I think the Garmin ones are really pricey and you usually dont use all of the available functionality on it anyways so its overpriced for that reason. I'd got with a polar hr monitor watch & strap! Its true, Straps are the most accurate way to track your heart rate and calorie burn through your workouts. If you just plan to track workouts then go with something like that but the Fitbit its more for continuous throught the day tracking. I still wear my fitbit while i workout and use a hr monitor as well. (Fitbit has a leaderboard for steps and I'm always trying to win..)

    I mean.... it's on my phone.  And don't get me wrong, I went from 179 to 139.  But I'm back up to about 147 and not feeling very motivated.  You would think I would feel MORE motivated with our date booked etc.  Sigh.  I'm trying to recapture that mindset I felt when I first started out.  It seems to be eluding me.

      @JoannaBanana I feel you. I thought once the wedding was booked and we were a year out I would be so on track and get in the best shape of my life. Unfortunately I did the opposite and gained weight, got lazy, ate poorly. Now that I'm 6 months out, I tell you, motivation at its finest here. I just ran my first half marathon and because my training lacked I hurt my knees, so since I can't workout, my diet is practically flawless now. Apparently I just needed to hit my breaking point, which was 6 months away from my wedding and needing to lose 13lbs!

        13 in three months is totally doable! You got this! Me, I'm hoping I can reach my longtime goal of 135. I think I can stand to lose even more than that.

        I struggle with maintenance. I was at my goal (well 2 lbs off) and in the best shape of my life. Now I'm not. You take some cause it's maintenance then it falls apart. I shouldn't be so hard on myself I did maintain for 2 years then I got engaged and that took over. I just wish it was easier. I wish fighting my weight wasn't going to be a life long battle

        Its a lifestyle, not a fix. It will be there forever. I know now that I'm in my mid 20's that it's not as easy to keep my weight down. I used to be able to eat whatever but my metabolism was so good that my weight only ever moved by lie 3lbs. Now thats not the case (hence I got up 13lbs). I made the mistake of weighing in this morning. Probs not the best idea. Once a week on the same day each week is the best option. I need to get back to my cross training workouts. :S
