    Just found one of my old SW books, dated 1992 :D

    Thought you might be interested.

    Starting weight: 16 stone 5lbs
    Seems that I ended at 13st 9lbs

    Just red days (there was no such thing as green days then).

    Syns were called sins. I was allowed 5 a day.

    Healthy extras were called '2 for you'.

    One example of a 2 for you/healthy extra:

    1 apple with 8oz raspberries.

    Another example of a 2 for you
    1 slice of wholemeal bread

    Fruit wasn't free.
    Eggs were free, but only a maximum of 4 a week.

    Corned beef was free though:cool: I lived off that stuff :D

    Really interesting looking through that.

    :D I have a few of those. Not just WW. All sorts. I remember that each year I was really good and stuck with the diet for 6-9 months (well, not always 100%:eek:, but I went to the meetings:D)

    Then Sept to Jan, I'd go wild and eat everything in sight, ready to start again in Jan:eek:

    I notice that as the years passed, the dieting months seemed to get shorter:confused:

    Breakfast: One slice of wholemeal bread..dry.
    Lunch: chicken without skin. Lettuce and a tomato.
    Dinner: Lamb chop (fat removed) with veg. Gravy...1 sin

    Snack: fun size milky way

    Drinks: 1/2 pint of skimmed milk with coffees

    Oh my...can't believe I lived to tell the tale :D

    Yes...probably my bad choices...and yes...I know it's much better now:cool:

    Funny thing is, I thought it was amazing at the time. Think it was because I was used to calorie counting and I didn't have to with SW

    I used to make a corned beef pie thingy with onions, corned beef and an egg.

    Loved that stuff, and it was free :clap:

    I also did Cambridge when it first came out. It was just a tub of strawberry powder. I didn't have a CDC. Used to get it in the post.

    Totally free unless you blend it into a smoothie. I think its madness to count fruit

    I've just looked up fruit in my 1992 book.

    1 apple (5oz) 3 sins.

    High considering I was only allowed 5 sins a day.:eek:

    Hey...that's interesting. It only gives one ideal weight per height.

    5'6" is 9 stone 4.

    Wonder how the same diet can change so much.

    I remember doing WW years ago and everyone over 20 stones got 30 points a day. Now its all worked out on a host of things but its still the same points principle

    I ate corned beef til it was coming out my ears when I did SW lol

    Things were so simple in the olden days eh :D

    The first diet I did was with the slimming magazine club. Weekly meetings.

    There was a written plan of what you could eat, as food didn't have it's calorie value on....but...

    If you were 5 stone overweight, you could add 2 chocolate bars (which used to work out about 250 cals each).

    3 stone overweight and you got 1 choc bar.

    1 stone or less overweight (which I was at that time)...nothing extra. Just small breakf, lunch, dinner. 1,000 calories. I must have been starving :D No skimmed milk or low cal foods in them days if I remember rightly, so you didn't get much for you daily allowance.

    I was gutted when they stopped making it free :(

    I dont think the weight loss WAS faster then, the diets were just different. I did SW and WW before and still lost the same amount, only difference was I put it all back on then
