Weight Watchers Points Pedometer Plus
Advantages: Perfect for every individual
Disadvantages: Buttons can be pressed easily by accident
i have been a regular face at my local Weight watchers group every week. Since having my children i have struggled with my weight and trying to keep it off so Weight watchers seemed like the perfect idea.
As soon as i started Weight watchers i looked on the sales table to see what goodies they had and seen this little gadget however the price was a little steep for me at £17.99 each. To be honest i thought it was a little over priced for something i could pick up for £2 at asda or somewhere similar. What i didnt realise was there is alot more to this little perdometer than meets the eye.
Firstly lets tell you a little bit about Weight watchers.
Weight watchers was started by a house wife called Jean Nidetch over 40 years ago in New York. When she was put onto a medical diet by her hospital dietician she decided that the best way to contol her weight loss was to do it with her friends so after inviting them round and asking them if they would like to join her, weight watchers was born.
Weight watchers came to the uk 35 years ago and now there are 6000 meetings every week.
Weight watchers helps women lose weight through a point system diet. You can eat what you want aslong as you point the foods by using the weight watchers calculator. Not only do you get your daily and weekly prp points you also get your activity points too, which is where the perdometer comes in handy.
Right, now to the perdometer.
The perdometer has changed in the past year that i have been going to Weight watchers. I currently have the white and blue design however in December 2011 they changed it into the more sleeker and modern black design but it pretty much does the same thing.
It comes in a small box, with instructions inside with the perdometer itself. I also comes with a clip that you attach to the back of the product so you can secure it to your trousers, socks, t-shirt, pretty much anything you want to. You also get a neck tie incase you would rather hang it round your neck than attach it to your clothing.
Once you open the box and turn it on you simply follow the instructions to input your weight, height, age and step stride in. After they are all in the perdometer it will tell you how many steps you need to walk before you start earning towards your activity points. Now because everyone is different, this perdometer is ment to work for YOU, hense why you have to put in all the information. This is why it is different to any other perdometer on the market because it will tell you exactly how many steps you need to do and after 7 days it will let you look over all your steps and see how many activity points you have earned over the week so you can write them down in your trackers.
Once you have been weighed on your normal weigh in, the perdometer will reset itself so you can put your new weight in and it will recalculate your amount of steps you need to do again.
If you are thinking about your weight and want to know just how many steps you need to do in order to help towards your weight loss then i would recommend this to you. It is a little pricey but if you are lucky like i was i had a vouchure in one of my monthly subscription letters so i saved myself £2 there. I also won the raffle on that day too and won £9 so i didnt have to pay the full price for it.
Its great that i can moniter just how much i am walking per day and i know if i have to get my bum into gear and walk a little more on some days because it is right there on the screen.
Everytime you earn an activity point the perdometer will beep at you so you know when you earn your points and if your anything like me i get very happy when i hear that beep.
I give this a 4 out of 5. The only reason i havent given it full stars is because i have noticed that the buttons are easily caught whilst doing your daily duties. The new black design has been better than the blue and white design because the buttons are at the bottom on the black but at the top on the blue ones. I have learnt to attach mine to the outside of my sock, it doesnt tend to be caught as much giving you a much more accurate reading.
All in all its an excellent little gadget. With Weight watchers i have lost more weight that what i would have done on my own and i truely believe that it is partly down to this little gadget.
Summary: Great for you weight loss journey
