Desserts...

#1
Before I ask this question! For the hardcore healthy eaters, look away now, hehe.

I KNOW that ww is a change for life, and I know that involves making some changes, but..

Just wondered if anyone ate WW desserts as part as their point scheme? I really have an awful sweet tooth & have had one dessert daily after my evening dinner for the last two days (ww desserts) fitting them into my points. I know they are pre-made rubbish, but if it keeps me on the straight & narrow..Just wondered if you think this will affect my weight losses? xxxx

i dont eat ww desserts but i do have a dessert every night after my dinner.

I have
Crunchies Ice Cream Bars 3.5
Munchies Ice Cream Bar 4
Fruit and natural yogurt 4

There are also some ice creams that are quite good. There is Morrisons ones in oval tubs with the bits on the top, they are usual in the 2 for £3 offer. They range from 99 to 115KCal per 100g with low sat fat. I find that i can usual have about 3-4points and feel satisfied.

Thanks Chrissy :eek:

Sounds silly but when you've done Slimming World for a while actually being able to eat things like ww desserts/ice cream bars & lose weight seems out of this world.

:) xx

I tried SW too before WW and i struggled with the rigid guidelines.

WW is definitely good. Have you got the calculator and kitchen scales. i would recommend you get these if you havent as it makes pointing easier.

I've only been doing the diet since yesterday - and have been using online resources etc for points and sticking to non-weighing items just until tommorow evening when I join the classes.
I was meant to be going to slimming world this morning but have made them aware I've switched - so once I have all my books tommorow etc, I'm doing a big shop thursday (including scales etc).x

Well i hope it works out well. I think it is easier to follow than most diets. But it can take a bit of getting used too.

Are you trying to lose a lot?

I'm at 14st 5lbs right now but wanting to make 9st 7ish. Ive been right upto 18st 10lbs but actually lost 2 stone whilst pregnant at the beginning also.
Are you in this for the long haul too? :D

Yep

I started on 25/01/2010 at 17stone 12lbs - i am now 15stone 9lbs

i wanna be around 11stones i think possibly a bit lower depending on the way i look.

size 12 clothes would suit me to a tee

Thank you

I dont wanna aim too low incase i dont get there. I will probably set another goal once i get to a size 12
That's what I've done now lol, i didn't realise i would be in a size 12 so quickly thought I'd have to wait till around 11st .. which i suppose may be the case for the bottom half! lol... but I've now set a goal for size 10 as some i can fit in ok now, it's all about what feels right for you i guess :) 11st is my goal.. but like you will probably take it a lil lower afterward just in case i do go on a binge occasionally and the weight edges up a little :D

oh and eddiesmum don't worry if there is a dessert you fancy which isn't WW many members don't like the WW ones and just find their own! :) you will be surprised what you can still have even on WW with the puds! :D Cadburys light trifles are one of my favs! hehe

WW puds are brilliant :) We buy the odd 3 pointer dessert, but mainly stick to the WW eclairs at 1.5pts each - they are great for pudding! I would recommend :D you'll find them in the freezer section at any supermarket!

Tesco Mousses in the freezer part, you get a pack of 8 lil ones they do chocolate and raspberry ripple ones... dunno about raspberry but brought the chocolate ones today and only 1.5points :D

I have Puds all the time, it really helps me to stay on track. I've actually been off plan for a few months but weighed myself today and haven't gained a single pound back!!!! WooHoo!!!!

A dessert I love is some sort of berries (I use raspberries and/or strawberries) served with plain fat free fromage frais with sweetener mixed in. You get a dessert glass and layer the berries, fromage frais mixture and 2 crumbled mini meringue nests. Do a couple of layers of each. Sometimes I pop a squirt of low-fat squirty cream on top too (add points accordingly). You can do a large dessert of this for around 1.5 to 2points and it tastes so creamy, rich and indulgent!
Fat free Fromage frais(0.5)
2 x mini meringue nests(0.5)
Sweetener(0)
Berries(0.5)
Total=1.5!!!!


Various Ice-cream desserts are great.

I also love a childhood favourite of banana custard!
A sliced banana(1.5) with a warmed individual low fat ambrosia custard pot on top(1.5)

Sometimes I'll melt a few squares of chocolate in the microwave and serve it with various sliced fruits which I then dip in the choccy while it's still warm...yum!
These desserts are all really easy!

I have the WW desserts sometimes too! I have a really sweet tooth and these feel like I'm not missing out.....

Bought meringues today too so going to have one of those shortly with some strawbs and a strawberry mini milk in the bowl too mixed - low points and tasty!

Lots of ice lollies are fairly low points too - Fab lollies only 1.5 points each!

I also still have treats like fudges, kit kats etc. 2.5 points each but feel like I'm not eating some rubbish low cal thing - lol. It's all about tricking myself...
