Needing help and also....

Saturday, November 17, 2012

OK Group...Have a ?. Today is my second day on maintenance due to being told by my leader yesterday that my BMI is too low (I am 5 foot 5 inches and weigh 126 lbs. even) and I have 33 points a day now. Today so far I have eaten all but 14 points plus. I don't want to pig out on the rest of them. Today's menu is below. What should I have and where do I need to fill in gaps?.

Breakfast: Cream of wheat, fat free milk (both green diamond foods)--5 points plus.
Lunch: 3 slices turkey lunch meat on low calorie wheat bread, carrots-5 points plus
Activity: Won't know points plus values of the last 2 days of activity for 7 more days as that is when assessment from active link ends.
Dinner: Turkey sub sandwich (turkey, cheese, lettuce, avocado spread, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts, cucumber and mustard on a low carbohydrate lettuce wrap)--5 points plus
Dessert so far: fat free frozen yogurt 1/2 cup--3 points plus and 2 marshmallows--1 points plus

Also on maintenance if I lose weight, do I add points or subtract points and if I gain weight, what do I do about my points plus tally?.

    So you're in maintenance, and you need to increase your BMI (gain weight) because your weight is too low?

    Use some online calculators, and figure out stuff on your own.

    You can calculate your own BMI to see if it truly is too low: BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measurement of body fat based on height and weight. (Or, use ALHIKES' calculator. There are many available online.)

    If it is, and you need to gain weight, calculating your BMR (basal metabolic rate) would be a good next step:
    alculator/. BMR measures the number of calories you'd burn if you stayed in bed all day. I don't know anything about WW points, but, you'll need to be above your BMR calories if you want to gain weight.

    Even if you need to eat more, you still need to make healthy food choices.

    You can do nuts for extra points.

    don't you use etools or your journal to mark off the boxes for HGL?

    I don't really do weight watchers so I can't advise you on points. But I did want to share a BMI calculator site
    .html Hope that is useful for you.
