I used 2 drink alot ov coffee b4 2 curb my appetite but cnt do that now coz dnt want to use loads ov points on milk. Then I thort it cud b coz im not eatin crap at nite tym so my body is just adjustin. I must say I have gone 2 bed a few tyms wit a rumblin tum and no points left!! Think im feelin sory 4 myself 2day coz I ate 4 points ova last nite and I feel bloated and a failure this morn! I just want a gud result 4 wi on friday then I no it wil have been all worth it. Not even thru my first week and moanin,how bad is that. Has anybody else had a simular first week? Guna have a word with myself this morn n pik myself up.xxx

    You need to make sure you spread your points out for the day and save some for after tea to snack on low point snacks! I have a hot choc and pink and white and it satisfies me. The headaches are probably from the coffee as your used to the caffiene! Drink plenty of water and it should reduce headaches. Just give it time as it takes a while to readjust!

    Sometimes it helps to have a moan. My first week was really tricky, I struggled a lot. This week I have tried a new approach and shared out my weekly allowance so I aren't left hungry. I'll see if it works. If not I'll try another approach next week x

    I would say the headaches are defo from caffeine withdrawal & agree they will go with time, it shouldn't take too long, a few days....it's a big adjustment! I get headaches when I come off booze, how bad is that?!

    With regards to food I am a late night muncher too & feel peckish about an hour or so after dinner....I am eating enough it's just I've always had big meals in the evening. I try & keep half (if not more) of my pp for dinner & afterwards & don't be afraid to dip into weeklies....although saving them for a mega treat is always good :D try the low or zero point soups, they are filling, I had mine yesterday topped with creme fraiche (half fat), a tuna side salad, with low fat dressing & 2 oatcakes & apple - 6pp. It takes a while to get your head round it but I'm sure you'll get there :)

    Well done :)

    I've heard fab things about the morrisons range. Industry go check it out. Spicy food is awesome for loosing weight, as is pepper as it speeds up your metabolism.

    Keep up the fab work xx
