As many of you know, I am pregnant (I am having the baby September 26th!) and it is especially important for me to stay fit so that I can have a healthy pregnancy, an easier recovery, and so I can hopefully bounce back to my pre-baby weight faster.  When I was 28-weeks along, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes.  I was upset about that, but this made my fitness even more of a priority as I was determined to control my blood sugar with strict diet and exercise.  The Jawbone UP was a DEFINITE help in this regard as it made me very mindful of how many steps I was taking each day, what I was eating and when,  and of how much rest I was getting.  I have been very lucky that despite the diabetes I have felt wonderful throughout this pregnancy.  Now that I am on the last week before baby arrives, I am very happy to report that I have been able to avoid diabetes medications and insulin through careful blood sugar control.  I really think it would have been way harder without the Jawbone UP.  I plan to continue using it every day after she is born so that I can stay on the healthy track that the diabetes forced me to be on.  In all honesty, it was a true blessing in disguise.

If you are interested in getting healthy and making it easier to stay healthy, I TOTALLY recommend the Jawbone UP!  Check out the Jawbone UP at Best Buy!  Live Better.  Start Now.

UPDATE January 2014:  Baby is so darling.  I am recovering from a C-section still but the Jawbone UP is definitely helping me be aware that I need to move my body.  It is also reminding me that I am sleep deprived LOL!

UPDATE January 2015:  Baby is now 15-months-old and I am STILL using my Jawbone UP!  It has helped me to lose the baby weight plus more, and I have NO trouble getting in my 10,000 steps a day while keeping up with a very busy toddler!
