This Erie Sparker is doing well! No weight loss this week, but no weight gain, either, so I'm pretty happy. Getting over a respiratory illness and now I'm excited to get back on my bike, since the weather is warming.

Haven't lost weight lately, but still having fun and starting to get my focus back. Just finished the last set of swim/dance lessons for my daughter - now gym time is for me.

Treated my family to dinner at Sarah's and viewing the sunset on the beach. The park is just so green already. Really inviting..... planning time to walk, play, and kite fly on the next trip.

Just got back from Cleveland. Went to see Cirque Du Soleil. Great show, but I may have slipped a bit in the healthy eating department LOL

Amazing, in less than a 24 hour span, I have seen 5 deer, 13 turkeys, a raccoon, two (fat) chipmunks, and countless birds all out my window in my back yard. I love Edinboro... :-)

Hmmm, Not sure why it wouldn't send you out a email then. I have to admit it's been a long day and I am brain dead at the moment, I'll look at my settings and see if there is anything I might see that could help. Will be tomorrow, bed is calling now :)

AWESOME Datmama4!!! I pretty much did the same thing to start. Amazing how just tracking what you eat and becoming more aware of it helps so much. I added in the walking not to long after and working onto some gym time soon. Running would be nice but my knees have had a few to many years of sports and aren't that willing to comply yet. LOL Keep up the GREAT job and check in when you can. Love hearing from other folks doing the 'health" thing :-)

PS And isnt thing weather just too dang good!!!!!

Just joined the Erie team today. I'm pretty new to SparkPeople but am enjoying everything about it so far. For right now, I'm tracking my nutrition and trying to fit in more activity as time allows. I've lost five pounds since I started paying attention to what I eat, and have about 60 more pounds to lose overall. Not sure how long it will take, but I'm figuring out my battle plan slowly but surely.

Was talking about walking. Which is pretty much the whole exercise program at the moment LOL Along with a major diet/way of eating change. Planning to start yoga at the Y and home. Need to do more but going at it slowly. To much damage to my body over the years and then years of inactivity. Discovered last year jumping into it to fast ends up putting me out of commission. LoL Yeah, seems as if it's just us here. Now and then someone new pops on. Trying to keep them here and active. Also signing up friends to sparkpeople and trying to get them involved. I'm in Edinboro most days so do the walking here around the college or lake.

Are you talking for driving trips? I don't drive that far and when I do I have a GPS. Or are you talking about for walking? I use a track that has the mileage marked but I don't honestly walk much. It bothers my back. It looks like it's mostly just me and you on here, doesn't it? Diet going well? What kind of diet/exercise program do you do?

A tragic discovery!!! Here I have been using a certain app to track my miles and times. On a whim I tried another app. Low and behold two different results!! The new app gave me shorter distances recorded. On to the investigating side. Car ride tracking miles. On line plotting out miles of routes. Trying to discover what app was more accurate. Reading the FAQ's of the apps to see if I can calibrate (I do like my first app so am hoping there is a way) The research continues but thought I'd toss the question out here and see what others use and how confident they feel with them. I have not mentioned names as to not skew any findings.

Hi Lou,
Heading off to church, then out to dinner for son's b-day. Unfortunately, he picked S & S Buffet :( so I'll have to make good choices. Great weather is supposed to be coming up this week. I do all my exercise at the Y. Used to walk but where I live isn't conducive to it unless I drive somewhere. But maybe when the weather gets nice. I like to take grandkids to the park for bike riding and I walk while they ride. Have a wonderful day.
