    Hi there.

    I've been staring at this blank space for a good ten minutes wondering what to write, i'm finding myself nervous at being a newbie somewhere. I use the internet everyday on various forums/chat sites and of course Facebook, being new somewhere is really daunting, but i'm just going let my fingers relax and hope I don't end up writing an essay!

    Anyway, I am Clare.
    I started Weight Watchers on Monday it's really been a long time coming for me to pull my finger out and do something about my weight, it all went wrong after I had my first son, the DEPO jab ballooned me up 3 stone that I have never lost, mainly due to my own bone idleness because to be fair I can be really lazy! Lol; nothing like honesty is there!

    Anyway 4 years on and 6 weeks after the birth of baby number 2, I am on my 4th day of WW and finding it both easy and hard, as mad as that sounds.

    The point counting is a doddle, I have the deluxe pack and I get very calculator happy whenever I open my cupboards, I just love that I can eat what I like aslong as I am within my points, great for the fussy eaters like me. The hunger is the hard bit, finding myself constantly hungry at the moment, hopefully this passes.

    I think I will leave this here for now, I could type all day now I have started.

    Just wanted to get started and say hi.
    Hope everyone is having a good day

    xx

    Hi Clare - welcome! & Congrats on baby number 2:) I'm calorie counting (same as points really) because like you I am really fussy and like the fact that I can eat what I like, not just as much. The hunger definitely passes - If I feel peckish, I munch on fruit or have a yoghurt. It's worked for me. Good luck with your journey.
