My daily allowance points is 34. and in looking at it.. i go over my points or stay at my point range every day of the week. According to the schedule you put up there arent any low days for me. Am i just reading it wrong. Im sorry please explain it to me.

But what you're trying to do is to trick your metabolism by varying your point values every day. If you add it all up at the end of a week it still comes out the same. I'm going to use my own point values for this example since that's what I'm familiar with. WW says I can have 30 pts. a day, PLUS 29 more in a "weekly points allowance." 30 x 7 = 210, plus 29 = 239. Now, Wendie's way says I can have Day 1 - 31 points + Day 2 - 36 points + Day 3 - 32 points + Day 4 - 46 points Super High Day (SHD) + Day 5 - 31 points + Day 6 - 35 points + Day 7 - 33 points = 244. That isn't exactly the same (and this is the first time I realized this!) so what I will do if I continue with the "Wendie Plan" is to drop 1 point a day. That way the overall ratio should be maintained. Don't know if this is clear as mud or not. I'll post an update after my Sunday weigh-in and let everyone know how this week went. Edited to add: Had a 1.2 lb. loss this week! This is a little better than my average, so I'll continue with the Wendie plan another week and see what happens.

The Super high day is +15 points The other days are +2, +4 or +5 points. That is all there is too it. Wendie plan uses all but 8 of the Flex points. So for my I am at 28 points: POINTS TARGET - 28 (Weigh 225 - 249 lbs) Day 1 - 28 points (+0)Friday Day 2 - 33 points (+5)Saturday Day 3 - 29 points (+4)Sunday Day 4 - 43 points Super High Day (SHD) (+15) Monday Day 5 - 28 points (+0) Tuesday Day 6 - 32 points (+4) Wednesday Day 7 - 30 points (+2) Thursday I hope this helps you!

 12-01-2005, 09:43 PM #9 My beautiful girls!     Join Date: Nov 2005 Location: PA Posts: 6 This seems interesting. For it to work for me the SHD would have to be Friday (we have a long standing tradition of eating out on Fridays so that is usually my worst day) and I currently weigh in on Mondays. Is that far enough away or should I move my weigh in to, say, Wed.?

 02-11-2006, 11:05 AM #12 Junior Member     Join Date: Feb 2006 Posts: 27 thank you so much for this, I really think what you said is so me, and I do think that it is our own bodys that let the weight in or off, I have got to only eating 2 times a day and before I could never do that, but I have been doing it now for along time, I never could get any lower then 150. no matter how hard I worked at it, doing all the so called right things which can really get you down when you know that you are doing stuff right and it is not working, what you wrote to me makes thanks for your input, jackie o
 03-24-2006, 03:38 PM #13 Senior Member     Join Date: Jan 2006 Posts: 237 I think I may have asked this before, but I'd like to make sure I understand: 1) I'm doing the newer version of the WW system (well, the flexpoints anyway), so I should add two points to my lowest days, meaning that since my baseline is 24 points, my day 1 and day 5 should be 26, not 24? That is not reflected in the schedule below, since I'm not sure I understand. 2) Can I move the days around? I know that I eat more points on Friday and Saturday, so I'd really like to do (I switched days 2 and 3): Day 1 - 24 points (+0) Wednesday (WEIGH-IN) Day 3 - 28 points (+4) Thursday Day 2 - 29 points (+5) Friday Day 4 - 39 points Super High Day (SHD) (+15) Saturday Day 5 - 24 points (+0) Sunday Day 6 - 28 points (+4) Monday Day 7 - 26 points (+2) Tuesday I lost about 25 pounds on WW in the space of about 9 months, and then I have been fighting 5 points, and going up a little, down a little for over a year. I'd really like to get this going again. I have modified my excercise regimen, with some advice from someone who's studying excercise, and I'd like to try this starting Monday, so I appreciate any feedback you can give!

I tried the wendy plan this past week and I went down 2 lbs. I know to some it doesn't sound like much. I am like that as well. I want to loss 10 at a time, but it just is not healthy. I am trying it again this week and see what happens. My mother who is on WW with me did not do the wendy, and laughed at me because she said I was eating to much....more like nagged....she lost only .2. sooooo I think she is going to convert over. I will keep you updated. T
 04-06-2006, 06:37 AM #15 Senior Member     Join Date: Apr 2006 Location: RI Posts: 429 Height: 5'8" I'm on WW "winning points", now according to the booklet, I have a point range of 26-31. This doesn't match the point target on this post. Wendie plan says that for my current weight, my target point is 28? Shouldn't it be 26? HELP! I'm confused!
