Pizza, Pizza!

Many people think they can't lose weight, because they'd have to end their life long love affair with their food. Admittedly, I was maybe one of those people before I started WeightWatchers, but I have LOVED finding WeightWatchers~friendly versions of my favorites. I'll be the first to admit when the WWF version does not measure up to the old one, but let's face it ~ there is no alternatives that taste quite like REAL cheese & REAL butter & REAL cream. Now, let's GET OVER THAT and move on! Done!

This, however, is a fantastic alternative. Who doesn't love PIZZA? Honestly, of all the people I've ever met, known & loved in my life, I've NEVER met, known or loved anyone that didn't like pizza.
My fellow Fat Chicks & Fabulous Dieters ~ meet Kashi Pizza

Justin and I have a little secret tradition and I'll confess it... we like to eat pizza on Biggest Loser night. Now I can join him and eat my Kashi pizza and not feel bad for one minute! My other tradition is to run on the treadmill for the first hour of the show, so that racks up activity points and I can enjoy as much of my pizza as I want! I'll be honest, I prefer the original crust, and other fantastic varieties include ~ Roasted Garlic Chicken, Mediterranean, Five Cheese Tomato, Mushroom Trio & Spinach, Tomato Garlic Cheese! YUMMMM!
