Spark Activity Tracker on the way!

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Big moves lately....

This past month, I have had consistent effort to getting back on track. So, I'm proud to say that after shamefully bloating up to 194 lbs again (never thought I would get above 190 again, but I did), over the past 4 wks, I'm back to 184 :)

Working nights and odd hours helps too... I get nauseated when I work weird hours, so I eat less.

Part of the loss may be thanks to my new scale. I think my old scale weighed me a few lbs higher than other scales... but I'll take it. My old scale finally broke for good. It was a digital scale I've had for about 4-5yrs, and it would no longer weigh me- it suddenly was just roaming on numbers anywhere from 188-243 lbs... never settling on a number. Replaced the battery, but that's didn't help. So I got a new scale. It's soooooo much better. I even tested it a few times by weighing my self over and over and then with holding a 3lb weight. I must say I was impressed with it's accuracy.

And then I talked my husband into letting me buy the Spark Activity Tracker! I have a BodyMedia fit armband... but lately I've been having more skin reactions to the metal on it- making my arm itchy and red where the round metal sensors are. And to be honest, I really would prefer something that I can wear in a more concealed fashion. I leave off the arm band if it will obviously show for work and going out, so there's time when I wear it alot- like months where I'm working in a capacity where I mostly wear scrubs, but I leave it off when I go out and my arms aren't covered or when I'm not wearing scrubs at work. There were mixed reviews of the SP tracker on Amazon, but I really hope I will like it. We shall see....

Has anybody used it yet?

    I am debating getting the SP tracker. I don't have anything right now, but the reviews are mixed at this point. I might wait and ask for it for my birthday in March if the reviews are good at that point.

    Good job getting back down to the 180s!

    I am also curious to see how it works out for you. I've been wanting to buy one for awhile, and I would love to know how SP's version works. Hope it's a good fit for you!

    So happy for your success! I am curious on your thoughts of the Spark Activity Tracker, after you have used it for awhile. I'm trying to decide if I would like it or not. I hope you continue to have success! emoticon emoticon
