I described previously how the Jawbone UPMOVE was already changing my behavior in a significant way, specifically when it comes to sleep, exercise, and diet. The device continues to affect my life in those categories, with one additional benefit: it doesn’t look out of place with an all-black outfit!
I wore this to my teen’s junior high graduation and I felt good in it—and not just because all-black is slimming. The last time I wore these pants on the blog, I was demonstrating how to attempt to camouflage a seven-pound weight gain over the holidays. After using my UP MOVE for a month, I’ve lost more than half of that extra weight—four pounds! I have to say it’s great to feel in control of body again. I’m addicted to logging my sleep every night, which means more sleep and better metabolism. Same with recording my food and exercise—seeing my stats, as well as the UP App’s advice to eat more fiber and get to bed earlier, have proven to be key in getting me on the road to a weight I’m more comfortable with.
I’m particularly impressed with the workout logging function of the UP MOVE because if I forget to click my device beforehand, when I log on to the UP App, it greets me with: “It looks like you were really moving.” I’m like: “Thanks for noticing!” I can then let the app know what I was doing and how hard I was working and it estimates the number of calories I burned.
I do believe the UP MOVE and I have a long an meaningful relationship ahead of us!
