I think there is a strong possibility I may sprout leaves!!! I’ve drank pints of water (and not a drop of wine), had no extra off limits treats, just a bowl of freshly popped corn and an additional banana.
Well it’s took me a while to get my head round things! I’ve ordered cookbooks and guides from the weightwatchers site so hopefully I can soon get back to coooking diet dinners. But I’ve persevered!!!
Have opted for a while to use the ‘no count’ plan. It’s sort of slimming world but tweaked. Slimming bread IS allowed which is great; so bacon butties are back on the menu! All fruit, veg and lean meat are free so basically it’s a healthy meal plan where you count your treats.
Exploring the app, there is so much information on there. The ability to photograph a product barcode is fabulous as I can never get caught out when I’ve my phone on me. The App also has a connect section where the community gather and share stories… it’s so inpsirational, and with the encouraging emails and personal messages left on the app, and my fitbit linked in so earning points and getting additional points, I am really impressed… it is putting SW to shame!
I’ve lost 3lb in a week, and can’t weight to see what the next few weeks hold!
I pondered for a good 30 minutes then took the drastic step and went over to the dark side!!! I’m pretty scared, it’s new territory and I’m totally lost at present but I’ll make it through I’m sure!!
I have come to the decision, I’m just a gannet!! I pile the freebies onto my plate and I have not been honestly accounting for a dash of mayo, an extra chocolate out the box… so something drastic had to happen.
My weight is sneakily creeping up (not helped by love of weekend alcohol) and I’m no spring chicken… the older I have got the more difficult it is to shift the pounds…
So for £12.95, I’ve committed to a month of online WW… still getting my head round the smart points but I have a quota (30 a day) and also a flexible 28 for use as and when needed. I have an online diary and know for me, recording it visibly works.. so maybe… possibly it’ll work… I’ll keep you posted of course!!!
Happy Thursday! And as it is practically the weekend, I started the day with a couple of boiled eggs!!! I have to confess, there is a gadget involved in cooking my eggs and without it, well I just wouldn’t be able to cook them…
There it is, the perfect egg boiler, and it’s Cheap as chips, well eggs from Amazon – less than £2 I think but as it makes my eggs fabulous, worth every penny!!

Breakfast: 2 (perfectly cooked) boiled eggs, 3 ryvita (heB) and breaking the rules, had butter (2) on them which I know is synful but, hey, I’m worth it 😉
