Now I'm confused about amount of points I should have
I am following a 2007 WW plan, so maybe that is where the discrepancy lies. I am reading posts here and I am eating more points than people who weigh more than I do. Here is what my WW instructions say I can have:
Age (27-37): 3
Height (5'1"-5'10"): 1
Activity level (SAHM): 2
Total Points Allowed: 24
Does that seem right? I lost weight successfully using this formula 3 years ago (before turning 30, lol.) I have started and quit so many times since then because I lose weight the first two weeks then lose nothing to very little (around half a pound) in the next couple of weeks. It's discouraging to work so hard for little results so I end up quitting.
I started back up again 4 weeks ago...lost 4 lbs in week 1, lost 2 lbs in week 2, then gained 1/2 pound in week 3. I was discouraged, but went back through my old journals and noticed I had a big drop in weight in weeks 1 and 2, then nothing in 3 and 4, then went on to a steady average of losing 2 lbs per week after that.
So obviously, I need to give this more than 3 weeks to get good results, but do you think my points are high??
