I Love My Fitbit One

My Fitbit OneThrough shopping trips, walks, cleaning house, teaching middle school students, even while sleeping, it’s my secret partner, traveling with me everywhere.  It tracks my steps, the stairs I climb, the calories I burn, my activity level, and the distance I’ve walked.  It’s been an ally in my weight loss journey since June of this year, helping me lose almost 30 pounds.  It’s my Fitbit One and I love it.  Here’s why:

  1. While there are several Fitbit trackers available, I prefer the Fitbit One because it’s discreet.  I wear it clipped to my bra every single day.  It stays put no matter what I’m doing.  The only time I’m not wearing it is when I shower.
  2. The interactive apps on my iPhone and iPad show me real-time information on my activity level (steps, distance, stairs climbed), calories burned, sleep hours/quality, plus more.  You can even use the app to log other information, such as the amount of water consumed, your weight, etc.

  3. The Fitbit One works with a weight loss app I adore and swear by – Lose It!  I began using Lose It! in 2009, successfully losing about 50 pounds.  Unfortunately, an unhealthy diet and busy work schedule caused me to gain about 30 of those pounds back.  I began using Lose It! again in June of this year, and as of this post, I’m only 10 pounds away from my goal weight (the weight I was in college)!  There’s no magic bullet for losing weight.  The ONLY thing that works for me is logging EVERYTHING I eat and keeping track of my activity level.  The Fitbit One and the apps keep me honest, providing a visual reminder (my log) of what I’ve eaten, what I can still eat, and how active I’ve been.  The Fitbit One records my activity level and adjusts my calories in the Lose It! app (shown as “Exercise” in the image below).  The Lose It! app communicates with the Fitbit app, showing the amount of calories I’ve eaten vs. the amount I’ve burned.

The Fitbit One retails for $99.  I purchased my black Fitbit One from Amazon when the price dropped to $80.81.  I’ve seen the price fall as low as $76 back in August. 

I love my little bosom buddy and don’t leave home without it.  ;)
