    WW worked before...

    Hi all, my name is Jo and I just joined WW online last week - for much the same reasons as the rest of us I imagine.

    I am (almost) 42 and what is commonly known as a yo-yo dieter (although more recently I've just been a yo - and not the first part either). I lost nearly 4 stone on Weight Watchers back in 2009, absolutely loved the way I looked and was finally happy with myself. Then, for some inexplicable reason, I put all of the weight back on and more in less than a year. For the last 4 years I've probably lost and gained the same stone and a half or so. Very frustrating but nobody to blame except myself.

    In the meantime, I've tried calorie counting, Slimming World, plain old healthy eating and exercise and nothing really worked for me. Whether I just wasn't in 'the zone' I don't know, but I decided last week to give WW another go. I haven't done WW since it changed to ProPoints so I was concerned that I'd find it hard. I briefly considered the F&H option but I really need the restrictions of staying within my points, while still enjoying the freedom that counting gives me.

    I have also recognised that I am not doing enough exercise but I don't feel fit enough or confident enough to do too much at the moment, nor do I really have the time or the option to go to the gym in the evenings, so I bought a Fitbit last week and am working on increasing my daily steps. I'm embarrassed to admit that there were days over the past few months where I did less than 500 steps at the weekend. I am aiming to do at least 5000 steps a day at the moment (which is an increase on what I was doing) and hopefully make it to 10, 000 by the end of the month. I will update each daily entry with my Fitbit stats too.

    Anyway, I joined last Monday but didn't start until Tuesday as that was my first day back at work. I weighed in this morning with a 7.5 lb loss so very happy with that for the first week.

    Since I am an expert 'first week' dieter, I know it only gets harder from here though so I am hoping that keeping this diary and sharing here will help keep me on the straight and narrow and, hopefully, give other members some inspiration - although, truth be told, I'm a pretty boring eater!

    I hope you will follow along or just pop in to say 'hi' from time to time

    So I made a little pact with myself that I wouldn't resort to doing what I've previously done on diets, i.e. weighed in then eaten like a pig for the rest of the day to celebrate my loss (or commiserate over my gain). However, I have decided that on weigh-in days I will eat whatever I fancy for my dinner and just point it - and if that means using some of my weeklies then so be it. With that in mind here is yesterday's food diary:

    Day 7 - Monday 12th Jan

    Breakfast:

    40g Frosted Shreddies (no milk - yes, I'm weird like that) - 4pp

    Mid-morning snack:

    Special K Biscuit Moments Blueberry (2 biscuits) - 3pp

    Lunch:

    Warburtons Thin (Seeded) - 3pp
    Kraft Cheese Single - 1pp
    Walkers Baked Hoops & Crosses - 2pp

    Dinner:

    Tesco pork belly slices - 14pp
    Cheese & Bacon potato skins - 7pp
    Sourdough bread - 9pp

    Dailies used: 28/28
    Weeklies used: 15/49 (ouch!)

    Steps: 10, 391

    Hi and good luck. Have you got much to lose? I am loving my Fitbit, it really is motivating me to move a bit more. Since I work in an office, I hardly ever move much during the day but I'm now making a conscious effort to have a wander around the building every hour or so.

    It snowed here yesterday so I was all at sixes and sevens when I got up, not knowing if I was going to brave the roads and head in to work or not. I eventually decided to go for it but, because I faffed about so much, didn't have time to do more than make my usual lunch and grab an apple for breakfast. Not good, I know.

    Here is yesterday's diary.

    Day 9 - Wednesday 14th Jan

    Breakfast:

    Apple - 0pp

    Lunch:
    Warburton's Thin - 3pp
    Kraft Cheese Single - 1pp
    Walker's Baked Hoops & Crosses - 2pp
    Special K Biscuit Moments Raspberry (2 biscuits) - 3pp

    Dinner:

    Chicken Cordon Bleu - 10pp
    Home made baked potato wedges - 4pp

    Snacks:

    2 strawberry Quality Street - 2pp
    Tunnocks Teacake - 3pp

    Dailies used: 28/28
    Weeklies used: 15/49

    Steps:
    5, 385

    Lots of meetings yesterday means I dropped off on my steps a bit, plus I finished early and didn't go anywhere in theevening cos it was just too cold and windy.
