    Hi,

    I just re-joined weight watchers this week for the third time. Lost 13lb the first time (joining weight 11st 9.5lbs), lost about the same the second time (joining weight 15st 2lbs) and this week joined again at 15st 1.5lbs.

    I have come to realise that my eating is def emotional and down to boredom and the realisation that I'm not happy with my life.

    It's hard for me to discuss this with my nearest and dearest, they wouldn't understand, had so much rubbish this year with my family and my problems would just be more to add on top.

    I really need to make some changes in my life, starting here and starting with my weight and I've read tonnes of your posts today and can see this is the best place to get the support I need.

    Looking forward to making some positive changes.

    Helen xx

    Welcome and wishing you loads of luck, are you going to be doing the new propoints plan?
    I am also an emotional eater and have yo yo'd with my weight for many years.....it will always be a battle but certainly the last 3-4 years of accepting myself and my own issues has been a revelation :)
    If you need any help / advise please feel free to ask

    Thank you loopylou, I have been reading your food diaries and you are an inspiration.

    I am doing the propoints plan, however I haven't got off to a very good start, the day I joined I had a very sore throat and have had a stinking cold ever since so I haven't really eaten much!

    I'm also struggling to work out points on stuff as my leader doesn't have a chip & pin machine and didn't have enough cash on me to buy the calculator lol

    Thanks again for the words of encouragement :)

    Still struggling to work out the points on stuff with the little book in the folder and the paper "calculator".

    Can't wait til Wednesday when I can get WI and buy a proper calculator!

    Not been too bad today although got the munchies so just been snacking on fruit, so glad its zero PP now.

    I'm trying the Mexican Beef Pan Fry for dinner tonight so hope it turns out ok and doesn't give me indigestion as most things do!!

    Hope everyone else is having a good day :)

    Hey chick, thought I'd pop over and have a peek at your diary:D

    How you getting on? It takes a bit of getting used to as I am so used to the old plan, but I have to say I prefer the pp plan as it's a lot more flexible and I haven't been anywhere near as hungry as I was on the old plan:D

    Hope you manage to get your calculator this week:rolleyes:

    Good luck for this week - when do you have your WI?:)

    xx

    Hi sukibix

    I totally agree, I've done the old plan for so long this is really gonna take some getting used to lol

    I'm not doing too bad, joined on Wednesday night and was full up with a cold for about 3 days so didnt even eat much and I've had a really busy day at work so not had time for brekkie today!

    I had a sneaky peek on the scales this morning and I'm showing a loss so here's hoping :)

    WI is weds night but I'm more looking forward to getting the calculator and as if they knew, my kitchen scales (ww points ones from 2005) broke so guess I need more lol early Xmas prezzie me thinks :p

    Thanks for the msg xx

    Have you got an i-touch? I found the WW mobile UK app last night, it's the official WW one and it logs u onto the WW website and brings up the tracker and you get the calculator too! It's free which is a mega bonus so I didn't bother buying the calc at my class tonight. Obviously if you don't have an i-touch you will still want to buy the calc lol. :D

    Good luck for WI tomorrow and let us know how you get on. x x x

    Well another busy day at the office and no time for breakfast again!

    I know brekkie is important but I can't eat first thing, if I do then 9 times out of 10 I get indigestion so tend to wait til about 9.30-10 or sometimes later, by which time I'm in work so if I'm busy or got meetings I don't get time!

    Lunch
    1/2 pot glorious food chunky tomato and chorizo soup - 4pm
    Apple - 0pp
    Satsuma - 0pp

    Dinner
    Chicken breast - 4pp
    Broccoli - 0pp
    Carrots - 0pp
    Roasted squash - 0pp
    Gravy made with 1tsp granules - 0pp

    I haven't really planned properly this week and that is only 8pp I've had today! :-O

    I was originally only joining ww again to get the stuff on the new plan and was gonna go it alone but since today's release of the amazing new app, I've just signed up for monthly pass so no excuses now :)

    Hope I get a good result tomorrow :)

    Hello Ladies

    I have done weight watchers a few times over the years and have always had success with it. Since hearing about the pro plan I am very keen to give it a go so am going to join on Friday. I was going to wait until after Christmas but I am so heavy right now its making me feel really depressed and I know that just losing the first few pounds will make me feel better.

    I did join slimming world a few weeks ago and after week of eating food I don't really like and only losing 1lb I didn't bother going back.

    I am an emotional eater and am always snacking when I'm bored. Its got loads worse since I moved in with my boyfriend. We have been together for 16 months and I weighed around 15 stone when we met and now I'm almost 18 stone (can't believe I just wrote that - so ashamed).

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to learning about pro points and shifting the pounds (or stones more like). I absolutely have to stick to it this time as one of my best friends is getting married in August and I am a bridesmaid. The bridesmaids dresses are from Karen Millen which only go up to a (small) size 16 and I am currently a size 20.

    I have a lot of work to do but I am determined to do it. Wish me luck

    Hi star,

    I completely understand where u r coming from, I've been with my fella for 10 years now and I was a size 8/10 when we got together (not sure how heavy coz never had to weigh myself) and in the first year I went to a size 14, then 16 then I joined ww for the first time at 11st 9.5lbs. I lost 13lbs over a few weeks but I'd been made a helper at my class and lost my determination to keep going.

    This is my third time and I joined at 15st 1.5lbs and I'm a size 20/22 :-(

    Hopefully this will be third time lucky for me xx

    Here's to another good week :D

    Hey miss!!

    Just thought I'd pop by and say hi!!

    I'm with you on the emotional eating!! Although I'm sure I'm a fraud, as I have very little to be flipping emotional about!! Perhaps it's more boredom eating...or both!!

    I'm starting afresh again, trying propoints, and hoping the change and kick up the bum is what I need!!

    Well done on your first loss, hope I can do similar!!

    :eek:)
