I have been trying to stay under 23 ww points but I find its really hard to do and then my calories are only at about 1100, which is way to low i think. Does anyone know how to stay under 23 points but still be eating between 1300 and 1400 calories? or does anyone else have this problem?

I eat a diet bar with coffee in AM. Slim fast for lunch plus 4 triscuts & a WW microwave dinner at nite. Add a banana for afternoon snack & a WW dessert in evening. That should equal around 23 pts, I have'nt looked at calories but it should be approaching your goal. I'm going to check my record & see the calorie count for today.

I am letting myself eat more points if necessary if the cals are lo... i am learning that it backfires if my cals are too low. You are suppose to get the extra bonus points, activity points, etc or 35 extra a week or whatever anyways. I am suppose to be able, according the the scientific numbers.. be able to eat 1545 cals a week and still loose 2lbs. I usually try to, if counting, stay 1100-1200 and I think that i just need more cals. I am trying for a few weeks to see if i can do more cals. I have been trying for YEARS to move away from the 5lb up and down I have been doing. Something has to change and I think if i look at tyring to stay lo cals, then it backfires and i end up totally go off track for a few days. As long as I track and keep my cals up, i think i can make a break through. I am like a professional dieter or a really good maintainer. But if i ever get to my goal weight, i don't want to maintain it but doing the same old thing... lower cals, then a few days of going all out to have to get back to lower calories. It is a HUGE cycle!

I also eat 23 pts per day but I average around 1500 calories... Are you eating foods high in fat?

My average day looks like:

Breakfast: Fiber 1 and milk, coffee. Lunch: Spinach salad with walnuts and strawberries, grapes, banana, beans, and 2 cookies. Dinner: Usually I spend around 10pts for dinner... 1.5 cups of penne with a lot of veggies and some cheese. Snacks: popcorn, tea

I'd suggest trying to pick more nutrient dense low calorie foods rather than foods high in saturated fat.
