5340 steps yesterday.  I was really lazy yesterday.  My internal clock kept telling me it was later than it actually was.  I liked getting the hour back but it is going to take a few days to adjust.

7,511 steps yesterday.

My iPhone storage is full.  :( I've deleted all apps I don't use and off loaded ones I might. I can't reload any of them because not enough storage left... as long as Stepz still works, I guess I am OK. I may have to buy a fit bit or yikes a new larger phone!!  :( :(

8673 steps yesterday.  It was a better day all around.  I made all of my goals and felt good doing it.
Barbara, I don't know what the capacity of your phone is but the only thing I can think of is move any photos you have to the cloud.  When I bought my iPhone 7 it was only available with either 32G or 128G of storage and I decided to get the 128G and pay another $100 more because I didn't thing 32G was enough.  To date my total storage use is just over 20G even with all of the apps I have loaded.  I don't think I will ever get close to 128G but at least I won't run out either.

7,924 steps yesterday.

Wally, I only have the 16G model iPhone 5se. I didn't really think I would need more than that...Wrong!! I do think the photos are a big part of the problem, but I can't figure out how to upload them to the cloud or just delete them from the phone. They are all on my iPad so don't really need them on my phone...

Sigh, I may just have to bite the bullet and buy a new phone...I just paid this one off, dang it!

Well, if they are on your iPad they are also probably on the cloud also but to delete them from your phone is easy.  Just open photos and select a photo.  On the lower right is a trash can.  Select the trash can and it is gone. 
You can see where all of your storage is being used by going to settings, general and then iPhone storage.  There it will show how much is being used by all apps and things like photos.

Thanks Wally! I couldn't figure it out. Looks like a great project to keep me occupied tomorrow while it is snowing!  :)

Wally, I don't want to sound stupid...tech ignorant...but what is Media? When I look at my storage, Media takes up almost half of the space. Photos are a small amount and the next largest is the Other, whatever that is...

Everything is in the cloud, my podcasts, music, facetime, calculator, google maps, iTunes store. So what else is Media??

8295 steps yesterday.  Around the middle of the day I was having trouble with my back and I really didn't think I would even get to 7K but it seemed to work itself out and I made more than I expected.
Barbara, I don't know what is included in media, it is a category I don't have on my phone.  If you scroll down when you are in iPhone storage though it will show all of the items and how much each item uses and you can delete anything that you really don't use.
I was just looking and media is a category including music, videos and things like podcasts.  These would take up a lot of room so you could look for that.

7,510 steps yesterday. Don't know how today is going to go lots of  ~ cat ~ in lap today.

I'm reconciling myself to the fact that I will be buying a new bigger phone... Guess it will be my Christmas gift to myself.

6243 steps yesterday.  I started having problems with my knee yesterday and backed off.  It is still a bit sore today so I don't know how it is going to turn out.  It has almost been a year since the injections so I may be ready to start again.
Yeah Barbara, I went through that when I had my iPhone 5.  At the time I got it I thought 16G was all I would ever need.  When I changed carriers I had to get a new phone and at that time the iPhone 7 came only in 32G or 128G so I went with the larger capacity.  I know I will never use 128G but I could possibly need more than 32G although not so far.

7,951 steps yesterday.

After 35 minutes on the  phone with AT&T I will soon be receiving an iPhone 7 128G in rose gold. I really wanted to get another 5SE with 128 G but they couldn't sell me one as an upgrade to my 16G because it was going backward?? The 6s or 6s+ was way too big so I went with the 7 as it is just a little larger than my 5SE. I should not run out of storage again... May get it next Tuesday. I wanted to pay for it outright, but they don't allow that... so I have another $18+ on my bill each month... sigh

I just hope I can figure out how to transfer from the old phone to the 7. I may be making a trip up to town to the AT&T store for them to help me.

I went from the SE to the iPhone 7 and I like it quite a bit.  Like you I don't like the large phones and the 7 is just right.  Transferring from your old phone to your new phone is pretty easy but if you don't feel comfortable a trip to the store might help.  All of your phones data should be on the icloud if icloud backup is on.

8938 steps yesterday.  I started the day with a little bit of soreness in my knee but interestingly it went away the more I walked and didn't bother me much at all.
