    We are off there for tea tonight. Normally I would have Fiorentina - any ideas how many points this would be? I really don't want to go and have one of the light pizzas as I think I would feel deprived. I just want to use some of my 49 points for tonight - just wondered how many.

    If you don't fancy the leggeras, the lowest pointed "normal" pizzas (all classic base) are:

    Four seasons- 18PP
    Margherita- 18PP
    Pollo Ad Astra- 18PP

    There are a few for 20PP too if you wanted to know what those are let me know x

    Yes - for the whole pizza. I reckon I have used 13 points so far today so I still have the option of my weeklies if I still want it.

    What is different about the leggera ones that makes them so low in points?

    I wanted to thank you Crookedsmile but I can't see the button!! Thanks anyway x

    I believe the leggara ones have a hole in the middle which is filled with salad. So basically, it's just less pizza!

    My hubby laughs at the hole thing but I look at it as eating more salad and less carbs- I prefer the extra points saved for my choc addiction lol

    Just had a look at their online menu and I might just give one a try tonight. Not sure I want to use up so many weeklies on the meal tonight. I am out with the girls on Friday night and I just know that will get messy!!

    Thanks - having looked at the menu I'm going to go for the gustosa that Nomes mentioned - it sounds lovely. I just noticed your stats - you are about the same height as me and have done brilliantly - well done! I hope to be joining you in the not too distant future. How long did it take you to lose that much?

    Thanks :) I'm sure you'll get there soon :)
    I started in April and hit my official goal (10 stone 10) in September. Chipped away at that as I still didn't feel totally happy, and hit 10 stone at around the end of November I think, so been maintaining since then :)

    Thanks for the recommendation Nomes - I went for the Gustavo and it was lovely - and no, I didn't feel deprived. I shared a dessert with my husband - and I came away away really pleased that I hadn't used as many points as I could have done.

    That's brilliant, well done. It's great that you can have a meal out and enjoy it without blowing it isn't it :) do you need the points for the dessert? X

    If you know the points for the tiramisu - then I had about 1/4 of it.
    Thanks again

    No problem. The tiramisu is 14PP so probably about 4PP for a quarter :)

    Not too bad then - 18 points for the whole meal. Ruined it today with half a bag of minstrels at the cinema!!

    Ooops, those naughty minstrels hehe. But nothing is ruined- you did good yesterday, and you can be good the rest of the week, and maybe just do a wee bit of exercise? I ate and drank my body weight in tasty food and wine over the weekend but I know I can sweat it out :)

    I did do 45 mins of tough exercise class this morning and I am booked in again tomorrow morning as I have the day off. Am really enjoying the gym now I am into the routine of it. I like challenging myself at the tough classes to see if I can do more and more of the routines. The music is great for the Mel B Fitness Class - very good dance music (Rihanna, Katy B etc) which keeps me going. :)
