    Hello all!:wavey:

    After lurking on this site for a couple of days I've decided to join and get my eating under control.

    I have been to WW several times over the past 8 years, and although I did get to goal on a couple of occasions it has all (and more!) piled back on. I have still have the literature from my last attempt, so I am going to do it again but on my own. My job tonight is to weigh and measure myself :( and it'll start tomorrow. Everyone seems so friendly on here and it is reassuring that I am not on my own battling my eating demons.

    Hi Paws - welcome to our little group of weight watchers!

    This is a fab site, and I hope you find it as helpful (and addictive, lol) as I do!

    Look forward to seeing how you get on - I'll be logging in tomorrow to see your start weight etc.

    Will you be starting a diary thread? I'd highly recommend one ;o)

    Big hello from me too. :wavey:

    I am have just gone back to WW class (although I know the diet well as have been on it in past) but just feel I need the support of a class right now to get me back on track.

    Plus the wonderful support from the WW'ers here too is fantastic, its nice not to feel alone on the rocky road to weight loss. :)

    Welcome to the forum.

    Did my own weigh in last night....

    15 st!!!!!!!:eek::eek::eek:

    I have never been so heavy, I really need to get this under control.

    Have been fairly good today, not had any chocolate (a big vice of mine), and am hoping to have a couple of chocolate free weeks before I begin counting points in earnest so I don't feel too deprived when I do if that makes any sense.:confused:

    It makes perfect sense!! I completely understand - although if you really feel the need to have some chocolate try the weight watchers mini rolls or caramel cake bars - they are absolutely gorgeous and only 1.5 points each

    That's handy to know. I have tried some WW cookies in the past and to be honest they were like cardboard! Will check them out when I go shopping. Thanks!

    Youll be surprised at the chocolate you can actually eat. My favourite are chocolate Alpen Bars followed by Curly Wurlys - there are a lot of low point choc bars out there ;)

    Alpen Bars are 1.5 as Pink said a Curly Wurly is 2.5. A treat size flake is 3. Treat size buttons are 1.5.

    Its worth checking the shopping guide for ideas, it saves totally elimintating chocolate from your diet :)
