    aday :p, but im not im on 23 and each day i have had 28, so i think it will be again for me in my first week.
    will be going shopping hopefully tomorrow so that should help as i have been eating things that are already in the house.

    still it wont come as a shock on wed when i get on them scales and weigh heavier

    Gosh, when I used to be on Weight Watchers, I absolutely hated it. I think it's so restricting! If I didn't do any exercise, apparently I would have to stick to a pathetic 18 points a day. That's just pure horrible. :p

    celery and celeriac soup, or carrot and ginger.

    both tomato free and you could probably leave onions out and just add more of whatever else is in.

    and Marshkipan, your sig says you're a gym bunny, so surely 18 points cant have been that terrible as you would've earned activity points at gym and dancing :p

    Why us that horrible?It's a proper way if eating, teaches us portion control and thousands if people do it easily.
    I didn't lose weight on SW as I couldn't eat huge portions and rosemary conley 1200 cals were to low fir my start weight so kist barely any weight.

    Each plan works work different people and exercise is what we should all do for a healthy lifestyle x

    I have to admit that I do struggle on 18 points. It's actually not bad at all - if you're very well planned, but it is harder to save points for treats. WW is a pretty flexible plan though - I think it just feels hard when you're struggling generally (but then any diet would feel hard at that point). If you're in 'the zone' WW is fabulous and points aren't a problem at all :)

    Oh and thanks Rach for the soup ideas! will try those ones!! :D sound yum, pesky tomatoes and onions though tut! trying to spoil my food! :p :D

    At the age of 41 been on many diets and TBH ww is the easiest fir me to stick at.Marshkipan is only 16 and at goal so woulndnt be on 18 at maintance?
    Yes 18 points are low that's why they tell us to exercise to gain AP and there's free foods , your right DA if your in the zone then any diets going to be easier xx

    It's funny how - if I ever go over by 1 point, I always think to myself, 'It's only 1 point!' But if I lose 1 point I think 'Argh! How will I cope without my 1 point extra?!' :D

    Definitely right about the free foods Cherry. I really need to try and eat more veggies - I made 0pt soup this week and it's already making a difference because I don't feel as hungry.

    I'm a bit wary of earning APs and eating them though - I have always saved my APs to boost my losses. Having said that I guess APs are a good idea to earn for treats?
