Great you were able to get your Nutrition tracker set up. I have tweaked mine to go faster. Are you using the search database it is amazing how many foods i find there. i do add my own foods from packages which I rarely use but they are easy to delete.Any time ask and i will try i am not the graetest with computers but i do have success with the nutrition tracker.

I used the old tracker for fitness for 2 years and when the new one came out I could not grasp it at all. I use Resistance bands and love the way i can manage to not injure my muscles. The dumb bells are harder for me since I have carpal tunnel issues from my sewing business.
I also love to use Leslie Sansonne videos when indoors you can walk a mile with her on a bath mat size piece of my basement you do not need a lot of space.
I also have a pedometer i have had a lot of them they fall off so i make certain I make a leash for it and use a safety pin. This is the longest and my favorite OMRON it stores 7 days of steps and mileage and at midnight it starts the next day. Non of my expensive ones had those features and it was less than $20.00 from Spark store. Walgreen's has them too.

Knox set up your trackers there are videos for both. If you need help just ask for it and someone will help you.
There is a place om the spark point that says do a web search click on that and the web search will come up. It has "WEB" and "SPARK" on it use the Spark side and ask it anything you need it almost always works for me.
I have asked it how to set up my ticker. How to put photos on my page and I am older than you I print it off and follow it. HUGS Pat in Augusta. emoticon emoticon

Hello....I am new to sparkpeople and am also from Oxford county.....I am a 50 year old wife and mother of two grown children.....and would love to connect with someone from the area to walk with or just be encouragement for each other....I am so new to the website that I am having a hard time learning how to get around it...but I am sure with time it will come....I live a very busy life and really find it hard to spend a lot of time on the website to learn more about it....so any tips would be wonderful....Thanks....

Each day is a new day and a gift from God.....

Walking buddies are so very motivated we walk in Augusta once a week hardly ever miss a week. I hope you will find some more people . I do suggest you try the map that shows where member are. Pat in Augusta. Too far to be a walking buddy but I wanted to encourage you to keep trying.
Post again and limit where you want to be instead of Oxford county its a very big place.Pat emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
