I totally flaked out this week on tracking and exercise. Back to it on Monday!

I feel like a wreck this morning. Four days of eating my Thanksgiving feast has left me feeling horrible! I guess that's what I get for going off program and not exercising. Isa's mushroom and green bean casserole was heavenly, but I think I've had my fill for a whole year.

I'm afraid to weigh in today. I was a little active over the weekend and did some walking. But no real workouts got done. Boo!

GaciaKai, just get back on track and do your best!

Happyfaced - good for you!

Weighed in this morning and I'm down 1.5, 6 pounds since joining yay! My jeans definitely fit better.

I really like the changes to the website!

My daily points stayed the same (29) but I can see why they lowered some people's. If I'm 5'11", I don't see why I would have the same points as someone who is much smaller than me.

I'm going back Monday and really excited. I have lost 60 pounds and gained 30 of them back. I had surgery and was in school for a while. I'm squeezing exercise in my schedule and drinking more water (gasp!)

I haven't been following my diet well at all lately and gained back 2-3ish lbs. So today I was determined to get back on track and logged in only to find my points have been further reduced on this new plan! Ugh I am down to 26. I couldn't even stick with 28 so I don't know how I'm going to survive. I know I can adjust them if I want to of course, but I really want to lose weight so I think I should at least try to stick with what it says. This is going to be so hard though! I really don't want to have to be super vigilant about every meal being 8ish points. :-/ That's hardly anything! If a cup of rice or pasta is 5 points, that's 3 pts for what, 1 piece of gardein and no sauce?!? I can't eat like a bird.

Does anyone know why they've adjusted the points? This was the 1st I heard of it when I logged in today since I haven't been paying attention.

They lowered the minimum number of points to 26 from 29. Some people were having trouble losing with 29/day.

I guess I'll try it for a while and see how it goes. I may just end up dealing with being 20lbs overweight but happy though!

Do you use any of your weekly or activity points? I use 2 or 3 each day so that it doesn't feel like I'm on some horrible diet that leaves me hungry all of the time.

I was using my weekly points, but more on desserts/alcohol. Yeah, I was being a really bad dieter lately haha. I guess if I really want to stick with this thing I will have to stop drinking wine on the weekends and actually use those points for regular food. No fun.

I'm not being very successful in being committed to Weight Watchers. Well, I am, but only for about 4 hours at a time! I do not want to start the New Year wishing I'd done something about my weight, so here I go again. I ask myself - why am I treating myself with such disrespect? My new mantra will be "You deserve better than this" as I'm about to chow down on three slices of toast with peanut butter. . . as a snack.

Congrats! Not on the points, but the weight.

Thanks! I can see this is going to get challenging pretty soon. I'm hoping that it will be a good challenge though!

No clue, I've been ignoring the emails cause when you log in it gives you an update there too. I haven't had the time to look into it yet though.

So I went searching, looks like they are just going to make some minor changes. I'm thinking about trying (again).

Yeah, the changes were pretty minor. The minimum number of points went down to 26 from 29, because some people couldn't lose on 29 (especially if you are on the shorter side of things).

That was the main change. Point values for a handful of things changed, but not very many. I think a large potato went up and a glass of wine went down or something like that.

29 worked for me but only if i didn't use my exercise or weekly points, but also, i had a hard time not going over most days.

I can see where folks might have trouble on 29. I am at 29 points, but I'm also 27 years old and 5'11". If you read on the WW boards, there are ladies that are over 50 years old who are five feet tall who couldn't lose on 29, which makes sense.

That being said, with the "new" plan if they lowered your daily point allowance and you were perfectly happy at 29, you can go ahead and change it back. You can also change your weekly points allowance.

I've slowed down a lot in my losses, so I took advantage of the ability to change around numbers and reset my weekly to 39 points. Hopefully that will help.

I've been doing terribly lately. went up 7 lbs in the past month or so (due to thanksgiving, vacation, and a vegan roommate that loves making Christmas cookies!). Now I'm going to try doing Simply Filling for most of the week and see if that gets me back on track.

Joyfulgirl - I am dying to know how well it works. The list of foods doesn't seem that restrictive, but I don't know if I trust it.
