    Dollyshoes_ Simple Start Diary!

    Hello

    I joined WW this afternoon (...again!) and am starting on the Simple Start programme tomorrow. I have lost a little over 2 stone with WW over the years and have about a stone and a half to go until I reach my goal. I am determined to get there this time! I've a holiday booked with some of the girls for the second week in April so that's a bit of an incentive to get myself into gear and have a few pounds down by then

    Is anybody else doing Simple Start? How are you finding it? x

    Hello! I joined WW for the first time last week and tried a week of simple start and didn't get on with it. I found it hard to stick to so ended up going completely off the rails! I still lost 1lb though On propoints this week though and I'm loving it!

    Good luck!

    Hi! Thanks for the reply Hmm yeah I can see how that would be a risk alright - I don't know if I trust myself with "free" bread Am going to give it a go for the week and see how I get on, I really like propoints before so I may well go back to that!

    Well done on losing this week none the less, off to a great start

    Thanks Day 1 going well so far but I know exactly what you mean, I think I'll miss having the 49 weeklies for the first while - meeting some friends for a pub quiz tonight so the extra points are always handy in these situations, gives a bit more leeway! Will try to stay strong though, diet coke all the way

    Hope you have a good time! I think Simple Start is good for a week but any longer I'd go a bit mad! Haha!

    Wellll... After all my talk of giving Simple Start a go, I decided to go back to ProPoints after all My day was going well yesterday but then we decided to go for a bite to eat before the quiz last night - I looked up the menu of the pub we were going to and there was very little I could get on Simple Start (especially since you can't have weeklies for the first week), so I figured that at least if I do ProPoints I can enjoy myself while also tracking my food. PP have worked well for me in the past so I'm happy to go with them for the moment and stay in my comfort zone. So much for trying something new..!

    Needless to say, I used a lot of weeklies last night But that's what they're there for I suppose.

    Yesterday's food:

    Breakfast:
    2 slices WW brown bread (3pp)
    Tsp spread (1pp)
    Banana
    Coffee

    Lunch:
    200g (raw weight) baby potatoes (4pp)
    Mixed veggies cooked in olive oil (2pp)
    Mini corn on the cob (2pp)

    Snacks:
    2 x plums
    Curly Wurly (3pp)

    Dinner: (here's where it all goes wrong...)
    Chicken fillet (4pp)
    Burger bun (5pp)
    Mayo (3pp)
    Slice cheese (4pp)
    Salad
    Chips (16pp) - that's an estimate, they were too nice to be any less!!
    Beer x 3 (12pp)

    Exercise:
    3km walk/jog - I'm doing a 10k this summer and am following their training programme. I did the same race last year but walked most of it so I am setting myself the aim of jogging it this year!

    Total points eaten:
    59pp
    Weeklies remaining: 13pp

    Not the best start, I admit. Back on track today though and I plan on making up for it throughout the rest of the week

    Thanks! That's true, I'm glad I have a few left over just in case I need a chocolate fix throughout the week

    Well done on your weight loss so far, you seem to be doing great

    It's far too restrictive! Ended up missing breakfast on the first day because I had nothing in that I could eat! Then walked round town for ages at lunch trying to find a jacket potato shop and got a micro spud with cheap beans and no butter-yuk. Propoints all the way or a few f&h days

    Yeah exactly and it's times like that that make me binge on rubbish then! Some of my friends are great for eating very clean all the time and they look fantastic but i don't have their willpower unfortunately

    Had an ok day yesterday, kept within my points but food choices weren't the best! Didn't write down my food though which is a recipe for disaster so nipping that bad habit in the bud. Will update today's food this eve Hope everyone has a great weekend planned!

    Don't get me wrong I do like healthy foods but sometimes it just isn't convenient if your out and about or haven't been shopping. Sometimes you just need to stick some Heinz cream of tomato in the microwave! I do like that I don't have to weigh my pasta and quorn separate to the hubby so it has good and bad points I think. First weigh in on tue eek!

    Yeah I agree and I do think that SS is good for emphasising which foods are actually good for you and which should be considered a treat!

    Good day today and haven't been hungry at all so I'm happy! So far:

    Breakfast:
    30g porridge made with water (3pp)
    Tsp of sugar-free jam (1pp)

    Lunch:
    2 x Birds Eye chicken burgers (7pp)
    Mixed veg
    Tbl sp ketchup (1pp)

    Dinner:
    125g extra lean mince cooked in a little oil (7pp)
    Low fat Dolmio sauce (1pp)
    Chopped mushrooms/onions
    30g (dry weight) wholewheat pasta (3pp)

    Snacks:
    2 x satsuma

    Total points so far: 23/26

    The curly wurly (3pp) I have set aside for later will bring me up to the full daily allowance!

    Thanks so much for all of your support - it's so much easier when part of a little community! Hope everyone has a good Saturday night I'm planning a night lazy night on the couch! x

    Hi Dollyshoes, here to subscribe.

    Sounds great so far, just one thing - I can never bring myself to use propoints for oil so use dry light to cook absolutely everything. You can even get an egg in it! Have you tried it?
    This time I will not fail!!
