UP helped me reduce my weight by 20%—and keep it off. I lost 35 pounds, reduced my cholesterol by 30% and dropped my resting heart rate by 30%.

I always thought I was in reasonable shape, but with a growing family and frequent business travel my weight gradually increased over the years. Upon reaching a maximum weight of 195, it was time to do something about it. The Jawbone UP2 provided the insight and focus to create a discipline of moving. The daily alerts and tracking provided the insight to motivate me to walk 30–60 minutes a day. The sleep tracking provided the insight to create healthier sleeping habits and the silent alarm feature allows me to wake up at the best point in the sleep cycle without waking my wife. (Happy wife, happy life after all.)

Regular exercise and better sleep, combined with a better diet were the key in transforming my health. UP helped me reduce my weight by 20%—and keep it off. Over the course of 9 months I lost 35 pounds, reduced my cholesterol by 30% and dropped my resting heart rate by 30%. Better yet, I've been able to maintain my weight for over two years. Today, I feel healthier and have more energy than I've had in many years. My doctor says I've added at least 10 years to my life. I shared my personal experience with friends and family and my wife was able to achieve similar results after just six months.
