I know this is a Bodybugg thread, but is anyone familiar with the Actitrainer? It's basically the same thing, with some different features, and it's cheaper. I am thinking about buying one, but I want to find someone who has had it for awhile and is still using it consistently, to give some feedback first...

Ok Im so sad ok maybe not so sad perhaps a little jealous. Friend of mine who lives in Austin Tx just bought one at 24 hr fitness for 249.00 there on sale there yet because Im in the north east and have to buy directly from body bugg they cost 399. plus shipping so unfair. oh well had to vent but Im still saving up I just finished paying off for a years gym membership so I'll have to wait a little bit.

Whooo hoooo!! I finally got my bodybugg and set everything up last night. It did take a bit to set up, just time consuming, not really difficult. I wore it to bed last night and I just downloaded my calories burned to date and whoa, I was pleasantly surprised! Its not too complicated to use and even now, I forget its there. My hubby calls it my lady bodybugg hump! lol!

FYI - I'm in Vancouver, Canada and I purchased the new system on ebay and set up everything with the trainer last night on the phone. Seems to be working fine and hopefully that continues! I will let you know how it goes.

I have had this for an entire week now and I LOVE it! I'm finding myself marching in place on my mini trampoline, dancing with my 2 year old-anything to reach my daily total! This is such a great inspiration and toy!!! Yeah Bodybugg...:clap2:

I guess the price of the bugg is nothing compared to all of the money I have spent on diets and exercise programs. I think though with all the advertising that the bodybugg should give us each one for free! LOL

It is great!! I love it!! Wear it everday....even on my bad days when I don't reach goal because of a 9 hour meeting, where I have to sit the whole time, I can see what my body is doing. I've learned that my job is so bad for me. I only burn 72cal/hr while in a meeting. It sucks and by the time I get home, I'm dead from it. But, still logging everything and I know when I'm not losing..why I'm not!! Plus, it's that time of the month. UGH. So, when that's over, can't wait to get this going in my favor again. LOL!!

OK, I'm with the rest of you. I'm a BUGG ADDICT and it's only been 2 days! This thing is so cool. It motivated me to clean my house last night while watching tv rather than sit on the sofa. Then I jumped rope for 10 minutes just before bed -- not enough to sweat, just enough to burn a quick 50 cals or so. So cool!

I'll be interested to see how closely the scale matches what the bugg says. I know I'll have to judge it more weekly (or monthly) than daily -- I tend to lose nothing then lose 3 or so lbs all in one chunk.

I know my input is very accurate at the moment -- I only eat things I know the calorie content of (just for a couple of weeks while I'm breaking this plateau -- normally I do regular things too, like eat out). What I question is the accuracy of the bugg on what I burn. It seems spot on, but I don't understand the science behind it. I saw somewhere that it is advertised as being 92% accurate, which would be GREAT if that's true, but apparently they didn't test this exact model (if the article is to be believed) -- they tested a model that also used a heart rate monitor.

Anyway, I'm enjoying it, and if anyone has seen a good article on the science/accuracy of the bugg, I'd love to see it.

I just got my BB too! I'm going to set it up in a little while. I think this will be a helpful thread. I'll let you know any tips the personal trainer gives me. Pass on what you learn. Hope this helps me break my platueau! Good luck everyone!

I received my Body Bugg last Friday. I absolutely love it. It takes all the guess work out of dieting and exercise. I know when I have been active enough and when I need to get busy. Since last Friday I have lost five pounds!:whoo:

Okay BB users I just tried to activate my bugg and answered truthfully that I had had weight loss surgery. It won't let me go any further. I called the help line number, but I just had to leave a message. Did not get a real person. Did this happen to any of you? Please advise.

This happened to me to. I went back and changed it to say that I had not had surgery and it worked fine. When the coach called on Monday I told her about it, she said that it was supposed to bring up a waiver for us to sign.

Well, my BodyBugg was right on track with the scale this morning. I only have 0.4 to lose to drop down into the next weight "decade" so you'd better bet I'm going to do the math on that today! I hope it's as consistent tomorrow....I don't trust it (or really, more my body) yet.

      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.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
