It’s been a month since I started using the Slender Kitchen Meal Plans, and I am still pretty much loving it. I can say that it’s still not perfect. I’m sure they’re still working out a few kinks over at the kitchen when it comes to preparing a meal plan with a recipe that doesn’t leave out any steps. I give them somewhat of a break on this as they are trying to make 6 menus per week, but I do sometimes wonder if they have bitten off more than they can chew. I haven’t looked at a menu for four people, but I’m hoping it looks exactly like the menu for two people just with a higher quantity of ingredients.
All that being said, it is never easy to stick to a meal plan, but it is easy when the portions are hearty and tasty. This is a point where I think Slender Kitchen really excels. They don’t make me miss foods that I love. Potatoes have been replaced with things that feel like potatoes in my mouth. Now that doesn’t mean I don’t miss my carbs A LOT. I am a carb lover, and I love to carb overload ALL the time. That being said I really wanted to lose some weight before the wedding, and I knew I needed a plan to stick with in order to achieve that goal. I believe that Slender Kitchen has been a big help. I started the plan a month ago at about 145lbs, which isn’t tiny at 5’2”, but it also doesn’t leave me with too much to lose. I am now down to 139. It’s not drastic, but it does feel good to start watching it peel off.
What I like about Weight Watchers is the fact that I don’t have to give up foods I love in order to lose weight. I just have to calculate the points. Slender Kitchen helps because they have already calculated the points for me. It’s a real life saver to not have to stress about it. I know what I’m allowed and what is on the Slender Kitchen menu and trust me there is still plenty of room for snacks.
All that being said, I’ve tried to keep things pretty normal around here for what I make on the weekends and thus what I share with you on Monday. Today, I wanted to take a minute though and let you all know how things were going with the menu plan I had selected and to really just thank you all for the support during this time when I really want to look my best.
