Another Spark People refugee!

Well, in 2018 my old website Calorie Count shut down, so I moved to Spark People. And now it looks like it is time to move again! I'm in my mid-30s and I need to lose a good 40 pounds at minimum. My weight is around 175 right now, down from a high of 260. I've been struggling lately and gained back weight due to problems in my personal life, but I'm ready to get back on track. I enjoy walking, reading, and playing games!

    Hi,Moonbear. I’m a refugee from SP too. We have similar goals! Nice to meet you and all the MFP community.

    Hi and welcome! I'm not a prolific poster. And this is my 2nd round with MFP. But I'm back because I've found when I use it, it works. Best of luck to you!

    I never tried spark people, but MyFitnessPal has helped me lose many times. Unfortunately, I keep gaining it back. This time I've decided to eat more and lose slowly so I can make it a lifestyle change for good. I have an open diary and eat whatever I want as long as it fits in my calorie goal. Feel free to friend me.

    Hello, I am also on SparkPeople, but have heard that they are shutting down and revamping and by the looks of it at this point, I'm not a fan :neutral:

    Me also. Been using it off and on for about 10 years now. Back on for about 2 months. Mad about the direction it's now going in. Good luck!

    I find that MFP has a expanded database of the kind of foods that I eat. Don't have to enter as many manually.
    Glad to be here.

    Another Spark refugee here. I was VERY active over there and it took me awhile to move all my blogs to my website. Surprise! The account I opened over her 12 years ago was still active. So I am still Brooklyn_Born.
