Georgia, hope your safe trip home is going well.

Dee, I don't think it's bad to be glad to walk out of work. Work is challenging, not enough pay and not always pleasant and yet you work so hard at it for your family. I hope you have a great afternoon and days off.

Me, just keeping busy with Yuuki (the pup) and the other animals of course. With Jenna working and the girls different activities it keeps me very busy.
Still tracking daily and weighing weekly. The weight is coming off ever so drip drop slowly, but at least it's in the right direction.

Take care, Cathy

Is it because Sparks is closing and maybe bothering you.

I am wishing I could help you.

We are on our last night of vacation.
I looked in the mirror and died of how flabby I am.

Friday - day 1 of new beginnings.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Georgia, prayers for your Mum. Safe trip home.

Cathy, I don’t have a Fitbit but I’m trying to figure out the MFP app also. The nutrition tracker I like that you can do decimals which I couldn’t do on Spark from my phone so liking that.

me, just trying to get up to speed on moving to another site.

You are right Cathy they are not the same.

Struggling today as my mum had another fall
and thankfully my son helped her out.

We will start the return journey Sunday and be there by Saturday

Thanks for the add as friends on MFP.

Georgia, I hope your walk was wonderful.

Dee, I hope you are doing well today.

It is so hot and humid here again. ugh. I have to spend a lot of time outside with the puppy, Yuuki and and the other dogs which I don't mind...if the weather isn't so hot. So I find the little bit of shade and hope it will melt all the fat off! If only it were that easy!

Checking out MFP and Fitbit apps. They just aren't the same, but in all fairness, I have to give it a chance.

Take care ladies, Cathy

Ιhave sent you both a friend request on My Fitness Pal.

It is very hot and today we have reached the final point of our break before the return journey begins.

Stay well dear friends.
On my return we shall help each other on this journey.

Hi Ladies,

I am starting MyFitnessPal again. I am not fond of it, but will give it a chance. I am also on Fitbit. You can find me by my username on MyFitnessPal which is: CathyG750 and on Fitbit I think it is Cathy G. I believe you have to use the period after G on Fitbit.
Well as always there is something going on.

Jenna had a bad case of vertigo and it lasted a week and a half. It is much better, but she still feels it. We took her to the E.R. and they gave her meds which very slowly help, but you are not supposed to stay on them for long as they have nasty side effects including increased risk of dementia. I am so glad she is okay, but vertigo is unpredictable and can happen any time. So I will be talking to her primary care physician regarding driving which Jenna really wants to learn.

The weather here is nicer with a bit of a breeze. I am so grateful.

Dee, are there teams on MyFitnessPal? I joined years ago, but never really used it. I am fine with staying in touch on FB messenger as well.

Georgia, sounds like the trip is a lot of fun. You have a great attitude though I am sure your husbands moods are hard. Hope the rest of the trip is great.

Gotta get moving. Puppy is doing well but needs to go out frequently. And Jenna finally gets to go to music (violin/guitar/ukelele) and then the girls have their Teen Group and service tonight.

Hugs, Cathy

Morning, hope your day is going well!

Georgia, glad you got to see some crocs and they were also at a distance. I would be a nervous wreck while looking for them.

Cathy, hope all is well.

me, I signed up for MyFitnessPal yesterday as one of the teams I am on is considering moving there. Don’t know too much yet as it was late last night when I did so still need to do some checking around there.

My ID is: Dee797D2 and I’m using the pic I have here on Spark now as my original one I could not find.

DS and I have eye appointments this morning and then this afternoon I have a dental cleaning. All those appointments that got cancelled or moved last year are coming due now.

Hi Dee
We went on a fishing charter and Barry had a ball.
I got a bit sunburned.

The 12 kg Spanish Mackerel fed us and a few of our neighbours in the holiday park.

Off on a boat cruise for some croc spotting

Have a nice day and I hope the funk vanishes soon

Cathy, Sorry didn’t mean to confuse you. I meant using FB Messenger rather then FB itself to keep in touch. Or email would work for me as well.

Georgia, so glad dh is finally relaxing, hope you are too. Safe travels.

me, in a bit of a funk since all this Spark news. Otherwise doing okay.

Hi Ladies,

Dee, I think I'm confused. I thought you guys were talking about FB messenger. And I agree that messaging on FB isn't private at all. What messenger app are you talking about?

I hope you both are having/had a good day.

Hi Cathy snd Georgia, I also don’t want to lose contact with either of you. Will will find a way to stay in touch. Messenger works for me as FB is not all that private. I’m not going to SparkAmerica as someone said it’s corporate sponsors so how much data are they looking to get from us.

Georgia, hope your vacation is going well.

Cathy, do hope Jenna feels better with the meds. 🤞🙏

You are right Cathy there is no other platform like this.
We can carry on in a messenger group chat room.
I do it now with other Sparkies.

Hi Georgia,
I don't want to lose contact with you and others I know that aren't in the U S. I will miss the format of SP and the personal touch like blogs and our Spark Pages and pictures, etc.

I know I haven't been on nearly enough in the past year or so as life has been so challenging and heartbreaking. I had just recommitted to being on more and actively pursuing my weight loss through SP. Now that isn't possible...here.

Without the support and encouragement of people like you and Dee and a few others, it will be really hard.

I have joined the new platform and will roll with it as they build more into it. But it is more of a business model for companies than individuals. There isn't another site like this one. Just sad.

Dee, I hope you are doing well. We have been having some really hot humid days here and there are always challenges to go through. How is your hand?

Jenna woke up yesterday very dizzy with vertigo. My husband took her to the E. R. and they diagnosed her with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. She is still dizzy even with meds. We go to her primary care Dr. tomorrow to see what she recommends. It's scary as this is rare in teens...she just turned 17. Always something.

Anyway, I hope you both have a good day/night.

Hugs, Cathy

Here is the article:

This Isn't Goodbye, SparkFriends--It's A New Beginning
By: SparkPeople

SparkPeople began with hope. Hope that a community of like-minded, strong and driven people could motivate one another toward personal growth and overall happiness. Hope for a healthier way of life away from frustrating fad diets and extreme exercise routines. Since 2001, SparkPeople has stayed true to its original mission, offering hope, guidance and inspiration to more than 25 million people through its free goal-setting and weight-loss platform. Watching SparkPeople's members achieve amazing goals, manifest and live the lives they deserve, and cheer on people around the world has been nothing short of incredible. Before anything else is said, we want to thank you for inviting us to be a part of your journey and for the privilege of earning your support and enthusiasm for the brand. We feel confident in saying that no other brand has a community or members that live as passionately as ours!

Now, it's time for something new. On August 17, 2021, we will be closing down SparkPeople along with its features and mobile apps to make way for a new platform, whose foundation is similarly rooted in the values that made SparkPeople so successful for two decades. As many of you know, SparkPeople's business model has always been free and was driven by advertiser support, a model that became difficult to maintain in recent years. With many larger technology companies emerging in the health and fitness space, we struggled to compete for the same advertising dollars that would keep the site online and alive since it costs many millions of dollars per year to run SparkPeople. In seeking solutions, we discovered that, while our mission remained the same, our approach needed an upgrade.

SparkFriends, we'd like to introduce you to SparkAmerica, a new platform we hope you will join to help spread the spark to even more people! SparkAmerica is a national movement and fitness challenge, where you can compete with cities across the nation, work toward your personal growth and even win prizes! The ad-free site will also include a nutrition and fitness tracker, challenges, articles and recipes, along with many other features we are working to develop (including a new community we hope will be as robust as the one you helped create with SparkPeople!). While many of these features are still in the very early stages and are not available yet, we're confident that you'll find the motivation you need to continue on your health journey.

SparkAmerica is part of our new business model, in which we work with companies and organizations to help keep their employees healthy. Not only does this business model allow us to expand our health offerings to more people, but it also does a much better job of paying the bills and will likely allow us to hire more people over time to keep improving our tech platform. We’re very excited that we can open up our website and app for this business, keeping it free to all individuals and organizations in the United States to keep helping many people.

One feature we can't wait to share with you is SparkCoach, a revolutionary program developed by our team of health and behavior change experts that helps members stay accountable to all their nutrition, fitness, mental health and professional goals. SparkCoach can either be complementary to food tracking or possibly even replace food tracking for many people. At this time, due to various rules and regulations, SparkAmerica is only available to people based in the United States. You can check out more about SparkAmerica, by clicking here.�

As we begin this exciting transition, we know you will have as many questions about your accounts as you do feelings about the shutdown, so we wanted to cover a few points:

At the bottom of your nutrition and fitness trackers page, you'll find a new feature that will allow you to download daily nutrition summaries, as well as fitness and weights tracked.
Unfortunately, other items including recipes and blogs cannot be saved. If you want to hold on to either for future reference or use, we recommend using the "Print to PDF" option to print at home.
Premium members will no longer be charged starting today, June 14, 2021. As a thank you for your loyalty, though, you will still have access to premium content through August 17!
Lastly, we recognize that SparkPeople's passionate community is one of its most treasured assets, and we want to ensure that you continue to support and uplift each other even after SparkPeople goes offline. In an effort to continue to foster this community, we will be creating a "SparkPeople Alumni" Facebook group! You can click on this link to join your fellow SparkPeople friends: Click here! We will be approaching some SparkPeople members who embody the brand and what it means to be a positive leader to help lead this group, and we hope it becomes a space for you to share your wins, find inspiration on your off days and celebrate all that it means to be living healthy! This group will be a "bridge" as we work to build community features on SparkAmerica. If you have any more questions, we encourage you to reach out to us at support@sparkpeople.com.

While SparkPeople will no longer be online, we are confident that you, our first SparkFriends, will continue to work for the betterment of yourselves and those around you, spreading hope and inspiring others every step of the way, just as you've done for the last 20 years! We hope to see each and every one of you working toward your goals over at SparkAmerica! This isn't goodbye, but a simple see you later and thank you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Hello My Friends,

I hope you are well and having a great day.

I am saddened and shocked to hear that SparkPeople is closing down in August!
There will be a new platform that I don't believe will be online and it will be quite different.
This is the article I read: This Isn't Goodbye, SparkFriends--It's A New Beginning
I couldn't find a link, but maybe you can find it through Sparks search engine for articles.
I don't believe there will be any more teams.
The new business model as they are calling it is SparkAmerica and only for people in the states. :(
It will have competitions between states etc.
I don't want to lose contact with you so maybe we can figure out a way to communicate on a different platform?
If there is anything you want to save or copy from Spark, then do it soon or you won't be able to access it.
Spark has struggled because of bigger sites "taking" the ad revenue making it difficult for Spark in the last several years.
Let me know what you think.

Take care, Cathy

Georgia, so glad your Mum’s bed arrived. Sounds like a busy day to get ready to go. How fun to meet up with your ds on your trip. Safe travels to you all.

Cathy, hope all is well.

me, hanging in there. Hand is coming along but not fast enough for my supervisor. He keeps asking when I can get back to working for him. Instead of doing the temp table. Plus, so many coworkers have either left or are planning on leaving. So I’m having a lot of mixed emotions right now. 🙁

Hi Dee
Finally less than 24 hours to go. Mums bed arrived yesterday and I was running errands all morning for her.
Today I will go back to do her shopping.
Then home to do the final packing.

I am doing housework this morning and then off to drive my son to the airport. He is going to one of the towns I am going to drive through next week. We are having sinner up there.

How is you hand Dee? Has the pain settled now you are back at work?

I will still check in on sparks and also Facebook

Have a great day.


Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Dee thank you. I have had a stressful work week and now I am my days off and vacation time. Time to renew the spirit.

I have 2 days of things to do before we leave.

I hope it is not too hot for you. The weather here is overcast and rainy clearing to a fine day.

Have a fabulous day.

Georgia, I had to smile at your wanting to unpack and then repack your suitcase. Good idea to wait on shot til you get back. Have heard varying degrees of people experiencing discomfort after having them.

Me, all five of us have had both shots. Only dd experienced a bad headache and body aches after first shot. The rest of us just some arm soreness where shot was given. None of us had any reactions after second shot.

Dee some tasks are very boring. Sorry you have to do this.

Have you had your Covid shot?

I am getting mine on my return from vacation. I don't need to be dealing with possible reactions before a trip.

It is cold now but the days get to just above cold. Lovely in the sun though.

I am 3/4 packed but think I will repack and change outfits packed. lol

Morning All, hope you enjoy your day!

Cathy, good to see you posting. Congrats on Jenna getting a job and the new puppy to train. How exciting! OY on the hot water! We went through that in February with that freak snow/ice storm that knocked out power for a while.

Georgia, so glad your trip is coming up soon. I’m sure you are beyond excited about it.

Me, doing okay. Still doing temperature checks at work. A bit bored sitting all day but I’m getting paid and doing a service for others. I wear my mask as do most of my coworkers, as some are fully vaccinated, some have had first shot, and others are not vaccinated and don’t intend to be. Plus, have no idea if customers who are not wearing them are vaccinated, not allowed to ask them; but management can ask an employee who is not wearing a mask to show proof of being vaccinated. This is the policy where I work, not sure how other businesses in area are doing things.

Cathy so nice to hear from you.

I do not mind sharing my lucky win.
You give, you get.

How nice Jenna has a job.

So sorry for the hot water system.

I bet the new dog is cute .

Just a few more days to go and then out of here for some time in the country.

Be strong and look forward not back.

Georgia, your trip up and down the river with your mum and cousins sounds amazing and relaxing. I hope you are able to enjoy many more excursions like it. How kind of you to share what you won with others.

Dee, I don't know how you handle the heat in Texas. I have a hard time with it gets to 70 F and above! It's the humidity that is so hard on me and the bright sun. I hope you had a wonderful time for your daughter's birthday. How is your hand doing and PT going?

I have been crazy busy as always with wrapping up school for the girls. Jenna got a job, but doesn't drive yet so that is going to be challenging along with all the activities they and we have. Somehow we will manage. Our water heater broke and since it has to be a special size we had to wait a week for it to arrive. So we've had no hot water all week. For the past 2 days we've had no water as my husband works on installing the thing. The new one doesn't hook up exactly the same way. Thankfully Randy is good at these types of things...but it takes time. Then he got called into work so another delay. I am really hoping that he'll finish installing today (Sunday) as I just want a hot shower and to wash clothes and dishes.

We also added a new Great Pyrenees puppy that we are training for therapy dog work. She is adorable, sweet and smart. She is already learning some very basic commands. And we are still working with Ezra who is 2 now, but still so unfocused and energetic. Not good therapy dog material at this point, but I refuse to give up. Ezra loves Randy so they are doing training together...good for both of them!

I am doing my best to move forward and not think negative or waiting for the other shoe to drop type of thinking. It's not easy, but It is necessary.

Hope both of you are having a wonderful day/evening.

Hugs, Cathy

Georgia, where you live sounds lovely. The sea to the Outback, AWESOME! Do hope the bed for your Mum isn't delayed too long.

me, we are in the 80's during mid-day and about 50's to 60's in the morning, soon heading into summer here and much warmer temps for sure.

Dee we have been able to travel since about November. Only travelling within state as other states are still getting outbreaks.

Safer to be here but we are a huge state with many options from outback to sea.

Going north into the warmer weather and away from the start of winter.

10 days and counting and getting ready to be gone now. Still have so much to do for mum. The bed we ordered has been delayed. Frustrating.

It is cold at night and lovely during the day.

Hope all is well in your world.

me, doing okay. Wednesday is my Friday, then have two days off plus I get off an hour earlier because they are cutting hours. See hand surgeon on Thursday, so will see if I still have restrictions or not. I believe I will but he has final say to a certain extent.

Dee the legal time for vacation is 4 weeks per year regardless of how long you have worked for them - 1 year = 4 weeks paid annual leave.

We are very lucky indeed.

Today mum and i and my 3 cousins are doing a morning cruise up and down the river.

I won some tourist dollars from a campaign the local government had so am taking advantage of spending them for all of us to have a lovely morning.

Have an amazing day.

Georgia, hope your day is going well. I totally agree with you on the night shift. Four weeks off? Wow! That’s Awesome!

me, doing okay. We get 2 weeks off after being with a company for X number of years. That gets added to the longer you are with that company. My dh had 4 weeks off years ago, but he had been with that company for 20 years at that point. When you change jobs/companies you start over with vacation time depending on how the company has it set up.

I am sorry you are not getting enough time to do this and to mentally rest. How is the hand holding up?

Good morning Dee
How is your hand? I hope it has been getting used to the work and you are not in to much pain.

I have had a busy few days. Tuesday mum fell over and she said she was fine. Yesterday we spent the whole day at the hospital with her getting a partial cast on her hand and within 2 weeks a proper cast. It was a difficult day as now she has issues with pulling her own underwear up. My cousin is staying with her for 2 days and then I shall have to see what to do on the weekend . I am working Saturday.

I have spoken to her regarding respite for a few weeks. As you know elderly can be fussy and finicky.

I am physically exhausted and mentally drained.

But we do what we do.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Oh Dee what we have to do to keep work.

I shall pray for you to cope.

I have woken up with a bad case of hives again. Ugh I am so frustrated from it.

When I come home from mums shopping I shall relax.

Warm day ahead but the nights are nice and cold.

Have a good day.

Georgia, hope your day is going well.

Cathy, hope you and yours are ok.

me, off today. Told by personnel need to work 40 hours in order to keep my insurance. So gave me off today then I work 5 days then off 2 together which not many others have. Their days off are split now. But he is going to move me to the temperature table, employees come in a separate door and must go through a temperature check at start of shift. Figures that would be less stress on my hand/wrist. So we will see how that works out.

Dee maybe you can suggest that for them to consider.

Work was hectic last night and I am tired today. Only half a day as I have decided to have a half day today. Just need it.

I need a good sleep in without the rush of getting up and rushing....

Have a good day

When I returned to work I returned on 4 hours a day for 5 days and then it went to 5 a day for 5 days and then it went to 6, 7, and then full time. I like your idea too - a day off would help.

He has to understand you are still not 100%

Hives still bugging me but doing my best to relax.

Off to an early start for a very long day.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Georgia, that is annoying sorry your assistant had to listen to that. I don’t understand why some people think that it’s okay to do and say things like that.

me, I told work I was taking today off. My hand and arm were throbbing yesterday. Think it’s too much activity at once. Did call personnel after work (he was at lunch when I clocked out) asked if it were possible for me to work two days then have one off, at least for the next couple of weeks. Said he would try and work with me and we would talk more on Thursday. Voice said one thing but could tell he wasn’t happy. Don’t think I can handle 40 hours right now. Since I started on Monday was expecting me to work all 5 days (mon - fri) then have Saturday off then not off again til Tuesday or Wednesday.

I bet you are sore after your first day. I shall pray it gets better for you.
Sleep well and awaken rested Dee.

We had a really bad customer ring up with lewd comments. So annoyed my assistant had to endure that.

Otherwise a good and busy day.

Georgia, Sorry to read the hives are back.

me, tired, achy, legs and feet hurt as do shoulders and back. Did zoning (straightening) filing hanging etc etc., of infants and women’s plus returns and answering phone while getting customers into fitting rooms and then spraying everything down after each one was used.

Fingers crossed for a good first day Dee. Thinking of you.

Family gathering was lovely.
I was supposed to join mum in a few hours for a church luncheon but have decided against it as I have broken out in hives again.

So frustrating and I know it is a combination of stress and foods.

Have a good day ladies.

It took to lunch time to feel better but I do now. Mot 100% but close.

I have just made Greek custard pie for Sundays dessert. I am having 10 for lunch that day.

I am about to rest and read a bit before tackling dinner.

Hope you are getting answers for your calls.

Have a good day.

Georgia, hope you got some rest.

me, doing okay. Up early today as my brain will not shut off. Surgeon decided to release me back to work with a 10 lb., lifting restriction for left hand. So my return to work is May 3rd.....Yep Monday. So I’ve been scurrying around trying to get forms filled out and signed by surgeon and need to call personnel today to find out what else needs to be done.

I’m not a happy camper but not much I can do about it. 🙁

Georgia, glad you may have found the cause of the hives. Taking this antihistamines for a few more days is probably a good idea. Winter, not yet i hope.

me, i'm doing okay .... i guess. Go to see hand surgeon on Wednesday the 28th, so i'm a bit anxious as to what he is going to say. otherwise all is well here. supposed to get some rain today into tonight with heavy downpours at times. some days we are in the 50 to 80 degree range and other days we are in the 60 to near 90 degree range here.

Dee I think it was the dust from when I hung mum's new curtains, I can't think of any foods that I have eaten. It seems to have settled - I will continue the anti histamines for a few more days t6o be safe.

Yes this time of year is a delight with the weather. Cool nights and pleasant days.
I have a feeling winter might come early this year.....but I could be wrong.

How are you going?

Hope all is improving with the hand.

Have a fabulous day.

Yes Dee it will be exciting to go and learn to cook French. The hives have settled with antihistamines. I just wish I could isolate what caused them.

Back to work today and the routine which is vital.

Overcast and rains due here.
The nights are lovely and cool and i slept so well for a change.

Have a good day Dee and Cathy
