I'm thinking about getting a BodyBugg or at least trying one out. I think the gym I go to has something where you can rent one for a month so I'm going to look into how much that costs. If you've never heard of the BodyBugg, it measures your caloric output to help you accurately estimate what your caloric intake should be in order for you to lose weight.

I know, I I really need to spend money on another gadget? Probably not, but I have come to the realization that I have a small addiction to gadgets. I love them, when I find out about a new gadget I want it. If I had the money or less restraint, I'd probably have all of the items that they sell in those infomercials. I think this particular gadget could be useful in helping me break my current plateau, at least I hope that it will.

I'll let you all know if/when I get it and what it tells me. What I really need is something that I can just attach to my body that will beep when I've eaten too much. Maybe I could even set it to give me a mild shock when I even think about eating unhealthy food.....too extreme?

I am a gadget hound as well, but I only buy gadgets after a thorough analysis.

I have a Bodybugg and have used it successfully (when my mental game was on) over the last couple years.

I started, again, on it 2 weeks ago and I'm already 11 pounds down as of this morning.

My "new" gadget that I did purchase this year to assist with working out is the Wii with the Wii Fit Plus game/balance board. I'm having fun with it and it does get me off the couch in the evening when I don't have many other exercise alternatives.

As long as you are willing to also track your caloric intake religiously, you won't be disappointed.

Good luck! (come see my blog at
