    Hi! I'm Becky and myself and my friend Arline are both hoping to lose 2 stone each on Weight Watchers' Points plan!

    As Arline has a busy job it's mainly just me here so please leave me a comment or I'll get lonely!!

    This is my plan... I'm going to have 18 points a day and aim for a weight loss of 1-2lbs a week!

    Breakfast:
    2 WW Danish with very low fat spread and a scrape of reduced sugar raspberry jam (2)
    apple (0.5)

    Lunch:
    Packet of Bachelors Savoury Chinese rice (6.5)
    Swizzles Double lolly (0.5)
    Half a sachet of hot chocolate (0.5)

    Dinner:
    Homemade tomoto and lamb soup (2)
    2 clementines (0.5)
    Sainsbury's basics cheesy puffs (1.0)
    Swizzles Double lolly (0.5)

    Not sure yet whether I'll use the remaining 4 points or save them for another day...

    Total points used: 14
    Points saved: 4

    I saved the 4 points from yesterday, I wasn't hungry so decided to save them for when I have the munchies!

    Today was a very busy day, I visited my mum, then popped into town and finally to B&Q for some paint. Tomorrow will be spent painting in the kitchen so lots of calories will be burnt hopefully!!

    Breakfast:
    2 WW Danish bread with scraping of spread and low sugar raspberry jam (2)
    Cup of coffee (1)
    Apple (0.5)

    Lunch:
    Morrison's Eat Smart Tuna and sweetcorn sandwich (3.5) Wasn't the most exciting sandwich but good for the points!
    Options Caramel hot choc (1)
    Sainsbury's Basics cheesy puffs (1)

    Dinner:
    Bachelors packet Beef savoury rice (6.5) not as yummy as the Chinese flavour!
    Swizzles lolly (0.5)

    Evening Snacks:
    Sainsbury's basics onion rings (1)
    2 clementines (0.5)
    Swizzles double lolly (0.5)

    Total points used: 18
    Points saved: 4 (from Monday)

    Feeling bloated today, it's either pre-menstral water retention or all the fizzy pop I've been drinking!!

    I'm trying to use up everything we have in the cupboards at the moment and also run down the freezer, I've only got a few frozen carrots and a bag of sweetcorn in the freezer, that's it for veg in the house! I'm going to use them to make a veg soup later. Really missing my veg but like I say I will buy more in once the kitchen is finished, can't wait!!

    I was tired last night so I decided to have an early night at 8pm as I had to be up at 6.30 in the morning and I was exhausted! Had no problem dropping off but then I woke at 10 for the toilet and then spent 2 hours tossing and turning! So at midnight I decided that I was thirsty and so came downstairs for a drink and had a look on here lol! After about 20 minutes I realised it wasn't thirst but hunger!! So at 12.30 I had some soup lol! Then it was straight to sleep with a full tummy, bliss lol! Got up at 6.30 as the council are picking up our old sofa and it had to be out for 7. OH bless him was not very good at directing it through the door, so it was me to the rescue telling him how to turn it and where to push and pull!! After about a 15 minute struggle it was out the door!! So after all that excitement this is my food diary for today (so far... will update the rest later!)

    Midnight: Homemade Lamb and tomato soup (2)

    Breakfast: 2 WW danish with a bit of very light spread and a scraping of reduced sugar raspberry jam (2)
    2 clementines (0.5)
    Swizzles Double lolly (0.5)

    Lunch:
    Bachelors packet Chinese savoury rice (6.5)
    Swizzles Double lolly (0.5)
    Pom-Bears (1.5)

    Dinner:
    Lamb and tomato soup (2)
    Swizzles Double lolly (0.5)
    Apple (0.5)
    Highlights (1)
    2 clementines (0.5)

    Muchies:
    bag of Malteasers (4)
    Lamb and tomato soup (2)

    Total points used: 24
    Points saved: -2! (saved 4 from monday but had an extra 2 so need to repay them back!!)

    I have noticed that my food is very samey, when I do WW I do tend to have my favourite foods... but I'm sure there'll be more variety once I have my kitchen back!!

    Really pleased as I've come over from SW so not technically my first week on a diet so wasn't expecting a huge loss!! xx

    And just realised this brings entire weight loss to 3 and a half stone!!

    Helloooo!

    Becky wasn't imagining me, I am here! I have just joined tonight so will be spending this week exploring the forum. As Becky said, we are both doing the WW points diet and have both had good weeks...although I feel my loss may be down to losing my appetite for a few days! I am hoping to lose two stone by my next birthday in September....earlier if possible! I got married in August and have put on quite a bit of weight since the wedding so now need to get back in shape. I also have a Wii fit which I am trying to go on three times a week for half an hour at least...only managed once this week but hoping to get back on to it over the next few says! Looking forward to sharing our progress and hoping for some moral support when I reach for that chocolate...or biscuits in my case! They are my weakness!xx

    Hiya hon! The pasta and sauce is 7.5 for the whole packet made without any milk and butter, I've come over from SW so have loads left in the cupboard so thought I would use it up! the macaroni cheese one only worked out at 6.5!! To be honest I would normally cook half the packet with lots of no point veg mixed in but I'm in such a mess at the mo as we are in the middle of getting the kitchen done lol! It is nice and filling though so I don't mind spending lots of points on it!!

    The Chinese rice is my fave, it doesn't really have a Chinese taste as such, it's hard to describe the taste really, the veggies are a bit crunchy and it has a bit of a tomato taste to it... all I can say is try it as it's gorgeous! I can't buy that one in the supermarket though, I have to get it from the bargain shops!

    Well done on your weight loss so far, you're doing so well! xx

    Hi Becky

    How's ww going?, have you found that your food has changed much from when you were on sw?
    I got some of the pasta n sauces today and had some for tea, forgot just how much I love the mild cheese and brocolli one!!

    I had a sneaky jump on the scales this morning, i have lost another 2 pounds and am at 10 stone 10. But I don't want to rely on that for Wednesday's wi as my bad week might be still to catch up on me!

    Hi Josie! Wow I hope you stay there for tomorrow that's a really great weight loss!! I have been trying to stick to SW foods as much as possible as I figured that they will be the most filling and will hopefully deter any binging! But it's also been really handy doing WW these past few weeks as I've been able to have more snacky things with us being kitchenless lol! Next week when I get the kitchen back I'm hoping to do some batch cooking so will be cooking some soups etc and having lots more veg!! I think I like being in control of what I eat and SW was scaring me a bit as it was a bit random, but like I said I will be returning once I'm happy with my weight! I think it's started coming off my legs now which I'm really happy about, going to start measuring them and next week going to start doing some lunges and squats lol!

    And guess what? I had a cream egg today lol! 3.5 pts so not bad if you eat 1 lol!! Will check on your diary tomorrow to see your official weigh in!! xx
