Like many others I have tried many, many times to lose weight. Actually, I lost 50 pounds, several years ago, never gained it back but couldn't seem to lose more. I really believe that this time is different though, because of Spark People. I look forward to logging on every morning! Among other occupations, I am a writer, and ever since my thumbs were injured in a car accident, it has been difficult for me to use the keyboard, but I'm determined! My goal is to lose 45 pounds!

    Thank you for your comments on my blog. The blog was written on behalf of all older members and those younger ones who one day might be in the same situation!!
    I feel that the site serves a valuable purpose but that a lot of the people who it could really help are being frightened away by the problems caused by the changes. After all the fact is that the more members that belong to the site, the more money can be charged for advertising and the longer the site will stay free!! I find the advertising annoying and use an advertisement blocker but to many older people who were not bought up in the computer age, finding and installing an advertisement blocker is beyond them!! Yet it is these people, on fixed incomes who so need the help and company the site gives.

    emoticon for your much appreciated comment on my "Don't send a man to the grocery store!" blog.

    Actually, even with the mistakes made, your DSIL did a much better job of it than the fellow talked about in the video clip.

    God bless!
