    Hi all,

    I started this on the weight watchers page, but will add it here too.

    The challenge, ultiamtely, is to build up to 10,000 steps a day, however, as this has just started - I thought getting to the 'healthy' stage on the weight watchers pedometers would be a better start.

    'healthy' is about 6,500 steps, and after that the pedometer starts counting points that you can use as food points.

    I'll add mine to these threads - and welcome any one else (from any diet) to do the same, and maybe we can together start increasing our activity, gently, healthily, and more important - sustainably!

    good luck all :)

    Well I did great yesterday...
    15144 steps, which equates to 6.57 miles and 4.5 APs
    Yay !!!!
    And this morning, I parked the car at the end of the road when doing the nursery run and made the kids walk the rest of the way... which means I get to do it twice ...
    Dragged the boys out for a walk with the doggie last night which helped boost my total.. and I am planning on going to the gym after work - Bag is already packed and in the car !!

    Good luck to everyone today...

    I'm at work, my instructions are at home... does anyone know how to change their weight on the Pedometer to reflect their weekly loss ?

    Thanks

    I think everyone on here at the moment is a WeightWatchers member and they sell the WW pedometer at our weekly meetings.. what diet are you following ?

    i'm just calorie counting at the mo - i dont reckon i'll need a fancy one with calories and what not, and certainly not points. i dont reckon if i want to 'earn' calories, as it'll just drop off me a bit quicker that way :) can i still join in the walking challenge tho?

    i think i'll look up some reviews on't'interweb.

    having an office job makes me really aware of how little i move during the day. i'm going to make a concerted effort to walk up and down the stairs a bit more and go for a walk on my lunch break and after my dinner in the evening.

    will do a test day to see how many steps i do normally, then try to increase it. i think that's the way forward. will have to drag the oh off the sofa to come for a stroll with me of an evening!

    press the menu button till you get to the weight, then hold down the enter button for about 5 seconds, the current weight entered will start flashing, just use the up and down button to change the weight, and press enter again when done.

    :O)

    Just realised why you all seem to do alot more steps than me ... before healthy comes up...

    I think the pedometer must decide on the healthy level not only on number of steps but also according to your weight . Mine says healthy around 3000 steps

    Stuck at work at the moment and feeling cr*p... thinking of skipping lunch and bunking off home to bed

    Can always take the doggie out with the boys again later... although - just looks out of window - it's now throwing it down so unless that stops I won't be going anywhere...:cry::cry:
