I love the FitBit too. I actually bought it from seeing it here on SP. As far as the sleep interruptions go, I used to wake up throughout the night too. I had a sleep study done and they found I have sleep apnea. Now I wear a CPAP machine at night and sleep like a baby. Losing weight will help the condition.
If you do what you always do, you will get what you always get. To get something different you have to do what you never did.

Welcome one day everything will sync between both groups and life will be good.
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
Wow... I think it's wonderful that FitBit and SparkPeople link together! I was getting a little frustrated with FitBit's food logging and wishing I could move the SP stuff over there - and then lo-and-behold, when I signed into SP, there it was!!!!
I'm 50 years old and years of sedentary work has put the pounds on me! I have almost 100 lbs to lose and my SIL told me I should get a FitBit to help motivate me. It does.
One of the interesting things I've noticed is that I wake up a lot at night. That might account for how tired I feel so much of the time - like I'm not rested. My best night was waking up 6 times and my worst was 23. Based on that information alone, I'm thinking I might do a sleep study in the near future.
