    I really like it! So far, I'm not eating as healthily as I could be, especially as I'm going back to uni soon, so trying not to go to the supermarket that much.

    But I'm within my points, so I'm very happy!

    1 points left over - found it extremely difficult to use all points today, leading to my massive snacking fest at the end of the day!

    EDIT: Just remembered that I had 2 sesame coated caramel cashews as well, but the packet did not have saturated fat on it, so couldn't work out points, I'll count that as 0.5 then :)

    Looking good :D
    If the sat fat isnt listed then halve the fat content and use that figure x

    Normal cashews are 10 for 1pt so you will definatly have covered the 2 :cool:

    I'm such a grazer - it makes me feel better eating little and often. Before WW, I used to try and eat three big meals, but now, I realise that could have been doing me more harm than good!

    Today was the first real struggle I've had to stay within my points...planning is the key! I was constantly sooo hungry today...neeeed to plan tomorrow! 2 points saved so far.

    Thanks for the encouragement! :) I just hope I can keep it up!

    I'm not eating very healthily at the moment as I'm trying to use up most of the food in the cupboards before I go to back to uni next week. Hopefully once I'm there, I'll get into the habit of batch cooking more healthy meals :)

    OK, so I will probably find some way of using up the rest of my points up to the value of 17. Would be lovely if I could save 4 today, though 2 would be fine as the minimum. Will hopefully be getting some exercise as I need to go shopping for back to uni stuff :) Yay for books ;)

    I also need to stop eating so many carbs! Not enough protein - this will have to change soon, especially if I'm to start working out!
