    So here I am, sunday 8th of may,armed with a calculator, premade meals in the freezer and a kitchen full of fruit ready to give it my best most honest shot.
    Do you guys tend to use the weeklies? As an old ww expert I find these soo nerve wracking!
    Lots of losses to all,

    Hi

    I'm only into my 3rd week on Propoints and have found it very easy to follow. I tend to just stick to the 29 points that I'm allowed each day. I use my 49 points for going out for a meal at the weekend or if I've gone over a bit each day then I know I have the safety net but I don't plan to use them.

    Good luck - new start, new you!

    you should use your weeklies. It makes the "diet" a lot more managable... even if its just a wee cheeky takeout on your wi night or whatever.

    If you drop em long term your body gets used to not having them... which means anytime you do want to use them its nearly always gonna ruin your weightloss.

    I don't use my exercise points... but I'm a firm believer of using the dailies and weeklies as it does work out to your basic calorie requirement.

    Good luck with it, hope you find weightloss success x

    Yeah a lot of people find the first while easy... I've had a lot of new people in my ww class saying they can't believe how much they can actually eat, and lose weight with! x

    From Day one, if I ate more than just a few of my weeklies I put on weight. Think you just have to work out what suits you.

    Hi - i have been doing this since January now and i usually use all my weeklies and usually some activity points aswell! I have noticed though that if i use them all i lose 0.5 or STS but if i use only about half of them i lose more. Maybe it's because if i use them all there's no room for errors in pointing etc and i may have gone over - so from now on i'm aiming to use half of them so if i make some mistakes it shouldn't take me over the 49. Good luck!

    This is DEFINITELY what works for me - after a bit of trial and error I either have to point everything 100% and use the 49 this way, or if I go out and can't point, I can only have half my weeklies :)
