Make Your Own Points Counter Bracelet

Weight Watchers BraceletWeight Watchers sells a bracelet for counting points for about twenty bucks. It’s not too pretty, but it features a movable charm that allows you to keep track of how many points you’ve eaten. The only problem with the bracelet is that anyone who has attended Weight Watchers would recognize those cheap pearls and black beads from a mile away. It practically screams, “I’m on Weight Watchers!!”

Sutherland Studios, however, has step-by-step instructions on how to make a similar bracelet.

Make Your Own Points Counter BraceletThey suggest that you could use the bracelet to keep track of rows of knitting or crochet, but this would be genius for discretely keeping track of your Weight Watcher points. Since you are making it yourself, you can put the number of beads for YOUR points limit. The second string, with additional charms, could keep track of your veggies, dairy, oils and water. I imagine five green beads for veggies, six green beads for water, two white beads for dairy and two clear beads for oils.

Because you make it yourself, choosing your own beads, no one would be able to tell that it was for keeping track of Weight Watcher points. You could just privately move over the stretchy bead when you eat your meal unnoticed.

If you make a bracelet such as this, post a message in the comments linking to yours and show off your talents!

    I have a question about weight watchers. I am one of those people who’s target goal was to lose 15 pounds. I lost 8 rather steadily on the point system. I exercise 5xper week and I don’t even count the exercise points so that I keep my # low. I plateaued 6 weeks ago.I kept on the flex plan hoping it would bump the plateau…no luck. I am now trying the core plan. Any suggestions? I want to lose the last 7 pounds, but honestly do not know how.I eat healthy and exercise a lot. Thanks! Barb

    I make a glam version of WW points bracelets called “Skinny Bitch” bracelets! You can view them at my website. They are a great tracker for when you are on program and a lovely reminder of what you have accomplished for when you get to goal!!

    Barb–

    Switching to core plan might help, but if you’ve been doing the same exercise program for a long time, your body may have become accustomed to it. You may need to find a new way to exercise to kick your body into losing those last pounds. You also might want to check to see that you’re consuming the right amount of points–as you’ve lost weight, you might have fallen into another points bracket and not realized it. Other than that, you might just have to drink lots of water and wait.
