Great News! I got my Body Bugg on Thursday of last week. I was very happy to see it and I started wearing it on Friday morning. I was excited to see that the band actually fit. (I worry about weird stuff like that) It is surprisingly unnoticeable to me (pretty comfy for an armband with a mini computer attached) mostly, except when I am tempted by food and then there it is to tell me , "hey if you want that, its cool, but you understand it will mean time on the treadmill later." I am even sleeping in it without a problem. Also, surprisingly, only one person has noticed it and asked about it in the last five days. It is fairly inconspicuous. As of this morning I have averaged a deficit of a little over 800 calories a day so it will be interesting to see how the weigh in goes Friday morning. I wish the website was a little more user friendly but other than that I am impressed and pleased so far.
Friday night we went to A**lebees for dinner for our weekly date night (yes my sweetheart spoils me! Thanks babe!) and asked for the nutritional info on our food. They wouldn't give us a print out of everything but told us after we ordered (made for choosing what we wanted a little difficult but nothing we couldn't work with) they could bring us the info. I was shocked! Our appetizer was 1200 cals my grilled chicken sandwich with fries (yep fries are of the devil) was 1200 cals and Jason's meal was 1500 something cals! I only ate half of my sandwich and a few fries and half the appetizer and when I downloaded my cals burned and entered the food I had eaten I had a surplus of 37 cals. I spent some time on the treadmill and brought it down to a 300 deficit but I definitely learned something that evening about food.
Also for you wii fans out there we finally found wii fit in stock at Best Buy and picked it up. The whole family is working with it and it has been fun! The bummer was seeing my little Mii plump right up after it weighed me. Oh The AGONY! LOL! The kids and hubby are better than me on oh every. single. category. but I know that I have to take my lumps to some degree. I put myself here after all and I only have up to go from here.
See Ya Soon!
