I discovered for myself that I can make SparkPeople work for me by dedicating an hour a week on Sunday by reading and records-keeping. I honestly don't have time to do everything daily (or nightly, in my case). I can record glucose as my 7 day average each week, my weight each week, and I'll use the date back-button to record exercise for each day. I tend to gather lots of little scraps of paper in my purse, but I date and time them so I know what goes where. Now that my One Weigh class is meeting only every 2 weeks, and will soon end, I need something to help me keep on track. So today is day one. emoticon

    It doesn't matter how often you utilize the tools, but that you DO use them. I understand not having the time daily to do the updates, I have 3 kids and am very busy with work, volunteering and social activities that take up alot of my time. I pre-plan my meals (portion size, calorie count, fat grams and repeat meals often) I exercise 6 days a week and I log my food as I'm eating on my cell phone. Once a week, I do my weigh-ins, check-ins, etc. So trust me when I tell ya, I understand. Be proud of yourself for using SP, even if just once a week, at least you're taking steps towards better health!
