  2. I understand, however, I'm trying to do the 10,000 steps a day fitness routine. Each and every step counts for that daily goal - so should every step I take while I'm awake count for activity points, too? I mean, if I was to lay around all day and just eat packaged WW meals, and then took a 1 mile walk... then yes, that would be the 'activity' for the day or the AP. My job as a computer operator calls for me to sit at a computer most of the day, but since I'm wearing a pedometer, I find myself getting up more often - probably just a little more than usual - so that is why I say that I was excited to see that I was walking that much. I didn't know I was walking that far on a daily basis and I was hoping that would count for something, but if not, I'm also going to 24hour Fitness on a nightly basis and doing a lot of cardio exercises as well as weight lifting.
  3. I just recently started wearing a pedometer at work. I'm excited to see that I'm walking over 2 miles indoor on a daily bases, so as an added bonus, I mapped out areas that I can walk around town during my afternoon break; 12 blocks = 1 mile. Now that i'm using a pedometer, should I count the distance as one activity (e.g. the grand total of miles I walked in any given day) or just the time when I walk during my break? I'm averaging about 4 miles a day, with 1 of those miles being accomplished during my break. I hope the other 3 counts towards "something".
  4. As I was eating my Chicken of the Sea - Pink Salmon this morning, I forgot what the nutritional information was for a serving. So, instead of getting up and getting the can out of the trash, I searched for the info on the internet, using a site that I had previously trusted when looking for nutrional info. Anyhow, the site stated that a serving of the the pink salmon (2oz) was 90 cal and 5 grams of fat. That didn't look right as I had previously looked at the nutritional info on the actual can before I threw it away. So I got up to go into the kitchen to fetch the can. Sure enough, the can states: for a 2oz serving, 60 cal, 2g of fat. So my question, who do I believe? The website, which I thought was accurate and had trusted it enough to gauge my points in the past, or do I trust the information on the actual product? Sounds sort of like a silly question as I type this out, but I feel like I'm being mislead. How are we to be sure that the actual info on the package is correct? Maybe the info on the site is old info and the info on the can has since been updated?
  5. Way to go buddy! Great job!
  6. Great job! I'm curious to know what the rest of you looks like
  7. Thank you. I wish the board was configured so that we could delete our posts if we made a mistake. Is that function possible?
  8. I'm doing WW at work. We received a little card stock at the end of the 2nd meeting and it had the access code hidden behind a scratch off thing. As for the person that said $39.95 for the monthly pass and E-tools is worth it? I guess you're right. I sort of feel like we're being ripped by paying $25 bi-weekly. $175 total for 17 weeks - taken from our payroll. I'm not sure if I'm going to continue this program (paying, meetings, etc), at the end of 17 weeks. I mean, if I invest in this again, I'll be starting over at week 1 again - but at my new weight? So instead of 43 points, I may have (i don't know, lets say..) 34? Well, if I continued doing what I was doing during the first 17 weeks, I should be alright. The folks in the meeting are my co-workers and most of them I see daily. The only thing I would miss is the once a week weigh in - in other words, it's something I look forward to at the end of the week. I still have my co-workers, my tools and all of you nice people.
  9. That's all you ate? You didn't add fresh fruit or vegetables to your plan?
  10. Edit - sorry, found the answer in the FAQ.
  11. Thanks for the tip. These meals probably isn't too good for my B.P.
  12. For me, it depends on how hard I worked out or what exercises I did. After working out hard with weights, I love to have a protein shake, but if I did nothing but cardio (bike, ellipticle, & treadmill), then I would usually eat something - if I was hungry. That is the key. I work out in the evenings, and I'm trying to not eat after 8:30p - 9:00p.
