    I did and lost 3.5lbs that week!

    In fact, I've been dreadfully naughty this week for a whole variety of reasons, and will be doing it again for a week from Wednesday.

    Good luck!

    I've done it and lost 2.5lb that week which was my biggest loss in a week to date. I'm doing it again this week in fact.
    Here's details for user above...
    The way it would work is that you use all your standard Daily PPoints as usual but distribute the Weeklies as per below:

    Day 1 +2
    Day 2 +8
    Day 3 +3
    Day 4 +18
    Day 5 +2
    Day 6 +9
    Day 7 +7

    I've used it and I found that it got me out of the rut I was stuck in. I plan on doing it again next week (I have a plans this coming week which mean that I'll need to keep my weeklies for.)

    I'll let you know how I get on.

    does it work if you do it all the time or just as a once in a while boost?

    I don't think I'd follow it all the time, just once in a while to shock the metabolism lol. Doing it this week as I'm hovering around the same weight for 3 weeks so hoping it'll give me a boost :)

    Just remembering doing the Wendy plan way back when, before the "Discover Plan" was even called that - back when it was still "123 Success"... god that was a laugh! :8855: I have this recollection of getting through a day (somehow) on 12 points once. Not an experience I would choose to repeat! :eek:

    It seems to me that ProPoints really is the Wendy plan if you think about it - we all spread our weeklies out across the week in different ways anyway, and I'm willing to bet that having 1 very high day and 6 lower ones is a really, really common way of doing it.

    Its similar but you'll never have to give up any of your daily pp the way you did on the old plan (no way I could've done that). You're topping up your pp every day but doing it in a certain way which keeps your metabolism ticking over I think. Worked well for me, worth a try for anyone who's having trouble I'd say :)

    i might try it if my losses hit a rock. but so far so good. ... can't remember the exact spread out of the weeklies but i tend to save my weeklies till the weekend and use what i need then (so these are my higher usage days), then if i have some left they are there to use over the week before WI :)

    I tried it but it didn't have that much of a difference in my losses for me, I was so disappointed (although I don't know for sure if the Wendy Plan worked 'accurately' for me- in and out of doctors at the minute you see). :(
