fitbit....i feel the burn, but not that much???

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

any fitbit users ever wonder about the calories burned on your fitbit??
i walk 90 minutes for about 10,000 plus steps, at the track, i walk around the house, shopping, etc, and add a little more steps to my tracker daily.
but at the end of the day, i have to question if i have really burned the number of calories fitbit reports.
there is no way my walking a 90 minute walk burned off over 2500 calories????
i think they base it on the number of calories you input, and that is something i just dont do on fitbit.
i always do my calorie tracking on SP.
I am adding weights back this week after having taken a little break.
starting out slowly but really wanting to increase my ability to hold a rep a little longer.
i really need to increase muscle and tone.
i am trying.

    It takes a lot of work to burn 2,500 calories, but gaining muscle is helps a lot. You go girl!!!

    I too use the SP activity rather than my fitbit. I don’t believe I’ve burned as much as indicated.

    I dont have a fitbit..yet.. so im not sure how the tracking works. However i agree 2500 calories burned from walking does seem excessive.
