WW nursing plan

Anyone done the nursing plan? I've just started but 40 points a day seems rather a lot. I'm eating them happily, just wondered if I should expect to lose any weight or not?
I also wondered if to see success I should avoid eating the 49 extra weekly points? Baby is a month old but my second and I have tons of milk and breastfeeding is well established (she's jumped from 20th to 25th percentile after putting on 2lbs and growing 2 inches).

No. I found it was too much . Sorry.

I'm doing this and I'm bfing my 4 month old. I use all the points available (I'm greedy Wink) and have lost 12lbs in 5 weeks.

I don't have scales so no idea of its working for me, but am eating every single point this week as a trial. I'm 25lbs over my pre baby weight so hopefully I'll still lose.

Yes, it worked very well for me and I lost a lot of weight and then put it back on when I stopped sticking to the plan. Grin.

Use it to adapt your eating plans for life. Good luck.

That's enciuraging (that it worked anyway) Ragwort.
I've just been to my week one weigh in and lost 2.2lbs.
I ate all my 40 daily points, plus 48 of the 49 extra weekly points. I never felt hungry, and my milk supply was fine.
I think it's working as its encouraging me to make healthier choices, and I am Eating way more fruit and veg. Will see if the weight loss continues, but I'm happy so far.

Suffercate, how many points do you get? I feel like 40 a day is tons, especially with the extra weekly points.

I just signed up to 3 months of WW Online. My lo is 8 months old now so is having food as well as nursing so I think I get half of the full nursing addition. I get 33 daily pro points. I'm planning on using all my points as I found from trying to diet in previous months that if I cut down too much it affects my milk supply. I'm hoping the nursing plan will work for me.

Two dog did you eat your weeklies as well as your dailies? I have been, it feels like lots of food. And what was your average loss like? I read o should only aim for about a lb a week.
Michelle that's my plan too, I have no wish to crash diet. I am going to slowly start exercising as well, as didn't at all while pregnant. I am not in a rush to lose the weight, but I do want to be back in my normal clothes by Christmas - that's more than six months away and I think it's a reasonable aim.

Not always - 40 points was enough for meals plus the obligatory maternity leave cake. I did join the gym too.

As for speed of weight loss - I think it took me around 3 - 4 months to lose 2 stone

sufferkate · 10/06/2015 09:16

GinIsCalling I get the 40 points plus 49 weeklies, it's a lot of food but I'm gluten free too and a lot of the replacements I have are a lot higher in points

Watching this with interest as I need motivation to stick to the plan! Good luck everybody xx

GinIsCalling · 12/06/2015 21:57

Weighed in today and lost just under 2lbs, so 4lbs total so far. Very pleased! I ate all my dailies and my 49 weeklies, plus five of the 15 exercise points I gained. Going to try and only eat half my weeklies this week. The nursing plan is meant to just be 1lb of a week so I'm happy so far, sure it will slow down soon though.

I got double nursing points when I was feeding twins, which gave me a daily allowance of 57 points! (When the plan changed to pro points, the daily allowance used to be 29 plus I got an extra 14 for each baby). And I still got the 49 weekly points on top of that.

I lost loads of weight but ate really badly - plenty of chocolate - so it was really difficult to adjust to the lower points when I was no longer ebf.

I put all the weight back on over time, but restarted WW online at the beginning of the year and it's coming off slowly this time.
