    Hi guys, i'm currently:
    20yrs old
    5ft 5
    16st 5.5

    and my DPA is USUALLY: 26

    However due to a rather unfortunate gain last week, i'm trying to 'faststart' in my book, now it says as i'm over 16 stone I need to have 28 points!!! Which seems to really counterproduct what my usual daily allowance is!!!

    However If i was under 16stone i'd be having 22

    Have I read something wrong somewhere, anyone give me any guidance?

    Or shall I just have my normal 26 points?!
