A Hiss and a Roar
Grant Bason, 57, from the Bay of Plenty, tells his story.
A couple of years ago I learned through my GP that I have type 2 diabetes. I was feeling listless and lacking in energy but it was a total surprise when the blood tests came back. With a hiss and a roar, as I usually do, I dieted, exercised and controlled my food intake and weight well. But then I had a minor operation that put me off work for four weeks. Over this period, I fell back into bad habits of little exercise and poor eating. I put the weight back on and my blood sugar levels were very high.
Winning a Fitbit motivated me to become healthier.
It has helped very much in
my exercise planning, gives me a digital read out and diary via my iPhone and desktop PC. I love seeing the running total over time.
