    are you struggling because you have so few points?

    technically, you have 6 points more a day to maintain at goal - so you could probably add a couple on and would probably lose a little more slowly but still lose.

    if you upped your points to 18 you could average that out as 6 points per meal which would allow you a little more freedom.

    with it being summer, i'm finding half a grapefruit (red one) with splenda is lush and only half a point.. so i have one of those plus a slice of toast for breakie - dead filling and depending on the bread you use, pretty low pointed :) x

    plus, you could get 30g philadelphia light for same as a cheese slice.. might go further :)

    orrr 4 crackerbread are nice for same points as your rice cakes and much tastier i think (personally) x

    Would you maybe be able to be slightly more active (only walking etc) then have the 2 extra points? Have you got a WW pedometre? most days I earn an extra 4 points just from pottering about the house and doing day to day errunds, I dont use them but its nice to have them if needed. Im eating a lot of the suga free jelly too and much more veg than usual to pad things out xx

    Also if you make a big batch of zero point soup to always have to hand then you can fill up on that. I make a butternut squash and red pepper one, then take it to work with 2 light choices danish crisp bread (0.5 each) because theyre quite big, and its a good lunch for 1 point, maybe add an apple for an another half! :)

    you can make a free veg curry as well which is nice - my friend always does a lovely dinner - makes a quorn curry with chicken pieces and low fat yoghurt and then a veg curry (free pointed) and then does ainsley harriot cous cous and thats only 2.5 for half a sachet which is a decent portion :)

    also, bovrils are free.. i make them up and drink them.. yum :)
