Thursday means weigh in day!!!

This week I discovered something evil.  I had the ingredients to make a loaf of banana bread.  I had 4 bananas that were ripe, and I had to do something with them.  I couldn't think of anything to do!  I ended up modifying a recipe I found on the back of a flour bag.  

In all, it wasn't BAD... I used the heart healthy Bisquick because I didn't have enough flour here to use.  I was supposed to put yogurt in it, but didn't have any besides strawberry banana.  LOL!  Instead, I used sugar free, fat free vanilla pudding.  Walnuts would've made it perfect - and more points.  As it was, it ended up like 6 points a slice.  I am so thankful for the recipe builder on the WW site.  It is so easy to use!  Incredibly easy.  

I'm still having my stress-induced carb cravings.  I'm giving in just enough, but not too much.  I'm on stress overload.  I've got one son full-force in the terrible twos.  I mean, REALLY.  The other is starting to really miss Daddy, and is getting ready to start school.  I miss Stuart, too, on top of money being ... well, tight is putting it mildly.  

In the midst of it all, and with a screaming two year old in my lap, I am happy to report that today's weigh-in is:

191.5  Down 2 pounds this week; 18 since May 1!
