Well I'm just getting ready to re-start WW tomorrow.

I have defected today from SW and have chosen not to do PP but to do DP which I know well and which I lost 19lbs on last year so I know it works well for me.

Getting my diary sorted now as I have a long working day ahead of me tomorrow so will simply add my evening meal to it when I get home and decide what i am having!

My daily allowance is 23 points,

Monday - Day 1

Breaksfast - 1 x grapefruit with splenda (1), OSS with skimmed milk (2.5), frozen berries

Lunch - wafer thin and cucumber sandwich - WW white sliced x 2 slices (1), 30g ham (0.5) 2 tbsp Heinz Light Salad cream in stead of spread (1), tomatoes. 25g pack Sainsburys BGTY Paprika flavour soya and potato snacks (1.5)

Tea - WW meal - Creamy Chicken & Mushroom (5.5) with frozen vegetables, medium portion strawberries (0.5) with Shape Zero yoghurt (1)

Snacks - 2L NAS, 1/4pt skimmed milk for cups of tea x 3 (1), Alpen light x 2 (2)

DP for day = 18.5

Tuesday

2nd day. Sat down to plan meals last night for shopping list and suddenly found it incredibly hard after being used to thinking SW for so long............going to plod along til my holidays a week on Saturday and maybe consider whether I should go for PP because there is so much more literature available to give me meal suggestions.

I gave away all of my recipe books, point books and magazines and of course everything now is PP so it maybe a thought, I will see. Until then, probably a lot of repetition!! :rolleyes:

Breaksfast - whole grapefruit (with splenda) (1), OSS plain with skimmed milk (2.5)

Lunch - John West Tuna Light lunch French style (3) with 2 rounds WW white bread (1), strawberries (1) and Shape Zero (1)

Tea - Morrisons Eat smart minced beef hotpot (6)with lots of vegetables

Snacks - skimmed milk for cups of tea x 3 (1), 2 x Alpen lights (2), Sainsburys BGTY potato and soya crisps Thai chilli flavour (1.5) WW Strawberry Meringue desert (2)

Total DP today - 22/23

Total DP for week - 40.5/138

Day 3 - Wednesday

I have to admit to feeling quite peckish the last couple of days, but persevering because I don't remember that from last time and wonder if it is just the switch from SW to WW way of eating.

Today I plan to have (but will edit later and add what I have for tea)

Breakfast - OSS with skimmed milk (2.5)

Lunch - 3 x Sainsburys Crispbreads (1.5) with WW tuna in coronation sauce (1), strawberries (.5), Shape Zero (1)

Tea - Ham salad (1) with egg (1.5), 1tbsp Heinz Light salad cream (.5) 1 slice WW white bread (1)

Snacks - Alpen light x 1 (1), WW Cheese flavour puffs (1), Picnic bar (damn damn damn) (4.5) Rose wine x 2 (4), Hartleys low calorie jelly pot (0)

Total = 21/23

Total for week - 61/138

hiya, you are doing great...if you need any help just shout, there are lots of people on here that have great ideas etc. maybe have a look thru other peoples food diaries and get some meal ideas from them. I am allowed 26 points a day and struggle to use them all most of the time, as Ive filled up on low point things. If im feeling hungry i sometimes have a bowl of 0 or 1 point veg soup before my meal so that fills me up. Carbs are my biggest problem, I love em!! so finding lower point substitutes was a must for me. I now add swede to mashed potato to bulk it out and lower the points, or I have roast bns and courgette instead, i have warburtons thins and wraps instead of bread and I have small amounts of rice or pasta but have 200g of potato wedges made with baking potatoes micro'd and then roasted with some frylight on. I have a big apetite and always feel hungry if my plate isnt full...so these things have helped me to have big portions but low in points. I also snack on cucumber and philly light, or melba toasts. the crunch helps to get rid of the cravings. Pepsi max helps keep hunger at bay too and is 0 points. keep up the good work :) Im sure you willsee a loss this week!

Hello Nicola

thank you for visiting!! :D

To be totally honest with you I am absolutely starving!! I don't remember being so hungry last time I did Discover Points, but I am really struggling with that!!

I don't want to flit back and too, really want to get stuck into WW, if not before my hols, after my holidays, for the long term, but if I keep feeling so hungry I worry I will waiver.

Your weight loss looks really good - well done and good luck!

Hi guys

I'm going to Sheringham. Never been to Norfolk before so I am looking forward to it........usually go to Cornwall but just fancied a change this year!

Its just a relaxing re-charge your batteries break - take loads of books and don't fret about what I eat or when I eat!! Would love the weather to be nice though because my dog will get easily bored if it rains!!
