Hey, <BR> I have been trying not to eat out as my first step towards weight loss. I have lost weight before, but since have put it back on. I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on what they do when hey are having an intense craving? Any ideas would help. <BR> <BR> Thanks, :) Sat, 23 Nov 2013 19:50:01 EST Getting Back at it! It has been a while since I have been on Spark people. I went back up since. But, I am getting started again. I am starting by setting a goal not too eat out on my own. This has always been my biggest downfall. I really want too do this.! <BR> <BR> So here's to getting back on the wagon!! Thu, 7 Nov 2013 01:13:27 EST Chat mode I think we should invent a chat mode for spark people. Something where we could just talk too random people online who are in the chat mode. I think it would be a great way for support. Tue, 18 Jun 2013 17:38:15 EST Advice: Small Steps For most of this last year i kept trying too do too much at once. And since starting spark people a few weeks ago I have only done small things. And I am actually really happy with it. The first week i didn't really even do anything. For a week and a half all i did is look at blogs and other spark stuff. However, all these things kept building up in my head and giving me ideas and inspiring me. This last week i took on a challenge too walk an hour a night. Even if it was split up. The first 2... Fri, 7 Jun 2013 09:33:32 EST Help please!! D: So i had a bunch of messages in my email about people adding me in spark and getting mail. And i assumed it would show me when i got on the actual spark site. So i deleted them and I cant find where their friend request is. Also I apparently deleted my confirmation email so i cant send mail. Is their some place i can talk too like an admin for help? <BR> <BR> Thank you so much for your help!! Wed, 5 Jun 2013 05:05:11 EST Tracking Learning the importance of tracking today. I had 4 glasses of milk over the course of the day. Found out that it is actually like 800 calories D: Glad i've started tracking and learning these things though. Helping me become more aware of my habits. Tue, 4 Jun 2013 03:48:21 EST Change is Hard! As the title says change is really hard!! despite doing very little the week and a half i've been on spark i have made some changes though. Most of these though are very tiny and haven't really effected my weight. Tonight I took on the challenge too track my food even though i knew it would be over. I was shocked that it was twice my allowed though. I ate out today, and was expecting bad but not quit what i got. Think its a good thing too see though and help me realize how bad my diet is. And... Mon, 3 Jun 2013 01:02:19 EST Just a thought. I don't know if anyone else is in the same boat as me. But i've found it actually really hard too start things like this sometimes. So i had a thought about it today and it was that i was looking more and more at spark stuff and if you can't start exercising or completely changing your diet right away just spend like an hour looking through spark blogs and recipes. I think it helps build up and makes you want too make changes more and makes it slightly easier. Sun, 26 May 2013 14:50:43 EST New too Spark Hey, i'm brand new too spark people. And blogging. Can we use blog too ask for peoples advice or is it just too say things we learned? <BR> Thu, 23 May 2013 04:22:12 EST
