Fitbit Blaze

I keep breaking my “I have never weighed this much before” record and have decided to try to do something about it. I used the Fitbit Charge Kelly and Christian got for me quite successfully when I we lived in both Wilsonville and Lewisville so I decided to get another one. The problem was that it had a pretty lousy band that was not replaceable. My buddy, Dan in Texas used his Fitbit successfully, but ran into the same kinds of problems.

I ordered a Fitbit Blaze this afternoon to kickstart my new health and fitness plan. The other thing I am going to do when Christian is here is move the treadmill Bob lent us down to the bottom floor of the house from the garage where it is now getting too cold to use.

  1. Ken, I know what you mean by the broken lifetime weight record. I’ve also started walking again after a total of seven months away at foreign convs in hot climate areas this year. I also need to systematically ‘walk away’ from the table after a moderate serving, and drink plenty of water, doing profitable things that also keep one’s mind off “the 3 F’s”: fridge, food & freezer! We can do this! Maybe somehow we can encourage each other along. Periodic texting? WhatsApp? I need to do something about this.

  2. Jon, I have used a spreadsheet where we tracked a weight loss goals with friends that worked really well. Do you want to try that? It is a great help to me to have someone with whom to do this.
