There comes a time when you have to say enough is enough!!

Mini goal 1- be @ pre-pregnancy weight of 231--achieved 1/31

mini goal 2- be @ 2nd pre-pregnancy weight of 221

mini goal 3- 199 (1st time in 4 years)

mini goal 4- 175

final goal- 150 by 12/25

What is your points target? How shy are you of reaching that number? If it is only a point or two, you should still be losing...but I think it is important to always eat your full point allowance!

You really should eat at least your minimum points everyday. Your body starts thinking that with less food that is going to "starve", so you stop losing. If you can just eat something like peanut butter or drink some milk, just something to get those point in, I bet your weight will start going down again. Good Luck!

I eat a lot of salad which doesn't use up much points but as long as I'm full...thats the main thing. In the evening I have a ww meal and bulk the plate out with salad and veg and afterwards have a dessert to use some of the points.

The rest I save for weekends when I like going out for drinks etc. I think its more important, for me anyway, to feel full and comfortable on healthy food than using all my points in one day. Sometimes at night I feel hungry which I sort by having green tea or a fruit snack.

I agree with redone750 and Adrienne. Try and eat your points everyday. Are you having enough dairy?

What is your target points? You say 26-31, but which is it 26 or 31 or are you adding in WPA or how do you get a range like that? You do need to eat all your points, weight loss and health depend on it. Studies show the WW members that eat all the points alloted daily, WPA, AP, while in weight loss phase do much better in maintance. So So what you can to eat them. It will help.

i got that range from an informational site. i think it was on the older plan where there was a range of point not just 1 set number, whe i took the WW quiz to see my 1 number target it was 31. and that is alot, but i never thought about milk to add extra points. i was thinking solid food, so i will try some milk. thanks everyone.

If you have trouble getting in your points try Low fat or full fat foods instead of fat free, if you are eating those. Peanutbutter is a good one too. I know 31 seems like a lot of points but if you plan your meals out in advance and snacks in between you can get them in. Don't forget the WPA (35). Some people don't use those and some do. I used to not use them and loss was way slow. Now I use every one even AP and loss is much faster.

First, I would calculate your points again-as far as I know, it isn't a range thing, but an exact number that changes as you change. here's how it works:
1. Gender: Female=2
2. Age: 24=4 (once you hit 27 this goes to 3)
3.First two digits of your weight: 25=25 (as your weight goes down so does this, eg. 240lbs will=24)
4. Height: I'll guess your between 5'1" and 5'10"=1 (if you're shorter=0, if your taller=2)
5.Activity Level: I don't know how you spend your day, but:
Sedentary=0
Light Activity=2
Moderate Activity=4
Intense Activity=6

So, add your total points of 32 to your activity level and that will be your points.
I got this info straight from the little book they give you at your first WW Meeting.
A hint for using up points? Try doing some WW recipes, they are around 5-8 points, and delicious. Healthy desserts too!

There is an older WW program called Winning Points and it did indeed have points ranges. People have been very successful on Winning Points. I myself used the program in the past and lost 46 lbs.

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!
