Day Eight: ProPoints has officially arrived!

Ah, the day I've been waiting for all week. The official launch of the Weight Watchers ProPoints Plan, and an update on eSource (so I can't cheat using the paper calculator ;D )

Day Eight
2 Crumpets: 5 PP
Low fat spread: 1 PP
Tea: 0 PP

Banana: 0 PP

Pork Loin steak: 5 PP
Broccoli: 0 PP
Cauliflower: 0 PP
WW Rich Chocolate Pot: 2 PP
DinnerWW Curry: 8 PP
Slice of bread: 2 PP
Milk, semi skimmed: 2 PP
WW Cookie bar: 3 PP
Fruit Salad: 0 PP

Total: 28 ProPoints

I had an email from a lady called Louise, who is using the Oats So Simple sachets for her breakfast. They're only 3 PP (not including milk) so I'll be trying them soon for a lower PP breakfast. I bet it's lovely loaded up with summer berries or sliced banana.

If you've got any other low PP products, feel free to share them over email, twitter or in the comments section below.

I'd love to know how you're all getting on with the plan. Excited? Confused?  

Let me know in the comments!

  1. Very, very confused. All my soups etc have suddenly doubled in points but my allocation has only gone up from 22 to 29 points (although people who were on 16 points are also on 29!). I can't work out what the good choices are at the moment.

  2. Hi Peridot, have you been to a meeting yet? They'll give you a mix and match list of foods for brekkie, lunch and dinner, which helps when you're starting out.

    Your points won't have doubled as you get fruit for zero points now and 49 extra points a week for when you need to dip in to some more. It's a bit of an adjustment, but it basically gives you a subtle nudge to choose healthier foods.

    I found the hardest bit was adjusting to the new allocation. I was so used to 3-4 for breakfast and 5-6 for lunch, that it's hard to get your head around some stuff being more! It will get easier though, promise :)

  3. No, I'm an online member - definitely the poor relations!
