    I am giving up pro points and going back to discover so I don't want to spent £20 per month just to get weighed. But I dont' want to slip back either. How do all of you manage to stay on plan without going to a meeting. I have all my discover materials and loads of cookbooks and recipes so that is not a problem.
    I need some support on this - should I do it ?

    I am doing exactly the same and I am thinking about giving up the meetings as I am paying £24 a month to just stand on a set of scales even though I have some weight Watchers precision scales myself witch I paid £40 for!! So I know where your coming from, I think it is possible as not everyone goes to meetings to lose weight but the only reason why I would go is because it keeps me focused more, so yeah deffo give it a go and see how you get on :)

    I spend 50p a week at Boots and use their accurate weighing scales. Of course, I have my own (albeit more unreliable) scales at home for day to day tracking, but I only count my 'official' weigh ins at the chemist.

    There's something about going out to be weighed that I really enjoy and look forward to. This kind of spurs me on!

    My dilemma is that I go with a friend and I feel I'm letting her down.... Even tho she's come back to discovery after a rubbish few weeks on pp. My leader doesn't like that I'm doing the old plan so I doubt she'll miss me.....lol

    I have truly found that registering on here, with like-minded people willing me on has been so much more help than any meeting I've attended where the same excuses crop up week-in, week-out!!

    You're paying good money to go to the meetings.
    She may not have to like it, but she should show as much support and guidance as she can. After all, the discovery plan should be well and truly in her veins!

    Hi vijch50, I only started 2 weeks ago, but I use my WiiFit to weigh myself 'officially' once a week and I keep a record of everything I consume on a spreadsheet, keeping a list of regular recipes. Each day I find it a bit easier to recall the points values of things.. I'm hoping over time it will become second nature!

    Good luck! The people here are really supportive and responsive :)

    I don't go to be weighed at WW but am following the PP plan with a calculator I bought from eBay and a list I pritnted out from Daily Mail article. I use my wii to weigh myself and once a week, every tuesday, record my weight.
    I also spoke to my gp who prescribed me Xenciala nd she weighs me every so often and that really helps me keep on track, though I am doing so well she said i dont need to be weighed until the end of March!
    This site has been the most helpful place for me and so many people are in the same situation.

    GOOD LUCK!!!!
