# How do I calculate how many Weight Watchers points I can eat?

I am trying to start weight watchers but cannot afford it! I need to know how to calculate my points allowance per day. I found one post on here that helped, but didn't tell me the weight of a "stone" to finish the calculation! So please, if someone can give me the complete calculation formula, I would appreciate it!

Considering you are inquiring about how many points allowed per day, I am assuming you plan to follow the "Flex Plan" (there are two options- Flex and Core).

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Keep in mind that people who attend Weight Watchers meetings lose 3x more than those who go at it alone. To find a meeting location near you or to find out the current price promotions for membership, please look at their website:

You have to have a 'points finder' that you have to get from a weight watcher center - I have a friend that joined for one month (online it's like \$29 for a month), went to the first couple of meetings and got all of the information, and then cancelled her membership and tried to do it on her own after that - I think you get a lot from attending the weekly weigh-in and meeting, but you could try that -

Go to this website and print off all the information, food lists, etc. It is the WW program from a woman named Dottie. It is completely free and teaches you how to do the WW Flex Point plan without paying for the meetings.
www.dwlz.com (that stands for Dottie's Weight Loss Zone)

Good Luck!!!!!
