I also track here at SP and use the Daily Estimate on the BodyMedia site to record my total calories for the day on that site. I'd been tracking at SP for a while before I got my device and didn't want to switch to a new place for tracking.

Welcome--and congrats on nabbing it on the Groupon deal! I have a bodybugg, not the BodyMedia Fit, so I am afraid I don't have any experience with their site. I prefer the SP food tracker, so I took the suggestion of others on this team and created a "generic" food entry for myself on the bodybugg site that is 100 calories total, then at the end of the day after I've tracked everything here, I enter the total calories for the day on the bodybugg site with my generic food entry. it's a matter of personal preference, really, though; the main thing is to be consistent in tracking food and using your device so you can get a handle on what your body is doing and balance the calories in/out.

I have been waiting to buy one of these things for a while. I luckily was one of the groupon peeps who bought one. I just have to get used to wearing it. Does anyone have anyadvice on the website? Do they have a place where food is written in to make it easier to track?
