    This is my 8th week on WW and I have noticed my attention to counting points properly dropped so this is why I am starting this diary. My allowance is 18 points a day.

    All comments are welcome!:)

    The basic recipe for two people is:
    150g paella rice 7points
    1 onion chopped
    1 clove of garlic chopped
    1 red pepper chopped
    1 tomato chopped
    1 pint of veg or chicken stock
    few strings of saffron but if you don't have any don't worry
    30g frozen peas 0.5 point
    100g small frozen prawns 1.5 points
    AND 2 small chicken breasts 4points or cup of cockles 1points or small chorizo 2points

    In a big pan in frylite sear chicken for few minutes so its cook outside but not inside. Take it out and put on a side. Put onions into a pan and cook for 3-4 min, add peppers, garlic and tomato and cook for 5 min. Add rice and stir well for few minutes until is mixed well with vegetables. Add stock, seared chicken, green peas and the rest (prawns, cockles, chorizo) cover with lid and simmer for 20 min or until stock evaporates.Serve with wedge of lemon. Enjoy.:)
    Basic recipe with chicken and prawns in 6 points.

    I think so. one packet makes a pint of jelly and it is four serving and each serving is something about 10kcal so i think it is free. It is great when I want a long lasting snack as I eat one cup of jelly for 15 min!:)

    You are welcome. It is very motivating when people letting you know they are reading your posts:) I noticed I am feeling more in control of what I eat this week because I want to be honest on with what I am writing in here:) Have you got a food diary?

    I have to agree about the paella!!:D I have a slight variation on your one but it is really yum and filling!! I put smoked paprika in it instead of saffron - it's a great dish for 6 points!!

    Good idea with smoked paprika. I wanted to make it look authentic and yellowish and couldn't think of anything else than curry powder or saffron to do this job:)

    Today I haven't been very wise with my food choices(so much bread!) but managed to stay within my points.

    I am very nervous about next week and my diet. My BF has got bday and we are having big nights out on Wed, Thur and Friday. On top of this got big family lunch on Sunday and I am cooking it plus bake a cake:) i LOVE BAKING CAKES!:)

    If you got any ideas what can I do to survive coming week let me know.


    b: 2 toast 1.5 ww jam 0.5

    L: 2 sliced of bread 1.5
    ham 1.5
    mayo 0.5
    salad 0

    S: crumble 3

    D: chicken kebab with salad and pita 8.5?

    No exercises. Planning on doing some tomorrow morning. Hate to say but feeling very good with no booze:) It has been over a week since I had a drink and I have notice I am less hungry because I am having more points to spend on my food instead doing -3 every day for a evening glass of vino:)

    Have a good weekend everyone:)
