    And so you should be! :T. How much more before you maintain?

    Seems many SW things are try once MrsR. :(

    Just settling down with a cuppa. A friend tried to persuade me to have a drink earlier. I refused but was very tempted. ;)

    1st 4lbs to 10st target and at this rate I’ll have my flat tum for late summer. Hopefully

    I'm thinking of dieting and did SW in the past. Does the online password still get posted weekly? Also is SW still the way to go nowadays, what with fitnesspal and other free diet apps

    You'd be very welcome to join us. :)

    You can't access the website any longer without joining so no password posted. If you did want any syn values then just ask.

    The main difference with SW is that it's not a diet . With mfp you have to count/limit calories and exercise so there's the chance that you'll feel hungry and give up. Also SW isn't about limiting calories, it's about eating a balanced menu of the right healthy foods and limiting treat foods.

    Weight Watchers has changed quite a bit so that now it's almost a copy of SW.

    If you have old books, the old plan will still work but best to go to a group even if it's just the once and get new books (the plan has changed a bit, basics at the beginning of the thread ) and the introductory talk. HTH

    Went for a walk this morning...I'm sure I'll learn to enjoy it eventually but for now it's about getting the body magic habit in place.

    Food for today:

    B: Mixed berries, plain yog, hi-fi bars x 2
    L: Chilli & rice
    T: Bolognaise, pasta, salad

    I discovered the Aldi lighter than light mayo which is actually very nice, so I've been putting a light drizzle of that on my salads for a few syns.

    Well done vegastare on SOTW.

    Thank you chrisv for new chart.

    I am very pleased to report -4.5lbs after WI today. So lost last week’s half pound plus some more. Especially after two meals away from home as well, quite a confidence booster to know I can make good decisions about food.

    New SW mag for sale today, plus it was Tasters. Did the Mexican Sweetcorn Salad from the Free Food on the Go book. Very refreshing with lime juice and fresh coriander. New Countdown offer with book starts next week.

    This gorgeous weather is perfect for salads and other non-stodgy foods. And makes it really easy to drink lots too. Long may it last!

    Poundsinbucks x
    🥳🥳 SW -6st 3.5lbs 🥳🥳

    D - HM lamb and chickpea tagine (from freezer, brought from home), couscous with salady bits)

    HEA1 - cheese
