Recently, I've had constant issues with the sync between my Fitbit and MFP. Not to mention the app has become supper lagging and that makes logging a pain. So I'm going to try Sparkpeople again (tried it in the past, but can't remember why I didn't stick around). <BR> <BR> Some background information about me: <BR> <BR> I'm a stay-at-home mom of 2 boys (4 yrs and 2 yrs) and I'm 5'4.5". <BR> In 2011, I wa...

Live in Seattle, have had my fitbit for a while but am just now figured out how to link it here and am using it more liberally now. I have found it easier to track food here and have it transfer over. Any other advice and tips would be great.

I still get rashes from the HR even though they changed the formula. Yes, i clean it almost every day. No way am I giving up the fitbit. So my question in this forum is if anyone has found covers for the HR. They have them for others but I haven't found any for HR. I'm probably just not looking in the right places but that's why I'm asking! Thanks for any help available.

I decided to log everything as I normally behave to see my starting points. I am consistently walking over 12,000 steps, 10,000 at work in a five hour period. I am consistently burning about 700 calories more than I take in. Theoretically, something has to be off, right? Is it my steps or calories burned? I am about 60 pounds over weight.

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 08:13:19 EST Hello! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x36986x64090722 I bought the Fitbit Charge HR in March. So far I love it. I'm now logging more steps and getting more aware of my sleep habits. I no longer have to drag my phone with me if I want to use the pedometer and it wasn't nearly as accurate as this device is. Plus the sleek black design goes with everything.
