    Hi Marie,

    Thanks so much for the tip.. I have just tried to email you back but they don't have your email on file so I'm hoping you will see this message for you!

    I was actually quite lucky anyway with WW as I have previously been an online customer they waivered the registration fee anyway, so am only paying £9.95 per month too.. thanks so much for letting me know anyway!

    I am really enjoying WW - how about you? I feel in control and very happy to be eating such good healthy food. How about you how are you getting on?

    Ah, that's good that you didn't have to pay the registration fee then - I remembered you saying that you'd signed up on line so I thought I'd let you know just in case.

    I love ww too, it's such an easy way of dieting, mainly because nothing's forbidden! I couldn't do a diet where you can't have treat or two (or ten as the case may be, ha ha).

    How are you getting on with the weight loss? What day do you weigh in? Would love to see how you're getting on.

    Well I've decided to have my weigh-in day as Friday, simply because that's how my online thing is set and I can't work out how to change it haha! Anyway I was faffing around a bit until today so am happy to wait another whole week before weighing.

    I am not expecting much, in fact I will probably put a few lbs on especially in this first week. But the main thing is that I know I am eating healthily and propery and not having the falseness of the Cambridge packs. I was very eager to eat tons of fruit and veg and that's exactly what I'm doing - I had forgotton how delicious they are!!!!!!

    Well done on your 5lbs loss - brilliant!

    Ah thanks, I was really pleased with my 5lb, I just hope I can keep it up.

    I'm not surprised you're enjoying your fruit and veg - I expect card board would taste good after those ghastly cd packs, ha ha ha!

    hehe there're actually not that bad - I know suprising isn't it! I am sort of combining CD with WW which works well as the packs are quite filling and stuffed full of nutrients - plus at only 2 points each even better :D

    So for brekky I've had a CD hot chocolate with coffee in (got to have my morning coffee!) which should keep me filled up till lunchtime now.. I've got some 0 point soup for lunch - absolutely delicious even my small children adore it! (actually it's got lentils in so probably 1 or 2 points maximum for that).. then a big chicken salad or something for dinner yommy yommy yom!!

    What sort of meals do you have?

    I actually tried CD myself once but I didn't even manage 3 days! I wasn't hungry - which surprised me, but I just couldn't stand the taste of the shakes! I tried a soup (I think it was chilli?) and OMG is was foul!! On day 2 I only had 2 shakes because the third one made me literally gag and on day 3 I could only stomach 2 again - it was the texture of them I think - I just couldn't eat/drink them, they were horrible (apart from the strawberry and banana shakes - they were bearable).

    I love ww because I can still have whatever I want to eat, just in moderation. I make the same sort of meals I've always made for dinners (ie, sausage casserole, chilli, curry etc) because my other half still eats with me (I can't be bothered to make different meals for each of us) I just make low fat options now instead.

    I like my snacks too, so I still have them I just have the low point alternatives instead (ie walkers lites or wotsits) and I usually just have some toast or soup or something for lunch. I've never really eaten breakfast, but I do try and have something now - usually a mullerice or something.

    What sort of meals are you planning on eating when you're on ww full time?

    well as you say the beauty of ww is that you can basically eat the same food as you have always done but the lower points version.. so last night we had sweet & sour chicken stir fry (with tons of veg) i didn't have any rice and used healthy option sweet & sour.. it was yummy, so nice also to be able to join in with family mealtimes, i have a hubby and 2 small children and i think it's good to be eating together.

    i made some very low point soup yesterday and have had that for lunch today - delicious! the kids and hubby love it too - i just add some grated cheese on top for them but i love it without anyway.

    obviously smaller portion sizes are a major issue here too.. i am feeling very full though even though i am eating nothing like i used to.. although i suppose i'm used to having 6 points a day on cambridge haha!
