Welcome! I have been using my bodybugg for just over two years, and I love it. These things can really help you get a handle on what you're actually burning on a daily basis so you can make the adjustments necessary to lose or maintain your weight.
We have a weekly challenge (posted usually on Saturday night or Sunday morning, going Sunday through Saturday) as well as a monthly tracking thread. Feel free to jump in and join one or both at any time, and again, WELCOME!

I am so excited. I've been researching the BodyMedia, BodyBugg and Fitbit for a while now and finally decided to get one when I saw that SparkPeople had a promotional link. I actually found a better deal on Amazon (sorry SparkPeople, but need to spend as little as possible) that still came with the 3 free months of online tracking.
I finally decided it was time to stop wondering about them and to just go and get it. I did try it while on the ellpitical last night and thought the calorie burn graph was really cool. I like how you can adjust the time slider to look at specific units of time. I don't expect this thing to be 100% accurate, nor do I expect it to be able to decipher every move I make, I just want a better overall idea of my daily numbers. I am huge on graphs, numbers and statistics. Hopefully, this will give me a better idea on some of my workouts as they are hard to estimate on here :)
Glad there is a forum for this too, may help if I run into any issues. Glad to meet everyone!
I don't want to lose my fat, because it always seems to find it's way home again - on my hips!!! I want to say goodbye to it and send it away forever......
