Sparkpeople is ending - so here I am!

Good day to you. I weighed 293 Jan 20, 2021 -- today I am down to 241. I've been setting a goal to lose 5lbs per month. And so far that's working. When I signed in today I up it to 1.5 lbs weekly. I will achieve that. I'm in my 60's and would love to have friends. I want to get down to 160. I have a long ways to go. ;)

    You been having such success. I was starting to be consistent with Sparkpeople then I saw that they are shutting down. So here I am too.

    Wow! You are doing great! If you liked Spark People and did well on it, you’ll like MFP and do well on it. Welcome to all 3!

    What is Spark people? 🤷🏻‍♀️ And what is MFP?

    SparkPeople was a fitness and nutrition tracker program, similar to My Fitness Pal. They have been running for 20 years and all of a sudden are shutting down.
    It was the most inspiring and motivating one out there, and their knowledge base and information was second to none.

    MFP is My Fitness Pal.

    I am switching over from SP as well. I find this one harder to figure out. I hope I can figure it out. Are there any other sites out there that are user friendly? I will really miss the social aspects of SparkPeople. Good luck to everyone in their journey to healthy lives.

    good morning. I am also swapping to here as Sparks is closing. My SP name is Sunshine582. I think they are trying to see if they can come over here to do the BLC not sure.

    I'm switching from SP over here, as well. Was very disappointed that they are re-vamping their site. I was on here ages ago, but found SP and switched. Guess I'm switching back!

    I've come here from Spark People as well. I'm sad to see it go but am looking forward to giving My Fitness Pal a try!

    I am here too because of SP. I am hoping to be able to find the same support here as on SP.

    I'm on sp too. Mfp is a little more complicated I think but I'll adapt.

    Same, I was a very long-timer on SP... used it since 2004 or so IIRC. Well, here's good wishes for all of us SP exiles, cheers!

    I was on SP for over a decade under various accounts. Most recently as NanLThompson.

    Time to sort this account out and dust it off. I'm happy to accept friend requests from other former SP members.

    I too am on SP and I'm so sad that it is closing. I joined back in 2009 and made some incredible friends there. Hopefully, I will see some of them over here while making new friends also.

    Hi. Looks like there are a lot of us ex-Sparkies here. Glad that we can continue our journies together.
