Blogging Basics for SparkPeople Members


  • Word of advice for PC users: Write your blog entry in a word processing document and copy and paste it into your blog. I typed 30 minutes yesterday and accidentally hit a key that deleted the whole thing using the blog I had done this before on other sites but forgot about the risk.

    That said, blog on!!! - 4/23/2016 6:35:18 PM
  • I was on sparks PEOPLE 2 YRS AGO ,AND LOST 41 POUNDS . YEAH! but being lax and too confident slowing regaining I have gained back 8 pounds, sob .
    but decided to get back on the band wagon and take back my life once again.
    I know the recipes surely help me and logging what I eat. planned to start yesterday and did start then I realized at noon it was Lent ( church) and we signed up to eat there the week before. what to do? what to do? I realized I already tracked my brk fst and lunch so I was pretty good ,(on calories yet) figured I would nibble ... when i got home and calculated what I ate,.... I still had 300 left for a snack so I proved to my self that tracking what I eat proves ,I can do it. - 2/18/2016 7:19:22 AM
    One word of caution: There is no way to make blogs private or for friends only, and no way to turn off commenting. People will comment. They have called me a liar, told me I was doing it wrong, etc. Blog at your own risk. - 12/22/2015 12:42:26 PM
    As a few other people have mentioned, this article does NOT give any information about how to start a blog on SparkPeople. I have looked around and tried to ask the question in FAQs but still can't figure it out. Clear instructions would be helpful! - 11/29/2015 9:29:09 AM

    Am new to this both Sparks & blogging. So far so good with the menu & exercise. After 5 days on my doing both diet & exercise and loosing 4 lbs I had a family reunion yesterday with lots of good food s. figured I'd gain . but I tried to watch my portion sizes, so not only did I not gain weight but lost1/2 a lb. A great surprise. At this rate I should meet my goal. But i understand there will be days when I fall off the track, but then will have to get back on with out feeling guilty..Tomorrow is a new day and a fresh restart. thanks for all the help. - 9/28/2015 8:20:36 AM

    So I started just little over a week ago I got on the scales and gained one pound trying to stick very close to the calorie intake and workout for 2.5 hours every other day. so what can I eat when I am hungry in between meals. unfortunately I will be on the road for the next 5 days eating out all of the time and not exercising the way I want to. I know I will gain weight over the weekend. But my main question is what can I eat in between meals? I am hungry but afraid to eat anything for fear of jeopardizing my goal. i am ready to start skipping meals. Discouraged. - 5/6/2015 10:16:43 AM
  • I cannot find info on e-mail subscriptions for outsiders to access my blog. - 5/4/2015 3:44:28 PM
    I lost 3lbs wow I'm surprised at myself, but I need to keep doing what I'm doing to keep a promise to myself that I am worthy, that I am someone I can grow to love again. I can be whatever I put my mind up to. I love myself, and I will continue to love myself. 3lbs is a start and now I must continue the good choices that has got me this far in 7days and beyond.... - 4/5/2015 9:55:28 AM
  • How do I start a blog? I see "Learn about Blogging", but I don't see how to start one. - 3/23/2015 8:34:51 AM

    I was becoming frustrated with the lack of weight loss, even though I am following the program and exercising 3-4 times a week. I have increased my protein intake and this seems to be helping. - 3/11/2015 5:18:40 PM
