It finally arrived yesterday!!! Excited like a kid at Christmas. Of course, it seemed to take forever to charge (about an hour) and setup my account online (5 mins). And then...wait for it....wait for it...uhm, now what????
Ok. So, the arrival of my FitBit was anti-climatic. I wanted it to do something, anything.
But, I crawled into bed (wearing it on the wristband provided in the box) and put it in sleep mode.
Woke up this am with calories burned! Gotta love that! :-)
I wore it all day and at 8:30 pm tonight, I've already burned more calories (2626) than SP says I will burn for the entire day including my afternoon run (2418).
Clearly, one day's data isn't enough to conclude anything, but now I'm wondering if I am not eating enough at 1500-ish calories a day! I'm a number cruncher by day. I'll keep track of info for a few weeks and review it all again to see if there are any trends. I am hoping, praying that I have the missing piece of my puzzle: eat a little more so my body isn't in starvation mode.
Oh-and I didn't even notice that I was wearing it all day. I feel like it may bother me on the waistband of my pants until I am below 200lbs and pants are more comfortable. So, I stuffed it in my bra. It's so small, I couldn't even feel it. The downside to "wearing" it there is not being able to check it easily. I had to let it sync to the website and view the website for stats. Very gratifying to see the "activity #" and the steps taken. I know I have a desk job, but I thought that I was a little more active than what FitBit showed. I purposely tried to be "normal" today so I could get a full day of baseline activity from FitBit. Game on tomorrow to get those numbers up, up, up!
Anyone else with a FitBit???
