Hi! My name is Kayla, and I just purchased my FitBit today. I started a lifestyle change back in December 2014, and the deal was that I would reward myself with a FitBit Charge HR once I lost 50 lbs. Well, as of Friday, I am officially down 50 lbs! I picked up my FitBit from Target this morning, and I'm so excited about it! I love seeing the actual number of calories I'm burning per day, rather than just the number I burn when I exercise. Now I just need FittBit friends so we can compete in competitions!!

I'm so thrilled with my new FitBit flex. I took a group exercise class at my gym, and then went to the grocery store this morning. I've already reached 70% of my 10,000 steps! emoticon

This is my second week back on Sparkpeople nation after a long hiatus of bad eating and laziness. This time around, I'm trying to engage fully with the community.....and let the Sparkpeople inspire and motivate me on my weight loss journey. This time, emoticon

Hi! I'm Sarah.

I've been an off-and-on spark user for several years now, and just got a fitbit on Wednesday. So far I am very pleased with it.

I have a question maybe someone here knows the answer to: I have my weight and height set to imperial in both sparkpeople and on the fitbit site, but when my fitbit syncs, it switches back and forth between metric and imperial but still says it's imperial (maybe it's confused because I'm in a metric country?). Does anyone know how to fix this so that my weight doesn't appear to multiply or divide by .454 every time I sync?

Thanks in advance!

Oh, PS, I have a flex. Maybe it makes a difference for changing settings.

Hi I'm Sue. I've been Sparking for several years and just got a Fitbit One about a month ago. I just found out today I could connect it to Spark. I'm looking forward to some challenges.

Hello Everyone: My name is Gary AKA Arkiebear. I live in western Arkansas and have been a Fitbit Flex user since September 2014 when I joined a local gym for the first time in my life. I had been going religiously 3 days a week up until I had surgery (spinal Cord Stimulator implanted) 2/19/2015. Since surgery I had been so restricted on certain activities that just walking bores me to death.. Fortunately through all this and the over eating I have not gained but 3 pounds. I have had a lifelong problem with my weight and food has always been my comfort food whenever I was let down, scared, angry etc. So with that being said I am restarting easing myself back into the gym. I find the flex to be pretty accurate for me. Look forward to life!

Hello,
I have been on Spark people for several years now, and between menopause and medication my weight has been going back up. The beginning of this year I decided it was time to take action again. My husband and I started back to the gym, I started back on here, and about a month ago I got my first Fitbit. I love it, my only problem is that I can not get it to sync with my phone. We were away last week-end and I couldn't see my progress for 2 days. A little bit of a bummer. Anyway thanky you for welcoming me to your team.

hi. I got a fitbit one march 2014. I lost it in our back field for over a month, washed it a few times and it kept on kicking. I finally put it through the dryer on accident and that is what killed it. After being with out one for months I got the flex. I love there is a group on sparkpeople who share in the love of fitbit and how it improves my fitness to know how active i have been so i can work to be a little more active each day.

Hi! Just got my Fitbit Zip last week. I wanted something to motivate me to walk everyday. I've been basically a couch potato for a long time due to arthritis. But, I've decided I can't let that stop my life any longer. I live in Alabama and am a wife, mother, grandmother and sister to be the best. I have 4 grandchildren I love dearly and they are another motivator for me. I'm excited to join this group and receiving and giving encouragement and support for myself and others.

Success to All,
Beth

How do!! I'm Ann!! I've had my fitbit since mid December. Got it as a Christmas present for myself and I've been on sparkpeople for a few years but I have recently started becoming more active on here for help in loosing weight. I hit my highest at 315lb and decided I needed to change somethings when I was left about in tears on my birthday and the outfits I wanted to wear weren't fitting me right anymore.

I have a love for anime, games and comics and I guess an all around nerd lol. I would like to find more friends on here and fitbit to kinda help get a support system goin. Glad to be joining this team :)

Hi everyone, I'm Laura. Longtime SPARKPEOPLE user but sadly my weight has fluctuated greatly over the years. I bought a FITBIT in January 2015 and it's the best thing to happen to my health in a long time, especially when used with nutrition and exercise trackers here. I love seeing my steps constantly throughout the day, the ease in comparing myself to friends, and seeing my progress over time. I'm up to an average of 12,000 steps per day and hoping to get to average 20,000 per day over the next month or so. I compete in challenges 7 days per week so if you're looking for a FB friend to keep you on your toes and you're in my step range, add me! Just send me a message for details :)

Hey, Kirsten here. I've had my FitBit One for just over 2 years now and feel naked when I don't have it on me - does anyone else feel that way? lol

I'm SO glad this syncs with SparkPeople. I've been a SP member since just about when SP began, under different names. I'm trying a fresh start and figured a new username and empty stats would help motivate me.

Feel free to add me on FitBit... I don't interact there too much (no time for all the social media stuff most days) but if you invite me to a challenge I'll usually participate - any motivation helps!

Hi! I used Sparkpeople and BodyBugg to lose 40 pounds in six months a few years ago, but the device puts metal against my skin and I have the common allergy that creates a terrible rash in that circumstance. I'm happy to have recently found a solution with Fitbit Zip, and though it doesn't measure everything the way the other device did, it's very motivational. I just love its little smiling face!

I won't be on much; self-employed 48 hours a day, lol. But thanks for the welcome. I have a question, so I'll now go searching for the answer.

Hello,

My name is Dawn. I just recently started using Sparkpeople again. I've had the Fitbit One for a couple years now. I love it. Even when I am going through a bad stretch I can see how I am doing.

I can get a little obsessed with it at times (understatement).

Hello all...I just joined this group cause I ordered a Fitbit One and waiting on its arrival. Have/had the Spark Activity Tracker since Christmas 2013 and new batteries are not working so it is slowly dying. I really enjoy having a tracker so I was on the hunt for a new one...was going to get another Spark but noticed that Fitbit links to SparkPeople so gonna give it a try. Looking forward to the more options in its tracking but had to go for the clip one like the Spark cause I am use to it plus I already live in a watch and can't replace it. :o) I hope, once I get it all figured out upon its arrival, that I will find some Fitbit friends who are similar to me. I work in an office so I honestly don't get in as many steps as I would like...aim is 6000 a day...but I do like to jog at least 3 days a week and I am starting to do kettlebells. I suckered a really awesome guy to marry me 15 years ago (hehe) and we have 2 kids who lovingly drive us crazy every day to keep us on our toes...plus a not so smart dog who suffers from separation anxiety...what more could you ask for...HAPPY as can be, having the time of my life in Cali. emoticon

Greetings everyone! I'm Nikki from Ohio! As I just posted on the wall, I got my Charge HR this week, having been an UP user ever since my Force caused me to break out and I had to return it. I've gone through three UP bands, each one of them breaking in one way or another (the last one snapped and felt like a broken Barbie limb) so I decided to come back to FitBit. I also own the Aria scale, which I love because it does all of my weight tracking and I don't have to keep track. Keeping my fingers crossed that the Charge will last and will not fall victim to my track record for fitness trackers :)

Hi Fellow fitbit users,

Im Rayne (Rain) I live in California, I am 53 and have had my fitbit for about a year now. Yesterday is only the 2nd time I have ever hit the 10000 mark. I love my fitbit and initially got it to track my sleep since I am a bad sleeper and was tested @ a sleep lab only to find out that I get an average of 13% REM sleep, I am ok with that since I have been like this since high school.

Im glad to be here !!

HI! My name is Sarah. I just got a Fitbit Charge HR yesterday!! Very excited to track so many things - not sure if the HR monitor is actually accurate during workouts (compared to my Polar F7 I usually wear for workouts) but time will tell. :-)

I've been married to a handsome and phenominally supportive man (who surprised me with the Fitbit!) for 10 years and we have a hilarious, inquisitive and super fun 6 year old son and a huge (110 pounds), playful German Shepherd. We live in Texas.

I've been inconsistent with SP and focusing on health goals in general over the years (since I became a parent) but I'm in "full on" mode these days which is a great adventure. I LOVE to do Zumba, TRX, strength training and elliptical (okay - i don't really "LOVE" elliptical, but I tend to do it often since its the only time I let myself watch my guilty pleasure cheesy SciFi, haha).

I'm looking forward to learning more about Fitbit, being supported and supporting others on the path to healthy!

Hi my name is Gina. I am 40, married with 3 kids - but just the youngest (17) lives at home. I got my Fitbit in Sept and really got started (again) on my weightloss journey. About 5 years ago I lost 25lbs but since then life has happened. Stress, work, school etc caused me to gain back the weight and then some. I started in December at 177lbs. Today I am down 20lbs but my weight loss has tapered off. I was using My Fitness Pal but decided to switch because of rude comments.

I am a fraud analyst for a credit card company so I have a desk job. In addition my commute is 2 hours round trip for work. I do go to the gym 5-6 days a week which includes weights and 30 mins cardio. When I get home I spend the rest of the night sitting, doing homework.

Feel free to add me as friends on Fitbit if you want, my user name is the same there are it is here.

Hi I've been using my fitbit for a while now but think I need some extra motivation.

My fitbit user number is 296DYK. I am 58 years old (will be 59 next month) My problem is I start exercising do it for a few days/weeks but then get distracted with other things and find I don't have time. I know I know if I really wanted to exercise I would find time, but I find if I don't exercise first thing before work, it doesn't get done. emoticon

Just remembered it's 1st March today, so I will be 59 in 30 days - emoticon

I just bought a Charge HR today, and am hoping that this is the added spark I need to get myself more motivated to exercise. I currently have a LOT of weight to lose and would love to get some fitbit buddies that would be willing to do some challenges with me (although I haven't yet figured out how to do them... but I will!) If anyone is willing to help, I would really appreciate it.

Hello everyone.
I did not even know there was a sparkgroup for Fitbit.
Now that I have my fitbit I am seeing how much I really do walk.
I am going to try to go 15000 per day. Is that too much?

I understand the feeling. I sit at a desk all day too, but for the last three days I have gone walking at lunch and the first thing I do is check to see how many steps I have taken.

Hi all, I'm Jeanne from Sacramento, CA! I just got my Fitbit Flex on Sunday. I sit behind a desk all day, so it is really hard to get those steps in. Now that I can see how I'm doing, it is more fun to increase those steps. I'm at 6300 so far today! Yahoo!!

I'm new to the team, but a long time fitbit user. I just upgraded to the Charge and love it.

I'm lucky enough to live in Florida, where the weather is currently perfect for walking during lunch. I've never had so many steps before!

I have a fitbit flex. It took a couple of days to get use to having it on my wrist - I kept looking at it to see what time it was (I haven't worn a watch in 20 years.) I love the way it syncs my food intake from SP. I'm on FitRPG if anyone is interested in some fun roleplaying. My name is Healthfan on FitRPG.

FitRPG syncs real nice to Fitbit.

Hi Lorraine, I monitor my sleep patterns as well and it is amazing how restless I am at night. My dog gets me up most nights at least once so I know I am not getting a full nights rest, but I had no idea how restless I am. Not sure what I can do about that, but perhaps once I can start getting out and walking more maybe my sleep will be more restful.

Hi, I'm Lorraine. I got the fitbit flex a couple of days ago so I'm still getting used to it. I got it mainly to track my sleep patterns as my blood pressure seems to have gone through the roof for no apparent reason. I been very surprised to find I do over 8000 steps on an inactive day just by chasing my children. My goalsetting are to get back to using SparkPeople regularly and meeting my 10000 steps as well as getting adequate sleep

Hello I just started using the fitbit charge HR, not even a week into it yet. So I am still getting used to it. I have not worn it to bed to track my sleeping yet, getting used to wearing something on my wrist all day, once I am comfortable with that I will tackle sleep. It certainly is not the most attractive thing - but that's not why I bought it. It does motivate me to keep moving It does make me exercise a little harder so I can see my heart rate go up..that is all I am looking for at this time. I recently started putting a lot of weight back on - not sure why haven't changed to much in my lifestyle - so I have decided to really look at what I am doing -

Good Morning Everyone,

My name is Patty and I have been away from Spark People for awhile, but thought I would jump back on to see if I can get motivated again. I have had my Fit Bit for almost a year and while I love checking to see how far I have walked I think I would like to move up to the Charge. My boss just got it and the band is different and I liked the fact it will show you the exact number of steps you walked, your heart rate and so on without having to log into your computer. Rebekah, the band on the Charge is different (if you pay a little more) and it looks more like a watch band and this one may not irritate your skin so much.

Hello, I'm Rebekah. I have had my Fitbit Flex for a year. I quit using it a couple of months ago because the band was so irritating. I got it back out yesterday at my sister in law's urging and then left it at work!!! ( I had it in my scrub pocket and dumped everything from my pocket at the end of my shift into my locker!) I am seriously considering getting the Charge HR. Does anyone have any feedback on the Charge? Has anyone had any skin irritation? Please let me know! Oh yesterday at work I walked over 13,000 steps before leaving my Fitbit!

-Rebekah
