I want one sooo bad...I just can't afford it right now w/all this pre-op stuff I've got going on. Once I get my claims back from my insurance, maybe I can put it towards my BB. Hmm...that's an idea.

You guys are making me jealous.

OK, I totally walked home from work today (I usually take the bus or a cab) -- 3 miles -- solely to see the numbers on my body bugg go up.

WOOHOO, what a motivator!

(Chimboree, most of us are really new to the BB. While you're saving up, tell yourself that you're waiting 3 or 4 weeks to make sure we're all still as enthusiastic about it once the novelty wears off. Does that help?)

LOL! That works for me.

*note to self* 'Yeah, that's what I'm doing ...waiting to see if the novelty wears off...' :confused:

I've had mine for 2 weeks now and my love has deepened! I'm understanding it better and able to maneuver more accurately through the program. (I've changed my goal three times LOL) anyway I haven't lost any weight yet, but i"ve increased my activity by about 75% from what I was doing so far, so my theory is that i'm putting on muscle and i'm NOT going to worry about the numbers on the scale just yet, this is amazing how much it motivates me to burn that last 200 calories each evening. I mean who ever thought or knew they had 200 calories left to burn before going to bed each night? so cooooooolllll

I've got to say, the Bugg did help me break my 2 month plateau. I was at 172 for 2 months. Mostly my fault -- I wasn't tracking cals in. Still getting a lot of exercise, but not maximizing it.

Anyway, today -- 4 days into the Bugg -- 167. PFOOY on the plateau! I'll show you who's boss! Wink.

This is a great thread! I love my Bodybugg (thanks to puddin' also). When I do what I'm supposed to and use this tool, it really works. (Hmm, sounds familiar...)

The combination of the band and the bugg are what help me.

When I set up everything on my BB it said I should be eating 1800 calories a day. So I increased the amount of weight per week and it said I should it 1500. I haven't had a session with a counselor yet, but this seems pretty high. I am exercising quite a bit. What is everyone's opinion? Also, any tricks for getting all the food into the journal. I guess it just takes time, but it seems a bit awkard. Feed back appreciated.

I don't focus on how many calories it says I should eat. My goal is to have a deficit of at least 1000 calories a day. If I get that, I am fine.

As for the food journal, it is a bit cumbersome at first. However, if you eat the same foods each week, once you've entered them (if they are not on BB's list) it gets easier.

Just a question:

Do you tell it how much you want to lose, by a certain date, and it will figure out the calories in/out you need to make that goal? Or does it figure out what you need to do for food/exercise to lose the 'healthy' rate of about 2 lbs a week, whether you want to lose that speed or not?

An update for any Canadians lurking here: I emailed BodyBugg again, and they told me it was made available to us as of yesterday, and the proper person will be contacting me soon to tell me how to order it. I don't know if the price will be the same. Even though I have a Mac, there IS a way to make it work... it's just kind of a pain in the butt. I still might go through with it.

Another thing though... the update that's coming at the end of August, I was told, will "include a device that will interact with the bodybugg, allowing a limited data display on a device similar to a wrist watch." I wonder how much more that would cost. It would be nice to be able to see immediate numbers of calories burned, at any time. I might just hold out and see what comes of this new thingy!

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
