I made the switch, and I will tell you I am very hesitant about it because I really worry about over eating with it. But I"m wiling to give it a shot. From what I hear, it is very similar ot what MyFitnessPal does

There was an update to the blog that I saw today saying that "soon" they will be allowing for all existing and new members to switch back and forth as an option and that they'll announce it when it's available.

Start weight: 240 lbs
Goal weight: 155 lbs (reached March 7, 2014)

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.

Get checked!

I don't know your answers, but I thought I read that ALL NEW MEMBERS would automatically be set up with the NEW system, which doesn't match what you say below. My understanding is that current members can make a choice, but if they move to the new system, there's no going back. Unless they've changed it since the original blog came out announcing it earlier this week ...

I have been teetering on the edge in regards to my opinion regarding the new trackers. I originally left tracking on MyFitnessPal for two reasons: 1 tracking on here is easier when it comes to generic entries like fruits, veggies, eggs, and other things. The second reason was the fact that I could afford to eat more junk because my allowance would rise based on my Fitbit activity. Due to this, I decided to average out my calorie burn every 2 weeks and use that average to determine my calorie goal (losing 2 pounds per week).

I am curious as to how the FitBit integration works with the new feature. I know on MFP it will give the difference between Fitbit estimated calorie burn and Mfp's estimation as your exercise calories. How does it work with Spark? Will it match up with the Fitbit nutrition tracker (that shows how many calories you need to maintain a specific deficit each day).

What are your opinions? Like I said, I'm on the fence about it. I'm not sure what I feel about a fluctuating range, but I also know that if I have a really big burn, I need to fuel my body properly.

I am very glad that they are going to make this optional to turn off and on for all members in the near future, so I may try it out then, but for now, I'm not sure.

Though my main hesitation is that I already calculate activity into my plan, and I generally work out at night after dinner.
