In Love with my Fitbit!

Well, hey, everyone!

I have been super busy with holidays and packing on some poundage, but all to the good since I've just gone on another FatBet today!

I'm so pleased to be starting at exactly 140. That's counting the holiday poundage, but before that I was maintaining my last weight (after the last FatBet) pretty darn well. This time we have four people! $400 is on the line, and ten pounds is the goal. If I get to 130 I will be thrilled, since that's Goal 45.

But about my Fitbit...*sigh* It's the greatest. We are never apart! We even sleep together. I found out on the Fitbit community site that people are naming their trackers! Well, they're so cute--but somehow I'm not catching on; "Fitbit" seems like a good enough name to me.

Check out my sleep charts for today! I got a 100% efficiency on my nap!! I really zonked out. (You can't see the time in this shot, but it was 32 minutes.) My first 100%! And last night I got 90%. That's pretty good--usually I get in the low 80s. (Sorry about the low picture quality; I had to shoot the screen with my iPhone. I couldn't do a screen grab.)

Yesterday I got all 10,000 steps in and my activity score was up in the 800s (1000 is the goal). That was undoubtedly because I was babysitting Baby Jack!!! And I know you're dying to see a picture, so here you go:

(Well, okay, it's three pictures, but it's not like you can have too many.)

I got to feed him peas and rice cereal!! Every time I gave him the peas, he went "mmmmm!" God, I love being a grandmother.

I cannot believe how old that baby is getting! I am stunned. He was just born. How can he be getting so big and so old!? I am stymied.
Mostly because this means my life is advancing as quickly as his. Dammit.
And What do you mean *if* I get to 130?
What kind of talk is that *if* stuff?
Grandmothering is so great. I am not a grandmother though I am a grand (and you better believe it!) auntie.
I love Hannah and she loves me and we hang. (Me literally and figuratively (or is that droop?) and she just hangs out.

That kid deserves a Winning Granny. (He can't possibly have figured out spoons already. Did you doctor those pictures or does he just fake it well?)

Mary Anne, I'm not sure he has them "figured out" yet; you put it up to his mouth and he kind of sucks the food out of it. But honestly, he got at least 95% of the food actually eaten and not spread all over the place. Clean Plate Club!!!! He's so intelligent!!!

I love being a grand daddy too. Can I have some peas please? Whirled Peas.

Too cute! (And I'm with POD - that kid is growing wa-a-a-ay too fast!!)

What a cutie!

And it's great to hear you're in love with your fitbit. Sounds like a very healthy crush! Hope you live happily ever after together.
