    Hello😊 I was on Sparkpeople for years. Glad to have you over here. I have found that I really like all of the extras with tracking nutritional content.

    I am coming from SparkPeople too. Getting settled in with the differences. It is nice to get to know some of the other SP on MFP.

    Hi, I'm also coming over from SparkPeople after years of being on there and leading teams. I will miss it so much. I hope that between this site and Fitbit I can find what works for me. I am working hard to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle to be active and young at heart. I love reading my Bible as my faith is very important to me as well as my family. My attitude is to Love God and Love others. Be kind always and put a smile on people's faces and make a difference in their lives. I have several animals - dogs, cats and chickens. They are life to me and so therapeutic! My dogs help me to stay active especially our Great Pyrenees pup, Yuuki. It is so important to do what you love activity wise because then it is just a natural thing and doesn't seem like work. I hope to meet others with similar interests and goals.

    I too have moved from spark and find mfp to be similar for me. Glad to see that many have also moved here too. I had a couple of blogs that I had followed on sparks and hope that they will join us too. Sometimes change is good even if it has its growing pains.

    I'm also from SP. My friends on there were mostly inactive, so I hope to make friends here. Feel free to add me.

    It's been fourteen years on SparkPeople for me, also. Now that I've managed to get most of the information (profile, blogs/journal and recipes) saved, I can concentrate on learning a new social network and getting healthier. I'm most grateful to the 5% challenge teams that made the move, which ultimately will be made up a a number of teams competing for our great fitness minutes and building of a number of healthy Living The Good Life (LTGL) habits (like staying hydrated, quality sleep, fiber, tracking, or decluttering, etc). These fitness minutes and healthy habits have yielded points that get our teams around the world . . . just another added level of form, function, and fun! Looking forward to discovering if I can find some good faith-based groups, as well. My best to all the great newbies who have made the jump to try to learn a new network. We can do this! -- EJOY-EVELYN

    Hi all, I just signed up from SparkPeople as well. I was there for 14 years, so I definitely got used to it. Don't be surprised if I add some of you!
