Finally found my fitbit after two weeks clipped to a pair of pants that I'm pretty sure went through the wash, making this its second journey to those parts. Have it plugged in to try to charge but am seeing no pulse.
I bought a Withings wifi scale with some Amazon credit that was burning a hole in my pocket. If anyone's considering getting one: it was slightly cheaper than the Fitbit scale, easy to set up via bluetooth, and the weight data shows up instantly on my Fitbit account. I did have to set up a Withings account and connect the two, but that was quick.
Well, I am weak-willed. That's the only excuse I can think of to pick up a FitBit Flex while I was buying a new bluetooth headset for my wife at Awesome Purchase. Honestly, I kept forgetting to move my One from clothing to clothing, especially to PJs first thing in the AM. Oh, well. Charge quickly little friend. We shall soon never part. :P
(vain post, sorry) Starting today, trying out the Flex instead of the One. Also, the Burning Man diet is awesome: You spend all day and all night dancing/cycling/walking, and your appetite is much reduced from the heat. I lost 4.1 pounds and 1.8% body fat in a week -- 269k steps, 120 miles, 33.9k calories burned.
Just got my 10lb weight loss badge!! I'm proud of myself because it only took me 4 weeks to accomplish the goal, and it's a pretty significant percentage of my total body weight. I feel great, and I can see so much more muscle. Loving my Fitbit for motivation.
I would attribute my success at becoming healthier, and losing weight, to my fitbit. I love it. The days I don't want to motivate myself to workout, I just think about how much it'll ruin my step average. It's a great tool, and all the motivation I need. Appreciating it more than normal lately.
Ever since Eric (yay!) sent me the Fitbit I've been getting into the habit of tracking my activity every day. It's addictive, and now that hubby has one we're really competing to make sure we get our steps in.
Lost my Fitbit on Saturday. I could tell it was still in the room because the ipad could sync. Finally found it by closing the bedroom door for quiet and setting a silent alarm every couple of minutes. I had folded it into a stack of laundry and put it away in the wardrobe. It took me about twenty minutes to track down where the soft "buzz buzz"
