Starryiz I hope you've had some success in these last few weeks. I'm in the same boat as you. I joined WW in 2011, lost 34 lbs, made lifetime and then life happened. I gained 14 lbs and have now lost a few but I'm ready to get on with these last few lbs.
WW reduced their points b/c people weren't losing fast enough if their daily target was 29. They would get discouraged and stop. You will lose weight faster by using 26 points instead of 29. You can still use 29 points, but over 7 days that's going to be 21 of your weekly points. Remember you always earn points through activity -- which is where I need to ramp things up now.
I will get back to my goal weight!
