    I suppose Ill just set it to lightly active then and if I lose more weight than 0.5 pounds thats fine too! I already reached my goal, but after a few months of eating more junk food than normal I gained about 3 pounds and want to get them off and get rid of these bad habits.

    My experience is that sedentary in MFP is about 4,000 steps and active is about 12,000 steps--it varies because Fitbit's calories burned algorithm appears to be more sophisticated than just "x steps = y calories", pace (and changes in elevation? not sure) also affect it.
