    Hi Kerry :welcome:

    Good luck with starting ww Thursday, are you going to class or going it alone?

    I do use some ww products but try and eat more non processed foods when I can. I love the frozen lemon chicken risotto and take that to work when I'm working afternoons. The chilled sausage with onion gravy is good too although portion size is a tad small :) so I bulk it up with more veg

    Snacks I have fruit, yogurts, crisps, oatcakes with cheese/houmus or anything else I fancy at the time. Its just a matter of finding what works for you.

    Good luck.

    my stock items are:

    • extra light cream cheese with garlic and herbs
    • wholewheat pasta (same as white pasta points wise but keeps you feeling full for longer)
    • passata/chopped tomatos
    • baking potatos
    • frylight
    • herbs and spices (esp paprika)
    • fish such as scallops, river cobbler, crayfish.
    • chicken breast
    • Flora lighter than light spread
    • skimmed milk
    • kingsmill 50/50 crustless bread
    • crumpets

    Hello I'm going it alone! got a points calculator and might buy some of the books online. Thanks for the ideas. I feel like its gonna take me a while to get the hang of all the points, I feel confused already lol. I have already made myself a points diary chart to keep track of points through out the day to stop me feeling so confused! I know i'll end up forgetting what I've had otherwise. The first few days will be worst whilst I get the hang of how many points to have for breakfast and lunch and still leave enough left for tea. I sound really stupid dont i lol. How many points do you tend to have for your snacks?

    i have a tracker sheet you can print out, i'll attach it to here

    i think i've attached it right?

    i dont tend to snack if i do, i know i'll go over board like i have recently and binged. the only way it works for me, is no treats

    Oh wow thanks! thats loads better than mine lol, think I will use this instead! Yes I am thinking the same about snacks, you sound like me i find if i go with nothing between meals then i'm fine, but once I start snacking i find it hard to stop!!I'm thinking maybe apples and grapefruit just to keep my metabolism going. gonna see how I get on like that :)

    yeah i do snack on sugar free jelly, fruit and mini milks. the jelly is 0pts, fruit is pointed and mini milks are 0.5pts each. but i limit myself to one mini milk every couple of days or when my boyfriend comes over which is when i tend to binge.

    You'll do fine Kerry planning is the key to it for me. If I dont plan I get into such a mess. At the least I plan today what I am going to have tomorrow and at best plan the whole week. I usually keep 2 points back for a late evening snack while watching the tv.

    Planning is key! If i dont plan i go off track. I also think its important to snack. It keeps you "fuller for longer". Im very good with it though and have them at "snack times" :giggle: I refuse to have anything else and i get asked alot at work! I just know that the weight loss is worth it :D
