    hi, after reading these threads im wondering:

    - how many of you have gained or lost on the new diet?
    - have u used every single point?
    - do u find it easier than the old version?

    after trying the pro points and gaining in my first wk i decided to carry on with my old plan, i have found that it is easier. im just trying to get an idea of how all u have done.

    Tbh i found it tricky at first, but as my leader said you need to forget about the old plan and embrace the new one. I think its hard when you compare the old points to the new pp, but if you just start with a clean slate and forget about the old plan i think you can get your head around it. I haven't used all my weeklypro points not even half but ive always try to have all my daily pro points, and i have lost 6lbs in total.

    I gained in my first week too. I was pretty bummed - I was good and stayed on plan, but I did use pretty much all of my points. I'm not keen on the idea of cutting my points because all through my life I have eaten too much, apart from a brief period where I ate far too little, so I have no idea what my body needs or how to judge it for myself. I don't really have a hunger radar. If 29 ProPoints a day plus the 49 ProPoints a week is supposedly the minimum I need, that's what I want to stick to. I thought about cutting it down but I'm worried about becoming obsessive about it again.

    It could have been a number of things that caused the gain, but essentially it was either the way my body was reacting, or I wasn't eating the right sorts of food. I'm not sure if a 5 ProPoint ciabatta would have the same effect on my weight as 5 ProPoints worth of skinless chicken breast... So I am trying it again for a week, maybe eat more veg etc, and more protein (I love meat but don't eat huge amounts of it, same with eggs, pulses... can't stand fish though). I liked the old plan because I didn't have to drastically change the food I was eating, I just had to restrict the amount. But this one I think the type of food might be more important than the points value. I feel a lot more like I am "on a diet" on ProPoints, with all the counting and label checking and complex calculations, but that could just be because it's new. I like the premise behind ProPoints, encouraging healthy balance and so on, so I hope I take to it. But if it's not working for me by January I might have to rethink whether or not Weight Watchers is for me.

    Being a ww for years it's hard to get my head around how high 'healthy' food is in pp luke chicken pasta etc but like said the old plan needs to be forgotton and ww have scientifically looked into food and how our bodys use it.

    I've been tempted to go back but my losses were too slow and I'm more caref now weighing measuring.

    Tbh pp is only our daily amount less our weekly amount as it's like the old fast start, if it's hard add 7 pp on a day from your weekly that way if on 29 pp you'll have 36 pp a day and forget the weekly allowence?xx
