Have averaged 34,000 steps/day. Yes, you read it right. Working in my garden, walking the dog, going to the grocery store (walking there) and (mostly) nice weather had allowed me to walk EVERYWHERE. I am so glad to live in the area I am in!

HUGS and smiles. Here's to a great weekend.

No I did not but will check it out. They do,have a new one called the Flex that is a wristband.
I,had over 16,000 steps yesterday as I walked the golf course for the first time since my,TKR.
It felt so good but it was such a hilly vourse that I was exhausted. There were too hills that they had a cart to take you up! My fitbit said I climbed 24 flights of stairs!

Wed 3500 ( I am rounding off number )

Donna I looked up the wrist band-- they are 14,95 on line and do come in colors other than black and just slip the fit bit in and wear around your wrist-- might be another option for you,

Clipped to the bra is the best I agree but sometimes when you are wearing lighter fabrics you can see it. I am not big busted so there is not as much gap as there are for others!!!! emoticon

Tuesday a pitiful 4600 steps compared to 34, 000 geeez .

Donna I wear mine clipped to my bra. It has never come lose there-- I know I would lose it clipped to pocket as I have to keep other stuff in my pocket of my scrubs.

There is a Fit Bit you wear as a bracelet now-- not sure what the additional features are-- but the ones I have seen are black and sure are not attractive. I need to check to see if it has any different features and will let you know.

I cannot imagine walking 34,000 steps. Not sure if I could do that! You must have put on about 15 miles.
Until my Fitbit is replaced I will not be able to participate. I miss it so much.
Charlene, where do you wear yours. I wore mine on my little jean pocket when it was cooler out or my bra. On Friday I had to clip it to my side pocket on my capris and that is how I lost it. It seemed secure but it was gone by the end of the day.

Monday 4156 steps--- not near enough but typical for work days.

What kind of pedometer do you use?

I have tried several and a couple did not work at all. Now I use a Fit Bit and I love it-- tells so much more than just the number of steps and more accurate than others that I have used.

Sorry, but can't go with you at this time. I am basically in the recliner and haven't gotten a pedometer. But most steps currently are about 500 per day. Good luck to you all. Hope to follow the progress!!

I really need to increase my steps/activity. I do good on weekends but during the week I get in very few steps. I am in the car all day and mainly walking to and from the car into a home-- walk with some patients but short distances and at a slow pace. So hope this will motivate me to get those extra steps in.

Wear your pedometer and post your steps daily.

You are competing only with yourself to raise the number and get more active.
