Hmmm . . . I may lose a few spark friends here, but this needs to be said. I apologize in advance to the those of you that this post does not apply to! I may even be a little cranky today because Pooh is being a jerk! Anyway, here goes!
I began a spark page because this site has a community of people who are also trying to lose weight and therefore we have common ground. Some of us have more in common than others, but I try to be fair and supportive and say hello to ALL my spark friends daily as a way to encourage (and to be honest, just friendly) ! It is in my nature. :)
Do I need to or really have time to spend 45 minutes checking all 62 friends pages daily (or every other day)? NO! But I make the time because it could be the difference in someone giving up on themselves and not!
Here is my point! If my frequent posts to your page annoy you . . please remove me as your spark friend. It will save me time. I hate to be blunt, but I received an email today saying that my emails (I do not generally email individuals- must be coming from sparkpeople - because I get tons too!) were annoying and could I please limit my posts to once a week!
My response to that was to remove that individual from my list. Sorry, but I do not wish to be chastised like a child simply because I was being friendly and thinking that I was helping, even being supportive and encouraging! So, rather than take it out on everybody and not post at all, I would prefer that the people annoyed simply remove themselves from my group!
To all my girls, you know who you are! Sorry for the rant! Please also know that I do not expect my spark friends to post on my page all the time, unless they feel like it! :)
