I used sparkpeople in the past and now I'm aiming to give it another go with my new Fitbit. Wed, 25 May 2016 13:45:32 EST Trying Sparkpeople (again) after 3 yrs of MFP http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x36986x64398836 Hello everyone. <BR> <BR> I've been using MyFitnessPal for I want to say 3 years now. 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.

It was completely a surprise! I am so excited to be a part of this group. I have a couple of questions about syncing if anyone is game to answer them please send me a spark mail :) Tue, 17 May 2016 22:17:15 EST Hi all! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x36986x64358137 My name is Natalia. I've been around here for a long time but didn't really get serious enough about sticking to a plan. A scary number on the scale plus a bit of a health scare (hypertension) finally gave me the nudge I needed to get back on track. I've had my Charge HR for just over a week and I absolutely love it! <BR> Hope everyone's week is off to a positive and awesome start!

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'm new here and would love to make some new friends and support people and look for some supporters. I've joined the FitBit Challenge of 5,000 steps daily and I will strive to do that and even better. I am a 49 year old mom of an adult daughter who just turned 21. I need to lose about 56 pounds for my health and well being and so I can buy a little black dress and heels and show everyone (including myself) that I CAN DO THIS!!!

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. Been doing this job for over 2 years. Mon, 18 Apr 2016 20:48:34 EST New http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x36986x64156576 Hi I am Janet and am new on here.

I'm afraid I'll lose it for good one day when away from the house. I make sure both prongs snap in. Has this happened to anyone else?

According to it and the way it is syncing with Sparkpeople I am suppose to be eating a LOT of calories. With the modification of Fitbit, SP is saying that my daily goal is between 3002 and 3352 calories. Fitbit itself says I have up to 2,643. How accurate is this?

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.

I am not new to SP, I have been off and on for several years. I hit a low point with myself and all that was going on in my life that I gave up back in May of 2015. I figured if I wasn't going to put forth an effort then there was no need for me to continue with SP. So I deleted my page. I attempted to reopen my page but since I deleted it, I had to start over. So...this is me, starting over. <em>104</em> Sun, 3 Jan 2016 20:18:22 EST Hello http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x36986x63329700 <em>408</em> <BR> Happy New Year Everyone.

I have linked my Fitbit to SP and I noticed that my exercise calories are way too high. I assume this is because I wear the Fitbit all day. For instance, on Monday I wore it for 10 hours and it told me I burned 1246 calories. The only real exercise I did was a half hour walk. How do you decipher your resting calories from your workout calories? Do you only wear it for your workouts? Any advice would be most helpful! <BR> <BR> Thank you and happy ...

We both have the fitbit CHARGE. I wear mine to bed but she usually just leaves hers on the night stand. One night she did wear it and it tracked her sleep, but if it is just sitting on the night stand at night it doesn't. <BR> <BR> How does the fitbit know whether you are sleeping and to track or if it is just sitting on your night stand and not tracking sleep?

I understand that it sends my active minutes over, and SP counts those as exercise minutes towards my weekly goal. <BR> <BR> When I log 10 minutes of yoga or a 30 minute walk in Fitbit, that doesn't go to SparkPeople. So instead of seeing 40 minutes of exercise, I only see however many active minutes, which aren't always the same as the exercise I actually did.

Or it might work for a few hours, then quit on me. The screen pops in and out--sometimes there is a reading on the screen, sometimes not.
