    An excellent idea Nicole. I rejoined SP after couple of months gap. Am currently logging my meals & exercise on a UK based site as it relates more to stuff I buy and cook in England. But I still very much value all the features & advice on SP. It is more fun than the other site & the social side is far more varied with people from all walks of life to contact. I am also more likely to join in with your 10 minute workouts at my computer than to do an exercise video on the TV! THANKS

    Thank you. I try to do an online exercise video at least five times a week. This will help so much.

    Thanks for all your help. I have never before used any kind of site and felt really dumb at first, but you made it easy and I feel right at home adding my two cents worth! I have more importantly learned an amazing amount about healthy living.
Thank you for such an amazing site.

  Thank you so much for your continued efforts to help all of us on our journey to becoming healthier, happier people. I for one could not do it without the support from SP.

I am really glad to hear that you have made it easier to view your fitness videos. It will make them much easier to access.

Thanks again from diet4evergirl

    I like the new update Nicole.
I actually found some new articles that I haven't read. (I really, really appreciate the spell check on the message centers.
Now, if I can just remember to always check my own and practice patience
with other writers when they don't.....)
Thanks for all you do...Hugs, Joy

    Thank you for the improvements of the site! ♥

I would have a suggestion though. It would be great to have a link allowing us to add an exercise video (and exercise demo too) to our Fitness plan, right there on the page where it is located. Thanks for reading! :-)
