The Fit Bit Ultra/120 Days Not Smoking

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Well I am about to buy me a present for doing such a great job and hit my 120 days today emoticon emoticon emoticon
If I seem excited I am emoticon living with a smoker is a hard job emoticon so I am about to buy me something emoticon
I have been talking with a emoticon about the Fit Bit and would like any other feed back I can get on this.
I want the one that does everything and the sleep. I have looked in the SP store, Amazon and want to know your opinions.
Plus any tips or suggestions from anyone that has one I would so appreciated it before I make my purchase.
I emoticon think there is an advantage if I purchase through SP.
My time is so limited and I think this would help me save a lot of time I spend tracking everything. emoticon love my award for emoticon

Hope all my sweet emoticon 's are enjoying the season, the crispness in the air and working hard to meet our goals. Just remember to pamper yourself too emoticon

Lots of emoticon

You deserve to treat yourself! I am also looking into the fitbit. However, it doesn't look to me the spark version does all we both seem to be looking for. I would definitely like the sleep counter. I would be interested in learning what you find.

You are doing so great. Keep up the good work.
I don't have any opinion on the Fitbit. Let us know what you decide to get.

    Great work!!!

You were smart to get the fitbit ONE which is sweat & water resistant. The ultra can die mid-workout due to sweat. Despite that, I absolutely love my fitbit and can't wait for the one to show up on my doorstep.

    Congratulations!! When I quit smoking in 2007 my husband was still smoking in our house. It was VERY difficult, probably the hardest thing I've ever done so I can toatlly empathize with you. I would definitely celebrate each milestone and not look back. I'm not familiar with the Fitbit so can't offer any suggestions on that but I hope you enjoy.

    I have a fitbit and LOVE IT! Got mine from ebay before SP linked up with them. Have linked it here and on fb. I am so glad I bought it. Small and easy to use. Good luck!

    emoticon so much everybody for taking time out of your day and stopping by, you are all emoticon well I ordered the Fit Bit One did a pre-order they say it will not be shipped till the first week of November. emoticon I can't wait and November really is not that far away. The Ultra was nice but with the One its blue tooth and has a USB doggles so more convenient for me than having the base.
So I will wait emoticon It's tough when you want something right now, but I have my pedometer until then. I will write a blog after I have had it for a week and figured it all out. So exciting emoticon emoticon Hope all my emoticon s has a Fabulous week ahead. emoticon

    Congrats AGAIN! This is a wonderful accomplishment & treating yourself is a great way to celebrate your freedom! My 1st gift to myself was a Kindle. Love it!

Can't help you with the FitBit - don't have one but I've heard that some wouldn't be without the FitBit. I use the Omron pedometer to make sure I move all day long. It does keep track of cardio minutes for me (it starts tracking after you've been moving for a minimum of 10 minutes without rest). However, if you're a runner, it doesn't keep track of the mileage accurately unless you always go in to the set up to change the stride length. The best thing is I can download the information to a program on my desktop.

    emoticon on your 120 days, excellent job with another smoker around. That in its self is a bit harder to make that quit. emoticon Been checking into the FitBit myself, if you find out anything give a shout.

Hugs emoticon

    emoticon on quitting smoking. I am struggling with that habit right now. I am down to less than a pack a day, but haven't made it yet to completely cold turkey.

I have a fitbit Ultra, that I bought in June 2012 and at that time they only had 2 choices. I bought the Ultra (99.00) to track my sleep. I really wanted to know if I was sleeping or not, between the hot flashes and night sweats, I felt like I wasn't sleeping at all. I have read that Amazon is offering the Ultra for less than 99.00. My question is: is Fitbit replacing the Ultra with the One? You might call customer service and ask that question.
I love my fitbit and wear it on my waistband everyday and have not had any issues with it coming off.
You also need to check out and join the Fitbit Users Unite team on SP. It has a lot of information. Then you can join the SP Fitbit challenge starting in November.

    Congratulatons on your 120 days of not smoking. This is the hardest thing I ever did was to 'quit smoking' and that was in 2001. But, I did it and so will you. Now I look at people lighting us and gag! Still the urge is there after all these years - but with the cost and the health issues it causes, I will never go back. Way to go!!! LI sends you a wave...

    emoticon on your success in giving up smoking!!! I know it isn't easy, I quit over 10 years ago. It is a great feeling, being an ex smoker, isn't it? I can't give any advise on the Fitbit, as I don't have one..... Yet emoticon but, I did want to congratulate you on a job emoticon emoticon
