Spoonie Fitbit friends?

Feb 02, 2017 7:12 PM

Anyone wanna be fitbit friends? I need more people who are closer to my pace to do challenges with lol. Being beaten by over 5,000 steps isn't exactly motivational๐Ÿ˜‚

Feb 02, 2017 7:17 PM

I'd love to! What kind of step goal are you at? I'm aiming for 6500 at the moment (getting to and from my office tends to get there but days at home? Fuggetabout it)

Sure I'd love to join you. I feel the same way. I'm in challenges with non pain patients and its a bit intimidating.

I would love to join you as well. I stopped using my Fitbit for that reason. I'm good to get 5000 a day. Let me get it charged up. P.S. How do I join you?

Feb 03, 2017 9:06 AM

I would like to know that too. I'm not over 2500 right now. But I'm working on it.

Feb 03, 2017 9:08 AM

Wait I meant 3000 a day. Chubby fingers and small keyboard don't go well. LOL

Yay I'm glad I got responses! You add people by going to your friends and putting in their email!
You guys can add me by adding "brooklynn.bates@gmail.com" to your fitbit friends when it gives you the option for adding someone over Facebook or email :)
I usually get about 1,000 steps a day. I'm pretty much bed ridden but I'm trying to get some strength back!

I love my Fitbit. Due to my job I am at 10000 sets which I hit as a teacher

Feb 04, 2017 7:28 PM

I agree. I got mine in NOV and started at 5000 steps and am at 7500 which seems to be my max now. I would love to be FitBit friends with you. My sister does those darn challenges and always kicks my butt. I dont want competition but morivation.

I think I am registered via Facebook but will double check. Elizabeth L. CULP

I'd love to as well- depending on how I'm going I can get 10,000 but some days pain and low motivation means mych much less

Feb 05, 2017 6:47 AM

My goal is 5000 but usually get 2500 would love Fitbit friends

I have a question about battery life on your bits.. what's the average time yours goes before you need to charge it?

Feb 05, 2017 11:47 AM

Mine goes for about 2-3 days. I charge it when I shower since it is not waterproof

Feb 05, 2017 11:53 AM

Oh.ok..mine too.. I've some people say there goes five or so days. So I was starting to get concerned .

Is the Fitbit friends offer still open? I finally got mine up & going today. I would love to have friends on it. One of my friends on it does Pound (teaches it actually) and Zumba and all that. I can even come close to her. Please add me if anyone would like mmowery08@hotmail.com

Apr 03, 2017 7:34 PM

That should have said I CAN'T even come close to her.

I got a Samsung Gear2 .. Got it activated today. Now to figure it out. Don't guess I could do the same challenges since its a different tracker. ??

Apr 04, 2017 3:13 AM

Melanie.welcome I just added you so I'll see u on the Fitbit trail.
Mimikay..I would love it if we could I'm not sure if it possible or not. Maybe so of our more tech savvy friends here could help us. If not your more then welcome to join us on my fitness pal. It's a free app that also helps u track food fitness and keep in contact with friends.

I know I'm a latecomer but I'd love to join in please. Like frailfairy, I'm 99% bedridden but I need to regain my strength. My email is

Apr 04, 2017 2:32 PM

Soon as I'm charged. Thanks!

Apr 05, 2017 3:08 PM

I'll add you once I receive my replacement. I know how you feel. My daily goal is 5,000. The most I've ever had in a day is 8,500. All my friends hit 15,000+ a day.

Apr 07, 2017 9:58 PM

I was doing good to make 3000 steps a day. Then 6 weeks ago my dad had surgery and we are taking turns sitting with him. Now on some days I get near 7500 steps! Then I have days where I'm so tired I can't make 2000. Stress eating has not helped as I'm not losing any weight. I can't remember my Fitbit email but Toya added me. I'm Flappy's L. on it. I'll post later if I remember. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒธ
