This new year I am once again back at trying to get my weight down and become a healthier me. For this journey into familiar and mostly disappointing territory, I have a new weapon in my war on weight. My Christmas present this past year from my parents and my sister was a Fitbit Charge. So far I am loving this gift. I have been more diligent about making sure I am doing enough walking and exercise as I am constantly monitoring my daily steps. I have also been using the app to make sure I am getting good sleep at night and drinking of water each day. So far in just two weeks of keeping track of things with the Fitbit, watching what I eat and how much exercise and steps I get, I am already down 2 lbs. That’s the good news, but the reality is I have a long way to go. Hopefully I will be checking in with even more progress and steps this 2016!
