    Well.... I've been looking around the site and it's already made me determined to start my journey and turn myself from a big fat caterpillar to a lovely little flutterby!
    I'll try not to bore you all with my ramblings and wittering but would be very grateful if you could call in from time to time to give me a kick up the bum that I'm sure I'll need along the way.
    The main reason for starting this journey is for my children... having a 5 year old at school and a 2.5 year old I need to do it for them as to give them a mummy to be proud of.
    The second reason is for me... I don't want to be fat for the rest of my life! I want to enjoy clothes shopping instead of dreading an event where I need to buy a new outfit and suffer in the changing rooms of New Look whilst feeling fatter than ever.
    The third reason is my relationship... I want my OH to have a GF he can be proud of... he says he is but hey if I had a GF like me I sure wouldn't be proud!

    So I'll be here most days with a bit of my story to tell and I'll be attending my first class on Thursday night!

    Thanks all for reading... f you have got to this point and I haven't bored you already x

    I'm feeling very nervous today.... its nearly thursday!!!
    I am rearing to go and even noticed my eating habits have changed just over the last few days... sounds silly but I went to Maccy D's yesterday whilst out shopping and I really didn't want anything... and that is a big shock to my own system! lol
    I bought some ww carrot cake slices and oh my they were delicious! i thought they would be dry and awful but they were really nice and 1 slice was enough as I found the topping quite sweet and sickly.
    So no matter how nervous I get I'm going to force myself to get in there and get rid of this horrendous chub!

    well I've done it! I've been to the group!
    the group is quite small, the leader is lovely but no one else spoke to me and it was clear that there were 3 'groups' of people but it was ok. the leader explained everything to me and it seems quite clear but will sit down tomorrow after work and plan the rest of the week. im already nervous for weigh in next week, just hope i can do this! x

    Take my word for it, if you follow it correctly you will loose.

    You have probably had it drilled in to you but track, track, track. My trick is if I am out the house and don't have my tracker with me I put the points down on my phone and fill it in when I get back. This is priceless for me as I can have a memory like a goldfish!

    Planning it out is also good. I know how many points I want to use for breakfast, lunch, evening meal, supper and snacks and think about these every Sunday before I pop to Tesco for stuff for the week.

    Good luck, and if you do follow it correctly I'm sure you will be fine :)

    3 ryvita sesame seeds things with cottage cheese and raw carrot sticks (3.5)
    a bag of snack a jacks (2)

    Hey Nettie,

    Thought I'd pop in as you took the time to read through my diary. Sounds like you're going good, not 100% about points so don't rely on me on that front but I'm sure someone more knowledgable will come along and point it out if you slipped up! WW is pretty easy as long as you follow it you will get there...

    Hope you're ok...

    on the way to get the car part im going to plan what were having for dinner/tea and hopefully try a ww recipe... any suggestion of a nice one would be great please?

    fitz Lovin it !!! :)

    can't really help I'm afraid as could eat double my points in a day no problem.

    Maybe substitue low fat stuff for everyday ones to boost the points but not the quantity if you are struggling.

    Whatever you are eating write it down here too for the next couple of days so we can see what you are doing and could maybe help :)

    Hi Nettie

    You need to eat your points or at least only 4 points under for WW to work. It sounds strange but its true. As puggso says its very important to get it planned out and written down especially at the beginning. I know when you're busy it can be a right pain but just think of it as a necessary evil until it comes as secomd nature to you. Breakfast is also difficult if you don't normally have it but it is another thing that is an essential part of kick starting your metabolism for the day.

    Good luck I'm sure you'll do just great

    give it a week Nettie and you'll be wishing you had a few more points! xxx

    wow Nettie, I wish I felt like that about my points. I struggle to keep within them lol

    puggso_32 Right to the 'point'

    ...but why did you just remember? Wasn't it written down?

    That is why I labour the whole 'track' thing (I know I must sound like a leader or something but it works) to others. If you don't have the tracker with you - ie I never take mine out the house - put what you have had in a note on your mobile, or if your phone doesn't have that then do it as a saved unsent text.

    A large banana will be 1.5 points too.
