Hi I want to share a link with a calculator for the Wendie Plan. Works for me.
You are suppose to do the Wendie Plan, if you are on a plateau.

Didn't hit the 10 pound weight loss mark as I had planned. I wasn't totally OP this past week so I actually had a 3lbs gain. Fortunately though, after getting my eating in check, the scale has moved back down so by my next weigh-in, I hope to drop what I've gained and hopefully a bit more.
How is everyone else doing?

I've been on PP+ since early January and restarted Wendie Plan a few weeks ago. I found the updated version of the plan on the Weight Watchers Community Boards. (see below)
I am down 8.5lbs but more importantly I've dropped a dress size. It took a while for me to get used to PP+ and then I had a 3 week rebellion against tracking and planning my meals. So my weight went up and down until I started Wendie Plan again and tracking. I'm hoping to finally hit the 10-pound mark next week so that means I need to be super strict with tracking.
Zero-Point Fruit and Low Fat Dairy (string cheese, cottage cheese) has prevented many-a-carb binge.
How is everyone else doing? I am now one of the Team Leaders for this group and I'm hoping to get it active again.
**************************************** ***************************************** It has been revised to reflect the Points Plus program.
Pick any day for your Day 1. Then eat your points as follows:
Day 1: target +5 to 7 points Day 2: Target + 1 point Day 3: Target +15 to 20 points Day 4: Target points only Day 5: Target +4 to 5 points Day 6: Target +2 points Day 7: Target points only.
Target means your Daily Points. If you follow this exactly, you'll use 27 -35 of your 49 weekly points. So if you go a little off any one given day, you'll still remain within all your points for the week.
As for AP's, there are a couple different ideas about how to use them but this is what we've been following. Earn them of course but then there are three options - 1) Wendie didn't use them because that's how she got the best consistent losses 2) only use a couple on your target days on really healthy stuff 3) if you're earning 35 or more a week, just add one or two to your target pts. before figuring out the formula... that way you make sure to be fueled for the week.
OR, try this variant of the Wendie Plan that we call the Maggie Plan:
Use all 49 WPA's in the first 3-4 days of your week, then stick to target for the last 3-4. It seems to work for many of the women on this board who try it. There are a few rules with it, though--you MUST follow the Good Health Guidelines, eat good healthy food. and have a glass of milk late afternoon/early evening.
