I'm Just a Fat Girl Wearing an Apple 'Fitness' Watch
My first fitness watch was a Fitbit. I was working out like a madwoman back then, circa 2016. I was hot off the heels of my most recent breakup, and I was pouring all the time I used to spend moping and arguing into kickboxing, weightlifting, and speedwalking.
