Thanks for your comments on Larri2010's blog. That was really helpful to hear how the technology in the Spark is not great, but maybe 2.0 version will be better. I'm tempted to ask for a Fitbit for xmas but I may hold off a bit and see what the Spark 2.0 looks like. Haven't decided yet.
Thanks for commenting on my blog! I calibrated my pedometer based on the length of my stride, as recommended in the instructions. I haven't calibrated my Spark, but I can based on a distance measured by my car or a GPS device. I deleted the app I was using in my iPhone because it ate up the battery like crazy. I may have to try it again, even temporarily, just to see how it compares. And I, too, love how I can use my devices to record steps and miles while I am working.
I've added you as a SP friend! I feel your pain after your having read the book - although I haven't received mine yet.
BTW, you look GREAT in your photos!
I know that when you're looking for weight loss, it doesn't matter what people say about how you look, but rather to lose the weight. I understand. Just sayin' ... wanted you to know how you appear to me!
If the book is going to require me to buy a huge shopping list of stuff, I'm screwed - don't have the money, the time or the storage space.
