The Beginning of the Armband Era

When I arrived home from work Tuesday night I had a box delivered by UPS waiting for me.  It was my the BodyMedia Fit armband that I ordered Saturday.

WOW! What a difference this thing is going to make in my life.  Being a numbers geek to begin with certainly helps.  But I love the fact that I can track everything I need in order to monitor my progress.  I am already down 1.2 pounds!

I do find that the medium armband that comes standard is a little tight so I ordered the large one this morning.  Other than that it has been a dream.  Plus, logging my food after every meal makes me think twice about what I am going to eat because I don't want to write down that I ate garbage.

Here are my stats for July 20, 2011:

Calories Burned-3,341 | Calories Consumed-1,155 | Calories Deficit-2,186 | Physical Activity-28 minutes | Steps Taken 6,868 | Sleep Duration 6:50 hrs | Sleep efficiency 93%


  1. do you have to pay a monthly fee with the arm band?

  2. thats really cool! I will have to check that thing out!

  3. The first three months are free when you buy an armband and then the monthly subscription fee kicks in. It's $12.95 a month on the monthly plan but drops down to $6.95 with a 12-month subscription. I think is selling the basic model with a free 12 months subscription.
