    Hey everyone this is my first proper post after a year of lurking! Lost 4 stone since last feb following discovery by myself but after losing motivation over xmas I joined a mens class last night to get all the propoints info as its just launched here in Ireland. Gained 3 lbs over xmas which was shocking cos I ate more then ive ate in the last year lol! Really liking the sound of the new plan so here goes day one of propoints! How is everyone finding it? I took one look at the fiddly wheel and said sell me the calculator now!

    Hello and welcome, well done on your previos weight loss!

    I started pro points when it first came out and had a couple of loses then gave up and the diet went out the window completly but im back on it now so hoping for a few good losses, I think it is about the same as the other plan

    Hi all, well this is my first week, i've joined WW online but I'm toying with the idea of attending a meeting. So far is seems to be going well. I'm still quite astonished at how may points I have been given as I think 62 is pretty high. But I am 26, 6ft 1" and 20st 9lb. Hope to use this site as a bit of motivation.

    Ah poor you! Our leader was brilliant, spent ages going through the entire plan, giving loads of examples and making sure everyone was comfortable with it before she unveiled the wheel....which led to a queue to buy the calculator which I am finding just brilliant.

    The wheel was stupid, it took our leader several minutes to get it to be accurate and even then she hadnt explained herself very well. I ended up having to help to the three ladies closest to me as they were struggling. Not that I was too much help I'm sure!
    I ended up buying the calculator too
