    I've read a lot about how some people do and others don't... I was wondering if anyone has tried with and without and if there was a difference? Xxx

    BeckyT Always trying!

    I always have better losses when I use all of my weeklies. Everyone is different so you just need to work out what's works for you and your body x

    I also lost more using them as I felt as I didn't deprive myself. I either save them for a treat or share them between the days :) x

    I suppose they're great, especially if you fancy a treat :)

    Can't say I've noticed any difference either way, to be honest. I have weeks where I'll drink all my weeklies (I say drink, as 49pp nicely covers 7 pints of cider), and weeks where I'll leave them and stay sober, and I'm tending to lose in either case. When I'm getting a sts or a gain, it's when I've gone over on my points completely or eaten bread. Bread makes me gain no matter what I do otherwise, but that's a different story entirely.
    At the end of the day, no two people are going to be the same and you've got to decide what works best for you.

    I've been told by the last meeting leader that she sees the best losses with people who eat between a third and a half of their weeklies......

    I have done all sorts with mine and lost some weeks but not others!! I dunno! Works for some!!

    Be interested to see what happens this week. Had a bit of a melt down and ate all bar 4 of my weeklies. 0:) oops!

    So, ate all bar four and lost nothing this week! Think its completely individual! Best loss was week 1 for me and I ate 20. X

    Next week I may try eat only half then. I've tried a few ways- not eating them lead to a binge, sharing them out between the days made me feel like i had to eat them all and now I'm trying to use them purely on a weekend and be good all week. It's trial and error I guess x

    I find i feel better knowing i have the extra there just in case. I have a history of binge eating and if i'd ran out of points but still wanted a treat i'd probably end up going mad with it. Least this way i can say well i fancy this or that so im going to have as i have points. No binging or guilt afterwards. I tend to use all of mine.

    Howie It's a way of life...

    I have never used them. I decided a really wanted this so on the whole gave up alcohol, bread, pasta and rice (only bread I would eat was small Hovis with cooked tomatoes which was always pointed!). I always stayed within my daily points, and never used weekly or activity. I know the ethos is you can eat whatever you want, but for me the reality is that if I wasn't in control, temptation would lead to failure. With this method over the length of the plan I have averaged 2.7 lbs weight loss per week. Find what works for you and go with it I say :)
