JUDITHJESSIE - Congrats on making your goal! I was SO happy when I got to add those 4 points - I just jumped right in, and continued to use most all my Weekly Points too! Your body will stop losing and adjust to the new range....Just keep active...if you do have a small gain it will come right off if you just stay OP. Look forward to hearing you made Lifetime!! Robin

Congrats JUDITHJESSIE! It IS hard to deal with the increased calories/points with maintenance, but it does make sense if you think about it. You had a calorie/point deficit to lose weight, now you just want to maintain, not lose, if you were to stay at lower points you'd still have a deficit and be losing. As your leader and the other poster said, the first few weeks on maintenance is an adjustment, you'll figure out the number of points you need to maintain your weight, don't be too worried about it.

Weight Watchers uses points in lieu of calorie counting.

Hope this helps!

Congrats! Maintanence is a constant state of flux. Remember that at 22 points, you were creating a calorie deficit for your body. Chances are at 26, you'll be at a net zero loss/gain, but it might take some adjusting. It was weird to stop and think of it that way: that my calorie intake was meant to create a loss and I needed to stop that and break even.

Good luck!

Hello everyone,

I just reached my Goal yesterday and am into my first day on Maintence. I am doing Flex and my points for the day was 22 and now I am up to 26 points. I asked my leader if I had to go up to 26 points and she said that in order to do a good Maintence for the next 6 weeks and find out what your body is happy with it is a good idea to do the plan as it is suggested. I must confess I was rather happy when I reached my goal that not only did I reach my goal but yesterday was 1 pound under it. I am afraid that with increasing the points I will gain weight. After working for this for the past 3 years I do not want to blow it now. How did anyone else handle it when they first got to maintenace.

Sincerely,
JJ
