I have worn a pedometer faithfully for over a year now to log my steps. When I first started wearing one, it got knocked off my pants waistband a couple of times and one time I lost it that way. So then I started clipping it to the waistband of my underwear instead of outside. Now I haven't had that happen anymore. My pants or skirt keeps it from getting knocked off accidentally.

I SWIM A MILE IN LAPS EVERY DAY AND I HAVE LOST MORE AND GAINED MORE MUSCLES THAN I EVER THOUGHT I WOULD
BY SWIMMING LAPS THE WATER CREATES A RESISTANT AND BY USING YOUR ARMS AND LEGS TO SWIM YOUR MUCLES BECOME STRONGER. I FOUND THIS IS BETTER THAN WEIGHTLIFTING CAUSE THE WATER KEEPS THE PRESSURE OFF YOUR JOINTS
My pedometers used to always "pop" off of my waistband when I moved. I lost several and broke a few when this happened. Since I've been using the Personal Trainer: Walking pedometers for Nintendo DS, this hasn't happened.
The Personal Trainer: Walking cartridge comes with 2 pedometers that you can clip on if you like, but you can also stick them in your pocket. This is what I like. They're accurate & don't get in your way. You can also use the cartridge to view your activity over the day. Very helpful sometimes.
