Anything you mentioned is good,also you could cut up some celery, carrot and cucumber and dip in some skinny dip along with some rice crackers or a protein bar.
My current favourite snack is diet jelly with a pot of diet yoghurt.

Well after gaining 1.4kgs, I have now lost 800g of that :) My weight is now 124.6kg... There is 7 weeks left of my challenge! I would really like to get down to 119.9kg by the end of July - but with only 3 weeks of this month left, I guess I will just have to see! By the end of this challenge I would like to lose another 7kgs - which will bring me to a total of 10kgs, which honestly I shouldn't be disappointed about! I expected to lose a lot more each week than I have been, but over the last 10 weeks I've been losing veerry slowly, and I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that I've been attempting to change my habits and I have slipped up heaps. I think my habits are getting better though! Last night I resisted PIZZA! I knew that everyone was going to be ordering it, so instead I made myself a nice meal, ate it before the pizza got here, and then didn't even want to eat the pizza :) I'm pretty proud of that!

Now that I've got my habits nearly on track, I expect to lose a bit more week by week. I feel better since I joined WW online, it's easier for me to track my points. Wish me luck for this coming week!

OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! About 3 weeks ago I applied to go to a different university, on a campus near-by... I've been waiting and waiting for a letter or something, and then the other day I got a call asking for me to send in my current university results and my high school results. My high school results are fantastic, but my current university results are pretty bad because I've had a lot of late drop outs... I didn't really expect to get in, but I wrote a letter explaining my results and that I would be committed to doing my very best at my new university... TODAY I GOT A LETTER IN THE MAIL SAYING THAT I'VE BEEN ACCEPTED!!! OMG! YAY!!!!!!!! *dances* I'm so freaking stoked!! I have to go on Thursday to enrol, I might be able to buy my books too if I've got the money (I love buying my uni books, and getting them home and reading them!).

Not only is this great for my uni career, this is also fantastic for my weight loss! Now 4 days a week I have to do compulsory exercise - 10 minutes walk to the bus stop, 10 minutes from the bus to uni, and then back again - plus the bus stops right outside of my gym a few extra stops down, so I don't really have an excuse not to go to the gym! Ahahaha... I'm so so so excited! I start uni again 19 days - I have no idea what to expect because I've never been an on campus student before! It's scary, but super exciting! I can't wait to enrol...

I went and enrolled at my new uni yesterday, bought all my uni books, got my student ID... very fun! But VERY exhausting. I felt like I'd done a 5 hour work out - climbing up and down stairs, going from building to building, standing in lines for hours - not to mention walking to the campus took 10 minutes to the bus, then a 20 minute trek up a small hill... lol! I was so exhausted that I went to bed early and only ate 17.5 points yesterday! I also got AF today :( I took another sneak peek at my weight this morning (to see how it was affected) - and I was 122.2kg :shock: :lol: I hope that sticks for another 2 days! Lol, or if some of the weight comes back, I hope it's only maximum 500g - I'd love to lose 1.9kg this week - get me to a total loss of 5kg and then I can go get my hair cut and coloured as my reward!! I've been waiting for 11 weeks lol!

Weighed in today - and lost 1kg :) DH and I went to the movies on Friday and I ate chocolate and popcorn and on Saturday I just felt like giving up - I'm sooo glad that I didn't now! Oh my gosh, I've lost 6.3kg - only have 1.5kgs until I get out of these nasty 120s :D

That's brilliant work, Yellowroses. Good on you! I'm glad you didn't give up. 1kg is a great loss.

Thanks so much EWQ :) I'm proud of the fact that I've stuck to it this time and my hard work is really paying off - instead of giving up after a few weeks when I don't see the results that I expected.

This week has not been fun at all. Some pretty crappy stuff happened, and I've decided to take a couple of days off from tracking my points. Next weekend I'm going away to a family party, but will try to be good, but I'll weigh myself on Friday before the eating commences. I'm not weighing in tomorrow either because I'm not feeling up to it, but I weighed in a few days ago, and I had lost 1.2kg - bringing me down to 120.2kg... OMG! I'm so close to under 120, it's killing me. But I really do need time off from everything at the moment. I'll keep you all updated, and hopefully I'll come back in a couple of days feeling much better!

Thanks guys :) I've decided I will do an official weigh in today, but I'll just keep it to myself - my 'time off' has consisted of a pizza binge... I will weigh in on Friday morning to see if I got under 120kg before the end of July, but my next official weigh in that I'll count on my Ticker will be on the 9th of August. Today I'm back on the wagon to start my new week - I feel really crap after the last two days of eating whatever. I've got a BBQ next weekend for the family thing, I'm hoping that I'll be able to just eat a little bit of meat and bread and stick to salads and diet soft drinks. I've decided that I'm going to take little weight watchers snacks up to the Gold Coast with me - like snack bars, soups, some cereal and probably some of my lactose free milk. That should keep me out of any major trouble with 'not having a choice'.
