It is very interesting to read what people have been saying. The biggest topic lately is WHERE DO YOU WEAR YOUR FITBIT? Alot of people say they wear the flex on their shoe laces or their ankle. Is this cheating? When I got my flex it said the non- dominant wrist is preferred. Do you really get more steps on ankle or shoe lace.

Don't Stop Till You Get Enough by Michael Jackson <BR> <BR> Then next person might put down... Stop In the Name of Love by The Supremes <BR> <BR> And so on and so forth. Let's have fun with this. <BR> <BR> <BR> Thu, 31 Oct 2013 16:01:29 EST LeaderBoard Points awards - Sept 10K http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=5065x1167x55089170 It's the last part of the month, which means it is time to announce Spark's top 25 Leader Board names on our team for fitness points logged into the fitness tracker during September. <BR> <em>345</em> <em>380</em> <BR> <BR> Each of these participants (that had a Spark Page) was awarded a team goodie for their efforts. <BR> <BR> GERMANIRISHGIRL 3,600 <BR> PAULLORAH 3,600 <BR> BABY_GIRL69 3,528 <BR> BAZNCAZ 3,480 <BR> ROCKRS 3,480 <BR> JANIEWWJD 3,480 <BR> TERRI77 3,480 <BR> NWLIFES...

I felt like such a loser and failure and lazy just because the pedometers I used - top of the line Omron's-did not track all the steps I was taking. <BR> <BR> I took a risk and purchased a FitBit One ($99) kerchunk! reading that it was a totally different fitness tech toy that was more accurate, etc., etc. How many times have I been disappointed in fitness toys?
