15 Awesome Things You Got from Mom

This week we’re celebrating Mother’s Day in the U.S. with our friends over at Fitbit. Whether you’re a mom or you just happen to have one, you’ll find great tips and advice for staying healthy and happy all year long. (Oh and don’t forget, mom makes a great addition to your Fitness Tribe!) 

On Facebook and Twitter this week, we asked you what feature or personality trait you happily got from your mother. And, boy, did you have some terrific answers! We expected the typical, “I love that I got my mom’s brown eyes.” But you guys got creative, and dug deep, offering up some super personal, super inspiring statements. We’re sure your mothers are all very proud!

On Facebook, we asked, “What trait or feature are you glad you got from your mom?” And you responded:

1. “I got her muscular calves and I’m learning to love them.” —Amy Sader Brown
