I really have missed SP!!!

Sunday, April 22, 2012

I am technologically challenged. Seriously. So my email provider has been telling SP that my email address is not valid, I reset everything, and I'll get my email prompts about my Spark Friends new blogs etc...for a day or so...and then I get nothing...I have tried to resolve this...but then I get frustrated with my ineptitude with my computer..and I then give up...it's such a time sucker...so I haven't been Sparking very much...without those emails I just seem to lose momentum...no reminders of all of you working hard to meet your goals...

So, I've been exercising daily, which isn't a new thing at all for me, but my snacking has gotten out of hand the past couple of weeks. My tracking has been sketchy I have GAINED weight instead of losing. This just has to stop. I've reset my goals and am cleaning out the pantry.

I am thinking of changing my email provider, at least for SP, apparently, my problem with my email is common with SP and my provider (according to SP). Maybe then I can be connected to my support here on SP.

I'm sorry to have been such a poor friend lately, it just takes a lot of time to search through my SP friends individually to see who has posted a new blog...

On a positive note, I have been able to get outside and garden and I'm really enjoying being outside, and I just naturally am more active when the weather is pleasant.

I hope everyone has been doing well with their goals, hope to catch up with folks soon!!

    I have multiple email accounts. You might be able to simply get a free email with something like gmail or yahoo specifically for SparkPeople. I didn't have any trouble receiving mine on the yahoo account I set it up with, though I just found I got too many notifications and shut that off - I keep track from the SparkPages directly.

    So sorry, sounds frustrating. I wouldn't know how to deal with it myself. But it's good to hear you are persevering. Hope you've had a great Sunday. I appreciate hearing from you whenever you can get online!

    I am so happy to see you back on SP, I was getting worried about you. I even told my husband that I was missing you. You are one of the reasons I have succeeded in my journey. Hope you get your computer problems worked out soon. Thanks again for being such a good SP friend.

    Sheri, I don't know if you know this 'cause it took me a year to discover it myself :), but if you go to the heading "COMMUNITY" at the top of any spark page and scroll down to "friend feed", you can see your friends' status updates, goodies given, blogs commented on and posted. It is a time saver for sure!

    Sorry for you tech troubles. I'm not a very good trouble-shooter either. After I recently had my computer service provider come out to fix my connection problem, I now can't post pictures and don't know why. Frustrating!

    Good to see you again and thanks for the goodie! Happy day to you!

    Don't you just love computers? grrrrrr emoticon I use gmail- it has worked like a charm and so far seems to go well with the SP site and emails. I hope you get it worked out soon!! Have a peaceful Sunday!

    I had a glitch for awhile of everything going to spam and it is really hard not getting the updates. Would you think about setting up a separate gmail account and having those emails forward to your normal email system?

    emoticon Happy Sunday to you!
    Glad you are here and sparking despite the tech glitches that drive us crazy at times.
    I understand the power of good weather and getting outside to garden. I find it very healing.
