Tuesday, September 20, 2016      3 comments

I like Spark People and I'm glad it's a free site but with all the ads, it really slows down my computer so it is difficult to just "pop on" to update daily. It takes a good 30 min or more, for pages to load, ect. just to update exercise and foo... Read more

I've held onto 180lbs!
Saturday, August 17, 2013      1 comments

My yo-yo weight is a nightmare. I know people fluctuate and that is why you don't weigh everyday. I know this but I am addicted to the scale. To me it is a motivator! If I weigh at night and it isn't where I want it to be, I work harder the next... Read more

This is the same thing that happened to me the first time I "started" Spark People, I get very annoyed at the tracking. It takes too much time from my otherwise happy go lucky day. I hate tracking food and exercise. I do have an app on my p... Read more
