fitbit friends

I've noticed a few people around here have mentioned having a Fitbit. Just wondering if any of you fancy becoming Fitbit friends? My only Fitbit friends are my walkaholic father and my 12-year-old niece, was thinking it might be nice to add some other wonky-hearted types to the mix. I'm not suggesting we compete against each other (ha - what a thought!) but we could cheer each other on and maybe do the odd goal day or one of the virtual walks at our own individual paces? Let me know if you fancy it. If there's a few of us we could maybe arrange to work as a group, I'm happy to collect and pass on relevant details if so.

  • Hi would join I've got heart failure and I'm go in to get myself a fitbit πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  • Brilliant! Let me know when you've got your Fitbit up and running :)

  • Happy to join in

  • Great, will be in touch :)

  • Will do

  • Yes I have a Fitbit. It has a heart monitor too. I have got significant heart failure, Coronary heart disease. Intermittent abnormal irregular heart rhythm and Unstable angina. So I seem to have the works! I'm on lots of medication. I've to do what I can and pace myself so not able to do a lot to impress the Fitbit.

  • All the more reason to pal up with similar people, I reckon, we'll all be better placed to realise how well you're doing, even if your Fitbit doesn't! I'll leave this post sitting for a few days then message everyone who's replied.

  • Ok doky. Have a good weekend.

  • Happy to Laura.

    I am (a lot) older than you, Familial hypercholesterolemia, two HA, one unstented blockage and Constant Angiospasm attacks.

    I walk 70,000 - 90,000 steps a week (30-40 miles) and believe it is the constant exercise (together with a low sugar diet) that has kept me alive over the last two years.

  • Good stuff, I'll be in touch shortly :)

  • Sure thing - really enjoy using mine and it's great motivation. I'm 28 and waiting for valve replacement so good to keep me getting fitter.

  • Hi Laura I'm up for this 😊

  • Count me in please

  • Count me in

  • Iam up for this too

  • Running around the house after my cat keeps my steps up :)

  • Yeah, my two cats (and my five-year-old child) do similar for me :)

  • We welcome any posts so if you want to start a thread about cats feel free ! :P

  • Don't encourage me!

  • I think I've messaged everyone who has responded, please let me know if I've missed you out by mistake. If anyone else wants to sign up at any point in the future, just let me know and I'll get you sorted out with contacts. Thanks, everyone :)
