Would you paint your house pink for a worthy cause? Long-time breast cancer volunteer Joanie Lucas did just that! The loving mom, grandma, dedicated friend, and passionate breast cancer volunteer picked up a paint brush to help raise awareness for the cause this October.

These are not a 0 point weight watchers recipes, but they are so worth the 1 point! When I first heard about these chips, I thought ewww….they must come out so soggy! But that is simply not the case, these chips come out so crispy and delicious, it was such a pleasant surprise! If you use one small potato and do not use any oil, they are worth 1 point per serving.

~Kerrie Hilton I wish it was this easy: I wish I could write a manual and you could follow it step-by-step and get results. I wish it was as easy as deciding to do something, making small goals along the way, and then doing it. Wait a minute, that last thought sounds like it may work! Yes, that’s exactly what I did.
