Hear hear to Kayotic. That's a more reliable measure of what you're doing with your body.
And keep rocking it out! That's so great!

On the first question, I'd also go with the HRM, since it's tracking your HR and estimating the calorie burn from that, rather than just time and type of exercise (I'm assuming that's how the wi calculates calorie burn)

My celebration: I've hit my adult lowest weight. I now weigh what I did in high school when I was on swim team. I've never been a 'skinny Minnie', so ideally I have a few more pounds to go, but this is a major breakthrough!
Now the real goal....maintenance!

Well today I did workout #37 with MFC and did my physical challenge. I have lost 2% bf and my resting/after 2 min jumping jacks heart rates dropped 4 beats! Woohoo!!! So Maya really stepped up my aerobics and had me working at 68-80% range for most of it! It felt awesome!
My only concern is that MFC says I burned 200 less than my HRM. Which should I believe? lol
Run faster, run farther until you hit the wall of realization that you CAN do anything you put your mind to!
