Ooh a shiny new thread! I'm rubbish at staying on long term threads. Forget to check/read/update them! Quick update... Joined weightwatchers last may and love the pp plan. Never done WW before. So far have lost 90lbs (6stone5.5lbs). I still have 8/9 stone to lose but I'm working on it lb by lb Can you please tell me your best 2/3 pp snacks. I eat a lot of the WW bars especially the rich toffee one it's lush! But I have a huge no of pp to use each day that I often eat 3 or 4 of them in a day and it's costing me a fortune!
Vajazzler - that's an amazing loss, well done you. How many points are you on a day? I'm on 29 which is OK but I certainly have no trouble using them up! Curly wurlys and cadbury's Fudge bars are both 3 PP. The little Mikado stick things are good as you can have a few for a couple of points (can't remember exactly how many). Think 2 finger KitKats are also 3 PP. Or how about something like this - I made them yesterday for DH who runs part of the way in and out of work so needs something to fill up on afterwards. They are not low point because of the sugar and butter but they are packed full good stuff like oats, dried fruit, seeds and honey. I cut mine in 24 peices at 5 PP a piece. Like I say, I wouldn't be suggesting them unless you had points to use!
Can I come on board? Am doing WW online and now 5 weeks in. So far I am 4.8kg (about 10lb) down and hit my first goal which was My baby weight from DD (DD now 4 months old) another 5kgs to lose to shift DS' baby weight (he's a strapping nearly 3yo).. Am on 43 pp per day as am Breastfeeding.
So far it's been ok. I havent been eating all my weeklies but have this week so am not expecting a loss this week. But being gentle to myself as I don't want to risk my milk supply. Precious little opportunity for exercise as DD is a Velcro baby. Lots if walking is about it.
Sanuk I think that's a good objective! I've only just started exercising this week, but I've lost weight every week, ranging from 4lb to 0.5lb
I have find it really helpful to aim for mini goals - each silver 7, each time I drop into the next Stone bracket, and then there's 10% and 15% and the 25lb lost goal. This means I have a new target every 2-3 weeks.
I've definitely found I can't use all my weeklies. I can use about half for a decent loss.
Hello everyone, missed the end of the last thread! I am trying hard to maintain, but probably blew it last night, DH took me out for Valentines night ( first time in 14yrs), but improbably won't need to eat for the rest of the week, just can't do the rich food now. So it seems anyway. My 2-3point treats are ,Eton mess, made with total 0% yoghurt 2pp and Foxes crinkle crunch biscuits 3pp for 2. Also discovered Cadbury mini eggs 8 eggs are 3pp, or 2 Guylian seashells 3 pp.dont have nay of them very often,but nice if I need a little opulence . HTH
Trinity - no need to apologise. The beauty of this thread I think is that we can all be honest and we are all different. 11.5 stone on someone a foot shorter and slighter than me would be understandably overweight but for me it would be great (just a small matter of 2 stone to shift first!) Hope you're feeling better by the way. Organisation is key I find. Maybe cut yourself some slack today, do the best you can with what you have in your cupboards and then get yourself better prepared for tomorrow.
WI tomorrow for me. I'm hoping I've lost another lb or 2. I will be approx 20 points over for the week (Sunday's lunch out really threw everything) but jeans feeling looser. I'm telling myself that at least I have tracked everything so I know just how bad the damage is!
