    Hi!
    After trying so many other diets, I have decided to try WW. I hope it goes better this time. I'm tired of other restrictive diets. I believe I cook very healthy, but I think I've lost my portion control after two pregnancies one after the other. I've lost most of the weight on a very strict diet, but as soon as I stopped I put it all back on.
    Looking for some support here as I don't believe I can get this type of support within my close family. They are all thin and healthy and don't need to lose weight. :)
    I was encouraged to try ww after a friend has lost 50lbs on it. I'm hoping to lose 40lbs.
    thanks,
    swissie

    Calculating

    Here is what I had today so far.
    Breakfast:
    2 slices of bread 4pp
    1 apple
    Lunch
    Pasta 5
    1 chicken nugget 1
    green salad with dressing 2
    cooked green beans with olive oil 1
    Snack
    coffee with skimmed milk 0.5
    ww yogurt 2
    a handful of blueberries
    Dinner
    Salad with dressing 2
    green beans cooked with olive oil 1
    a slice of bread 2

    This seems a lot under my daily allowance, but I'll see if I'm feeling hungry after dinner.
    So far so good, since I can snack on fruits I don't feel hungry very much.

    Hi Lou,
    I'm trying to do the propoints but I guess I've got that one wrong. It should be 1 pp then. Thanks for the warning. :)
    Your progress seems great. I hope I can get that far.
    I've tried SB and Montignac diet before but I found them hard to stick, when I'm cooking for the whole family, breakfast/lunch and dinner. On my side of the family, there are a lot of obese people including my mom. I'm really trying to prevent it happening to me. I decided to try WW as everyone seems to be so happy with it. I just find it hard, because I live in Switzerland and WW here is all in German and they have slightly different online program. The online tools are not the same as in US or UK. I can't go to the meetings here either as they are also in german and I've two little kids at home.
    I'm already very motivated with all the support in this forum.
    Thanks a lot, xx

    Hi there!
    I also cant do the online ww because I live in Paris and my French is not great. I am lucky enough to find ww products in most shops though the range is tiny compared to London where I used to live.

    I am not even going to tell hubby that the meals I make are ww friendly. I doubt he would realise the difference and as long as I have cheese and baguette with the meal h will be happy!

    Hiya!
    Oh are you married to French? My husband is from here. He also loves his bread and cheese in the evenings. I get bored of that sometimes so I make a soup or salad. I put the cheese and bread on the table for him. :)
    Here, there are some ww products in only one of the supermarket chains but they are a little bit more expensive compared to the other products. I have the calculator and I have some of the ww cookbooks so I'm trying to do it alone. We'll see how it goes. :)

    Breakfast
    ww cereal with skimmed milk 3pp
    Coffee with sm 1 pp
    Apple
    Lunch
    Homemade rice with beef, aubergine and carrots from ww cookbook. 11pp
    (I'm not so sure on that one as the recipe was using lamb and not beef. I also didn't eat a whole portion but I'm calculating it as stated in the book)
    2tbsp yogurt 2pp

    Snacks
    Apple
    Coffee with sm 1pp
    2 cookies 5pp

    Dinner
    Less than 1/2 portion same rice as lunch 5pp
    2tbsp yogurt 2pp

    Makes 30pp, which is 1 over my allowance but I still didn't use most of my 49 so I should be ok.
    Tomorrow I'm planning to cook another dish from the ww book. Something with prawns maybe. :)

    Yes, my husband is French. I do the same.... just put the bread and cheese there and I am usually not too tempted. I want to be slim and healthy too much :)
    Your menu looks good! I need to start using ww recipes!

    Hi there,
    Of course you can join me. I totally understand what you're talking about. I have two kids too and I've to do a lot during the day and in the evenings I'm just too tired. I'm also doing a course. An online course that I can study on my own time, which I don't have right now. I'm trying to motivate myself to lose this weight otherwise I know I'll just keep getting depressed too. Let's support each other. I didn't have time to write my diary today but it's something like this.
    Breakfast 4
    Oats with sm 4 pp
    Coffee
    Lunch 9
    Stir fried beef and veggies 5
    Pasta 4
    Snack 8
    Cookies 8
    (ran out if fruit but managed to do some shopping late afternoon so should be ok tomorrow)
    Dinner 7
    Bulgur salad with veggies 4
    1/2 slice of bread 1
    1 tiny price of cheese 2
    28/29
    Not too bad considering the cookies. Did an hour if body pump class at the gym this evening but no idea about it's worth in pps.
    Tomorrow will be a day without cookies.
    Have a nice evening all

    First WI and I lost about 2.5lbs. Yay! I'm quite keen to continue now. Although I saw this on the scale on my previous diet trails, so I shouldn't get too excited. I will believe it's real after another 2lbs. but yay! :)
    Today I was invited to a friend for lunch, so I had to eat whatever she made. Lucky for me she always cooks low fat and all but the problem was the cake we ate after lunch. I was in such a hurry this morning and didn't have time for breakfast. I also just had fruit for dinner after that cake. I want to try to stay within my points during the week, because I will need the weekly points in the weekend.
    Breakfast
    Nothing
    Lunch
    Wholewheat pasta with Barilla pesto sauce 10
    Salad with tomato and mozzarella 5
    Snack
    Coffee with sm 1
    1 slice of cake 12 (oh my!)
    Dinner
    Apple and a plum

    Total 28/29 pp

    I love that I can have fruits without thinking so much about it. All the other diets I have tried were forbidding them at least for a while.
    how is everyone else doing?

    Weight Watchers Pro Points
    Hi, I just joined weight watchers on Tuesday and this forum looks great. I did weight watchers before but hadnt seen the new pro points. It seems to be working well for you guys. Are you finding it easier or harder than the old points? I'm having a hard time getting my head around it.
