FitBit is a pedometer.
It tracks, steps, distance, calories burned. It syncs with the website and tracks sleep quality and quantity, activities, weight log, food log etc. etc. and gives reports on all the info. I have found it to be an invaluable tool and motivator.

No not crazy!
At one point I was logging the info on Spark People, Fit bit, and two other notebooks!
I finally have resorted to just my fitbit for logging but use Spark People and other sites for info and motivation. Plus my fitbit syncs with Spark People.

I am obsessive about tracking. I keep the tracking as accurate as possible on the website and in my iPhone. Then I keep a daily summary in Excel. Just fun and beneficial all at the same time.

If you enjoy tracking twice, and it keeps you motivated--GO FOR IT! Nothing succeeds like success! :)

It Is What It Is.... :)
