      I’ve been following the weight watchers plan since June of 2011 and I’ve gone from a size 14 down to a size 6.  I’ve never felt better and the food is amazing.  If you haven’t tried these meal plans then take some of these ideas from Jenny and pair up your coupons.  It really is possible to shed points on a budget…I’m proof!  Good luck to you guys!
