I am a newbie on Fitbit. My name is Carol, I am 70 (as of 9/03/15) I have many questions for them but don't get answers, even when I return an email asking if I am happy with the answers. Will it be ok to pose questions here? emoticon
I actually weigh 228 not 234 as noted below.

Good Afternoon,

I have been a Fitbit user for a couple of years, but just joined Spark People today. I decided that having people to answer to on my exercise would be a big benefit as no one at home holds me accountable.

Between that and a job change to a desk job last year has impacted my health and not in a positive way. That changes today with my start here. If you don't see me post daily, feel free to call me on it =) Keep me active.

Picked up my FitBit on Monday and love it so far!

I got auto-joined to this group when I linked my SP and Fitbit accounts so I figured I'd drop by and say hello. :)

Hello everyone! I joined SparkPeople in April and mostly just dabbled. Got SERIOUS last Tuesday (one month before vacation) and have been spending HOURS on this site every day trying to figure out everything (beyond tracking). Then I went and did the foolish thing of buying a Charge HR on my lunch break! Now MANY MORE things to learn!!! YIKES! :) Did my first Cardio Kickboxing Routine (on Gymbox-sorry!) and it was super cool to see how my heartrate was during the different parts of the routine! So that fun aspect is keeping me from freaking out and having brain overload about syncing etc! (no, I lie still stressed!) Hope everyone has a great week! I will be lurking around trying to learn stuff :)

New to the team but I have had my fitbit HR charge since March 2015. I love it and it keeps me honest about my activity level. Been on Sparkpeople since 9/22/2007. I live in IL with 3 boxer dogs.

Hi everyone,

Right now I live with my husband and will be married 15 years this saturday and together we have 4 boys ages 13 to 1. I do have a lot of weight to lose and know that I have a long road ahead of me but I can do it.

Hello everyone I'm Marilyn and I'm new to the group and in need of motivation for my journey ahead I have a 120 pound goal that I want to accomplish to be healthy enough for when I get married and have little ones so any motivation would be helpful and I can be there for everyone also:)

Hello everyone! I'm no pew to the group, but not new to SP or using a Fitbit. I'm not going to lie, I've been away from healthy eating and working out for over a year and it's starting to show...so now it's time to get back on track! Looking forward to exploring this team and the challenges" 😀

Hi Everyone!
I am new to this group, but have been using Fitbit since April after my Jawbone decided to take an unexpected swim in the sink while watching dishes (they don't swim well). I love the challenges, my neighbors and I are a little pathological about it (it is dark outside and I have 2000 steps to catch up and win for the day - go for it!). It is easy for me to stay motivated in summer, hoping this motivation will "stick" when the cold weather strikes in Wisconsin.

Have a great week.

HELLO - My name is Jenny P and I have my brand new fitbit charge HR on for my first full day. I love that it integrates with spark people - one of the reasons I decided to make the purchase. I am excited to get back on my weight loss/enhanced health journey and spark people and fit bit together should make it much easier for me.

I will look forward to being part of this forum on a regular basis

Have a great Saturday!!!

Hello everyone, been on SP for about 3 months after finding out I am diabetic. Current plan is to control by diet. My current employment has me working at home on the computer or phone calls all day so I have a pretty sediment workday.

I purchased a Misfit and started walking (trying for 5 days a week) and started logging my food intake on the new eating lifestyle.

I have been thinking about upgrading to a Fitbit and decided to do so yesterday and it is due to arrive tomorrow.

My Fitbit user info is below so feel free to friend me both here and there!

Hello all. I just joined SparkPeople recently, about a month after I got my Fitbit Surge. Just wanted to introduce myself and say it's good to see so many people are improving their lives. I'm a transplanted southerner (from Virginia) living in Indiana. I have quite a few fitness goals, namely losing weight, reshaping my body, and eating better. I look forward to making this journey with all of you.

Hello I'm new here :) I have had my fitbit charge since December. I just had to reorder a new one today because it's not counting my steps or syncing up with my computer or phone:( Thank goodness I purchased the warranty! I've been averaging 10,000 steps per day and really enjoy the motivation the fitbit gives me. I just wish it would stop raining here in Ohio! emoticon

Hello all! I am new to the team. I've had my Fitbit since February, and the last several weeks haven't been as active as I should be. I am just back from a vacation so I'm hoping to get myself back on track now.

I was given a fitbit for Mother's Day. Maybe the best gift ever! I have lost almost 20 pounds since then - two months exactly. I just learned that I could sync my fitbit to Spark People. YAY! Looking to lose over 85 pounds total, so got a long way to go, but I'm doing it this time!

I have finally learned the art to tracking and today set up my little fitbit! I am excited to see how this adds to keeping me on track even after I reach my goal. Hi everyone!
I have so far lost 32 lbs and have a little over 18 more to go! My goal is to be the new old me by my birthday in November and I swear I am DONE being a Yo-Yo. I know I will need the continued motivation that you all on Sparkpeople have given! I love finding new ways to stay strong and healthy! I have so much more energy and LOVE it!

I just set up my fit bit zip and I have to say this food calculator is miles ahead and so is the activity information. But as far as tracking steps and calories burned this is great too ....so far. Can't even tell I have it on. The only problem so far I have is that in the summer my go to is swimming in the ocean so I just track it here and mention it on the fitbit with time. The main thing is to keep going, so about time for me to move :) I've already synced it to this program and it was incredibly easy.

Hi I'm Cassie. I just re-joined SP today. I originally got my fitbit flex last October, but it fell of my wrist about a month ago and I couldn't find it. I just got my replacement yesterday because I kept holding out hope that I would find mine. I love my fitbit!

I am really trying to stick to this and get it done. I want to do well on the race in Sept. so I am forcing myself to track food. If I don't want to write it down don't eat it is what I am doing. It is hard. It is another good day.

I'm doing great! I got my 10,000 steps in today and walked over 5 miles! woot woot! I did a really hard running routine last night on the treadmill that really kicked my booty but I'm feeling good. I'm good at tracking my fitness but not so much in tracking my food emoticon

I am at 2946 and am off to the gym. I need to keep training for a 5 k. I know it is only 3 miles but I want to do it under what I did 5 years ago. I want to cross at 30 min. Edit: I got it done. How did you do??

Hi, my name is Charie, 65 years old and DO NOT want to be an old lady. So, I recently bought the fitbit and I'm taking charge of my health. Just this a.m. (4 a.m., I work night shift, RN) I figured out how sync it with Sparkpeople. I was on this site in 2009 lost weight and have proceeded to regain it. Silly Woman!!!! I fell a year plus ago and fractured my spine. Two weeks later, had gall bladder removed and pancreatitis. RUINED my core totally through all this and gained weight. I seriously went to rehab and could not feel myself contracting my abdominals. I'm back and the plan is to get this stuff off once more and keep it off!!!! So here I go!!!! (need to drop 70ish lbs.)

You may not think you can reach it.
Climb anyway.
You may not think you'll be heard.
Speak anyway.
You may not think you can change things.
Try anyway.

Hi everyone,

I have always struggled with my weight, and then after being on high dose steroids for a few years to control my immune system I ballooned up. I've been battling losing the weight since I got off the meds in 2011 and just keep going up and down. I added my fitbit as an effort to help keep me accountable, remind me to move, and also build consistency. I've had it about a month now and absolutely love it. I have the FitBit Charge HR. It is awesome.

Hello all. I am Michele and I am making a commitment to me, to get healthy. For me this means loosing weight and getting my A1C back down by controlling my daily food intake and seeing exercise as a positive thing. I have mental and emotional sludge that has contributed to my self neglect so it is a daily choice to overcome the negative and see the benefits of caring for me. All this is easier said then done when there are a lot of demands on me so I hope to set support and help staying on track with this community.

I have only been using the fitbit for a month or so but find it very helpful and positive. It is a nice reminder that I have a goal and encourages me to strive a little harder. emoticon

I've just returned to SP after coming out of retirement for 3 years, and as of yesterday, returning to retirement! New user name - new start. Work stress and I don't mix well - I regained so much weight and just didn't want to start all over again with my old username.

I have a FitBit Flex - have had it nearly 2 years. Except when I got a bit of a rash on my wrist, I have worn it every day. I love it.

Hi! I'm Chris, I've had my Fitbit Zip x 1 month. I love it and I'm hitting an average of 12000/day. Unfortunately, it stopped syncing to my phone and I can't get to the computer with the dongle until tomorrow. I hope is an easy fix, b/c I this breaks after a month, I'm not getting a new one, and I loved it so for the past month.

Hello, I am Terry and I have only had my fitbit a couple weeks. I thought 10,000 steps was a little extreme but I have only missed a couple days not doing it. I really like this and I LOVE BADGES,

Hello! I am Kelley...I have the fit bit one and love it!! I didnt realize I could sync it to sparkpeople. I have been doing sparkpeople for years and got my fit bit last fall. So this is pretty cool. I have lost 37 pounds and want to lose 50 more. I am a 911 dispatcher who works long, stressful days and find my fit bit really helps me keep active!!

Hellloooo :-) Someone added me to your group here, and i am glad they did. I just purchased my first fitbit one yesterday. At first i thought it was "not all that", but as i used it today, i can see why everyone who has one loves it. There are just a couple more things i need to figure out, like the sleeping mode and why SP doesn't record the same calorie burn that is recorded in my unit. I started at 354 lbs, I'm now down to 222. I've used a treadmill all this time until recently when i sold it and got an elliptical. It turns out the elliptical is too big for my short legs and now is an expensive coat hangar. So i just got my One, and i made a huge non scale victory today by taking a walk over 2 miles long around the neighborhood and enjoying my One - something I've not done since just after high school. Thanks for having me here!

Btw, if you send me a private message with your email address (or vise versa), I would love to add you as a Fitbit friend.

I purchased a Fitbit Charge today. I had a Spark Tracker and lost it. I was starting to build an exercise habit and I enjoyed the feedback. I had to call Fitbit and have a support person walk me through the installation because of my internet virus protection. I haven't actually done in exercise yet but I think I'm going to like the tracker.

I'm Linda. I just put on a fitbit this morning. I gave it to my husband for his birthday but he won't wear it so now it's mine! I have a Spark Activity Tracker as well. Comparing them should be interesting. I wanted to use the fitbit so that I can track my HR when I am exercising outside.

I have been doing Spark since early February and have lost 33 pounds! Hopefully, having this new tool will add motivation to help me down the stretch towards my big goal of 52 pounds lost.

We all get 24 hours a day. How we use them is up to us.

Thank you! Yes smaller and short term weight loss goals are best, in my opinion. Thinking of that far out number can certainly be daunting but breaking it up makes it so much easier mentally.

Starting weight: 309.4
1st goal: 10.4 pounds, 299 by July 2, 2014 (met June 25th)
2nd goal: 30 pounds- 10% of remaining weight, 269 by October 15, 2014 (met September 24th)
3rd goal: 27 pounds- 10% of remaining weight, 242 by January 7, 2015 (met January 28th)
4th goal: 24 pounds: 10% of remaining weight, 218 by April 29, 2015 (met May 6th)
5th goal: 22 pounds: 10% of remaining weight, 196 by August 19, 2015

Hi everyone, my name is Bonnie. I've been on Spark People for almost 13 months now and FINALLY got a fitness tracker. After listening to others regarding their SPAT or other fitness tracker, I decided a Fitbit was for me. I chose the Fitbit One and love it so far. I have only had it for one day. I love how active I am now after over a year of good habits and seeing the actual numbers (steps/distance/etc) it truly amazes me!

I babysit my almost 4 & 3 year old nephews full time while my brother works. I am working on becoming a coach for others losing weight in some form or another, so hopefully I can make that happen soon! Other than that, I don't really have much to say right now but am looking forward to reaping the rewards of my Fitbit and anyone is welcome to add me on here!

Hi, I'm Sandy. My sister bought me a FitBit Charge as an early birthday present a couple of weeks ago. I'm really enjoying it and still trying to figure out all the ways to use it to help me get fit. I am married with 2 daughters - one in college and another in HS. Walking is one of my favorite activities, so I'm hoping to be able to stay on track with this and finally lose the weight.

Hello,

I've been a SPARKPEOPLE member for many years (intermittently these past few years). I initially lost 30 lbs and then gained quite a bit of it back while working on my undergraduate studies and working (excuses, excuses). Well now I'm headed to Graduate school in the Fall and I'm devoting this summer to getting back on track again & stay that way.

1. Log in my food intake to hold myself accountable to what I eat.

2. Use my fitbit to hold myself accountable to how much I actually move & how much sleep I get.

The fitbit and SPARKPEOPLE are an absolute fantastic pair of tools to use together.

I just purchased the fitbit as a gift to myself as my birthday is this month. Best gift I could have ever given myself.

Go fitbit users unite!

Hi, I'm Alisha. I've been using my Fitbit ChargeHR since January. It has been keeping me on track in steps, for sure. I have a pretty busy lifestyle, and with two dogs who demand walks each day, I do manage to meet my goals pretty easily.
I also have three children, ages 14, 13 and 11. I'm trying to lose at least 20 pounds, and I know my diet choices are getting in the way. Hoping to hold myself a little more accountable by coming back to SP.

Hi! I received a Flex Fitbit for Mother's Day and love it! Going to give one to my husband for Father's Day on the weekend as our two girls thought that was a great idea.
I am in my mid 60's and walk every day. garden and love to read (on my Kobo) as my eyesight is deteriorating due to a retinal problem. emoticon

Hello from Sunny Florida! My name is Laura and I live in the Northeast area of the State. I'm a long time member of SparkPeople who developed issues after running multiple 5K's and Half's and then sort of went seriously off-track. I've had a Fitbit for awhile, but have not used it to its full potential and I plan to change that starting today. I would appreciate anyone's assistance in motivating me to reach my goals.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.
