    Hi guys, been yoyo dieting for a while and have decided to try weightwatchers as I never seem to last on diets that cut out loads of things! I'm 5'7 and I weigh just over 12 stone. I used to be ten stone but I've piled on the weight!! I'm hoping I can get some support here and give others support:) so here is my food diary! Feel free to make suggestions or tell me if I'm not pointing things properly!!

    Tuesday 01/11/11

    Scrambled eggs (4) with half a slice of easy single cheese added (1). Two slices of brown bread (4)

    Pack of Snax (2)

    Omelette (4) with 40g of cheddar (5) and two slices of honey and spelt bread (4)

    Pack of Walkers baked crisps (3)

    Extra points added for butter on the bread and oil for the omelette (5)

    TOTAL-32/29 weekly points- 3/49
    3 extra points used :( I'll get the hang of it!

    I'm going to try not use all my weekly points this week as I'm not sure if you still lose weight if you use every single one of your points! I'm going to try only use a small portion of them anyway and see how it goes :)
    Hopefully i stay good tonight as I'm babysitting and they always leave out loads of yummy things for me to eat while I'm there! I havn't had alcohol since last Sunday so I'm proud about that because usually I'll have a beer or a glass of wine when I come in from work/college.
    My biggest worry at the moment is the weekend. Today and tomorrow I'm staying in my parents house and visiting my grandparents etc. I usually binge when I'm home so I really have to avoid that. Going to go for a walk today and try to think positive about not eating my own weight in food this weekend! Sunday dinner will be the death of all my points :cry:

    Feel really disappointed in what I ate today. I wouldn't be surprised if I have a gain next week, and it's only my first week on ww. I'm sick of people telling me I've put on weight recently and I'm tired of not liking every picture of myself because I look so much bigger in them than I used to. Wish I could just stay within my points :confused:

    Saturday 05/11/2011

    Two poached eggs (4) with a small wholemeal bap (3) and low fat butter (1)

    Cream of vegetable soup (8?) with two slices of brown bread (4) and butter (2)

    WW chicken curry (8)

    pack of mini hob nobs (3) and small handful of pringles (2)
    coke zero (0)

    I might have a sneaky weigh in today. What do other people do when they feel like WW isn't going to help them? I shouldn't have used any of my weeklies :( :sign0163:

    Hi, I too am doing WW on my own at home, it's hard, Ive been off the wagon all weekend, but you know what, I'm just writing it off, and already planning exactly what I'm going to have next week. Ive got a few ww meals in, ww bagels and french fries in for lunch at work, and oats so simple porridge sachets for breakfast at work.I find if I pre-plan for most of the week, I find it easier to stick to. Don't give up, ww does work, just look at some of the stats of people on this forum. Thing is, it takes time, and it's hard to stick to some days, but treat it as a long term thing, and you'll get there. I started dieting at new year, and ive only managed to lose just over a stone, cos Ive yo-yo'd a few times, but hey, just over a stone off is better than another stone on, which it would be if I hadnt bothered trying at all!

    Thank you :) I needed that! I think I've convinced myself it won't work because it's not half as strict as any other diet I've been on. I love the everything in moderation idea and I'm just going to have to embrace it instead of convincing myself it won't work just because it allows for bold things like chocolate etc!

    Oh don't give up. Honestly we all have days like yours where we think what is the bloody point??? I agree with Karen, it's all in the planning. plus the 49 weeklies are there to be used, you don't have to feel guilty about using them.
    Even if you do have 1 dreadful day just start afresh the next day, don't give up or let the guilt bring you down. one bad day does not need to mean one bad week...
    we are all in this together xx

    My points reset today :) I'm not able to weigh myself though as there's no weighing scales in my new apartment. Gonna have to wait till the weekend till I'm at my parents house. Don't know if thats a good thing or a bad thing!

    So week 1 I used 37/49 weeklies (counting a point extra for a bit of skimmed milk in tea a few mornings)

    Bring on week 2!
