Weight Watchers' Activity Points (AP)

I got crazy on the treadmill a couple of weeks ago and wasn't able to use it again until last night. I walked for two 15 minute segments at 3.1 MPH.  That gave me 2 activity points and I also wear my WW pedometer except for when I'm on the treadmill and got 6115 steps which gave me another AP.  WW wants me to get at least 2 AP/day for now and work up to 4 - 6 APs a day because that's what's usually needed for maintenance and life time.  All of the terms will be explained as I get to them in my weight loss journey (WLJ).  I've already gotten 3 APs today and plan to get 1 more on the treadmill and have to account for my steps before I go to bed.

Weight Watchers Update

I went to my WW meeting last night and I had lost 2.4lbs this week.  That brings my total since recommitting on December 2, two days before they updated the program, to 3.8lbs.  Pretty close to 1lb/week.

I set my goal weight day as November 15 or what ever day of that week I happen to be weighing in.  That will be 50 weeks since recommitting, one for each pound I have to lose.  I would love to reach goal (105) before then, but we'll see.

Trying out the new Blogger interface

I'm trying of the new Blogger interface. It's new to me since, until last night, I hadn't posted in a little over 3 yearrs.  It will take me a little while to get used to the changes.

Phone Interview

The interview seemed to go well and the interviewer said that somebody would let me know in the next few days if I will move further along in the selection process. The interview was for a class starting in February. Good thing I have a severance package from the company that laid me off!

Alive and Well!

I am going to start posting again. A lot has happened in my life since the last time I posted.

I have moved out on my own, bought a house, gotten divorced, laid off and fat.

So, I have recommitted to Weight Watchers with Points Plus 2012, getting healthy and have applied for a job for which I have a telephone interview in 8 hours and 9 minutes.

I have found bunches of things I'm excited to share with you, but for now I'm going to bed so I'll be alert for my interview.

Oh, and I'm working on a new name for my blog.
