    :wave_cry: Hi,
    I'm new on here but have read this forum before & it's amazing!
    I used to post on another site but Minimins seems to have more active users so I'm coming on here instead ;)
    I've tried countless diets but now I'm firmly on Weight Watchers Pro-points.

    Looking forward to reading & posting on here more often :)

    Hello! I too am new and on the pro points! Have done it for 3 weeks and am getting fed up of fruit already! How're you finding it? My god send is bernard Matthews turkey! Has saved a few evenings so far! (sigh!)

    Hey :thankyou:
    Thanks for saying hi!
    I'm Finding it a bit hard at times... I can't eat fruit & I'm a vegetarian so no Turkey for me ;)
    But I have Carrot sticks & Quavers for 2PP which save me in the evenings when I want munchies!
    Have you had good loses so far?
    I'm thinking of starting a diary on here - I had one on another site & found it really useful :)

    Hope you have a good weekend

    Hi Carriegirl, Welcome to the forum.

    Well done in getting to grips with losing weight. My daughter (Irishlady) is a vegetarian like yourself and when you get to 50 postings you will be able to visit her diary as she is a wiz at the pp. ing.

    Do start up your own diary a.s.a.p. as we then know how to keep in touch and give you the support and advice when necessary..

    Take care ...:)

    Hello :welcome: to another newbie!
    It's so nice to have other people in the same boat to talk to :)

    i started on the 7th of january and lost 18 pounds so far. my doctor has put me on the xenical diet pills on wednesday so that should hopefully help me out a bit more, i was on the weight watchers diet but now that im on xenical i cant eat more then 5g of fat in every 100g , so that means most of the weight watchers are a no no :( so got to stick to real low low fat stuff. do u go to the weight watchers meetings? XX

    Kayee - No I'm not going to a meeting at the moment - I went to one at the end of last year but can't really spare the money right now. They were really good for support though & I may join one again if I don't lose much on my own :)

    I've posted a Diary now on the Weight Watchers Weight loss diary board - It's very long but I've tried to tell my story a little bit there :D

    Heya Hadl86 thanks for saying hi :thankyou:
    How are you finding ProPoints so far?
    Did you lose in your first week?
    I didn't so am still a bit demotivated by that but am sticking at it :)

    Hi Lou & Hi Limes :D

    Hope you are both having good weeks!
    I think I've figured out why I haven't been losing - I'd been under pointing quite a few things that I have every days oops!
    Glad I've found out now & at least there's a reason for my STS!
