This post has been recently updated 7/20/19 for the new FREESTYLE points.
Freestyle Smart Points: 7
Points Plus: 2
Why the difference? WW (formerly Weight Watchers) used different methods of calculating their points 2 years ago back when they were calculating Points Plus. Their new method for calculating points is different today (which is now Freestyle) and now they use sugar where on the old Points Plus Program sugar wasn’t even calculated into their system.
Some people still follow Points Plus using the iTrackBites app on their Smart Phone.
It really drives me BONKERS on Pinterest when someone comments and says this pin is a scam and they probably even aren’t AWARE of the previous points systems when they joined. Also, this recipe is 2 years old and there are comments on this pin that are 2 years old. Sadly I can’t edit that pin below with the new points on there because I created that back in Canva 2 years ago.
Best Birthday Drink!
This has been a perfect birthday weekend! It kicked off Friday night at a friend’s house watching the movie Frozen. I finally got to see what all the hooplah was about, and I liked that movie a lot. On Saturday, I got together with a bunch of friends and family and played Bingo at Lucky 13’s. We didn’t win anything, but quite a few of us were close. I’m surprised I was able to still play Bingo, considering the fact, that I had a huge punch bowl. I ended up getting some awesome presents too. My brother got me a kitchen blow torch for my birthday, so I can make things like Creme Brulee and toast marshmallows. Excited to try making that. I also got some flowers, a Ouija board, some new work out clothes, and some new sandles. Happy Birthday to me!
Now it’s Sunday, and I’m still drunk with these Watermelon Margaritas. Heck, I don’t have to work tomorrow because our Birthday is considered a Holiday at my work place. It’s a 3 day weekend for me! The key to a good Watermelon margarita is finding the sweetest watermelon you can find. Usually, to look for a really ripe watermelon, I was told to look for a yellow bottom. That means it’s been sitting out in the field longer so it’s sweeter. If anybody else has any tricks for finding a fresh watermelon, please feel free and leave a comment below.Print
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 lime wedge
- 3 1/2 cups cubed seeded watermelon $
- 1/2 cup tequila
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon Triple Sec (orange-flavored liqueur)
- Lime wedges or watermelon balls (optional)
- Place 2 teaspoons sugar in a saucer. Rub the rims of 6 glasses with 1 lime wedge; spin rim of each glass in sugar to coat. Set prepared glasses aside.
- Combine watermelon and next 4 ingredients (through Triple Sec) in a blender; process until smooth. Fill each prepared glass with 1/2 cup crushed ice. Add 1/2 cup margarita to each glass. Garnish with lime wedges or melon balls, if desired.
