Spark Addiction

Friday, May 17, 2013

emoticon After yesterday's outage at SparkPeople, I was very surprised to learn how dependent on the site I am. I felt lost that I couldn't track my food or exercise. I was upset that I couldn't check in with my Spark Coach. I was afraid my streaks would be lost. What a disaster!
I guess "you never know what you've got until it's gone."

Today I am very thankful and comforted knowing that the Spark world is here. emoticon emoticon

    I really missed it too- I really depend on seeing and reading how everyone else is doing to lift me up- especially when I am struggling. A lot of us are addictive personalities- being addicted to sparkpeople has no calories so that works for me and its free! emoticon

    I was also going a little stir crazy, I so wanted to track my food. I do believe we can become addicted to this site, as we are addicted to food, or whatever other vice.
My son was a drug addict, or is, I guess they call it a recovering addict, hes been clean 2 years now, but hes become somewhat addicted to NA.
I became addicted to walking, I really did, I was pushing myself so hard, walking between an hour and two hours at a time up to 2 times a day and I broke my foot.
I was devastaed not be be able to walk, and I came to realize just how dependent on walking I had become.
I know its a healthy vice, but it made me slow down and look at my other alternatives.
Well, I guess all we can do when SP is out is to write it in a journal, good luck to everyone.

    I feel the same way. I didn't get many points at all or get a chance to spin either wheels. I hope will not have to any of those again.
