New person record achieved: 60k+ on Fitbit, and I've got an hour-plus to add on!

Side note: One benefit, I believe, was beating Stephen Mack's personal record too. I'm petty like that. - Louis Gray
Grats! 10 hours of steps! Impressive. How do your feet feel? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I was wearing my Teva sandals for the first 43,000, so I have some red/blistering on the arches where the straps come in contact with the skin, but otherwise, no problems. I switched to regular socks/shoes for the last 18,000 when I left the house around 8 and broke through my old record. - Louis Gray
I think 100k is achievable, and this proves it. It just takes 16 hours of solid work, which allows for 8 hours of flex. We should make it a charity thing and get it done. - Louis Gray
Sixteen hours doing two steps per second? That would be most impressive. - Bruce Lewis
Bruce, do you have access to the overall Fitbit data? What's the record for most steps taken in a day? - Stephen Mack
If you do a public event with witnesses who can say you were really taking steps, then that would truly be the record. Getting a maximum from the data would probably turn out to be something like https://twitter.com/marcamo... - Bruce Lewis
Yeah, I guess there's no way to distinguish the real steps versus someone, say, leaving it in front of a fan all day. - Stephen Mack
I once did three flights of stairs by pacing back and forth in the elevator. I didn't try it again, so I don't know if it was a fluke. - Betsy
That wasn't a fluke -- it would happen every time: http://help.fitbit.com/article... - Bruce Lewis
I thought so. For the record, when I go on my stair-climbing binges (it's been a while), I'm not pacing in an elevator. - Betsy
My 60k were real. Do my 6 year olds count as witnesses? - Louis Gray
Louis, only if a FriendFeeder who has met them vouches for their honesty. - Bruce Lewis
His six year olds seem very honest to me! - Stephen Mack
OK, it's official. - Bruce Lewis

My weekly average has gone up considerably since my wife started using her Fitbit too.

Kind of frustrated that Fitbit is not properly logging sleep. It's recording the time from when I switch on the sleep clock to when I switch it off in the morning and saying I slept the whole time, even though it shows constant restlessness throughout the night. I hope they get that sorted soon.
Fitbit is still a relatively small company, so there aren't a lot of layers between customer service and engineering. Try opening a case at https://help.fitbit.com/ and they can probably get your feedback to the right people. - Bruce Lewis
it's happening to me too - starting the last week or so - ~Courtney F
I just sent them an email. - vicster: full-bodied

Hi. - Louis Gray

I haven't heard anything yet, Bruce. - vicster: full-bodied
And now I think the stair climbing counter has gone haywire. It says I climbed 31 floors today but I don't remember taking a lot of stairs or climbing the higher hills near my office. - vicster: full-bodied
Sometimes the stairs are confused for me when the barometric pressure goes crazy. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
I found a FAQ page: http://help.fitbit.com/article... Restlessness isn't counted as awake time. If you probably were awake there are instructions on that page for changing the sensitivity setting. - Bruce Lewis
The issue is that the more sensitive setting is no longer registering properly on the Dashboard. You have to turn it off and back on for each day for it to reflect the time actually asleep. - ~Courtney F
Vicster, can you DM me the case number for your email? I know people in Customer Service and can get it escalated. - Bruce Lewis
Thanks, Bruce. It seems to be working again. I did get an email over the weekend from them saying that they have fixed the issue. I just got distracted every time I started to come back to this thread to update. :-) - vicster: full-bodied

I need to get out of my chair and make coffee but I need coffee to get out of my chair.
Once upon a time, a big weekend would have meant very late nights and dancing. Now a big weekend is having my FIL visit, taking Josiah to a couple of birthday parties, working, and going out to dinner. I swear I'm more tired from this kind of big weekend than the previous kind.

Engaged Couple Loses a Combined 133 Pounds Before the Wedding - Neatorama
"Matt Bradley, 23, a chef from Warwickshire, England, asked his girlfriend Hannah to marry him. Hannah accepted, and the couple began to dream of their life together. When they visualized their future, Matt and Hannah realized that part of the picture included the two of them being fit and healthy. At the time, Matt weighed 258, and Hannah was overweight as well.  Together, the couple began carefully planning their meals, incorporating more servings of vegetables. Matt, who had become inactive in recent years, took up running, eventually working up to a 10K.  By the time their wedding date arrived, Matt had lost 92 pounds, and Hannah had dropped 41. Not only did they look stunning on their special day, but they worked together to achieve a goal that didn't come easily. It looks like Matt and Hannah have a great start on the teamwork required for a happy marriage." - Me from Bookmarklet
If they can survive that process together, staying married will be a breeze! :) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson

Fitbit finally charged up after a long lapse. Gained weight whilst not tracking, ugh. I have a dress I need to fit into in four weeks and I can't quite do the zip up. Let's do this thing!

So the Apple Watch has a clock app. Interesting. Shouldn't it have a watch app?

My mom, 4 and a half years cancer free. At each successive checkup, I look forward to, rather than dread, hearing the results. Each time, I am so grateful for the doctors, nurses, and medical staff she has worked with along the way, especially the specialist she worked with at Virginia Mason. Hasn't been easy, but so worth it <3
And now, for a celebratory dinner with her and my dad! - Jennifer Dittrich

Last friday I taped an iPhone to my head and ran around Paris capturing the most famous sights in a single (somewhat shaky) shot. Here's the video: http://vimeo.com/12906858

*spot reserved for a later comment* - Micah from iPhone
Now we know what that 94 minute video was. :) - NOT THE CRICKET
that explain other FF posts, looking for tapes and where can one upload large video files ;-). - Tzury Bar Yochay
Yeah, I never did get the duct tape though, so I had to use clear packaging tape instead (with a sock stuffed between the iPhone and my hat to get the correctish angle). - Paul Buchheit
Patent it NOW - Josh Haley
Well, this is just genius! - Eric - Poppa Large
When you said you ran you weren't speaking metaphorically. - Eric - Poppa Large
Very Cool Paul! - Jeff P. Henderson
great and inspiring - Nenko Ivanov
this was perfect, I opened up my Paris map and followed you :) - İpek Aral
I'm surprised you were able to follow. I didn't have a map (my iPhone was taped to my head!) so I made a number of wrong turns, though the high-level route was pretty basic. - Paul Buchheit
Saw the vimeo on your stream and watched a little of it. Great stuff! Cool to see new iphone vid quality. (er 3gs? quality, hmm) Oh yeah, and enjoy Paris! - Jay
It's actually a 3GS, not an iphone 4. - Paul Buchheit
I think I might tape a photo of Paul with an iPhone taped to his head to my head because I want to get arrested for being a menace. - Akiva
You can fit an iPad on my forehead. - Josh Haley
Ahhh this explains the "ducktape in Paris" stuff LOL :D (that picture is full of geeky win!) - Susan Beebe
@Paul just curious how much battery did you have left after you were done recording? - BRҰANSAҰS
Something like 22%, as I recall. I had put the phone in airplane mode to reduce wireless consumption and also because I'm concerned that an incoming call would stop the video or something. - Paul Buchheit
Not bad. I guess you could get at least 2 hours of recording on one charge. - BRҰANSAҰS from BuddyFeed
Nice idea, OP - LANjackal
this is definitely on the list of 'quirkiest things ever done with an iPhone'. :-) - Olivia Lovag
this is so romantic - τorƍue
awesome, you just needed a gun and it would make a cool REAL-time FPS :) - Emil Kirichev
oh thanks you soo much!!! I love it! - Bojan Babic

I hope this isn't the start of a "people walk around cities w/smartphones taped to their hats" trend. - rönin
I hope it is - Mo Kargas
If so, it'll just be transitional until smartphones are replaced by glasses-phones. Or smart glasses. Do we have an official name for those yet? - Andrew C (✔)
Iphone taped to the forehead, what a nice way to show #IamAmerican abroad :) - непростые коротышки

Today, Kristine and I did an 8 mile loop hike in Cool, CA. It's in El Dorado County. This is what Fitbit says it looks like. Lots of ups and downs!

9:40 am and already above 8k. Today's going to be an easy one.

Side benefit to working from home: I can pad my Fitbit stats by walking around during conference calls without annoying anyone (besides myself).

Hmm. How high should I get this tonight? 30k? 35k? 40k?

First day of school meant I could walk the kids there (and return home). Then I walked to the Google shuttle, walked a bit to lunch (and back), and then, on a lark, I decided to time walking the Steven's Creek Trail home from Google. It took one hour and forty minutes to do a bit over 7 miles. - Louis Gray
So if I want to get home at 5, I just have to leave work at 3:20. :) - Louis Gray
Not too worried, Anna. - Louis Gray
33,358. - Louis Gray
Wow. How are your feet today? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
All is well. I've broken 50k twice, so 33k is fine. Over my 12k goal today too. - Louis Gray
