Burning 800 cals overnight is expected and normal.

You burn calories sleeping. Your body still needs to breath, produce hormones, digest, and you do all that tossing and turning.

At your current weight of 363lbs, depending on age and height, your BMR can be 2400. That means if you slept for 8 hours (1/3rd of a day), you would burn 800.

I didnt put "it to sleep" last night and I still woke up having burned 800 some odd cals even though all other numbers had reset to zero

At least the steps were down to zero though, that makes it a more accurate day

I wear mine during sleep mode. I barely know that I have it on. It helps determine how I sleep.
how many steps is it accumulating? I can understand the calories, because you are always burning calories. There is a fitbit group here who may be able to help or you can contact fitbit support. They are awesome.

That's weird. I just take mine off every night and when I get up in the morning, it's reset to zero. Maybe try that instead of putting it in sleep mode and see if it helps.

I put my Fitbit into sleep mode and kept it on my dresser last night.
I understand from reading more info that it is counting cals from what it thinks I burn just from living based on my weight-but why on earth did it count steps when it was supposed to be staying still on my dresser?
