    It should! Once you use your daily points, it will start using the weekly or activity points, whichever you set it up to do first. I think it defaults to pull the weekly first, but I changed mine.

    I don't think you can do it on the app. I think you have to go into your settings online.

    Hooray! Congrats on losing your vacation weight and 87.4!

    I was down 2 yesterday so a total of 10. I'm feeling pretty positive and really think I can do this! I would like to lose 60 more so it's going to take some time.

    I just noticed another goofeygirl!....

    I actually just joined weightwatchers a few days ago. I did them some years back and lost a few pounds, then went away and gained them all back and never went back on it.


    I was in a race last week and saw the photos...and myself...and I am realizing that the weight is giong to keep creeping on unless I gain control of it.

    So coming here should hopefully keep me motivated. I love sugary sweets and eating at night...two bad things!

    So I don't usually eat fast food, but yesterday my bf and I stopped at a McDonald's. I thought of trying one of those chicken McWraps. I calculated the points in a grilled chicken sweet chili wrap and it's only 5 pp?!?! I never would have guessed that. I know just because it is only 5 pp doesn't mean it is necessarily good for you, but I think it was the first time I ate fast food and didn't feel totally guilty about it.

    One of the new Premium McWraps? The WW Online calculator says it's 9 points. Sorry :(. Still NOT BAD for fast food! I think you did good!

    Ah, you're right! I mixed up the protein and fiber values! That's what I get for not using my glasses LOL. At least I had 7 points left over yesterday so I feel okay eating those extra 4 without knowing it. Jeez, I wonder how many other timers I've done that haha.

    I have been eating out like crazy for the last 2 weeks. It is so hard to stay on track :sad: I even ate a piece of garlic bread. My last weight in on Sunday I lost 0.8 lbs but I'm really afraid to see this week. Ate almost all my points min one meal today :furious: all you ladies are doing so good, wish I could follow !

    Hi! I just joined up three days ago and so far so good! I'd like to lose 85 but at 256, I'd honestly just like to be under 250 for now. Ill think about other numbers later, it's too overwhelming right now.

    I'm off to disneyland on July 16 (53 days) and would love for my just a tad too small capris to fit me.

    Cooking is my downfall. I hate to cook, and my husband is not home a lot. Any extremely quick meal ideas for myself and dd1 and dd4?

    OMG empathizing with the PPs...I had to eat at McD's today and I hated it. So not good food. Annoyed that the online version I access didn't actually correspond with the menu. I wanted grilled chicken and they only had the wrap (too many points for not enough food) or the McBistro sandwich. I had the McBistro with just lettuce tomato and mayo, I hope it was comparable. (Took 10 pts for the "Classic grilled chicken sandwich", which they didn't actually have, and left half the roll/mayo.) YES, eating out is HARD.

    Freesia, I pulled out my slow cooker again this week. Do you have one? Great way to make something healthy with no effort. 3 whole chicken breasts(I discard the skin and bone before serving, but it keeps the meat from getting dried out during cooking), a bunch of crushed tomatoes, some chili and onion and garlic powder, some of my favourite salsa...came in at suppertime, shredded up the chicken, put it with the sauce on tortillas like a messy soft taco, with chopped lettuce tomato green onion...dh used some cheese but really, it was fine with a little low-fat sour cream. I need to do a bunch more things like that myself.

    New WI time for me this week, didn't get to try out a meeting but unbelievably I was down a lb, even though I usually WI after breakfast, and this was at the end of the work day. :cool1: This week I dunno--no exercise, and I have a rotten cold. Good thing, no appetite. 2 1/2 mos til our trip, I'll be happy if I lose another 10 before I go. Total now about 21 since Feb.

    Debbie, WtG on losing everything from your trip and more! :woohoo:

    I think we all go through weeks like that. I just go back over my reasons for doing this and use that to motivate me back on track. I also remind myself that if I don't do this- next year I'll weigh even more!!

    I have a lot to lose too and I'm also focusing on "right now" We're going to Disney World in July and I'd like my shorts from last summer to fit! We can do this!

    21 pounds is great! Are you doing online only? I love the meeting I go to even though I don't like getting up early on Saturdays. Where are you going on your trip?

    I weighed in yesterday- down another pound :) That's 11 total. There were people in meeting the last 2 weeks who lost almost that much in their first week! So frustrating to hear but I just keep plugging along. We leave for our road trip to Disney in 48 days. Hope I have summer clothes that fit and I feel comfortable in by then! Have a good week everyone!

    Went to the ocean for three days to visit my parents, gained five pounds and, even though we came home Wednesday, I've only lost one of those five. I'm going to end up weighing more on Tuesday at the meeting than I did when we came back from Disney. Cookout tomorrow doesn't help! :sad: And then a new week begins . . . :)

    I've been avoiding this thread because may has just been a total write off for me. I'm determined to get back on track and repeat the results of April and hopefully even better so I figured it was time to post here again! I can do this!!!!

    I can't even tell you how often DH mixed those up early on. In doing so he messed up my points sometimes because I would believe him. Now you know how easy it is to do.


    At the activity open house this sat I'll get to re-meet our local weight loss celebrity Wendy. Lost over 300lbs, featured on People and on Oprah. She teaches Zumba at my Y and will be doing a short Zumba class at the open house. :). Pretty cool!

    I am on a road trip right now, and my eating has not been great. I want to enjoy food that I can't eat all the time. I'm still counting points, and I'm eating healthy snacks and 1-2 meals per day. I am mainly splurging on one meal. So far, I haven't gained! I'm sad for my trip to end, but I'm looking forward to getting back on track with eating and exercise when I get home!
