    I just started WW yesterday. I am allowed 18 points. I consumed 12 yesterday. Today I am 10.5. I think it helps to snack on things that are 0 points. I am not doing the meetings and am just doing this on my own. A coworker gave me the book. I weighed myself yesterday and am going to only weigh myself on Sundays. My goal is to lose 15 lbs this year and a total of 20 lbs by June 09. I feel good about this. I hope it works. I am going back to the gym tonight too. I have not been in 2 months and can't wait to get back. I think this forum will be helpful especially since I don't go tot the meetings. We can support eachoother

      YAY! I started last week again.

      I am not going to the meetings either, but I know that I eventually need to go. They really seem to motivate me.

        i'm heading to my first meeting tonight...i did WW once before and was pretty successful, but fell off the wagon when I started co-habitating with my FI and eating everything he ate (oops!). Anyway, looking forward to getting back on track and in shape...good luck ladies!

          Good for you! After tax season i'm going to join again, i really like it there. I think a bunch of my friends are going to go too. We can support each other.
          the one thing I loved that was zero pts was sugar free strawberry or cherry jello. Tasted the same as regular jello.
          Goodluck to you both!

            Same thing happened to me. He has finally agreed to change his eating habits so now we are in it together. So excited!

              i love ww - it sounds so cheesy, but it really is a lifestyle change rather than a diet. but make sure you eat all of your points!! if you don't, then you're depriving your body of what it actually needs.

                I have been on WW in the past, and I just wanted to comment on your low low low point eating. You need to get the 18 points in a day, its not a maximum points, its the amount of points you NEED to eat. If you eat too few points your body will go into starvation mode and start hording all calories from everything you eat and store then. That is what your body does when you consume too few calories. Talk to your leader about it, but you really should eat the 18 points in a day 10.5 is not good at all, its waaaaaay to low.

                  I've been on WW for the past 2 years. I lost 40 lbs on my own but joined WW to lose the last 25 which has been a big challege. For some reason it's been harder to lose the last few pounds.

                  Just to echo everyone else. Definately eat all your points. I'm on the Core plan and I love it! I find it more satisfying than flex plan and it forces me to focus on eatinghealthy foods rather than spending my points on unhealthy foods.

                  I would also add that I find meetings imperative to maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle. But that's me. Good Luck!

                      I started ww again today too, I have the book from other times that I've done it. I did it a few years ago and lost 30 pounds, I was also exercising my butt off back then, so until I have money to join the gym again it will probably be a slow battle.

                      18 points, holy crap, thats nothing! And you're not even eating all of your points?? Like Julie mentioned, you're supposed to eat that many points, and if you deprive yourself you're eventually going to just cave in and eat something really bad because you're starving. If you eat the whole 18 points you'll see that you can still eat a decent amount of food, you just have to watch what it is and you won't feel deprived. also, if you're starting to exercise too, you should definetly be eating all your points.

                      Good Luck!
