    Hi

    I am Hayley and I will be joining you on WW as of Friday. Why Friday? Well, firstly because it's the first of the month and secondly, because I have ordered my WW scales and they probably won't be here until then.

    I will be counting points rather than Core and have everything I need to get me started. I have a rough idea of how many points I will be allowed - I think it will be in excess of 30 but I am too heavy for the scales I have at the moment so cannot get an accurate weight:eek: - another reason for getting the new scales.

    Got my scales today - have only worked out straighforward weighing so far but they appear to be able to calculate BMI, fat content and water content too.

    It looks like I am going to be allowed 31 points - unless I lose half a stone before my start date which is unlikely because it's Friday :)

    Yes the glass type ones - they were £45 but you can probably get them cheaper but I got them from my Freemans catalogue to take advantage of the Buy Now Pay January

    Oh dear - it's not too late for me to send them back.

    Can you recommend some good ones? A lot only go up to 20st but I need ones that go higher than that :sigh:

    Yours might be fine :) Mine were just rubbish the figures fluctuated constantly and there was almost a stone of a difference between them and the right weight lol

    I ended up getting Salter ones but as I said dont be put off the WW ones if yours seem ok :eek:

    LOL - just got all the packaging out of the bin too. I'll see how I go and if I have problems I'll return them as faulty (like if, for example, I don't lose any weight;))

    I've gained 5 lbs over night on my new scales.

    I am thinking of returning them and getting weighed by the nurse at my doctors surgery.

    Just waiting for an appt - it will probably mean that I will only weigh in once a month though but that shouldn't be a problem should it?

    Getting weighed once a month wont be a problem BUT do you think you can go a month without a weigh in.

    I had the same problem when I started. I bought the WW scales which were rubbish and returned them and went to my doctor for my weigh in. Waiting 4 weeks was torture!!

    I ended up buying other scales, which have been great but I still go to my doctor every 4 weeks for a weigh in with him. Hes recording it all in my records and will stand me in good stead should I need surgery once I get to goal. It also means if my weight loss plateaus then he can monitor that too.

    If you think you can manage with a weigh in once a month its certainly an option but I know I couldnt.

    Remember too to weigh yourself at the same time of day and - and this can sound mad - in the same place lol

    Hmm - I can't see the nurse until next Wednesday but I've had a brainwave.

    There is a gym at work and I think they may have some of those scales that you pay to weigh yourself on. I thought if weighed myself at 8am tomorrow morning when I get to work and then every Friday morning ongoing - making sure I always wear the same clothes on a Friday - then that should work.

    I will certainly know that the scales are in the same place.
