I know everyone is blogging about the site closure but I wanted to add my 2 cents. It's sad but I get it. It makes good business sense. Change is HARD for some. I signed up for Spark360 today. It feels like Sparkepeople but I know I will miss the interaction with friends and blogging. I decided to copy and save all my blog posts so I can go back and read them again. One thing that struck me as I was saving them was all the wonderful support from thoughtful friends. Sparkpeople is a great community and I have made so many friends. People I would have never connected with outside of the internet.
I want to Thank Chris and the entire team at Sparkpeople for making this site FREE for so many years. Watching others meet personal goals has been so uplifting! I am not at goal yet but hope to be before the site closes down for good.
There are quite a few FB groups forming from teams I am a member of. SP Alumni, SP Family - Health, wellness and motivation.
In case you missed the official notification: SparkPeople's note about their closing: https://www.sparkpeople.com/re
If you would like to keep in touch, send me a sparkmail with your email, FB., etc.
Probably one of the things that makes me sad is the friends I have made on here that are no longer active. I will always wonder what happened to them, their families, etc.
