Re: Weight watchers and stuck

What are they using to determine 0.05 pounds??? Sounds like something they'd weigh DIAMONDS on. Or did you mean 0.5 pounds (half pound)?

Anyhoo, after a short plateau like 3 weeks I think ONE DAY (but only one) of all-you-want-to-eat up to DOUBLE your normal calories (or points) sometimes works wonders to get back to being a "loser." Give it a try next time you stall. Remember though, you cannot use this trick too often...it's for TRUE emergencies.

Re: Weight watchers and stuck

What are you eating in a typical day foods and points?? When I was on WW there was a girl who had this same problem. She finally added more protein and deleted some carbs and it started the weight loss again. MAybe you just need to make some adjustments?

Re: Weight watchers and stuck

i just started my 10th week on WW and am down 18.4lbs. Have you tried using all your flex or no flex? Sometimes that makes a difference.I find that I lose more when I use about half my flex and eat higher point meals. Also, try the Wendie plan-you can do a search for it-a lot of people on the WW board swear by it when they get stuck.

Re: Weight watchers and stuck

I have to say that I know nothing about weight watchers, but from what you've said, I think you need to work in some more protein...

Re: Weight watchers and stuck

Basically Weight Watcher points are 50 calories each...the two methods are completely equivalent.

Re: Weight watchers and stuck

I do not understand what you are saying each point is 50 calorie so if Iam eating 20 point than that 1000 calories per day correct?

Re: Weight watchers and stuck

I would try a salad w/ protein for lunch and axe the frozen meals. They contain a great deal of sodium and fat.

Try having grilled chicken or fish or a hard boiled egg and steamed veg's available in the evening.

I agree that it looks like not enough protein.

Re: Weight watchers and stuck

I think I will try your idea lost another 1/2 pound. I just wish it will come off much faster say 2 pounds a week will make me happy.
