Bye Bye BodyBugg- for now!

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

This may seem bizarre to some, but I have decided to put my BodyBugg in the drawer for the time being. I have been wearing the device for 17 months and have not lost an ounce. I am not blaming the device- I know it's all me. But I think that knowing how much I burn- more than I thought- has subconsciously allowed me to eat more, negating the calories burned.

So I am back to staying within my calorie range, exercising and focusing less on my daily deficit. In a strange way, I do believe that I will do better without the exact science of calories burned.

May some times a little ignorance is bliss.

    That makes sense. Knowing exactly what your body is doing would be a way to know exactly how to "cheat" in a way. I hope you're feeling better now!

    Well well well I am most pleased to see a new Blog after 6 months!! lol I too have been fighting to get back on track. (with my food tracker) I can't believe you wore that Bug daily for 17 months! I don't even want to wear a bra everyday much less a device attached to my body! Hope you'll be able to relax more and yet focus better without the device.
    You have made remarkable progress since you started on Spark and you are healthier than you've been in years. Always remember how far you've come when your mind entertains negative thoughts.

    I have wanted a bodybugg but I tend to depend to much on my pedometer already and don't need a new addiction. I am stagnating as well. I'm not consistent nor on plan. Sloppy in fact. I need to get my groove back. Let's hope we can do it.

    I am selling my bodybugg. I found that I was focusing too much on the numbers and not on my healthy life and healthy choices.

    I think it is a good decision for you. It is good to know the info but you don't need to focus on that always.

    It's likely a good thing that you recognize what's happening and are taking steps to improve the situation.

    I've often wodered how accurate they are when you get closer to goal weight. I think you have a good plan and who knows, maybe after a vacation from the little bodybug, all things will become clear. emoticon

    Knowledge is power... but perhaps it's also an enabler?
