This Weight Watchers Lemon Pound Cake is always given “two thumbs up” by everyone who tastes it! I love that it’s a simple recipe, and even better news this Weight Watchers Lemon Pound Cake is only 3 SmartPoints on Weight Watchers‘ new Freestyle program, it’s still tasty enough that those who aren’t watching their weight will love it, too. And the truth is since Oprah hoped on board the Weight Watchers’ train I too have taken the leap (and have been steadily sticking to it for 14 days) . Perhaps it seems like child’s play to those of you who have been Weight Watchers’ fans and stuck to a diet for a lot longer than 14 days- but for me–it has been revelatory.
Weight Watchers Lemon Pound Cake
Why is Weight Watchers so gosh darn special you ask? Well it’s because I have never stuck to anything– except for my marriage and religion. Those are pretty much the only two constants that I’ve managed to hold firm to for the last 19 years of my life on this planet. And after trying this Weight Watchers Lemon Pound Cake I am pretty sure both I and Oprah will convince you to join us on our journey to being healthier and STILL eating the foods we love! And the truth is Despite my lack of cooking skills, my daughter’s been asking me recently if we can start baking together. So, I’m slowly inching my way back into the kitchen and we’ve actually prepared some tasty meals together. The best part about cooking with my daughter and son is that while we’re working together, measuring out condiments, we manage to have the best conversations talking about things I’d usually have to beg her to share with me. I am the first to admit it: Before I got married, my idea of preparing a meal was heating up Chinese take-out food in the microwave. Eventually, at the behest of my newlywed husband who wanted a “home-cooked meal on the table every night,” I tried my hand at cooking pasta. My fatal flaw was that while the pasta was boiling in the pot, I took a shower and conveniently forgot about it until the smoke alarm went off and a mini fire erupted in the kitchen. Suffice it to say, I am not one of those moms who can whip up vegetable baked ziti but…I can whip up this Weight Watchers Lemon Pound Cake.
