    Well armed with only a WW Calculator I intend to make a real go of the WW regime starting tomorrow morning.

    The calculator is old - one I had from when I went to class about 5 years ago will it still be accurate or out of date?

    Are there any foodie 'must have's' you can recommend as I'm going to do THE BIG SHOP this afternoon :D

    P.S. Dreading getting on those scales in the morning :cry:

    Hello good choice to go for WW i love the plan, i would say pop into poundland as they have 'snack foods' at £1.00 all low in points e.g crisps, bars, pasta sauces, biscuits, soups.!

    And all of these are low in points nice to still have a treat everyday i say.
    And the calculator should be fine hun they have upgraded in december just a newer look one really.

    Stock up on water too drink plenty.

    Good luck x

    I started again a couple of weeks ago and i'm not going to the meetings. I use a calculator i downloaded off the net and this website. The support on here is brilliant. Some essentials i get in each week are:

    Pink n whites 0.5pts each
    Rich teas 0.5pts each
    Wafer thin ham 0.5pts for 5 slices
    I can't believe it's not butter light 0.5pts for 10g (i think)
    Kingsmill 50/50 crustless 0.5pts for 1 slice, 1.5pts for 2.
    Laughing cow extra light cheese triangles 3 for 1pt

    Hope this helps!

    If you're not going to a class (as I am doing it) I think you must do two things:

    1. make sure you make your own tracker and always fill it in

    2. Get someone independent to weigh you and weigh you once a week only (I get a guy from work to weigh me)
