    Hello all, I started Weight Watchers today (well, counting in points, since I can't afford the actual meetings). I'm at my heaviest weight ever - 13 1/2 -14 st depending whose scales you ask. :cry:

    I've been a pretty terrible 'yoyo' dieter I suppose, I'd stick to a 1200 calorie diet for 2 months, lose 1 1/2 stone and then pile it back on and more when I went back to my binge attitude.

    I tried to get back on track with 1200 calories and I kept shaking and getting really dizzy so I spoke to my doctor and she more or less recommended I ditch the calorie counting (and slight obsessing) for a more leniant plan, so here I am!

    Might aswell get stuck in with my food diary then - please let me know if I'm doing this wrong:-

    Breakfast:

    Porridge (40g) and Milk (200ml) = 5 pts.

    Lunch: Tesco value fisherman's pie = 4 pts.

    One clementine and approx. 5 strawberries = 1 pt

    Snack:
    Ryvita Limbos crisps = 1 pt

    Dinner:


    Chicken = 4 pts

    3 Tbsp Coleslaw = 3pts

    1/2 average sized potato = 2pts

    15 grams Flora extra light butter = 1 pt

    1/6 of a tub of Asda GFY soft cheese = 1pt

    Salad = handful of lettuce and rocket and 5 cherry tomatoes (came out as 0 pts, not sure if this is right?)

    Snack: Weight watchers yogurt = 1/2 pt

    Total = 22 1/2 pts

    I suspected I may have, does anyone have an idea of how much 40 grams of porridge and 200ml semi skimmed milk would add up to points-wise? the online points calculator I've been using won't load up.

    150 grams of chicken breast cooked in a George Foreman Grill and just half of a potato weighing about 80 grams I should think.

    good luck hun x
