One last post to say good-bye and then I am gone. I'll stay gone for as long as it takes to get my Spark back. Being gone might be permanent, but I don't know.

I need to get back to basics, and, as you know, SparkPeople has a lot of extras (including noxious ads that permeate everything).

When it came to the extras, first I dipped my big toe in. Then I jumped in with both feet.

Now I just feel like I'm drowning.*

So I am going to rescue myself any way I can. And that means leaving Spark behind and getting back to basic tracking using a different site.

Aloha, my friends. Aloha.

* Special Note to members of the Hogwarts Team Challenge: I am sorry I let the team down. But in truth, that whole team thing was the straw that broke the camel's back. I felt I was just holding my own, learning how to navigate the challenges, when out of the blue a massive overhaul was introduced. It was too much for me. I couldn't go with the flow anymore. I felt drowned in the waves of change. I'm sorry.

    I so hope you check back on your blog. I have not checked in lately for similar reasons-back to basics. Yes, I love spark points, but this is really about tracking my food, activity and hydration. I am no good at challenges-unless they are of my own design and personal to my journey-I throw myself one now and again. Any way, I hope you get your spark back.
    ps- couldn't agree more about these incessant ads...
    Best to you spark friend,

    I am so sad but I understand your decision. I recently dropped out of a challenge when it was apparent that it was just too much for me right now. Take care and I really hope you come back one day. emoticon

    Sorry to see you go!!

    Chrome has an ad blocker that's simple and free - just in case you decide to return. And I hope you do.

    Best of everything to you!!
