    Hi
    My name is Christina and I live in Australia and for several years I have loved this site, reading the articles, using the 30 day challenges, finding the exercise videos with Coach Nicole, etc. I would just like to say that I will deeply miss the use of this website, it was the only site that did not cost me anything to use. I loved that I could Blog without any criticism, get things off my chest when I went through some trying times. You will be deeply missed. Good Luck for the Future.

    Thank you is not enough to express what you've done with this SP site. I've spent 14 years here (off and on) and after three attempts--was finally able to lose the weight and keep it off. I reversed my diabetes, got off CPAP and reduced my blood pressure medication. I found myself again and, along the way, a healthy lifestyle that I can sustain. From the bottom of my heart--thank you.

    I am sorry to add to the 'pile'. I am American but live in the UK. I knew OF Sparkpeople.com because I have been coming here pretty much since the site started!! This is incredibly upsetting to find this news today.

    In the announcement it talks about making it more accessible to people - reaching more and more! How is that happening by closing the doors to the rest of the world?? That's SO not cool!! I have referred countless people here.

    I have spent a *huge amount of time* over the many years - reading articles, logging my stats, utilising the video workouts, finding recipes, joining in on challenges! Keeping up with groups and getting support! I just.. can't understand when SO many people are doing THAT and more - that the doors would close on THAT.. to the public.

    I wish you guys would reconsider this path. Although I can appreciate the need for growth and progress!! I can't help wondering what's happened to the original goal of helping people? Or is money now the ONLY Thing that really matters? (I'm direct!)

    On another note - I greatly appreciate what sparkpeople has done for me (1) over nearly 2 decades of devoted membership and visits! and (2) I appreciate what you guys have done for me being so far away from home too! It's been a LONG time that I've been coming here.

    It's going to be incredibly hard to say goodbye. I'd pay to join the new site! but it sounds like that won't even be a possibility due to regional restrictions! I wish you guys well, I really do, but I am incredibly annoyed, upset and devastated. This is a huge blow to the world really!! I see many others in the comments who feel similarly! please, please reconsider!! Paid membership *Fine*!! Omgsh it's SO worth it!! But please don't strip the entirety of it away from those of us outside the US!!! Please!!!
