When I started with Spark People I entered my start weight and my goal weight. Didn't meet the goal weight by the end of 2011 so I re-adjusted it. My BMI says I'm in the 'normal' range. I want to lower it so I have more wiggle room for th... Read more

Brrrrr I could not seem to warm up today. My ankles & feet were chilled. Sat with a shawl wrapped around my legs, bundling my feet and I was STILL cold. Ended up putting on boots just to generate a sweat & feel some heat! Feeling cold ag... Read more
