The only time I lose is when I use my extra points. If I am too strict with the points I gain, if I east sensibly and watch my portion size then I lose.

New low reached 149.2 lbs on 5/6/11. Made my weight watcher goal on Tuesday, May 3, 2011.
New walk record 9/9/11, 4 miles in 58 minutes.

I try not to. That way I have a cushion if I have miscalculated my portions or have forgotten to track something.

I have a hard time eating any of my extra points. It seems when I do endulge in a few, I gain 1/2 lb. + or -. If I stay strictly to my daily points I can lose .2 per day. It takes me 3 days to get off the 6 extra points I used. emoticon I try not to use them.

There might be weeks I don't and there are so weeks I use some. NOT too many that I may use lots....I like that option.

I don't use all the points every week except when there is something special that I need them for. I don't think I lose as well if I add too many of them!

I don't make it a practice to use my extra points, but they are there in case I need them.

Sometimes. It depends on the week. Like this week we went out to eat twice and I used my extra points. the week before I did not use any of the extra points. I try to replace the extra points by being more active and racking up the activity points. I also use the least amount of points that I can without leaving myself hungry on the other meals for the day of and the day after I am going out. So my body has a very high point day followed by a low point day. I am at level 26 so yesterday I spent 41 points but today will be 26 points and I will earn 12 points by adding a spin class to my activity level.

If so what do you spend them on?

2016 I will hit the gym 6/7 days a week. I will eat more protein, fruits and veggies. I will really cut back on the carbs.
