Any doctors out there who have tried sleep/activity/etc. Tracking devices and services (e.G., jawbone's up, fitbit, nike+ fuelband)? Thoughts?

For example if I have not met my step goal by dinner time a postrprandial walk becomes more attractive. At night, the fitbit can provide useful information regarding quality of sleep. The web software allows for tracking of calorie intake andweight. ...Read more

Had gastric bypass 12 yrsago. Lost 130#. Gains about 95  back.  Would weight watchers work for me. .  Can't afford a revision.?

Absolutely : Yes weight watchers, jenny craig or any of the other weight loss programs would work. It would certainly help if you worked closely with a nutritionist and a trainer at te gym.
