    Hi Everyone,

    I have been on and off the slimming world wagon for a long long time now and not really getting anywhere, I have just been browsing your threads here on WW and do you know? In all my years I have never given WW a go, and it looks really good!! What I like about this is that you can eat out much more easily etc and grab things on the go more effectively!
    What I am wondering is, should I join up to a group? Or go it alone? What do you guys think would be best?
    I really want to give it a go....at the mo I am doing Slimming World on my own, and finding it okay, so might be able to do WW on my own if someone could let me know of sites where I can find the basic points values for stuff. I looked at that one in the sticky threads about eating out etc...what a fab site that is!!!
    I know that WW has worked for my mum and sister in the past, but I have never tried it!!
    Feeling very positive about this!!
    I think the reason that I often fail on SW is because I go great guns for a few weeks then get very bored...but it looks as though with WW you can vary things much more etc....
    Looking forward to ANY advice that you can offer a complete novice!!

    Hi there!

    Im sure youll LOVE WW. If youre going to do it alone, Id suggest getting a Shopping Guide & an electronic calculator to help you.

    Once you get the hang of things youll be a dab hand at working out the points on just about everything lol

    Youll also find loads of good point saving suggestions on here, things like changing your bread & marg to lower point varieties can make a huge difference.

    If you need any help at all - just shout :)

    Depends on the bread! Can be anything from half a point to 2 points. I think an average is about 1/1.5

    If however youre going to Tescos, check out their own range of low fat food. Everything has WW points on it :)

    Great that you want to join the weight watchers program. I have been doing this kind of diet for more than three weeks and I really like it. I don't join a special weight watchers group in my home town as I don't think it is really necessary. The group here in this forum is great and they help me so much. So probably joining this group will be enough!
