Weight Watchers 5K Walk-It Challenge and Pot Luck Lunch

There is a new study just released by the American Psychiatric Association about women and how they feel about their asses.

The results are pretty shocking:
1. Only 5% of women surveyed feel their ass is too big.
2. 10% of women surveyed feel their ass is too small.
3. The remaining 85% say they don't care; they love him; he's a good man and they would have married him anyway.

Now there's some Healthy Girl's Kitchen humor!

This past Sunday I hosted some of my friends from Weight Watchers for a pot luck lunch. We all did the Weight Watchers 5K walk together and then shared a healthy lunch. Thank you to Quinn for organizing what I hope will be the first of many celebrations of it's kind. We have a wonderful thing going at our Wednesday Weight Watchers meeting.  A really nice group of wonderful people who are supporting each other in achieving their goals.

So here's my tip: If you want to lose weight, get support and camaraderie! The world is full of it and it makes losing weight so much fun. I can personally vouch for http://www.peertrainer.com/ and Weight Watchers, and I'll bet that http://www.sparkpeople.com/ is pretty awesome too.  There's tons of stuff going on at http://www.meetup.com/ and I have found a great thing in The Engine 2 Challenge at my local Whole Foods.  I'm always game for going to events centered around healthy eating. I always get a new burst of energy as a result of my participation, and isn't that what we all need to keep up our healthy new habits?

Hi Healthy Girl! I am a dietitian in the Cleveland area and I think what you are doing is great! You're dedication is to be commended. I too am trying to try my hand out at blogging, but, I have not been nearly as steady as you. Oh, I hear we also have a friend in common from high school,Jonathan W. Our kids are friends. Anyways, I really enjoy your blog and recipes. Sue C.

Hi Sue! Glad you are here. Please let me know if you make any of the recipes that I have posted and how they work out for you. Also, any input on the content would be welcomed with your nutrition background!

I'm pretty sure our friend in common went to school with my husband!

Wendy,
Thank you again for hosting the walk last Sunday. Everyone was so nice and very supportive and encouraging. Not only did the table of food look beautiful, but it was all so delicious. I was delighted to be part of such a fun, healthy event. Hope to see you again soon.
