    Hi All, hope you are all well

    Not been on for a couple of days as been quite busy but think I am doing ok. Yesterday I was at a buffet with my mother-in-law, I was pretty good and stayed away from the battered stuff and the pizza's just went for the turkey, ham and salad, mind you a did pinch a couple of the little sausages lol cant not have those. Only thing is I have no idea how many point I ate yesterday so gotta be careful today as it's way day tomorrow.

    Anyway yet another question. I have a slow cooker that I cannot live without.........I have all the veg you can think of and some stewing steak, I was wondering if anyone new of anything I could put in with it apart from gravy as I know that gravy is quite high in points when you have a lot of it. Thanks!

    If I were you I would pop to your local shop and pick up a casserole mix. They're cheap and they usually work out about 2 points for the whole pack (which will easily do 2 - 4 portion, depending on how much beg you're putting in).

    I did one myself this week and it was delicious! I'm also a huge fan of the slow cooker, it turns tough pieces of cheap or lean meat into something that melts in your mouth! Mmm! I'd recommend them to anyone!

    Yep Marie you are spot on with the cheap meat coming out melting in your mouth mmmmmm. I found out about the packet mixes being low in points as I decided to do a chilli so I have at the moment got my chilli in there with a colmans packet.

    I am having a jacket potatoe with mine yum.

    Oh the onlly other thing is the points system for a jacket potatoe, does the weight in the books go on a cooked or non cooked one. As when a potatoe is baked it loses a lot of weight so which one is it?

    Thanks

    I love chilli con carne done in the slow cooker!! It tastes so much nicer when it's been simmering away all day.

    I don't honestly know about the jacket potato, I don't often have them myself. In the weight watchers book I picked up last week it says that a medium jacket potato for 2.5 points is about the same size as a light bulb...but that's as much help as I can be on that front. Sorry.

    Too right we can! ;)

    It'll be interesting to see how we get on, especially as we both have a similar amount to lose and we both weigh in on the same day.

    Yes! Let's!! I'm hoping for 3...I'm feeling optimistic. Although, after my disaterous meal last night perhaps I should settle for 2...over even 1, hehe.

    I shocked myself last week Marie, I though it would definately be just a 1 or 2 lb and ended up with 4 so anything can happen. I think after my little hickup this weekend I am looking at a 1 or 2 and it will be a bonus if it is more......LOL
    I would idealy like 3 lbs off then it will be 1/2 stone in two weeks but I am not holding my breath.
    Definately just as nervous now as I was last week though.....!
