I've been dieting on and off since I had my son but am now at my heaviest ever and really must do something about it. I've done WW before so am thinking I'll give it a go without going to the meetings but can anyone tell me how many points I'm allowed if I'm nearly 15st? blush I need to lose 3 stone.

10/12 stone 20p
12/14 stone 22p

Its diffeent now, it takes into account your age, your height and your activity level. Would you like me to check yours for you smirnie?

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 15-Jun-09 16:07:09

thank you smile

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 15-Jun-09 16:09:45

using this

i should be on 22 - which is what i am on (as over 12 but under 14)

smirnie Mon 15-Jun-09 20:00:36

According to that site I should be on 25 points.
Suwoo - is that how you would work it out for me too?
Thanks all - I will join you on the other thread!

suwoo Mon 15-Jun-09 20:47:33

Sorry just got back in from my (ww) meeting. Will work out both yours shortly.

smirnie Mon 15-Jun-09 21:23:56

Thanks Suwoo.. I'm 37 and 5ft 8.

Don't do any regular exercise at the moment although I intend to start swimming. My job is fairly active, although no lifting etc

suwoo Mon 15-Jun-09 21:56:29

Blondes, how many stone are you? You use that number in your points, so if you are 13 stone it is 22. Although you do get 2 more per day if you are 'occasionally sitting but mainly standing' and 4 more if you are 'walking most of the time'.

Smirnie, if you are in the 14 stones and you are 'occasionally sitting but mainly standing' you will be on 24. You would go up to 25 if you were 15 stone.

I think I have made that sound very confusing..its not though.

12 thought might be 13 at end of week sad

fairly active and 35 5ft 7

suwoo Tue 16-Jun-09 10:42:29

Ok, so if you are in the 12's and give yourself the 2 points for 'occasionaly sitting but mainly standing', you would be on 23.

Why do you think you will gain this week?

the 15inch pizza on fri

the chinese and wine on saturday

if you are going to be, then blonde was very bad!!

suwoo Tue 16-Jun-09 15:41:32

You never know, you might be one of those who 'gets away with it'. Were you trying to have a 'last supper' weekend before you started???

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 16-Jun-09 18:32:26

not at all, been on it 5weeks

but just needed wanted pizza as dh did

saturady was out with friends and had ameal oooked and was a set menu

suwoo Tue 16-Jun-09 20:49:25

Well, there are definitely worse things you could have had. Good luck with your weigh in smile

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 16-Jun-09 21:14:47

but thank you

suwoo Tue 16-Jun-09 21:25:43

Spot on! Curry.

See there are small mercies grin

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 16-Jun-09 21:27:39

oh yes

indeed there are grin

suwoo Tue 16-Jun-09 21:29:41

If you make the right choices at the chinese, that is about the best eating out choice you can make.

Wine is only 8 points a bottle wink. Less than 'volvic touch of fruit' dontcha know.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 16-Jun-09 21:34:47

it was a set menu so had no choice and tried a bit of everything blush

where at home i always have char sui pork 4p and then 1/2 rice or noodles so another 4/5

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 16-Jun-09 21:35:56

8p a bottle?

had several large glasses so prob neare 2 bottles

<blonde hangs her head in shame>

thought it was a very good weekend grin

suwoo Tue 16-Jun-09 21:36:14

I always have chow mein when being good. Trying to cram as much food in as possible before the baby is born and I have to start counting again grin

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 16-Jun-09 21:39:42
