My Secret Weight Loss Weapon, S2H Replay

OK it's resolution time.  Before I officially announce what my resolution is however (as if the post title didn't give it away) I'll write my New Year's verse:

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me"
Phillipians 4:13

My New Year's resolution is to get more active and lose weight. Ugh, I know that's everyone's resolution right?  The only reason why it wasn't mine last year was because I was pregnant when January first rolled around. OB's tend to frown on pregnant women trying to lose weight.   Since giving birth I've lost 30 pounds but I still need to lose about 20 more and I really hit a wall about a month ago.  So going into the New Year I have 2 strategies.  My first plan is to cut out sugar completely (with no cheating) until I've lost at least 15 pounds. 

My second plan is to use my secret weight loss weapon and to  get cool stuff by exercising.  Prior to Christmas I bought two S2H Replays as a Christmas gift for my sister and me. I'm super excited about mine, I got it one week ago and haven't missed a work-out since.

Why so motivated you may ask, well it's really quite simple.  Every time I'm active it logs my time, and once I reach 60 minutes of activity I can upload a code to the computer to earn points (at no extra charge).  These points can be redeemed for everything from ring-tones, to song downloads, to a wii fit, or a complete wii system!  At the moment I'm only one week away from a Target gift card, or if I'm patient a little less than 4 months away from a wii fit. (that is if I stay active every day) The website also has plenty of kid prizes and the bands do come in a small for chidren's wrists.

The Replay logs any type of activity that uses arm movement, so it works if you do things like use hand-weights, jog, or power-walk.  I even get it to log my activity when I "power" clean, which is me essentially jogging around the house with a vacuum and feather duster.  The past few days I've been a little short on time so I just turn on the Kiddie tunes and march around with my girls for a half hour.

The other bonus is that on their website you can check up on other users.  Me being the competitive type, it's exciting to see my user name on the weekly leader board, especially since I'm higher up than my sister at the moment. 

Ultimately though I can't do this weight loss thing on my own. I'll take any encouragement you want to give by way of comments, and I will certainly take any prayers.  My plan is to link up with Fit Mommy Friday, and post my ongoing journey.  Maybe next Friday I'll be brave enough to post my weight.........

If you have any questions about the replay (it really is a cool little gadget) or just want me to keep you in my prayers as you try and lose weight too just leave a comment below.

In the interest of full disclosure, I do get a comission if you choose to go to their website and purchase one through my link, however, I love this product so much I would have posted a review even if I couldn't get any advertising from them.  I initially bought the replays not really knowing what to expect and ready to return them if I didn't like them, but I have been so pleased with them that I've been literally recommending them to anyone who will listen. The fact I can be affiliated with such a great product is just icing on the sugar-free, gluten-free, carb-free, taste-free, DIET cake!

Happy New Year!!

  13. That's really cool, I've never heard of that before. Have to check into it!

  14. Hey Grace, S2H a new device that tracks its user's fitness as they wear in on their arm like a watch. I bought one S2H Replay on Amazon for only $19.

  15. They are not expensive at all, I've priced them a few places and they're all around the 20 dollar mark, shipping is where it flucuates a bit. I've almost earned 10 dollars in rewards already so it doesn't take long t0 pay for itself.
