    I know that many use it, and my guess is it is like most things...as reliable as anything else. Nothing is ever going to be 100% accurate.

    I'm in! Did a so-so job for the December challenge average of 5k steps a day. Today, however, I ended with a bang 10k steps! Determined to make it to 10k 2x a week for January.

    I'm in: Sounds like a great Challenge to get everyone who's starting in Jan. 2016.

    Can anyone tell me how to save or refine the community boards again. Happy New Years everyone!

    If by refining, you mean turning some of the parts off. Hover over what you do not want to see and you will see the little gear and that is the settings and you can change what is displayed. If you want to keep this as a favorite, then click the little star so you can come back faster.

    Happy Birthday! Which model did you get? I'm looking at the HR as a prize when I lose another 2 lbs (rewarding myself every 10 lbs).

    Nothing is ever so-so, if you get up and walk, you are groovin'! I think it is awesome for anyone just to get up and move!

    Agree with Alpha. It's what I use though. I'm thinking a FitBit may be a good reward for maybe 15 or 20 lbs loss, and a good motivator to keep going after that. But for now I just use the Map My Walk app on my phone. It does sync the walks to MFP when you're done too!

    A fitbit is an awesome tool and I would not even see it as a reward, but just the most awesome tool needed in one's tool kit. I used my Ipod for 4 months and got the fitbit for my birthday since that was the only way I could afford it. If I could have gotten it before, I would have had it. I knew I was a sedentary person, but WoW! I am really sedentary and this little gadget gets me groovin'
