If you are a paying member you would know all about it.

Anyways... the 35 are flex points with in the points system. The 35 are "free points" given to you so you can have some extras when you want and tailor the program around you. You are never supposed to go below your target range but whether you use 1 flex point of 5 a day (or none) is all up to you.

WW is a great program and the poster about was rude, but the truth is once you pay for the program it is all laid very understandably out for you.

You must be the terrorist PT blogger that has been menacing all these threads. Really, you need to CHILL OUT!

As for the PT post, when you start WW you are given a range of pts depending on several factors. Check out previous threads for that info. The 35 pts are extra - you don't earn them you just get them to use however you want or not at all if you want to see more results. You can earn points depending on how uch you exercise. Attend a WW meeting when the registration is free, collect all the info and if you can't afford to go again, at least you have the tools. good luck!

Thanks I Geuss

I just wanted to thank the person who actually answered my question politley...

To the others....I'm sorry if you can't understand that there are some people that don't have alot of money to lose weight and struggle to do so on their own...I am a single mother who works full time, yet still struggles to pay the bills, so next time when you want to give a rude comment think first because you do not know the situation!!

4:40 poster here

I, contrary to popular belief, was trying to be helpful.

WW is a great program and the info regarding the program is difficult to explain from one member to another and that was all I was trying to say. Go to WW online and read the info they give (they explain the basics of the program) research it off google... go to a center. You may not have a lot of money but the first meeting is free and they explain everything in detail. I too am a single mom who works full time and goes to school full time and I easily pay the $15 a month (I justify it as an investment in myself).

Extra points on weight watchers

I bought the weight watchers kit on-line, so I don't attend meetings. I think the information about the extra points is vague. Here is my situation: I get 22 points a day. Do you mean to tell me that if I spend 22 points each day for 7 days, I get an extra 35 points( to be used for that week, only)? Isn't this just for the Core plan, where you eat the core foods PLUS have an extra 35 points a week to eat whatever is not on the Core list?

You get an extra 35 points per week no matter which plan you are doing - flex or core. So if you have 22 points per day, you get your 22 points per day that you shouldn't go under, and then 35 to do with as you like. Use them, don't use them, spread them out over the whole week or go to town on the weekend - your choice.
