Thu, 8 Mar 2012 09:48:47 EST Biggest Challenge Yet So as we all have i have found sparkpeople VERY HELPFUL in helping me with my calories,fat,carbs and so on as to how im doing throughout the day. well my internet was down for about 4 or 5 days and i had no access to sparkpeople and i was soo scared about going over or something and honestly did NOT want to get on the scale today because i knew id gave in to a few things and even had a feeling id went over and wasnt going to have a good weigh in this morning. but....i did write everything do...
