I just joined Weight Watchers Online. I don't have a smart phone so I need a tracker when I'm away from home so that I can enter the info when I get back to a computer. Their daily tracker 3 month notebook is too small for my clumsy fingers, bad eyesight, and large writing, so here is my first attempt at making my own. This is the first of what I hope will eventually be the 4 basic pages of the tracker notebook: the daily tracker, daily tracker pg 2 with water, fruit, etc checkoffs, and the 2 page weekly tracker (which might actually fit on one page). I'll edit those in to this post later, and I might edit this document a little bit too as I use it and discover its faults.
This is a Microsoft Word document, hopefully readable in the 97 - 03 versions. I never really got the hang of Open Office, so I just stick with what I know. Please give me feedback or suggest changes if you have any. Thanks.
Just use it however works best for you to track your points. You can even write in the nutrition info and calculate the points later.
Weight Watcher Points
to track WW points
My mother has been doing weight watchers....and is now literally half the person she use to be! A few months ago I introduced her to circa, and she loves it. She uses compact size and it is perfect for her every day needs to keep important info, weight watchers logs, and other essentials. What made it perfect for her was the ability to rearrange the pages, and start over if she made a mistake...just pull the page out. So She was using the full page ruled sheets to keep track of her diet, until they came out with this new Momentum program. So I did some research and came up with my version of this. With a little DIY tweaking and motivational bits here and there this is what I came up with. She loves it and I have printed out double sided pages on compact size paper I cut myself and punch to fit the circa notebook.
The weekly page goes first, on the back of that a daily page, after that print out 3 pages of daily double sided and you have a whole week on 4 sheets.
Working to get my grocery shopping under control to keep the budget down, we are switching over to doing menu planning, weekly at first.
I whipped up this this weekend to help me out, and to make it look like the rest of my planner.
Included are .pdf for Classic and for Letter size as well as the source OpenOffice file.
Print two sided. The Classic size is on letter size, 2-up.
This is a simple, printable version of the Weight Watchers Flex Plan QuikTrak Express Points Tracker that I made. Instead of Activity Points, it has a space for tracking water intake, which I find is more useful.
I print this file on both sides of a sheet of paper, cut it horizontally, fold both halves vertically, stack the pages, and staple in the center to make a booklet. This isn't necessary, though. You can just print the page and have 4 weeks of Points tracking on a single letter-size page.
A simple 8 up daily weight watchers point tracker.
Print both sides and cut into quarter sheets. Stack them on top of each other and staple in the middle to make a booklet. I used the DIY Planner Widget kit to create this in OpenOffice.
A simple 8-up Weight Watcher points tracker.
this template was created using the DIY Planner widget kit 06.
I print it on both sides of the paper and cut the sheet into 4 pieces. stack the pieces on top of each other , fold it in half and staple the middle. I picked up an inexpensive pocket calendar with a leather-like case and use the case to hold my tracker. Hope someone finds it useful.
This is my first attempt at making a template, so apologies if it's not quite up to standards! This form fits on a 3 x 5 card, and allows you to track your food intake for different calorie levels by x'ing boxes to represent portions of different foods. Standard portions according to the Diabetic Assoc'n guidelines were used to match the different calorie levels; distribution of food types for different calorie levels is as per "Weight No More," a program that I took at a local hospital.
I'm attaching three files - the open office source, a "3 x 5" pdf that contains one landscaped image for printing directly to index cards, and a "cardstock" pdf that contains 6 forms. Print two-sided on cardstock and cut them apart; the images line up on top of each other back-to-back. Finished, cut cards are 2.8" x 5.5" - that works okay for me but you may want to trim for 5" width.

- Jorge Cruise, whose book 8 Minutes in the Morning provided inspiration for the "draw the line at the desired calorie level and eat what's on the left side of the line idea; and
- Miriam Nelson, whose book Strong Women Stay Slim provided guidance on number of servings for different calorie levels.
Draw a solid vertical line immediately to the right of your desired daily calorie level. The boxes to the left of the line represent your allowed portions of those food groups for the day. "X" in each box as you eat a standard portion of that food; when the boxes are full you are done eating (or else you are cheating!). Also includes 8 boxes for water intake - standard 8 oz cup per box.

This template allows the user to track their daily points as well as daily water, oil, milk and fruit and vegetable intake. There is also a place for tracking weekly flex points and activity points.
The thing I like about this layout is that all seven days of the week are in view at one time with Days 1 through 4 on the left page and Days 5 through 7 on the right.
The downside is that the available space for notations is small as compared with WW's own tracker. The upside is that it fits right in my planner.
Use to track your WW flex points
