If you are happy with your rate of weight loss (slow and steady) and you are satisfied with your food intake (i.e. you aren't starving all the time) then you are doing the right amount of points for you.
The flex points and the activity points are like a savings account - they are there if you need them. You never "have" to eat your extra points. But you should be able to eat all of them and not gain weight.
I keep the "savings account" for special occasions like parties or going out for dinner, etc. If I don't use that week's extra points, I just start over the next week.
It is all about what makes you happy. Eat more and lose slower or eat less and lose faster. And you can change it up whenever the need arises.
IT NEVER GETS EASIER - YOU JUST GET BETTER.
