Hi all!

I started WW Propoints on 05/01/12 as want to lose a bit of weight before my wedding in March. I have been a lot more overweight in the past, but just want to shift the last few pounds. I am a self confessed wine lover, and so its been tough for me giving up my evening glass of wine or two, however I have had NONE this year (6 days, woop lol) and am aiming to stick to a couple of glasses at the weekend as don't want it to hinder my weight loss.

I want to post my food diary on here as am always browsing the site, and find the WW one a bit well boring really!

Not quite sure how it all works, but food diary to follow...Neen x:D

Can I ask, does anyone else find that the points database on the Tracker on the WW site is not that great?? Only I am struggling to find some things, or the correct amount etc...also have found it seems to conflict a bit with books?:confused:

Hey,

Here to follow...

Diary looks great..

I'm on 32 pp per day as well :)
As for the Jaffa cakes (there so yummy) u will find with a lot of products that the point value may increase when you consume multiple values of that food as points are calculated on a rounded off system so for example 1 slice of bread is rounded down to 2pp however 2 slices gets rounded to 5... Does that make sense?

Best of luck for your weight loss u will get loads of great support and tips here x x

Hi ladies, thanks for following and for the kind words :)

I thought that was the case re the rounding off/jaffa cakes etc...darn it!

Rachel, do you mean Banrock Station wine, is it a lower alcohol one?
Sooo enjoyed my two ickle glasses last night but staying off it now til thrus eve after WI-if i have lost may treat self to a little glass :D

Can anyone clear up a fruit juice query for me, I got the impression from a lot of peeps diaries that if you drink the 100 % squeezed juice, then this is 0 PP? Can only see vaule for sweetened juice in book? Not too good with caffine so have to avioid diet coke etc so just wondering if can drink juices once a day without pointing....:confused:

I started the same day as you and like you and a self confessed wine lover. I had a glass on saturday night and loved it but the points just shock me, wine is evil points wise. Like you will steer clear until weigh in nght when i can have a glass to either drown my sorrows or celebrate.

Hi all lovely to have some people following and to help me keep on track. I hope you all had a good evening ? Realised roast potatoes are a whopping 4PP each but when got to carvery last night they had mash so had a scoop of that, did however have a spoon of cauliflower cheese so will need to recalculate it all and then update diary later. Taking my little one to the park this morning to meet some friends so that should be a good walk although I'm not factoring in activity points as yet...

Have a good morning ! X

Hi Natalie ! How are you coping without the wine ? I did not really find it a prob until Fri and sat....did not drink an awful lot in the week before. Just little and often... Now its seldom ! Good luck with your weigh in, what time is it on Thursday ? X

Hi all!

After the encoragement of using all my dailies yest I thought "ok then!" and munched 3 jaffa cakes and a glass of 100 % pure OJ last night totalling 6 PP together so managed to use all pints and have two weeklies (rock n roll!)

Bit miffed as did the daft thing of getting on scales at gym today which have not moved so was a bit de-motivated, topped this off with weighing on own scales @ home (not digital)which also seem the same :eek: been trying so hard!

Sticking with it, will see what the WW scales say @ WI on thurs!

Food for today:

1/2 pint skimmed milk over the day in tea/coffee 3PP

Breakfast:
4 Belvita biscuits 6pp - eaten on the run between work and gym @ 10am

Lunch:
Curried butternut squash and red pepper soup, own recipie - no oil, potatoes etc so 0pp
3 x Ryvita 3PP
Philladelphia light 1 & 1/2 TBSP 2 PP
Slice Parma ham 1pp

Dinner:
Home made chips with fry light so allowing 2PP? Will prob have like 8 chips?
2 x low fat sausage 5pp
1 poached egg 2PP
2 Spoons of baked beans reduced sugar 3pp
Ketchup 1pp

Activity=45 min Spinning class

Snacks:
6 almonds 2 PP

Think some fry crisps may be calling me later......we shall see!

Total for the day 30/32
