Hey peoples....I am gonna start counting points today and see how it goes....cant get to a meeting until Thursday week, so I'm kinda just gonna have to wing it until then:sigh:

ANYWAY....my questions are....

Chicken Breast Fillets: Do you point them raw or cooked? I have some frozen ones defrosting in the fridge for a stir fry later on... (by the way, when I was buying them I bought Lakeland as they were lower in cals & sat fat then the Tesco HL ones...how bizarre?!)

Rice: Again, do we point pre cooked weight or cooked weight?

The stir fry veggies I am ok with lol

Also....

What do you guys generally have for breakfast? I am this morning going to have a HUGE mug of tea and a bagel with Tesco EL cream cheese...gonna try NOT to slice my finger off this morning when cutting the bagel:rolleyes: :cry: :cry: :cry: OK, I dint slice it off yesterday, but came toooo close:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I think the bagels are 2.5 points each..

Last time I did WW, I cant remember what I had for breakfast, and because I;ve been faffing about with CD for so long now, I have kinda been having packs in the mornings so am kinda outta ideas

I'm gonna go work out my points allowance now...someone kindly posted info on a thread I started ages ago so gonna go find it!

Thanx guys...

Chicken breasts are generally pointed at 2.5 points each.

I think bagels are actually 3 or 4 points, depends on the one you have.

Rice always confuses me. I'm off out now, but when I get back I'll try and help properly! :D

Karen, for the points allowance,

The info I have here says:

women

If you weigh under 10 stone -start each day with 18 points
10 - 12 stone - start each day with 20 points
12 - 14 stone - start each day with 22 points
14 - 16 stone - start each day with 24 points
16 - 18 stone - start each day with 26 points
18 - 20 stone - start each day with 28 points
more than 20 stone - start each day with 20 points

hope this helps!

Best of luck xx

They've changed this now Nikki. It's worked out as follows:

Male = 9 points
Female = 3 points

Age

16-20 = 5 points
21-35 = 4 points
36-50 = 3 points
51-65 = 2 points
over 65 = 1 point


How many stone you weigh ignoring the lbs ?

Example 13st 4lbs = 13

Main occupation

Mostly sitting down = 0
Occasionly sitting but mainly standing = 2
Walking most of the time = 4
Doing physical hard work = 6


An extra 1 point for under 5' 4 and 2 if over 5'4

If you want to:
lose weight = 0
maintain weight = 6

Okay so rice:

White or Brown, cooked, 1 medium portion (150g) = 3 points
White or Brown, dried, 1 medium portion (60g) = 3 points


I have to admit that I don't weigh my chicken, I just assume 1 chicken breast = 2.5 points.

Chicken Breast, skinless, uncooked, 1 medium (165g) = 2.5 points

Chicken, roast, 1 medium slice (30g) = 0.5 points


For breakfast I'm really boring, I always seem to have cereal and fruit - although this week I am going to try different cereal and different fruit, I live the rock and roll life I do! You could have toast, banana on toast is lovely, scrambled egg and baked beans, or bacon, or an omlette. The list is endless.

Unfortunately I'm always in a rush of a morning so I don't do cooked breakfasts! lol

I hope that helps though. :D

Oh thank you Sparkle!! - I got such a fright there for a second - thought I had been eating the wrong amount each day for the past two weeks!! but worked it out and it equals the same - phew!!

No problem Nikki, although part of me wishes I could go back to the old way - I'd be eating an extra point a day! ;)

Glad that it still works out the same for you though! :D

Yum yum yum!! I was in Tesco and to be honest was mega confuzzled by the bacon...there was some on offer 2 for £3, its called 'Brilliant Bacon' but everything was per 100g so I left it! How lazy am I lol
