    Red face Natalie's WW Diary - OFFICIAL & FINAL Diet Re-Start

    Hey All!!

    Ok made a couple of posts on here in the past but this is the first time I've done a diary...I'm mainly doing the diary as I'm doing WW on my own. I've got the books and I've got the WW scales so I'll do my W.I's myself.

    Did Lighter Life last summer (End May - End Aug) and lost approx 3.5 stone on it ...BUT I've put on about 19lbs since I came off ...messing about on WW and over xmas/new year etc

    SO...I can't afford for it to get any higher! Am already kicking myself over the 19lbs and I'd be mortified if my weight crept back up to what it was pre Lighter Life!

    So..the official re-start is TODAY!

    I want to lose about 50lbs more to start with ...possibly more later but I can remember being 11.5 stone and being happy with my figure..I'm 5'7 and I know 11.5 is still probs a bit over but I'll see when I'm there how I feel.

    My first mini goal is to get to 13stone 2lbs...that brings my BMI to under 29 which means I couldn't do Lighter Life again even if I wanted to!

    I was wondering..I'm a nightmare for going out at the weekend with my mates and drinking and usually ending up in the kebab shop or somewhere similar...would it be wise to drop my points a bit more than they advise if I know I'll use more at weekend?

    Or even to kickstart my weight loss this week if I dropped to 14pts if I can as that's what they say the minimum should be...do you think I'd get a good loss?? I'm also trying to drink LOADS of water!!

    Does anyone have any tips to give me a kick start to motivate me to keep going!? Help needed...hence reason for this diary!

    I don't want to go back to classes when I've got the books and the official scales...but I need that motivation!

    So am going to W.I here on a Wednesday morning!

    First weigh in this morning:-

    15st 1lb 3/8

    Goal 1 - 13st 2lbs

    Thanks everyone!!!

    Hi and welcome back to WW.......good luck with it all and I am sure that you will reach that goal.
    I am no expert on this, but my own personal advice is not to do the 14 points thing, but to have the points that you are officially meant to have each day and maybe save a couple each day for the weekend thing.....if you have 14 points a day, you MIGHT find it too low and impossible to stick to resulting in feeling like its not for you etc...personally i would rather have the amount you are allowed to have and feel that you can cope on it and can stick on it for the long haul, rather than quick fix, but that is just my opinion and of course if you feel that the 14 points a day will suit you as a kick start then go for it...
    Anyway, I think WW is fab, and I'm sure you will see the LB's falling off soon!

    Thanks Thin Lizzy!

    Am definitely not looking to do the 14pts thing long term...it'ss just to give me a bit of a boost for a week/2 weeks max...but am wondering if it'll work? SURELY dropping to 14pts a day for a week you're going to lose weight?!...

    I just need that good boost for maybe weeks 1 and 2...just so I see a result and it gives me motivation to continue...

    I really want the 50lbs off before I go on hols on 3rd August so am looking at 2lbs a week..EVERY week!!

    Diet: WW
    Hey welcome to WW!!

    I only started on monday and doing it at home not going to the meetings so I can't really give you any tips hun!

    I'm taking it one day at a time and really trying to be careful with my points, writing it down is a must so you can keep track! I'm not sure on the 14 points thing, to me it sounds not very much and you might just feel hungry all the time... my only other thought is you could do it as you say for a few weeks lose a bit but then when you go back to your daily amount you might find you could put a bit on or stay the same and then you might feel less motivated?!

    Great place here with great support so you picked the right place!!

    I'm drinking about 6/7 glasses of water a day and the loo is my second home!!!

    I definitely don't want to be putting weight on or staying the same...I need that 2lbs off as many weeks as I can...

    Does anyone actually know what would happen if I did 14pts for a week or 2 (bearing in mind that I'll be using more points at weekends!)...and then went up to the points I should have which is 23 (well I use 19 and save 4 a day for weekends as normal)???

    Really need a boost for my next weigh in or 2.....

    Hello!!!

    Congratulations on your great loss to date! thats fantastic.

    Regarding the whole 14point thing, I can really see how appealing that would be to do (except for the fact you'd be starving!!! ),

    I really understand as like you, Im on a "dead line" to loose the weight too (my wedding in August) so its not like I can afford to sts or mess around at all. I want it quickly!! lol!

    .....BUT having said that I really wouldnt recommend doing it - from what Ive learned on here, your allocated a certain amount of points for a reason (bearing in mind your weight and height etc.. ) its very important that you eat your recommended allowance and dont save anymore that 4points a day - the reason for this is that if we eat way too little for our bodies to live on (and 14pts would be!), our bodies basically start to "store" fat - and apparantly when you do feed yourself, your body thinks "Im not getting much food so Ill put this by for when I need it"....

    Definately not what we want!! by eating the 14 (imo) you could actually risk sts or putting on more!!!! aaarrrgghh!!!!

    I have heard about the kick start plan, its only recommended for a week or two (like you were intending anyway!) as far as I know PLUS (im fairly sure anyway!) it recommends no less than 22points per day if your over 14stone and no less than 18 if your under 14st (can anyone clarify that actually??)

    Best of luck pet!!! x



    Previously lost 7 stone in 10 months thanks to weight watchers and minimins, unfortunately gained alot because of pregnancy..
    AM A DEDICATED FOLLOWER OF WEIGHT WATCHERS, JUST NEED A KICK START ON LT AS SO, SO DOWN WITH MY POST PREGNANCY WEIGHT SO....

    Yeah I've heard that about Kickstart Nikki you're absolutely right...ok so maybe I should eat my points then and just hope the weight still comes off!? I could eat 18/19 as I should be on 23 so I'd be saving 4 (or assuming I did kickstart and took 22 points and saved 4 that'd then be 18 points)...

    How about trying to do a little bit of exercise too?! Maybe going out for a walk after your meal?!

    I'd be worried that if I ate more and saved less that it wouldn't cover the drinking....alcohol is pretty high calorie and my friends and I are party animals!!

    Aaaah I don't know what to do for the best..........

    Yeah have started drinking vodka and diet coke or vodka with soda water and lime when I got out as it seems to be not bad points wise?
    Just not sure how many points to save for the weekend (for a night out and probs a chipper or kebab or something) and still lose weight!!..Bearing in mind whatever I eat on a Saturday night on way home is probs all I've had to eat that day apart from toast/a sandwich or whatever.
