I originally did WW early 2000's. ( I can only remember because I was living in the bay area at the time). I don't remember if it was points plus, or winning points. But it was the first time they introduced the CORE plan as an option, or you count your points based off value and have the extra 35 weekly points to use as you see fit. I did very well.
Not sure if this was the plan you were thinking of, but alas, I was able to find all the old books and weekly handouts online on ebay. I paid a pretty penny for them, but it was what worked for me before, and I actually gained on the new plan... not sure how that happened.
But I hope that might help.
PS. Have you looked at Dottie's Weight Loss Zone? (www.dwlz.com)

I've been using a free app for a long time now (android, not sure if apple has it) called Diet Points Calculator, it let's me calculate my points the old way, with just calories/fat/fiber. It's a free app and I've been using it a while now. It's a bit clunky in that nothing is saved, you have to enter every good from the beginning, so it's like you're entering a database as you go. After a while it can be quite convenient though.
There is a mobile app, iTrackBites that lets you choose the old WW (classic) program. The app is a few bucks, and they have a ton of food items listed. For like an additional 3 bucks you can get the dining out guide and there are other guides available. I haven't need to purchase any guides (except the dining out) because between the app's listing of foods and Dotties weight loss zone (dwlz.com) everything is covered. There is a point calculater in the app as well and it tells you how many points you are allowed for your weight. Youcant also track on line in the app

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.
