Spark People

I want to just talk about this website for a few minutes. 

I love it.  I love it because it has a few key things for me that I like, and because it is FREE.  Most Weight loss sites have a cost associated with them.  This one does not.

What I like most about this site... it has a nutrition tracker and Exercise routines that show you how to complete the exercise.. and you can print them, save them, and view them all for free.

There are message boards, challenges, and teams you can join.. including horse related ones!

Check it out.. here is the link to Sparkpeople.com

Has anyone else used this site?  Are you on there daily?  I used to be, and have just gone back to it...

The food tracking feature is my favorite.  At the end of the day, it gives you a nutritional anaylisis of how you did that day based on what you are tracking.
The daily nutrition report is one of my favorite things I have found.  It can really help to keep you on track with food.. it tells you where you met your goals, where you exceeded in places and what you need to work on.. for me.. folate is something I lacked yesterday and I went way over in Sodium and Fat.. This helps you adjust in better time, then looking back over a week of choices..

Thoughts?  Anyone use something different?  Better?

Happy Tuesday.. Today I am trying Zumba.. and I have no idea what it is.. but it is included in my membership and I thought I would give it a try.  I will report back on it after I have gone to the class today.
