I saw the news.. this may be my last blog...

Saturday, June 12, 2021

It is sad to hear that SparkPeople is changing... I have made a lot of friends here.. There are those who are no longer around, that I miss sometimes.. I always hope like me with my being around then disappearing then coming back... they might come I can find out how they are, what they are up to and all that stuff.

I will miss the forums and all that... maybe it's time to seek out another site... anyone have any suggestions?

Lately, things have been kind of lack luster. I did get more exercise in this week. I haven't given up. I'm now fully vaccinated, but I still plan to wear a mask in public for probably quite sometime.

I'm just kind of in shock at the announcement.

I guess that is all I have for now.

    I am migrating over to My Fitness Pal. Once I have it set up, I will Spark Mail you my email addy and username so you can friend me, if you decide to go there. They have teams/groups, nutrition/fitness/weight trackers, and ways to make goals for yourself, so I'm looking forward to starting there. No point-earning though.

    I have joined fat secret and find it is the easiest site for me. The one thing they do not have that i will definitely miss is the exercise videos, but there is always you tube for that. You can track your exercise though.

    I loved Spark and being here for 12 years on a daily basis, but I am ready to let go of all of it. I feel I can move forward with ease. I shared my email address on a recent blog so those who wanted to keep in touch know how to reach me.

    emoticon It's been a huge shock for so many of us - I've been on an emotional rollercoaster all week. It hits really hard to lose so many friends at once.

    and like you, I wonder about the people I haven't seen in a long time..will they come back in September to an error page and not be able to save their info..makes me sad

    I signed up at both and - there are good things and bad things about each of them -
    i have trouble finding things on fatsecret, I haven't found a way to look up friends

    myfitnesspal is a little better for finding things but not great about how to stay in touch with people, there's no way to 'follow' someone's blog (or I haven't found it yet)

    I think I tend to like MFP better at this point - but a couple of my friends have gone to fatsecret so I'll probably may both

    fatsecret has a group of former sparkers called Sparkle and Shine - I haven't spent enough time there to know if there are other groups of sparkers (but there probably is)

    myfitness pal has about a dozen groups that are all former sparkers and more every day if you want the list o teams that I know of, i'd be happy to message you here on SP

    best wishes on whatever you decide -- take care!
