Are you using the Activelink? I just got mine on Saturday so I'm still in the assessment phase. It's so much fun to plug in and see results. I can't wait to see actual numbers!

Hmmmm, no, I don't even know what that is!

Really? I figured if it was out in my neck of the woods it would be available everywhere!

It is an activity monitor (sort of like a pedometer, but not really) that you wear and it measures ALL activity you do throughout the day. It's even waterproof. It has a USB plug in and you connect it to your computer to get your results. It will tell you how many activity points you earned and will upload that information into your eTools tracker. You first go through an assessment phase where you wear it for seven days and go about your normal routine. After that first week, it takes your info and sets a daily goal of activity points and monitors your progress toward that goal throughout the day. It also sets challenges for you as you go along.

I just got mine Saturday so I'm still in the assessment phase. I can't wait to see what my goal is and get started on beating that!

It costs $39.99, plus you have to pay a $5 monthly subscription fee in addition to your regular WW fee.

Oh, that's pretty cool. I have used one of those in the past - the company I used to work for had a fitness program that utilized that tool. It's interesting!

I'll check it out - sounds like something I would like to use to track. I am all about the tracking! Love the online tools WW has.

Never heard of it. I'll have to ask my leader about it on Sunday.

Weighed in today and gained .2 which is nothing and I happy with that. It's water weight. I need to drink more fluids.

That really is nothing. It will come off. I was up .6 yesterday, but I ate out several times and had Mexican food for a coworkers birthday the day before weigh in. I wasn't thrilled, but not surprised. I am more motivated this week to eat better. I've been straying from fresh foods and eating more prepackaged, low point stuff. Not good!

LOL I ate very badly yesterday and this morning had gained a pound! Not stressed about it at all though because I had LOST two pounds this week anyway. I think I can get at least 1/2 a pound of that off by Tuesday's meeting.

NO WORRIES! I GOT DIS!

I ate badly today. Two pieces of homemade cake for desert and 3 homemade biscuits for breakfast. Meh I don't feel guilty it's the first time I've pigged out in almost three weeks, and I did it because my mom came over and brought the biscuits over--she hardly makes them so I took advantage. I know I may pay for it slightly tomorrow morning when I wake up, but I'm going right back to my routine and it will probably be another couple of weeks or so before I indulge again. No guilt though. I'm satisfied.
