Do any of you ladies track cleaning, laundry, ect as activity points? I noticed it was in there, but kind of feel like it's cheating on activity points?
I have never tracked cleaning/laundry/etc. but then again I hate cleaning or doing laundry so maybe I should... it might motivate me to do more of it!
I do like how self tells you the calories, but it is a lot of tracking to count points and track on self, but I'm trying to still do both.
For night where I know I'll be out (like tonight) that is exactly what I'm doing - low point breakfast, light lunch and then I'm going to eat a delicious Zone meal (have you tried the Cederlane Zone Enchiladas, Lasagna or Enchilad pie for 6 points yet? Tastier and more filling than most WW and Lean Cuisine meals and about the same amount of points) right before I go. I'll let you guys know how it goes tomorrow!

Basically there are two programs:
1. FLEX POINTS: You are given a certain number of "points" you can eat in a day based on your weight and activity level (20 points and up are the average). The you're given an additional 35 points for use anytime during the week. You eat your own food but you count up how many points something has. Each point is approximately 60 calories. However if a food is high in fat it might be more and if it's high in fiber (which is indigestible technically) it might be less. You also earn points to eat by exercising and eating more that same day. I think if anyone is going to do this they should by the point calculator and carry it around with them. However you can always use this free one online as well Weight Watchers Points Calculator
2. CORE: This program is there are a certain list of foods that you can eat off of. In this program you do not have to measure but the foods you can eat are very restricted and don't include any processed foods, fats, bread, etc. However you are allowed to eat one bowl of high fiber cereal in the morning and for either lunch and dinner (not both) you can eat high fiber carbs (brown rice, wheat pasta, etc.). You don't have to measure but you are only supposed to eat until you are satisfied - not stuffed of course. You also get those same 35 points a week to eat whatever you'd like with.
So that's basically it. In my opinion signing up either online or through meeting where you can really get a hang of it is the best bet. For me I don't think I could really do it well on my own... but that's me. I sound like a WW commercial! I swear - I don't work for them!
BTW - some interesting facts for all of us WWers:
Supposedly people who attend meetings lose 3 times as much as people who do it on their own - I think it's because having to be weighed by another person is a lot more daunting then doing it yourself at home. However only the person who works there sees your weight and they never pass judgment as they are/were all members themselves.
90% of overweight people eat 90% of their calories after 3pm.... wow - THAT IS TOTALLY ME!
