Hi all
I bought a Fitbit at the weekend, hoping it'll get me out of a rut and get moving a bit more and lose a bit of weight.
I've not got too much to lose but being only 5ft 2 and a real pear shape I start to look bottom heavy very quickly!
I've got quite into the Fitbit and wondered if anyone on here would be up for a bit of a Fitbit challenge? No one I know seems to have one except for my super fit sister and friends!

There are quite a few of us who are on Fitbit as friends, I'll send you a personal message & you can join us. All very anonymous as Fitbit is real names & MN isn't. Lots of week or weekend challenges & meeting personal daily goals.

That's great Thankyou! smile

charimito Mon 08-May-17 12:00:40

I'm interested too! Could you message me as well? Xx

BigGreenOlives Mon 08-May-17 12:07:10

Will do - will add you to the challenge I've just set up too.

BigGreenOlives Mon 08-May-17 12:12:25

@charimito, I've added you.

@BigGreenOlives could I be cheeky and ask if I can join too as Im in the same position

VelvetB Mon 08-May-17 12:29:42

@charimito and @BigGreenOlives I've sent you both a PM too smile

charimito Mon 08-May-17 12:34:01

Yay! I think we're fitbit friends now smile

BigGreenOlives Mon 08-May-17 12:44:36

@BaronessEllaSaturday I have sent you a PM so you'll be able to find me & then I can add you to our workweek challenge...

leavethelighton Mon 08-May-17 13:53:48

Any chance I could join as well? I think a little friendly competition might kick me into gear!

BigGreenOlives Mon 08-May-17 14:04:26

I'll pm you in a minute @leavethelighton

dyzzidi Mon 08-May-17 14:05:52

Can I join too? I have quite a bit to lose!

Sjjr23 Mon 08-May-17 14:19:12

Competition could be the kick up the bum I need!

BigGreenOlives Mon 08-May-17 14:30:16

Could I join too please? Got a new fitbit the other week, a d could do with some motivation

Minniemagoo Mon 08-May-17 14:54:44

Hey, I'm 8 weeks post major back surgery and using the fitbit to up my walking, would the group work for me or are you all on major distances?
I'd love a few friends just to keep my motivation up.

ZestyCitrus Mon 08-May-17 15:07:53

I would love some Fitbit friends too please smile

@MyVisionsComeFrom Soup, @Minniemagoo & @ZestyCitrus

I've pm'd you all and you should be able to find me.

From what I can see people cover a wide range of steps per day so you should be fine *@Minniemagoo*. I think having the weekly or daily challenges (which can be to reach your step goal, that being as low as you want) really helps.

I have set up a Workweek Challenge and added some names but I don't know who is which MN name & don't want to so as to ensure that the MN anonymity remains.

ZestyCitrus Mon 08-May-17 18:38:11

Hi @BigGreenOlives, thanks for your PM. I name change every week so don't worry about my anonymity but thank you for the thought!

Looking forward to getting started with everyone!

MyVisionsComeFromSoup Mon 08-May-17 18:39:02

Thanks, I'll get it set up later, when i'm not multitasking work and dinner and listening to teenage wittering grin.

MyVisionsComeFromSoup Mon 08-May-17 18:40:15

Minimagoo- I'm walking only, I'm not currently built for running wink. In three stones time maybe, but not at present!

BigGreenOlives Mon 08-May-17 22:10:44

MyVisionsComeFromSoup no need to compare yourself with anyone else - the hardest part is showing up.

Oh dear! I bought one on Saturday....but I haven't even taken it out of its box yet! Obviously, when I picked my username a few years ago, it wasn't on an idle whim😀.
