    Hi, I've recently returned to the discover plan, as I need to lose some weight, and the discover plan worked so well for me when I was younger, so here I am again... Finding this forum has helped me no end already, so thought if I put down what Im eating each day it might help me even more. I use a tracker sheet that I've put together myself, but if Im making mistakes with the points etc then someone might be able to put me straight.

    Main problem for me is I have ME, and as such am severely limited as to the amount of exercise I can (or cant) do. I spend most of the day sitting down or gently pottering around the house. I live with my daughter in law and 2 gorgeous little grandsons. My son is a live in chef who comes home on his days off. I rely on them for most things but Im helping my DIL with ww too, working at it together makes such a difference! She didnt believe that she could eat what she liked and still lose weight...so in ONE week I proved to her you can and you DO!

    If anyone has any advice about using weight watchers whilst being ill I would love to hear it. I lost 2lb this week. WI is Monday morning. I am allowed 27 points a day and want to lose LOTS!!! no rush for me, as long as I lose SOMETHING each week Ill be happy, especially as Im not active.

    Anyway... starting from Monday - Yesterday.

    Breakfast -

    2 slices danish toast & 2 tsp flora light - 2.5
    1/2 tin WW spaghetti - 1.5
    200mls OJ - 1.5

    100g prawns - 1

    Tuesday -

    Planned my meals for today so I know what Im doing.

    Gonna go for a short stroll later I hope, my DIL works in a nursery at the bottom of the road, so I try to walk down there when I can, gets me some fresh air and stops me going stir crazy...stir crazy = picking at food = NOT GOOD!!

    I struggle with breakfast, but Ive been making myself eat it, and had a healthier version of a good old fry up this morning, it was lovely and im still feeling full up so should be good til about 1.30 before having lunch :D

    Breakfast -

    2 healthy options bacon medallions - no fat on - 1
    2 pork chipolatas - 2
    2 danish toast with a little flora light - 2.5
    1/2 small tin of beans - 1
    mushrooms - 0

    6.5 points

    I had an egg white omelette the other day, with lots of onion and mushroom in, so no points, bit of black pepper and it was really tasty! I could eat that with a jacket spud and salad for a very low point dinner :)

    Lunch -
    tin of tuna - 2
    100g macaroni - 2.5
    sweetcorn - 0.5
    cucumber, spring onion, peppers - 0
    salad cream - 1tblsp - 1
    dinner -

    6 points

    birdseye breaded cod fillet - 5.5
    200g mash made with 2tsp flora light and 50 mls milk - 3
    35g peas - 0.5
    60g sweetcorn - 0.5
    salad - 0

    9.5 points

    22/27 so far..

    Mid afternoon snack -

    Asda vitality banoffee cereal bar - 1
    (these bars are YUMMY and are in lots of different flavours, all at 1 point per bar, satisfies that sweet craving and keeps me going til dinner time! Banoffee and apple & raspberry ones are my faves!)
    YUMMY!!

    23/27

    evening snack -

    2 ryvita thins - 1
    sour cream & chive dip - 1
    wafer thin ham - 1

    to get my points values I use my calculator and either go by whats already stored on it or (to be as exact as possible) go by each item's individual NI.

    total for the day - 26

    Morning! Im feeling really good today, hurty back and knee but my son is home for 2 days so thats made me feel loads better! Not seeing him for a few days while he is at work, he notices the difference in me...which is a boost!! I love seeing him and his boys together, they have such an amazing bond...I want to be able to watch them grow up, so thats inspiration and motivation for me to continue to lose the weight. Im a young nana, Im 37, and the eldest grandson is 2, I was a young mum, and my son was a young dad, but neither of us would change anything! I'm rambling...but if I cant speak my mind on here, where can I??? It has to help right???

    Anyway...On the menu today:

    Breakfast -
    2 danish toast - 2
    2 tsp flora light - 0.5
    1/2 small tin beans - 1
    apple & raspberry cereal bar - 1

    4.5

    Lunch -

    portion of home made minestrone soup - 1
    150g jacket spud - 1.5
    2 tsp flora light - 0.5
    100g prawns - 1
    1 tblsp cocktail sauce - 1

    5

    Dinner -

    half a portion of homemade leek and potato soup - 0.5
    DIL's homemade chicken curry (lush!! will post her recipe at some point) - 4
    uncle ben's boil in the bag rice - 3
    20g prawn crackers - 2

    9.5

    19/27 so far today and Im stuffed so will just wait and see if I fancy anything else later. Movie night tonight so might have some baked crisps or snackajacks....why?? because I CAN!! :D

    yoghurt and cereal bar - 2.5

    Morning!

    Had a good nights sleep fro a change, although I still feel like I could sleep for a week! Never mind, up and at 'em! Gonna go out for lunch today with my son, but will be careful cos Ive stayed on track this week and want that to continue. Ive worked out my days points and have got 16 I can have at lunchtime if I want...but Im gonna go for a warm salad I think so should keep the points fairly low. I dont get the chance to go out with my son very much so Im not gonna turn it down! Thats why I love WW so much, I can go out and not feel guilty.

    Anyway todays meals:

    Breakfast -

    30g ricicles and 125ml milk - 3

    Lunch -

    Fine dining lunch, no pud! - (will add later)

    Dinner -

    Homemade spag bol sauce - 18pts for the whole thing so 4.5pts for 1/4 (will probably have less than 1/4 but overpointing a bit is good :) )
    100g mac - 2.5
    sprinkle ww cheese - 1

    Im feeling pretty good this week, as long as I am positive in my mind, I can't go wrong...just have to make sure I dont beat myself up if I stay the same at wi on Monday...even staying the same is a result for me...mustnt forget that!

    Have a good day everyone :)

    Lunch was lovely...tried to go careful and pick the best options, the portion sizes are really small as it was fine dining, but I came away feeling full, and didnt even get tempted to have a pud :party0049:. I had garlic mushrooms ( not breaded, just sauteed in garlic, with a few small cubes of brie and some salad leaves)
    For main I had a small duck breast on some egg noodles and with an orange and soy sauce. I think that was a sensible option, I had allowed myself 15 points and I really dont think it was that high. Ill try and not have any snacks today to make sure.

    to be honest though, I dont really mind as I got to have a really nice lunch with my son before he goes back to work tonight :( so it was worth any extra points!

    1/2 small tin of beans - 1.5

    3.5

    Its official, I have the BEST DIL ever!!! bless ehr, she cooked my dinner tonight, while I was running errands for my son. She is doing discover with me, so I knew she would keep a track, but she made the most delicious cottage pie, using mashed bns instead of potato, with roasties, yorkie puddings, veg and gravy and all for........ just 8.5 points!!

    It was so yummy, Im stuffed!
    total today is 17/26 pts so I can have a treat later if I can fit anything else in!!

    Saw my son today, who I havent seen since Friday, and he said he could see a difference...he was probably just being nice but it gave me a boost!

    busy prepping for a family bbq today, so had a small brekkie so that I can have *what I want* for dinner...

    Ive got lots of bns and courgette ready for roasting, some chicken breast kebabs with lots of peppers and onions, so I shouldnt be bothered about the sausages and burgers. Lots of salad, gonna be lovely :D

    breakfast:

    yoghurt - 1.5
    small banana - 1

    2.5

    lunch / dinner

    bbq - the rest of my dailies no doubt hehe!
