SparkPeople: Love It!
Monday, January 16, 2012
OK, so yesterday, I voiced my objection to SparkPeople members' blog posts potentially being indexed by search engines and the Share Bar really bugged me (again, the Share Bar *can* be turned off in preferences, but it's not obvious). www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
Today I just want to say that I love SP for all the information offered to members, the great tools for recording activity and nutrition (much easier to use than Weight Watchers) and for tons of positive motivation.
I paid for Weight Watchers Online and Jillian Michael's online program and both offered tools that were difficult to use, crummy mobile apps and a community that wasn't overly welcoming at times. Over the months, I've seen SparkPeople make some adjustments to their website to make it more user friendly and the mobile app works great. The recipes are dee-lish, too.
So, there's my positive contribution for today. Not bad for a Monday! :-)
