It was a lovely day for a walk where I was - nice bright sunshine. Hopefully it was the same for you as this also lifts the mood.

When I make cottage pie I make it with no butter in the mash and drain off any fat and it usually comes in at 12pp when making a 500g pack of lean mince go between 4 portions.

Sounds like you had better weather it was very misty and a little cold but I enjoyed it.

i drained the fat off my mince which was 12% fat mince as nothing else in the shop, I did add butter to the mash so I may have to not do this next time and in terms of portion size I have stacks left in the dish as others in the house like to eat it over a couple of days and I will take some to work for lunch.

i found it difficult to measure the points as I didn't weigh my portion on my plate although I used a smaller plate than I normally use and when I portioned it out I took some off and put it back as looked too much

it all helps and I had ample so maybe I could go smaller next time

I purchased a morphs Richards saute and soup maker from Amazon today and can't wait for it to arrive towards the end of the week

i figured I can make more soups which will be low points and yummy to take to work and have at home

does anyone have a soup maker? How do you get on with them?

this one apparently makes smooth soup in 20 mins or chunky in 28. Excited

I don't have one - I just use a blender - but I love soup with a sandwich in the winter. I freeze them in screw top liquid containers (dirt cheap from Wilko's) so that I am never short of a "ready meal" for lunch.

I am really interested in how you get on with this so please do keep us posted when it arrives!

Hi everyone

today has been a funny one as at this point I am typing and I still have 10 points left and I am a bit she'll shocked tbh

i have had a busy day at work and I ate the following

brekkie - omlette (7 as not home made so not sure on points)
semi skimmed milk for coffee (4)
snacks - apples and clemintines

lunch - ww chicken hotspot frozen meal (7) this was very tasty. Carrots and green beans

dinner - ham salad with vinegrete (7)
french fries (2)

i have another bag bag of crisps (2) and a bag of popcorn for snacks (2) so I will have 6 points left.

do you all eat your points every day? I know u can't move them to tomorrow....

i would normally as I could eat stacks more really. It's bizarre....

Thanks sugar fairy

in fairness I only have 2 left as I have a cheeky couple of biscuits which were yummy and a nice treat so I am ok with two left over as I don't really want to eat a third bag of crisps...

i have nt been at home so haven't weighed myself to see how I am doing although as I said previously I don't want to get in the habit of weighing every day but I like to be nosey to see how I am going.

i so want to lose weight for the second week and like we all do I am sure by Saturday I will be nervous about weigh in.

i am home tomorrow night and then working from home on Friday so I will have some home comforts which will be nice

i am also going to the doctors and thought while I am there I may talk about weight management as I have heard about prescription drugs re weigh management but read scary stories so I don't want that as I am doing ww but I want it to be on the radar re my weight and I felt if I talk to the nurse about it then I will feel more motivated to keep going...not sure if that makes sense but it does to me..sorry i I was waffling a bit there

how has everyone done today?
