    Hi all, I've been doing Weight Watchers for five weeks now after being referred there by my GP (with a book of vouchers). I'm finding it quite easy to do, probably because I've got such a lot of points to use! I'm also spending lots on Weight Watchers food at the moment as it's easier to count the points that way. I do plan to start doing receipes soon though.

    I want to lose a lot of weight as I've been carrying mine around for so many years and I've lost count of the opportunities missed due to being self-conscious and depressed. My ultimate goal is to drop 8 1/2 stone which would put me right in the middle of my healthy BMI zone. I've lost 15.5 pounds so far and although it's a long way still to go, I'm determined to see it through.

    I look forward to having a browse through here and getting some hints and tips. There doesn't seem to be many blokes on here though, just like my class in fact!

    Regards
    Wayne

    I think so! I'm obssessed with numbers and lists anyway so counting food points is quite enjoyable. First thing I did was buy the Food and Eating Out books and calculator so I know exactly what I'm having each day. Worst thing was working out the points value of things I used to eat every day without thinking about. Like Kit Kats, 5 points for 4 fingers! I'll have that with a cup of tea and it would be gone in no time. As for takeaways and fast food, I realised I was probably eating double the points or more that I should have been.
