I am really pleased with my fitbit. It works So MUCH better and is infinitely more accurate than all the other pedometers I've had. The weekly reports are so helpful and informative. Never had anything like that before. I am hopeful that between fitbit and Sparkpeople I will be healthier and happier. Gerry

@ KESTRUNK:

If you work at a computer all day you might consider heading to this site for those reminders:

www.fitbolt.com/

I like DLDMIL's idea of setting up reminders on your calendar as well.

Hope these ideas help!

KESTRUNK, I have a desk job, so I set up appointments in my calender to remind me to get up and move during my work day.

I am loving mine - I am trying to see if there is an easy way to set periodic "alarms" throughout the day to remind me to get up and move...

@ SAGITARE:

Here is the link to check you sync settings. If you want your FB to sync automatically you need to TURN IT ON.
Also, the SP food tracker syncs to FB while the FB activity tracker syncs to SP.

Just pulled my Fitbit Ultra out of its winter hibernation in the dresser and am trying to sync it with SP. This is very exciting! The minutes of activity seem to connect. . .but what about the food tracking? I think I'm missing a piece. Can someone please help? Thanks!

I agree! I had another type of monitor that's pushed here on SP and on a certain TV show and it was a complete and utter waste of money. Not only was it completely obtrusive because I had to wear it on my arm, which meant alot of people asked questions. It also was VERY inaccurate. It would count activity if you walked or ran, but if you rode a bike, lifted weights or did the stepper, it counted zero activity. I complained to the company and their answer was to take the monitor off during that kind of activity and then manually load it! WHAT IS THE POINT? Also they charged a monthly fee!

With Fitbit, I've had none of those problems. SO MUCH BETTER at counting activity and no monthly fee. Plus I like the fact that it calculates my daily calorie intake based on my activity.

I agree with you. It motivates me to be more active and it also shows me where I've been too sedentary and also when I've been active without realizing it.

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.

It was the best "fitness" purchase I have ever made. It has definitely opened my eyes to how sedentary I really was even though I'd do 30-60 minutes of cardio daily. It has prompted me to walk during my lunch breaks and buy a mini stepper for the office that I step on for a few minutes here and there throughout the day. Idon't know if I could ever go back to not having one. I feel totally naked without it.

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you!

Never trade what you want the MOST for what you want at the MOMENT!

I'm not trying to look perfect... I just want to feel better, look great, know I'm healthy and be able to ROCK any outfit I choose.

I also feel naked without it. I make sure it is on before I leave the bathroom after getting dressed, that way I don't forget it.

Me too. The only time I take it off is to shower or to recharge it. It was definitely money well spent.

i feel nekid without mine

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
