I am going to start by saying that I LOVE MY FITBIT. I love that it tells me how many calories I have burned throughout the day and how many steps I have taken. I find myself walking more than usual because I want to reach 10,000 steps per day (which means I am burning extra calories). It’s like you are competing against yourself.
It also measures your sleep and tells me how many times per night I wake up. It is truly amazing. It comes with a cloth holder to wear around your wrist and the Fitbit fits in there comfortably while you sleep.
And guess what, I got my Fitbit 3 weeks ago for Mother’s Day from my son. 2 weeks later I lost it!!!! Oh my God!!! I wanted to die. It fell while I was walking in the mall because I did not secure it properly. $100 down the drain. But wait, I had read that the Fitbit company had great customer service so I wrote them an email explaining how I was so upset that I lost it and it was my Mother’s Day present and guess what? They responded 24 hours later and told me they were shipping me a new replacement for free!!! OMG I didn’t know that still happened in this world. I must say I love Fitbit and I love the Fitbit company. Here is the Fitbit description if you are interested:
