Default ?? flex points??

Im trying weight watchers after losing 90lbs counting calories alone. I hit a plateau and got frustrated and yo-yoed back and forth and then gained a little bit back.I tried weight watchers right before the holidays and really like it.
My ? is ..should you use your flex points.I have many friends in weight watchers and some use them and some dont. My daughters bday is tommorow and I know that I will be eating a slice of her icecream cake. Its 9pt for 1/8 of the cake, so should I plan it in my reg menu or count it as flex? I think I can eat really healthy and get it into my reg pts. I will have to load up on veggies and lean meats to do this..what would you do?

You'll have a faster weight loss result NOT using the points, but frankly not using them makes the average person miserable. So have the cake because you CAN! And if at all possible cut back on indulging in ALL your flex points this week and that way you can have the icing too! Enjoy.

Use your points! I have actually found that i have slower weight loss if I do not use at least some of my flex points. They are a part of the program and are there to enjoy guilt free.

You don't want to deprive yourself. Use them if you want to!

I have a slower weight loss if I dont use my flex points. I try and use at least ten of them. Hard as **** with all the fiber I am getting also.

so i'd gather that if you used all 35 every week you'd have a very slow loss. but if you use them here and there as needed it helps your mood (being able to have that extra every now and then) and it changes up your routine from just going to your max points. interesting stuff !

Default Flex points

Hello, I lost 65 lbs. on WW and always used every single one of my 35 points every single week and I averaged about 1.5-2 lbs. each week. So I say use 'em
