    Hi, I'm Erin. Just starting WW today, hoping to lose 2 stone by September, in time for my holiday! I'm quite liking the whole points system, though. But just yesterday, I discovered that most of my favourite chocolate bars were 7 points! Eeep! But I'm going to try having a bit more salad stuff, quorn products etc. Just try to eat a bit healthier, less junk food I think.

    Welcome to the WW gang :)

    Theres quite a lot of lower point chocolate bars... curly wurlys and Crunchies to name but 2, its worth checking your books. Have you got the points value from a Shopping Guide?? 7 points for chocolate seems very high, even Mars Bars are only 5.5

    Hi there,

    I love eating Curly Wurlies as you can bite off each little rung on what I call the ladder and it lasts absolutely ages! As you can tell I've been desperate for chocolate before!

    Really? I'm doing it the cheap-skate way, just knowing my points and using an online point calculator, which told me that a Mars Bar was 7!

    The online points calculator often rounds things up.

    According to the Shopping Guide a standard Mars Bar is 5.5 points.

    If youre not going to classes Id really recommend investing in at least an electronic calculator, ideally a Shopping Guide & Eating Out guide too

    Thanks! I'll try and get the guides and the calculator ordered on Friday. Hopefully then it'll be a bit more accurate!
