I rejoined Weight Watchers this weekend. I'm trying to go in with a very different mindset. I haven't even started thinking about points yet. I'm looking up recipes to try (going down the Pinterest rabbit hole, come join me http://pinterest.com/copax0122/) , thinking about kitchen things I need to buy. When I start thinking about points, I'm going to just calculate what I eat right now. I'm not going to try to pre-adjust my diet. If I'm relatively near my recommended points, great. If I'm twice my points, that's great too. At least I'll have a better idea of what to work on. I looked at the number from the scale, but I'm going to try and ignore it to some degree. I'm also considering joining a gym, but for now I'm going to focus on making some diet changes, and using my exercise bike or the exercise equipment they have at work. I'd like to someday work with a personal trainer and understand "how to exercise"
