Hi everyone!

So... My name is Stokegal and I'm a foodaholic, I've tried every diet over the past 10 years, low Gi, liquid only, low carb high protein, high carb low protein, detox, atkins, south beach, slimming world, cabbage soup, calorie counting, all kinds of exercise, diet pills (legal and illegal) body shrink wraps, colonics.... You name it, I've probably tried it.... With the exception of WW... Never done it before, knew nothing about the diet and as I've reached over a colossal 19 stone - this is it!! I'm in it for the long haul - I have 10 stone, 5.5 lbs to lose and this New Years resolution was to lose 6 stone of it this year. I have been allocated 42 points per day which seems loads!!! I don't have access to esource yet (joining as a monthly member next week) so if anyone notices anything wrong with my points please let me know :)

Thank fudgenelly - I thought it was 3 points for 2 slices but the wrapper said 1pt per slice. I know about the rounding up but they really should say 3pt for 2 slices on he wrapper - Who eats just 1 slice of bread??? :)

Watched The Biggest Loser last night and 3 episodes of Fat Families (I had sky+ them. Ages ago) so feeling all motivated I went to a 9.30am Sunday morning Zumba class :)

Couldn't decide what to have for my breakfast before hand as I wanted granola and soya milk but I had worked this out at 8 points and we are having a Sunday roast later so would prefer to save the points. Old me would have just had both and started tomorrow but new me had tinned tomatoes on WW bread for only 3 points :)

We went out for a friends birthday at Frankie and Bennys tonight so I had to save my points as I had already google what I could eat and found nothing low points. This is a total change of attitude for me as old me would have said to just have a blow out today, which would have carried on until Monday, cause no one starts a diet on a Sunday right?? :)

We even tried to save some points (and pennies) by having desert when we got home instead of at the resturant :)

B: WW Bagel (4), 3xtsp beans (3), 30g cheese (3)

L: WW Crisps (2)

T: Frankie & Bennys Bacon Steaks (19) WW Hot fruit crumble (5)

Hi here to follow. Your diary looks really good just rem to have all your allocated propoints every day. If you dont your weight loss might not be as good, strange i know but that is how it seems to work.

Hi and welcome to my thread - Thanks for the advice - I've been having a hard time not treating my points like SW syns. I spoke to my leader who said as long as I was having them more or less it should be ok. I don't want to eat for the sake of eating, I have such an all or nothing mentality and it I went to eat just 2/3 mini chocolates to make up my points, I'd end up eating 20. I'm going to try and eat all 41 after this weeks weigh in on Thursday to see what it does do to my weight loss :)

So poorly again today :( I'm not going to work as I've had no sleep. All I want to do is eat today, I can't remember if it's feed a fever, starve a cold or the other way around. Either way I know I'm going to struggle, I fancy lots of stodgy comfort food. Must be strong though!!! Already had my breakfast and now need to keep my mind off eating, I have a doctors appointment at 11.30am so that should keep me distracted for half an hour later

B: WW bagel (4), 40g cheese (4), 1/2 tin of baked beans (4)

L: Tesco chicken ready meal (8 ), Tesco crisps (3), WW yogurt (1)

T: Chicken in garlic maggi bag (6), mushroom couscous (5)

Snacks: Quavers (2), Sausage (2), WW crisps (2), sugar free jelly (0)

Total - 41/41
