    ...I am set to carry over 3 points tonite cos I dint have time for tea and have kinda snacked (healthily!!) throughout the day...I know I shouldnt carry over more than 4 per day, but is it actually ok to use all my carried over points on the same day?!

    I ask because I have a date Sunday evening, we are going to the cinema and then for a few drinks and I want to be able to relax and not worry about my points at all!

    I have 22 points per day, so if I added the 3 from today to Sundays thats 25, and maybe carry 2 tomoz making 27, would that massively mess me up?? I hope this kinda makes sense....I'm tired!!

    I was told you can carry 4 a day as many days as you like but all your points should be used by the end of the week :confused:

    thats what I was told too. I thought it was only the excercise ponts that are limited so if you save more than a certain amount then theyre lost.

    I was also told that you can save up to 4 points a day for as many days as you like, so long as you use them all up by the end of the week. And you can use them all up on the same day if you like too - according to what my leader told me when I joined.

    Good luck with your date tomorrow night!! Be good!!...and if you can't be good, be careful ;o)

    Ive just checked the WW handbook. On Page 43 it states:

    If you need a bigger points allowance for a special occasion like a meal out or a party, increase your points allowance by:

    Saving some from each of the previous few days

    When you need to, you can save up to 4 points from your daily points allowance, but do not go below 14 in any one day and use all of your saved points allowance within one week

    Earning bonus points through exercise:

    You can earn as large a points bonus in a week as you wish. However you may only spend a points bonus of 12 per week on food. Aim to earn more than you eat


    It looks like thats where the confusion has been with the 12 points.

    So you can indeed save up to 4 points a day for as many days as you want but you must use them all up by the end of your week

    Hope that clarifies things :)
