I took the plunge, with the blessing of my husband, and got myself a bodybugg. I believe I've mentioned this little unit before, but I finally got one and we are now calling the bodybugg my Mother's Day gift.
Here is what my bugg looks like:
My bugg tracks calories burned. After I've worn the little unit for a while on the backside of my left arm I can plug it into my computer and download my info. I can see how many calories I burn as I sit around, how many I burn when doing laundry, gardening, or exercise. This thing rocks and I have great plans for serious weight loss!
The bugg has a goal for calories burned, calorie intake, and a calorie deficit. My deficit goal is 1000 every day, which will average me out to a 2 pound weight loss every week.
You see, my surgery helps me not to binge....but it doesn't make me want to exercise. And I can still overeat the wrong kinds of foods. I've been doing great on my own, but the progress is a bit slow. Hopefully I can ramp up my losses and get this show on the road already!
