if you're motivated re join ww, i've been to ww's a few times and the time before i did lose 51 lbs. I did put back on around 30 lbs but i have since rejoined and have now lost 12 1/2 lbs, i tried to do it on my own but failed miserably. They have a new programme called switch, you can either follow the points system (full choice) or the no count where a lot of food is free, i'm following that one and to be honest i eat loads and am hardly hungry, although today i'm feeling constantly hungry, think it's down to feeling down and tired, but i'm not giving up i've just eaten loads of fruit and am going to start cooking the tea. Good luck with it

i have been intrigued by the switch programme but thought about doing it from home "in secret". i have just ordered the ministry of sound dvd that bridiej has as it sounds great. im going to really try not to just listen to it as background music!!!

Hi Rooksie,
I failed miserably on other points system but was also intrigued by the switch programme so I rejoined WW on Tuesday. So far so go, however I have been hungry a few times but I think that is because having done so many fad diets I don't actually know what or how much to eat any more. I'm sure it will get easier and once I've weighed in and realised that I haven't gained any weight I'll probably eat a little more. Good luck in whatever you decide to do.
Hugs
Sarah

Well I had a bad day today - started with chocolate fudge for breakfast and went downhill from there - well it was Mother's day.

Back on diet tomorrow, just hope I can limit the damage ready for weigh-in on Wednesday !

Good luck to all those resisting temptation and keep posting your successes

Hi everyone,
Had my first weigh in last night, I didn't gain anything , but then I didn't lose anything either .
I think I can track down the cause, Starbucks coffee. Silly old me thought it would be ok to drink as it is made with milk. Wronnnnnngggggg. 3 points in a small cup and goodness knows how many in a large cup.... I had 3 large cups last week. Must try harder this week or I'll be sin bined.

Oh well, never mind at least you didn't gain, when i first started back at wws I was drinking the kenco cappacinos (unsweetened) I've got one of those calculators that works out the points, so just as an excerise i worked out the points per sachet..... 1 and a half points each!!! they are nice but not that nice! I ended up giving them to a colleague to drink instead, who happens to be a size 8 at least you'll now know for this week. Don't they do coffee with skimmed milk? skimmed milk is free on the "no count"
Don't think I will have done to well this week either. Have done no excerise what so ever and haven't counted my weekly points at all, I'll be happy if i've stayed the same tomorrow is D Day

Wink Re: Dieter's for OZ

Good for you Teach at least you didn't put anything on. Mandi the things that you like the most always are there to P*** your day off in the points count. I have lost a pound this week girls adn that was really hard. Might not have a job yet though! So...... it looks as though I might have to go to Australia as a student!
No pressure then!
At least I didn't gain so I can cope with that, I will find out on Friday if I have a job or not. Keep the faith, eat your points, speak to you soon.
love Lace

Red face Re: Dieter's for OZ

It's not like that Sarah,
I wish it was. I already have the job but there was a misunderstanding over job roles and stuff nothing to do with me. I am the new one and have been made a scape goat so...... I am not going in tomorrow as I am genually (Can't spell) Ill but I am going in on Friday for the verdict. I am working with Hairdressers adn I can say that the job dosen't seem to have changd much. If you know what I mean. Sad but true!
Cheers honey

Lacey, hope that the job front works out for you. Sent you some karma for luck

did not get to ww this tuesday as I had the sickness bug, better now. On the positive side it might have helped me lose some weight.

stay with it teach, better luck next weigh in.

Have decided to measure myself all over. bust, hips, waist, knees, upper arms and thighs, as some time the inches lose does not always seem to correspond with the lbs lose. I thought if I take those to the docs aswell it will show the whole picture of my hopefully sucessful weight lose campaign.

Have also stuck beautiful ozzie beach picture on fridge and pantry cupboard in hope of reminding me not to open them

that first stone will soon be in the bag mandi, well done.

hope its a good week for everyone Halflinggirl

Thanks halflingirl maybe not this week but it WILL be next week.

I really feel for you lace, I really hope they let you keep your job, maybe they'll give you a warning (whether or not it was your fault) or something, i'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

The trouble is everything that tastes good is always high in points, that's why I'm the size I am and have to go to ww!!
