Hi, I'm a 60 year old Alabama Granny who loves her Lord! I suffer from Fibromyalgia and Depression, Chronic Pain and Fatigue, and IBS. I am almost completely homebound from Agoraphobia and depression.
I want to lose about 50 pounds but this is not set in stone. I want to be a healthy weight and size!
I have a delightful Bichon, and a frisky, half-blind Maltese Cat. I am Blessed to have my Nephew living with me and helping me with every day life!
I am Blessed!

    Alabama Susan, Yesterday I began experiencing issues with my laptop. So, online access may be a bit more restricted for me until I get it resolved. It's the power supply that's giving me grief.

    Have a wonderful weekend! emoticon

    Thanks for your comment on my blog post today. I have the Fitbit Blaze. I really like it because it can sync to my phone and act like a GPS then. It also measures heart rate and sleep patterns - which I think the Fitbit Charge 2 also does. But I don't think the Charge 2 will act as a GPS device.

    If you don't want all the whistles and bells, I started with the Fitbit Flex. It was pretty basic, but it did the trick if all you want to do is keep track of step count.

    Good luck!

    Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to send me a Happy Anniversary goodie! I see on your page that we are both almost 60 grandmothers!
