    Default Weight Watchers Point system

    Ok, you all are posting great recipes with the weight watchers point system but for those of us who don't do weight watchers, can someone explain the point system? I gather you are allowed so many points per day but how many or how do we figure up how many for us???

    Just thought I'd ask with all these recipes coming in! Looked online but couldn't find it easily, so asking here!

    Thanks!

    To find your daily points allowance, give yourself the number of points listed next to the option that fits your situation best:

    Your sex:
    If you are female- score 2 points
    If you are male- score 8
    If you are nursing- score 12

    Your age:
    17 to 26- score 4
    27 to 37- score 3
    38 to 47- score 2
    48 to 58- score 1
    Over 58- score 0

    Your current weight:
    Enter the first 2 digits of your weight in pounds. If you are 175 lbs for example, you would enter "17".

    Your height:
    under 5'1"- score 0
    5'1" to 5'10"- score 1
    Over 5'10"- score 2

    Your activity level on most days of the week, how do you spend your day?:
    sitting down- score 0
    occassionally sitting, but mostly standing- score 2
    walking most of the time- score 4
    doing physically hard work most of the time- score 6

    Add up all your scored points- that is your daily points target.

    As you celebrate your birthday, increase your daily activity, or as you lose weight, you will need to keep retaking this quiz to most accurately figure your points allowance

    Thank you!!! I get 27 points a day. I'll try this out and see if it helps me lose weight. I keep hitting plateau's and can't seem to get below 170 for the last 5 month's. I just need to lose 20 more pounds so really frustrated! Hope this will work! I only eats whole grains and no process foods at all. No simple sugars or starches-a must diet for my liver disease. I always work hard each day running the farm and walk at least an hour on our hills so exercise isn't a problem. I gained 162 pounds in less than 30 days from steroids they used on me to get my asthma under control. It's been a night mare getting that weight back off! Hope this helps!

    Yes. That is how you calculate your daily points. Also, everyone gets 35 extra points a week to do with what you like. You can divide those into 5pts per day, you can just use them as needed, or you can use them in one day - say, if you are going out to eat or say, for Thanksgiving Day, etc.
