Meanmom...I typed in fitbit....and it came up fitbit app, then it was the top one...fitbit, inc with 3 stars and 270 reviews....I hope that helps. Also when I go to log food it's to the right of the search bar under the "Done" button...I hope that helps.

I was looking at fitbit yesterday. I need to check to see if it can be used with my iphone 4. I know my mac and ipad are too old. It's pretty cool that it shows how many flights of stairs you do each day. Another goal to try to meet each day. I wonder if I would like it as much as I did my WW activity monitor. I loved that thing.
How exciting with a new baby coming today!! I hope things go well. I know it can be tough on first time moms to be induced.
Lynne, how wonderful that your parents are finally getting a new a/c!
Yesterday I went shopping for my red, short, sparkly dress for my son's wedding. I found everything but the shiny part. It is all over lace so maybe that will be okay. I was able to get it on and zipped and the belt fastened but it is pretty snug around the waist. I am determined to lose 10 lbs before the wedding so it will fit nicely. Oh, and I paid only $29 for it at TJMax.

My newest Grand daughter was born last night at 10:51 pm. It was a long day but Faith Eliszabeth came in at 7 lb 6 oz and 20 in long. She is a beauty!

Congratulations, Gayle!!

Awww...congrats Gayle on the new baby! Lucky to be a grandma...I need to wait a bit longer, not one of my 3 are married and only one is interested in someone at this moment. It will all happen at once I'm sure.

Pam.... I think that WW and the Fitbit work together, someone once told me that the Fitbit will add up the WW "points". I have had it for many years, actually had issues with 2, so now I am on my 3rd. I should have never stopped using it, because I went down hill and now have more to lose! Oh well it was fun while it lasted, NOW BACK TO WORK!

Congratulations, Gayle. Little girls are so precious - okay, little boys are, too. Enjoy Miss Faith Eliszabeth. My oldest is Karen Elizabeth so I like the name.

Weigh in tomorrow. I hope the winner enjoys the my blue FQ. It won't be coming back here. Pat, I mailed it, but forgot to add 'Irishrose'.

I AM getting healthier and losing weight.

I took off on a bike ride this morning. I had deided I was going to ride this whole section of the bike path, about 22 miles. Luckily I decided I didn't feel like going that far. The wind kicked up a little bit and there was quite a headwind on my way bcak. The little waves in the river made it look like the river was flowing backwards. It was a lot harder ride on the way back. I rode 18 miles.
Teri thanks for the info on the App I will try to find it. Pam I have an iPhone 5c and the fitbit is compatible with it. I think it uses bluetooth. I would like to find an app that tracks WW points like the WW app. I don't want to pay to join WW again but need a point counter.
Last night was happy hour night with the staff from school. Calorie wise I did ok. What I ate wasn't very healthy but it was tasty. I had a snack size boneless wings and one drink. Back on track this morning. I haven't been on the scale in a couple of weeks. Curious to see what it has to say at the end of the month. Some of my pants are getting a little bit baggy in the butt:-)

I just posted the new thread for September. So head over there and sign up. OMG I can't believe it is September already. Good luck everyone. http://www.quiltingboard.com/general...ml#post7301165

I had a good day today. Walked 3.5 miles this morning and averaged 4.5 mph. I was really booking! We went to a going away party tonight. There was so much food. There were even some healthy options. I loaded my plate with fruits and veggies. I had a spoonful of a couple of kinds of dips and a few tostidos but a lot less than I would normally eat. Then they had hamburgers and brats and salad for the actual meal. I had a burger with mustard and a tomato on it with no bun and then a nice serving of salad which was lettuce and fruit. I sampled 3 of the desserts which maybe together was equivalent to 1 brownie. I don't feel guilty about any of it since I burned over 600 calories this morning.
I hope everyone else had a good day too!

Pam good job at the party. I haven't received the quilting board the last several days. Anyone know how I can fix that? Don't forget to PM me you weight loss tomorrow.
The weather forcast for this week is hot and more hot with major humidity piled on top of that. My school is not air conditioned and it is going to be miserable all week. I hate wearing dresses but I guess I will have to break down and wear them this week, better air circulation. By afternoon the kids are all just wilting in their desks. I am having a hard time getting my water in at school especially in the mornings as I can't really leave the room to get water or use the restroom. My little kindergartener has been described as one of the worst kids they have ever seen at that age. Her mom has declined to put her in a special unit where she could learn better behavior. We are collecting what we need to force this to happen. Not sure what they could possibly still need as she is repeating kindergarten and her file is alread over 3 inches thick. I am keeping lots of notes on her. Her behavior is unbelievable.
