    Hi All,
    I'm thinking of moving from CD to WW. I have around 2 stone to lose to get to my goal weight and was wondering if there was anyone on here who has gone from CD to WW sucessfully. I feel ready for it now more than anything.
    I have worked out from the WW site I will be allowed 19 points per day but wasn't sure what this was in terms of food - its a long time since i have done WW and I know its all changed.
    Any tips appreciated
    Donna

    Hi KM, your points allowance and how much you get for it depends on what you eat. There is a thread for menus started this morning and a few people have posted on that, that would maybe give you an idea.

    As for transferring from CD, if you are still in ketosis, its likely you may have a STS or a slight gain but scales will start moving again.

    I have done both LL & CD in the past, with initially great results! I did have a break between my last foray into CD & starting WW.

    I was dead chuffed in my first week to lose 5lb AND to have eaten like a normal person!!!!

    Best of luck!!

    hi donna
    i also changed from cd to ww, i didnt have a break and sts for 1 week then started to lose anywhere from 1lb to 3lb per week, that was in the 2nd week of august and have gone from 12st 13lb to 10st 12lb!!
    i feel that because i didnt have a break even the bland low fat foods tasted nice, and also i have never felt hungry on the points as i had been used to only 3 shakes a day i also started on 19 points.
    i find ww points so easy and not the torture of cd.
    good luck on your weight loss journey

    Thanks for that Carol, I went to join the class last night but it appears to have stopped running! Have to find another one that is NOT on a Tuesday! All the classes in my area seem to be on a Tuesday grrr (I work late)
    Have found one to try to get to tomorrow so will see how we get on. Have been eating low cal/fat stuff & staying away from carbs but have already had my gain lol so the first week should be a loss :)

    nice to know it can be done. Where abouts are you? I see your in the NE?

    Quick update from me. I managed to get to the Wednesday class & joined up and even did the monthly pass thing.
    First weigh in tomorrow so will report & let you know how I get on.
    Not expecting great things but have been under my points limit and even managed to get a few bonus points chucked in there

    Hiya hun, I only managed 5 days on CD :( although I wish I could have continued. I started WW on Sunday and I have not gain a pound. Although Im finding it hard to eat plus Im scared I will go back into old habits. So I had about 16 points yday and Ive had 7 so far. And Im meant to have 31 eeekk. Going to up the points by the weekend. Im just trying to control the hunger pangs before I go back to 31 points. Good luck hun xx
