    Hi Clair

    Welcome to the site, and good luck with your diet. The first few days are the hardest on a diet (I find) so now you're in the routine of it you're well on your way.

    Like Starlight said, we're quite a small bunch, but everyone's really great and eager to help - I'd be lost without them all!

    Look forward to seeing how you get on with ww - good luck!

    Does anyone know what happens if you dont eat all of your points at anytime or is it best to eat them ALL?

    :)

    You can save up to four points in a day, but you must use them all by the end of the week. So you can save four points one day and have four extra the next day, or you can save four points for a few days to save up for a day/night out etc. I think the general rule is that you must use all your points in a week, and you shouldn't save more than four points in one day. A few people save points up so they can have a treat day with a takeaway or a few drinks etc, and that's fine, it's 'allowed' on ww - which is why we love it, lol.

    I personally don't do any exercise, but I am (and always have been) very lazy and terribly unfit - I don't recommend following in my footsteps. I am considering joining our local gym, it includes classes and swimming (I really enjoy swimming - it's just the whole swimming costume part I don't like!) so that should push me into doing some exercise (if I'm paying for it then I'm sure OH will force me to go, lol).

    First of all... [​IMG]


    Secondly, when I save points I have to admit I don't go out of my way to have them by the end of the week. If I save them I save them, if I don't I don't. I think it helps to make sure you have all your points at least once or twice a week, as your body/metabolism will get used to you having the same all the time - having a different amount (and different meals) each day keeps your metabolism at peak performance!

    Oh, and I've bought a trampette from a friend and am planning on doing that of an evening or something. I'm very lazy and hate exercise.

    Good luck with your weight loss, I'm sure you'll do great! :D

    I am on 21 points a day and am struggling, I went to ww about 3 yrs ago and lost 18 lbs but then as soon as I stopped I have done the same as you and put more on than what I started with last time.

    It is getting to the stage where I will have to have a bag of crisps or something to get my point up......:)

    You do count fruit but it is only half or one point its not much, I have just been naughty and had a packet of crisps with my dinner to up my points (the only packet I have had this week I might add) as I have got a stir fry with chicken tonight which wont be much either!

    I cant really answer the choc and cakes as I dont eat them much, well very very rarely anyway.

    I tried piling my plate up with veg last night and it stuffed me out which ment I could'nt eat anything else after, thats why I had my glasses of wine lol

    For breakfast I normally have cereal or toast thats about all I can stomache first thing in the morning.
