I'm revoking the right of my FitBit to synch with my SparkPeople account. I've had the FitBit for about two months and in that time my fitness minutes seemingly have soared, only not really.
More than a pedometer, when you synch with SP, the FitBit counts every single step as "fitness" and every single minute walking as a "fitness minute" and I think for me it's become a crutch.
"How come I'm not losing weight? I had 2,000 fitness minutes this month!" Only not really.
I love my FitBit, don't get me wrong. I'm still going to wear it every day. I like tracking my steps. I like seeing my steps over time. I like the way it records my sleep. I just don't like the way it makes me feel like I'm cheating on the fitness front of SP because, ultimately, that means I'm just cheating myself.
