He was amazed at his progress, in only 6 weeks, only accepting it after creating photographic proof.

At my lowest, just under 300 early fall 2013 at the St. Louis Zoo.

J.T. Robertson: Words and Weightloss

I've made wonderful progress with some not-so-wonderful backsliding over the past two years on Spark. 2014 is the year I burn the 300 lb. bridge behind me, and never look back.

The band is a standard velcro strap. They say to had wash it, vice in a machine.

About once a month, I'll soak them in the sink (I bought a spare so I can swap them out after a workout). I let them soak in soapy water for an hour or two, then rinse off and let them dry....easy-breezy

I'm a fan of the Bodymedia fit, mostly because I'm quite obsessive about statistics and measurements. I always workout with a Heart Rate Monitor and when I bike I have a GPS that measures distance, pace, instantaneous speed, etc.

So when I read how the Bodymedia Fit takes constant readings all day long measuring everything from calories burned to steps taken to quality of sleep, I had to have me one!

I like it. I have the Core version which is a little smaller and I really don't notice it while it's on (which has made for some interesting times going through TSA at the airport).

I got mine from Amazon, swooping in when it went on sale for about $80. Once you get it, you have to pay a monthly fee ($6.95) for access to the Bodymedia website, so there is a recurring cost as well. I equate it to paying for 2 cups of coffee to get data that satisfies my inner geek

Let me know if you want more info.
