    Hi all,

    I'm new 2 WW and the forum.

    I joined WW on Monday. So far so good.

    My points allowance is 20 but I saw in the book that the fast start to boost your weight loss is 18 so I have been sticking to 18 for the last 2 days.

    If I go up to 20 next week will that make me gain?
    :confused:

    i dont think so -i started again on monday - im also allowed 20 points but always try and stick to 18.

    i did ww a year ago and lost 2 stone - and i still lost when i ate 18 or 20 - as long as you never go over your allowence you should be fine - i always find that having a few less helps me!

    try it and see - it wont make you gain when you have 20 but it might mean you lose a bit less than your first week - give it ago a kick start is always a good idea i think for your motivation as you will hopefully see a great loss in your first week and then you will be determined to stick to the plan!!!

    good luck xx

    I think I need all the support I can get!

    My WI day is Monday evenings.

    I seem to have done ok so far - I know its only been a few days. LOL.

    I lost 2 and a half stone on Slimming World so I'm used 2 stuffing my face and not having to count anything. But I reached a plateau and got very demotivated and put on 1 and a half stone. :(

    Thought it was time 4 a change!

    I've been ok on the 18 points but I previously done Slimming World so used 2 eating loads and not counting anything. So big change 4 me.

    I need all the support I can get!
