Goodbye to Spark People.

I find that the complexity of this site has ceased to allow the simple usefulness that used to exist here. Although I continue to check from time to time to see if some of the wonderful simplicity has returned I fear that it never will. That which I miss most (except for friends) is the Food Tracker. A SparkPeople friend (in Scotland) and I (New York) once tracked our food, exercise, and nutrients daily for an entire year here! The Food Tracker is no longer simple (I liked to track from my iPhone and then check the full site for certain nutrients) and I not only do not use it myself but I can no longer recommend it to friends. Sad because in its former life it was the best tracker around.
I used to look around to see what was new and I always found something interesting. Now it is just too fancy.

    Deborah, thank you, thank you, thank you for stepping forward again. I remember your taking a partial leave and things went well for awhile. ATRANSFORMATION was trying to keep things together and then her broken ankle threw her for awhile. I did not want to see this team fall by the wayside and that was why I sent the SparkMail to the leaders.

    Looks like the two of you have things well under control. Again emoticon

    Believe in yourself. A daily affirmation may seem to be a silly idea, but give it a try anyway. Write your own affirmation about your abilities, and repeat it each day before you leave your home. Start with the following, and modify it until it fully expresses your commitments, beliefs, and intents.

    I am unlimited.
    I take responsibility for my life.
    My every action is a conscious choice.
    I can accomplish anything good that I truly set my mind on.
    I keep focus, and persevere.

    Hi Shoopette,
    Yes, I'm still "all fired up" about my new shoes and the great walking I'm doing. Still haven't gotten out my French notes and French audios to get back to my love of French, however. Maybe I'll get out my French songbook to prime my ears for some French listening!
    Hope all is well with you! Thanks for stopping by.
