Sunday. Weigh-in day. New scale. New procedure. I am "calibrating" my scale with a 5 lb weight before I step on it myself. :) However much it's off I am just adding/subtracting from what I weigh and I am feeling pretty good about that. ... Read more

Today the scale has registered as high as 217 (no way!) and as low as 211.8 (wow, that would be nice but I don't believe that either). These weights were not taken hours apart but seconds apart. Two days ago it read 213.4 which seems more real... Read more

So it was back in July last year that I joined Sparkpeople and had a successful 6 months or so of exercise and tracking what I was eating and managed to lose about 50 lbs. Then the holidays rolled around and I wasn't as interested in tracking s... Read more
is there a way to track sugar in the Nutrition Tracker?
Tuesday, October 05, 2010      3 comments

I am just blind? Has anyone been able to add sugar to the things they track in the Nutrition Tracker? If it's really not there, then why not?! I just read a Sparkpeople article about HFCS and sugar. It mentioned that I should be not be exce... Read more
