    How do you spend yours?


    Those in the know will get how this works, I’m talking Weight Watcher ProPoints. Because of my current weight I’m allowed 40 propoints per day and have a weekly allowance of 49 propoints to use as I wish. This is how I would typically use my daily allowance;

    40g Just Right cereal (6pp) 6/40
    1/2 pint of semi skimmed milk to use in coffee and a splash on my cereal (4pp) 10/40

    Midmorning snack:
    Apple (Opp) 10/40
    Weightwatcher snack bar (2pp) 12/40

    Wholemeal Pitta (4pp) with 2 slices of wafer thin ham (2pp) and lettuce (Opp) 18/40
    Salt and Vinegar Snack a Jacks (2pp) 20/40
    Ryvita (1pp) and Extra Low Fat Laughing Cow Cheese  (Opp) 21/40
    Milkybar buttons Treat Size (2pp) 23/40

    Italian Chicken aka Devils chicken (5pp) 28/40
    40g Basmati Rice (4pp) 32/40
    80g Mixed Frozen Veg (2pp) 34/40
    Cabbage, Brocolli and Cauliflower (Opp) 34/40

    Pink and Whites (1pp) 35/40
    Nectarine (Opp) 35/40
    Curly wurly (3pp) 38/40
    Weight Watcher Ginger Crunch Biscuits (2pp) 40/40

    I’ve been bulking out my meals to stop me picking at unhealthy options in between meal times but I always seem to have at least 5 or 6 points left over. I’m not happy with how my weightloss seems to have slowed down recently having only lost 4lb in the last 3 weeks. Do you think I should use them all and treat myself to a curly wurly or a packet of biscuits (WW) or should I try and not use them? I’d be interested in hearing how you spend your points and if you can see any errors in what I’m eating.

    I’m also quite active doing Zumba for an hour three times per week and take Mikey out at least 4 times per week. Sundays we walk 4.5 mile in just under 90 minutes.

    Help! I really want to shake my weightloss so I can get off this plateau and get into the next stone bracket (only 3lb away!) {sig}
