    in the book it gives you the points value for 3 points dried,then im sure when cooked it the same amount but you dont get much for your points value!;)

    Hey Minnie64 I'm on 17 points a day too! I'm enjoying my food loads, but I do find that once I've got my milk and 5-a-day in there isn't a lot left! I've been living on loads of veg/salad, quorn and low points snacks!!

    I'm on 18 points as I weighed in at 11.1 but come Tuesday evening that will change to 17. I have managed to save 6.5pts since Tuesday so I can have a drink over weekend. Used to drink wine or lager but changed to smirnoff vodka & diet coke as only ½ point per drink ;)
    I see you only have another 12lbs to goal - wow you must be feeling very pleased with yourself. My dinner this evening is 8½ points as I am having ww quiche and jacket pot so quite high this evening.
    Keep at it
