My Weight Loss Journey – Week 30

Roasted Honey Sesame Brussels Sprouts

Wow! I can hardly believe it’s been 30 weeks since I decided to take the plunge and join Weight Watchers to try to lose some weight and get back to being healthy again! (Well, healthier, anyway!) I wasn’t sure where I would be at this point in my journey, or even if I would be able to stick with it this long, but I’m happy to say, I’m almost halfway to my goal, and still going strong! This week I lost 2.3 pounds for a total of 64.6 pounds! I am so close to the halfway point of 68 pounds!

As usual I was on the hunt this week for a new recipe to try, and I found one for Roasted Honey Sesame Brussels Sprouts on Ask Anna shared by Andrea from Cooking with a Wallflower. For a change I didn’t make any substitutions in this recipe, but I did halve it, since I was cooking for one.

I love Brussels sprouts, and I haven’t had them in quite a while, so I was super excited to try this recipe out. So excited that, even though the only Brussels sprouts I could find were tiny and pathetic looking, I still bought them and brought them home!

I served them with whole grain brown rice cooked in broth, and chicken breast coated in 1 tbsp of three cheese dressing, and 15 g of Panko seasoned bread crumbs, baked in the oven. It was a delicious dinner, and I am looking forward to roasting some other vegetables in the Honey Sesame sauce, I think it would be good on quite a few things!

Do you like Brussels sprouts? Do you have a favourite recipe featuring Brussels sprouts that you would like to recommend to me? I’m always looking for new recipes to try to keep me excited about eating healthy!

  1. Congratulations! That is a HUGE feat! Your meal looks amazing. I ♥ brussels sprouts. My sister bakes them in the oven with olive oil and salt and pepper. We eat them like candy! When I was a kid, I would drop them in the bottom of my glass of milk and say that I ate them! Who’d a thunk I’d like them now?!

  2. I am so impressed with your perseverance and steady progress, HOWEVER, I am amazed at the recipes that you continually find that are healthy, interesting, and keep you moving so marvelously toward your goal. I think that is the key to weight loss…finding a groove that works for you, but then mixing it up with things that make eating an experience. You have a system going that seems to be so sustainable for life! I am so excited for you!

    1. It’s so hard to be motivated to cook for one, so trying new things keeps me going. I really appreciate the support from people like you, and my family and friends. This journey would be so much harder without it!
