    i wud try ebay. the only other way of doing it is asking on here, but the ww calulator is my most used gadget, i dont use the books much except the eating out guide which i use when i go out for lunch/dinner. im skint too but that one off £25 payment for the starter pack is alot cheaper than meetings etc

    You onyl need the calculator, and you really do need it. Online ones are no accurate and we cant point everything for you. Im also a student and dont pay for anything so i get where ya coming from!

    Theres no free way of doing it but if you invest in a calculator youll be fine. The Eating Out Guide is worth investing in, youll pick one of them up on ebay :)

    I'm not sure if they still do, but when I joined WW meetings in the past they gave you a introduction pack with everything in including the calculator. If you can join without a registration fee just go to the first week and then you've got it all.

    no, you don't get anything "free" now except the initial booklet and information which is included in the initial registration cost, everything else you have to buy x

    I dont want to invest in anything yet though til I see if the diet works for me at my weight etc
    Im having a blast of it starting today, using an online calculator which I know isnt really precise!
    Its telling me grapes are 1 point but I thought they were free?

    A calculator that doesnt have sat fat just isnt going to be accurate enough :(

    There are loads of calculators on ebay have you tried there, youll get one at a lot less than £15 :)

    Do any of the online ones have that?

    Do you think its a better idea to invest in the books or the calc if I can only afford one of the two atm?
