Question Did I Miss Something at my First Meeting??

Just started WW for the first time last week. Went in, paid, got weighed, was handed the little booklet that has points for food and where they write my weight in and was also given a Get Started book. Was told how to figure out my points for the day and told that there were 35 "extra flex points" to use as I see fit for the week. Sat and listened for the rest of the group meeting.

But...and this is where I feel like I stepped into a hole, no one told me anything more about these "extra 35 points". What are they for? Also now after reading several posts here, I am reading about Activity Points? There was no mention of these at all during my first meeting? Are these things explained a little more each week that I attend meetings? Was there supposed to be an in depth explanation of the Momentum program to new members?? Did I miss something?

Truthfully after reading so many posts, I feel as if maybe the group leader I had may have dropped the ball with myself and the other 3 that were there for the first time??

The 35 extra points are, as you said, to be used as you see fit during the week. You can use all of them, none of them, or somewhere in between. If you want to use all 35 on one day for a big party or something, go for it. If you want to divide it equally to have 5 extra points per day, that works too. They're kind of like your safety net.

Activity points aren't introduced to new members. You'll get the "start moving more" book on week 2 or 3 I think, it will discuss getting started with activity and how to calculate activity points. If you have any more questions about it at that point your leader will gladly assist you.

Thank you so much! Its wonderful to have a place where my questions can be answered by people that have been there!

I may be taking a co-worker with me to my 2nd meeting. She is very shy and was going to try and do it alone but I told her since we work together, we can support eachother.
