Adding Nutritional Facts

For a while now I have been receiving emails and comments from readers asking me if I would be willing to post nutritional facts, instead of just the pointsplus values, on the recipes on my blog. Up until yesterday, I have been putting it off and telling people that I am not willing to do that at this time. I knew what a HUGE undertaking this would be and that I really do not have time to do it right now. I thought that maybe I would get around to doing it, but I was not in any kind of hurry.

However, yesterday everything changed after I conversation I had with my youngest sister, Vivian.

Me and Vivian at her wedding in May 2011

Vivian is the mother to two beautiful children! She is blessed to be able to stay home with them full-time. Since having her baby girl in April, it has been Vivian's desire to lose her baby weight and get healthy. It has not been easy, but she is doing it with My Fitness Pal. She is tracking her calories each day to make sure that she does not go above the amount that her body needs.
Vivian's desire to lose weight and count calories is what pushed me over the edge to add additional nutritional facts to the recipes on my blog. I want my sister to be able to visit my blog and use my recipes as she is on her weight loss journey!

I'm so sorry that I did not realize how important this was sooner! I am so thankful that God's using my sister to teach me how to help the rest of you who are trying to lose weight and be healthy!

This process is going to take some time and with my new baby coming soon it might take longer, so please be patient with me. So far, I've only got nutritional facts for six of my most recent recipe reviews. I will continue to work on them and hopefully get done sooner than later. Below is a sample of what my recipes will look like with the added nutritional facts.

I am so excited about this change. However, as I said above, please be patient with me as I work on this project! I hope that this hardwork pays off and continues to help you all as you lose weight!!

Good luck with this huge undertaking! Now people who don't exclusively follow Weight Watchers can still utilize your awesome recipes. =]

That's great! I've been using myfitnesspal.com for about 4 weeks and I love it! I'm already 5 pounds down.

Thank you for beginning to add nutrition facts! I really appreciate that you would consider doing this for us followers who aren't with weight watchers. I also use myfitnesspal and it's helped me to lose 16 pounds so far. Thank you again!
