The Final Blog?

Tuesday, June 08, 2021

I've got myself set up at Spark360 and so far I'm less than impressed. Even after the trackers are added it looks to me as if it will be way too 'touchy-feely' for my taste. Guess I should be able to find online trackers to my liking and like-minded social groups to keep me on track. This may even work out as a positive since I spend way too much time on SparkPeople anyway. I want to get down to a point where interfacing with electronics takes less than twenty minutes daily and maybe I'll finally be able to read some of the thousand or so books I've got lying around and even squeeze in more and different exercises.

It was my intention to buy Fit Day PC so that all my data would be on my own hard drive and not dependent on a website. Another case of me dawdling too long as now it's no longer for sale for whatever reason. That's what really slays me... my super-accurate food database will be unplugged in August. Poof! Sounds just like oh so many of those unwanted events in our lives. My old pappy used to tell me.. "Cheer up Son, things could be worse", so I cheered up. Sure enough, they got worse.

So... on that maudlin note, I'll wish all my fellow Sparkers a happy and successful future no matter where you end up. Thanks for over fifteen years of help and support. My email is

Keep calm and carry on! Justin Vernon got credit for first saying it and Kansas put it to music:

"Our lives feel like these epochs, but really, we are dust in the wind."

    I tried Spark360 also. Not impressed. I will keep an eye on it because hopefully it is a work in progress. Thank you for all your support of us and the teams.

    I'm using Fatsecret and so far, I find the Community to be closest to here and the nutritional tracker user friendly, although Mynetdairy's tracker is the best thus far, but Community is lacking.
    I'm not exactly sure what you are looking for, but both are imperative for my success so Fatsecret is the closest, but I may use both, who knows🤷🏼‍♀️. If you decide to check out either please look me up... same user name catwncat and Sparkle and Shine group on Fatsecret!
    Best of health to you as you continue your healthy journey!!!

    I will truly miss all of your wonderful pics! You have always made me smile while looking at the way you capture each flower and yes, even bugs in the best light and frame.

    Perhaps some of us will be able to meet up once again on another platform. It is going to be hard to match all of the friendships that have evolved through the years on SP.

    Thank you for sharing the world seen through your eyes and your lens.

    Wishing you a long, healthy, and most of all, happy life.

    I agree ,this is a blow ,i will miss all sparkfriends.
    I signed up while living in the US, now i am in Spain so i guess i am out of luck as well.

    I hope you find a place where you have all the time to read and only spend a few minutes on line.
    I am in the same boat ,too much time on electronics.😱

    It has been a pleasure getting to know everyone here on Spark over many years, meeting many new friends
    I will really miss it all.
    Best of luck.

    I am hoping it all works out ok, but trying to find another website that does what I want and need it to do, is stressing me out a little. I wasn't real impressed with the new site either.

    I did find out that they will have the nutrition tracker up and running on the new site on the 15th, so that's a plus I guess.
    I did ask if there was any way to import all of the food I have manually entered to the new tracker. I am waiting for a response to that.
    Here is a link to that thread if you are interested.

    It has been a pleasure getting to know everyone here on SP over the last 12 years. I will really miss all the friendships and support.

    Wishing you all the best!
