    Im just finding it really hard to believe i can loose weight with this diet
    is it for real i can eat anything i want as long as its within my points and after some time ill see results?
    im not saying it doesnt work, cos you people are proof it does

    After doing it for 3 days i feel much better, as i was eating one meal a day and loads of snacks . the last three days ive had breakfast, dinner and tea

    im really excited to see results and i feel good on this diet

    I lost 3 stones on WW. I suggest you write everything down you have, weigh everything and keep a good check on your points.

    Have you worked out how many points a day you should be on?

    It is also worth buying the WW magazine as it always has lots of good recipes and ideas in it.

    Good luck

    ive worked out how many i get a day, i get 20, although the last few days ive been using about 15 of them as ive been full from having meals when i want.
    im bidding on a starter pack on ebay for this year
    My mum did weight watchers a few years back and still has some of the stuff which may be of help
    can i ask if any of you exercise along the way, im not a fan of exercise but if it helps i will, im getting wii fit asap which im hoping will help

    Thanks for all your kindness

    ok thanks

    i do the odd bit of walking and ocassionally feel the urge to do a bit of yoga

    Till im back at college im not really doing much.

    my aim is to fit into my size 12 skinny jeans properly again
    i can only just about get into them in a squeeze, but they dont look best attractive haha

    so as long as i stay in my points range i should see a difference right?

    Its hard to belive it works but it does ive lost 9 1/2 lb in 3 weeks!

    I would try and use more of your points, I lost 1/2 an lb more the week i used all but 1 - 2 points in a day

    and yes eat anything u want as long as u stay in your points
    Tuesday night is my choco night i use my left over points and have two bags of malteasers

    I try and exersize daily ive been ill this week so havent

    I dont use the exersize points for food though, I use the exersize to tone and target my main problem areas, no point loosing weight where i aignt fussed before the bits i hate

    It's important to get some exercise, even if it's walking. Louisa's a new Mum so she's doing the herculean job of several people at once so she's getting plenty of exercise but the rest of us need to tone up. I've seen a lot of small bums this summer that are so NOT toned that they are worse that bigger but firmer ones! LOL
    There are often special offers on-line that aren't too expensive. I'm doing WW on-line as you get all the tools to help. Just for 3 months.

    I wanna add something, this week i been ill and not exersized even though i was in my points my bodys used to atleast a 30 min work out every 2 days so, if you start exersizing keep it something you can regularly do because i hadnt done my regular i STS this week

    So i would say if you can only garentee yourself a 15 min walk each day every day just do that if u say your gunna do an hour work out each day and after 2 weeks u cant be bothered it dont do u any favours hth

    well as soon as i have wii fit again im guarenteed to do 2 hours exercise per day, because i find it really fun, and its definatly a good workout lol, im always walking so i should be fine i hope, usally have a look in clothes shops and stuff

    well i hope i loose a few pounds before 2 weeks time because i have a gorgeous dress for a friends wedding party.

    i accidently went over my points by one today :(
    its because i brought a sandwhich from asda thinking it wouldnt be that high in points

    But it wont hurt will it?
    because i hadnt used enough points previously

    Just be careful how much under your points you go or you could end up gaining at your wi You shouldnt save more than 4 a day and you should use them by the end of the week.
