Found an old WW plan here - it may help

Wanted - Information on Original Weight Watchers Plan

Scroll about halfway down

PS 'Old' floaters (someone mentioned) = flex points (from a few years back)

PPS - A little more info I found when googling - FWIW

Go to www.sewessential.blogspot.com for recipes and info on the old WW Exchange system.

[SIZE=2]Old WW Diet Exchange Plan:[/SIZE]

Week 1 Women - 3 fruit, 2(at least) vegetables, 2 milk, 2 bread, 3 fat, 6 protein and up to 150 optional calories to use as you want throughout the week.
Men do the same except they add 1 extra fruit, 2 breads and 2 protein exchanges daily.

Week 2 women - Protein goes up to 7 exchanges (ounces) per day and the optional calories go up to 200.
Men - Same as women but add a protein (9 per day).

Week 3 Women - Same, except bread goes up to 3 per day and optional goes up to 250/week.
Same for men; add 1 protein and go to 250 optional.

Week 4 and beyond women - 3 fruit, 2 (at least) veggies, 2 milk, 2 to 3 bread, 3 fat, 6 to 8 protein and up to 550 optional calories a week.
Men - 4 to 6 fruits, 2 (at least) veggies, 2 milk, 4 to 5 bread, 3 fat, 8 to 10 protein, and up to 550 optional per week. Fruits are small to medium or 1/2 cup fruit or juice. Milk products: are 1 cup fat free yogurt, 1/2 cup reduced calorie pudding. Bread 80 cal, 3/4 oz. cereal, pita 1 oz., roll 1 oz., (no potatoes until week 2). Protein 1 oz. of any.
Week 2 add 3 oz. potato, 1/2 cup pasta, 1 oz. English muffin or bagel, 1/2 cup rice.
Week 3 add 2 cups popcorn, 2 oz. cooked beans, lentils, or peas. Cheese is 1 oz. for protein. Hope this helps.

After looking for the Weight Watchers old exchange plan info endlessly, I found an exchange system on the TOPS (take off pounds sensibly) website.You can print out a list of all the exchanges and food measurements, etc. on their tools button. I am thrilled to find that it is nearly like the WW old program! Hope this helps

I also found a website helpful to an updated exchange program. http://www.healthy.hillbillyhousewife.com/foodplans.html

I was on it in '69. My mom held the book, and I don't have it, but I can tell you that I had to eat six portions (3 oz) of fish a week, three of meat. I had to eat at least a cup of vegetables every lunch and dinner. I had to drink two GALLONS of water a day.

We had to make our catsup. (It was nasty.) I had to eat my tuna sandwiches with mustard, onion, and lettuce. (Eeeck.) I lived for the three meat meals!

I lost 35 pounds in six weeks, and never looked back until 2007, when I joined again.

It's a better program, now.

Yikes, I don't rem. the homemade ketchup or all that drinking water but I prob. drink close to that much now, esp. w/ the summer. I like tunafish sandwiches but not w/ mustard or onion, basically plain packed in water mixed w/ a tad of lite mayo or lite ranch dressing but every day I'd prob. lose my enthusiasm for them. Losing 35 lbs in 6 wks is great though, very motivating. We know what we're supp. to eat (or not eat), it's a question of keeping the momentum going and eating small portions, low sodium etc - upping the exercise - there's a lot of choices out there (too many sometimes). Have bought the WW tv dinners (mac & cheese, meatloaf, chi caccitore, turkey meatballs w/ pasta and I think 1 other that I can't rem. now) and they're not too bad, in fact I've frozen some and later nuked them and they come out fine for a quick meal, I think they're 5 or 6 points.
