So here is my input as a former WWPPluser. 29 points, w/o weeklies, was too much food for me. I've done better calorie counting and continue to lose.
BUT HERE IS THE POINT: WWPP2012 lowered points. A coworker gets 26 (not 29 anymore). She maintained, literally, for an entire year in 2011. Yes, she was up a little down a little, but she maintained on PP basically.
She rejoined at-work program on 1/3/12. On 26 daily points, using all of her weeklies, she has as of this week lost 1.4 or 1.6 pounds (can't remember which). Basically, she is averaging 33 points per day by using all her weeklies. Says she doesn't touch activity points, but is now exercising 4 Xs per week. My advice to her was...stop using the weeklies for just one week and see if it makes a difference. At 29 dailies, she was hardly using the weeklies. At 26 daily shes using them all -- which makes no sense to me.
Meanwhile, she's a bit urked that my weight loss has left her efforts in the dust, and I keep telling her to eat less.
I have no problem eating between 1200 - 1400 daily calories. Yes, I am occasionally over 1400 once in a great while under 1200. However, when I did the WWPPlus math vs. 1200 and 1400 calories, I always had leftover points that had I eaten would have stayed stuck in 2011 WWPPlus "maintenance" mode.
My advice to you is....test the waters. If you can lose eating the weeklies, good for you. If you see a significant difference in your progress, then you know where the problem is.
Is that your final answer?
