Happy Monday, everyone! I am just checking in again to update you on my weigh-in! I have now lost 81 pounds total! I should be on track to lose 100 pounds in a year. I had a brief setback, but I am moving onward and upward again. Please feel free to share your weight loss goals and progress in the comments or on my Facebook page!

I know I am not the first to say this, but I have made a discovery that has changed my life. I have discovered Laughing Cow cheese wedges. For months, I have been enjoying the Mini Babybel cheeses for a quick bite of protein, but I have only recently begun to enjoy the Laughing Cow wedges. They are full of creamy deliciousness, and have a variety of uses. I have personally had them in tacos, grilled cheese sandwiches, pasta sauce, as a bagel topping, and on pizza. My favorite way to use them is on a flatbread pizza. They are so creamy, you can use them as a sauce and a cheese, which will save you a ton of points/calories/fat grams!
The light varieties come in six flavors. I have personally tasted the Creamy Swiss and Queso Fresco & Chipotle. My personal favorite so far, the Creamy Swiss flavor, has 35 calories and 1.5 grams of fat per wedge. It has one point for 1-2 wedges. It is kind of exciting to figure out new ways to use this, making delicious low-point snacks and meals. In doing a little research for this post, I noticed that you can find recipes on their site as well. I definitely plan to try some of them and will review them here. If you are working on a healthy lifestyle plan, I highly recommend you check these out. Let me know if you do and how you use them!
Now, on to my announcement! I have created a Facebook page for my blog! I hope you will check it out and “like” it. I will be posting blog updates, photos, any other thoughts or links I want to share with you. Please feel free to post any ideas on my wall as well, or just stop by to say hello! https://www.facebook.com/HealthyBeautifulBlessed
Have a great evening everyone! Weigh-in day approaches…dun dun dun! Stay tuned for my weekly update!
