Hi Pam, I dont know where you can get the old books. Why dont you come on over to where we ask and answer questions the most, as a team. Its under the first thread, "Weigh in support". We are a great and open team, dont be afraid to post. I know when someone is new and first sees a large group, it may be daunting and they may be hesitant to post, but dont be with us, jump right in. We all have our own plans that is working for us, counting cals, flex plan, core plan, etc. One of us is bound to have the answers you need. Again, welcome, ~Heidi

I lost 40 lbs on the plan through ww that was before the current plan. This is when they had the core food plan and the flex plan. I started at 24 points a day and went down to 20 points a day when I reached my goal weight. My goal weight was only 17 lbs from the current weight I was at, but I kept loosing until I reached a weight of 145 even though my goal weight was 160. Now, 5 years later I am back up to 180....actually higher than when I started WW. I started going back to WW when I was at 175 and ended up gaining weight and stopped going. This time last year I was at 161 and have gained 20 pounds in one year. Lots of factors caused that. Loss of employment, selling our home, relocating, stress with family. Doctor checked everything through blood work and I have no underlying health issues that would cause the weight gain. I do have a foot problem that needs to have surgery which has kept be from being more active, so I know that has contributed as well. I do not like the points plus plan at all and would like to go back to the plan that was previous to that. Can anyone help me find out the food guide and the 'free foods' and the points value for food. I threw away all my old info when I went back and started the points plus. Big mistake.
Thanks for any info. I'm new to this site, and I'm still trying to figure out where I belong as far as groups go.
