Doing Weight Watchers Online...NEED HELP!!!
I'm started doing weight watchers online...and I have a question.
They base how many "points" you are supposed to take in as food each day based on your height and weight.
Problem is, me being a paraplegic with atrophy in my legs, my height is 5'6", but my weight is 152 pounds (30 year old male, but all my extra fat is on my upper body).
Now, when I was 25 years old, I was 5'6" and 110 pounds.
So, my question is, is my daily "points" being thrown off because of my injury?
Anyone with experience with this????

I don't think it should matter where the extra weight is. If your legs are atrophied it kind of evens out. ABs can have uneven weight distribution

I do not know either. I was thinking of joining weight watchers also but not knowing how the point system would work with the lost of weight because of us in a wheelchair. When I lose weight I have to like eat nothing. And I do not want to do that anymore .It ONLY HURT ME IN THE LONG RUN
