The other day I went for a 50 minute walk and when I returned and checked on the Fitbit site, I had 40 Very Active Points. I entered the information on MFP (Start time and duration of walk) and it immediately deleted the Very Active Points from FB. The same thing happened yesterday. It seems when I enter my exercise info on MFP it affects my Very Active Points on FB. Am I doing something wrong? I am in a competition with my friends at work and it's very aggravating that I keep falling farther and farther behind in Very Active Points since I joined MFP.

This may not be the best answer or even the right answer, but I found the same and decided for this and other reasons to only track fitness activity on FitBit and food and water on MFP. MFP is far better with the food database and the community support which is why I track it this way. Others track it differently and hopefully, you will get some other suggestions and go from there.

Thanks so much for answering so quickly. That is exactly what I had decided to do, too! Just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong and there was a quick fix. Thanks, again for your help. Happy Fitbitting!

You're not supposed to put the exercises in both places. Let Fitbit enter it and do not enter it here. That is a double entry. FB is very accurate. The only thing you log here is things like weight lifting and things FB won't log.
