    Hey everyone,
    I'm Kat and I have been lurking round here and reading posts for the last week or so, everyone's posts are so inspiring so I thought I'd post and introduce myself, I joined WW on the 4th of June weighing in a a whopping 15.10 :(
    so far i have managed to loose 11lb which im really happy with, although I have been told off almost every week for not eating all my points, Im a really fussy eater so I really do find it hard, hmmm I dont sound like a fussy eater at 15.10 do I? but obviously im not too fussy when it comes to junk food and biscuits, I also never ate breakfast or lunch before only Dinner and biscuits (lots of biscuits) in the evenings :) im not at the heaviest I have ever been but i am the most i have weighed in years,
    Anyway I'm going to be 30 in 6 months time, I think its the motivation I need I really want to buy myself a gorgeous dress 2 sizes smaller :)
    I did join SW a couple of years ago and I lost a bit of weight however I didnt really think it was the right plan for me and gave up
    so when I tell people about this amazing dress I'm going to buy I get some looks as if to say 'yeah right' again that is making me even more determind that I will Do this
    anyway enought of my babbling on, looking forward to getting to know you all
    Kat xx

    Welcome to the WW gang :)

    Definitely eat your points, you can really affect your wi if you dont. Dont save more than 4 a day but only save them if you want to splash out on a treat at some point.

    If youre struggling keep a stock of treats in, a wee bar of chocolate or crisps or something ;)

    Hey welcome!!! I'm gonna be 30 in September so console yourself that you have longer than me in your 20s and longer to reach your goal!!! :) I'm panicking a bit about hitting another decade overweight...but we can do it, this is a good spot for advice and support and encouragement and these women will not let you fall too far off the wagon x

    Hi there and welcome. It's a great supportive place to be. Mini treats are a good thing as Starlight said. I like Rainbow drops at 1.5 a 35g bag.

    Good luck.

    last week at my wi i had thought of a few things i could do to add points, normal bread as opposed to ww bread, have full fat milk instead of skimmed, one day last week I had 12.5 points left over so I thought if that happened again I'd have a mars bar for 5.5 points i told my leader of my plans lol and she was like, yeah thats a good idea when i got to the mars bar, she just laughed, then saturday through the post she sent me a little not to say well done on my loss but mars bars out more healthy extras in :) lol
    i still think my mars bar idea was a good one :)
