  • SUPPORT GROUPSIncreasing your knowledge, having role models to follow, sharing your challenges, and celebrating your successes are a vital part of long- term wt management. This is why WW offers this option when you join.

  • Heres how to start:Once you know your current wt, you can pick out your range of POINTS.The more you weigh the _________ food you need to eat in order to lose wt in a safe and healthy way.Now, you simply choose foods to keep you within your daily POINTS range.

POINTS not used one day can be banked for another.However they must be used the week they are earned and use no more than 10 banked POINTS per day.
