WW Points

Does anyone have how to calculate how points you should be eating with the new weight watchers flex plan? I've heard the formula has more involved then the old one with points assigned by weight range. I haven't been able to find anything on-line with this info.

That's because they want you to go to (and pay for ) a meeting.

Sorry, I don;t recall the details and don't have my info packet with me. I know it starts with the first two digits of your weight. (So I am 144 that means 14.)
Then adds points based on height - the shorter you are, the fewer points you get. BUt I don't recall the exact formula.

What I do know is that my target points went down :(

At age 46, height 5'5", and weight 144, my target is 19. And that's tough.
