    Just wondered what the general feel was regarding propoints. Who prefers points or propoints?

    I have a mixed feeling, I think it's because I was sooooooo used to the old points system, almost knew it off by heart!

    Finding propoints abit fiddly. Having to put four entries into the calculator (which I think the buttons aren't too clever) to work out the points instead of two entries on the old system.

    However, I do like the idea of free fruit! As well as an extra 49 weekly points.

    What does everybody else think?

    I have to say I was initially pretty skeptical and thought I'd be back to Discovery pretty quickly but am quite enjoying ProPoints. I'm not losing anymore than I was previously and agree the extra info is a bit fiddly but I do enjoy the free fruit and veg. I was just getting to the stage before of roughly knowing how much things would be and the change happened so I was a bit peeved (I'd only been doing WW since September) but am now coming round to the propoint thing.

    I still find the calculating of points far more unpredictable than with Discovery. I often think I can guess things then they turn out to be horribly wrong!! Heehee. :)

    I like ProPoints better than the old Points :D I think it's helping me to pick better food rather than low-point alternatives of bad food, but that's just me :)

    I have to agree. Totally loving propoints! Took a few days to get used to and the calculator is a must but im finding it quite easy now and best of all I was 4.5 lbs down this week so I give it 2 thumbs up:D

    i like the pro points plan as when i was on discover i almost always went over my points daily and then i would say i had blown it and carry on eating, but now i just take a few from my weekly points and i am sorted and still on track
