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.

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
