    Hi Y'all. Ive been on this forum a few times now and thought I'd keep my own diary. I have been to ww since the beginning of Jan and to date have lost 17 lb. I have also done SW in the past and although I was successful - I lost weight after both my children - I find this quite restricting since they changed it in 2003. I like the fact that on WW you can eat what you like. My favourite is chinese food and I save a few points and have a chow mein at the weekend.

    My downfall is savoury foods especially crisps and sandwiches!

    I am going on holiday to Majora in June and want to lose as much weight as possible by then. I'd like to be a size 14 again.

    I have in the past reached my target weight, twice - after the birth of my children but each time the weight has crept back on. I think it is harder to maintain your weight than to lose it.

    I'm not sure that I will post every day but will try to.

    Hi Joanne, welcome to the WW forums and great idea to do your diary on here! I find the support I get thru my diary really helps keep me going on bad days!!

    WOW at 17lbs!! I have done it all month and only just lost 4! You are doing amazingly- whats your secret? Whats your daily points allowance if you dont mind me asking?

    Well what a day. Ive eaten all my points for today already and its only 4.30. (i'm actually at -2!) had curry, rice and nann for my tea. It was very nice but not very filling for the points. I think I would have been better with a jacket potato and some salad. Looks like and early night for me.:(:(:(

    Well today is a new day :happy036:I ended up having a ham sandwich and a packet of crisps before bed!!. So ive had to adjust my points for the next few days. I worked out that if I reduce my points by 3 today and tomorrow I should be OK for Monday which is my wi. I've got my twin nephews to look after on Monday so its easy to diet as I dont have the time to eat - i should arrange to have them every day! Ha Ha. I do have them four days this week So on them days I should be ok.

    Monday is a nightmare for me. My wi is not until 6.30pm so I tend to not eat a lot (in fact hardly anything) until then. And I spend most of the day running about. After school my youngest has a football lesson and my oldest goes kickbocking. I then have to rush to get to the other end of Mansfield in time for wi.

    I know that I shouldn't but went on my scales this morning. My weight has stayed the same! I know that I have a couple more days yet but I do get dishartened when they show no loss.:cry:.

    To make matters worse my sons will want to make my breakfast tomorrow morning and they will want to make me scrambled egg on toast. I can see it now the toast will be covered in marge and at 1.5 points per egg it will make for quite a high point breakfast. I think I will ask them for marmite on toast (with no marge) and hope that they not got me any chocolates.

    Might have a WW ocean pie with veg for lunch and maybe a jacket potato for tea. Weekends are really hard as the kids are at home and they want to eat all day!!!

    I know ive done really well so far and at the moment I feel a bit fed up. I'm finding it really hard not to break my diet:break_diet:.

    Oh well, my shopping is being delivered from Tesco in a couple of hours and i put loads of salad and veg on it - lets hope I can stop on track.

    :sign0163:please any words of wisdom???

    Got to wait in for my shopping this morning and then my son has a swimming lesson and then, off to visit my parents later. Might make an effort though and try and fit in a walk with the kids in between it all depending on the weather - is not great here and my son has an earache!! Dousing him up with calpol at moment.

    Managed ok today in the end. I had a WW ready meal with some veg for lunch, some crisps for a snack and jacket potato with bolognaise for tea. It was an ASDA one which worked out a 3 points for half a tin. It was very nice and well worth the points. I have enough points left for a WW toffee bar and a couple of glasses of wine and have saved two points for tomorrow. I have ended up cooking for my family tomorrow so there will be 6 adults and 4 kids! Oh well at least if I cook and can keep a track on my points.

    Well I had my wi tonight and am a little disappointed. Although I managed to lose a pound I fell a bit fed up that after all that hard work that is all I lost. Trying to be positive so will carry on and see what happens next week.

    :happy036::happy036:Morning, I got on my scales again this morning and have moved into the next stone. I'm not sure if I should drop a point or not. I think I might just to be on the safe side. I feel a bit happier now after my wi result last night.
