Hi monife,
Try not to be too disappointed, a loss is a loss at the end of the day.
Your not always going to loose 2.5-4lbs every week.
1lb-2lb is kinda the recommended weight loss each week. (it's too early in the morning to recall the proper lingo)

I don't think the White bread wld be the sole reason, unless u were pointing it correctly.

Week 1 on the new WW Pro Points - my experience - 2lb loss

For anyone thinking of doing the new WW Pro Points plan I thought I would provide some info on what my first week was like. My daily allowance is 29 pro points (pps) and weekly is 49pps. I am at the upper end of the healthy weight range for my height so was not expecting to loose 2lb in week one!

My only exercise is as part of the commute to work which is walking 2 miles a day – nothing of note at the weekend. I am not the best at eating breakfast and try not to have to change what I eat too much when I diet so the food below isn’t exactly WW type stuff!

I am sure many people will think that as this is not the standard 3 meals a day plus snacks it is not healthly. Maybe that is true, but it is how I eat when not on a diet. When dieting I try to make my normal food healthier or use smaller portions so that I still eat much of what I like but change parts. Such as: have a Solero rather than a Magnum, diet Red Bull instead of normal, use sugar free beans, spray oil instrad of regular, no mid-week booze etc

WW Propoints Supplement in Sunday World

There was a fantastic supplement with the Sunday World yesterday , lots of recipes, stories and tips.

I will bring it into work tomorrow and attempt to scan it in but I'd imagine it will be huge. If anyone can get their hands on it its worth a look.

Bag of Aero Bubbles - 5ppts

Can anyone help me with the following:

Ryvita Original - according to the info on the label it comes out at 1 ppt a slice but in the old system it was 0.5 pt. Is the 1 Ppt a slice correct or is this only because there are no half points in the system and it is 1 ppt for 2 slices?

I know it is probably 1 ppt a slice because the system has changed but I just want to double check.

The Feb edition of the Good Food guide has a WW propoints recipe supplement too (It's available now), plus has loads of superhealthy recipes and give the protein, carbs, fat values so it is easy to point.

Hey folks, its been a few weeks since I posted here. Ye all seem to be doing really well which is encouraging. I could only go for two weeks and I lost 5 and a half pounds but then I came down with the flu over xmas which then turned into an horrendous chest infection. Ended up in hospital for three days and only starting to feel normal now.

However, I've only put on 2 pounds according to my weigh in from today which is really a big relief considering that I havn't been tracking and I still ate all around me! Just goes to show that its very doable even if you're not tracking.

I got that horrible flu over xmas aswell and was left bedbound with sinus infection and a bucket load of antibiotic. It was horrible! But recharged my batteries and i'm back on track with vengeance! Exercising, eating right, drinking water!
