My Fitbit experience: Lost 27 pounds, gained a lot of questions

Back in March, I wrote about how Fitbit and Pebble had changed my view of wearable devices, turning me from a skeptic into a promoter. I also wrote about how easy it was for me to to get hooked on activity-tracking as a wellness tool. Although I'd bought my Fitbit to encourage me to be more active, I hadn't really planned on using it specifically as a weight loss solution. I figured I probably would lose some weight, but setting a goal or actively tracking calories wasn't part of my intention, though the Fitbit app does include an excellent database for calorie tracking.
Setting all those questions aside, however, I have no plans of ditching my Fitbit anytime soon and I already foresee myself linking to iOS 8's Health app the day Apple launches it. I may have lost 27 pounds, but that doesn't I'm resting on and activity laurels.
