    I was just saying I have gained back a couple of pounds during my break from dieting so it's back to counting WW points again for me.

    I want to get into that black Next short skirt I bought for the concert on the 1st of June. The zip doesn't do up all the way yet.

    I had a toasted sandwich for breakfast with lots of water.

    I'm going to make a vegetable curry or a soup for lunch.

    Good morning everyone.

    I've had a few busy and somewhat erratic days so meal planning has gone to pot. Plus felt queasy with the ABs so too many nibbles.

    Never mind normal service will be resumed shortly.

    The scale says I'm down a pound already.

    I think I needed a break from dieting as I was getting extremely bored and unmotivated.

    I want to lose a few pounds and get under 12 stone before the concert on the 1st of June. That is my new goal.

    I got to goal with weight watchers 10 years ago and I know it works , it’s just sticking to it. I’ve tried SW but it lets me eat too many potatoes! My problem is alcohol, once I drink I don’t care about my diet ! I am hopefully going to stick within my points all week and hopefully loose 3 next week

    That is really good.

    I also did WW before and lost a lot before my wedding.

    The mistake I made was thinking I could carry on afterwards and keep the weight off without tracking my points and it all went downhill from there.

    I stayed the same this week, which isn't a shock after the not great weekend I had. But am keeping at it, have 9 days until I go on holiday.

    I won't be dieting on holiday, but I am hoping I can carry on making good choices. If I can carry on with my low point breakfasts and lunches then it will limit the damage I think.

    Good morning everyone

    Drawingaline I too have stayed the same, which, considering the busy and erratic week I have had is actually a minor miracle. Don't worry it will be probably move in the right direction next week.

    I now have a few days free so I'm just going to catch up with myself and get back on it. Will try and do some batch cooking so I have a supply of home made ready meals for when I find myself stretched again.

    Well done on the weight losses, Wednesday and Hollowhead. Great stuff.

    Wednesday.....you raise an interesting point about maintenance. I think I too will have to think very carefully about how to maintain my weight loss once I have reached goal. I think I will find it easy to regain weight if I'm not careful so for me I think weight management will have to be a lifelong commitment.

    Morning WWers - doing rubbish here, half a pound on - sigh - I know what I am doing wrong, not eating enough and when I do I am not eating enough fruit and veg. I just can't seem to get myself organised shopping and meal planning.


    Still, I have come a long way and remain determined. I will never never never have an 11 as the first figure on the scales again!!


    You all seem to be doing so well, and this motivates me, so keep on posting, and some meal ideas would really help me as well. Not much of a cook at the best of times but must do better..............

    Yeah, just keep going Candy. You'll get there. My friend mentioned something called the Whoosh Effect. Don't know if there's any real science to it, but a lot of people seem to think there's something in it. Sorry can't do links but if you just google it you'll see what I'm talking about.

    Right Drawingaline.........today's menu choices.

    B........3 egg omelette, 20 g low fat cheese, 1/2 slice ham. 2pts
    L.........chicken Caesar salad, with 1 tabs low fat dressing 1pt
    D.........salmon with a sweet chilli sauce dressing, green lentils,
    Peppers, courgette, red onions. 2pts

    Snacks...... 3 crackers, 1 pt each, low fat cream cheese 1pt 4pts

    Plenty left for teas, coffees and maybe a couple of biscuits later. Hopefully will also be able to roll 4 over.

    I am aiming to roll 4 over each day, today and over the weekend because I will probably be eating out on Monday. That would give me 12 to play with. My normal WI day is Monday.

    I do like the flexibility of WW.

    On Wednesday I batched cooked some bolognese. I have got two portions in the freezer. Aiming to do a curry and a vegetable shepherds pie over the weekend. Again will cook extra for the freezer. I think it's worth doing that if you can because then you have got pointed home made ready meals to hand for rushed days.

    I think it has to be that way, for me anyway, as it is very easy for me to underestimate what I've eaten in a day.

    Morning WWers - doing rubbish here, half a pound on - sigh - I know what I am doing wrong, not eating enough and when I do I am not eating enough fruit and veg. I just can't seem to get myself organised shopping and meal planning.

    Good morning everyone.

    Well my couple of days back on plan have paid off. After staying the same for a couple of weeks I have lost 2lbs, so back on track.

    Dorothy......at least you know where you are going wrong. I will honest and say I'm still not one for actual meal planning so I try to make sure I have the "right" things in the house. That way I can cobble a meal together or find some healthy snacks. Of course it's much harder when I'm out and about and eating away from home.

    However, I do appreciate that in many ways because I live alone it is easy for me.....I just don't have too many "naughties" in the house.

    One thing I have found helpful is having a few tins of fruit in juice handy for when I get desperate for a treat. Zero points. In fact I try to take full advantage of "zero hero's" to fill me up.

    Today's menu........

    B. Banana pancakes, strawberries and yoghurt. 0 Pts
    L. Ham salad 3pts
    D. Home made chicken curry, broccoli rice, 8 Pts.

    Leaves me plenty of points left for nibbles and snacks.

    Gardening today.

    Good morning fellow weight watchers.....

    A new week. Popped myself on the scale this morning and I now have exactly 1 stone to go to reach my target. Wahoo. Feels so good.

    4 days granny duty this week but as they are only half days I'm hoping it will be easier to stick to plan. I should have more time to meal prep and I can eat more meals at home.

    Anyway just need to stay on track.

    A hearty brunch today.......full English, packed with zero hero's and just 2pts for bacon. Yum yum.

    Will take a Salmon salad for lunch with me. 1 pt for mayo.

    Dinner/supper will be courgetti bolognese. 3 Pts

    Well that's the plan......

    Have a great day.

    I only lost 1 pound this week as the vertigo/migraine threw me off. It makes me feel sick one second and then starving hungry for carbs when it wears off. I had a pizza at the weekend and I just had a leftover piece for breakfast.

    I did have blueberries and mango with it and it was a small slice of pizza.

    It's less than two weeks until the concert so I really have to get going.

    I just went to the shop and bought lemons, strawberries, onions and mushrooms.

    I have leftover brown lentil pasta for lunch and I will bulk it up with marinated mushrooms and onions and some steamed asparagus.

    I am having a veggie burger for dinner with a big salad, gherkins and mustard.

    Oh yes, I bought carrots too so I can have carrot sticks and salsa for dinner as well.

    Lots of water all day.
