After years of being a coach potato, I started exercising at age 69! I'm going to be 70 next month and am the fittest I've ever been. Walking Yoga Zumba Swimming. A Fitbit would so help with keeping track and motivation. Younger self...why didn't you move? Might have saved hip replacements and back surgery.

I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis-severe.  The fitbit would help me be sure I am moving enough - steps, etc. - to keep my joints fluid and keep an eye on heartrate, etc.  I am living on disability and cannot afford to buy one myself.  This would absolutely assist me in a better quality of living knowing I am walking enough and so on.

My wife has a fitbit and she has been an important part of her journey to good health.  If I win the fitbit, I would give it to her (it would be an upgrade) and she'll give me her old one to get started with.  Definately a win-win situattion.

Although I have exercised almost daily since I've been 30, I would inform my younger self tolerance to eat healthier early on, avoiding processed foods at all costs. Ensuring to eat fresh fruits and vegetables daily. Of course there will be special days or hard days, don't beat myself up because tomorrow will be a whole new day!

Please don't stop trying to find out what's going on because your body is trying to tell you something is wrong.  Check for sleep apnea, your respiratory system as well as your thyroid system.  You may just be one of those people who get nervous at check time, so if you don't have a machine at home please invest in one.  Check and record your results at home because just being in the doctors office could be throwing you off.  Good luck!!!

Dear High Blood pressure.

How is you work out r? Also, are you a nervous person? In some cases decrease physical activity and Anxiety over daily issues can cause your blood pressure to be elevated. Try Some relaxations techniques, and see if that  help reduce you blood pressure.

Good luck.

I have sleep apnea. I'm trying to move more but I'm beat. I take stairs when I can and trying to walk more than the day before. A fitbit would be my guardian angel.
