    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 :(

    It scares me how much these diets change over the years. The weight loss must have been much quicker back then. I'm going to try to keep under 10 syns (so why do they say this is short for synergies .... porky pie marketing!) a day max and only have syns every second day or so .... and my syns will mostly be CD frozen choc tetras.

    :eek: that IS high. I admit that I'm having to battle my natural behaviour to limit fruit as it has been drummed into me that you should have more veg than fruit due to the high level of natural sugars.
