Hi all!

A few years ago I did WW online and lost 50lbs. It really does work. I signed up again and was trying to wait until 6 weeks pp (I'm 4 weeks now), but WW has a plan that adds more points if you are BF. I started yesterday. I'm really excited to get down to my skinny jeans again! Now all I have to do is wait a few more weeks to work out and I can start adding those activity points.

We should have a weekly WW thread and post food finds, recipes, etc. if enough people are using WW. I have a ton of tips I've learned.

I am!! I did it after my first daughter and it worked like a charm! I just signed up online again today to start it again and have spent the night reading all about the new pointsplus program. I love that all fruits are now zero points!! I think a WW thread would be great!! I actually was just on ebay and bought a new points calculator and the the starter kit with all the tracking sheets and pocket guide. Really excited to get rid of all this yuck! I have 40 pounds to go. Ugh... this is way worse than after DD1. I was back to normal so fast after her. So glad to haev a WW buddy! Good luck!

I thought about it, but I don't really have the money for it right now. I have the points finder for the old points system, but it wont work with the new points system. If I knew how many points I was allowed to begin with ( I'm not sure how to figure it out) then I could probably do it on my own, but without buying the gadget thingy, I'm not sure how to figure out my dialy points allowance.

Ambie- they waive the start up fee if you sign up for three months online now. Its around $45 I think. You can also google the old points calculator and how many points you supposed to get a day. I remember doing that awhile back and it was accurate, but it was the OLD points system (momentum).

Good luck ladies! I'm already down 3lbs. this week

I hardly ever enter what I eat each day, but I do check off the fruits, veggies, etc. when I can. I just keep the number of points I've eaten in my head each day. I did download WW mobile on my phone so that could save you some time. When nursing I try to log on WW mobile on my phone and look up points, etc. so you may be able to try that. The app was free.

I am going to start WW next pay period. Gonna start it out with a big old pot of homemade chicken tortilla soup. Before I got pregnant I did WW for a while and my soup was like 20 points for the whole dang pot (which has at least 12 big servings) if I remember right. Can't wait!

My problem last time around was actually eating all my allotted points. Being such a big girl I get a ton of points and it was tough to eat that much when its all healthy and not worth many points.

I have an android phone. I just searched weight watchers on the android app store and it was the official weight watchers app. There is a separate points calculator that is the official weight watchers one too. Both are free.

Chelle- I get 43 points right now. It's a ton! Especially now that fruits and veggies are free. It is tough to eat all those points. One trick I use is instead of eating low-fat stuff I'll eat the full fat version to add in more points. I do this with peanut butter, cheese, etc. You'll have to post that soup recipe when you have time
