    Hi folks,

    I thought I would create a diary and share some of my experiences & menus, and hopefully pick up on some of your ideas too.

    I am a full time working mum, juggling housekeeping, work, family & weight watchers. So far, I have lost 25 pounds with 49 still to go. I don't look at what I have to lose but concentrate on what I have achieved. I would get depressed & give up if I was to dwell on the journey ahead of me!!

    So far, I have enjoyed the eating plan & it's flexibility, I think that is why I have found success with weight watchers.

    Anyway, now that you know a little about me, I hope to find out a little about you guys & hopefully find some minimin buddies too.

    I am on 30 pp's per day. I get weighed every Monday, so I will update my result tomorrow evening.

    Today I have had -

    Breakfast 6pp
    2 weetabix 3 pp's
    Milk 3 (for tea & coffee too)

    Lunch 11pp
    Salad 0 pp's
    Tuna light lunch 7 pp
    Marks & Sencer chilli prawns 3 pp
    Ww'er yogurt 1 pp
    Cherries 0 pp

    Dinner 8pp
    Cod 2 pp
    Sauce 2 pp
    Potatoes 4 pp

    Snack 5pp
    2 aero biscuits 5 pp

    Monday morning, the start of another week and my weeklies have been replenished. Yipeee!!
    I try to stay within my dailies through the week & keep my weeklies for the weekend where I can basically have what I want & not feel guilty :-D

    Tonight I start 7 nights of nightshift eurgh......... What I need to do is plan filling foods to keep me going right through until tomorrow morning. I take my dinner with me to work so I try to eat later in the day so I will last through the night. Every Monday I plan the week ahead, thinking through menus & going shopping for what I need.

    I have my weigh in later on too, so hopefully I have moved a little closer to my little target. I have set myself 1/2 stone targets, I think it's easier to focus on small achievements than look at the bigger picture. I have lost 1 stone 11 pounds so I am 3 lbs away from my next 1/2 stone.

    Today I will be having

    Breakfast (very late, didn't have it until 12.30) 6pp
    45g ready brek made with 200mls sk milk & 50 mls water (fills me up for ages) 6pp

    Mid afternoon 3pp
    Walkers baked crisps 3pp

    Tea time (which will be my lunch) 6pp
    Stuffed peppers 5pp
    Ww'er yogurt 1pp

    Dinner (around midnight) 15pp
    Fish, loads of potatoes & sauce with loads of veg 12pp
    Ww'er yogurt 1pp
    Fresh pineapple
    Morrisons fruit bar 2pp

    Total 30 pp - weeklies left 49

    I will edit this later with the results of my weigh in.
