  • A bodybugg is a calorie tracking device that is worn on your tricep. It has sensors that track your caloric burn and your daily steps. I also count calories and upload to their website ( daily. It tracks everything for you. It has been invaluable for myself and my husband- he has lost over 70 lbs and I've lost almost 45.
    The contestants on The Biggest Loser use bodybuggs- that is where we first learned about them. We love our little pals- we each have one.. they are about $200 a piece, but so worth it!

  • Good for you!! That's very inspirational to hear! I started really trying and sticking to eating a well-balanced meal (before I really didn't eat much) and exercise everyday and started taking karate. It;s been about 7 weeks or so and I've lost about 13 lbs.

  • I started my journey in December and hit a plateau many times now...
    When I started I was 5'1", 167 lbs, BMI of over 30, a size 12 and miserable. I bought a bodybugg and it has made all the difference in the world! I have lost 44.6 lbs as of this morning. I am now a size 7 in juniors, 6 in women's, small shirts instead of XL - which I love!, and I've lost well over 20 inches from my body. When I weighed this morning I was at 122.6 lbs. My goal weight is 111-117. I only have 5 lbs to get to the high end of my goal weight, but I'm striving for the 10 lbs mark!
    I eat well and work out intensely 6 days a week. I lost over 2 lbs this week.
