I Just Learned the New Weight Watchers Points Plus Program!!

Ok, so here’s the deal, folks, I went to my Weight Watchers meeting this past Saturday and learned all about the new Points Plus Program. And of I bought a ton of materials to help me out – one of which includes the new Weight Watchers Dining Out Companion which is VITAL if you want to know the new Points Plus values for all your fave restaurants. The other must buy item was the new Points Calculator, which Weight Watchers now REQUIRES you to have if you want to figure out the new Points Plus values for everything you eat. Sad that it’s not the free, sliding Points Finder like before, which was so easy…..oh, and did I mention it was FREE?!? So, given that this digital Points calculator is a must, I ponied up the funds and bought it. I only paid $5.95 instead of the regular price of $11.95 — this was a special they were having through December, so folks, I highly recommend taking advantage of this item while it’s at such a good price, as there’s no way around it — you will NEED it if you want to follow the new Weight Watchers Points Plus plan. Which brings me to another topic of discussion — my recipes. In my previous post, I mentioned that I would be posting both the old Points value and the new Points Plus value for each new recipe. However, after much consideration and many emails from my readers, and please don’t hate me for this, but I’ve decided to post only the new Points Plus values for all new recipes. I realize that this may be a bummer for all of you who still wish to follow the Points plan, but in not too long, the old Points plan will be entirely irrelevant. With all of the old Points info online diminishing quickly, it’s just going to be too complicated and time consuming to include both Points values in my recipes. Additionally, the new Points Plus program really is great and makes a lot of sense. It also encourages healthier eating, which I really love. Since I’ve embraced the new program, I really hope that all of you will too. As for all my old recipes, for now, I will keep them as the old Points value, but may try to change that in the not too soon future. Together, we’ll get through the change and fully switch over to the new Points Plus plan! Stay tuned for my very first Points + recipe later today!!

      You can find free online weight watchers points plus calculators on many websites. But if you want to buy a physical one,you’ll have to get it at your nearest Weight Watchers location. Also, check ebay and Craigslist. :)

  16. I got the calculator and books and started the process today. After I figure my initial daily points total and start the process…..at what point or how often do I need to re-configure my personal stats to determine a new daily points total?…..also where can i find a chart or site that shows the amount of physical activities that will give you “x” amount of points back for completing that activity.

    Thank you so very much!

  23. I'm new here. Was going to sign up and go to meetings but I didn't realize they charge a weekly rate. My husband and I are retired and make very little. My husband decided to find another job and was told to loose weight first. We both will try weight watchers. The comments here are great. I know my points (29) but don't know my husbands. Can someone tell me? He age is 57, hight is 5.8 and weight is 210. Not much extra activity right now. Thanking you in advance. Teab

  24. Hi,
    My husband and I are both doing ww points plus. We neither have the money or the time to attend meetings or become members. I copied the books from a member I know and everything is going great! Loosing weight in a steady but slow (which is good) pace. We eat well, are not abnormally hungry (only in normal "it's time for lunch" type of hunger). We exercise as regularly as possible. He is in charge of the exercise program, I am in charge of the eating program, we share the job. Helps a lot! My husband is very close to his goal and I am trying to find out what to do in the maintenance "phase" so that I am ready to coach him when he gets there. As I did for the calculators and so on, I am hoping to find the information about maintenance on the internet. I hope someone can guide me. I do not have an iphone or the like, so Apps aren't an option.
    Thanks for any advice,

  25. can someone tell me if there is a bookl available that has all the points already calculated like the old syatem

  26. Lydia Paris says:

    Could someone please calculate my points for me!! Please!! I am a struggling student and can't afford to attend a meeting so I can just figure out my points. I will email you my information. lydiaparis1234@gmail.com

    Thank you so much!!

  27. I was just wondering for those ppl that are doing the program on their own are you using the old food point values and the new daily point values? Im trying to do the program on my own since I have a lot of old material but not sure how I shld work it?

  28. Would someone mind calculating my hubbys stuff for me? I joined online and cant get it to go back so I can do his stuff and I think it ridiculous to pay double. Mine are the 29 pts obviously but I figure he will likely get a few more! Right now I make him eat what I eat! LOL!
    His wt is 253, ht 5.11 and he is 51. He would LOVE to be down to something like 180ish. Thanks for any and all help! I just hate the thought of paying the $29 fee to register him plus the monthly fee when I have all the info on my website EXCEPT THAT INFO! Thnaks a bunch!
