    So I worked out my daily point limit as 29 a day but today I have gone slightly over at 33 points. Hope it doesn't ruin things too much

    Don't worry.

    I have done this many times. A massive part of weight watchers is not to deprive yourself so it is obvious that from time to time you might go over your points. But remember, everyone is given a 49 point weekly budget to eat into how they please. so just count the extra 4 points as your weekly overspend :)

    Hope this helps x x x

    And good luck!

    Thanks guys so doesn't the extra 49 points ruin the whole point of being healthy and being good? It's good tho cos I might just save my points for my Sunday dinner :)

    No its brilliant. I use my 49 points on a sunday so i can eat what i like but you can break them up through the wk if it suits you better . I lost 15 pound in 6 wks so dont worry it still works x x

    What you need to teach yourself is that this isn't a diet and isn't meant to be faddy. Its a lifestyle change. And everyone has treats in life don't they? The 49 are there for treats or occasions or unplanned moments. WW pp is great as you aren't deprived of anything. I use my 49 every week and I still lose weight but enjoy myself too!

    The 49 points have been calculatef by WW so that even if you eat the 49 you're still going to lose weight (largely calorie related i think but obviously pps take more into account)
    I think everyone thinks theyre eating too much at some point but honestly it works- i think 29pp a day and no more would be far too little.
