Thursday we go to a local Weight Watcher meeting.    Today’s meeting was about the new Points Plus program and making the most out of your points target and weekly allowance.  We had a lively discussion about using points.  In a nut shell, every food has a point value based on protein, fiber, fat and carbohydrates.  Everyone has a target number of points to spend each day (which varies based on age, gender and current weight) and 49 extra points to spend each week.   I’ll talk more about Weight Watchers in a future post.

For Weight Watcher purposes, my week starts on Thursday and ends on Wednesday.

For the week 1/13-1/19, my daily target was 44.  I was at or below 44 for 4 days and over 44 for the other 3 days.  I used 10/49 of my extra points.  This is a great week.  I lost 6.4 pounds this week.

To catch up from when the blog was still under construction:  For the week 1/6-1/12, my daily target was 45.  I was at or below 45 for three days and over 45 for the other 4 days.  I used 32/49 of my extra points.  This is a great week.  I lost 1.6 pounds this week.


Thursday is a tough food day since we follow a different “non JCC” schedule.  I’ll need to work on that.
