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...

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.
This week's topic: Perspective
Easy Healthy WW Friendly Recipes & Links I Bookmarked Week:
This Guide to Peace for Anyone with A Crazy Mixed Up Mind is just what my overactive, overcritical mind needed to read this week.
Caramel Apple Slow Cooker Dump Cake - If a gooey caramel apple pie and a rich spice cake jumped into a slow cooker together you'd end up with a dessert like this, but thanks to Hungry Girl, the results are much lower in calories than that craziness would be.
These easy 5-ingredient Chicken and Bean Enchiladas are a simple, filling and healthy weeknight dinner that will be a hit with the whole family.
Have a wonderful weekend!
