    After many months of lurking, finally decided its time to post! For the past 3 years, i have been desperately trying to lose 2 stone which i have managed successfully on more than one occasion using cambridge! Unfortunately i have never managed to maintain and here i am with 3 stone to lose! After reading posts etc, decided the sensible slow and steady was the way forward and joined a weightwatchers class last wednesday. Had my first weigh in yesterday and was absolutely gutted to have only lost half a pound - i actually came home and cried! Have stuck to the plan to the letter - a couple of days had less points (am allowed 21) and the leader has said its because i didnt eat all my points. Not convinced as on fast start you only have 18 and averaging out i had at least 18 every day last week. Both my friends who i go with lost and i ve been pointing them in the right direction!

    Any advice would be gratefully received, as really frustrated and can hear cambridge calling, which i know long term is not the way forward for me - just want to be thin for summer and am quite happy at the thought of losing at about 7lbs a month.

    Goodness - this is a very long first post!

    Hi Donna, welcome to minis and WW forum

    If you have stuck with the plan, I really wouldn't worry - although it is disappointing - but the weight will come off next week.

    I know for me, my first week on a diet is rarely a big loss - but week 2 usually is as my body gets the kick it needs.

    It might be worth using a food diary on here - it helps keep you on track, get ideas from others - and importantly, making sure you are pointing things correctly.

    Good luck xx

    Thanks for the reply. Bought monthly pass so use the online tracker and points calculator - also means that as i have paid up for the month i really do need to give it chance

    A food dairy on here would be a good idea, that way if i am going wrong, someone could point me in the right direction

    Congratulations on your weight loss - you have done brillantly!!
