I have the book in my hand right now...You have to add the numbers in order to get your points. Ready?
A Nursing Mom*?-----12pts
How Old Are You?
What do you weigh?
Enter the first two digits of your weight in pounds. For example, if you weigh 175, enter 17. If you weigh less than 100 pounds, enter the first digit of your weight in pounds. i.e. for 98, enter 9.
How tall are you?
Do you spend most of your day:
(e.g. as a receptionist, bus driver, cab driver)
Occasionally sitting, but mainly standing?---2pts
(e.g. sales person, housewife, cook, teacher)
Walking most of the time?-------4pts
(e.g. waiter, mailman)
Doing physically hard work most of the time?---6pts
(e.g. nurse, gardener, construction worker)
The total is your daily points target.
*Nursing moms and young people under 17 should talk with a WW leader before beginning the program.
**If your total is less than 18, your daily points target is 18; if your total is more than 44, your daily points target is 44.
***Retake the quiz as your weight goes down, as you get older or if you change the way you spend you day.
Remember that you have 35 allowance points each week as well. You can save them to eat out once a week, or however you choose. You don't even have to use them if you don't want to. Keep in mind that they start over each week.
You also earn more points when you exercise. You have to have a points calculator to help determine how many points you've earned.
I was able to lose 25 pounds within two months. The weight melted right off. If I can do it, I know you can too. It works. Trust me! GOOD LUCK!
BTW, if you want to know the points value of foods, you will have to go to the Weight Watchers website, or just buy the books that tell you what the points are. They are not expensive and you can use them w/o attending meetings.
