    STARTED WEIGHT WATCHERS (AGAIN) THIS MORNING, I LOST 5 STONE 2 YEARS AGO FOLLOWING WW BUT HAVE PUT IT ALL BACK ON (AND THEN SOME!!).
    CAN'T FIT IN GOING TO MEETING ROUND WORK AND MY DAUGHTER SO AM DOING IT MYSELF AT HOME SINCE I HAVE ALL THE BOOKS, POINT CALCULATOR ETC.
    I AIM TO POST MY WEIGHT ON HERE EVERY MONDAY, HOPEFULLY THAT WILL TAKE THE PLACE OF GETTING WEIGHED AT A MEETING, SO WATCH THIS SPACE!!!

    NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET, GOT A LOT TO LOSE.

    STARTING WEIGHT 19 STONE 8LBS. FINGERS CROSSED FOR A DECENT LOSS THIS WEEK.

    hi there nikki

    i started (for about the 4th time) weight watchers on saturday when i went to a meeting so looks like we are newbies together. Lots of luck for the next week and looking forward to seeing how you get on.

    I have found Jaffa cakes and meringue nests have really helped my sweet tooth [smile]

    Weighed myself before going to work, only lost 3lbs!! Was expecting a bit more on the first week, and while i know it's better than gaining or staying the same i am really disappointed.

    I tried so hard last week didn't use all my points any day except Saturday, but surely 1 chinese shouldn't have spoiled things too much!!??
    Am trying not to get disheartnened but was looking forward to the boost of a big drop on the 1st week.
    Anyway am still counting the points and will see what happens next week, not going to give up just yet!!
    Last week i was only using around 14 point a day when i have 26 to use, one of the girls at work also doing ww said i wasn't using enough points and maybe thats why i didn't lose so much. Is that right?? Doesn't make much sense to me.Although i do vaguely remember the leader at the class i used to go to saying something about not saving more than 2 per day and to use up your points.

    Can anyone shed some light on my tiny loss??

    Nikki Id say without a shadow of a doubt youve had far far too few points... you were TWELVE a day under your allowance. You should never save more than 4 a day. Eating too little is actually as bad, diet wise, as eating too much.

    I think youll find you would have had a much better wi if youd used your points fully. The points are worked out for a reason, so we're all getting the balance we need youve effectively starved yourself this week.

    Be sure and eat ALL Your points this week if youre allowed 26 you should use them all up, or save a maximum of 4 a day which you should use by the end of the week

    Yeah thats pretty much what the girl at work said, i'll try to eat a bit more this week and see what happens,but i wasn't deliberately trying to save all those points i really had had enough to eat.

    God I never thought i'd be struggling to eat more!! LOL

    Youll REALLY need to eat a lot more or its not going to work at all for you :( Enjoy it though, have a bar of chocolate or a packet of crisps. If youre really struggling, post some of your menus & we'll see if we can offer higher point alternatives but honestly if you dont eat at least 22 points a day, youre just not going to lose anything at all :(

    Aww, I'm sorry you weren't happy with your 3lb loss, BUT, that really is a fab result and you really shouldn't be disappointed with it!

    I have to agree with Starlight - you do need to use all your points up every week, and like she said, save no more than 4 per day. There is a fine line between eating few enough calories to lose weight, and eating TOO few calories which will just cause your body to hold onto and store fat (I'm assuming that's why ww has the 'no more than 4 points a day' rule, though I'm no expert, so that is just my opinion).

    Try and use up all your points every day this week, and if you do save some then make sure it's no more than 4 a day and also make sure you keep note of them and that you use them eventually before your next weigh in (though I wouldn't recommend using up all your saved points on a huge meal/takeaway etc too close to your weigh in - give it a few days to *ahem* pass though :)).

    You're doing really well though - no need to be disappointed with a loss like that - 3lb is a lot of fat! Go measure 3lb of marg onto your kitchen scales if you don't believe me, I bet you'll be happier about it when you can actually see just how much that is!

    Keep up the hard work - just eat more! (Korr, I wish I had that problem, heehee).
