I ordered a Fitbit Flex late last week. The Fitbit was delivered today shortly before noon. It took several minutes for me to find the tracker and figure out how to pop it out of the small wristband. While charging the tracker, I set up my Fitbit via an app on my iPhone. The setup was easier than it was for me to locate the tracker! The most difficult thing, though, was to secure the wristband on my wrist!
The Fitbit seems to be working OK. I went for a walk across the neighborhood to the water company to pay our water/sewer bill. The Fitbit recorded my steps. My initial goal is to walk 10,000 steps each day.
When I returned home from my walk, I paired up MyFitnessPal (which I started to use again today) with the Fitbit.
I am now prepared to work toward my personal fitness goals!

I hope you like your Fitbit (and My Fitness Pal) as much as we like ours.
I’m so happy for you. As you know, George and I use both My Fitness Pal and our FITBITS. Those two programs link together really well. We have had ours for almost a year —and we both had our yearly physicals today. Our doctor was THRILLED at the progress we both have made in a year. George has lost 58 pounds —and I have learned to maintain my weight (within 5 pounds give or take). That is a huge accomplishment for me since I had ALWAYS gained my weight back before…
Good Luck –and if we can ever help, let us know. By the way, we have the Aria scale which works with FITBIT. It automatically records our weight, BMI and fat vs. lean…. Quite interesting.
