OK- what is the magic math equation for successful weight loss on WW?

Can you use all your daily points, go over and use an equal amount of Activity and allowance points and still lose in a week?

What balance of points has worked best?

Who has the winning formula?

I'd love to know what's working out there

I am in the 23 daily points range and i probably rack up about 25 activity points a week.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

I'm not sure what works either and I am personally afraid to use my activity point and the extra 35 a week. I usually use about 1/3 of my 35 extra and I never use my activity points. So far ( and I hope I don't jinx myself by saying this) for the last month things have been going great using this method. I recently signed up with weight watchers to learn the new method because I was following the old method that I was successful on before but this time it wasn't working. Ever since I began the new program a month ago, this is how I have been following the plan and things have been great.

Hope this helps.Very Happy

If you are happy with your rate of weight loss (slow and steady) and you are satisfied with your food intake (i.e. you aren't starving all the time) then you are doing the right amount of points for you.

The flex points and the activity points are like a savings account - they are there if you need them. You never "have" to eat your extra points. But you should be able to eat all of them and not gain weight.

I keep the "savings account" for special occasions like parties or going out for dinner, etc. If I don't use that week's extra points, I just start over the next week.

It is all about what makes you happy. Eat more and lose slower or eat less and lose faster. And you can change it up whenever the need arises.

IT NEVER GETS EASIER - YOU JUST GET BETTER.

I agree with much of what has been said on this board. There are a few points that could be clarified and expounded upon, however. First, it does require some type of caloric deficit to lose weight. ...

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
