Apparently, a goal of 5000 steps is too much for me to handle on a regular basis. My feet are feeling a cumulative effect and are killing me. Plantar fasciitis sucks. :(
:( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
:-( Is swimming better? - Bruce Lewis
Probably, but I live in an apartment building that doesn't have a pool. - April Russo
Stretch a lot. I have intermittent plantar fasciitis, and I'm experimenting with different insoles to help. Some days are better than others, but don't give up. I'm amazed at how 10k days are normal to me, and when I started a year and a half ago, 3-4k days were more my usual. - Holly's favorite Anna
Yep, move up incrementally. I've been dealing with plantar fasciitis to some degree since i moved here 2 1/2 years ago. When I got the Fitbit, I was at 3-4K regularly, and now 15K is my regular - Katie
Mine is chronic, hit me early in life, as a teen. Took me years to even get a doctor to take me seriously and not try to blame it on "high heels" that I don't even wear (or something else just as stupid). - April Russo
I've never been diagnosed, but suspect I have that problem too. I used Rock Tape when I'm doing a training walk and that helps a lot. Found myself wishing I'd brought a roll to Vegas. - J. Marie B

That feeling when you check your stats and realize you left your Fitbit at home.
Boo. :( - Jenny H. from Android
And I forgot to grab it when I went home at lunch. So I installed Moves to track something of the rest of my day, including the walk planned for this evening, since I won't have time to run home first. - Holly's favorite Anna

If you do 50 squats right now, you'll burn ~20 calories. It all adds up. #keepgoing

What's your motivation to work out today? #keepgoing

My Fitbit just took an unintended bath. I spilled on myself, so I through my shorts in the wash and completely forgot that the fitbit had been in my pocket until they had been underwater for about 4 or 5 minutes. It seems to be working fine, but it's hanging out in a bag of rice just to be sure.
Of course, I didn't stuff the bag with rice because I wanted to still be able to put it in my pocket since it's working, but there's rice. - Katy S
I'm only guessing, but I think the silicone case protected it a bit for that brief period of time. - Katy S
Now you are ready to toss rice if you happen upon a surprise wedding. win/win - Janet
Are they waterproof? I've worn mine in the shower. - Melly
Did you exercise in the shower, Melly? #iam12 - Uli
Haha! - Melly
The one is water resistant but not water proof. It really shouldn't be submerged. - Katy S from iPhone
The Flex is waterproof, but it doesn't have an altimeter. It's hard to make a device waterproof if it has an altimeter like the Fitbit One. - Bruce Lewis
will the Flex track my lap swimming? - Laura Norvig
Flex won't track lap swimming, but you can log the activity on - Bruce Lewis
Walking in place in the bathroom to hit my minimum steps. :-/
I I used to walk in place while I washed the dishes! - Jenny H. from Android
I pace while eating lunch and walk laps around my apartment building at around 10 PM, if I haven't hit my minimum by then. (it's about 100 steps to go completely around it) On hot days I head for the supermarket around the corner and just go up & down the aisles. - April Russo

Congratulations on another week down! How will you spend your second summer weekend? #FitbitFriday

What happens when you stop sitting for an entire month? Spoiler: you lose 5 pounds and gain muscle.
Fitbit Fans
Commit to doing something today that you wish you did every day. #keepmoving
Two weeks in and I've lost 1.8kg/3lbs 15oz. Mostly just by tracking food and being more aware of my activity level. Still not really exercising, but it's a start :o)
Being aware of your activity level might be more helpful than exercise: - Bruce Lewis
Awesome, Melly! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

David Sedaris: "I look back on the days I averaged only 30K steps, and think, Honestly, how lazy can you get?"
Laura Norvig anyone using Fitt yet? In other news, I just ordered a Flex. Time to get back in the saddle ...
Fitt seems like a fun idea. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

After struggling big time to get my jeans on yesterday morning... Josh bought us an Aria scale yesterday (planned purchase from ages ago but they didn't have white at the time and Josh is picky!), I've joined myfitnesspal, and charged up my FitBit.
Current stats - weight = 71.8kg/158lbs; body fat percentage = 38.8% (scary!) - Melly
I need to take this slowly, so right now I just want to track what I'm eating and try and get my steps up a bit. I'll weigh in and re-evaluate every Friday! - Melly
I weigh as much as I did when I was heavily pregnant... and only a kg less than my husband, who is almost a foot taller than me :o/ - Melly
Good for you! For the few days I was tracking my breakfast, I didn't snack all day. But the last few days I've slipped up big time. We can do it! - Yvonne from FFHound!
" only a kg less than my husband." I read that "only a keg less than my husband" and that didn't sound like a bad thing. :-) - Betsy
Last night I talked to a friend I hadn't seen in a couple of years. He lost 50 pounds by watching his step count and logging food. He didn't use the Aria. I'm interested in Aria success stories. - Bruce Lewis
Did he always do 10k every day? Or did he have a different goal? Being forced to log food is such a huge eye opener for me. Going out is possibly the worst idea EVER. - Miriella
He's not on FriendFeed. He tells me, "I tried to nail the stair climbing goal every day, but maybe reached it half the time. I embarrassingly rarely hit the steps goal at all. I almost always hit the caloric intake goal and religiously recorded everything I ate on the FitBit app on my Iphone. " - Bruce Lewis
Thanks for the info - it's good to know! I run up and down the stairs in my house when I need to hit the floors goal...and some nights I've noticed they won't register unless I go aaallll the way up (three flights) and all the way down. (I try to just go up and down one flight...but then I get forced to go up three to trigger the thing to count floors) - Miriella
Melly, I am right there with you - keep buying bigger pants :( I think I'm going to have to get another Fitbit (first one had a bad date with a washing machine) - Laura Norvig
Yeah, I've bought bigger pants two years in a row, this time I was like.... NOPE. - Melly
