We’re sure your mothers are all very proud!

  • I really enjoy the fitbit and would like to see the grams of protein verse carbs verse fat on my mobile app. Entering my daily food is a snap and the calorie counter is great. I am working on building muscle so the ratio of carbs to protein is very important to me. Please add this tracking on the mobile app.

  • Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
