I have it committed to memory is powerful. The positive words soak into every part of my being refreshing me and giving me strength.
