I have been debating purchasing this accessory for awhile but today on my way home from work, I stopped at Target and made the plunge. I bought a Fitbit Flex in pink (of course).
I chose to go with the Flex instead of the Zip (which is about half the price) because of the added features. I like wearing it as a bracelet. I feel like it is less likely to be lost. I am in love with the feature that tracks your sleep. I think it will be so interesting to see how I sleep.
This was a gamble for me because I do not have a great track record of staying with my lifestyle changes. With this purchase I am committing to having a more active life. I am hoping that this activity monitor pays for itself with the pounds that I will lose.
I am really enjoying My Fitness Pal and so far think it is a great program. I miss my points on Weight Watchers (I am not sure since at the end I wasn't really following the program) but getting used of the calorie counting. I wanted a way to accurately count the calories I was earning for activity.
I am counting on this being a huge motivator for me. I want to get excited about adding activity in my life and maybe even become the person that enjoys it instead of viewing it as a chore.
I will report to you how it is working for me. Do any of you have a Fitbit? How does it work for you?
