Hey Spark People are doing a lot of things right!

I have taken spark people to task for screwing up the fitness minutes tracking with upper limits. I don't like the point system where they give you bonuses for buying stuff or hanging around on the site reading. Now I understand that they give fitness minutes bonuses? Bizzarre in terms of a true motivational system. Reminds me of teachers giving good grades for carrying her books or bringing him an apple.

Anyway---- this site does a bang up job with the short readable articles. It is by and large sound and well researched also. The comprehensiveness is overwhelming but I love it.

I bought the "coaching sessions". I love them! they are really short structured reminders and literal instruction. The Program component is really well done. The structure helps me since I am retired organize my time on here. ( Remember, fingers hitting keys and eyeballs moving across a screen, and butts wiggling in a chair burn very few calories).
So if you can afford $5 a month or so go for it. I tend to use stuff because I bought it.
I also love the community aspect of SP. That people read and comment and encourage one another is cool.

    My wife thinks I am obsessed with weight loss. My response is well if you had a disease that is documented to shorten your life expectancy, and lower the quality of those years and you could do something about it, wouldn't it be responsible to do everything you could to fight that disease?

    My wife is obsessed with clay!
