As I mentioned in one of my other posts I decided to sign up for the free trial of Weight Watchers online. They have a new plan called the Discover plan, and to be honest I'm not impressed - it's not really any different from the old Points plan, apart from they are encouraging you to eat more low GI foods like pasta and rice and cut out the treats. Sorry, but the treats were what kept me going!

Although it was free for 2 weeks I've cancelled the trial as I don't want to be billed 50 (for 3 months online membership) for something I can already do - I've got all the books from my previous attempts at losing weight at class.

I've still got all my old Slimming World books so I think I'm going to give that a try again - I lost 2st on it before I got bored last time. I love pasta and rice and things like that, but on WW I didn't get enough points to have them!

Good luck to anyone else trying to lose weight - I hope you're more motivated than me!

I couldn't get on with WW as it was too much weighing and measuring of everything. Slimming World for me as you can eat big portions!

That's what I was thinking! They've got a new plan as well - Extra Easy. From what I can make out if you do an EE day food from both red and green days is free so you can mix them but you only have 1 A and 1 B Healthy Extra.

I thought it sounded really good, but I'm reluctant to try it in case I've misunderstood and end up putting on more weight!

My daughter in law had a gastric band fitted 14 months ago and has lost 11 stone! It may be a drastic measure, but she looks absolutely fabulous and at least she knows she has a pretty good chance of keeping the weight off.

I was reading about Ann Diamond and her gastric band the other day. She had it done in Belgium but it was not put on properly and so didn't work. It was later fixed in the UK and so she has lost loads of weight. A friend of mine also had the procedure done abroad and has lost weight slowly and steadily since at a few pounds a week, and as a result hasn't ended up with loads of loose skin.

I would consider it but I'm too chicken.

Ann Diamond gets on my nerves! To be blunt she seems to be making a career out of being overweight and continuously talking about it. She's admitted herself that she didn't do any research before she had the gastric band which I find amazing. If I was having something as drastic as that done I'd want to know what was happening to me.

I could do with losing a few pounds steadily each week - even one would do, but I am still munching my way through the Xmas choccies. Hubby keeps finding new boxes - I swear he keeps buying them in Tescos.

Diet firmly starts tomorrow with a vengeance - I've only got six weeks until skiing!

A tip for all those left over choccies.....

Take them into the office and share them with all your work colleagues - the plan is that the bigger everyone is around you the slimmer you will feel/look - no need for diets and does not cost a penny!!!!

Hi Sue

What a good idea that was, everyone was moaning as they chomped their way through yet another mince pie or choccie!!!

Still think everyone should invest in the Indian Knight diet book and have a look at pig2twig website!!

I had a gastric bypass three weeks ago, and so far I have lost 2st 7lbs (which includes the time I spent on the pre op diet). Don't feel at all hungry but I am still on liquids at the moment - I am so looking forward to next week when I can go onto pureed foods! Mushed up Weetabix has never looked so good!

I bet you're counting down the days!

I'm bored with Slimming World already - I'm sick of the sight of pasta and rice, and the white tiger roll I had with soup at lunchtime tasted amazing!

Not sure what I'm doing now, but Weight Watchers is looking more likely as I can have more variety.

Why can't I be naturally thin?!?!?

Wow Jan - that is fantastic news. I have been following your story on the other forum, and I think you are doing really well. It was a very brave decision to make, but you will really start to see the benefits soon. My daughter in law has lost 11 stone with hers, and she looks 10 years younger - in fact she looks like a completely different girl.

You are making me all feel guilty - as I haven't even started mine yet. Would be interested to know about the EE plan Vanessa - I lost 4 stone on Slimming World five years ago, and have put five back on. It cannot continue!

I wasn't going too badly with Weight Watchers until last night when Dave went out - I managed half a tube of Pringles (low fat!) and some Green and Blacks. Why don't I have any willpower?!?!
