    going over to WW from Jan 2013!
    :character00148: Just thought i would post a quick hello, i am one of those that has always struggled with my weight, and its definately getting harder as i get older!
    Anyhow, i have got to the point where i must do something, and yes, i have tried SW before, and also low carbing, but WW is the only one that works for me, as it controls portion sizes too.
    A long long time ago i managed to get down to under 10 stone doing WW, but sadly over the past few years the weight has gone back on, up, to almost the highest weight i have ever been.Have been having a look around here for about a week now, so its about time i said 'hello'! :wavey:
    Have been posting my food diarys on another WW forum that i found, but too be honest this one is a lot more busy and seems very friendly and helpful too, so will start to post my food diarys here every day.
    When i am at work my food during the day doesn't change very much , out of convenience and also laziness, it is basically my evening meals that differ daily, weekends are different of course, and i do often have a day off diet, but i try and save a few points along the way to allow for this! ;)
    I would love to lose about 3 stone, and to be totally honest, the charts would probably tell me that i should lose more than this, but that is my goal to begin with, more than good enough for me to begin with!
    I am going to weigh myself first thing on a Wednesday morning whenever possible, sometimes it will have to be a Thusday morning though.

    food sounds lush - how many points are you allowed a day?

    any chance you might post your pate recipe? i love pate and apart from the WW pate that i can hardly ever find, the rest seems quite high pointed :(

    Just worked out my daily points 'allowance', and it works out at 24, i know that during the week i will deliberately save up a few points each day when possible, so that i can have a few 'treats' at the weekend, which is what i am planning today actually(although i have only just started posting here i have been following WW for 2 weeks.

    I only weigh in myself at home, the problem is i live in a really old cottage with very wonky floor boards, so the scales are on a thick piece of wood in the corner of my bedroom.With my really early get ups this week(5 in the morning!) my OH would NOT apreciate me putting the lights on full blast so that i can read the scales, that said, i don't have Overtime tomorrow, so depending on what time he is up in the morning(it differs with him every day) i hope to be able to weigh myself tomorrow, if not it will be saturday morning!:wave_cry:

    glad to see that people are thinking my food diarys are ok, thought i may get told that i don't vary my food enough in the week at least, as i know that i stick to the same things more or less except for evening meal, but thats what works for me, so am gona be sticking to it!

    Saving up my extra points for tomorrow as i am out to lunch with 2 of my nieces, will be driving so will not drink except fizzy water, but food wise, who knows.
    That is why i have less points though in the week, so that i can have a more 'relaxed' time foodwise one day over the weekend, it is something to enjoy then without feeling guilty, as life is too short sometimes!
    Will try and remember to jump on the scales as soon as i 'leap' out of bed tomorrow morning, am glad in one way though that i have not been obsessive about weighing every day as i have done before many a time! So the longer i go without weighing is quite a good thing for me at least!

    well my weigh in this morning led to a 2 and half pound loss, had hoped for a bit more, but never mind!
    Today is my day this week for having the points i saved over the week, having lunch with 2 of my nieces, will be driviing though so that will cut down on the damage!
