Retro WW Hits the Big Time!

Hey guys! This month, Weight Watchers celebrates its 50th Anniversary.

And guess what? They released a kicky new cookbook to celebrate 50 years of eating like a Weight Watcher. The cookbook puts a modern twist on many of our favorite Retro WW classics, and even contains tons of history about the program and how the food plan has changed through the years.

No. They didn't ask for my input. Yes. That was a bummer.

But, the good news is -- I did get a chance to go on a local morning show here in Pittsburgh to talk about the new book and all things Retro Weight Watchers! I even got to show off some of my Vintage Pyrex and a few items from my Retro WW collection!

I know, RIGHT?!?

Check it out...

Now promise to meet me back here all throughout the month of May as we celebrate this momentous occasion! New recipes! Fun facts! Fifty is nifty!

Mimi, I just found your blog, and why the heck haven't I found it before now?! I have just about wet myself laughing at these posts and experiments - let alone the recipes themselves! I have been in WW on and off - mostly off - my entire life and I remember some of these things. I feel awful that I gave away all of my old recipe books and cards last year, gah! Who knew they'd be gold someday, eh? Thanks so much, you have given me a lot of inspiration and a lot of enjoyment. Keep up the good work, hope the tummy fares well, bon appetit! :))

Hi! I'm really loving your blog. I didn't realize there were other people out there like me. I love the Weight Watchers program (I'm working it right now.......for like the 20th time). My mother was a member back in the early seventies and I love to hear about the program back then. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see all of your video. It stops everytime after about a minute in. Best of luck!
