I got a question on this entry:

Have you heard anything about the new flex points system? I read that you can now personalize your daily points, so rather than base your daily points just on your current weight, a variety of factors are considered.

Also, they say they now have 4 levels of exercise for calculating activity points. You once had the formulae for activity points here, do you by chance have the new formulae?


They did change the points calculation a little bit. What changes they did make are very minor and won’t affect you unless you’re male or an aerobics instructor. Just go with the points that they listed on their patent. You can find out more information here:

The activity points seem the same. The most important thing is to start moving every day and slowly work up in intensity.

Best of luck,
