Had no CLUE how many steps I took each day until I got a FItBit for Christmas. He's like a personal trainer I take with me each day - encouraging me to move more and collect 10,000 steps/day. I love how I can score lots of steps just doing a couple of laps up/down my street with the dog. And the scale has FINALLY started to move downward!

I got a fitbit and this little device tracks my steps calories and miles. I am so motivated to stay active because of this electronic pedometer. I'm taking the dog for longer walks, parking farther away, cleaning my house....
Personal trainers can be costly but you can't put a price on good health. A personal trainer has helped me stay on program because he knows exactly what I need for success. He is someone who will push me past what I would normally do on my own. He is also someone else who is invested in my success because his job is to help me succeed in losing weight and be physically fit.
I find that staying on program, I go out to eat way less and when I do go out, the bill is much lower. I haven't had the extra wine, appetizer or dessert. The money that I save on dinner in restaurants I use to pay my personal trainer. In fact, some weeks, I have even saved money!!!
