    Morning, ladies and gentlemen!

    Can someone please help me out with activity points?? I know that you earn them from being active, obviously, but how do you use them??

    Hi Nina,

    Our leader advises to exercise for health and not to use the activity points earned for food, and as i too am at weight watchers and exercise on treadmill most evenings i always felt why slog for an hour just to have another glass of wine etc....the exercise is hard enough so i would advise the same as our leader. I have been at WW over the last 9 weeks and have never used my activity points for food and its made a big diff to my weight loss. Weigh in this ev and to date im down 19lb. Bought my 1st size 8 jeans on sat, always been a 12.....so its working.

    So basically, don't use them at all? And thanks for taking the time to reply! It's nice to have all the facts! That's great progress, well done! :)

    If you're only doing a bit of exercise then don't use them but you need to replace some nutrients if you're exercising a lot.

    That's a valid point about not excercising much (walking is mine)...I'm afraid I don't go for as many walks as I should and at every WW meeting, I always say, (without fail!) that I need to be more careful and put in the extra effort (even though I could have done fine! Haha) Thanks again hun. Love the ticker, by the way! =D

    I do two ten mile bike rides a week and also go to the gym two or three times but I don't use my activity points which are between 60 and 80 but I do use all of my weekly's. I do make sure that I eat before and after exercise even if it's just a banana and drink plenty water.

    Good luck x

    I earn between 50 and 60 activity points a week and don't use mine. I don't think I'd feel like I was on a diet if I ate those as well as the dailies and weeklies. Mind you, I only use about half the weeklies too. Part of the reason for not using weeklies is to allow for any mistakes in point calculating. I know I'll still be within my limits if there's spare points on paper but I've forgotten to add a slice of bread.:rolleyes:

    It is up to individual choice, I use an android App and it gave me the choice when I set up which to use first, I settled on daily's then weekly's. I never use my activities but I earn between 60 and 80 activities a week and struggle to use my 49 weekly's lol.
