I'm72 years young, married for 55 years to the same man (my place in heaven is reserved). We have 3 adult children who have given the best gifts I could imagine, 6 wonderful Grand-kids. We live in what we like to call gods country in the midst of the baby finger of Michigan. I have been fighting with my weight for 40 years it seems, sometimes its up, sometimes its down and every once in a while its where it should be. This go round with the weight problem stems from a fight with breast cancer in the fall of 08, the total lack of energy going through the radiation pretty much wiped me out. So I basically went to treatment then sacked out on the couch until bed time. By the end I was 157 pounds on the Dr.s scale. That was Jan. 5th, 09. In Feb I was back to the gym 3 days a week for an hour. March I joined a class 2 days a week besides the 3 days on my own. By end of April I had lost 22 pounds. now I Watch what I eat and how much to maintain that weight. And work out or walk every day I can.

    I was reading what you had to say about the spark activity tracker, and talking about the Zip. I am a former SPAT user, miss it very much. The Fitbit Zip is quite inferior to the SPAT. I never had battery problems with the SPAT; I didn't have the SPAT quit working with no notice. The batteries have a short life with the Zip. I didn't have to worry about my SPAT syncing, but with the Zip I have to do a lot more to be sure it is doing what it's suppose to. I wear it on my sock. I feel that give me accuracy in my steps. When I try wearing it on a waist band or anywhere else but the sock, I get zilch.
    I am 71, and celebrated 50 years of marriage last October.
    In November of 2008 I found out I had breast cancer. I had a double mastectomy in December 2008, and I feel blessed to be a breast cancer survivor.
    I feel I have a number of things in common with you. emoticon
