The Plunge

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!

Dude, that thing looks awesome. Fantastic investment in my opinion. I hope it helps!! Have you liked or tried any of the recipes I've sent? The Tuscan Minstrone was really good but be careful not to put the veggies in the food processor like I did.

How much did you end up paying for it?

I'm interested in how it works for you.

That is so cool. I kind of want one. I have the Nike+ chip for my iPod and I love it. It records how fast/far/etc I run/walk. It's pretty cool, but I'm thinking this is cooler. Does it shock you when you go over your caloric intake? That would be even cooler!
