Hi my name is Marina but most people these days call me Mina. I am starting this Blog for many reasons and I am not all that sure if  IMG_1087I want to be here yet lol if that makes any sense.  Anyways Mina’s journey is about me eating my way back to a healthy weight.  I made a decision this year to begin and reach a goal of a weight loss of 200 lb. My starting weight was 365 lb and now I am at 309 lb. I am doing this with the help of Weight Watchers, family, friends and a awesome group I belong to. I know this is going to be a long hard road but I am not getting any younger. I am madly in love with my husband and want to spend a much healthier longer life. We have been married for almost 5 years and he married me at my heaviest at 388 pounds. If that isn’t love what is ? So thank you for stopping in and meeting me along my paths journey. Here you will find me cooking my way to freedom with recipes I find along the way and adjusting them to fit into my new life style. They will all be put on display to share and help others along with WW points.

  1. Mina are you doing Points Plus or old program? are your points figured PP or old points. Thanks. I have lost 97 pounds and having trouble getting these last 10 pounds off, so I am looking for new and easy recipes.

    1. Hi Janie, firstly wow a huge congrats on your weight loss, well done. I am doing Points Plus i am only new to this myself. Wow only 10 more to go that is so awesome, you must be so proud because i am proud for you. I have so much to go but hearing success from people like yourself helps me keep on track, i am so glad i met you on this path. Your 10 pounds will come off i have heard many people talk about their last is always the hardest, but you got this =)

        1. Hi Linda, glad to have you along with me. I am happy to hear you love my food, i am really looking forward to adding more and even some of my husbands meals because he is such a awesome cook too.

  2. Hi Mina, I made your Easy Chicken Alfredo last night – it was absolutely delicious! I am anxious to try more of your recipes. I lost over 50 pounds on WW eight years ago now. This past year I have put 7 pounds back on and have been trying (although not real hard)to get them off. I wish you luck with your journey – and look forward to your recipes. Delicious and low points – is a great combination.

    1. Firstly Congratulations on your 50 lbs loss, well done. Don’t worry about the 7 you got this, you know how its done you will do it again =). I am so happy you enjoyed the recipe its one of my families favorites too.Thank you and Good luck on your journey as well we both got this =).

  3. Hi Mina, my name is Brenda, congratulations to your journey. I really like your website and your accomplishments. I have just started my weightloss or healthy eating two days ago. I love your receipes and I might try some. The only thing is I’m cooking for one. My husband can’t eat, my daughter is a fussy eater and my other daughter might try a few. But I definitely will make some and freeze them. I weight 180 at 5 feet and want to loose 30 lbs. I usually use sparkpeople.com to record my food and they have excercises too. Check out their website. You might like it. It’s really easy to use. I don’t always go by their menu so I use my own menu and record the calories. take care
