Lifetime Momentum #26
Tuesday, April 12, 2011
Since I started my latest attempt at weight loss, I'm doing things a little differently. I have to admit that I am a bit of a technology junkie and I love new toys. So when I decided to mix a tech toy with weight loss I figured I couldn't go wrong. I decided to buy a BodyBugg and give it a try. All I can say is that I couldn't be more pleased. Knowledge is power and having that little device actually monitor the calories I burn has proven to be exactly what I needed. I thought about buying one in the past, but the fact that my exercise of choice is swimming and you can't wear it in the pool kept me from doing so. I decided that swimming has been my constant, so let's see how I do the rest of the day. Since I started wearing it, I find that I actually get up and take more walks and work harder during each session. Taking this knowledge of how many calories I'm actually burning mixed with my carefully monitored food log, I have been able to move the scale in the right direction. I have been using this for one week and managed to lose a total of 6 pounds!
