hello everyone

I've just signed up with WW. I'm following the plan online as got a cracking deal with them for 3 months. I won't be attending class at all although I do think it might have been more motivational with 3 kids and working from home there aren't enough hours in the day as it is let alone finding more to travel to class. I do have a points calculator donated by a friend that I will use as well though as I hear that the points calculator on the site isn't great.

I'm starting out with quite a high points allowance (I think!), I have 23, but still quite a bit of weight to lose so that explains it. I have lost some weight by myself but I honestly put that down to a change in medication. I need to change my eating habits and lose the rest :)

I was following SW recently and not knocking it at all as it's a fantastic plan if you can get your head around it, I can't and need something that is less flexible that I can't take liberties on as it were lol.

Nice to meet you all x

Hi Welcome to WW - i am 15stone 8lbs and i am on 23 points too, i started out on 25 point. it does sometimes feel like a lot but other times it feels not enough.

As long as you took the quiz accurately you will be on the right amount of points.

Welcome to WW - I am 15stone 7lbs and on 23 points too. Somedays I am finding it hard to use the points (does this make sense)? We can all get there together. This is a brilliant place for support and advice and tips. I go to a class to get weighed but am thinking of weighing in myself on the Wii (save myself some dosh). :D
