Complain, complain, complain

Sunday, June 27, 2010

That's me.

I complain about not being able to get spark points for log-in. I'm so shallow that I need the free points for motivation to lose weight, get my blood sugar under control and generally live a higher quality life.

I complain about not being able to track my food eaten. Actually, this is probably a legitimate complaint, every time I try to get a whole day logged in, somewhere during the process, I hit the report button and then I can't add any more food. The link just goes dead. I have to log out and back in again. Frustrating.

I complain about, well, nothing else right now.

To count my blessings, I have met wonderful people here. From Tracey, who gives voice to what I think; to my new friends on the 'Turtle' team, who share my concerns about my blood sugar and offer advice that I can actually take.

Over all it's more than just a wash, I'd stay just for the people, but I'll take the quality of life improvements as well.

    Keep going. You are able to do this even though you complain. If we didn't have anything to complain about then we wouldn't know what to do.

    I can't figure out why you can't run the report and then add more food. I do it all of the time. I have even went back a day when I remember I didn't add something.

Something is going on.

Try and journal on a piece of paper until you get it figured out. That might help. emoticon

    Hi there Lewis!

I have consistently received helpful responses to technical/SparkSite issues from here:

It seems that SparkStaff oversee this Message Board. Worth a try! Oh, and I notice that someone else is complaining about the wheel spinning today.

Blessed be!

    Do your best Sweetie, there are times when the Spark page acts up, but I keep a journal also, so just in case I still have my eye on my goals at all times

Hope you hang in there you are doing so good emoticon
