    Restarting WW old points system

    Hi guys,

    New & apprehensive

    Having previously been successful with WW I've decided to return to it to try & lose the 2st 9lb. My goal is by the summer so that I can actually enjoy & make the most of it & to stop hating myself.

    I had baby number 4 in January of this year and when I gave birth I was 15st, the heaviest but now I'm 12st 1.4lb when I weighed myself this morning. I'm really hoping joining in here will give me the kick I need to lose the rest of the weight! x

    Hi katniss and welcome to the vintage board.

    I'm sure you'll do great, hopefully there'll be peeps around regularly to chat to, it can be very quiet!

    When do you plan to start? I need to get my act together and sorry out my eating. I'm going to weigh and assess tomorrow though will probably start next week.

    Welcome to vintage points! Hopefully this part will pick up again with a bit of a push from us all! When I first used the site years ago it was always buzzing! Now that people have their resolutions we might be able to kick start it and share the motivation!






    1/2st - 1st - 1 1/2st - 10% - 2st - 2 1/2st - 3st - 3 1/2st - 4st - 4 1/2st - 5st - 5 1/2st - 6st

    Hi Annalisalud and welcome to the Vintage board!

    The calculation is indeed calories/70 and Sat fats/4 (or fats/2 if you don't have the sat fat value). I'd definitely consider having a look to see if you can find any of the points books second hand, you could get the Shop guide (for the main list of points) and the Eat Out guide for take aways and restaurants really cheaply. However, while you are waiting here is a basic list (Basic foods list) and one for eating out (Points for Eating Out :)) plus a list I put together a while back for a friend - it's what she ate, but should give you a bit of a start:

    Hi Katniss, I can totally relate to your post because i am in a near identical situation.I had a baby last yr and now weigh exactly the same weight as you :-). The heaviest i have ever been for my 5ft 4 frame. The old weight watchers points worked very well for me before, so am going to aim for a 35 lb weight loss too.If i could achieve that in 6 mths i would be thrilled. I felt so miserable on my hols in Portugal last year i can't face another Summer like it. It would be great to be a support to each other. I have an under-active thyroid since having my baby so am praying it won't interfere with my weight loss. Have done the weigh in today so am starting tomorrow. Here goes lol.... x

    Hi savinac and welcome to the vintage board too! Good luck for your first day ladies! You can do it!
    A holiday is a great incentive. I cycled round Guernsey on a little folder bike and whilst I loved the experience, boy, did I feel plump. Looking back on my photos I wasn't so bad, but at the time... Now i reckon I'm nearly a some heavier, gawd! I've got to get a grip! With company on the board we can do this!

    We can do it ladies! i have the problem of being dairy free which means i struggle with breakfast as fat free yogurts are a not go, i do miss the fat free total greek with a teaspoon of honey and a banana... sigh!

    anway thought i would share a recipie with you which i made last night and was delicious. This serves 2 and is a cheap heaty unusual meal
    Chilli Clam Pasta
    Take one tin of top quality chopped tomatoes (0pts), one tin of tinned clams (john west)(2pts), a clove of garlic (chopped)(0pts), spinach (fresh or frozen)(0pts), chilli flakes(0pts), one rasher of bacon (fat removed very finely chopped)(1.5pts),.
    Fry the garlic and bacon in a pan, add the chopped toms and chilli flakes and season to taste, simmer untill thick.
    Boil 60g of pasta per person (3pts),. Once cooked drain. Add the clams and spinach to the tomato sace, heat untill boiling. add the pasta, stir and serve
    Works out at 4.5 points per bowl and i was stuffed! you could always add extra veggies to spread futher.

    I have a holiday on 49 days not and need to be slimmer!
