Fitbit Weirdness

Friday, June 20, 2014

Whenever I forget to wear my fitbit, I feel as though my day's walking didn't count! (smiling) Will I ever be able to live without counting my steps? I don't know. It gets to be part of the fun to see how many steps for the day. But if this little device ever goes away, I don't want to feel that walking is not beneficial without tracking. Know what I mean? I've become dependent on it to establish value to the activity when the activity alone has value.

Wishing all a happy day.

    I know exactly what you mean. every time I leave the fitbit at home - my 1st thought is to go home and get it. The second thought is I won't take any steps because they won't count. I then I have to remind myself, my body knows what steps I'm taking and it will count them. It's crazy...

I understand about feeling like you haven't done anything, if the steps are not counted, to where I can see them. The SPT has me spoiled. I know there have been a couple of times, when I have been without, and since I didn't see the account of my steps, I felt like it was all for nothing, because I do count my steps, and I believe I'll always count my steps, but that's just me! There's nothing wrong with counting, but I need to get out of the mindset that if my steps aren't counted, it's a wasted day.

Be blessed,

    I know exactly what you mean. I feel lost without my pedometer but don't feel it is a good idea to be dependent on it. I like to walk and the reason I do is because it makes me feel better, gives me more energy, keeps me mobile, helps my appetite. I feel silly caring about a number on a device when my main reasons for moving are really important.

    I don't have a fitbit yet so I don't count my steps. I get my fitness minutes from videos mostly. I am going to get one.

    emoticon That's what happens when we get attached. And, like you, I am attached to my fitbit One.

I'm thinking of buying another for a back up....LOL
