    went to the meeting today, turns out it s a new meeting which is great as we are all starting (or restarting :eek: for me) together.

    I was 11,9.5 on the ww scales and the leader who seems very nice has suggested i go for 10% first which is 10,7 so must change my ticker to that

    I can have 22 points and after looking at the kickstart program i am not sure whether to go for that for a couple of weeks on only 18 points

    after doign cambridge i dont want a diet that feels like i am punishing myself so think i might go for the 22 points and guess it might take a bit longer.

    Hi Hun

    Im on ww at the moment. I started a few times before before xmas but it was only half hearted BUT I restarted on thursday as my meeting was wednesday night.

    Its a great diet once you get into knowing what your points are!

    Good luck.

    xx

    veg lasagne sounds lovely hunni. I made some pasta last night and it was delicious.

    80g pasta = 4 points
    tomato passata, onions, mushrooms = free
    garlic = 1/2 point
    1 tbsp healthy living soft cheese (garlic & herb) = 1 point

    so for 5 1/2 points really I had a decent sized meal and it was delicious!! TRY IT!

    thanks guys, thats cheered me up thinking somone else has read my ramblings lol

    feeling fed up because the friend who usually upsets me has done it again :-( oh well, shouldnt expect anything other than that, dd is still not sleeping through - we are now on day 14 of the no sleep situation here at chez ginger

    sooooooooooooooo coming on here and seeing you guys saying hi has made me not go and eat the huge choco muffin my mum just dropped round for me "to cheer me up"

    emma is now playuing in her room and i think we'll have a cuppa and some jaffa cakes in a bit as our afternoonsies before daddy comes home from work and i have planned to make pasta bologniase for tea, 7 points.

    i am using the esource thing online which i get free cos i signed up for the monthly pass - its brilliant cos i can type in all my own made up recipes and it gives me the points without having to fiddle aorund the with the slidey calculater thing.

    thanks paula

    huby took them in his lunch today so they will be gone by tonight as all his mates will happily help him eat them, had another okay day today and have realised i have saved 10.5 points so far this week - not sure whether to spend them or not

    Sounds like you're doing really well - well done on resisting those muffins! I would never have been able to do that, and I don't mind admitting it, lol.

    When's your weigh day?

    hi its not til saturday

    and i just had a terrible shock, i had been saving up my points for the end of the week thinking i can have fish and chips and i just found out you can only save 12 in a week - which means i have left points uneaten that i can now not carry over - so it was totally not worth feeling hungry!

    well done on not eating the muffin!!! that was brilliant!.

    Sorry to hear your friend upset you - are you ok???

    How old is your little one?

    ok, I dont want to advise you wrongly and dont know if I should say this, but I have been doing ww since last April and I have never went by the only saving 12 a week thing. I have saved up to 21 (for my dominos pizza!! - a whole one :D) most weeks and it hasnt made a bit of difference to my losses - Ive always lost the same (once keep to my allowance) so, I personally wouldnt worry about it - it is up to you though, and a very personal choice pet!!!

    yep - a average bag of chips is 7.5 and a medium cod in batter is 7.5 so 15 altogether!!

    I'm with Nikki, so long as I've saved points then I use them, and when I did ww last year I quite often saved more than 12 points for a night out or a treat and so long as I was still within my points I never found it affected my losses. However, if you would prefer to stick to the official ww advice, then you can still save those 12 points and then you only have to use another 3 of your daily points for your fish and chips...so you can still have them, which is of course the main thing, lol!
