Diet Challenge Report March 23

Ok folks this isn't going to be pretty and I'm sure some of you will yell at me! But I have not made it to Weight Watchers for the past 2 weeks!! YES you heard me right 2 weeks. I plan on going this week and am praying my scale at home is right which will mean I have not gained nor have I lost. Given the stress of the past couple weeks and of weeks to come all I am promising each week right now is to drink more water, go to meetings and cut back on eating out and on the rum and cokes!
Now I seem to remember our Drill Sergant asking us to post a recipe using fruit.
Here is one I got from a friend(Norma) and should probably look over and see if I can make it WW friendly.
1 (15 1/4) can unsweetened pineapple tidbits
3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
2 Teaspoons Sugar (can add more if needed)
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 Cup Water
3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
2 Medium Oranges
2 Red Apples (unpeeled)
2 Bananas
1 Yellow Apple
1 Pear
1 cup Green Grapes
1 Cup Red Grapes
Drain pinepapple, reserving juice, set aside. Combine cornstarch, sugar and spice in saucepan, gradually add water, stirring until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat, and stir in reserved pineapple juice and lemon juice; cool. Combine reserved pineapple and remaining ingredients in a large bowl, pour dressing over top, tossing gently to cover. Cover and chill.( I sort of do my own thing with the fruits, usually about half of the amounts listed.)

Sorry you're stressed, I know it's hard to lose weight and be stressed! I'll be thinking of you, all good thoughts!
