It only takes a hop, skip, jump and a whole lotta steps to get up to Fitbit HQ in SF. I’m giving a talk later on my favorite health and fitness tips. Got a question for me? Post it in the comments and tune back in later to see if I answer it on Fitbit’s Instagram story. - @harleypasternak
"I’d definitely say there's an old me and a new me. I used to weigh 218 pounds. I was completely sedentary. I lost myself, and I ate my way through every difficulty I was experiencing. As my weight ballooned, my confidence, and my personality, and myself, disappeared. When I was finally diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I cried. I think the general attitude was, you’re not going to fix it. I knew I had to do something. I had to stop thinking that I had to help everyone else, and I had to start doing some things for myself. My father loves all things innovative, and he gave me his Fitbit when he upgraded. The device really gave me a reality check on the amount of food I was eating, and how much I wasn’t moving. It gave me the feedback I needed. Now I’ve lost 79 lbs and I cannot tell you how different it feels to be the person I am now. The energy I feel is incredible. It’s not an option to give up. It’s not an option to go back." - Rachel W., New Zealand #MyReasonIs #WorldDiabetesDay
