Hello. I am new. Just joined Sunday. Still learning how to navigate myself around the site. I love the food tracking and activity tracking.

My name is Nancy, my handle is PAYNENA. I am 51 years old. I started my journey in April 2021 at 343 pounds. Iwas miserable. I stumbled across a youtube video of Dr. Sten Ekberg that changed the course of my life. Thru OMAD, KETO, FASTING and fellowship at sparkpeople I have lost 32 pounds. Woo-hoo Praise Praise Happy Dance. Now that sparkpeople is ending I needed somewhere to land. A Spark friend suggested fatsecret. I'm so glad they did. This is a plan/lifestyle that I can do for the rest of my life.

Hi Nancy
Trev (Tcaano) I have just signed up as well. I too am having trouble with the site but I don't think it is any harder than when I joined SP 9 Years ago.

Looking up food seems to be harder.

Yes to your last quotes

Well, good luck to both of us

Have a good day

Hi Nancy - also converted from SP! Love this site too! Like you, I need to figure it out a bit. I do like the food tracker though. And my dietician has access to my account so she can track my food, macros, exercise, etc. That is an added bonus! Hope to see you around - Heather

Way to go Paynena! I do keto/fasting too!

Waving from the Sparkpeople train! I am so sad it is going away Sad I did sign up for SparkAmerica. I don't hate it, but no food tracker yet. I am on day 32 of The Beck Diet Solution book, and how the website is feels like it could for sure mesh with the book. So far what I've tracked has been pretty easy (I like having the option of on my computer or phone) and I like the feedback already! Have a great day!

When the past calls, let it go to voicemail. It has nothing new to say.

This site is the closest to sp that I've seen so far. We'll soon find our way around. Looking forward to continuing this journey with you all.

Hello Nancy, I am also coming over from SP. I was on SP for 10 years but had become less active on the site. I was just starting to get back on track when I saw that things were coming to a close. So, here I am!
