WW At Home - Now I'm confused about amount of points I should have

I am following a 2007 WW plan, so maybe that is where the discrepancy lies. I am reading posts here and I am eating more points than people who weigh more than I do. Here is what my WW instructions say I can have:

Female: 2
Age (27-37): 3
Weight: 16
Height (5'1"-5'10"): 1
Activity level (SAHM): 2
Total Points Allowed: 24

Does that seem right? I lost weight successfully using this formula 3 years ago (before turning 30, lol.) I have started and quit so many times since then because I lose weight the first two weeks then lose nothing to very little (around half a pound) in the next couple of weeks. It's discouraging to work so hard for little results so I end up quitting.

I started back up again 4 weeks ago...lost 4 lbs in week 1, lost 2 lbs in week 2, then gained 1/2 pound in week 3. I was discouraged, but went back through my old journals and noticed I had a big drop in weight in weeks 1 and 2, then nothing in 3 and 4, then went on to a steady average of losing 2 lbs per week after that.

So obviously, I need to give this more than 3 weeks to get good results, but do you think my points are high??

It look good to me .
Remember to take a point down , every time you lose 10 pounds.

Your two points for your activity level can be what is boosting your points up. If you have a sit down job, like me, then you wouldn't add any points for that.. so someone your weight with low activity would only be eating 22 points...

lookls right to me, and yes depending on t ype of job that could be the only grey area. Keep up the good work, and not every week is the scale kind to any of us. Remember its a journey not a one way street
