    I have been eating 24 points a day but after just checking the points allowance i think i should be eating 23

    I'm female, 25, 15stone9lbs, 5"2, sitting down most of the day but quite active

    what does everyone else get it too?

    :confused:

    Do you exercise? It can help if you do when going over mistakenly and not eating AP?
    I'm sure you'll start losing weekly now xx

    i do exercise, quite a lot actually. hopefully will start to see better losses now. i was expecting more than 2stone in 6months and this is probably why

    That's probably the problem right there; people expect too much. Not to sound bad but when losing weight people see it as a thing that has to be done quickly want it off now, like next day. However for those people who do lose the weight quickly you will find they will put it back on just as quick, if not quicker... (i know it's not the case with everyone, but in many cases it's like this) For those who lose weight slower you will find they have kept the weight off, maintained, and also have learned a lesson for life and changed their whole way of eating and lifestyle etc.

    It's not a race, 2 stone in 6month's is amazing!!! your losing it steadily and that's a great way to stay, i've lost 4 stone since sept so that's 9months! Thing to remember it time goes so quickly! so it will all soon build up :) xx

    I know 2 stone is good but i was hoping more for 2.5 or 3 stone in the 6months. I know losing it slower is better but if i had been eating my correct points i probably would have lost more. Thats the maddening thing.

    Hmmm did you stick to your 24 points a day? i doubt 1 point would make you gain tbh, when your maintaining they say to add on 6 points to your daily allowance, and that's just to stay the same lol :)
