UP MOVE Black Burst

I was diagnosed with a fibroid and my weight just shot up to my heaviest ever over a year. UP MOVE has totally changed my life.

I am a 42-year-old in my fifth year competing at Irish short circuits on my Honda 400. At the start of 2015, I was diagnosed with a fibroid and my weight just shot up to my heaviest ever over a year. At the end of the race season, I could hardly fit into my leather suit; I felt so demoralised and racing wasn't comfortable in a suit I could hardly breath in. For the new year, I decided I had to do something and bought a Jawbone UP MOVE. I have used it every day since January logging my food, steps, exercise and sleep.

Since using the UP MOVE, I have learned about my food and calories, how sleep affects my weight, and how inactive I had been. It really pushes me to be more active, take more steps, burn those extra calories—and I have now lost 11 pounds. My breathing is easier, I am fitter than I have ever been, and I have brought my BMI down from 30 to 28. I still have a way to go to get my BMI down to my ideal range for my height (e.g a BMI of 25) but UP MOVE will be with me every step of the way. It has totally changed my life and my daily health choices and has helped me achieve my current weight loss.
