    Hi good luck ;)
    we can earn acivity points for exercise we do But we have to if dine a certain amount if steps before we can have the AP
    I have a ww pedometer plus i don't use it now but last month I was 15.7 stones 5ft 2 and female and 40 the pedometer said I had to do 4486 steps to be in the healthy range a day before I could earn AP I did approx 15000 steps a day and it worked out I earnt 5 AP for that I do 30 min treadmill 30 min wiivjust dance dint drive and have 3 kidds so that's how a ww pedometer plus helped me understand how many I was earning. Other than that there is a guide that will show you how to work it out re effort we put in on exercise. I personally never used my AP as I still have 5 stone to lose , have lost 2 st 9 but people make their own decisions wheather to use them depending in how many points we can have , when I lose another 3-4 stone I will prob use some but not all xx

    It goes on level of activity, your weight and time not cals. The wii fit isnt acurate enough and i always find it to be a low activity! 30min of Yoga on there for me is 1pt

    Hi hun you ok?? You have your weigh in?
    I dont think you get much for 200 cals but I dont know how to work that out I used to go by my pedometer which was actually very spot on as I checked it step wise,best if you go by the chart on the ww cardboard exercise activity in moderation wise.It does take alot to earn AP as I sweat like alot on the treadmill for 30 mins to get 2 AP.
    Yes its my 21st weigh in tomorrow lol fingers toes legs arms eyes and everything crossed ;) xx
