In childhood and high school I was always a healthy weight. After graduating from college, my weight fluctuated (mostly in the up-direction). I got to an all time high of 158 in 2000, and joined weight watchers (the in-home version - I've always been private about my weight) and lost about 28 pounds.

I'm excited - I ordered a FitBit Charge HR. I think my favorite feature will be the silent alarm. I also would like a better handle on heart rate, but don't want to deal with the chest strap. Even if its off a bit (from what I've read) I'm okay with that - a general idea is what I'm after.
