    Jenn - I have tried 5htp before, but I am not sure if it helps or not. The thing is that I have always been taking a ton of other supps and not been consistent with it. This time I am starting at the lowest dose, only taking it with magnesium and taking it at dinner rather than too close to bedtime. I'll keep reporting in. I wear the GoWearFit device which actually shows me my sleep pattern. I hope to see longer periods of uninterrupted sleep with fewer awake periods overall.

    I wanted to get a fitbit but now I see that it's worn on the shirt? Odd. I'm looking at a GoWearFit device now. Which one do you have? I'm thinking of getting the core, but the pages aren't loading for me. *sigh*

    A bodybugg would be cool too, but I think it's much bigger and bulkier than the GoWearFit.

    Ok. I want one. Watching them on eBay. Might start squirrelling away my $25 a week allowance for one. Or I could just ask Brad.

    I wear my fitbit on my bra, or in a pant pocket, it is never visible. I also found it was more accurate for recording sleep when I put it in a pocket than when I wore it on my wrist. I am mostly pretty happy with it. I broke the clip that holds it to my bra and they sent me a new one within days, no charge no hassle. Nice people.

    The thing I didn't like was something the GoWearFit page said - that the fitbit is less accurate b/c it records physical movement, not biometrics, or something along that wording.

    It has seemed pretty spot on to me. The place where it isn't accurate is in flights of stairs, it always under counts those. It counts flights of stairs and you have to do a certain number of stairs at once it is not cumulative. So if your staircase is 18 steps and a "flight" is 10 you get one flight every time you climb the whole staircase. I saw where people were getting steps while riding in cars, etc. It hasn't happened to me. Also you can't cheat it like cheap pedometers (ie. shake it to add to your steps) you have to be moving forward while stepping supposedly. But it records my steps on the treadmill (and says pretty much the same thing that my Omron did.

    I wish I would have been a part of this conversation several pages back.......... I have a good story about being pulled over!

    my motivation

    As per Marcadav:
    Do 30-60 days clean primal.
    No grains, sugar, alcohol.
    Eat 3 meals and primal snacks.
    Don't track food.
    Don't tweak.
    Don't expect issues to go away quickly. Instead, just follow the plan and see how things play out.
    Decide on an exercise plan you can/will do consistently during the 30-60 days and then do it.

    I have the original gowearfit and I love it. It is now 3 years old. I can't imagine how much more cool and accurate the new ones are. The gowearfit and the bodybugg used to be essentially the same thing. I honestly don't understand how the fitbit works since it doesn't touch skin. Biometrics allows the GWF to measure actual calories burned, create a sleep graph which shows when you were sleeping as opposed to lying down, and measure exercise by METS. Get One!

    I am going to try to post some info from my readout so you can see it.

    Pebbles- I see that it requires a subscription or is that only for a few of them?

    Look at the sleep graph. 5 htp makes a huge difference in my wakefulness.
