If you can't then guess the best you can, add a point.

Unless you are talking of an un-franchised place, may be more difficult. You could use something like Zbarro __________________ Current Weight: 175 Goal Weight: 163 Challenge 20 something left Gluten-free January 2014

It might not be right but might give an idea. When something is larger than usual but is flat I actually calculate the area of what WW has points for and then the area of what I am eating and then I adjust the points accordingly. If the area is twice as large then I count twice the points, for example. __________________ Working on Less of A Better Me! My weight loss blog at http://lessofabetterme.com/

And use that. Or I use the highest points value I can find. I figure it doesn't happen enough to matte, I always have more than enough AP and WP to cover the few points difference __________________

I am just smart about it. That is what I like about Weight watchers, don't have to say no to anything. If I want it, I have it and plan for it. That is my real world and so far, it has worked very nicely __________________

But I don't, because if I eat it, I want more, and will think about it days after having had it. (It's my drug, I guess). So, by saying no, it just makes life a lot easier. I find pizza in the same category... By saying no, life's a lot easier, and just as varied. It wasn't a slam on your will power, I'm pretty sure! __________________ Hit goal on December 14th 2013 Time to lower the goal, I guess!

Gluten free not only saves on points (a small full pizza from Dominos costs about 31 points, while the gluten free version is 24) but it tastes great.

We have "Pizza Wednesday" at work. I still participate, but now instead of "Pizza Wednesday, I do "Pizza 1 Wednesday a Month" __________________ 250, 240, 229, 220, 216; 199; 186; 154
