    Well, Hello People. :party0011:
    Have been on this forum for about a week now and have been fiddling about with points but went to my first meeting tonight so I am on the wagon properly.

    Going to use this thread to talk about....er....me.....lol. :D

    Have been allocated 19 points per day (as I thought) but going to do kick start for 2 weeks on 18 (can that point really make much difference?).

    My ULTIMATE goal would be to lose 3 stone - but I am a mum so 2 stone would have me well into a healthy BMI at 9.12 (weighed as 11.12:cry: - although my scales tell me I am 11.8 :rolleyes:), I am 5'4 so 8.12 would be perfect - however bf dont want me that small - he likes the booty!!!!! :massmoon: hmmmmm?

    Ok, a bit about me. My name is Louise, I'm 25, I'm an M.Sc student, an A level teacher, single parent (although currently have a lovely bf)with a 3 year old son, a cleaner, a cook, a taxi driver - oh actually that all comes under mum doesn't it? You get the picture..... Us women have it hard!!!! lol.

    I am loving the support people are giving each other on this site and look forward to seeing as many of you along your journeys as I can and hope that when things look poo, you can all help me back onto the right road......

    Hi Lou

    Good luck on your kickstart week. That point can make a difference. Being a mum is bloomin hard work. Men don't know how good they've got it sometimes!

    Look forward to catching up with your diary.

    Thank you for your kind words everybody - am really looking forward to being skinny again! I've lost 3lbs overnight - tis so funny. lol.

    Grrrr - cant beleive I am a lb heavier than you LoveIt - we're on!!! He he he.

    I bought the calculator last night, quite good as it tracks daily points and looks quite cute so will have it in my bad with me when I go out so can track throughout the day quickly. Nice to be able to work out the points of that bar of choccy before I eat it not after.

    What was interesting was measuring my milk this morning. My estimates have always been way over! Never thought I managed half a pint in my coffee in the day - oh yes I do!!! :( ooooops! Haha.

    Looked at the kickstart book - but to make the lunches cant really use what I have in the fridge. It wants all fancy stuff which I never buy as 'standard', iykwim?

    SO - breakfast today was Sainsburys Bran Flakes (although they are not really flakes, they are little sticks) and in eating them discovered my little boy likes them?? Weird - as they not exactly lovely are they? Its good as after having my son have his tonsils and adenoids out at just 2, I have always had a fussy eater on my hands..... He hardly ate the year before his op and ever since (dec) although he has got better, we know he has a fear of swallowing due to having very severe inflammed tonsils for so long. Was so bad sometimes breathing was hard for him..... BUT - have foubd something else to add to the list of foods he will eat - splendid. :)

    Now come on girls - we're not nosey... we're just interested in fellow losers! Ha - who am I kidding... I'm the biggest curtain twitcher ever!!

    I threw out my old shopping book when I moved into my new house... new I should have kept it! It is 10 years out of date though so prob time to invest in a new one. My old one was fab as it had all brands of all the food you can think of!

    I still have my 2 cooking books though - one was Tasty meals in 30 minutes and can't remember the other one but got some nice recipes. Think Mum always used to do a pork one - pork steak in a wholegrain mustard and creme fraiche sauce - I remember that being gorg!!

    I'll let you know about the shopping guide.... I just hope they still do it! :)

    Yep - they do, I saw it last night, and the eating out guide, be useful for Maccy D's, KFC, Burger King, DOMINO'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, Pizza Hut etc - hahahahahaha. Might pick them up next week, let me know how much they are as I did not look. My calc was £6.95 for the new 2008 one but some people on here have said it's £9.95 - so do different WW leaders charge different??? NAUGHTY! x

    hey girls can I join in?

    I've all together lost 8 stone, 5 1/2 on w.w and then (with messing about too) 2 1/2 stone.

    I'm currently around 11.5ish so we're all a similar weight, although I'm 5.7 so a little taller!

    I'd love to get down to 9.8, I'm having a tummy tuck done in the next few months so I really want to get as healthy as possible so I can heal properly :) I definitley think w.w is the best way as I know the plan inside out and c.d ended up sending me a bit nuts which w.w never did!!

    I'm not going to a meeting until next thursday but I'm going to try and watch what I'm eating from now until then!

    Race you both to 9 1/2 stone!!
