    Hi everyone,

    Just after a bit of advice really. Me and my friend want to lose about 2 stone before we go on holiday in November and I think that is quite realistic about 2 pound a week. So decided to do weight watchers, we want to do it alone though and just get the books off ebay. Has this worked for other people? Also what books do I need to get??

    Hiya well done for starting,I do it alone with books at home but have been to group many times,which can be a god send for some.

    Make sure you have the 2010 books as things change ,have you a paper calculator to work out the points? Set of kitchen scales?

    Id always go for 1-2lbs loss in aiming as our bodies are funny especially us women,hormones water retention.I gained 2.5lbs 2 weeks agao and I have stuck to plan 100% for 20 weeks so we never know what the body decides lol,you may have a biiger than 2lbs loss or a sts and have done no different to weeks to lose 1-2lbs.
    Learn all you can about the plan,dont see it as a 'diet' as that will make you feel deprived and missing out on things.
    Good luck to you both xx

    hello! I am also doing WW alone instead of going to meetings or online. I have done WW before so know what I am doing - I like you also bought the books off of ebay. It is early days but doing well so far.

    With regard to books/items to get - I have got a tracker book (to write absolutely everything down in!), shop (for points values of everything) and the eat out guide (because I do this way too often). Having gone to some meetings this year before I decided to go it alone I had also purchased the kitchen scales, points calculator and tape measure!

    Wishing you and your friend the best of luck on your weight loss journeys!

    Hi, i'm doing it alone also. Got my pack and some recipe books off ebay, and also got WW magazine which is FAB. I'm going to be starting on monday, gives me a little time to sort of know what i'm doing. Hubby is going to be doing it with me(not that he needs to), i think without forums like this it would be really difficult for me to follow WW. There seems to be alot of people willing to give advice.
