    Hi,

    I have 7 stone to lose and I started WW yesterday. Its a long road ahead but I have been inspired by Starlight (thanks for the message Sandy:)) and im ready to get healthy.

    I have tried every diet under the sun and if im honest I hate diets. However my GP gave me one heck of a wake up call a few months ago and basically said that I need to lose weight and now. I have been at WW before but messed about, didnt count points and didnt really try at all. This time is different - it has to be!

    Yesterday was fine - stuck to my points and even managed to carry over 3 for a treat night.

    Im concentrating on getting the food right and then I can work on the exercise. In the meantime im walking my dogs every day.

    Looking forward to posting. Anyone any yummy low point treats to share. Is there a recipe for grilled Ryvita and banana?

    Thanks

    Ax

    Hi,

    Had a good day today.

    Breakfast - Gammon steak, poached egg, 1 slice KM crustless, flora light - 6.5 pts

    Milk allowance 0.5 pt skimmed milk - 1 pt

    Coffee and 0.5 Granola Bar 1.5 pts

    Lunch - WW Tuna Pasta Bake 4.5 pts
    salad
    low fat dressing 0.5 pt
    small banana 0.5 pt

    Coffee and mini buttons - 1.5 pts

    Dinner - very small portion of mash, bit of lamb steak and veg - 4pts
    strawberries and scoop of ice cream - 1.5 pts

    Coffee and Ryvita with banana and cinamon - 2 pts
    Iced Gems - 1.5 pts

    25 pts (hopefully 2 to carry over :cool:)

    When I look at it in black and white it looks alot of food! I went for a long walk with the muts today but im not taking my bonus points because I dont want to use exercise as an excuse to go mad and eat all round me!
    Im looking forward to going to the meeting on Tuesday morning, the leader is lovely and really funny. Anyone tried the ww peanut bars yet they look lovely?

    :)Day 3 in the WW House! All is well. Branflakes for breakfast, Count on Us Chicken with cashew nuts for lunch - yum! and spag bol for dinner, that and a load of snacks - 25 points so 2 to carry over for the treat night!;)
    Dare I say it but I am chuffed to bits that im sticking to this and I am feeling in control for the first time in months. Im a bit worried though about the rate of weight loss. I am confident that I can stick with it as long as I am seeing a loss but if the losses are low ie 0.5 lbs per week etc I know that I will lose interest. Fingers crossed for Saturdays weigh-in

    Sounds like a good days pointing.... Im totally into Quorn these days for spag bol, its only about 2.5 points for a good portion ;)

    Changing your thread takes a bit of practise but its easy once you get the hang of it lol Go to the main WW page and double click to the right of your thread title, itll then allow you to change it :)

    Probably best explained here http://www.minimins.com/tutorials/17946-edit-your-title.html

    Thanks everyone for the posts and the encouragement - it means alot because im not getting it at home - long story:sigh:.

    I went to my WW class today - it was fab. Of all the weightloss classes I have been to (and I have been to them all :rolleyes: ) she is the best leader I have ever had. I told her that this time is different and I meant it. I am already lighter than my weigh-in at home last saturday and today was with clothes and food (Saturday was naked and on an empty stomach), so I am a happy bunny :). The only downside is that I am into another stone bracket and lose a point - thats a packet of M&S cou crisps!:cry:

    Tuesday night is treat night so I used 3 of my carried over points to have a little treat - slice of chocolate cake.

    Still feeling good and im hopeful for a good weigh-in on Saturday ; after that my weigh-in will be the class weigh in on Tuesday. Fingers crossed.:character00201:

    Day 5! I have had 21 points today and have left points for something tonight or to carry over. My sister has invited herself to my house for a bit of a doo on Friday night and she is talking about nibbles, pizza and chinese:eek:! I think I will talk her into a chinese take away and I will stay away from the nibbles because once I start munchin it will be Pringle oblivion from there!
    I had a SW hi fi bar for breakfast (I know wrong diet but my friend is on that plan and she buys me the bars cause I love them and they have vitamins and fibre added). I had chicken salad for lunch, cou crisps, mini crunchie, nectarine and an apple. For dinner I had M&S sweet and sour chicken. It weird I normally stay well away from ready meals as I found them awful but I decided to ease myself into WW and bought a few Cou and WW meals and so far they have been lovely, especially CoU stuff.
    Im off with a friend and the muts for a walk along the seashore. My eldest dog loves the water and swims and rolls in the sand afterwards so I will be vacuming sand up for the rest of the week - like I dont have enough to do..:rolleyes:

    Hi there

    Glad youre enjoying WW :) Id definitely avoid the pizza - pizza is BAD when youre on a diet, MARIE, do you hear that? Its Bad!!!! :giggle:

    Chinese is a God send if youre out or entertaining isnt it :)

    Hope you enjoyed your walk, a walk on the seafront sounds brilliant :)

    Have fun with your sister, good idea about just sticking with the chinese. I'm off out on a hen night on Saturday so I'm saving 4 points each night for it, although I know I'll go way over with the indian and drink. Hope you enjoyed your long walk.

    Im sticking to the plan, I really am, but I jumped on the scales tonight and im 2.5 lbs heavier than I was at my meeting. I know its not the change in scales because I checked my own scales after the ww meeting and they were the same. I have felt really "fat" and bloated today and my ankles are all puffy so the only thing I can think of is water retention. Has anybody any ideas how to get rid of excess fluid?
    I was really hoping for a least a 5lb loss on my first week and I was well on track for that:cry:.
    I will not let this put me off. I have had 23.5 points today and I have left 2.5 points for a treat later.

    Ax:sign0009:

    PS I have read some of my posts and my spelling is sooo bad - sorry. I type quite fast and dont read over it - note to self - READ OVER IT!!!!

    Hi Andi
    I've heard that drinking water is good for getting rid of water retention.
    Well done for not letting it put you off and enjoy your treat later!

    Dont be put off by the scales!! Ive weighed myself midweek and have gained 2 or 3lbs but by weigh in Ive actually lost 3 or 4!!

    Try not to weigh yourself midweek, have someone hide the scales or something :)

    Keep sticking to your points and keep off the scales and youll be fine by your wi :)
