    Hi all
    I joined weight watchers last friday, (weightwatchers virgin).......I would never admit this to anybody i know but i weigh a massive 22st7lb!!!!!!!!
    would love to blame my pcos but in all honesty i love my food. i love to much of the bad stuff. i also love red wine and creamy sauces and cakes, but enough is enough i have a 14 year old son and a partner who i love dearly and i have just hit 37 and all of a sudden it has hit me i could be so so ill weighing this much. So 3 months ago i kicked smocking into touch, reduced the red wine dramaticly, now to face my biggest challenge get a healthy bmi!

    I hope coming online i will get another lot of support. and advice if i go wrong (still very confussed) i have 50pp which all my friends are very very jelous of i think this may be a massive amount

    Greek yogurt and berrys 4pp
    coffee 1pp
    crumpet 3pp
    honey 1pp

    total 8pp

    bagel 4pp

    mayo 2pp
    lettuce 0pp
    coffee 1pp

    salad 0pp
    mayo 3pp

    Total 15pp

    Hi Sharon

    I joined ww last Thursday evening so we are newbies together!

    I'm worried that I am eating too many of my daily and weekly points however I keep thinking that ww wouldn't give them to us if they didnt want us to have them. My advice (and I am only new) is to eat as many of your points as possible, if you reduce them too much now you will have to reduce them as you drop in to the next stone bracket so make the most of them whilst you have them.... x

    I have decided you are right, even if i do not not want more food i can lay off the low fat stuff totally for time being. Also this morning decided to try and even points out more so

    Breakfast, bagel 6pp, banana 0pp, honey 1pp, coffee 1pp, greek yogurt 2pp and fruit juice 4pp!!!!!! teach me to point before it hits the lips
    total 14pp!!!!! such a lot for breakfast i know.

    being a lazy sod today, other than a quick walk with dog zero exercise planned i need a rocket up my arse!!!!!! may try and see if i can sort junk/spare room out will keep me busy and less chance of picking food i really dont want....

    Maybe I should take some of my own advice!!!

    What sort of a dog have you got? I have a border lakeland x and he needs tones of exercise which i suppose is a good thing! At lunchtime i did 3.5 miles with him but really he needs a good 5 miles to properly wear him out and even then he would just keep going!!

    I work from home quite a bit so I know what you mean about keeping busy to stay out of the kitchen cupboards!

    I have a bulldog (laziest breed typical) he is a rescue bulldog, I was only fostering him until vet found charity to pay for treatment (skin cancer) this was last October. 2 weeks after having phoned vet, because of financial crisis no charity willing to fund. Very tearful 13 yr old son. A week later a couple of thousand lighter dog had operation and is fine!!!!! But rather lazy. We have to drag him out 3 times a day only for short walks to make sure he does not get overweight (pretty ironic)..... I am norm a cat person but jack the bulldog is pretty special xxx

    So how are you finding things so far??? I know due to massive point difference it's not same, but I am determined to lose weight so all rather positive this side xxx

    Awww bless Jack the bulldog! I don't think Alfie will ever slow down!!!

    I hope I'm not tempting fate by saying it doesn't feel like a diet as i've really enjoyed it. It's teaching me a lot about portion control which slimming world didn't.

    I know there's a difference in points but we still have the same end goal and that's to lose weight and keep it off... We can do this!!!!

    3 x 12 hour night shifts... Ouch!

    Your diary looks good hun... Might give the pitta pockets a whirl

    I've seen a few other people have crumpets for either about 6pp I think... Not sure which ones they are but I think I'll have a look into it! I love them with marmite and cheese!

    Football is pants... Luckily my hubby doesnt like it however he does like F1 which I have got into by default!

    Edit: asda chosen for you crumpets are 2pp!!!

    Hey Hun here to subscribe to your diary.
    Try and use all your dailies if you can they have been set at 50pp because that is the amount you need. I also stated my WW journey at 50PP a day And struggled to eat them all at first but things like a milky coffee or fruit juice as you found will soon help use them up.
    I wouldn't worry too much about exercise at the moment just get your head around diet and the food side of things I lost my first 3 stone with pretty much no exercise.
    I'm so pleased you have started a diary it really will help xxx

    Hi nessa
    Thanks for popping bye. I think because you have been there done it, had roughly the same points as me, I trust your advice..... I think maybe when this first week is over I will relax more, as long as I get a loss... I have scales at home but I am 1 stone to heavy for them to register, how bad is that!! But I think also better as I have to totally trust the plan xxx

    Yeah concentrate on your first week a day at a time if you follow the plan you will lose weight and then that will spur you on for the next week. I know that 50PP seems like an awful lot of points and at times I used to think how the hell can I lose weight eating this much but the plan really does work so trust it and go with it. I'm down to 43PP a day now and sometimes miss those extra points so enjoy then whilst you still have them!! How is your day going today? Xx

    Most crumpets are 2PP each but 5PP for 2 but double check as differant brands can vary. Xx

    Thanks! I checked the tracker for the asda ones and for two it says 4pp, it doesn't round it up unless you have 3 crumpets and then it rounds it up to 7!
  16. nessa123

    nessa123 Well-Known Member

    That's ideal. Just remember if you ever had 3 in the same day 2 for breakfast and 1 for supper for example then it would be 7pp for all of them rather than 4pp for breakfast and 2pp for supper. I hope that makes sence!! Xx
