A Fun Health Product: the Nokia Go
What Got Me Going?
My local supermarket has a fitness machine that measures my blood pressure, weight, pulse, Body Mass Index, hydration, and body fat. It also tells me that I am overweight and "at risk."
It doesn't get me off my duff and moving.
Taking one of its weekly challenges, I won a device that does: the Nokia Go.
This black fitness wristband stares back at me waiting to record my day's walking steps, the hours of sleep I get, and my pulse as often as I want to register it. Then it congratulates me on the days I meet my daily walking goal of 8,000 steps (3.5 miles.)
I set my own adjustable goal, and you can too, but having it as a goal and working to visibly record my progress was just the little extra I needed to set the goal and work to achieve it.

Where Do I Find It and What Does It Cost?
I won mine as a prize. If I had bought one it would have cost me $49.95 (US) retail. Just go to Nokia/Products in your search engine, look for their Nokia Go, and the rest is a few data entries and clicks.
While you are there, you will find a whole variety of their HealthMate products of equal interest that I myself may explore soon, but the Nokia Go has me started on a sure path to even better health.
I want to re-lose 12 pounds, and I know how to do it, having done it before. It was just too easy to get out of the habit of daily exercise, limiting empty sugar calories, and reducing stress while keeping hydrated and properly nourished.
It's not quite like tying a string around my finger, but it's a whole lot more comfortable and effective.
I can no longer say, "I never won anything." While it may not be lifetime dollars from a publisher's clearing house or a state lottery, a longer, healthier life is definitely worth its weight in gold.
