    I did ask in my diary but thought it better to ask in a new post. I hope thats ok.

    I really do need help with one thing if anyone can help, My daughter wants help to slim down a bit, The doctor agreed yesterday it would help her if she joined me on ww, but i am doing the at home thingy, i have no idea what sort of points she would need,I did suggest we attend a meeting which she refused as she is embarresed. does anyone know how i would work out a points value for her, she is 12 yrs old weighs 12st 1.5 lbs and is just under 5ft tall. Thank you .

    p.s i just rang ww who just told me to take her to a meeting with Gp's letter, i explained that she doesn't want to attend and they just said sorry can't help you then. :sigh:

    Just looked up my book there - it says if you're under 16 that you will need to talk to a leader for guidance..
    Could you not ring your local ww again and ask can you meet before the class starts or after it ends so your daughter won't be embarassed?

    According to this site she should add two extra points because of her age.. she is in the 150 - 174 category which is normally 22 points so that means she should be on 24 points a day

    does anyone have the weight watchers points list?

    hth! x
     
  6. Hiya, I have an older ww book. The one called the switch handbook. at the back there's a page headed personal points allowances for young people. It says that under 16s need more points because they're still growing, then there's a chart. so your daughter would need 25 points.

    age girls boys
    10 21 24
    11 23 27
    12 25 29
    13 26 31
    14 27 35
    15 28 37

    I'm sure this is an older book I have but if it was correct and good enough a couple of years ago I'm sure it wouldn't be far wrong now.

    Hope this helps. x

    Hi lovey,my daughter is 11 this dec and shes always getting teased for her weightxx
     

  11. No problem. I remembered seeing it because I have an 11 year old daughter. She doesn't have a weight problem but she doesn't eat well. She'll pick at all the good stuff I give her then eat loads of biscuits or chocolate later. Although she's normal weight just now I worry that she'll put on weight later because of the way she eats.

    Hope your daughter enjoys her new eating plan. I'm sure she'll do well. xxx
