I am really interested in getting a Body Bugg. Can anyone tell me more on it or let me know if it is really worth it? I have lost 75 lbs and still have a ways to go. I have struggled with the same 5 lbs for two months. Need something to get me going again.

It's on sale right now at CostCo and I really want one. I hope people speak up and tell us if it's worth it!

A couple friends like it but they are real competitive. I wanted one for Chirstmas but we can't find them around here only online. I am looking for them now and that is how I found this website. Goodluck

I have a GoWear Fit, which is the same as the body bugg except that it also monitors sleep efficiency. I absolutely love knowing exactly how many calories I burn when exercising, and during the day in general. The online food tracker is pretty good also.

I am curious about the GoWear Fit.
Can you give me more insight?

I have a BodyBugg, with the digital display...what I love is the little alarms I get when i reach my goal for the day (calorie and activity...I still haven't made 10000 steps) -- and you can adjust your goals on the website.

Samantha - The GoWear Fit is pretty much the exact same thing as the bodybugg as far as I know. The only extra thing is it tells you how many hours you actually slept and gives a chart showing when you were sleeping, just laying down, or up. It also has a website that costs so much per month (I think I pay around $6/month) where you upload all the data and can also track all your meals. I also bought the digital display so that I can track my progress throughout the day so that I don't have to wait to upload the info. Hope this helps.

Another fan here... used it to lose the last 50lbs out of 113lbs. I feel it helps keep you on Target more and encourages you to be more active throughout the whole day.

About the food tracking--this is something I struggle with now--if I don't know the exact calories of the food--what's the best way to estimate to keep accurate records for the bugg or GFW?

The bodybugg will estimate what you've eaten by comparing your weekly burn with your actual weight loss, but to make the most of the system you really need to either record your food into the online thing... or at least give it a total calories for the day so you have to track calories one way or another. That means weighing, measuring, reading packaging, and looking up stuff you don't know. It's tedious but you get used to it and once your most commonly used foods are entered in... it's not much of a hassle.

When you don't know the calories for something you just pick something similar that it already knows. For example no idea what the supermarket pizza was I had a few days back so I typed in pizza and just picked a medium slice from a known place.

I know keeping track sounds like a pain, but consider that most sucessful maintainers STILL track their foods. There must be something to it. Mindfulness is a great tool.

I'm thinking about getting one too, or more likely the GWF since I can get that on Amazon and I have a giftcard for some of it.

I was wondering about the foods - I am using Fitday already and don't necessarily want to switch since I have a lot of history in there. It sounds like all the BB/GFW tracks is the total number of calories and I could just plug that in after I input my food on Fitday?

And as long as I'm posting, seems like there are fans of both BB and GFW. Any significant advantages or disadvantages to either one?

This is the one thing that has really helped me realize and be super conscious of what I put in my mouth. Before getting my GWF I had been dieting for 3 months and had lost 49 pounds but I wasn't monitoring or recording what I ate. Around mid-January I hit a plateau and didn't lose a pound. I broke down and ordered the GWF. I have now had my GWF for 2 weeks and I am soooo much more aware of what I am eating now and have lost 8 pounds since I put it on. At first what seemed like a hassle is now my favorite thing about it.

I absolutely LOVE my body bugg. I have lost 52 lbs while wearing it. I now have my diabetes under full control and no longer have to go to a diabetes specialist. I am awware of what I eat and move more. as a result, the neuroapathy is leaving my feet and getting better.

I would advise anyone and everyone who is serious about their health to invest in one.

I found mine on ebay for about 100 bucks. (it is the older version, but works fine)

I absolutely love my BodyBugg. However, it is the older version and I was considering upgrading to the newer one. While researching, I heard that the GFW monitors sleep. Is this true and if so, how accurate.

Also, I am very anal about recording everything I eat every single meal. Will GFW allow me to do this? or can only only record 3 days worth or 3 days at a time?

Also, what color is the latest and greast GFW? Black or gray/silver?

Thanks for your help.
