Hi, I'm Helen and I'd like to welcome you to my website.  I'm a WW Gold Member and am currently maintaining with an online-only membership.

I followed the WW No Count plan from August 2016 for two years - until it was no longer a part of WW.

I spent those two years creating and adapting recipes for No Count and set up this website so that I could share them with you.  After a year or so, I began to include the points values for the recipes so that those of you following WW Freestyle could also try them.  There's a vegan/vegetarian section with recipes very kindly supplied by Marie, and I've also shared recipes received from Mands (including some fab dessert ones) - both of whom are friends I've made via WW Connect and are fellow WW Gold Members.

In October 2018, I decided to try WW Freestyle while continuing to choose many foods from the NC list.  The change wasn't easy to begin with but I'm now thoroughly enjoying Freestyle which is why I haven't been posting NC recipes on here.

I will always be happy to answer any questions you may have - just leave a comment on one of the pages - and you can also follow me on Instagram @helen_wwgoldmember and Connect @hhay50

I hope you enjoy what the website has to offer and I wish you every success on your WW journey.  Good luck!

  1. Rejoining WW tomorrow. Dismayed to find No Count isn’t an option now. Lost 2st on it 2 years ago. Easy to follow and never felt deprived. Concerned Freestyle will feel constrained in comparison.

    1. Hi, don’t worry. I’ve managed to still eat many of the NC foods and fit it into Freestyle. 👍🏻💕 Did you go on Connect when you were last a member? It’s part of the WW app. Only I’ve written about my journey from NC to Freestyle which you could read and it may help. I’m @hhay50 on there. Rejoining WW in 2015 is the best thing I did: I really hope you have the same success. Good luck 👍🏻💝💕 Helen xxxxx

  2. Thanks for this lovely site. I enjoyed the odd NC days when I was on WW (before Flex) in the past and always lost on those days. I’ve decided to go back to it (keeping to Flex most days, but enjoying the NC freedom) as it makes me feel more relaxed. Your site is so helpful. I do have a question about the food list, though. I seem to recall (but perhaps it’s just wishful thinking) that air popped popcorn, with no oil, was also on the NC list. Is that your recollection or am I dreaming?

    1. Hi 🤗 I’m glad you’re finding the site helpful and thank you for your lovely comments. 💕 Yes, you’re right – if you make the popcorn yourself, it was free on NC 👍🏻💕 I’ve dipped it in choc shot for a point or two before now. 😋💕 Good luck and I hope you get to where you want to be. 💝💕 Helen xxxxxx

    1. Hi 🤗 you’re allowed the same number of weeklies that you would have following WW Freestyle. I had 28 👍🏻💕 Helen xxxx
