    Hi everyone,

    Went to my first class last night and have officially started today. Determined to get this weight off once and forall! I tried slimming world last year which was a total disaster and I just didnt get on with it at all. I'm a bit worried propoints wont work either :-(

    the only thing propoints restricts is quantity... you can have whatever you want, as long as its in your budget..!

    I'm in the "I shouldn't use all 55 points" mindset. But I guess that the calculations are scientific and I should aim to eat the correct amount even if it seems a lot x

    You should use them all and your weeklies!! I try just to eat my weeklies at the weekend- my wi is on a wed.

    Also discovered green tea- really has helped my weight loss alongside the plan :)

    i didn't get on with slimming world either.

    start as you mean to go on by having all you're dailies and most of you're weeklies, you can make adjustments later on if needed.
    i usually leave about 9 - 10 weekly points just incase i've made some boo boos on my counting especially if i've eaten out.

    i'm really enjoying Propoints, i'm eating loads and the weight is coming off.

    Hi I've also just started and have 31 each day. Does anyone know if it's okay to spread the weekly points each day or should you not really use them all?

    Bluekazanne, it's up to you how you use them but i would not suggest you use all 49 on the day before your weigh in lol

    I think you have to experiment with them because different things work for different people. Personally I only use mine on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and my weigh in is on a Wednesday night and that seems to work ok for me x

    You can do what you want with them. Whatever you prefer. I have 37 pp per day so i could use mine each dsy to round my allowance to 40 if i wanted to :) x

    Hi LEB,
    Do you have any tips for drinking Green Tea. I find it so sour tasting I cant seem to stomach it. Which brand do you buy and how many cups a day do you drink and do you add anything extra? Sorry, plently of questions!!
    Thank you.
