GlennM's Journal, 26 July 2014

Doing OK - I may try to go for a long walk today if it does not rain. The site now is NOT user friendly. Before everyone you were buddies with - their posts were all together on your home page. It kept a sense of community. Because that is LOST now - all of my dozens of buddies have left. Many were on here daily for years and then the changes came and no one could find anyone so everyone - just left. I may go to other diet sites soon. Some things needed changing - but not that. I may go to the mall too - and walk around there - or to the lake swimming. I hope everyone is well. My noisy neighbors are leaving today (they are above me) with all the loud noise they make, thank God.

Hi Glenn, I understand what you mean. I was one of your friends on here a couple of years ago as veghead- a vacation, seizures, forgotten password and no response from the fs website when I tried to retrieve my password for veghead means I had to create a new account and lost all my friends. I didn't remember my friends names (the seizures cause me to forget)then recently came across an email about you making a journal entry. I use my phone to get on here so dropdowns don't work. There are plenty of other diet sites to help people lose weight such as sparkpeople or myfitnesspal. I know sparkpeople has recipes, nutrition articles and you can even create your own blog if you want. Even though this was written almost two weeks ago I hope you were able to get your walk in.

Hi Glen, it is Sazy here. I am sorry you lost your regular friends because of changes to the site. Although I was your buddy I did not comment regularly. I still have a list of buddies which that stay on profile page. Have you tried looking there? I am planning leaving the site too but not to go to any other. Fat secret is the very best in my view but I just needed a break from it and now find that even though FS does not take priority in my life anymore, I still can't forget all of you. You are right, our buddies are like friends and as such bring a sense of comfort knowing someone out there is interested in us. Glad you are getting rid of noisy neighbours and hope you get a more considerate replacement. Very much love Sazy. Xx

Glen, I just checked your comments from yesterday and I agree totally. I remember being on site chatting back and forward to half a dozen buddies and we all replied and exchanged quips throughout the day. There was a real bond between us. I remember I found it was getting too much and practically didn't do anything but sit at my computer for hours chit chatting and all ours buddies linked to each other's daily events. I used to visualise all of you going about your daily business, it WAS great. I suppose time moves on and for some of us changes, I e getting busier in our lives prevent us from making contact so regularly frequently. Then after a while FS becomes less of a priority. I am aware you know this but I agree. I really hope you enjoy your swim in the lake. Xxxx
