10 days in, still confused!

Friday, August 23, 2013

Ok, so I haven't had much time to explore the site, but I still find it very confusing .. can someone tell me why some forums are labeled "sticky topic"?

On another note.. TGIF. I started a head cold earlier on this week and it was at its worse today. But all in all, I've had a good week in terms of watching what I eat.

My daughter and I gave up wheat 3 weeks ago; she's having a harder time with it since a lot of her favorite foods contain wheat. I've told her that she can eat it if it's too hard, but she's insisting on sticking to it (which makes me proud) she's lost 5 lbs so far -- as for me, the weight only just started coming off a little, but I'm not sure if that's because I've been limiting my calories or if it's the wheat. Either way, since I've given up wheat, I feel so much better! no bloating, no more pains .. it's great! Now all I have to do is give up the tortilla chips... I just have to find another satisfying snack! grapes or celery (I like those) anything that doesn't take prep work :)

I was hoping to explore the site this weekend but a friend of mine just invited himself over with his daughter, her boyfriend, her son and her sister... and me not feeling very well. Wonderful......

Oh well, he'll do the cooking emoticon

    Sparkpeople does get less confusing and overwhelming. I promise. A stick topic is a message board topic that always stays near the top of the feed. For example, in the "introduce yourself forum" the three most recently commented topics would be at the top and showing on the main page. The "New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here" could get pushed off and people would not see it. By making it sticky it is always at the top and visible.
    Please let us know when you find a good subsitute for tortilla chips. I have been on a gluten free diet for 18 months, and still eat more chips than I should.
