Some of you may have read Chubby McGee’s post on http://chubzilla.blogspot.com/ about me sending her my body media calorie counter.
Why would I give away my weight loss tool?
2 big reasons.
Reason 1 – The Body Media and I have exhausted our relationship. I love the data it provides but there is some limitations about it that I do not like. I DO NOT want to discourage anyone from using this as a weight loss tool. It’s just not the right tool for me. The mechanisms behind the device do not allow it to read my exertion at a kettlebell class correctly. My arms stay nearly stationary so there it very little movement. I wish there was a device that would do what the body media (and body bugg) does and measure heart rate. As far as I know it doesn’t exist. I also began to dislike wearing it 24/7. It’s hard to put into words why I choose to no longer use the device. I won’t get into the other limitations.
Reason 2 – I think Chubby rocks. She had mentioned a desire to have a device like this. I love reading her blog and I feel a cyber kinship with her. Same relative weight, 2 crazy boys, etc. She has an amazing writing ability (not me) and easily conveys her thoughts with a humorous tone (again not me). I wish I had her tiny waist. For a month or so I have been looking at the Body Media sitting on my desk, collecting dust and I thought I could do something better with this. I could make someone else happy who deserves to be so. Chubby immediately came to mind.
I expect nothing in return. Consider it like me unexpectedly paying for your drive thru meal (not that you would eat drive thru :-). Pay it forward in some form is all I ask.
