you can get it to work without bootcamp or parallel? I have a power pc mac (the first generation version) but never use my pc side. I'm very interested in the BB but am a mac person all the way

Yeah, apparently it will work with Bootcamp or Parallels, but I really don't want to have to do that.

I think that the vest comes in larger sizes. You can check out the website at Walkvest. I'm amazed at how a small amount of weight makes the walker so much harder. Imagine how much harder we were working before we lost a little weight!

Wow that sounds like it's pretty challenging. I would love to try one, but not sure I want to invest in more stuff right now. Update us on your progress with this.

i'd love to do it, but it is pretty pricey and i honestly dont think the XXL would fit me .. so i will just strap weights to my arms or ankles ... maybe later

I have a question with the body bugg. Is this something you keep on all day. I was wondering if you wear it to work? Is it noticeable? For those of you who say you want to keep a 1000 deficiet is that 30 minute workout plus just moving around all day? What kind of weight loss with this deficiet?

Sorry for all the questions but I am very curious about this.

hi Val,

i wear it from the moment i get out of bed until i go to sleep at night. i initially thought it was going to bother me, but i dont even notice it anymore. i do wear it under my sleeves. it is a bit bulky and sometimes you can see it if i am in short sleeves, but i just tell people it's a calorie management device and if i eat more than 100 calories, it sends an electric shock through my system ... LMAO.... but then i really explain it and they think it's cool.

i have been eating horribly so i'm not really able to give good advice about the deficit. when i was being a good bandster, it really helped me out.

good luck!

Ok....I've been following you guys with this thing for awhile now. Who is still using it consistently and who has put it aside??

Mine is still fairly new about three weeks, but right now I can't imagine that I will ever put mine aside unless I am at goal weight (maybe not even then). The Body Bugg has helped me almost as much as the band. But if a person isn't committed to logging every bite they put in their mouth, it will not work.

I'm done with whining about NOT losing weight. I know in advance if my eating and exercise will result in a weight loss for the week. Without the BB it is so easy for me to deceive myself into thinking that I have did ok, when I really haven't. I love it, love it, love it!

I find that I wear it for about 5 days, then take it off for a day or two, usually because there's something I can't control in my diet and if you can't do both parts (calories burned AND calories consumed), it's not worth wearing it. However, when my social schedule is such that I know I can control my calories precisely, I love wearing the bugg. It motivates me to move more and is a constant reminder of my goals. I need that, particularly when faced with the vending machine, etc. I definitely lose more weight when wearing it.

I am wearing the BB everyday and I'm having sucess. I am really learning about what it takes to lose the weight and why I wasn't losing in the past few months. My resting metabolic rate isn't that fast. I have a trainer now who is helping me build muscle so I will have a faster RMR. The only difficulty I have is figuring out how to log things when I go out to eat. I google calories for a particular dish and put the values in but of course it's only a guesstimate. I figure it is better than nothing and I try to control portions. This week was my birthday and I've had several Desserts. I have worked out more, but one day I didn't meet my goal. I know that if I don't lose as much weight this week I have only myself to blame. I love this tool. It gives you immediate feedback and has taught me alot. Like to just move more!

Karey, how is the weighted vest doing? I am considering making one for myself out of an old hiking backpack and some weights. I have also heard that if you bundle up and sweat during a workout you will burn more calories. Does anyone know if there is any truth to this?

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
