The start of a long journey ... help needed!

Hey there,

Well! I joined weight watchers this evening and have officially put on 4 stone in 3 years since stopping weight watchers. I am the biggest I have ever been.

Lots of feelings right now... scared I wont succeed etc.

Any tips out there for someone who is a bit of a picker when it comes to snacks!?

I can have 32 points a day but going to try and have 22 points a day for the first week.

Thanks for reading!

PS. does anyone know how to adjust the ticker or get rid of it? I cant remember my PIN.

Hi - welcome back to the world of WW! I'm in a similar position to you - I lost about 3 stone with WW several years ago but have gradually put it back on. :sigh:

Just think though, we lost the weight once so we can lose it again!

My favourite snacks are velvet crunch crisps (1pt) and Walkers French Fries (1.5pts) - couldn't do without my crisp fix!

Once you have your first loss under your belt, I'm sure you will feel more confident that you can reach your goal. You will find this forum an inspiration, I know I do - I could spend hours browsing!

Good luck.

:happy096: Your food looks great - you are keeping within your points too so I am sure you will see a loss on your 'official' WI day.

Hope you're feeling better.

How bad have I been today ....... very very bad! Not only have I had a double decker at 5.5pts but I had 2 slice of fruit bread while I was out. I haven't got a clue how many points were in that! :eek:
