Recent lack of posting

I haven't been posting as much for the past week. One of our goals this year was to lose weight, as well as switch to full time vegetarians. Late in December Erin found SparkPeople. It's supposed to help us track our calories, lose weight, and accomplish our goals.

I like the idea of the site. It wants to be more than just a weight-loss site, it wants to be a total life goals tracking site. Currently almost all support on the site is for losing weight, there is a forum for getting out of debt, but it's fairly limited.

There's a lot going on at the site, which has been keeping me pretty busy. Initially there is some setup that is a little time consuming. They have a database of over 10,000 foods, but it seems that almost everything we've eaten hasn't been on the list already. That's ok, because the site lets you customize and add your own food, and remembers it. As we continue the foods that we eat regularly will be saved, and save us time.

If you are interested in losing weight and doing it the right way by changing your lifestyle, take the time to track it. You may as well get some support while you're doing it, so go to SparkPeople. The best thing. It's free!
