hello everyone, this is my first week on ww i started friday morning.

i was wondering does it matter how you spend your points. all it is is that i am eating quite a few snacks (not so healthy). eg low fat crisps and ww choc bars and curly wurly, skinny cow lollies (oh my god can this really be a diet).

I also do manage my 5 a day and also have 3-4 litres water a day.

has anyone been successful at this and snacked. in other words as long as i stay within points will i lose.

thanks

Firstly - welcome to ww :) Secondly - yep, you can use your points on whatever you like! Which is why it's such a great diet ;) You're doing well to get your 5-a-day in as well though, and all that water, so good for you.

Good luck with it!

Welcome to ww and best of luck with it!!

Only thing I've heard is the more good foods you consume / wholemeal cereals / bread / pastas etc.. the better off you'll be in the long run, it will help your digestion system, fill you up longer (as they are slow energy releasing foods) and maintains a healthy metabolism (which we all need to burn the pounds in the first place!!)

I'm a snacker too, but have limited myself to about 4-5 points on snacks a day.. Best of luck though whichever way you do it!!

Also, well done on drinking all that water, am only managing about 2 - 2.5 ltrs a day myself - great for stopping water retention at TOTM and again, helps our metabolism burn those pounds too!! Well done!!

Yeah i tend to choose low pointed dinners so i can spend the day snacking lol. Then if i havent been particularly naughty i will be able to have a nice pudding at the end of the day ;)

ok i started ww at 15st 12lb and i admit i was def a snacker id have my 3 meals and roughly 2litres of water a day. i got down to 13st 1lb and because i was after dropping points i cudnt do it!! i found i was making allowances for my snacks that didnt keep me full but not for meals which would keep me full!!!
it can of course be done with the snacking but this time im limiting my snacks and starting off by making sure i spend the majority of my points on meals bcause i know this is the only way ill be able to keep going when i get down to low points!!

i def couldnt survive without my snacks but id advise anybody to try limit them!! (thats all in my opinion hahah)
