    Well after my first very bad week after 5 100% ones in which I have only lost 6lb I've decided to commit myself to writing my food diary on here in the hope it keeps me on track and if I'm doing anything wrong then someone will correct me xx

    I've written off today (tuesday) but will start writing it as of tomorrow my aim is to lose a stone for Easter x

    Thank you I know I shouldn't grumble but my weight loss was as follows

    Week 1. -3lb
    Week 2. -2lb
    Week 3. sts
    Week 4. - 0.5lb
    Week 5. - 0.5lb

    Just got disheartened coz it was slowing down yet as I thought I hadn't done anything different xx maybe when I post my diary the answer might be visible xx

    Posting a food diary should help to see if there is something that needs tweaking.

    Are you doing any exercise or walking?

    Hi I'm new to WW and no expert so someone else may be better able to answer but from everything I've read it looks like your not eating enough. You should be eating all your daily points. Too few calories will cause your body to go into starvation mode.

    I'm on 29 a day and usually have about 6 pp for breakfast, 6-8 pp for lunch and 15 or so for dinner. I usually use about half of my 49 weeklies. Hope this helps.

    Good luck on your next WI

    Thanks for that ...I usually keep some back for a choc snack at night before bed ...I have eaten pretty low today I had a major splurge yesterday and still feeling pretty full from :( ...I'm not trying to keep points back it's just coz I'm not hungry I usually use about 10-12 for dinner so tonights tea was pretty unusual xx

    Thanks I appreciate your advice xxx

    Would you put a sample of your diary on here for me so I can see what you have xx

    Hi -my sample dairy is:

    B- 2 quorn sausages or 2 lean bacon 3pp
    and 1 poached egg 2pp
    OR:
    porridge w/ss milk 6pp

    L- big salad w/lean ham lots of veg 2pp
    & 3 tablespoons full fat dressing 4pp
    OR:

    Pitta or ww bread 4pp
    ham or turkey 2pp
    lots of lettuce,tom, pickles etc 0pp
    tablespoon mayo 3pp



    D- napolina mini pizza base 6pp
    40g mozzarella cheese 3pp
    tomato puree & italian herbs 0pp
    peppers,mushroom,onion etc 0pp
    & big salad w/full fat dressing 3pp
    OR
    60g dry weight rice 6pp
    100g pork fillet 4pp
    veg; peas, corn or carrots etc 6pp

    I usually have a yogurt or a couple of crispbreads with cottage cheese or salsa for a snack when I get home from work. I average 29-32 pp a day. I weigh in on a friday and that way I get to use my extra 49 weeklies for wine and crisps on friday and saturday night. I usually use about 25 weeklies and mostly over the weekend. I don't like low fat mayo or salad dressings and use points for the full fat version.

    Hope this helps. Good luck for this week.:)
