Rather hard to grasp change.
No more teams, social support.

Can we set two dates Seattle side and Eastside for a gathering before our communication is gone? I donโ€™t have FB, Ig etc so this has been everything. I can barely walk now (autoimmune) but still would like to see a real good bye.

I now am double logging with Fat Secret screen name Sparkkg.

Donโ€™t lose your motivation, if you are reading this it means you have already survived TP/good shortages, covid daily governor announcements, wild fire smoke, masks, riots, murder hornets, no more applets and cotlets, lockdowns, hour cut backs, no dinner movie nights . . . You will also survive SP as we know it fading away.

Now just need to figure out if I am backing up my blogs or pretending I survived a house fire. I donโ€™t even own a computer.

A member on another team posted on the wall that Spark People will be closing down (as a free site, I guess) & going to a format where you have to pay. I'm trying to learn more in order to make decisions and discuss with members on this and other teams. I read a blog on Team Leaders team "Spark People is coming to an end - eek!," but the link she provided to an article goes to "Page not found." So I posted a Team Leaders thread asking if it's true:

I heard that from one member this morning, and read a blog about it, though the article they linked doesn't exist (anymore). I hope we will be advised early from Spark People, so we can help members navigate major changes. A pay-only format will be an option for some, but not all, and I want to support all our members in supporting their well-being.
******************
An hour and a half later (after reading to relax, then exercising) I had a lot more comments on my Team Leader post, with links to the official blog: This Isn't Goodbye, SparkFriends--It's A New Beginning
www.sparkpeople.com/resource
/wellness_
articles.asp?id=2659

This was the comment I left there: What I have loved best on Spark People is teams--encouraging each other, celebrating victories, getting to know other members, asking for help. If that isn't part of the new format--where people can gather in smaller groups around their interests, their spirituality, their challenges (health conditions, organizing, financial)--then the site would be missing its heart and have little to set it apart from others out there. For many of us it's the nurturing we give and receive here--not competition--that has kept us loyal and motivated.

Oh, yeah, we do have stellar jays, but you're not apt to find them deep in the city. You'll find them wherever there are greenbelts. We don't have cardinals but we do have lots of crows. In Seattle (Lake City), we also had chickadees, hummingbirds (Anna's), house finches and western juncos; once in a while a flock of wrens. In Bellingham, because I'm next to wetlands, we have lots of red-wing blackbirds.

When we camped, it was the stellar jays that were brazen. Come right up to the plate.

If you like funny memes, you might check in with Slightly Off the Wall team. Their goal is humor and laughter.

Funny, just as I was finally headed to Seattle--the pandemic hit! And hit then hard!!

So I'm stuck here in Florida. Not sure when I'll ever get to the "mythical" place I love...*sigh* lol

I moderate a page for my city. And I check in for a while. Then get busy and forget to come in for a while. Every once in a while someone new drops by. Weird when in this fairly small city (Tallahassee) I know it's possible to meet whomever might come into this page. But no one has been steady enough to get that far!! At least while I've been a member.

Stay safe and healthy! And I do get a good laugh from your memes and posts. Maybe you could start just a funny or positive memes team or something like that? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿงโ˜บ๏ธ

2019 is our year! ;)

I seem to be the only that actually posts the regular threads. Once in a while, I do see signs that others are dropping in. What's ironic is I no longer live in Seattle, but I feel like I should continue posting. I figure if someone drops in and gets a laugh from one of my posts, that's fine. Eventually, I'll drop it as well.

Hi Nanasue! You are an angel for posting every day. Does anyone come in here lately?

A few teams I moderate have low or random participation or attendance. Can be frustrating or really just not warrant me showing too much attention. Too many more important things to concern myself with. Or better yet, to enjoy. ๐Ÿ˜€

Enjoy your weekend! ๐ŸŒŒ๐ŸŒƒโœจ๐ŸŒ 

2019 is our year! ;)
