I'd tell me to ask myself if I really think I need all this junk food.  I'd show my younger me what it looks and feels like having diabetes.  If only I had learned to control my weight and learned what I was risking.

I would tell my younger self to love yourself more, find your inner heart and treat it as something special, worthy of more pampering.  Don't destroy it with unhealthy foods, sugary drinks and snacks, and fat, empty calories.  Feel good and love those fruits and vegetables.  Begin to work some magic with others by campaigning for healthier diets for everyone.  Help  spread the word about the dangers of industrialized food production; only if we work together can we change anything.  And above all, keep moving...you'll be glad you did; don't wait to wish you had.

Recently learned that my extra weight may be the cause of my kidneys not functioning as they should. A Fitbit will help me in my weight loss goals and, in the long run, contribute to improved health.

I would love to win a FitBit! It would assist me in my exercise routine AND since I don't have a watch, it would be a win win for me. I would like to know how many steps I take each day. I have also heard that the FitBit is a great lifesaver if you should have a medical emergency.

I just turned 60 this year and am trying to get healthy. This would help me to connect with friends that could encourage me.  Would be an awesome addition to have in my quest to a healthier lifestyle .

It would be nice to have a Fitbit as I do my daily 3mile walk. I look into them but they are to much for my budget. Thanks for the opportunity

I've tried other fitness trackers and have been quite underwhelmed. The Fitbit has a good reputation, although it seems quite expensive, so I'd like to have an opportunity to use it. Free sounds just right to me

I am enjoying AARP United Health Care "At Your Best" program since January. Attend twice a week and exercise in between at the fitness center.  Would love a FIT to keep track of my progress.
