I started weight watchers in May of last year. Started out at 258 and they gave me 49 points a day. That was very easy to do. Started riding the bike around August so I could earn some activity points. Still riding almost daily and down to 195 as of today. My daily points are now at 35 a day and I really need to pay attention to meet that goal. I tend not to use many of the weekly extra points and none of the activity points. I've been losing weight steadily since I started, gave up drinking soda, eating eggs, sausage and home fries for breakfast (still do every once in a great while), and living a more healthy lifestyle. Good luck with it, it does work if you stick to it! My goal weight is 185, so I've got 10 more to lose. They are coming off slower now, but I'll get there. You will too!
