Okay, fixed now

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

Whew, it's fixed now. I guess I over-reacted, as usual. Sorry about that!


Today I opened my SparkPage to see my weight as 119 kgs instead of 119 lbs. Which puzzled me, of course, but it wasn't that big a deal to change it back. Now I'm trying to enter my workouts into my fitness tracker and it showed that the workouts during which I'd normally burn 81 calories are only burning FOURTEEN calories for me! Ten minutes of cardio=14 calories?

I looked back at the last few weeks' fitness minutes and the calories burned...everything has been divided by half, sometimes quartered...I feel so lost, I feel like crying...I worked hard and thought I was burning enough calories...now Sparkpeople tells me I'm barely burning 100?

What's going on here? Can anyone help me out?

I mean, if that's true...I would have to work out for hours...and that's just really depressing.

    That does sound totally off. For 10 minutes of LOW impact cardio at my weight (118.5) it says I would burn 43 calories, for HIGH it says 55. At your weight it is much harder to burn 80+ calories in 10 minutes. What exactly do you do for cardio? I would say something is definitely wrong. Try an alternate internet calories burned calculator and check that for comparison. Either way, you say you are working hard, so you can't beat yourself up over it! Don't give up!

    Wow. That sounds very odd. I'd contact Spark People and find out what the heck's going on. I know that I saw a link to a "tech support" site on here once. I hope that doesn't happen to my page! I'll be totally lost!
