Thanks! I've been just trying to stay away unless I'm dying to know how many calories are in something, but I've been doing this long enough that I'm starting to memorise how many I can burn in a certain amount of time with certain activities and also how many calories are in the food I eat, so I just use SP as a reference and also a support network to catch up with other Sparkers. Good luck with your weekends! emoticon

Me too - I can't wait to get on line and see what's been happening, tracking, getting points, see if anyone's talked to me - I feel like a big kid! Made a strong decision to not do SP at the weekends,- still try to do all the stuff but just not go on line. Maybe that'll help you.

You're so not alone! My addiction to SP is so bad that I recently decided to just stop coming on for days at a time as I was spending hours and hours pouring over articles, replying to message boards, tracking food and exercise and trying to get more SparkPoints, so I finally said, 'No more!' and pulled myself away. While consistency is what this site is about, spending too much time online wasn't helping me! I'm feeling a lot better having regrouped and not obsessing so much. I've learned what I need to on here about portion control and healthy eating and exercise has always been there, so I only use the website as a guide or when I just am curious about calorie counts or calories burned. You'll be ok. Just try to ration time as others have suggested.

I was like that when I first started but once I got down to a better weight I began to ration my time on line. It was not just tracking my food -I was addicted to the message boards! I have met some great new friends thru Spark People and now I keep in touch or meet up with them in a different way. Good luck!!

oh thats all of us when we first start- lol. This site in particular is so fantastic, I can spend hours here, but I too have to make a conscious effort to move away from the screen and get myself moving (at least some of the time!)
Enjoy it, but make plans to do something active for the same amount of time you spend online maybe?!?!

You are no different. I have been on SP for 9 month and still hooked.

I love this site, and ebay aswell, but since I started I have been hooked, always seem to be at the computer, I need to leave it and do some exercise or maybe even some housework. I at the computer now, obviously, Weight going down, lost 3lb again this week so it working but what would happen if I moved.
Is this just me or is it normal. Never done on line before, always went to ww meetings. Enjoy this though.
