What am I doing wrong? I thought someone might find this useful. Weight Loss Edition introduces us to a new morbidly obese person every week that is selected to endure a day challenge to lose half their weight. Was worried about not having access to the restaraunts, calculater, etc. Now if you work out then do you get extra points for working off so many calories? Not while pregnant, of course. Every birthday counts against you too.

Flight To Colombia Frank C. I have a new man in. Treadmill Tricks Not only do I love to run, but I love the treadmill. This is one of the few meals where my son actually asks for more vegetables! This easy to make recipe is sure to be a hit with the family! Still Fighting The War! Set small, specific goals. Positive Reinforcements Hello world, long time know see. Did you miss me? Well I sure have missed. Weight Loss Video Diary — Week 8: Weight Loss Video Diary — Week 7: Weight Loss Video Diary — Week 6: Team Fat Man is Unleashed: When the plan changed to Points Plus, the daily targets went up, so did many points values especially higher carb foods.
The new plan gently pushes you in the direction of making more healthy and satisfying choices. Mine went from 21 to There is an actual calculator that you could buy through Weight Watchers, or possibly eBay or Amazon. Just gotta search around: You can find a location close to you on weightwatchers. As a life time member of weight watchers there are some things that you need to know before embarking on this journey without the help of the weight watcher staff.
The daily point value that you are supposed to eat is not acurate. The minimum daily point value for everyone regardless of the amount of weight to loose is No one should be eating less than 26 points per day. You need to make sure you have 2 tsp of healthy oils as well and eat from the 4 food groups every day plus lots of water.
Weight Watchers is an awesome program that helps you loose weight the healthy, safe way. I recommend it for everyone and you can eat everything you want just calculate the point values. Its not a diet but a life style. Good luck on your journey! Thank you so much for posting these tools! I lost 30lbs on weight watchers a couple of years ago and am excited to get started again!
Do you happen to know of a recipe builder like tool so that you can put in a recipe and find the point value? Calorie count will let you build a recipe and give you the nutritional info, which you can then enter into the points calculator. Some that do have points are potatoes, corn, peas…. Comment if you have other questions. Without that , how would you know how much to eat a day? Happy to find your site. A few years back I lost with the old Points system by just following through online resources and some friends.
I wanted to find out about Points Plus and you gave me the info. I am currently doing WW online and have lost 40 lbs in 6 months. Was worried about not having access to the restaraunts, calculater, etc. YOU are a lifesaver.
You do get 49 extra points each week to use as you see fit. And exercise, exercise, exercise! Thanks so very much for posting this. I usually follow the meal plan fairly closely, but I was concerned I would miss the tools when I went out to eat and when I occasionally choose a different meal.
These tools will fill in that gap nicely. I will also say that, based on what I have seen with online tools over the past year, these tools suggested in this article are accurate for the most part. Any ideas for how I can follow this successfully? Just do your best to make fresh choices. Stock up on those steam-in-bag single serve frozen veggies if you have a freezer.
Keep fruit in your room. A big thing is portion sizing, as well. Protein the size of a deck of cards, tons of veggies, etc. Whole wheat, whole grain, low fat dressing. Do you have a way to figure out excersize points? Thanks for this awesome post! Fruits and veggies are FREE! But I eat one every day.
It definitely helps with the afternoon munchies…. Fruits are not FREE, they are 0 points plus values. Fruit is 0 points. You should get the recommended fruits and vegetables in a day which is servings a day I believe.
Be smart…measure out one portion and then evaluate whether you are still hungry. Is there a pre-existing list of basic foods anywhere? I would also recommend this points plus calculator at http: I also lost a lot of weight with WW a few years ago, then after a long year with two foot surgeries, etc. WW is a great program, when you follow it: There is another free program that is just as good, with added options for your whole health, etc.
How many points do you add if you are nursing mom on the Points Plus? OK… was starting to type and see you found it. I have been looking for something like this I am a new nursing mom: She said it was too expensive to join. In 15 weeks I have lost 30 pounds. I lost about 6 pounds the first week and then after that I averaged pounds.
When i exercised I didnt add in any points. I just stuck to my point allowance and the weight came off. Is the points calculator on this site accurate or not? Thank you so much!!! Now I can hopefully start!!! So you lost Thanks to whoever it was who told me about Shrinking On A Budget. Thanks to Freckleberry Finds for this post too! If I am allowed 26 daily points on points plus, how do I fill out the log? You are such a star for this!
All I wonder is if you have a preference for a friendly weight loss forum? Like a nice community of people helping each other out? Your blog is amazing! Thank you so much. I would suggest checking out http: It gives free points values for foods weight watchers plus as well as restaurant dishes and their point values. Does anyone know it there is a points plus food companion floating around anywhere? Thanks for the links! I wanted to add that if you go to foodfacts. At the bottom of each product page they tell you how many WW point are in that product.
Not sure of to follow please help….. What a great article. You can also add single items to the grocery list. I was looking into WW myself yesterday and thought the same thing. I was gonna do more research today but you just saved my time. This is a good site to let people know they can do on their own without paying the amount they charge. Keep up the support! Here is my problem. If PointsPlus is now saying that fruit is 0 points, then why when you put the info into the calculator, do they not come up at 0 but more like 2?
Works out better for me. Ty ty ty ty!!! I am a lifetime member to Ww. I made a huge move away from my family and gained 50 s. So its back on Ww. This has been ablessing. Ty so much for all the great info.
I lost and maintained for 7 yrs. I just started and I have a long way to go but I will get it done before my vacation in Oct. Thanks heaps for this. The computer tells me I am severely obese, and i weigh lbs 85kg and am cm tall.
I will give your ideas a go and see how I go. How bout where is a list of foods grouped by pyramid categories and measured amounts? I am so glad I found this! I exercise 6 days out of the week so I hope weight watchers will help!
Hi any suggestions on how to figure points for the meals you cook at home with your own recipes? Is there a calculator that will allow you to enter the ingredients? Use this recipe calculator: I am trying to loose about 50lbs by May if possible. I have only lost 4lbs in 2 weeks. Does anyone have any tips for me on what I should eat on a daily basis?? I was thinking about just doing the frozen Weight Watchers dinners is that okay? Can I ask your opinion? I am a nursing mom; however, my nursling is 15 months old and only nurses once in the morning and once before bed with the occasional daytime feeding.
Im not producing enough milk to feel engorged in the slightest, nor enough to make them even a tiny bit firm, even if he skips a session. Would you even count that as nursing at all? I would count that as part time. I bet someone at La Leche League or another nursing program could give you calorie recommendations for that amount of nursing.
Thak you so much!! D you have saved my life really. Not knowing the difference i went with the old points program. I was allowed 39 points. I found your site, wish I would have found it at the beginning, and it is a great help.
I put my numbers in the points plus calculator and I get 56 points. I had to quit when I got pregnant and circumstances do not allow me to rejoin when the baby is born. I have points sliders and such but for the older plan. Before fruits were free and points values changed. This was a fantastic find.
Thank you so much for putting this together. It told me my points should be I played around with the numbers and by adding weight it gave me higher points. I would think the more you had to lose the lower your points would be, not the opposite. Does 26 points for my info sound right? So I just used the formula to calculate my points and I come up with 20 points.
I need all the help I can get…. Thank you for this: However I just wanted to make sure, is the point allowance calculator up to date? Because on other calculators online I am only getting 26 points as opposed to 33?
I did weight watchers before and it was great just need to get motivated to do so again Ifind as you get older harder to loose thanks for posting this you are an angel. I have a question. I am allowed 29 points a day, plus I work out intensely for an hour every day.
Is it vital that I use all of my points? Whats your thoughts on this? I have been doing points plus for three weeks now and lost 4 pounds. I really need to have something on my phone because I will not track if I have to sit down at a computer every day. You are an inspiration!! I have been roaming your blog all morning and have printed out your food log!
So excited to get back on track! A year ago I was right where I wanted to be, I also have Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and it helped me get where I wanted to be but somewhere between summer and holidays I let everything slide and gain everything back! I was so angry at myself and also determined to get back in shape! So thank you for your bravery in letting us see your journey and to follow along in your footsteps!! Is there a point system for prepared food i. I am so very happy that you posted this!
My aunt is in the weight watchers program, and she looks fabulous after doing it for a year. Thank you so very much for posting this. No need to keep paying out for a service, and with WW you can maintain your healthy weight because you know how to make the right choices.
I was on WW back in I lost 40 pounds on it. I maintained that weight until when we became unemployed. Stress certainly does contribute to weight gain!! I was able to get back to my goal weight in by using the myfitnesspal app. But over the last 3 years I have gain about another 20 pounds My goal weight through ww was I actually got down to So when I went up to I used the fitnesspal to get back down to my goal.
I actually gained about 3 pounds on it. Now, to be fair, I have not be able to exercise for the last 3 years. We changed jobs, had to sell our house and move. All contributed to the stress of weight gain. I dispise exercising but I would force myself on our treadmil. Since we moved in May of I have put on another 15 pounds bringing my weight up to or so. I refuse to get on the scale.
The program that I used in was fantastic. I would love to find that plan again. The points plus just did not work for me. The surger was a failure and I am looking at another surgery in a week to repair a severed ligament and hopefully remove the stump neuroma.
I am looking into doing water areobics but cant do that until I get the knee high cast off in weeks. My thyroid is fine, no other health problems except some major acid reflux that I had back before I originally started WW.
It went away after I lost weight. Help me find that please. I swear I saw it on your page, but now can not find it. Sorry about the novel here. I really like your site but I think you are mistaken about the old Weight Watchers plan and how to calculate the daily points. I believe there was a at the very least, a minimum amount for everyone which was 21 point s a day. Actually you are entitled to 21 points- anything less is very difficult to maintain.
I would check with some past members about the old plan to verify your data. Thanks for all the info! Once you do your homework and create a list of frequently eaten items, this is way too easy. I love your sight and use the activity points link and pt plus calculator link a ton. Today the pt plus calculator does not have the calculator on it!! Did WW get rid of it — argh! Is there another link to it? I have a quick question about how to calculate activity points in a different kind of situation.
We were there for 8 hours, and my pedometer says I walked 5. But if it IS there, let me know! Here is a web site that gives you the points you are supposed to have per day by your age, weight and height, http: I did the old plan before and it worked but im curious about others results with the new program. Thanks Ashley — you are so beautiful and wonderful!
I just found your awesomely-helpful site and am sure I can lose this pesky 20 pounds without skipping any mortgage payments: This keeps me Dave Ramsey-intense! How do I go about getting a points plus calculator? Always wanted to try the weight watchers program just never could afford the program and meeting prices ty for making it where everyone has the chace to get healthy!!!!!!
Make sure you bookmark this blog post to refer back! I am so grateful for you right now! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I was going to head out to WW today but, I found you instead. I need that weekly check-in to stay conscious and on track. I also the support of other people. I have lost weight in the past doing WW, but now can not attend meetings and would love to follow the program.
I used both the online calculator and the old WW Plan to figure my points and got 43 with the online calculator and 34 with the old WW plan. Which should I use? I am so happy that I found your website. I am finally facing up to how bad I look and feel about myself because of it. I started at the top and have read down all the comments and everything, and have written down quite a few recommended websites.
I find people asking the same questions over and over again, and you are very patient about that. Your website is awesome, and has really inspired me to get going with this.
