Weight Loss Wednesday–Dinner

First, for the good news…I lost another pound this week for a total of 13 lbs.  I am so close to 10% lost (go ahead do the math on about how much I’ve been carrying on my 4 ft. 9 inch frame).  My wedding ring now spins on my finger.  I’m going to have to do something to keep it on while I continue to lose.  My gift to me will be sizing my ring–down!

Dinner is definitely my failure in each day.  My hubby cooks and is wonderful cook.  But he, and the girls, are not doing weight watchers.  So my plan each day is to track my breakfast and lunch and try to eat a sensible dinner.  Right now, it is working okay, but I am sure as I get closer to my goal, I will have to sort out my dinners.

One way I try to influence it more, is by doing meals in the crockpot.  It helps out hubby and gives me a little more control.  This last week I cooked a whole chicken in the crockpot.  It was super easy.

1 whole chicken, frozen or thawed.


Put whole chicken in crockpot, season as desired.  Cook 5-8 hours.  Remove.  It will come apart very easily.

We ate it first as baked chicken, the second night we made chicken soup.

I also recently made Chicken Fajita Stirfry and Crockpot Lasagna.

I could use more ideas.  What are your go tos for cooking?  I am definitely going to be checking out some of Alicia’s ideas.

  1. I’ve never tried lasagna in the crock pot. Did you like it?

  2. My husband does a lot of the cooking too. What a blessing! But I do plan the meals. So I have a little bit more control over it. I’m going to try the chicken in the crockpot. It sounds like a great meal! Congrats on the weight loss! You’ve got this my friend! I can’t wait to see you reach that 10% and you’re final goal. Thanks for joining WLWed!!!!

  3. Love my crock pot….never done a whole chicken though….must try that!!
    Great weight loss….congrats!!

  4. I loved it too. Hubby thought it was too fall off the bone, but I loved it and so did my girls. We will do more that way.
