    I am a convert to Weight Watchers after trying unsuccessfully to follow the Slimming World plan. (No criticism of SW, it just didn't work for me, I was just eating far too much!). Having lost 3 stone after the birth of my son some 19 years ago, and keeping it off for several years, I know I can shift this 2 stone if I commit to Weight Watchers.

    So, here goes for day one:

    20 point allowed:

    Breakfast:
    Porridge = 1.5
    1 tsp sugar = 0.5
    Semi skimmed milk = 1

    Snack
    Packet of Quavers = 1

    Lunch:
    W/W soup = 2
    Ryvita x 4 = 2
    Low fat cheese triangles x 2 = 1
    Activia strawberry yoghurt = 1.5

    Snack:
    Apple = 0.5

    Dinner:
    W/W meal = 4.5
    Sweetcorn = 1
    Jacket potato = 2.5

    Drinks, diet coke, black decaf coffee throughout the day.

    Total point for the day = 19
    Exercise = 15 mins on rebounder

    Day one seems to have gone OK, here's to tomorrow!

    Welcome to WW! I also changed over from SW, after a few weeks calorie counting in between :)
    3rd week on WW, and Im still not hungry so something must be going right!
    Keep at it :D

    Good luck with this Elkay! I am also starting WW properly and you have my sympathies, god knows how you manage on 20 pts per day! I am on 34 and sometimes struggle!

    Also, I think you are being a bit hard on yourself with 6 prawn crackers making 3.5 points. I believe a whole bag is 'only' 5!

    Tuesday 15th December

    Well, I have been very bad today! It was our Christmas lunch at work and as I completely lost track of what I ate, I can't count my points today! I know I must have gone over my points but hey, it's Christmas! I'm not attending a class and, as my weight loss is always really slow, I am not weighing myself every week as I get very demotivated when I either lose only a pound or STS. Hopefully, I will be able to pull back the points over the next week to make up for today!

    Here's to a good day tomorrow!

    I think having a day off, or a relaxed day is fine :D Infact, I think its definitely healthy, at this time of the year too :D
    [I'm justifying it to myself as well as you, hahaha]

    Keep smiling :D and have an ace ace day tomorrow. I think you should write it all down, even if you end up going over a couple - Its too easy to fall into the not-writing trap... Experience speaking there!! x
