ProPoints Going to try weight watchers!! Time to get serious!

Hi everyone!

Well I have been on Slimming world since June and I managed to lose 17lbs, then went on holiday to Corfu and put back on 7l! Oops!!

So current weight loss is 10.5 lbs. Not great.

I used to do weight watchers and I lost 3 stone doing it, so I am jumping ship from slimming world and coming back to ww!!

I have a new ticker, I have taken my stone sticker off and I am starting again!

I have the online 3 month membership, a calculator on my phone and I am going to order the shop book from the website I think.

My first mini goal on weight watchers is to lose 10lbs by xmas which would take me under my next stone bracket and be a great start. Only 2lbs a week so a steady lose would be great.

According to the website I am allowed 39 pro points a day.

So this is my new diary, please read and scrutinise my pointing and shout out if I am going wrong! I love all the support on this website, it's the only place I can come and feel I can do it.

A bit about me, my name is Claire by the way, 25, living in Lincoln. Been heavy all my life and now just desperately want to stop feeling so depressed.. it's getting to the point where I don't want to go out because I feel so horrible in clothes. I would love to wear some lovely clothes and feel nice. So that's my goal :)

Claire xx

good luck with the Pro points Claire - im opposite to you - ive lost some with WW (Discover though..) and have now moved over to SW..

will pop in and keep up with how you're doing though, even if i cant help much with the PP if thats okay :) xxx
Hi Rachel!

Yes that would be lovely :) Thank you, always nice to have someone watching over things!

Good Luck with slimming world, sometimes a change is good, I don't see any problem with trying different plans, sometimes i think the change of a new plan helps because you are excited about learning it and you try that extra bit harder!!

So good luck to us both!!

I see you are from Newcastle, we just moved from Newcastle in March!

Do you keep a food diary?

Claire xx
yeah i write a paper one out and i just list my food in my regular talk about any old rubbish diary which is still in the WW section as i'm settled here :)

and yeah, well technically im in Chopwell in Gateshead, but close enough to Newcastle.. :)

how come you moved then? work? x
Hello :wavey:

Rachael- Yeah we did move because of work. My partner was made redundant and managed to get a good position at Lincoln police so we upped sticks and took the plunge!

howre you finding it? was he with the police up here then or did he go a completely different job route? x
Hey hun :)

He is police staff, he is a high tech forensic investigator. He worked for an independent company in Sunderland before and they closed down. He had worked for the police briefly so we applied all over the country and Lincoln was the first place that came up! It was like 6 weeks from being made redundant to moving, it was a big change and a bit of a shock leaving our life behind, but one of the best decisions we have made I think :)

I found your diary last night, I saw you recently got engaged! Congratulations :)

Weight watchers is going ok. I think on slimming world you can eat more- but more restricted as the syns don't go far. With the points at least you can have what you want, it's a bit easier for a busy lifestyle I think. Although the points soon go don't they! Which do you prefer?

How much more do you want to lose? You have done really well so far! I have about 4.5 stones to go :( Christmas is the worst time to try and diet!

ah really? my fiancé did his degree in computer forensics but the jobs are few and far between - he works in sunderland for the royal hospital now as an IT project manager for maternity..

not what he originally wanted but hes happy and it pays for his newcastle season ticket LOL :p

we've got about the same to lose - you've got about 10lbs more than me i think - though i'll be happy to hit under 14st for xmas as its a nightmare - totally agree with you.. worst time to diet. I'm out pretty much every weekend until xmas now :(

also agree WW was loooooooads simpler for a busy lifestyle but ive done it so long i've lost the umph.. might go back to it eventually but SW is okay for now.. i love EE days.. dont think i'll ever go onto red and green!

whens your first WI? i'm looking forward to seeing how you do with the PP :) xxx

Had a film night with my boyfriend and we had some pickies, naughty as used so many points but have been honest and used from weekly allowance, so just going to have to try and stay within all week.

Not feeling 100% positive about things, was feeling really down and sad the last couple of days, feeling better now, not sure what was wrong but just wish I could find the motivation to do this well. Being slim is what I want more than anything.. so why can't I do it? What is food more important to me? Obviously I don't want it enough or I would just do it!- Maybe I don;t feel I deserve it- maybe that is the problem.

think the weather gets us down - as for the not deserving it, i think we all feel like that sometimes - i find its the weeks we're really good and dont lose what we would like that are the hardest cause it does sometimes make you question if you're doing it right and if you deserve it etc..

but dont worry.. you can do it just keep at it :) xxx
