Giveaway: Weight Watcher’s POINTS Pedometer

Weight Watchers POINTS Pedometer

As usual with my cleaning sprees, I don’t start out with the intention to declutter my shelves or shred a year’s worth of credit card statements. I start with a simple task, like sorting all the swag I scored at FitBloggin’, and then I find myself on a roll, until I’ve filled up a trash bag with unneeded items, including a broken garden gnome I realize I’m never going to superglue back together.

One item I got at FitBloggin’ is the Weight Watchers POINTS Pedometer. It’s a pretty sweet pedometer, by far the fanciest one I’ve owned. It calculates how many POINTS you’ve earned by walking, how far you’ve traveled, and even tells you the time. Sadly, however, I’m just not a pedometer person. I know I’m never going to use this thing, so I thought I’d give it away instead, hopefully to some Weight Watchers member who will truly enjoy it.

To enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this entry telling me where your favorite place to walk is by 11:59pm on Wednesday, March 31, 2010. A winner will be drawn randomly. By the way, the pedometer came in a box, but I threw it out to make more room in my suitcase, so you’ll just be receiving the pedometer and the instruction booklet. Updated at 1:08 pm: I’ll ship internationally, so anyone can enter. Just be aware that the pedometer uses inches and pounds for measurements.

In other news, the winner of the Dr. Biali book giveaway was Cara from Florida who has already accepted her prize.

And in other, other news, I’ve been experimenting with some new ad networks in my right sidebar lately. Please let me know if you see any objectionable ads (like those annoying flat belly ads I see everywhere), and if possible send a screenshot so I can better figure out which network served the ad. Thanks!

My favorite place to walk is on my treadmill because I can read my Kindle while I walk which makes it much less tedious. I think I walked every inch of our town a few years ago while training for the Breast Cancer 3-Day 60 mile walk so have lost interest in walking outdoors while at home.

Hey Jennette,

I’m not really entering the contest since I got one at Fitbloggin too, but I thought I would take just a minute to leave my favorite place to walk…

I park about half a mile from where I work. It forces me to get at least some exercise in during the day, and on the way back to the car after work, it gives me a nice little slice of time to just be by myself and unwind.

Talk soon!

Current favorite place to walk is the outer edge of our hayfield with Ratt, one of our many barn cats. He’s a little grey cat who for some unknown reason, has very little hair on his tail (hence the name Ratt). He’s the only one who’s brave enough to go all the way around the full 7.5 acre field with me. It’s especially cool in the morning when there’s still light mist on the edge of the woods, and the deer stand around watching us.

My absolutely favorite place to walk is along the beach in Capitola, California. Unfortunately, since I live in Texas, this doesn’t happen very often (but it will this summer – yay!). So my second place is a park near my house – it’s really pretty and there are always lots of cute dogs and kids to watch.

What a great giveaway! I use WW online and love the site, this pedometer would be great!

I live in DC, so my favorite place to walk is around the Tidal Basin. It’s about 2 miles the entire way around and is so beautiful — the monuments, the water, etc. Plus right now it’s cherry blossom season, so it’s like you’re walking under a canopy of flowers all the time.

Right now, my favorite place to walk would be ANYWHERE. I have not been able to walk since breaking my ankle 6 weeks ago, and I don’t expect to be able to even try for at least another 7 weeks. In the old days (pre-6 weeks ago), my favorite place to walk was probably on the walking path along the Hudson River. I live for the day when I can do that again; I’m shooting for sometime this summer. I wonder if that pedometer would calculate crutch hops!

My favorite place to walk is the 3-mile block starting at my house and ending at my house. Blocks in the country a very long. On this block are horses to see at four properties, lots and lots of flowers, fields, woods, birds, a well-manicured cemetery, and, if I walk early enough in the morning on the weekend, coffee and bacon smells eminating from several of the house along the route.

Unfortunately I no longer live is WI but when I think about my favorite place to walk that is the place that comes to mind. I will be in WI in May for a visit so will definately go there.

My absolute favorite place in the world to walk is the castle grounds at Blarney Castle in Ireland.

Unfortunately, I live 5,000 miles away from there, so it would be quite a trek just for a walk. So my second favorite is right in my country neighborhood because about a mile or so away, there is a pretty waterfall that I love to walk to. It’s a bit of a hike at some points, in terms of terrain, but I like to walk to that spot and listen to the sounds of the rushing water as I sit and rest for a few minutes. :-)

I live in a big city – Toronto – and my favourite place to walk is within the downtown core. I’m not exactly a nature lover, I find endless trees boring.

I’d love to win the pedometer – I’ve used WW fairly successfully for over 10 years now, with no major relapses.

(I didn’t mean to submit this twice, I don’t think it worked the first time I tried a couple of hours ago)

re: ads:
I am using google chrome and the Advertise here box is empty (not sure if it’s supposed to be) and in the text ad box the ads are in a column, all along the right side, with a column to the left of it as empty white space.
p.s. my favourite place to walk is along the Wasa Lake Trail, around Wasa Lake. I can just walk out the front door to get to it and it’s an 8km loop that takes me less than an hour and a half at the moment. The trail is paved and well maintained and fairly level, so you don’t need to be super fit to traverse it.

We are SO fortunate that our neighborhood in Toronto includes The Beach – a great old fashioned boardwalk along the shores of Lake Ontario, but still only moments from the heart of the city. In the sun, in the gloom, in the wind, or the drift og gently falling snow — a walk ( or run) along this path is always invigorating. As a WW member… I do it as often as I can to burn points – but also to re-centre.

My favortie place currently to walk is downtown Des Moines (Des Moines? hell yes!) away from the bus stops where one might find the occasional homeless person snoozing. So Des Moines itself isn’t huge (200.000 or so). But mixed in with the suburbs, it jumps to around 550,000 or so in population. Not huge, but not tiny. And we do like it when people wave when they fly over :D. But I digress.

It’s pretty safe, especially around the kickass art park and library, which is good since I usually walk around during my lunch break, usually around 9ish pm. The area generally has a good vibe.

Ok. I lied; my absolute most favorite place is the West End of London, where I spent the spring break of my sophomore year of college. I walked around several hours, happily got lost several times, but still managed to get to where I needed to go. However, that was sixteen years ago, and I can’t really afford to go back.

So, a mile or so circuit of downtown Des Moines it is. But it’s still really good. :D

This may sound so simple, but I love to walk in my neighborhood at dusk. I feel like I am able to talk to neighbors that I would normally not meet. Many of them are watering their lawns or working in the yard and even if it’s a simple “hello”, it makes me feel connected to those who live around me.
