The Body Bugg

Remember when I said I got a Body Bugg for Christmas? I've been very faithful in wearing it and logging both my exercise and diet.

Wearing my bugg helps me to push myself a little more every day to try and burn at least 2700 calories. It is hard for me to do that so I take the stairs instead of the elevator and park farther away when running errands, and try and move more as well as exercise harder. (It is so much easier to burn calories than it is to only eat 1700 calories.)

I started January 1st. My goal is to lose two pounds a week. So far, I'm right on track. I have given up sugar too. I haven't had candy, cake, or ice cream since Jan. 1. I set a goal to not let myself have any until I reached my weight goal but I forgot my birthday fell in that space. What's a girl to do?

You can give me your advice if you want. I'll tell you what I decided to do on Monday.

I'll let you know when I reach my goal. Maybe I'll even post before and after pictures. (I guarantee they won't be pictures of me in a swimsuit.) This time I'm really going to do it.

Wow. That bodybugg thing looks pretty cool. I take it you like it? Congratulations on the weight loss -- that's great! And what's a girl to do??? A girl MUST eat cake on her birthday! (I think I'd be curled up in a ball in the corner if I had to cut out sugar LOL.)

You are too awesome for words. Love the quilts, the purses, the info about your body bug. You should have cake and ice cream for your birthday and whatever else you want-but you know I am not one for much self control. . . I am proud of you momma and happy birthday!

You are so dedicated!!! That Body Bug sounds really cool. I am going to check it out. It would be so interesting to see how many calories I burn each day! Great job with the weight loss. Woo hooooo!

I would splurge and get right back on the exercise wagon. So do your splurging outside of your own home. That way it's not too tempting. I didn't get any cake for my 40th last Tuesday and I kick myself. I missed it bad. Congratulations for staying on track!!!

You go! Seriously, you are so dedicated. You can totally do it and this time you will!

Keep up the good work! You inspire me! Sounds like Stephies' V-Day party was a hit! Your girls are all so creative! (wonder where they get that?!!)
