Welcome fellow gadget lover! I adore gadgets! The fitbit one is my newest one, but it looks like since it does its thing wirelessly and talks to both my computer and my ipad, its here to stay! My next gadget will be the scale (aria), but not worried too much about the scale until I get my eating and moving up to a good level. Great work on your healthy changes!

I haven't tried anything but the FitBit. After using it, I don't want to either.

Sielke - that is an awesome fitness regime.

If you do what you always do, you will get what you always get. To get something different you have to do what you never did.

I just lost my FitBit and dusted off my Active Link. I bought a lanyard: something similar to this at at Walmart /www.walmart.com/ip/Advantus-Breast-
Ca
ncer-Awareness-Lanyard-White-Pink-BoR>x-of-10/17771141
and just wear it around my neck. I think I probably loose maybe 1 point a day, because wearing it on the hip registered more points, but the clip always falls off.

emoticon I love my fit bit. I got a body Media but would not pay for a monthly monitoring fee and also loved fit bits customer service more.

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

Good for you. I started with a WW ActiveLink tracker, but it was not very motivating, and the feed back from the tracker itself was simply 1-4 lights indicating points earned, and the computer display showing minutes of activity was not helpful. I lost it, Philips/ActiveLink customer service turned out to be a nightmare, and losing it turned out to be the best thing that every happened to me because I bought a Fitbit One. Fitbit is so motivating because if I only have a few more steps to go to a specific goal, I make sure I do it. I do the same with floors, distance, etc. I just love it. Each day I try to do better than the day before. I only had 15 pounds more to lose and was at a standstill, but now I am losing about 1 per week, and am enjoying being active thanks to Fitbit One!

I have tried numerous fitness trackers. (Ok, yes, I am a gadget freak). Polar FA20, Bodymedia, Scosche Rhythm, and MIO. Of them all, the Fitbit One is easiest to use, easiest to sync, least obtrusive, and provides all the data desired. Plus, it syncs with the most apps. I am definitely a fan.

BTW, I am 69yo, started getting fit just 5 years ago after weighing 233 pounds (6'2") and being short of breath, etc. Now I weigh 163, go to gym 3X a week, do Tai Chi for at least an hour 5X a week, walk the trails at local State Park (3.5 miles) etc. Just getting over bunion surgery, but was back at gym/Tai Chi this past week.
