    Fitbits, Fuelbands and Jawbone

    I'm reading up on these tracking devices and they seem to be a good idea. I have ME anyway, so the thought of tracking the actual energy expended each day is a good one, and it means I can really identify the days where I have to avoid extra exercise. I like the idea.

    Does anyone have any of these, and can you give me any advice about which to buy? I'm leaning towards the new Fitbit Force when it's released, simply because it has a watch function, but I'd be very interested in views from people who've used them. I have a MFP account, so something that synchs with that would be good, but it's not a deal breaker

    I love my Fitbit, it measures daily exercise and sleep patterns then gives you a daily, weekly and monthly report, I synch with MFP and I find it's a great motivator. I bought my daughter one for Christmas and she loves hers too so we compare notes and set ourselves challenges. I'm sure you'll get just as hooked with it!

    I have a Fitbit. Don't know anything about the other two.
    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.

    What fits your schedule better -- Exercising 1 hour a day or being f** 24 hours a day?”

    "I don’t think there’s any excuse for women not to stay in shape. We just need to stop gorging, put on our trainers, and use some self-control. No one else is going to do it for us." Linda Barker

    “Eating crappy food isn't a reward -- it's a punishment.” ― Drew Carey

    Paleo since Apr 2012 9st 9lbs got to 8st 7lbs October 2012 and with focus,exercise and motivation have stayed below 9st since.
    Hard work and dedication pays off.No time for excuses if you really want to loss the weight.
    I can now enjoy special occasions without having to worry about what the scales will say after.
    Loving life,Loving my body.
