Hi, well, I've been reading the bodybugg reports and finally got one after not being able to lose a pound after 6 weeks. I was banded on February 13, 2007. At that time, I weighed 271.4. Six weeks ago, I weighed in at 246 and went back up to 249 due to fat loss/muscle gain. (Not complaining there) that is where I stayed until now. I wasn't depressed since I thought I was doing everything right. I was eating less and excercising more. Well, at least that is what I thought until I got the bodybugg. Pudin' was a big inspiration for that one. I've had the BB for 3 days now and I finally broke through the plateu. I'm right back to 246 with more fat loss and muscle gain. It's so exciting.

I guess I needed lapband and armband. I'm just banded everywhere. LOL!! It really is motivating to see where you are at with the numbers. Even though I was exercising my butt off, it still wasn't enough and now, I know how much more I have to exercise through the day. It's fun to see the scale going down again. Finally!!!

Anyways, I think we should log our stats for the bodybugg on here. It's really fun!!

So far, 3lb weight loss on the bodybugg/lapband from June 4-7. YEAH!!!

I'd never heard of this until I read your post...so I looked it up (BODYBUGG :: HOW IT WORKS). It seems like s'thing I may want to invest in. I'm gonna poke around their site a little more.

I went back and forth on getting one for over a month because I really did not want to spend that much money on it. But, after not losing, I decided that I really needed to see what my body was doing since I thought I was doing everything right.

I'm so glad I did. If only I purchased it sooner, I would be so many more lbs off the scale. Oh, well...it's moving now.

You know, I walked 2 miles a day and went to the gym during that 6 weeks I wasn't losing. But, for my body, it still wasn't enough. Now, with the bodybugg stats, I'v learned that sitting at my desk only burns 1.3 calories but if I get up and pace during a telecon meeting, I burn over 8 calorie a minute. Last night when I downloaded my stats, it showed me that I had 700 more calories to burn to meet my goal. So, I went for a walk, did aerobics and finally met my 1000 calorie deficit! It's so amazing. This morning, I was down another 1lb.

So, that brings me to a total of 4.2lbs lost for good this week. I have to say that the BB is worth the money. I think I'm going to start calling it BB KING!! LOL!! It rules!

If you are going back and forth, just get it. You'll be glad..I was. Okay, I sound like a commercial. LOL!

You're doing a good job w/the advertising! LOL! I was thinking it was a little expensive, but sounds like it would be worth it.

Hi All,

I just purchased the body bugg.. now anxiously waiting for its arrival! Please tell me that its that easy in that you don't have to log all your food daily? If you don't log your food daily, is it still as accurate?

I can't remember the name of it, but someone got something similar that cost's about $100 less.

Congrats on getting one!!

If you know how many calories you are eating a day, you don't have to. However, you won't be able to see your deficit unless you log your calories. Oh, and they have many foods in there. It only take a minute to log your food. Really easy. I hated logging food until I got this. Now, it's motivational to see that if I eat 100 more calories that I will have to work out more or I can eat that extra 100 calories because I have banked more calories burned. It will give you the stats. But, I don't think it will be as accurate without logging your food.

These are my stats so far today: 2271 Calories burned, 1302 calories consumed, 969 deficit. I want to stay around 1000 calorie deficit. As long as I keep a deficit, I will lose weight. So, I'm going to have dinner now and then go for a walk. As you can see, it won't take much to keep my deficit for the day and I've eaten many calories today. I love knowing. It's awesome.

Excellent job... keep up the good work...clearly its working!! I can't wait to take the guess work out of loosing weight. I was thinking about it and when I was on Jenny Craig or WW or any other diet program, I wouldn't weight myself all week and at the end of the week it was a total surprise at how much weight I had either gained or lost. I think I'm going to love knowing day by day where I stand calorie wise and not having that surprise at the end of the week.

Thanks for the good advise... I think I'll log my food to be able to see the deficit! *squeel*...can't wait!

bodybugg is the best! I had surgery 10 months and 7 days ago and I have lost 106 lbs with the help of that. I was not doing well the first 5 months, and then the body bugg helped me with that (and also restriction) but it really does help you see the reality of what you eat vs. what you burn. IT'S WONDERFUL!!! and very eye opening.

I love hearing this!! YEAH!! I know, I'm going on my 4th month post-op and couldn't beleive that most of my weight loss was right after surgery. I definitely need the two things. It's funny...today, I got my hair done. Usually, while I'm under the hair dryer, my stylist will be working on somebody else. Today, I went out and walked around the outside to let my hair dry naturally. I walked for about 10-15 minutes and burned about 100 calories doing that..vs. sitting in the chair. She thought it was great!! LOL!! And, I got more movement in today and burned more. I love this bodybugg. I'm now down over 6 lbs this week alone and I really don't feel like I'm eating differently..I'm just moving differently now. It's nice to know that once I reach my defecit, I can choose to either eat and work out more or just stop right there. Yes, very eye opening.

It is so much better that all the diet programs I have ever been on...this and being banded! Love it!

I can't wait until you get yours!! You are going to love it. It really does take the guess work out. This, along with my lapband, has really been my "Ah Ha" moment in my life. I'll look better and feel better in my late 30's than I did in my 20's. Technology is excellent! You'll love the stats!! "squeeling" with you!! LOL!!

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.
