Feeling disappointed

Sunday, June 07, 2015

Feeling a little disappointed and confused today. I spent 13 hrs yesterday at Disney World and being an annual passholder, I don't go on all the rides or wait in line more than 15 minutes. We also did not use the tram and walked to and from the gates/parking lot. We do mostly walking around, people watch and take in a couple shows indoors when we get too hot. Imagine my surprise when my Spark tracker logged me in for only 150 fitness minutes and only just over 11,000 steps. It showed onlly 1 active event all da6 for 11 min only and that was walking out. The steps even measured way less between walking in and out of the park and I know the gates and the car did not move! I do anywhere from 6000-8000 on a sit down job through the week walking during my 2 15 min breaks and then around the house cooking/doing laundry. It also showed only 4 miles at Disney and I log around 3-5 at home. I know I should feel good about knowing I was doing something but I'm also visual and like to see results. I'm not seeing it at the scale and have gone up 2 lbs but as I've been told, "muscle weighs more". I've also been eating less and feel like I'm getting no where. I'm going to stick with it, but it's frustrating!

    you can go to your fitness page and reclassify your steps

    mine today said I did 9,408 steps so far at 4.3 miles for 94 minutes total
    I will reclassify that based on what my pace was for the day

    I use a Digi-Walker and it does track steps just fine. I don't know anything about all those other fancy trackers. Sorry it doesn't seem to be correctly tracking. :(

    Breeze app counts your steps perfectly.

    I disconnected my fitness tracker because it stopped reporting accurately; I've just gone back to manually entering my fitness minutes.

    I spent a day at the Maine Fiber Frolic, and didn't get nearly the steps I get at home, but I tend to walk faster at home and even though you are on your feet sometimes you are not walking much, plus fitbit now only counts active time when it is at least 10 minutes at a time and events like this you are not likely to spend 10 minutes straight activity.

    Sounds like there is something wrong with that tracker!!

    I have gone through this myself. I workout for 2 hours a day everyday and I don't have a sit down job (for the most part) and I slowly would loose the weight or not at all. In time things caught up with me and now I have lost the weight. Just keep up with what you doing and enjoy life while your at it. By the way, Disney is my favorite place to be!
