View Full Version : Minimum Daily Points+ Allowance?

I'm sure this has been asked before so please forgive my newbieness! :dizzy:

I first tried WeightWatchers (online) almost 2 years ago (Jan 2011) and my Points+ allowance was set at 29 per day. I was at my high weight of 146 then but told that this was the minimum they would set my allowance at. I only stuck with the program a month or two then, I forget why.

When rejoined the program 2 weeks ago with a starting weight of 138 my Points+ allowance was set to 26

Have they changed the daily allowances in the past year and does anyone know what the lowest allowance now is??

I am worried that if I am already on it and they don't reduce mine as I lose weight I will eventually plateau seeing I only have about 15-20lbs to lose.

I have lost 4lbs so far in 2 weeks on the program :carrot::carrot::carrot: even though I am finding it really easy (too easy?!) because of all these free fruits & vegetables!

The lowest allowance is now 26.

If you find that you are stalling as you lose, weight some ideas are to eat fewer of the higher calorie fruits, don't eat all your weekly points, earn activity points and don't eat them.

Thank you for reply Koshka! I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it :)
