The only thing I want to caution you about if you're actually paying attention to the food entries on FB is that modifications to what you have already logged on SP don't sync.
For example, I decided to eat half an apple instead of a whole apple, but I already logged a whole apple in SP, which has synced to FB.
Scenario one: I can update the apple entry on SP and click the button at the bottom of the page to sync my foods to FB. This actually causes a HUGE MESS because everything I've logged in SP ends up duplicated on FB.
Scenario two: I can delete the entry for a whole apple on SP and make a new entry for half an apple. Then I have to go to FB and delete the food entry for a whole apple. Annoying, but that's a lot easier than deleting lots of duplicates from the whole day!
At least, this is how it works for me. If anyone has any other experiences or a better way to do this, please speak up! :)
My ticker reminds me that activity, fitness and good health are a gift I'm giving myself. How generous will I choose to be this month?
Thanks! Question: If you log food onto the fitbit.com site, does that sync too? ************** Nevermind - just read the fine print on the SP fitbit page. They say they calculate food differently so it won't work.

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much
Just got my Fitbit One for Christmas but didn't turn it on until last week. Decided to do a search on SP to see if anyone else was using it thinking it would be great if they worked together and sure enough here I am! Hopefully this will help!
