    I'm starting back at WW next week after over a year of not going due to being pregnant, it's time to shift this baby weight! I've bought the books already and have been having a look through them trying to work out a shopping list. I used to eat a lot of jacket potatoes, can't believe they're 8 points now!

    What are the things that you buy weekly to eat and how many points are in them? I need to get a shopping list together and get myself ready to start!

    Thanks for that, really helpful, there are things on that list I would not have thought of, going to give porridge a try for breakfast for something different and filling, and pittas for a change to bread :)

    Just wish I liked more fruit, I only eat apples, pears, bananas, grapes and pineapple!

    some of the things i buy:

    kelloggs variety pack of cereals (range from 3pp to 5pp, and no measuring needed)
    ww bagels (4pp each, lush with some low fat marg on)
    selection of ww ready meals, as i eat them probably 5 days out of 7 every week
    curly wurlys (3pp each, great for a chocolate fix - they last longer if you keep them in the fridge!)
    hartley's sugar free jelly pots (0pp for one, 1pp if you have two - they're great for an easy, low point dessert)
    tons of fresh fruit, blueberries, apples, grapes, strawberries, bananas!

    don't tend to get all that much as my mum buys alot of the staples like potatoes, veg, chicken breasts, etc. these are just my snacky type things :)

    Also, you can still have your jacket spuds. Yes, they are more points now but you also have a higher points value to play with, plus your weeklies.

    Back in the old days I would have considered a 10 point dinner outrageous, but it's fairly typical for me now. It has taken me nearly a month to get my head round this.
