What We're Eating: Loaded Baked Potato, Weight Watchers Style

Last year, I didn’t take time to write a follow-up post, but I know the streak really helped me stay on track
So I’m bringing the streak back – and I’ll hope you’ll join me! Here’s why:
“It took the focus off food,” I told the other members at my meeting. I hadn’t said the words out loud before, but that’s EXACTLY why I loved the streak so much. No, I didn’t just eat anything and everything and let …
