    We are out late tonight so hubby has suggested that we get something from the chippy, which is fine as I have loads of points at the mo to spend.

    But I have not got my eating out guide yet I am picking one up on Monday.

    Any Idea what points are in chips and pies and fishcakes and all that type of food that we are ment to be staying away from as I have NO idea.

    Thanks

    Thanks for that Mini that gives me some Idea, I will have a better look at it a bit later when I know exactly how may points I have left.

    For the chips is that saying tha 175g = 7.5 points?

    Thanks

    Hiya Clair enjoy your chips and whatever youre having dont think it will harm you for once if you go over your points you can cut back the next day thats what i do if i have anything like that.
    Enjoy

    I thought you had to save your point before you ate them. Or can you save your point after if it is within the same week?

    Oh bethany my PM works now! Thankyou starlight for guiding me through it!

    If you go over you can claw back the points the next day, personally I prefer to do it the other way though and have a store of them to use. If youre only one or 2 points over it shouldnt do you any harm.

    Glad the PMs are working

    Well if it is any help Marie, I felt so guilty about eating half a bag of chips and a sausage it was unbelievable. OK so it was enjoyable but now I with I had'nt as I am wondering what I am in for on Monday :sigh: .

    Hopefully i have not done that much damage with just that little bit and I did have 15 points to eat them with so keep fingers crossed and everything else for me (should be ok).....

    I'm sure you'll be fine, though I know how you feel about feeling guilty for eating it - I've got a meal out coming up on Saturday and I already feel guilty about that, lol!

    So long as it was worth it, that's the main thing. It's not as if it's a regular occurrence is it...a one off is fine...good for you even! That's what I tell myself anyway, lol.
