I tell ya, I'm really wanting one of those Body Bugg things they have on the Biggest Loser. I think it would be super neat to see how many calories i'm burning while walking around the office helping folks and especially while I'm busting my buns (no pun intended) at McDs! They're just so blasted expensive! Anyone know where I can get one cheap??

Good luck with getting the boy to go with you! My oldest doesn't mind too much as long as there is another kid for him to talk to, but my younger son would rather work at home with dad.

Update on the heart monitor that I order from eBay. I got it in the mail on Saturday and I'm not sure if I like it or not. It seems simple to use it just picky. I did go for a walk and the amount of calories that is said that I burned was just a few off what it says on here that I should have burned. As far as that goes it seems pretty accurate.

How ever, I have since ordered a pedometer and it was just delivered and I am ready to go for a walk and see how it works. Now I just need to get my son motivated to go with me.

The one I ordered is actually the "watch" type.

Keep an eye out at Target. That's where I got mine and the more expensive ones go on clearance pretty regularly.. I think I paid $15 for mine that was originally $60. It went around my chest and transmitted my heart rate to the watch. My only problem was, I couldn't ever make it work consistently. The directions were poor on the packaging so unless I was REALLY sweating, it was hard to get to register. Boy, once it started going though, it was great!! I should wear it more often.....

Price and shipping was less than $12. The guy had good feedback and it was from China. It didn't list the brand name. So if it is junk or doesn't work, I'm not out an arm and leg.

Nope, I don't. My mom had the one from 24 hr fitness...the one they use on Biggest Loser and I liked it except wearing that band all the time around your upper arm isn't comfortable and doesn't fit well under all your shirts. But, it was neat to see how many calories you burned....and it tracked other things too. They are just so expensive! How much did you buy yours for and what kind is it? I would love to get a heart rate watch....

I was wondering if any one had one and what they thought of it. I ordered one off of eBay yesterday and I am looking forward to getting it. I think it will help motivate me to see the amount of calories that I burn as I do something.
