    I have the same issue with SP and diligently counting calories for every bit that goes in my mouth. When I successfully lost all that weight during the year and a half after I first joined, I too, became obsessed with it. I found it difficult to enjoy going to dinner each week with my friends because the number of items on the menu that I could eat and still stick to my plan was very limited. I have to say it worked like a charm, but by the end of two years I could no longer stick to it. I got so tired of the endless logging and feeling deprived.

    I haven't tried any other plans recently. I was on WW many, many years ago, and didn't stick with that nearly as long as with SP. I haven't tried Noom. I have to admit to being cheap and not willing to pay for a program that I'm assuming works much like SP.

    I have taken myself in hand recently, and have started being more cognizant of what and how much I'm eating. During the pandemic, I definitely used food for comfort. I'm just going try being more mindful and see if it will at least help a little bit. I have lots of recipes saved on here, so will likely be logging in more often and will also touch bases with you and other Spark friends because I have missed you all.

    Good luck to you, too! If you do find something else that looks good, please do share.

    Hi again! Glad to hear you had such a nice Easter. Like you, I'm now fully vaccinated. I had my best friend over last weekend for tea and scones on the patio. It's so nice to be able to spend time with her again.

    I miss you as well. I'm going to try to check in here a little more often. I really have mixed feelings about SP these days.I miss my Spark Friends, but being on the site makes me feel guilty about not doing much constructive about my weight issues. I just can't bring myself to get back into all the food tracking, etc. My Fitbit does update my activities even when I don't log on, but that's automatic.

    I'm going to try to log on a little more frequently, just to catch up with people like you. Take care and enjoy your spring!

    Hi Linda! As you know I haven't been here in ages. I came on today to look up a recipe in my recipe box, and thought I'd check in with you to see how you're doing. Hope all is well with you and you are having a nice Easter.
