I'm another one who came here because of the Great 4th of July Sneak Attack Price Hike of 2007. I did bop back and forth until my membership ran out in Jan. of the next year, but people were getting kind of unpleasant over there and things kept breaking down, so I didn't miss it when I finally left. Then they closed down the public forum, and sometime recently they even closed off the free tools, so now I don't go over there at all and the cookies have even expired from my browser.

I do still use their desktop software. I had considered possibly re-joining when my financial situation gets better, but I can't fathom ever paying $85 a year. They just don't give you anything for your money.

Calorie King is running 60% off sale. If you join before Feb 28th, it's only $57 for a year. I'm not surprized they have to discount their membership. Who has $85 to spare ? The monthly membership is now $12 per month. that's $144 a year ! I know that's less than Weight Watchers, but still... SP does everything they do and it's free.

I was a member here too for about a year before the "wave" of refugees, but as soon as this team was created, that was it for me. I think my account is still active at CK since I had prepaid to get the $19 per year price, but haven't been back to even visit CK for at least 18 months. Happy here. emoticon

Don't think of it as this time, think of it as lifetime.

Has to be around the same time as Karen....mid-2007? However I see I've been a member since January 2006! So I think if I remember right, I signed up here while I was still at CK, because someone told me the food diary here was just as good, plus free....but I didn't ever do anything at the site until my membership at CK ran out.

I can't believe it's $85 a year now. YIKES! (sure glad I bought the software!)

hmmm... well, according to my spark page, I've been a member here since july 2007. I came with the first wave of refugees. LOL !!! however, I still had time left on my CK account. I was back and fourth until my CK membership ran out. So, I figure I've been officially here for 2.5 years and it's been great !!! Shoot, I'm a team leader now, what does that say ??? ;)

Let's see.... about 1.5 years now. No regrets.

I was using both sites for a while. I think I let my CK account expire about 1 1/2-2 years ago.

That was the day I created this group here on Sparks people.

How long ago did you leave CK?
Me, about 2 years.

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And together we'll change the world. All my very best, Jack Layton.
