"10,000 steps in a day? Fuck it, I'll walk everywhere! I'll walk to work! I'll walk to the MOON if I have to."

1. You bought your Fitbit with the intention that you were going to start a better, healthier life and become a "new person".

I believe they call this period "seeing the light".

2. So you could 100% justify splashing out on it.

Because let's face it, Fitbits aren't particularly cheap, but they are clever (and kinda cute).

3. Reaching your step goal means walking has a whole new meaning.

5. You've followed all of your friends with Fitbits too.

10. And you've started to see no point in exercising unless your Fitbit is tracking it.

11. So when you forget it at home, it's an absolute disaster.

What's even the point of moving anymore?

12. Getting your first badge makes you feel prouder than you're willing to admit.

I took 15,000 steps and earned the Urban Boot badge! #Fitbit

13. And whenever you don't reach your goals it's almost as if you can feel your Fitbit judging you.
