Anyone used to use Sparkpeople? Friend me!

I just switched from SparkPeople due to myfitnesspal's superior mobile app (really SP? get it together already!).

I was sad to leave the good community I belonged to there... but a barcode reader that actually works is sooo worth it, amirite?

So help me feel like I belong again! Friend me! (is that how it works here?)

BTW, I'm a 30ish female. I try to eat Paleo as much as possible, but it ends up being part-time at best.

    To add friends (I use the Web version, so App might be a bit different):

    1. Click on the name below the person's profile pic.
    2. Click on the person's name again on the pop-up window.
    3. Press "Skip" if you get a download message.
    4. Click the "Add As Friend" button on the person's profile page.

    Hope this helps! 😃

    I am checking out My Fitness Pal. Previously was on SparkPeople. I had account here years ago but consistently used Spark. Change can be good, right???

    I'm from SP, also. It's a long journey, so I need to keep up the obsession and community.

    I've been a sparker since 2012. I'm hoping to meet more sparkers here as I slowly transition to this site. I'm thinking this one just might work for me and am looking to make new friends.

    Hi! I joined SP in 2010. Got down to my goal weight, but have struggled a bit trying to maintain. Had just recently found the 5% Challenge teams, which was the extra motivation I needed. I was MondayLins on SP.

    I'm not a "challenge" sort of person, but there are lots of challenges to join here: https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/categories/challenges

    Also, you might want to check out the MFP Groups section. There are challenges there as well: https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/groups

    Hope this helps! :)

    Just came over from sparkpeople because they are closing their site to make room for their new site, I checked out their new site and was like "Good grief!" . I don't need to answer a bazillion questions about how I'm feeling before every meal just to get to the food diary. A place for me to just jot a note for myself would be enough. So here I am, and so far so good. Would be happy to friend anyone! I'm 54 years old, doing the old fashioned calories in, calories, out, but real food ( no artificial anything), not processed, carbs from fruits, veggies, and whole milk dairy, but very little from breads, rice, pasta, etc. I do have a tsp of sugar in my coffee.
