Hi Candym - I can advise that your 2 hours of intense cardio will get you a maximum of 4 activity points per day (this is the maximum allowable regardless!) Don't have my books with me here @ work to advise on the other - sorry. Sad

no that helps! i think my points use to be 18 and that was when i pretty much had the same statistics i do now! but i didnt exercise then! so i can have a rough guideline till i can know for sure....

hmmm so about 22! probably try not go over 18 even when do exercise!

3.5 weeks till my birthday and want to lose about 9lbs - do we think this is possible.

any tips/advice - its a good 2 years since did weightwatchers!

Just stay focused on keeping your points in check - use this site as a guide until you get your books. Don't underestimate points - round up instead of down, keep exercising! Don't be susceptible to O.C.D. monitoring of the scale - the weight will come off. 9 lbs in 3.5 weeks is "doable" - but I have heard that the closer you get to goal weight, the slower it goes Doubt

Hang in there & good luck!

Thanks!
Well I am fattest ever been so not near my goal weight - so hoping the fat will come off easy at first!
YES I agree - I always overcompenstate and will do so with my points! Will be very strict until I can get my hands on a book!

Also...hmmm 'doable', I'll take that as yes I can!

Thanks alot, right off to the gym as way over points today but to be far didnt decide was going to do WW until this afternoon! Wink

Moleman--according to my little slidey thing, depending on your weight, you can earn up to 13 points a day exercising for two hours (I know this only because it's exactly what I've been doing).

When I was regularly attending meetings I wasn't exercising, so maybe I missed it, but you can only earn 4 points a day by exercising? I would be worried about undereating in that case (thereby inviting starvation mode), since I'm giving myself only an extra 9 points and I still only eat a thousand calories under my exertion.

According to WW guidelines you can only swap out 4 points of activity per day.

I've wondered about activity points. What would equal 1 point? Is it like 30 minutes for a point?

Thanks lgrant59. I rechecked & that's what we were advised at our meeting too. I did see a strange posting on the forum @ WW website - not sure if it's appropriate to post a direct link here, but if you Google "Activity Points Maximum Question" you'll find the link I'm referring to. (Click the first one.)

Huh, so if I do my two hour workout, that's three days of maximum points? It certainly doesn't encourage one to exercise!

That's cool though. I'm actually pretty happy to be monitoring my actual calorie intake here, so I'm keeping an eye on this...my goal is to burn about 1k calories per day more than I eat (that's about 2 lbs per week), but if it's a little more and I'm not hungry I don't go for the gusto. I'm concerned about undereating especially given that my exercise routine is relatively new to me, and also that I've been in starvation mode before and it doesn't exactly do wonders for my psyche.

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!
