'Apple Watch, New Year's Resolutions, and Losing 50 Pounds'

Nice story by Zac Hall at 9to5 Mac:

Apple Watch has absolutely been an effective motivational coach that has pushed me toward my goal of being more active. Below I’ll detail my experience and share some of what I’ve learned along my journey.

One of my biggest personal achievements, lifestyle-wise, in 2016 was I eliminated soda from my diet. I used to be a hardcore junkie, downing glass after glass, day after day. I finally decided I'd had enough, so I resolved to quit drinking it. With the help of Water Minder on my iPhone and Apple Watch, all I drink now—coffee aside—is water. I feel healthier, more hydrated, and have completely lost my taste for soda. I'll have some every now and then, and I don't like the flavor nor the carbonation. I'm very proud of myself.
