Two pounds is the WW lifetime limit whereby they hit you with the ultimate punishment: you have to pay again to weigh in! Or at least it was that way back before I let my lifetime lapse for missing the one month weigh in by about a year.

Once a week weigh in might work well for losing weight, but on maintenance I weigh every day. It's no hardship to deal with a pound or two by limiting exchanges (or points now) for a few days. Jean Nidetch says that the War on Fat really begins when you lose your weight. She still owned WW when I lost my weight and she is my hero to this day.

Great advice, thank you.
I agree
"When your weight creeps up by 2 pounds, consider it a yellow traffic signal, meaning you should be more cautious about your food intake and physical activity".

What works for me
3-4 pounds it's a red traffic signal!
5 pounds it's a war on fat!!!


I'll celebrate 10 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2014!
