    Slam dunk da frump! New life, New me!

    OK so I have moved over from slimming world as it really wasn't doing much for me. I feel I need the structure of a points system.

    I have been around the ww forums over the past few days but haven't started properly as I had a wedding and bbq etc.... Anyway I have done my food shopping and am prepared to start pointing properly tomorrow.

    I am also cutting out alcohol for the next 5 weeks to help kick start a new healthier me

    I know I don't have a lot to lose but I also know that this amount is usually where people struggle...the last stone or the last few lbs. Its also about how you feel within yourself, so although people always say your not fat you don't need to lose weight I know I was at my happiest and most confident when I did ww before. That's the me I want to find again. I want to eat healthy and have energy. I don't want to be sluggish and lethargic because I have stuffed my face with chocolate, nachos and beer! (Like I did today!) LoL.

    So a few stats about me are:

    Height 5ft 0
    Current weight 9 stone 10lbs
    Goal weight 8 stone 10lbs
    Goal date December 2014
    Mini goal 19th July - 6lbs (babies christening)

    Previously did ww old points in 2009 and got to 8 stone 13 from 10 stone 7.
    Maintained at 9 stone for 18 months.

    Have tried slimming world 3 times and never lost more than 3lbs.

    I love to cook and bake so am looking forward to adapting all my recipes and hopefully posting some up for you guys to try.

    I have studied nutrition in the past so I know I have the tools to succeed I just need the motivation and I think this group and diary should really help. The support you guys give each other is amazing and I am looking forward to getting to know you all

    Hi Serena no I do it from scratch its much easier than you would think!. I count it as 2pp per slice. I haven't got round to pointing a full loaf and its hard to calculate how many slices will come from one. I make rye, spelt, wholemeal and a mix of brown and white. To be honest its prob a bit more than 2pp but its home made and healthy with no chemicals so I'm not going to get too hung up on the points I also try not to eat too much its tough tho as it smells so good!

    I am probably just afraid to find out the points as I'll prob have to stop making it he he! Hope ur day is going well xx
