Can any member tell us about Fitbit and how it works? How is it different than a pedometer?

I have found that a pedometer is a good motivator to keep moving. The one i have tracks mileage and steps. I can tell when I have an off day and my steps and mileage are low. Pedometers do not cost that much for a basic one and it is a good way to gauge how active you are doing the day or for a walk to measure your steps and mileage.

If you haven't been exercising your body in a cosistant manner for years or months, start out in the water! Low-impact water aerobics has been really good to my wife and I. I really recommennd it to anyone that is starting out in a new exercise regimen. Thanks honey for the great idea!

I use a carry cooler alot (trying to eat out less) and I find that a frozen bottle of water thrown in there keeps food longer than the expensive ice packs and you can drink it later

The possibilities always outnumber the problems.

I had to be cued when I first started working out and so my husband called on his breaks and I would move for 5 (later more) minutes. Later I bought an extra kitchen timer to go off in an hour or so to remind me to stop whatever I was doing in the house and get moving.

You do an excellent job setting up teams and i should think that would be something you could help with. Also your cooking skills and recipes are excellent and should be abl to help with any new methods, recipes, foods, etc. That's just off the top of my head!!

Do have expertise in an area that might be new to someone on the team? Would you be willing to help that person/s by teaching them how-to do whatever, send them in the proper direction to learn, let them know your experience when first learning, and/or mentor?

If so, could you comment on this thread to let everyone know? Wouldn't it be great to teach one another new things ourselves?
