As if in answer to a prayer, the following recipe showed up in my email yesterday. I have mentioned before that I am a cheesecake FREAK! Here is what I got-
Recipe Rating: 5 Star
Prep Time: 10 min
Total Time: 3 hr 50 min
Makes: 8 servings
|2 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Fat Free Cream Cheese, softened|
|1/2 cup sugar|
|1/2 tsp. vanilla|
|1/2 cup canned pumpkin|
|1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon|
|Dash ground nutmeg|
|1/3 cup HONEY MAID Graham Cracker Crumbs|
|1/2 cup thawed COOL WHIP FREE Whipped Topping|
If you use eggbeaters instead of eggs, and now they have ‘lowfat’ graham crackers, so the nutritional info can go down a little more still! No one could possibly know how happy this makes me! And it had several reviews that said it was absolutely the best!

This will be one of my favorite steps in taking control of the upcoming holiday.
Now, for the good not so good news. After reading Ladyshanny’s and HPWNow’s blogs the other day, I got very inspired. I was going to go to WW on Monday, but was afraid they were closed due to VA day. Tues. I was too late, so I finally made it yesterday. I bought my monthly pass, etc. and went and weighed in. I’m afraid I have just been playing stupid games with myself up to this point and the scale definately show it. Not only do I weigh more now than I did the last time I started on WW, but my scale is 5lbs. off, so it was even worse than I thought! I now weigh more than I did when I was 9 mos. pregnant with any of my 3 children. Talk about a wake up call! So, even tho the holidays are coming up, I have control over what gets made, how it’s made and how much I eat. I have a new, truer commitment and I will see this thru!!
