    Hi :)

    I'm new to WW after being on and off SW for the past 3 or so years. SW wasn't working for me and I was going from week to week gaining and losing the same 2-3lbs. Heard good things about WW and I've gave it half hearted attempts before but this time I'm determined to stick to it 100% and get back to my pre-university body. I gained lots of weight at uni and haven't really managed to lose it since starting teaching (year 6 adds to the stress!).
    Not really sure what I'm doing yet, so any hints and tips gratefully received! I joined online Thursday, but will be weighing in on a Sat morning. Will post food and pics (when I remember!) each day.

    Starting with Simple Start, then I'll move on to filling and healthy or pro points, which is best??

    Looking forward to starting :) xx

    Hi and welcome to ww. I'm here to subscribe.

    I've always loved ww having lost weight with different points plans over the years. I had lost 15.5lb but have managed to put n 4.5 lb over the last 3-4 weeks. I am starting afresh on Monday myself and doing pro points. I love filling and healthy but feel I need the structure of portion control for the first few weeks back on plan.

    I'm sure that teaching Year 6 pupils would cause me stress too!

    Good luck with your weight loss journey. There's always someone here to ask if you have a problem or question, that's what I love about minis.

    Nic xx

    Hi. Hope you don't mind me popping by. I'm a teacher too and I find this has pros and cons in relation to weight loss. It keeps me very active and you can't snack while you work but staffroom are a nightmare for cakes and biscuits! The stress can also make sticking to the plan and not eating rubbish tricky. However, I have found in the past that I cope better with all the stresses when I'm a more healthy weight. I did Simple Start for one week, F&H for two weeks and points for the last week and a half. Now I'm back at work, I do find pointing easier as I never really know what time I'll be home from work or what horrors will be in the staffroom!

    Good of luck with your journey

    No I don't have a diary as I also blog, but might start one soon. We've had the kids back for two days and I already feel overwhelmed! How long have u been teaching?

    I'm in my third year now. Really hating it at the moment and thinking of a
    Career change! Making me miserable all the time! How about you? X

    Exactly the same! I've been trawling the job pages every day since we started back. Unfortunately, nothing seems suitable and I would have to take a massive pay cut. This is my twelfth year. I love the kids (year 3/4 SEN - MLD & SEBD) but it's the pressure and work load. Still, at least the weight loss is going well :D As is yours I see - well done!
