Hi I am Jill and like many of you I am a long time on again - off again SP member. I have been pretty inactive for about a year. I also just found out I could sync my fitbit (which I have had about 3 years) to SP. I need to get more active and looking for a goup of great supporters!!

I'm Toni, I've been on SP for awhile, but not good about tracking anything for any length of time. I've been using a Fitbit for about a year, but just discovered that I could connect it to SP. Maybe this will help me track more regularly. I joined a gym in January and try to workout on the machines 3 times/week, and I walk on the treadmill when it's cold or rainy out. If it's nice weather, I try to walk outside.Thanks for inviting me to this forum.

My name is Ken and I've been a SP user for a while, although I was not active for a couple of years.

I gained some weight over the winter and needed motivation, so I acquired a Gazelle fitness machine and just bought a Fitbit Charge HR. I found out I can connect it to SP, so I did and decided to get back into using the website.

Hello there! I'm Amber and I live in the gorgeous state of Minnesota. I got my first fitbit Flex from work (I work at a hospital and they wanted to do a healthy employee initiative). Well, I loved it, but it died. So I bought another one. I love it. It's much easier for me to use (a.k.a. harder for me to lose) and allows me to realistically view how active I've been in a day. No more lying to myself. :)

Hiyas!
Lynx from California. Just got a Fitbit Charge and loving it! Been on Spark just over two weeks and loving it too :)
My goal isn't as much a number on the scale, but how I feel and how my clothes fit. For the first time I've tackled my fear of strength training and have incorporated weights into my life. After just two weeks I can already see and feel a difference. My 41 birthday is the third week of June, so I started a 12 week program that ends the day before my birthday. Hoping to bring in my new year feeling and looking fabulous.
Thanks for having me as part of your team :).

Hey guys I'm Shez and I'm from the UK. Just bought a fitbit flex as the last one I had I snapped the clasp off and it wouldn't sync anymore! So just got this today and synced it with spark. Really hoping it helps me track a little better!

Hi everyone,

I'm Linda and I'm a Fitbit devotee. Wore a Flex for about a year and a half, and just replaced it with a Charge HR. Lost 50 pounds ~2 years ago and have kept it off (with some up and downs and tradeoffs, but exercise has been key in my ability to maintain). I'm a 64 year old single mother and, when my daughter moved out on her own several years ago I turned her bedroom into a very well appointed home gym (so no excuses - REALLY). I absolutely love using Fitbit, and adore SP, which I've been on since around 2005. Both are terrific tools that I consider to be indispensable.

But the food tracking between SP and Fitbit does have its issues ... such as nothing that you've customized as a SP "group" carries over. And if you make changes in SP after entering a food, you have to go into Fitbit and make those changes manually. So I tend to use SP for accurate nutritional tracking and workout sessions, and Fitbit for steps, heartrate monitoring, general calorie burn, etc.

I look forward to continuing improvements in the interactivity between SP and Fitbit, because I'm not giving either of them up!! And I look forward as well to the inspiration, mutual encouragement and exchange of stories & "tips" available on this team.

Hi, I'm Maya. This is my third week with my FB flex, loving it. Honestly, I'm stumped by the number of steps logged in by the members here! 20000 steps in a day, I struggle to reach 10000! I have my goal set at 6500, most days I'm just shy of few steps from reaching 6500. Have to admit this itty bitty thing motivates me to walk every single day!

Have a wonderful day ahead!

Hi. My name is Hayley. I live in Illinois. I am a full-time student and part-time receptionist. I am trying to lose 50-75 pounds. The most exercise I get is walking to the bus stop, from the bus to school, and from the bus stop to home. I am trying to lose some weight to feel better about myself.

Hello! Found this group on the Fitbit page. I've had my One for about 5 months. Been taking it kind of slow as I recover from multiple injuries including Achilles Tendonittis, a broken wrist and Inter-costal muscle strain. Ready to ramp up my exercise and get fit.

Hi, all-I'm new to the team and SparkPeople. I have had a Fitbit Flex since late February, and I love it. One day I'm gonna get that Olympian Sandal badge! Right now, I'm pushing for 25k steps. I have a small group of Fitbit friends, and we used to do a Workweek Hustle challenge every other week, but there were only a couple of us who really got into the competition. I'm hoping to meet some friends to add to my Fitbit list who will be up for some hustles and daily showdowns. I am also in the Springfield, IL group on the Fitbit website.

Hello,
I got a FitBit Charge HR this weekend. I previously had a FB One that I lost and I've lost two SP activity trackers. I'm hoping this one will stick around since it's on my wrist. I like it so far. Two questions though: My workouts seem to almost double on the calorie-burning count when it syncs to SparkPeople. Does anyone know how to fix that? Also, when I'm doing really intense, sweaty exercise, like my HIIT class, it tends to not register my heart rate, which then means the calorie burn is off too. I've wiped my arm with a towel and it gets it back on track for a few minutes, but then loses it again as soon as I get sweaty. Any solutions out there? Thanks everyone!
Meredith

My name is Claire and I just got my FitBit today! All set up and ready to go. I just got the basic Zip, since all I was looking to do was replace the SparkActivity Tracker. I'm looking forward to seeing how many steps I take in a day, and I'm glad that the FitBit doesn't have to be put on a shoe to be accurate. And now, I'm off to get it going so the face doesn't look like emoticon anymore!

Hi my name is Kellie. I've been a member on sparkpeople for a while but I have also been doing weight watchers. My husband bought me a fitbit charge for my birthday. I love it! I am thinking about stopping weight watchers and using only sparkpeople and fitbit to reach my goal weight. I still have about 65 lbs to loose. I'm not good at forums but want to get better and I need encouragement! Looking forward to this group!

My name is Liz and I just bought my Fitbit One yesterday. I am still trying to figure it out but I look forward to using it! I have been on SP for a few years, but I only used it on and off for weight and food tracking. This year, I decided to become more involved so that I can make this a lifestyle. My goal is to lose 25 pounds (I have lost 10 so far) and to keep moving. My tendency is to not move as much as I should, especially on the days that I do not go to the gym so I am hoping the Fitbit will motivate me to keep those steps up on all days!

Hi I am Diane and just got my Fitbit Charge HR this month, I really like it but am still figuring it out. I have been with Spark since 2009 and lost 60 lbs and maintained for a while, now I need to lose the rest, so I am hoping this will be the tool to keep me on track. I love the competitions and have several friends who have had a FB so that helps too.

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.

Hello, I have been a fitbit user for a while and my basic fitbit died. I want to replace it, but now there are so many to choose from. Are there any recommendations out there.

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

I used a fit bit a year ago and lose almost 30 lbs. Stopped tracking and using my Flex (then lost it during a couple of moves) and gained some back. I am back and more ready to keep a healthy lifestyle!

Hello,
My name is Victoria, I'm a college senior and about to move to Pittsburgh for graduate school. In addition to my move, I'm trying to make some other positive lifestyle changes. I've lost 15lbs with Weight Watchers but have switched to SparkPeople to save some money. I've also been using my fitbit for about a month and have great days and lame days. I need some motivation so, feel free to add me. My email address is victoria.miess@gmail.com

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 :)
