    For all of you WW (or wannabe WW) gals out there, I have attached an excel spreadsheet that is both a journal and a points calculator.

    The journal has room for every meal and it's Points value for 10 weeks. On each sheet there is also the points calc. Just plug in cals, fat, and fiber and Voila!

    I like using this to keep track of things when I don't want to be paying for the online journal or meetings. It should be ready to print if you would rather do your journaling offline.

    Also, even if you don't pay for WW, you can register and use their message boards for free. They are a great resource and source of encouragement.

      Thanks Janet! Great spreadsheet! How do you figure out how many points you're suppose to eat in a day?

            Hey Kash, Sorry I missed your question the first time. It's been a long day!

            To officially know how many points to eat, you might want to join WW for a few months, but it's something like 18-23 points a day if you weigh between 125-150 and 22-27 points a day if you are 150-175 lbs. But you can bank unused points, and use them later. A few years ago they went and tweaked it and changed the points per day but then gave you a bank of 35 "flex" points per week. And then you can "earn" Activity Points.......And anyway, this all sounds very confusing and complicated when it doesn't have to be. Basically, when I am trying to drop the pounds, I try to average 20-25 per day. For every 10 minutes of working out, I get an extra point.

            But I would definitely join WW if you are serious about it so that you can understand the points system MUCH better than I am explaining it above!!

              What a fab thing!! Thanks Janet. I used to use WW online but just got tired of paying for it. The spreadsheet is all you would really need to follow the program once you know how it works.

              I agree with it being a good idea to sign up for a few months just to learn the system. Plus, the recipes are really great and you can use those months to collect enough recipes to get you through a few months of being good. As for points, I would shoot for 20 - 24 points a day when trying to lose weight.

                Thanks ladies! I'm definitely going to join - I think that it'll be a lot more motivating to be a part of the program officially in the beginning and also increased accountability helps! I'm going to start a WW thread (not that I know anything about it just yet)...
