My exercise program...
Cardio--30 minutes on treadmill, 30 minutes on elliptiical
Strength--10 minutes on treadmill, strength training (abs, arms, legs in different combinations), 20 minutes on elliptical
I alternate between the two, taking 1-2 days off per week.
I have gone down a couple sizes in clothes....went from a 20W in pants to a regular 18 and from a 2x in shirts to a regular XL.
Should you weigh on a day after you workout, or after an off day?
But what am I doing wrong?
My starting points were 32 and that is where I lost most of the weight. The points went down to 28 per day and I started hitting the wall. I've been trying the Filling Foods technique, but it's difficult for me to eat with my family. On the regular points plan, am I supposed to eat all the 35 extra points? On the Filling Foods technique, am I supposed to eat the 35 PLUS the Activity Points I earn?
I have been toying with the idea of adding Alli but am still unsure about it.
I am doing WW online because of time restraints, but searching the forums for help and suggestions more time-consuming than productive.
Does anyone have any suggestions that can help me jump start? Any suggestions to change my workout routine?

I've been with Weight Watchers since January 2, and while I understand the program and all, I've only lost appromiamately 25 pounds. I thought that by now I'd be down 30 or even 40 pounds. I get the points, I get the Filling Foods, I get the exercise. But 25 pounds over almost 8 months is disheartening.
