Whoo hoo! My first blog. I have to admit I am a little nervous, but why? We are all friends here, if nothing else I am having one of those frequent chats with myself that drives my family nuts! But hey I have to talk to someone who actually listens (most of the time)LOL!
I have been on Spark People for @ 2 weeks now and I love it. I have to admit that I really was not sure what to expect, as I was only looking for a way to track my food and find an easier way to calorie count. When it flashed up on Google, I thought why not give it a try, what have you got to lose? Imagine my surprise with all that I have gained! Tools galore! Friends that support and encourage you! People who CARE! It isn't like I don't have friends out in the 'real' world, but it is like finding pieces of your soul, with people who have the same or similar issues. I send a huge THANK YOU to my spark friends. Those I have already and those who are yet to be.
One downside is I am on the computer a huge amount. As I have to see who is doing what; what success's have been achieved; what goodies have arrived and who to send to; And of course updating all your nutrition and fitness. But I am finding I am getting up earlier in the day to accomplish what needs to be done and more, so that I can spend the time I need to and desire to on the computer.
Thanks for listening! And again thanks for sharing the goodness of your hearts, pieces of your soul!
