It's very easy to write the blogs about progress or happy little gadgets like the Fitbit; it is NOT very easy to write about my backslides. However, before I continue, four years into this process, I am not as devastated as I once was when this... Read more

One Fitbit Week Equals 4 Badges

Tuesday, February 05, 2013      20 comments

This Fitbit was the most fun b'day gift I got for myself. In the first week of use, I've earned 4 badges - just by doing what I normally do. It's fun and helpful in knowing what I'm doing and how it translates to miles and calories. I resiste... Read more

...don't watch the Super Bowl game. If you do, enjoy! I enjoy empty freeways and a virtual ghost town to travel through with no crowds whatsoever since everyone else is watching the game. Have a fun day.... Read more

Two Fitbit Missteps

Saturday, February 02, 2013      18 comments

Okay, two things that I've discovered about Fitbit: -I thought it was reading the pedalling I was doing on the exercise bike, but last night I discovered that it's not. Disappointing since I do a lot of that. -I noticed that the numbe... Read more

Fitbit Almost Went into The Wash

Friday, February 01, 2013      19 comments

It's great that the Fitbit is so non-obtrusive, but the downside is that it's easy to forget it's there. I was falling asleep last night when I suddenly realized that I'd put my bra into the hamper to be washed today. I had to spring out of be... Read more

Comical Fitbit Thoughts

Wednesday, January 30, 2013      22 comments

So here I am in, like, the 4th day of using this cool new Fitbit. And I caught myself with some thoughts that, if left unattended, could be absurd and ridiculous. 1. I forgot to put my Fitbit on, so there's no sense walking since it won't... Read more

"You've gotta try Nutella," she said.

Tuesday, January 29, 2013      24 comments

I walked into my fave little grocery store (fresh and easy) to find strawberries on sale. My store friend (you know how you make friends by shopping regularly at a place) grabbed my arm and excitedly advised, "oooooh, you've just gotta try Nute... Read more

Enjoying the New Fitbit

Monday, January 28, 2013      19 comments

Lest I mislead you with my last blog about being confused about my first day of Fitbit, let me clarify. As a non-tech person, it is VERY easy to set up. However, I just had a couple more "steps" to do in the set-up phase that I had missed. No... Read more

Confused after 1st Fitbit Day

Sunday, January 27, 2013      15 comments

What was disappointing was that, upon checking the Fitbit site and having used the dongle, only calories showed up. Not number of steps or miles. Why? I don't know. I was looking forward to a grand total. It has already reset, so I can'... Read more

I received my new pink Fitbit Zip late yesterday afternoon. Easy to set up, I was surprised at how small it is, yet how much it can calculate! Even with the few hours I had it on in the house, it was amazing how many steps I took! Too bad it ... Read more

Changes During My Time w/ SP

Friday, January 25, 2013      18 comments

I tracked my package and Fitbit is due to arrive today. So, if I can set it up tonight, I'll start using it tomorrow. Usually my mail arrives late afternoon. Since this is my SP anniversary week, I've pondered what has changed over these ... Read more

Belt Caper Irony & Misc. Thoughts

Thursday, January 24, 2013      11 comments

Before 6 years ago, I had the luxury of never thinking about food and weight gain. I had years of collections of belts - all kinds, styles, etc. A belt diva. During this past 6 years, I gave them all away with other things to charity and figu... Read more
