    Hi all
    Im new to weightwatchers and thought I would say Hi :D

    I started today but probably wont have much success for the 1st couple of weeks as I have come over after 9 weeks on cambridge and expect to gain at least 7lbs in this 1st week due to eating again but hey ho its gotta be done lol

    I love Cambridge and it really works for me but at £45 a week just for my food its quite expensive when you are a family of 5:eek:

    I also start college doing an Access to Higher Education course in a couple of weeks and would prefer to be eating normally. And at the end of the day I have to face food sometime and learn to eat healthily at some point so why not now:)

    I cant get to meetings as they all clash with college or start before my DH is home and I dont fancy taking my 3 to the meetings and they dont do sitting quietly lol, so any help greatfully recieved.
    I have ordered the 2010 books (food and eating out guide) off ebay so should have all the proper info by the end of the week and hopefully I can find enough info on here to muddle through till then ;)

    Anyway enough waffling and Hello to all x

    Cheers Nicky, wow hats off to you having 4, I only just about manage with 3!

    I am doing Psychology, sociology and Biology and hoping to go on to be a midwife but its very competitive so may go into neonatal nursing :)

    Definately agree it will be different to being a stay at home mum but am definately looking forward to using my brain again lol

    I did sw after cambridge once and it took me a month before I started losing properly so am prepared for the stall (but obviously hoping it doesnt take so long this time lol)
    Hope to get to know you more over the coming months x

    I didnt manage to have any lunch today as met up with a mate and was so busy chatting that I didnt even think to eat (am so used to not eating food on cambridge lol) so have added some extra bread to my planned dinner but will still have 6 points to use so may steal one of my eldest little kitkats :eek:;)

    Hi good luck Hun, your weight gain shouldn't be too bad if you've gone straight onto ww? I did CD many times, I also start college and have 3 children, I've 4.5 stone left to lose and am 6 months into WW

    Look forward to seeing you shrink
