    Well, i havent actually started weight watchers yet because its on Monday but since Tuesday i i have resorted to my own plan to get me set for WW on Monday! I did lipotrim 2.5 years ago, went from 21 stone to 11 stone, maintained for 9 months and had an extended fleu de lis abdomino plasty which is basically being cut down the middle and across like an upside down T right round to my hips and muscle repair. recovered after 8 weeks and my bf dumped me in march 2010 11 weeks after my op. had to move out etc etc my life was in tatters, was totally having a quatre life crisis and started eating little by little more n more for comfort. And here i am now back up to 16 stone 11 pounds!

    Hey there!!

    Welcome and good luck with your journey. Sounds like you've had a pretty hard time of things lately. Well done for taking the first step towards your brighter future!!

    I'm doing propoints, and really enjoying it. There's quite a lot of us on here doing the plan, so lots of support and motivation!!

    :)

    Hey love. Sorry to hear you've been through a bit of a tough time recently - but you sound really positive and already are making amends - brilliant stuff! :)

    I'm doing ProPoints too and I'm really enjoying it - to be honest I don't find it a whole heap different to the Discover plan (I am eating roughly the same sorts of things).

    I prefer it to calorie counting (which I have done in the past unsuccessfully) because WW encourages you to make healthy choices - the thing is with CC is that you could have half a pizza for 500 calories, but you could have a much more healthy meal for less than that. I would give ProPoints a go, and if you struggle with it, there is always the old points plan to fall back on :)

    I think also the thing with calorie counting is some of it is a bit of guess work - I remember when I was doing it I was looking up things like grapefruit and I couldn't always be sure of the exact number. But I was being crazy silly with it and basically not eating.

    Menu sounds fab so far! xxx

    Definitely a new day - the thing is we've got to be able to treat ourselves occasionally otherwise it's not going to be sustainable - I know I'm going to have a day off points on Friday as it's my birthday! xxx
