    Hey everyone, I am not wanting to join WW as I cannot afford it at the moment but I do have a WW book with all the points in etc from when my mum did it.

    All I'm wondering is, I've worked out that I am allowed 19 points a day which I think is quite generous. Now, does anyone know how I can know how many calories per day that is please?

    Also, would I be able to post in this WW section of the forum if I'm not a paying WW member and just doing it off my own steam and bit of WW knowledge?

    Thanks in advance :) X

    Theres a sticky thread at the top of the page with how to work out the points youre allowed :)

    Not sure how accurate an old book might be but if you invest in a WW calculator you cant go wrong.

    If youre doing WW forget about calories... dont do both

    And course youre welcome this site isnt affiliated to WW so you dont have to be a paying member x

    Ah thank you very much Starlight, thats really helpful. Where can I get a WW calculator from please?

    The book isn't too old, its only from last year, my mum only went for one lot of payments then didn't go back as she was unwell for a number of months and got a bit depressed.

    Thanks for making me so welcome anyway hun, its much appreciated :) See you around the forums X

    I would just double check your points allowance as going by your details on the side you weigh less than I do and I am only on 24 points a day, so I would check the sticky thread about how to calculate points as you don't want to eat too many! :)

    Good luck with it. I do it on my own from home also, so this forum is great for the days when you struggle or if you need any advice!

    Wow you've done amazingly well hun, thats brilliant, congrats!
    Thanks for your support and help, I have set myself a Christmas challenge, I want 1.5 stone off by Christmas so I'm going to see if I can do it.

    I'm chuffed today because my jeans and tops which didn't fit now do and I actually look fine in them, so I'm quite excited! xx

    Ahh thanks very much hun, I will go and double check now. I thought 29 was a lot but I did it twice and got the same but I'll do it again now - different day, different sense level for me!! Hahaha! :p

    Thanks so much to everyone on this forum for the help and advice they've given, its been amazing. And its kept me motivated with my exercise too. I was going to try and count calories but I've decided the points system is easier. I'm scattered all over the forum in different sections of it at the mo! :D

    Thanks again X

    I've just double checked and read it PROPERLY and omg I am so thick sometimes! :p I had calculated using pounds instead of stone, so because I weigh 180 pounds I gave myself an 18 instead of a 12.....doh!! So thick! :eek:

    Thanks so much for helping and pointing that out to me hun, I'm very grateful! :) X
