Come on, all ye who quit over the holidays (like me) It's free to rejoin, so no excuses.

I am Colditz, I weigh 12st7lb, and I have a 10% goal of 11st5lb

My weigh in day is Tuesday, I have 20 points a day and mostly I wish to spend them wisely.

Go go go!

SmugColditz Thu 11-Sep-08 14:04:58

Don't tell me you are now all 9 stone sad and I'm the only greedy pig who put half a stone on since July?

RGPargy Thu 11-Sep-08 14:19:20


Can i join? I'm also on the Five-stoners thread but thought if this was WW specific, it might also help me!

Here's my spec:

I'm RGPargy, I weigh LOTS and have a 10% goal of LOTS.

My weigh day is a Monday, and I have 26 points a day but am seriously considering switching to the Core plan.

SmugColditz Thu 11-Sep-08 14:22:30

Yes, you can join, and YES it is weight watchers specific although non exclusive

Any tips and tricks?

My trick is to roast a chicken regularly and ALWAYS have cold chicken in the fridge to use. That way, all I have to do is add carb and veg and sauce (and cheese for the boys!)

I also only buy quavers, never any others, as I don't like quavers.

Potatoes are very filling, and low in points. When I have a potato rich week, I do well.

RGPargy Thu 11-Sep-08 14:27:30

Hmmm tips? The only tips i can give is on how to go OVER your points as that's what i seem to be doing lately! I have discovered tho that having about 4 or 5 cups of coffee per day at 2.5 points each cup really doesn't help matters.

I've just had a look at the core foods and there is loads of stuff you can eat without measuring, which sounds brilliant for me.

I would love to do the roast chicken in the fridge thing but unfortunately i am fussy and only eat breast meat so unfortunately it would get chucked away!

I love quavers. Yummy!!

I'm going to Core it up from Monday after my weigh in.

SmugColditz Thu 11-Sep-08 14:30:49

how come 2.5 points a cup of coffee? do you have sugar and creamm?

RGPargy Thu 11-Sep-08 14:34:47

2 x sugar
2 x coffee mate

Shocking, eh?!! shock

RGPargy Thu 11-Sep-08 14:35:32

I've gone mostly onto tea now and only have one coffee a day (if i must!) so hopefully the problem with not losing weight will right itself soon enough!

SmugColditz Thu 11-Sep-08 14:36:35

2 sugar is half a point, are coffee mate spoonfulls really 1 point each???!!!!

RGPargy Thu 11-Sep-08 14:49:41

Yup!! You can get lower fat coffee mate, but as i'm using the normal one at home etc i have to put down the true points! The virtually fat free coffee mate is only half a point per two teaspoons so it would only be one point per cup. I suppose i could buy that or be more healthy and just drink water!

SmugColditz Thu 11-Sep-08 14:57:20



no wonder you go over your points, I am shocked at coffee mate!!!

Skimmed milk?

RGPargy Thu 11-Sep-08 15:04:32

I know, bad isn't it! It's always the things that we love that are the worst!

I dont really like skimmed milk in coffee so i think i'd prefer to have a coffee as a treat now and then and just stick to tea and water as i dont have sugar in tea and dont mind skimmed milk in that either.

floaty Thu 11-Sep-08 15:34:47

Can I also come back ...I really need something to keep me mon track.I am 12stone 4 pounds and really want to lose 2 stone.Can't remember my 10% might recalculate on the website ...finding it difficult to get t the meetings so trying to keep up online

SmugColditz Thu 11-Sep-08 16:17:06

Your 10% will be about 11st4lb, floaty.

RGPargy Thu 11-Sep-08 16:17:17

Hi Floaty.

I'm a Monthly Pass girl and love all the online stuff! Couldn't live without it all now!

cheekysealion Thu 11-Sep-08 16:32:10

I dont go to meetings but get weighed at work once a week (thursday)
and follow ww points...

I am cheeky, and a fat sealion weighing 15.12 shock

I like to try and get as much as i can for my points.. so any low points snacks ideas welcome

SmugColditz Thu 11-Sep-08 16:41:41

Sealion, mushrooms and frylight will be your friend.

cheekysealion Thu 11-Sep-08 18:50:29

sounds good


SmugColditz Thu 11-Sep-08 20:44:59

Or fried.

They have nil points so make a tasty snack with a little salt.

RGPargy Thu 11-Sep-08 20:52:41

I've heard that frylight is minging - is this true?

cheekysealion Thu 11-Sep-08 21:07:48

i have the butter one and it is fine..

i spray it on corgettes before i roast them

Helga80 Thu 11-Sep-08 21:16:27

Can I join please?

Not been on any of the previous threads but have been doing WW for 6 weeks and have lost 10.5lbs so far.

I weigh lots and have another 8lbs to go to my 10%.

My weigh in day is Monday, I'm on 23 points and desperately trying to drink more water and each less crap wink.

SmugColditz Thu 11-Sep-08 21:25:00

No, it's fine. If you get the sunflower oil one you can't even taste it.

RGPargy Thu 11-Sep-08 21:31:15

OK great.

Hello Helga and welcome!

Helga80 Thu 11-Sep-08 21:39:34

Thanks RGPargy (love the name by the way).

Finding it hard at the moment - had a seriously crap day yesterday and resorted to chocolate to feel better sad

Drew a line under it though and have managed to stick to my points today, drink my water and even did some exercise so onwards and downwards hopefully hmm
