My meal plan for tomorrow



I finally got groceries. I am so glad. It makes this so much easier! My plan is Weight Watchers Core. This allows me to not have to count points but to eat well and be healthy and hopefully lose weight as well. I am content with this decision. There have been a few changes to Core since I did it last time and I think that they will make it work better for me. I am planning on getting more active again too. I lost this weight before, I can do it again.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
