Weight Watchers is one of the most popular diet plans in America, and it is based on tracking every single thing you eat or drink. Each food is assigned a Points value, and you are given both a Daily Points Allowance and a Weekly Points Allowance–when you stay within these Points allowances, you are likely to lose weight.
The PointsPlus plan by Weight Watchers is based on a seven day tracking week, which can be started on any day of the week. The tracking week usually begins whatever day the member first signed up for the Weight Watchers program. Many members like to stick to their original tracking day, but what if another day of the week is more convenient for you? Can you change the day of the week that your Weight Watchers plan resets and that you weight in?
The answer to the question is yes! If you belong are a Weight Watchers Monthly Pass Subscriber or a Weight Watchers Meetings Member, you can feel free to simply show up to a meeting on a different day of the week–you are free to switch your meeting day at any time. Because you weigh-in at the meetings, this is a great way to reset your tracking week to begin on the day that you prefer.
If you are a Weight Watchers Online Member or eTools Subscriber, changing your start day is even easier. Just go to your online plan manager at www.weightwatchers.com and click the “Settings” button. From there, click the “Set Weight & Goals” tab, and then you will be able to change the day of the week that your tracker begins. Now, you will be prompted to enter your weekly weight on the day of the week that you selected, and your Weekly Points Allowance will also reset the same day. It is very simple. You can do this as often as you wish.
If you are a Weight Watchers ActiveLink subscriber, you will need to log into your personal ActiveLink website separately if you would like your “activity week” to start the same day as your tracking week. You should note that even if you change your ActiveLink to begin on a different day of the week, your Activity Challenge goal will still change on the original day. So if you began ActiveLink on a Monday, your weekly goal will always increase on a Monday, even if your tracking week begins on a different day.
There is no reason that your Weight Watchers PointsPlus plan can’t begin on the day of the week you prefer. If you have any questions about this process, you can contact your Weight Watchers leader or call Weight Watchers customer service at 1-800-651-6000.
