    LOL! Just looking at the recipes turns the stomach. Thus, achieving the desired goal of skipping lunch and dinner. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Whoa! Those are low calorie? Well, perhaps the chilled celery log. It’s fascinating how our tastes change over the years. Those fish balls did not look so good.

    Reblogged this on Hello World and commented:
    Thanks, BoB.

    I wish I seen this at the beginning of social isolation; I might still fit into my clothes.

    Hi. I’ve just reblogged this. If I had seen them at the start of isolation, I would still fit into my clothes.

    Ok, I have to confess, I WAS ON WEIGHT WATCHERS in the 70s! I was very overweight 12 yr old, lost almost 40 lbs. The diet was SO strict, I remember making my own ketchup, so bad you’d do without it!
    I look at WW today and say, what a bunch of cheaters! Haha, thanks for memories!

    • The person who posted the images online posted only the fronts of the cards, not the backs where the actual recipes were. I guess she wanted to keep all those great gourmet recipes to herself. ๐Ÿ™‚


  19. What, no recipe for Jelly-Fish Sandwich? ๐Ÿ˜‰
