my way to a skinny 2013
Well ive decided to give weight watchers a go. :) A bit about me, I'm Em, mummy to a 3 year old boy whos birthday is tomorrow! I've decided to do ww online for the time being and then if I'm struggling go to meetings but the only meeting near me is on at 6:30pm & by then I'm shattered! I'm starting my journey at exactly 11 stone, which means I have 26pp a day.
So today is day one, no point in delaying a start :) You'll probably see that I'm a bit of a snacker but that will probably change by the time the boy is back at nursery.
Hey Emmystar, welcome to the board and good luck with weight watchers. I'm sure you'll love it. The girls here are a great support so ask away at questions. Good luck x
I have a 3 old little boy too, he goes back to nursery in the afternoons tomorrow, going to miss him but can't wait for us to have routine back my 8m old is out of sorts with it lol x
Thank you for the welcomes, so far so good today so hope it continues.
My little boy goes back tomorrow afternoon too :D And then full time Tuesday. Kind of can't wait but more for his sake as hes been unwell since Christmas Day and hes missing his little friends lol. How are you both finding weight watchers? Just hoping I'll get most of this weight off by the summer.
I love weight watchers, its got me to goal and changed my attitude to food. I've a few lbs I need to get rid of again, but that was holidays and christmas. I know if I stick with it I'll be back at goal soon. The one bit of advice I would give for a beginner is use every pp you have, all dailies and all weeklies!

lol I will probably go into the weeklies tomorrow for little ones birthday! But at least its at the beginning of the week and can get in control by next weigh in. Well done on getting to goal on WW! Just shows it can be done :)
Aww bless em, it'll be so quiet when the kids go back though! Though plus side is school run is a long walk so that'll be some extra exercise in for me lol
Iv already lost 3 stone Between ww and calorie counting so doing okay. Got 22lbs to go and hoping to do it by my LO first birthday in may! Should be do able!
Our school run is only 10 mins each way, do 40min a day but it's up and down a horrid steep hill so I do earn abit of ap with it lol!
oo well done to you! Fingers crossed you get the rest off by May :D Oh 10 minutes isn't bad lol, my little ones nursery is 30 minutes each way, and I hate the walk.. but like you say it all adds up to activity points.
Day one gone okay so far:
Alpen Light Bar (2)
WW Chocolate Brownie(4)
French Fries S&V (2)
Cracker bread & philly (4)
2 WW Digestives (3)
WW Petit Pain (3)
Bacon & Egg (3)
A bit of a snacky day but I know I'll eat better during the week and "snack" during the weekend.
Well done on your first day! I'm looking forward to tomorrow so I can get back into it properly, most of the Christmas treats are gone now too so just need to do a big healthy shop now everything back to normal!
Well done for staying within pp. Once the kids get back its alot easier. x
Thank you, well day one finished :D Early night tonight as the little one went to bed early, meaning he'll be up early..
Oh I found Christmas bloated me! Oh well roll on Easter :P I did a shop this morning to get "ready" for today, wrote down today all I wanted and worked out if it was worth it in points lol
Having a birthday party for little one tomorrow after nursery at his grans house, be fun to see what they do for him but I can see me going into weeklies for it. :/ Sure it'll be alright though in the long run!
Hope you two had good days.
That'll be lovely to have a birthday party for the little fella. Mine is 2 in two weeks. I'll be having a little party I'd say, might take him and his sister to the play centre and let them run around for a while. I plan on eating fruit for breakfast, homemade veg soup for lunch and having all my dailies left for dinner and cake lol.
