Moving from Sparkpeople

    Another spark person here.

    Has anyone checked out the new spark america after spark people closed down?
    Does anyone know if more will be added for the individual user? It seems for now anyway the individual user can only track and read articles. No community so far that I can see. It also looks like eventually the individual WILL have to join a team whether it be a city or workplace. I'm not clear on that. ???

    Would appreciate any input anyone has on this.

    I would be willing to give spark america another try if there was more options for the individual.

    Hello, and good day to everyone. I came over from SparkPeople too. So many things I've learned and enjoyed there. On a learning curve here, so far so good!

    I was on Sparkpeople for 15 years on and off and it was great! I was very sad to hear it was going away, but it has turned out well for me. I discovered I needed a change. I joined MyFitnessPal several years ago just to try it out, but when I found out about SP, I moved over here and have lost 6 pounds! The change has been good for me! Hope you all like it here and have much success!

    Another former Spark member here. I actually started logging on MFP over a year ago since found it easier than Spark, but haven't used other features until now.
