Can someone explain points plus values on maintenance to me...

Sunday, November 18, 2012

I have been eating 33 points plus a day on maintenance with weight watchers for 2 and a 1/2 days now and do not understand maintenance and the points plus increase or decrease at all.

Take this morning, I was just curious so I hopped on the scale at home and was down 2.2 lbs.

Yesterday I ate almost all of my maintenance points only leaving 3 points plus behind.

And today so far I have the following for breakfast...

Eggo waffle low fat frozen...1 waffle, no syrup

fat free milk-1 cup

Am I supposed to increase (meaning eat 36 points plus a day) or decrease (eat 30 points plus a day) when I lose on maintenance?.

    I am NOT there yet. I think you are doing it right though. Keep it up. Also, looks like you are eating different and that helps, too. Change is a good thing!!

    Going to give you a piece of advice Lance.

First of weigh yourself way too often. Use the wws scale to determine your weight once per week. Your weight can fluctuate day to day ...hour to hour.

Your center should have given you a target/number per day to work on....I know that etools does and you have that.

After one week...if you are losing still...then you need to increase your points. If you are gaining you need to decrease your points till you find that balance.

In your case..they said you were way under weight.....

that being the need to eat more points per day.

This is new to you and a new way of thinking and you are panicking. Relax and try not to stress on it so much.
