Let me start out by saying I am not personal trainer, nutritionist or health guru, whatever that is. I am a technology loving gal that wanted to make some changes in my own life two and a bit years ago, but had no idea how or where to start. The one thing I had been missing, or didn’t know I needed, was a way to measure progress. Small changes that over time made incremental differences for the better; being able to measure these changes in a way that made sense brought me to my goal. Losing 112 lbs. Yes I lost a human being. I can laugh about that now but when I look back, the desired result was too large and too difficult to even imagine as being possible. Hence the method needed to measure change – Fitbit.
I had been looking at personal health trackers for a while and the concept of visually seeing my progress and tying that to technology I already owned and loved just made sense. To create “doable” daily goals and visually see my progress towards those changed everything for me. Many times I found myself walking up and down the stairs in my home before I went to bed just to get my step goal or flights of stair goal for that day. Something about a green success band for that goal was a mental and emotional high. I did it. Achieving those goals for most days over a period of a year, well, it changed me from both a health and an emotional point of view. You see, anyone who tells you they can give you immediate results are not giving you the truth. It takes time. When it becomes a lifestyle, it lasts. I know.
