No i had loads of cadbury caramel nibbles last night but I have an excuse cause its that time of the month, I also on my way home from blackpool last night had fishcake and chips, I have not been to a fish and chip shop for years! It was delish. Diet attempt number 50 is definately starting today, I want to lose a stone before June and tone up my stomache and arms. So I am having snack a jacks and hummus for lunch and I am going to make WW morrocan chicken with cous cous for tea and try not to eat anything else in between pale

Ooh Sarah are you actually doing weight watchers the full programme? I've been doing it for about two weeks now and lost 4/5 pounds already. Though I've just had a mug shot and I thought it would be really low points, 3.5!!!! Absolutely disgusted...for a cup of noodles?! what's that about eh?

Mmm morocan chicken and cous cous sounds lovely! Do you have a recipe for it?

Thanks for that Sajo. Will give that one a go. I know what you mean about going off track, seems every week something comes up that means you go out and eat/drink. So annoying. I'm tryna get rid of all the weight I put on when h2b and I moved in together. Managed to get off a stone of it so far...still another 1 and half to go (at least)...evidently I can't eat the same size portions as he can. Damn his hollow legs!

I really need to lose some weight for my holiday over Christmas (want a sexay bikini bod) and then when I come back keep the weight off until the wedding, lol!

I really got on with Weight Watchers but struggle now as I work in a new office with no microwave and I don't like sandwhiches, they bore me. Plus I'm picky as hell and don't eat salads. I used to live off soups and homemade stews with plenty of veg which was like 1pt a serving Very Happy

I also then got bored as I knew no one else doing it. Would anyone on here like to set up maybe a joint weigh in day so we can do this together? Lol

I hate the amount men can eat- its not fair!!
My dad weighs about 8 to 9 stone and eats twice as much as me.

I count weight watchers points rather than calories I would say what you had maybe had about 3 points in total 2 for the wrap and 1 or maybe even just 0.5 points for the light mayo x
