    can someone answer a quick question for me please? i want to get started but i dont really have time to read all about the plan until tonight.

    so ive been given 23 daily points - i guess thats what that means. but what are these 35 weekly points? are they extra points i have to use whenever i want throughout the week? thanks! i will sit down this weekend and read all about the program :)

      the 35 points are for you to use whenever you need to go over your points. For instance, I usually save mine for the weekends because that's when I tend to run out of my regular points, like if you go out to dinner or have a party to go to or whatever. You don't have to use them. You could also just use a couple a day if you're still hungry. It's pretty easy to follow once you get used to it. are you going to meetings, or doing it online?

      Leigh if you are doing it online, you will also get activity points for any exercise. I am really trying to lose 30 lbs before the wedding so I am trying not to use any extra points-you do not actually have to use the 35 flex points or your activity points, but they are basically your eating out points from what most of the women in my meetings have said.

        Christine, we are in the same boat! I really want to lose 30 before I look for a dress, so I was giving myself the deadline of March, but I don't know if I can wait that long to get a dress. I might go check out davids bridal soon and as long as I can find something there that I like I could wait a couple months to buy it, so hopefully I'll be able to get a smaller size. I try not to use the extra points too. I'm doing really good this week with my eating, but everyday I say I'm getting on my treadmill and I just do not want to when I get home. I am thinking I may go to the gym tonight, they have one of my favorite classes tonight. Otherwise, I am getting on the treadmill, exercise helps you lose so much easier.

        Jilly, the lady I ordered my dress through at David's bridal said when it came in, if it was too big I could exchange it for the next size down. That's is my goal, I ordered a 10 but am hoping to fit in an 8

          I usually use the 35 points for the weekend. I know that I will be eating out at some point and probably having a few drinks. I think they are to make life easier. Not many people eat exactly the same amount of food EVERY SINGLE day. Everyone is allowed a few margaritas, right?!

            someone at work told me that too! I think I might do that, because at least if I can look at a picture of MY dress everyday it will keep me from eating!! And I don't think I can wait that long to go and look, thanks for letting me know about that!

              I ordered my dress at David's Bridal as well. I lost 20 lbs and went to go get the smaller size and ended up exchanging it for a different dress too. That is the bonus with DB!
