My name is Lisa and I am 55 years old; at my highest weight ever. I have spent so much of my time in the past decade ineffectually dieting, and losing 10 just to gain back that 10, and then those 10 would bring their friends......So I am now borderline diabetic, my knees are killing me, I get winded going up 2 flights of stairs, and I figure it is time to use all that information I have gained while NOT losing the weight and this time maybe actually lose it and keep it off.

Your current status reminded me of a time when my daughter was three years old and I took her to an indoor public play space that had a bunch of plastic jump ropes hanging from hooks on the wall. All around were little kids jumping rope, so my daughter took a jump rope and tried it. She'd never jumped rope before, so after a few seconds of trying, she looked up at me and complained, "This jump rope doesn't work!" I totally feel the same way you do about the scale and the tape measure! Mine don't work either, and I'm mad!

I agree a hundred percent! One day I had walked in the morning then took the kids to an amusement park. Got home & was exhausted - checked my steps and I was a few thousand from the 20K mark... called my neighbor and convinced her to go for a walk with me & I made it! That NEVER would have happened if I didn't have the fitbit :) Needless to say, I don't reach 20K often... but even making 10K makes me happy!

Have a great day!
