I just started up last week with the online program myself and am loving the new program versus the old. I don’t really try and set point limits by meals, although that’s not a bad idea.  I do try and keep my breakfasts around 5 or 6 points though and that includes my coffee.  I also try and pre-plan what I’m making for dinner (if I can) so I can set aside those points early in the day.

I love WW online and am doing it for the second time. (lost over 20lbs the first time and kept it off for a while).

I also have 29 daily and 49 weekly.

I try to decide on dinner ahead of time like @chrispygal:

I find that really helps with the rest of the day.

My usual breakfast is either:

English Muffin w/ low fat (or tofu) cream cheese, 1 slice tomato, 1 – 1 1/2 c fruit and coffee with skim & splenda (or occasionally a skim latte)

OR

English muffin w/ egg whites, 1 slice American cheese, banana & coffee

 

Lunch changes daily (I have a fantastic work cafeteria with WAY too many tempting unhealthy choices, but also a lot of delicious healthy ones). Usually I try for either sushi w/ brown rice & miso soup or a big mixed salad w/ balsamic vinagrette and feta cheese.

 

Snack is usually fruit of some kind or a handful of almonds

 

Dinner – if I cook is usually some WW recipe with chicken, or we do take out (chinese, mexican, and thai are our staples) and I’m trying to figure out how to fit take out into a healthy lifestyle since I am often WAY to busy to cook.

@BellBride: I’m 5’8″ and 167.

29 is the lowest “daily points” you can get on their new plan and everyone gets 49 weekly. So if you are “closer” to your goal weight/healthy weight range you will usually end up with fewer daily points.

I also have 29 daily points and 49 activity points: 

 

For breakfast I use 3 Points (Thomas’s 100 calorie english muffin)

Lunch: Lean Cuisine/ Smart ones- 7-9 points

and I save the rest for dinner- I do really well during the day, so I know I have some wiggle room for dinner.

@futuremrsrichardson: Just one English muffin gets you through the morning? OMG. I would die.

Though I think I’m hungriest at breakfast and lunch.

My favorite 4 pt egg sandwich:

Nature’s Grain Lite eng muffin – 2 pts (really high in fiber)

1 slice 2% cheese – 1 pt

1 slice turkey bacon – 1 pt

1 egg white – 0 pts

I started WW over 2 years ago. I am 5’8″ and at the time I started I weighed 176lbs. After months of sticking strictly to the my alloted points for the day (I never used activity points , even though I was going to the gym) and I only used the extra weekly bonus points sparingly, if at all. I consistently lost 2lbs per week. Overall I got to down to 143lbs! I was so amazed and proud of myself. ( I have managed to keep most of that off…back up over 150 now, but for over 2 years I feel that’s pretty good!)

I was on the old WW mind you, but I started with 26 points everyday with 35 extra weekly points. By the time I was down to 143 I was eating 23 points a day. The new plan is essentially the same, the points you can have per day has increased, but so has the point values of some foods.

I loved WW, and the most important thing is to eat ALL of your points!

@Miss Sydney: I usually tried to eat foods that were low in points through most of the day, so that I could really save my points up for dinner. Especially since that was my fave meal, and I was more likely to snack at night…

Some tips:

I eat 35 cal bread (it’s thinner, but still very good…they have wheat, white, multigrain.) It’s only 1 point for two slices.

I buy 96-99% ff lunch meat fromt he deli…you can have 2-3 slices (depending on thickness) for 1 point.

Light mayo…I never use as much as 2 tbsp, so for me there are ZERO points there.

I also like the light soups out there, but be careful to watch your sodium intake.

and I can’t stress how mUCH I love 100 calorie packs, light whole grain waffles, 90 cal fiber one bars, etc, etc.

And I tried my damned-est to not eat after 9pm!

*I also found a meeting in my area. I found that even if I didn’t stay for the meeting, the act of getting on that scale in front of someone else to be weighed held me VERY accountable every week. It was a great motivator! Just a suggestion :o)

Sorry so long!

Good luck to each of you ladies!!!
