  • 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
  • Okay here goes, My name is Linda, I had a lap banding in 09-2009/ I have only lost
    30-35 lbs. I started at 300 lbs i now weigh 276 by my scales. The dr's scales are about 5-2.5 lbs heavier. I am finding out that this web site is very informative, and the info is
    very helpful to me. Just wish me luck in my further transition. With God's help and assistant i will suceed - 5/9/2010 8:10:52 PM

    I have been all over the pages to find how to write a blog. I had a friend that told me not to try to do Sparke because it was not friendly to use. She said, it's very complicated to figure out. Well, I do agree. So I will not be using Sparks, and I will not recommend it to anyone to use. Not a friendly site to use. I did everything it said, and me nor 2 of my friends could find a place where you could write a blog. Thanks, for nothing! - 5/6/2010 2:06:42 AM
