    Hi everyone, I guess this is where I'll check in. There seems to be a ton of different threads to participate in, too many

    I will eventually write an introduction. In short, I stopped drinking in 2007 and slipped for one night last year. I immediately went back to AA and haven't had any more slips.

    This is my third fitbit. I got the Zip this time, it doesn't count stairs like the more expensive ones, but it seems sturdier and the clip is tighter than the other ones that I lost. I like the Zip.

    My all time record for the past 3 years is 25K although I've yet to top 4k since getting the replacement on Wednesday. Walking for a half hour a day is my goal. I've reached it before, I'll reach it again

    Welcome smileydude!! Good on you for taking corrective action! 25k in a day is pretty impressive!

    Hi Smiley dude - welcome!!

    I've only got up to about 22k and it was hard going! 10k is doable daily me thinks.

    Oh - only because it takes times. Walking isn't that hard which should motivate us all👣

    Well here's my dilemma ... Years ago I tried this with a simple pedometer which worked fine ... for a while. I think it worked by counting each step as your left foot 'thunked' on the ground. However, as I spend a fair bit of time hoonling round the paddock on my mower, it counted a 'thunk' each time I hit a bump thus giving a most ridiculous reading. I think some days I walked to Darwin and back. So, if I'm not prepared to take the thing off/on - how do I know this new gadget can tell the diff between me actually walking and not just being rattled around?

    I guess if that's my biggest dilemma for the day I should be content.

    Hey there Tawny. Maybe your thunk tracker is way too sensitive. I know the one I was given to track my GCC stuff would record way more than my Fitbit. Thousands more in fact. I reckon a thunk would be way more than, say, 20 steps but! 👨

    I notice s diggy machine loaded on the back of a big truck trundle by earlier. I reckon that's where the problem started! Not expected back on until 3pm......

    Morning Undies, welcome Smileydude, nice to see you here.

    OK, I'm up for purchasing a FB thingy. I've been thinking and the Frog is right about the accuracy of the pedometer. So, need to research some more. Nicey, I shall buy your yantra mat...

    On the walking, we took the pup for a gentle walk this morning - did I mention $400 for the surgery? non? and now doing gentle exercise and eating special food. So three animals on special diets...ffs. Cats with crystal pee and a dog that vacuums up everything...

    Seriously, I've been told I do have to walk more. We did a ten minute around the block, on the flat walk this morning and I'm so stuffed now I think I'll have a nana. Pfffttt!!
