    Do you have, what you consider a treat, every day or save one day for a bigger treat.
    I usually have an alpen light bar after lunch and a highlights and a ww biscuit after dinner but im thinking this might be too many treats and a bad habit. I also have a special treat on a Friday.

    As long as I stay in my points I'll treat myself most days. I know a lot of people prefer not to waste points on sugary stuff but personally I can't live without it and my sweet tooth hasn't done any damage to me weight loss wise.

    i have low pointed snacks/treats after my dinner like crisps (1.5pts) iced gems (1.5pts) jelly (0pts) jelly tots (2pts) merangues (1.5pts for 2) things like that, but i have a right sweet tooth and i need treats like that to keep me on the diet. i never (bar once in 8weeks) go over my points and it hasnt affected my WL either. although i have cut out bread as that really does slow my losses down!

    Personally I wouldnt even consider something like that a treat, that would just be something Id have in my points allowance.

    A treat for me is something like a meal out or a takeaway :)

    The reason I do WW is because nothing is off limits, you tell me I cant have something and Ill want it. If I know I can have it most of the time I dont actually bother lol

    I have quite a high daily points allowance so I allow myself a low point treat every day and then save points for a higher point treat on a weekend like a meal or a bottle of wine. That's why I like weight watchers, it is totally flexible. And like others on here i can't cope without a treat most days, certainly a sweet one.

    I dont really count anything as treats cos I just have what I want - in moderation of course ;)

    I would count meals out, wine. takeaway as treats cos they're something I dont have all the time.

    Snap!! If I get something like that in my head I'll just cave and binge. I've saved myself a fortune not having take aways not cos i can't have them but because i don't seem to want them now I don't view them as naughty. Ive had some new trainers and a handbag instead :D

    Its just like the old 'wet paint' thing - the rebellious child thats inside me still has to touch. Same with food - tell me I cant have it and I want it all the more. Just bliddy minded really :D

    I too tend to have treats daily... pink n whites seem to be a sure favourite with our ww friends and at .5 points each then you are sure to stay within your points... Mumzys tip for a gorgeous treat is pop your pink n white in the microwave for 10 seconds and OMG it's devine :drool:
    Mumzy, we gotta spread your word to all our ww friends.... lol:talk017: heeee heeeeee :D

    I probably have a takeaway... I've managed to cut back on these, instead of having one, maybe two a week [well 4 a week when I was at my worst, 3 years ago], the fella and I have 1, maybe 2 a month, and one meal out generally speaking.

    And if it's Indian, instead of having a starter, curry, rice, bread and poppadoms, we share a starter, have curry, and share the bread. Obviously he still gets his heaps of rice and poppadoms. I only like the red onion-y stuff that comes with them though :p

    Agree with the flexibility of WW. I am happy that I can have anything I want! :)
