I am also at 26 points, I was told I must eat all my points PLUS my fruits and veggie servings everyday, or I will not have enough calories to be safe on a daily basis. I think that is good advice
It makes sense to me. I have not used all of my weeklies so far, and have never touched my activity points.
I have been reading about people using activity points instead of weeklies (so they have to earn the extra points) and I may do that, but so far I don't think I would have gone over activity points either.
