My weigth tracker

Friday, April 11, 2008

I have been thinking about this for several days... I was wondering if it would be wrong for me to put my starting weight as 256lbs since I didn't lose all of that using SparkPeople. I feel like I have worked really hard and deserve to be able to let people see my "real" progress. I feel like right now it looks like I just started and my starting weight is 187 unless you actually go into my profile and read it. Any comments? I am really torn about this.

    I agree with the others. You do what motivates you! And....it will motivate others in the process to see that you've had so much success!

    I also started at my heaviest weight. Hey... SP or not... it's success... no matter how you look at it. Just make a note of it on your main page. Good work so far!!!

    I didn't join SP until Feb. 2008. By then, I'd already lost 50 pounds. I put my tracker at my starting weight when I began my entire journey. Not just from when I joined SP. You do what will be the best thing for you and the most motivating! emoticon

    Haha do your thing! Hell YEAH put it at 256lbs....you lost it, you show it off! I lost 15lbs before i starting re-sparking (i joined ages ago then never ever used it til about a week ago!) but i still put it up there! No one will judge you...if it spurs you on to see how far you've come, what's so bad about that?! x
