Okay...unstalled, but still not moving super quickly. April wasn't great for weight loss. I'm guessing that is mainly due to stress.
I am really really thatclose to 40 lbs lost. Any day now!
Today I got my new Fitbit Flex in the mail, at last. I preordered it, so I guess I'm one of the first to get it. It's pretty cool, but it doesn't track stairs climbed like the One does. I guess that's fine...it's just another thing to compete with myself over...but it was motivating. It looks very sleek, and I don't have to take it off my wrist to wash dishes or take a shower, which is nice. The silicone wrist band becomes body temp pretty quickly so I don't really notice it is there. I did like having the info right there on my tracker with the One. But I kept it clipped in my bra (easiest place not to lose it) and reaching in to look at it...is awkward. So, instead, I can look on my iPhone app at current info, which is something I'll get used to. It seems like there should be a watch feature or something...tell the time, maybe a HR monitor. But I think the point was just to have a very unobtrusive device that didn't have a lot of stuff displayed, esp since most of us carry a phone with us all the time that can give us that info. So far, I like it, but I am surprised that it does lose some of the functionality that the One has.
I am definitely fitting into smaller clothes and looking like I have lost weight. I have a long way to go, but most often if I get 10K steps a day and eat about 1000 kcal, I lose weight. So that's what I focus on.
I'm finding at this point that I don't have to run to stay active, which is good because finding kid-free, job-free time to run is quite difficult. Walking has been sufficient so far. We live in an area with a "high walk score", so we usually go for a walk in the evening somewhere in our neighborhood and that takes care of my exercise needs, plus keeps my mood tuned up.
Time for bed!
