    :sigh: Hi all,

    i am not moaning - i just need some help,
    i feel great this week and happy with my weight lost but this week i am -

    so HUNGRY ,

    I went over my points saturday as i was so hungry -

    each time i am hungry - i stop myself and head for some water just in case i am not hungry!

    but even my belly makes noises to say i am hungry -
    un-like me at all!

    but this week i can eat loads --
    i stuck to low point foods and things that will feel me up!

    mmmm sounds like your doing everything right, what sort of low point foods and things that fill you up are you eating, maybe they're not filling you up...???

    Dashed good question Jeeves!
    Hi Ann

    Are there no free foods that you can graze on? Celery takes a lot of chewing - is it allowed on your diet?

    Maybe trying to find something to distract you from thinking about being hungry - there are quite a few tournaments waiting for players in the Arcade!

    Good luck

    Hi Ann, sounds like you need to spend a few points on things like complex carbs, that is Porridge (really low points and slow releasing) Weetabix, Brown Rice, Brown Pasta, Brown Bread,,,the food your eating is all low points but its also fast digesting, look up Complex Carbs online and see if you can find ideas for what you like and could fit into your plan.

    carbohydrates in the diet - simple and complex carbohydrate

    complex carbohydrates foods list - good sources of complex carbohydrates

    how many points are you allowed a day, and how many have you used, I'm guessing close to 20 used so far, but can't tell what the 12 pasta is???

    hi Ann, your alright I didn't think you'd snapped at me,,well your day is different to other WWr's, or it seems to be, mmmm i think you should allow yourself a few extra points of Complex Carbs whilst doing the night shift cuz your using more energy than us 9-5r's...anyhow if ya need help just shout...

    Good luck chuck :)

    hmm looks like youre having all your main meals within 4 hours of each other and leave the rest of the time to snack. Could you not swap the pitta bread and some fruit around so that you dont feel like you cant have anythng later and you will have something other than fruit to look forward to?

    hi ann, me again LOL....well i'm remembering back to my WW days and 80cals usually meant one point, so your on less than 1500 pts per day and whilst I'm not encouraging you to cheat or break your plan, but trust me, if you think of having two more weetabix with milk or somehting healthy, as long as your not filling up with high fat food, you so will not gain, are you taking into account the points your earning by your moving about,,,you don't say what your job is, are you on your feet a lot, walking about, 3pts for 1/2hr fast walking, about 1pt for 1/2 hr walking the wards, walking anywhere recently as I said I'm guessing cuz I dn't have detail to go by..anyhow I hope my feedback has helped a bit LOL..:)

    Hmm I'm not really sure what to suggest, sorry.

    Do you go to meetings? I'm sure your leader would be able to help. Anyway, I'm bouncing to see if anyone else can help.
