My old Fitbit blaze died after the 2.5 years, and after some research, I decided to replace my blaze with the new Fitbit Charge 3. Here are some of the features I like:

The battery is supposed to last 7 days (we'll see)

Fitbit Charge 3 helps you find moments of calm throughout your day with personalized guided breathing sessions based on your heart rate.

A listener turn me on to the Achievement App

Back from another time of traveling. I've been playing with a few toys. is an app that pays you for (more or less) letting them stalk you. You can connect your fitbit, myfitnesspal, etc.

One of the apps you can connect is interesting "breathe" see (both Apple and Android) I might use this in the future for those time when I'm stress eating

Your Weight Loss Strategy Ranked By Willpower


I read an article on MyFitnesspal and saw this article.

We've spoken about Willpower in the past and how you can run out it if you try to rely on it oo heavily.

See episodes Willpower and consistency and Operating Fear or Love

Write a list of ALL the things you can do to lose weight (both on the food side and the activity side)

Then next to each item, write down how much willpower will be needed to do this item.

Choose one item for food, and another item for activity that will "cost" the least amount of Willpower.

As you need action and willpower, choosing items that require less willpower will enable you to take consistent steps, which will boost your confidence.

The boost in confidence will boost your willpower.
