I purchased a Bodybugg. I've been wanting one for a while, but didn't want to shell out the money for it. I finally just decided to go for it and get it. Brian told me to think of it as my birthday present to myself!

So, I got it in the mail this week. I spent the better part of a day getting it set up. I had some trouble getting the program installed on my computer, but a few phone calls to Bodybugg and they were able to fix the problem I was having. Once I got it loaded, I answered several questionnaires and then I was ready to go.

Luckily, I got it set up just before I was ready to do my workout. I put the armband on ( it is just like you see on the Biggest Loser) and put the disply on the watchband and strapped it on my other arm. You wear the bodybugg on your left arm, so I am wearing the watch/disply on my right arm.

The display gives you up to the moment measurements. Calories burned, steps taken, how long until you reach your activity goal. It also shows the time.

I really thought that I moved enough during the day. I mean afterall, I work out at least one time per day, sometimes 2. Wow, this was an eye-opener for me. I don't move near enough! I'm also consuming more calories than I thought. You have to input the foods you eat into your online diary. This will show you calories in vs. calories burned.

The Bodybugg is a bit pricey, but I really think overall that it is worth it. Right now, you can get the Bodybugg and the display for $249.00. Chalene Johnson, creator of Turbo Jam and Chalene Extreme has graciously worked a deal for us!! You can save $15 off your purchase with this discount code! bbgcj24

I think that using this will help me get the last 5 lbs off. I know exactly what I am doing and what I need to do to get last of the weight off! NO MORE EXCUSES!!!!

From the 24 Hour Fitness website:

The revolutionary new bodybugg makes it easy to manage the calories you consume and burn so you always stay in control of your weight. Get started with a personal phone coach. Then manage your results daily on our user-friendly web based program.

As reported in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, 2008 edition, the bodybugg armband achieved average accuracy rates of 90% in studies comparing calorie expenditure measurements from the bodybugg device to calorie expenditure measurements in a metabolic chamber (the "gold standard" of calorie expenditure measurement).

• it's easy - monitor how much you exercise, manage how many calories you eat, then track if you are burning more calories that you are consuming

• it's flexible - eat what you want, when you want, workout on your own terms

• it's customized - your program is based on your age, weight, height and personal goals

• it's personalized -
o start with a 45 minute session with your personal phone coach
o view your progress with a 6 month subscription to the web based nutrition program, included with the initial purchase of the new bodybugg


  1. This sounds really cool. Happy SITS Saturday Shoutout!

  2. Thank you Elizabeth. I think it's pretty cool too!

  3. I think I need something like this. Or maybe I should just stop eating ice cream? SITS sent me over, and I'm glad they did...have a Serene Sunday, OK?

  4. My friend loves this little contraption! I would feel like Big Brother is watching me!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog SiTSTA!

  5. I too am a bodybugger...have been for a couple years now. Still have the original V1 unit without the wrist watch.

    The key to any fitness program is the mental conditioning necessary to commit to it. I love the bugg because it matches my analytical personality. I love to know how much I burn and it forces me to be very detailed and accountable to what I eat.

    Too many other fitness programs are too unstructured and wishy-washy for me.

    Good luck to you! I'm down 11 pounds in 2 weeks after my recent startup for fitness.

  6. I just opened the box and ran to set it up, but I can't find where the USB fits into the bodybugg!! I am decent with technology, but I've looked & looked on the device and on-line and can't find the port! Waaahhhhhh!
    Please help!!!

  7. Do you have the bugg in the arm band? If so, you have to take it out to charge it. Take it out and on the side is the port. Plug it in and it will charge and upload your info to the website. If you have any other questions, email me at! Have fun with it. I am loving mine!
