Do You Count Half Points?

Recommended Posts

I'm finding that technically, since our slide does not account for half points, I don't count them and try and squeeze every point out of food. I just round off to the next highest point.

 

I'm just curious, do you guys count half points or just round up like the slide does? I'm finding it easier to just deal with whole numbers (or shall we say points)!

well after going on etools- I definitely do because the ww online system does and tho I am not on etools anymore- it makes sense to do so. So I do.

I don't worry over half points. The slider rounds to the nearest point and so do I. That means that over the long term I round both ways, I figure it probably balances out.

 

It's worked for me since Points came out (almost 8 years).

Whatever number the slider lands on is what I use. The whole joy of WW is that I don't have to think too much about it.

If the slider ends up exactly on the line between 2 numbers, I call it a half; otherwise, I go with whatever number it's closest to.

 

I also use halves if something is listed as 1.5 points or if I eat half of a 3 point item or whatever.

Rarely do I use half points. I used the "old-fashioned" slider too. Like, Dawn said, maybe if I *know* I'm having half a serving or something...

I prefer to use 1/2 points- it just works better for me mentally.

I think I use whole points most of the time but there are times when I use 1/2. If the slider lands pretty close or right in between the two I use 1/2. Also, with my activity points I use half. Today, I calculated with the formula that I earned 1.819 activity points. I counted it as 1 1/2 and intend to eat them! :o)
