I got the Jawbone Up 3 weeks ago and it motivates me like nothing else ever has to walk a little more. I am totally surprising everyone that knows me because I just want to get out and walk. I am feeling better than I have in a long time. Of course I know a bad flare can hit at any time, and even on my bad days I try to get at leat 5000 steps in around the house. Lofe the Up but am having some problems with the App... am considering returning it for the Fitbit or Polar Loop.

I have mine ordered and look forward to getting it. And yes, it encourages me, whether it is seeing the next mile, the next 1000th step, or the next 100.

I have a fitbit one, for me I like that I can see how many steps I have taken, and how many miles I have walked. Sometimes what motivates is seeing that I am so close to another mile I will then walk around to get that mile. I also like having the sleep tracker on it, which confirms that I don't sleep good, in that I wake up several times each night.

In my struggle to get up and move this bod, knowing that in doing so I will feel better, one of my best friends and sources of support has been my pedometer. It has given me a goal to strive for that has visible proof of progress.

When I started, I was barely able to do 2000 steps per day because of tiredness and pain. As I have worked to increase that, though my pain is not always less, it is not worse, and I feel better because my body is getting good things it needs: movement.

A ped can be purchased fairly inexpensively at most any department store. The less expensive ones are less accurate than the more expensive ones because they are hyper sensitive to movement, but they serve the purpose of giving us an idea of where we are now, and helping us get where we want to be. It is an investment worth making.
