Weight Watchers Forever
not a diet ... a lifestyle
interesting recipe

I was at a scrapbooking/wedding seminar a little while ago and as a "treat" they brought out a huge wedding cake and cut big slices for everyone. I passed of course. Luckily, I'm not a big cake fan.

Anyway - I mentioned I was doing weight watchers and a lady sitting across from me mentioned mixing chocolate cake mix and diet coke and then filling cupcake wrappers and sticking them in the oven...each one is two points. Also, you can do white cake mix and diet sprite/sprite zero. Just mix, no eggs or milk or any of that.

Does anyone else know anything about this? I meant to ask her for more detail but things got a busy with people leaving and talking, etc.

By the way - I'm new...my name is Sonia from Dallas, Texas. I have just started week 7 and have lost 13 lbs.

I did try that and it was fabulous! I like the idea of making it into cupcakes instead of a cake, as when I made it, I ended up eating pretty much the whole cake over three days. LOL Cupcakes I would be more likely to throw in the freezer! :)

Good idea about the freezer!

Good to know! I'll have to try it sometime... every now and then I get a tremendous craving for cake, and maybe having some cupcakes in the freezer would be a good option.
