    Hello i would recommend you buy the PP scales to weigh all your food i find them a must for the multiple weighing etc..:)

    Good luck

    I dont bother tbh . My hubby bought a cheep round silver one from asda for under £10 and we just use them. obviously it doesn't tell me the points but your calculator can do that for you . I find using scales makes me more aware of portion control and sizes .

    Thanks guys - think I've sussed it it's something to do with rounding the points up or down which is why there is a difference in points. I bought a calculator which makes things easier.

    Since ww cut out the half point they round up and down now instead so take a 1pp piece of bread it may actually be 1.4pp, they round that down to make the 1pp, there for 2 would be 2.8 so that'd be rounded up to 3pp and so on. The calculator really is the best thing to buy off ww, it makes things 100 times easier. Best of luck and I hope this makes sense for you xx

    Thankyou - was just used to the old point system, just getting my head round pro points lol. I'm bursting to see the difference in weight loss with points and pro points

    Think on propoints you can eat more and are kinda pushed towards eating more fruit and veg. I think its more sustainable with the 49 weeklies too. Don't think the weight loss is as quick but it seems fairly consistent. Good luck xx
