Welcome, Cindy! I have the Bodybugg, so I can't help a lot with questions specific to BodyMedia, but I'm sure some of the others here who have one can help. I do the detailed tracking of my food here on SP as I prefer the food tracker here; I have lots of Favorites saved so it makes tracking much, much easier. I have set up a 'generic' calorie entry on the Bodybugg site (value of 100 calories) that I use to record all my calories for the day there in order to see my calorie deficit. It's really a matter of personal preference, though; once you get a system down with tracking, it's not nearly as big a deal.
I LOVE my Bodybugg, it has made a big difference for me in understanding what's really going on with my body. It's also been a motivator to get up and MOVE a lot more. Hope you find your BodyMedia to be a great tool as well!
