    1. Karen LaPlant I love my Fitbit. It makes me accountable. When I first got it I decided I would do exactly what I normally do to see how much activity I was getting. I was blown away. I had days that I worked 12 hours and knew that I had done what needed to be done. When I checked my tracker, I had only gone a little over 1000 steps for the day. That's a little less than a 1/2 mile for me. Crazy! In July, I decided to challenge myself and do 5 miles a day. I am happy to say that I am on my 87th day in a row of 5 miles or more. I love this. It fits on my bra so I don't even know that its there. I have 4 people that I challenge. I would love to challenge more.
