My bodybugg arrived today!! I am very excited although it was a pain getting it set up and registered. I guess I should have read past the registration card and into the book where it said only compatible with explorer and safari browser. Anyway, it is currently charging and I am looking forward to getting started. I also purchased the digital display as I like the idea of instant knowledge. I think it will keep me accountable. I used this thread in my research into whether to purchase the bodybugg so thanks to all who posted!

I just gon mine today, too! So far so good. It's fun and I think I'll beat my goal for today? Unfortunately, I got it after I already went to the gym, but it's still good. What is your goal for calories. I'm trying to get an excess of 1400 calories burned. So, that's 2800 burned and 1400 consumed (I still don't really have restriction, only 2 ccs). I hope this accountability and motivation continues.

Yay another bugg newbie! So far I love it! I have been obsessed with watching the display today and realized just how sedentary my job is. I plan to make myself get up and walk around the office every hour. Get those numbers moving. I am shooting for a 1500 calorie deficit which I beat today by 400 calories. One thing I was surprised at is that I am burning MORE calories than the treadmill, bike etc. say. I always knew the machines were inaccurate but thought the machines would be an over estimate not under. That made me happy. Best if luck Bella!

So, my first day wearing my bugg. The back of my arm is totally chafed (sp?) and sore. I really want to wear it when I sleep, but I might need to let my arm take a break. I've been moving it up and down my arm, but it still hurts. I haven't even worn it all day because I only got it at about 11: 30 this morning. It hurts at the inside of my arm, not where the bugg sits, weird. But, at least I exceeded my goal!!! We went out to dinner, so I had to guestimate the calories consumed, but I think I was good. We'll see.

Okay, so that was just while I was working out to Just Dance 2 (Wii) and a little after. The next day was fine and has been since. I think I was wearing mine too high on my arm.

I have had my BB for two weeks now. If anything, I have gained. My pants are tighter although the scale has not moved up or down. I know I am gaining muscle galore as I am walking and cycling like crazy (11,000 steps plus a day). I have a deficit of anywhere from 600 to 1300 a day but still no loss. I am highly frustrated, disappointed, to the point of crying, whatever you want to call it, just don't call it happy at this point.

Sorry, just needed to vent. I am lost as to what to do next.

I am wondering if you have any symptoms of hyperthyroidism? That was my problem and finally after months and months I have began to lose weight.

I got my Body Bugg a week ago and I love it. Very comfortable! I love how the increase in calories burned goes up at exactily the same time that I'm doing some activity...I need some proof that it worked.

During my this first week, I've lost 4 lbs. Even with a special dinner out with my daughter planned, I was able to earn the extra calories needed. The only time I don't wear it is when sleeping.

I received my BodyBugg yesterday. Slept with it on last night - no problem. It's cool how it shows you whether your sleep is restful. I love LoseIt for calorie tracking and weigh ins (I have a Withings scale that reports that information to LoseIt wirelessly - that is a cool product for those who love gadgets!). I am just planning to use the daily calorie estimate on the BB website instead of logging meals because all my historical data is in LoseIt. I emailed BodyMedia to see if there is a way to import it - they said there is not.

Either way, I can't wait to put this thing to good use!

Anyone have any tips on making the most of the BodyBugg?

I've heard about this. I currently have a polar heart rate monitor which shows actual calories burned, I use it when I work out. Is this better? Someone said they spent $300? Is that really how much it is?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      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.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      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
