The New Program : PointsPlus

With Weight Watchers unveiling their new PointsPlus plan, it feels like a perfect time to start back up (again!) and get tracking. Admittedly, I've gained back 8 of the pounds I had shed the first time around and I need to get back in check. (We'll need to come clean with the Backstreet Boy image and drop that weight loss meter down I suppose, too.)

I haven't cracked what this new plan means yet, but I did manage to find out that a 4oz. glass of wine has doubled from 2 POINTS values to 4 PointsPlus values.

And, even though it looks like the weekly allowance total has been upped to 49, this news seems to hit a little close to home for the Winos!

I will keep reading the site to bring you important wine & foodie related updates, but in the meantime, has anyone attended a kick off meeting already about the new plan? Any advice?


  1. Yep, looks like we are going to have to change the name of this blog to 22 Points! Bummer! From what I can tell, the plan is based on energy and how many calories the body will use to break down certain foods. The more energy you use, the lower the points. I have also gained some back and I decided to clear the board, start with all new fresh stats and try to work this new plan to the max! Who's with me??

  2. I am with you! I tracked everything today and am going to plan for a run or two this week in between work stuff and holiday parties ... maybe not the best time of year to kick start this new regime, but there's no time like the present!

  3. I'm trying it but I'm a carb whore so I'm not liking it a lot. I lost 1 pound since starting on Monday (WI was today). And a US Pint of beer is 6 points (sobbing).
