    Hi Guys,

    As of Monday I'm afraid I'm defecting and going over to Weight Watchers....
    I need someone keeping a bit more of an eye on me so I don't fall into my usual trap of yoyo-ing when I get near target. :sigh:

    Weekly weigh in's and a bit more structure is what I need right now. Plus a couple of my friends go to the same class so I can get support from them too :)

    I will of course still be lurking and throwing in my two-pence-worth here if you don't mind....I'm a bit of a forum-tart anyway, ramming my opinion into every forum given half the chance....:rolleyes:

    I think it's what I need right now as I'm getting serious wobbles about maintaining on my own!

    Also I think it is literally the only diet going I haven't tried yet!!!

    Thank you! :)

    As I've said before I've got a fairly major minimins obsession, so I'm sure I'll still be rambling on here aplenty!!! :)

    I am the lightest I've been for 4-5 years now, this is the time I would usually be thinking....I'll just have a week off and a few nights out, as I'm so near goal....then a month later I'm a stone heavier again!!!

    Not this time though....That's why I'm going to do WW, plus, if I only get weighed once a week at class, that will be better for me to keep perspective :)

    I'm currently playing facebook tetris, watching my OH play "Bad Company" online on the PS3, and checking in on minimins, Saturday nights did not used to be like this.......:rolleyes:

    Ah well, another 2 weeks and it's my birthday, so I'll be out on a Saturday for once....not sure if I'll be drinking, but will certainly be dancing at this time :)

    Good for you Munky. I'm the same I can't allow myself to have even one blip now I know I can't do it and get back on the wagon no matter what I tell myself lol. How was your first week on WW? Are you enjoying it?

    I've been 100% on plan, I've saved points to have extra bits at the weekend, and actually still have some left over! It's my WI tomorrow night so I'll see then how I've done weight wise, I feel that I have been eating more than I would have been doing my own calorie counting, so I don't expect a huge loss.....

    How's the week treated you? :)

    I lost 1.5lbs at my first WW WI.
    I'm really happy with that as my WW points add up to a lot more calories than I would have had previously. Good for a gradual route to maintaining to stop my usual yoyo-ing!!
    How did you get on? :)

    I think there's not much in it in terms of the actual diet, but I just needed a kick in the right direction...and someone keeping an eye on me!!

    Also I've been eating more cals on WW and lost more weight than I was CCing! I think I'd cut down too much and made myself plateau....but hopefully I'm off that now :)

    I keep meaning to try exercise more, as I've not been very active recently, but I may save that as a reserve plan for if and when my losses slow again!

    Good luck on reaching your goal too:)
