    Welcome to WW Madness - I would say first off that you should use up your points as not using them could result in no loss at all.

    Curly Wurlys are 2.5pts if you fancy a nice treat.

    2 squares of chocolate (approx 14gm) = 1.5pts

    ive eaten loades today but ive only used 13 points... think ive been a bit scared of using to many points during the day as im working a night shift tonight, Ive eaten lots tho but alot of free foods.. i spose the longer i do it the easyier it will be to know how much i can eat a spread my points out wisely!

    hi caspa and :welcome: to the forums and to WW! Just wanted to reiterate what others have said make sure you eat all of your points otherwise you may STS which I did last week because I did not eat them all!

    Curlywurlys (2.5pts), Milkyways (1.5pts) and calippo's (1.0pt) are my treats of choice!

    Welcome and congrats on beginning WW. I’m sure you’ll do well. I’m on week 2 of WW and finding the longer I do this, the more I learn about spreading points thought the day and what foods give me the most band for my buck with the points.

    Hey Caspa :welcome: I joined ww Monday just gone so I am on my fourth day :D so far so good... I have tried WW before and fallen at the first hurdle :eek: but this time it just seems to have all fitted into place.

    1 thing I have found really usefull is the points calculator, really handy to have when doing the shopping I was working pts values out before putting it in the trolley and a few things didnt make it to the trolley :giggle: and like I had promised my DD a Mcdonalds and where I would have usually had a Quarter Pounder with Cheese Medium Meal with Fanta 19pts :wow: I opted for the Cheeseburger, Small Fries and Diet Coke for 9pts.

    Really looking forward to Mondays weigh in :D lets hope it is a good one.

    Good Luck XX

    Thank you everyone for your kind words, Going to try really hard to have all my points... My weighins are on a Monday to but may have to juggel my meetings about a bit due to working long hours and diffrent days every week, I really hope ive lost weight, working nights alot at the mo not sure how to work my points out, do you think as i get to midnight they go on to the next day? not sure how i would do it for example i woke up at half 9 yesterday started as normal everything i ate went on my food diary till i left work at 8am this morn.. prob wont sleep till this eve should i do it from midnight in future?
    :D
