How many points am I allowed on Weight Watchers?

Hi there -- I don't belong to WW, but I noticed a lot of PT members using the Point System. I'm wondering how I can calculate how many points I should be having per day. I found an online calculator and determined that yesterday I had 33 points. Can anyone help?

Here are the rough Point value you need:

Less than 150 pounds = 18-25 Points
150 to 174 pounds = 20-27 Points
175 to 199 pounds = 22-29 Points
200 to 224 pounds = 24-31 Points
225 to 250 pounds = 26-33 Points
Over 250 pounds = 28-35 Points

This is for the basic plan. Going to a couple meetings might not be a bad idea, they will help you tailor a points plan for you. It depends on the meeting leader, some are much better than others.

Thank You!

I am the OP -- thank you. I way over-did my points as I am 145lbs so it should be in the 18-25 range. Oh well -- I'll start keeping better track tomorrow!

Instead of ranges, they now do a single # and then give you a weekly allowance

So instead of 18-23, I'm 20 pts, and 35 weekly extra. The extras are intended to be used.
