  • Yea hi I'm Maa and it's my 4th day here in the spark community, I've been following a diet, made up from what no salts, no sugars, and not too much facts. My 4th day and my brain is still screaming out for some lolllllllieeeessss hard out, but when I look at the weight I'm carrying I scream back NOOOO wayyyyy!, I slowly but surely continue with my diet, record all my food, get my strength exercises done, my walks and record my cardio to get a record of the calories I've lost. So far is been a well earned loss of calories, and yes this programe is working for me and hopefully for the next 5 months I'm trying to lose the weight for summer, so good luck to me and to you's.....Maaa - 7/10/2011 5:40:48 AM

  • Today was not a good day for me, had 2 low blood sugar thus eating my worst favorite sweets and then topping it with a Chinese dinner. Lol I am sure I will pay big for this, that means more work outs to come!!!!

    I think this site is a bit bewildering, too, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. One thing I'm not totally clear on is how a blog would differ from a community journal ... just more visible? - 5/27/2011 9:52:08 PM
  • There should be a privacy setting for posts which the SP user can set to "SP Friends only" rather than having to make their whole page private if their blog contains a progress photo or personal info that the SP user might not want ALL OF SP to read, yet still wants to be accessible for new visitors. - 3/9/2011 12:42:01 PM
  • I have been thinking about blogging for some time now and the hinderance has revealed itself to me! The same person who I didn't like to look at in the mirror, is the same one who wa hesitant about positng a blog, as people normally like to see a picture of the person talking to them! So YES, becoming healthier has prompted me to share what has worked for me so far! The confidence boost that losing weight gives you is INCREDIBLE! I will talk more about that when I begin blogging. Look forward to the interaction with each of you!! - 3/7/2011 10:18:55 AM

  • I would like "outside" people to be able to read my blog and see my Spark page. What is the direct link? For example,
    nibbles. It could be a great way to Spread the Spark.

  • I just started blogging hmm but how do you respond to people who commented on your blog. I feel bad because I would like to acknowledge. - 8/19/2010 1:38:46 PM
    I have blogged every day since I joined SP. What I have found is that people leave more comments if my blog is related to food, my weight loss, or my goals... not so much if something is happening in my city or I went to see a certain movie. Right now, I am having a problem coming up with ideas of blogs and its really getting me down. :( - 8/14/2010 5:03:45 PM

  • To Sophia1C - Know your "thrill" of riding a bike! I hadn't ridden since age 12, but decided this was something I could do. Bought a bike (too big) and promptly fell over on the driveway and hurt my elbow (but won't tell anyone - wore long sleeves - and it still bothers me!). Then last summer my grandsons were jumping from a ramp on their bikes and I thought that didn't look so hard. It's only 12 inches off the ground. Just a big bump. I could ride up and over (not jump, of course!) So, I rode to the top, got scared and didn't have enough speed to power me over the ramp, stopped on top and proceeded to fall over and off the ramp because there wasn't enough room for me to put my feet down and catch myself. Grandsons had a big belly laugh. Thankfully, I didn't hurt myself, but felt a little embarrassed and know that I can ride over that little ramp! I just have to get up enough courage to try it again! You know, I think I am 12 again and I can do anything with wheels! Good luck to you. - 5/13/2010 2:17:55 PM
