One word of caution: There is no way to make blogs private or for friends only, and no way to turn off commenting. People will comment. They have called me a liar, told me I was doing it wrong, etc. Blog at your own risk.
As a few other people have mentioned, this article does NOT give any information about how to start a blog on SparkPeople. I have looked around and tried to ask the question in FAQs but still can't figure it out. Clear instructions would be helpful!
Thank you so very much for starting sparkpeople I am so greatful .. looking forward in this helping to motivate and help me understand about my eating patterns and exercise or lack of it . Thank you again :) my first day today Oct. 11, 2015
October 5,2015 is My very first day. I am in hopes that this will help me make a change for a healthier life. Nothing else seems to work so far. My goal is to lose 2 lbs per week . so wish me luck for this week .
Am new to this both Sparks & blogging. So far so good with the menu & exercise. After 5 days on my doing both diet & exercise and loosing 4 lbs I had a family reunion yesterday with lots of good food s. figured I'd gain . but I tried to watch my portion sizes, so not only did I not gain weight but lost1/2 a lb. A great surprise. At this rate I should meet my goal. But i understand there will be days when I fall off the track, but then will have to get back on with out feeling guilty..Tomorrow is a new day and a fresh restart. thanks for all the help.
I have been blogging on my page for a while now and would like to share it with the community. I don't know how to do that. Any help would be appreciated.
After reading this article, i still can't find how start my own blog.
Thanks so much for your "Blog direction". Will now be able to start one thanks to you : )
So I started just little over a week ago I got on the scales and gained one pound trying to stick very close to the calorie intake and workout for 2.5 hours every other day. so what can I eat when I am hungry in between meals. unfortunately I will be on the road for the next 5 days eating out all of the time and not exercising the way I want to. I know I will gain weight over the weekend. But my main question is what can I eat in between meals? I am hungry but afraid to eat anything for fear of jeopardizing my goal. i am ready to start skipping meals. Discouraged.
I cannot find info on e-mail subscriptions for outsiders to access my blog.
I lost 3lbs wow I'm surprised at myself, but I need to keep doing what I'm doing to keep a promise to myself that I am worthy, that I am someone I can grow to love again. I can be whatever I put my mind up to. I love myself, and I will continue to love myself. 3lbs is a start and now I must continue the good choices that has got me this far in 7days and beyond....
How do I start a blog? I see "Learn about Blogging", but I don't see how to start one.
I was becoming frustrated with the lack of weight loss, even though I am following the program and exercising 3-4 times a week. I have increased my protein intake and this seems to be helping.
hi I am new to this sight and will see if I can make it work. I am 76 so bear with me. will say more later. Auntnet15 from Texas
i have been dieting and exercising and getting healthy and decided to update my goals and determination and lose the rest of the weight i want to lose and get motivated by asking for encouragement. and giving back as well. I explored some very good new programs that are very professional looking just this am but they were difficult to use and lacked the access they promised and found myself trying to start again and again and gave up and came back to spark to find they have updated here in a very helpful and use ful way making it easier to use I was very pleased with this and to find old recipes i saved thanks spark
