As many know… I have lost a big amount of weight over the last year. I did it so I could feel better about myself and have made some huge lifestyle changes to keep the weight off. To look back on myself before the weight loss, I just want to cry that I let myself get that big. I want to make sure to instill good eating habits in my children while they are young, so they can carry on the lifestyle changes when they are adults.
One food that our whole family loves and it helps in maintaining the weight loss is Progresso Soup. With Progresso Light and 100 Calorie Soups, you can enjoy a delicious cup of soup that provides great taste and variety all at 100 calories or less. Also they are 0 and 1 points for Weight Watchers :-). With surprisingly hearty ingredients like pasta, beans, corn and rice, and flavor-packed vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, and peppers, Progresso Light and 100 Calorie Soups offer varieties with a good source of fiber and a full serving of vegetables. Satisfying your taste buds, Progresso Light and 100 Calories Soups can help curb your hunger, making it easier for you to stick to your weight management plan.
Even my girls are asking for Progresso soup, so you know it has to be pretty darn tasty for kids to like it as well! I don’t really have a favorite in the Progresso soup as I like to have a variety, so when I purchase at the store… it is always a mixed combination. I was not able to try all the flavors until my friends at Progresso Soup and MyBlogSpark sent me 15 different kinds of Progresso soup. You know that made getting through this snowy winter so less stressful :).
