This will be my last post here as well. I have joined the FB page but so far am lurking more than commenting, primarily because my main focus is to do well on the LAST 5% Challenge on Spark which opened on Saturday and runs until mid August. The leaders worked hard to put this last hurrah together on the present Spark so I figure I can put the effort in for them and for myself. For anyone that wants to continue Blogging, I just googled Bloggers and see there are several websites. I have located a couple of friends on "Blogger" and suspect more will blog there. I've not been much of a blogger so I'm thinking I won't be changing that!!! BUT never say never. I'm doing a lot of soul searching to see which route I want to take in my ever present attempt to lose and keep weight off. I actually think I might need a whole new mindset and think more along the lines of positivity, looking after my health and taking care of my mental well being . The keeping a stiff upper lip and harsh attitude I have toward myself about not accomplishing my weight loss goals sure hasn't worked for me thus far. So long Chit Chat Lounge 2021 and maybe see you on FB.

P.S. Irene If you are checking here from time to time I will keep up with the Weight Loss thread that you have so graciously set up for June. I'll check to see if you set up a thread for July.

Having a hiccup in posting but that is okay, I can comment just fine. Got this yesterday and felt a little sad that I will not be getting a 500 day one.

Verna: I'm really enjoying the FB page. I don't feel like I have to sit down and "compose" something ... I can just post a quick status update or read, like, and comment and I'm done. That was always the challenge for me - to make the time to sit down and respond to longer posts.

How wonderful and active we are on Facebook and that is so great to see. Just wanted to stop by and see if there were many posting here still and I see it is mostly on Facebook now.

See you there.

I thought I'd pull the link to the FB group up to the top, so it's not buried in messages. I'm so excited to see so many coming over to FB. I'm glad we will be staying in touch!

Good Morning All -

After a couple of days of both groups - the SP general one and ours. I let the big SP general one go. It was too big and too much on my feed, I ended up seeing them and couldn't follow the threads as well.

I think ours is the perfect size and we all know each of us, which is great! That was what I was hoping for in a group. I mean sure, it can grow, but I don't think it will get as out of control and the one that has over 400 people on it. emoticon

Mom was back to her regular mood yesterday so that was good. We shall see about today.
Have a great one all.

I've sent my request to the Facebook team page. It's under Bonnie Carlton (if anyone can approve me!)

Sorry, I haven't been much of a poster. I've been trying to find my way since I turned 50 in October.

I've recently signed up for Noom and it's been helpful! I'm finally back on track after more than a decade!

Good Morning -

You are right Verna, all the familiar faces are there. That is so great! If you would like Verna, I have a paper tracker sheet (PDF) that I could send you through messenger if you would like a paper one. It is an old WW one when they tracked protien, fruit, milk, etc.

Catch you on FB my friends.

Looks like most of us are already on the FB Group which will fill the bill for chatting at least!! I still haven't found a Nutrition Tracker but to be fair haven't even looked today as we got off to kind of a late stop and we had company then we had more company which is ok, The couple that came to see us, we have visited pretty much all along, infrequently but still we visited and then there were 3 guys who stopped in because they were hauling cattle to our pasture. Didn't stay long just kind of in and out.

I jointed the Weight Loss Thread here in June 1. First time in months and so far so good. We had pizza tonight and I made a kale slaw to go with it which wasn't exactly a low cal dinner but it SURE was good!! It drizzled on and off today but tomorrow the forecast is for more rain so I hope we get a good soaking then hopefully it will warm up.

That sure is a nice pic you posted on FB Dot and here you said you weren't sure how to navigate onto FB. Looks to me you are a quick study!!

Sounds like you are going to be in for a busy summer Sara. Hopefully it won't be too bad. After all it is summer and you will want to have the energy to enjoy the after hours.

Sara; Joining the FB group is easy, easy, easy. Just go to FB and in the search bar in the upper left hand corner type Canadian 50+ Women's Group. Voila - there we are. You'll need to click on the 'join group' (I think that's what it's called) and you'll get approved right away.

Wow seems like I missed alot these past few days. SP shutting down and FB getting a new group of very fine ladies!! Yes I'll gladly be part of FB group.

Been so busy at work that by the time I get home I'm so wore out, I have no energy to even click on SP. We have had 4 move ins this past 2 weeks so getting the rooms ready is a major job. With things opening up seniors are now feeling safe to find a new home and come into our place. I think it will be busy for the summer as each week we have a new resident check in.

Will try and find the FB group and join. Sara-Lynn Stevenson is who I am - so please accept me when I join. Can't wait to see what exciting things we can accomplish on FB. Will have to figure out tracking and stuff, but I do have a Fitbit, so it keeps close tabs on what I do. I actually use it more than SP for tracking.

Hope everyone joins FB, see you there.

Irene: I think I'm going to like the FB group better than SP. I enjoy being able to comment on or like a post in real time and not have to try to answer different points in a larger post. And I've already visited the FB page way more often than I did SP just because it's so easy. I think I'm going to be around a lot more.

Okay I have just sent off a request to join the group. I thought it would be one big massive FB group - not just our team. Iím so happy itís just us. As usual, I probably wonít be chatting that much, but itís good to know that I havenít lost you.

Good morning. Megan I made it to Lethbridge yesterday and will be touring around the town this morning and then going to the university this afternoon before starting the long drive back to Edmonton.

I like the Facebook group. It will give us a place to chat and share. For my daily tracking which I know helps me. I have set myself back up in MyFitnessPlan. Same user name majork29. I'm actually liking the food tracking there more then the one here on SP.

Good Morning My Friends - I have already stopped by our Facebook group and it is looking pretty familiar with the usual faces. I think it will be okay. I think we shall be okay. I have been saving notes and putting my plans in place for me and I am sure it will be just fine continuing on. I have a sparkfriend who totally surprised me. If anyone was going to be totally upset with the loss of spark I thought it would be her. Especially since she had hundreds of blog pages for over 10 years.

She wasn't emoticon She said she was grateful for spark when she started but now she was ready to let go.

Made me think - if she can let go after tracking and I mean daily tracking of everything for 12+ years then I can too.

Irene - huge emoticon I know it was a huge shock when I read it on Sunday, now I am a bit less freaked out.

See you on the facebook side.

Another hot and humid day here in Petrolia. Looks like it might rain at some point in time though. I made a phone call to an elderly friend this afternoon. It helped to make the day a good one for both of us. I was beginning to feel really isolate and bored. Tomorrow I get to drive a friend to her eye appointment so it will get me out of the house for a while.

I have also joined the facebook group so we can still keep in touch after Spark closes down.

Kira, I hope your trip goes smoothly. I like my Garmin too. It has its flaws as it's old, but it gets me around when I need it. I don't have a smartphone, so it's either paper maps or the Garmin for me. I also have my friends tell me directions and that helps out too.

I'm glad to hear some folks who don't usually do FB or groups in FB are going to join up on the team. Kira mentioned in the team on FB there is a video chat option that we can look at down the road and she's used it with another group. Even with changes, there will be positives we can use on FB that we can't use here.

I'm home this morning as I have a late evening family to meet with at 6 PM today. I'm hoping it'll work out for the father as he works randomly and we thought this may help to catch up with him. I'm a family support worker. Tomorrow I head to the city with the folks for their follow-up appointment with the eye specialist - they each had one eye done for cataract surgery. Then on Sunday we go back in overnight and they have the other eye done.

Well I better get some things done around here and get ready for work. Take care all!

Just when I start to get my act together again Spark closes its doors to all but USA residents---isn't that always the way?? I'm not really interested in staying with any other part of Spark but this thread. I need to find a Nutrition Tracker that I can use on some other site. I've looked at my Fitness Pal but can't seem to figure it out. Mother slow child here!!!

Good morning ladies, it's a rainy morning today in Edmonton. I slept in a bit from my usual and will be going to get Megan up in a few so we can get on our way by 9am. We plan to stop in Calgary at my friends for tea and knowing her some food then on to Lethbridge. I'm going to pull my GPS out of my van and take it with us. Megan tells me that we both have google maps on our phone but I prefer to use my Garmin.

The Facebook group looks great. It won't be the same at all but change can be okay. I have also been playing around with MyFitnessPlan for food tracking. So far it is okay, different but okay. If anyone else is on it I am still Majork29....

Good Morning All -

Well, we have all been pretty busy I see between SparkPeople and Facebook. I had one lady that chatted on messenger for ages but as it went along I saw that she really didn't know who I was at all, so I didn't friend her. No sense really but I recognized the ladies from here and am very happy to have you as a friend there.

I never was much of a group person on facebook but this group and if the DivaGlow lady makes one will definitely be on my to-do stop on there. I am getting more okay with it. Change is change and there is not much to do about it. Americans in general seem to be pulling in more and more, I even see it with my sister and her family. Mind you, I don't think they are the only ones in the world pulling in. I noticed that ClaireInParis just disappeared from Spark with no word at all. Lots seem to be doing that.

Well, off to get mom's groceries so I shall be on my way.
Have a great day!

Patricia, just like here how often you post will have no bearing on whether or not you are a member. emoticon Heck I didn't post much here either but I did read the messages.

I just checked, so I believe that all who have requested to join tonight have been accepted.

I just requested permission to join the group - my name is Patricia Smith Perkins. I don't post much, but I hope that doesn't disqualify me from joining. Just kidding ...

I don't post much on this thread but I always read. I hope that's okay and that I can continue on the Facebook group page.

Here is the new Facebook page - Canadian 50+ Women's Group (SP Alumni)

If we decide to allow in that are outside of Canada, we can change the group name. There is a photo of a lady doing yoga in the sunset. I wanted to keep the cover photo generic.

Feel free to join up now. It is set up that members can approve those asking to join if you are already a friend with the person. I also set up two guides - one for nutrition and one for fitness. It allows us to post articles and such on these topics, under the Guides and pull it up easier than flipping through numerous posts. Since this is a new FB feature I'm not sure if everyone can post articles or if only administrators can do this - we'll see. :)

No worries on joining immediately - sounds like the majority of us will remain here in SP until they close on August 17th. :)

MAJORK29 and I have been in contact, so I will get the Facebook group up and running tonight. The two of us will have equal administration for the group - which like here will be totally self-monitored and ran by us members. emoticon

As I mentioned Dot, if you want to participate in the FB group without being on FB, you can set up a private account and participate only in the group. No one needs to know you outside of the group and that keeps your presence on FB to a minimum.

My friend Cheri (from here) and I were talking on the phone yesterday about this. She mentioned many folks she knows will be losing money because they paid for an entire year or bought a lifetime membership for Premium. It's difficult (if not impossible) to do so internationally, I hope those in the USA who have purchased membership fight to have the money returned. It's theft in my eyes if people are out the money because SP shuts down.

I have ONE question. For Facebook group - do we want to keep it exclusively to women 50+ from Canada, or do we want to open it up to women 50+ from anywhere?

I ask because I have a friend from the USA who is very active on SP and she's really upset at losing her supports. I was thinking others in this group may have similarities with their friends on SP outside of Canada. Let me know what you think on that.

Alicia, it will be different not to be here, that's for sure! I may not have posted much in the group here, but I did read all the posts. It was always nice to come in and read updates.

Good Afternoon -

Like you all, I am clearing out my stuff and saving most blogs to a journal file on my external hardrive. Those of you who have put your facebook name I will send out a friend hello. It won't be the same as here on the chit chat but at least we can keep in touch.

I, too, plan on team posting until the end as long as you guys are here.
Have a great day!


Hugs and Sparkles - Alicia

If the team is fine with this, why don't Majork29 and I set up the Facebook, then come back with the link? We can also assist anyone who isn't on Facebook to set up a private account so they can participate.

MAJORK29, what do you think?

Let us know. :)

Good morning ladies,

I spent some time yesterday copying my blogs from this site to my personal journal. Wow it was really neat to read some of the old ones. Yes I got a little sidetracked. Today I will try and finish. I have started looking at using either myfitnesspal or the Fitbit site to track my calories, not sure yet this week I am trying myfitnesspal and next week I will try Fitbit.

I'm all for joining a Facebook group. I look after one now with over 500 moms of special needs teens. They are easy to set up and you don't have to be friends with anyone.

Odd that I couldn't edit my post and you could DotZ. Ah well.

I run a couple of public groups, one private family group and one page for seniors on Facebook. One recommendation is if it goes forward, to have 2 moderators and place it as Private (not Secret, as that's too hard to find). If people want I'd be open to setting this up with someone else. Once groups take off they really do well, when it's groups like this - as it's very little work for moderators. My largest group is almost 5000 people and they self-moderate - it's a rental, real estate, job combination group.

Anyhow let me know if people want to go forward with this and know, you don't have to be friends on FB to join these FB groups - so if you aren't on FB, you can set up a private page that isn't accessible to anyone and participate in the group.

I heard the SP news and am not happy, in fact I'm pissed!!! I will sure miss all you gals. I'm on FaceBook as well under Verna Knight. Desiree I looked for you on FB, are you the one who refers to NAIT because that's the only one that I can see that might relate to you but the page is virtually empty. If anyone else is on FB, maybe we could set up a group and stay in touch that way. To keep in touch through e mail would be a tedious chore I'm afraid. What does everyone think about FaceBook Group for the purpose of keeping in touch? Any other ideas out there?
