Quoting she nan igans:" One of those times I'll show my progress (and groan, lol) here we go. The before was at the start of ... [snip!] ... where the scale won't move and you'll need to be reminded by how far you've come. You can do it, and it's TOTALLY worth it!"
Quoting Mayhem.:" AH! 25 lbs? That's amazing. I love pictures where people lose the little "pouch", because it sometimes seems like I'll never be able to. I like knowing that it's possible. What do you do? "
Quoting she nan igans:" It's gone away, little by little, haha. Just eating better and exercise. I did weight watchers first ... [snip!] ... I have some health issues so I can't do very much strenuous activity, so instead I just make sure I am moving most of the day."
Quoting Mayhem.:" I HAVE A FITBIT! I feel like...I might start stalking your lifestyle "
Quoting she nan igans:" lol! I love that thing! It's the greatest. I had a bodyfit before, but the fitbit is SO MUCH better."
Quoting Mayhem.:" Can I ask you some questions about it? I just got it this week and am still prettyyyyy confused, lol. I got the Zip. "
Quoting she nan igans:" Sure. I have had an ultra and one, so not a zip, but I might still be able to answer them."
Quoting Mayhem.:" I'm sorry Do you use MFP or anything? Like, what's the best way to use your fitbit? I know ... [snip!] ... site or anything? I synced mine to MFP today, I just want to make sure I use it properly and get the most use out of it, lol. "
Quoting she nan igans:" Yeah, I synced it to MFP and I LOVE that. I like MFP way better then the food tracker on fitbit. Just ... [snip!] ... because fitbit tracks almost everything, so you can overestimate if you have your settings on MFP as being more active."
Quoting Mayhem.:" That's what I'm confused on, I don't know how to set each up "
Quoting she nan igans:" I set up MFP as sedentary. So it tracks the bare minimum for my calorie expenditure. Then, the fitbit ... [snip!] ... the safest way, but a lot it also trial and error. If you do it and don't see a loss, you know yuo need to adjust the settings."
