I would love to have a Fitbit, but I cannot afford to buy one.  This would be a lovely gift to motivate me to be more active in  my 84th year. Eliza

 I am 67 years old, with mild COPD,shortness of breath and post shingles nerve pain. In the last six months I have gained 35 lbs. due to a lack of movement.( spend most of my time in front of a computer screen) My pulmonary doctor  says that I need to get moving again and lose weight so using the Fitbit would help keep me motivated.

I'm 54 years old I have a condition called Spondylolisthesis. I've had 2 back surgeries and been on disability for a while.  Now I found out that the screws in my spine are loosening. A fitbit would definitely give the motivation to get myself up and moving around.

I am a registered nurse working in a clinic that serves college-aged people.  It is a concern for that many are so out of shape and overweight.  I have struggled with my weight all my life and like to think I am in pretty fair shape.  I try to impart words of wisdom to these young people about maintaining a healthy BMI, weight, blood pressure etc.

I think I qualify as an old lady (78) but I still hike and attend fitness classes 4 or 5 days a week unless hiking.  It would encourage me to work vigorously to have a fitbit.

I am 53 yrs old and currently work as a Security Officer for a mental health facility, the overnite tour. I must keep myself in shape to deal with day to day stress. I walk a good portion of an 214 acre hospital property. I lift weights and try to eat right. A fitbit would help me to maintain a healthy life style. Sincerelt Carol LaBella

I have been doing ALL I can to improve and maintain my health as I age. I currently walk, do yoga, and lift weights.  Am on track with weight and blood pressure.  Could use some help in managing sleep better!  A FITBIT would be an amazing addition to my health quest!  THANK YOU AARP!!
