How to calculate number of weight watchers points/maintenance points you are allowed

1 Are You:

Female Score 3
Male Score 9

2 How Old Are You?

16 - 20 Score 5
21 - 35 Score 4
36 - 50 Score 3
51 - 65 Score 2
Over 65 Score 1

3 How Many Stones Do You Weigh?

Ignore the lb, the number of stones is your score for this question.

4 How Tall Are You?

Under 5ft 4ins Score 1
5ft 4ins or above Score 2

5 In Your Day To Day Life Are You:

Sitting down most of the time Score 0
Occasionally sitting, but mainly standing Score 2
Walking most of the time Score 4
Doing physically hard work most of the time Score 6

6 Do You Want To:

Lose weight Score 0
Maintain your current weight Score 6

Add it all up and the result is your daily points allowance under the old system.

Maintenance points are not an exact science, and some people prefer to add their points gradually to find where their body reaches its weight loss/maintenance point.
