After hearing a good friend's testimonial while at a mutual friend's wedding this past weekend, I've tentatively decided to get myself a Fitbit. It's kind of pricey at $100, but I can afford it, and if it will help me be more accountable and provide more motivation to get moving, I think it will be well worth it. I'm trying to make deals with myself this summer so I can make the most of my time away from work and take some weight off as well. It would be so incredibly satisfying to go back to school a size or two smaller than I am now. I just need that major kick in the pants to get going.

So, unless I hear outrageously awful things about it, or get wind of an even better/cheaper product (that's still wireless, tracks sleep, and allows friendly rivalry via websites), I think I'll be ordering one by Friday.

    You will love the Fitbit. I like that it tells me how many calories I can actually consume and still lose weight, as long as I track correctly, accurately and honestly. I set mine to give me a 1000 calorie deficit a day which is the hardest and I have gotten great results as you can see my tracker. If you don't do too much in a day you are not given very many calories to consume, but I never eat less than 1200. It has made me very active and love to see the rewards you can earn by climbing stairs or hills, the number of steps you walk and the flower grow if you have been really active. Have fun with it!

    I wish that I had ordered one when I first started my journey. I can't begin to figure what I have spent on the cheap pedometers (and some not so cheap)! The Fit Bit does so much more. You deserve a reward, don't you?
