tinkgirl. I have done ww since Jan and have lost 45lb now. It has taken some time, but I see it as a long term project. 20lb to go now to get to top of my health weight. Use your bonus points - they make a real difference and you can enjoy some nice extras with them.
My number one tip is to find normal foods that you like. Quavers/skips are 2 points. 2 piece kitkat or curley wurley's 3 points. Vodka soda water and fresh time 2 points. It is a case of making normal food fit around.
Good luck you will really start to notice a difference in a matter of weeks
