    Here begins my journey to losing 4 stone on Weight Watchers. I've already lost 1.5 stone by cutting down on junk food and calorie counting but I went to my first group this morning for a more permanent and structured approach.

    Simple Start - day 1

    Breakfast: 6 ryvita crackerbreads and 30g light Philadelphia cream cheese
    (ate brekkie before I went to my first WW group so I know it's not perfect!)

    Lunch: chicken breast and mashed swede

    Dinner: egg, chip and pepper bake aka 2 sliced roasted peppers, sliced potato and 2 eggs

    Snacks: packet of low fat ham and some lychee with a teaspoon of honey

    Simple Start - day 2

    Breakfast: 2 warburton's brown thins, one with 35g light Philly and one with marmite

    Lunch: 0% Greek yoghurt with sliced peaches, strawberries and teaspoon of honey, followed by homemade popcorn
    (Not the best lunch :eek: but I'm ill and needed some comfort food)

    Dinner: 2 eggs, small tin of baked beans and 4 turkey rashers with peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes

    I've done S/W on and off for years with limited success and even more limited motivation. I'm struggling with Simple Start but I think the propoints route will be good for me. I have been calorie counting for a while now and successfully lost weight. Wishing you luck. :)

    Thank you. I have been managing on 1300 calories for a while now and finding it relatively easy. I have been told I will have 31 daily PPs, so in addition to my weekly PPs, I should be able to eat more!

    Not so simple start but still watching calorie intake

    The WW consultant 'encouraged' :rolleyes: me to do SS for the first week, despite me explaining that it wasn't going to work. I like the flexibility of being able to choose anything to eat and I am now able to limit my portions and amounts, so I don't need SS in the way that I might have done a few months ago.

    So here it is........................

    Breakfast: 0% greek yoghurt with 25g branflakes (the cereal not allowed on SS) and 1/4 banana

    Lunch: 2 egg omelette (mushrooms and a few slices of ham)

    Dinner: chicken and vegetable stew

    Snacks: packet of wotsits (not allowed on SS) and 4 ryvita crackerbreads (ryvita not allowed on SS) with 30g Philadelphia light

    I eat quite a boring diet, much of the same foods but I try to do different things with the same foods.

    If you turn upside down ;) you'll see my dinner. It doesn't look as lovely as I'd have hoped but it was delicious.

    That big pan full of chicken, sweetcorn, peppers and tomatoes was only 380 calories or 6 propoints (0 PPs for peppers and tomatoes). It was enough for 2 decent sized portions, only I was starving so scoffed the lot. :D

    Breakfast: 5 ryvita crackerbreads with 30g light Philadelphia cream cheese

    Well, I had food in my bag and my colleague (I was in her car) said to me "let's find somewhere nice to eat" and the rest is history....

    Lunch: falafel, feta and roasted red pepper quesadilla ---- so so so amazing and totally worth it for less than £7 :D

    Supper: 4 turkey rashers and stir fried veg (peppers, onions, mushrooms and courgettes)
