    Hi Olivia,
    I don't use MSN but happy to chat on here as I just started today a week behind you! Amazing first week loss well done! This is my second weight watchers diet so hopefully I can be some help with recipes and ideas too as I was really good last time for a while but annoyingly stopped and let it slip (or landslide!).
    As it's day one i'm doing what I find best on WW which is i've put slow cooker on this morning with stew in! I'll do a jacket potato to go with it when I get in but just done lean casserole steak with lots of free stuff: tinned toms, beef stock, carrots, garlic, onion, swede and seasoning! Works out low points and love it when it's cold out! It's not being able to eat spong pudding / crumble and custard that I struggle with as a ww yoghurt just doesn't do the job for me....However I will be good otherwise i'll cringe at holiday pics of our planned January holiday!
    Caz

    Yes definitely i know what you mean i always feel like i am eating more but i think it's the food you eat that makes the difference. For example i wouldn't really have batted an eyelid to having a curry with rice and naan bread but that's something ridiculous like 40+ points. So WW definitely re-educates you. Try to eat all of your points though. I know it sounds backwards. I hope the rest of week 2 treats you well. xxx

    Hi Olivia!!!

    Im new to this forum too and have been following ww for nearly 5 weeks now.

    I am currently on 19 points and im the complete opposite as i really struggle to stay under the points. I do like a biscuit with my cuppa tho which is probably my downfall. I also save points every day to have a treat on my weight in day or drinky poos at the weekend lol

    You must be doing something right so keep up the good work Mrs and it wont be long till you hit your target

    Thanks for all the replies! Feel really motivated coming on here...

    I do have a question though. I do a twenty min cardio walkout and walk for fifteen minutes a day and usually average at about 6 activity points. Should I be eating at least some of these? And if so how many?!

    Hope someone can help!

    Hey sorry for the delay i have not been able to get to the computer. Activity points is a difficult one. I found when i was exercising a lot and not eating the points i didn't lose as much weight as i wanted to but at the same time i didn't really want to eat them. It might be difficult for you to especially as you are struggling to eat them all at the moment. I suggest you use them if you need them for like an odd treat 'going out' or for a glass of wine but don't rely on them. I think it is also a bit of trial and error so try not eating them for a week if you lose a good amount of weight continue to not eat them if you don't lose as much as you'd like maybe try and eat a few of them up. Hope that helps a bit. :D xxx
