Default Anyone up for another BodyBugg/GWF/Sensewear etc. challenge?

Hi everyone,

I was so inspired by your summer challenge (ended early June) and at the same time sooo sad that I had missed out. For once, rather than sit on my lovely behind and wait for someone else to start a challenge, I thought I'd start one myself - and of course anyone is more than welcome to join in (and please do! It will be very lonely, and not to mention boring without you!)

I've had my GWF for about 6 months but have never really pushed myself to use it properly. About 4 days ago I put my GWF on for the first time in literally months, and I am going well so far. Here's to challenging myself to finally get in shape and stay that way!

If anyone else is up for joining the challenge, I thought we could basically follow the same plan that the previous challengers used i.e.

Rules of the challenge are:
(1) We will post our stats weekly on Wednesdays, starting June 23rd
(2) The challenge period ends October 20th - 17 weeks
(3) We will motivate each other
(4) We will have fun!

What do you think?

Welcome FloridayGirl - I think the very nature of us being on this forum shows we all needs support

Great to have you MollyMai and DewDrop!

I live in Australia aka 'the future' - i.e. it's already Wednesday here. So I will get the ball rolling with my stats.

Current weight: 142.4 lb
Goal weight: 125.4 lb
Challenge goal: 17 lb i.e. 1 lb per wk.. I think it's something I can sustain

Good luck to everyone. I'm looking forward to sharing this challenge with you!

Hi nurse2be! I ordered mine from the 24 Hour Fitness site. It was $229 for both the BodyBugg and the digital display that you wear on your wrist, plus six months of access to their site. There was a coupon code to use (AFPBGD1) which made it a little cheaper. I don't know if you can possibly just go to 24 Hour Fitness and buy one there.

Good Morning all!! I am reluctantly posting my first week challenge numbers. Today is the last day of my second week wearing my GWF. Week 1 was good, but week 2 has been disappointing. Despite what should be a 1.5lb lose based on my GWF numbers, I actually have gained. I am hoping it is a TOM thing!

Current weight: 270 lb
Goal weight: 140 lb
Challenge goal: 249 lb (approx 1.25 lbs/wk)

Good Luck to everyone and I hope everyone has a really GREAT Wednesday!
