I NEARLY QUIT SPARK PEOPLE

Saturday, October 24, 2020

The following is response I wrote to Lynda, our Canadian Friend, who puts a bright spot in the lives of so many Sparkers everyday.
I have a question for you, Lynda. Actually it is for Spark People also. Do you think that after 12 1/2 years on Spark People, losing 50 lbs., maintaining, spinning in every day for many years, that I constantly want to read the same articles daily? Some of the weight loss articles were written before I ever joined, such as 2004. I eagerly look for up-to-date articles that pertain to me.
How refreshing it is to read your blogs that pertain to the every day life of a senior who battles weight along with her husband, animals, grown offspring and the Pandemic. I am so happy to see you back. And don't bother to change your writings. WE ALL LOVE THEM!
If the troublemaker would put his/her energy into useful ways, they might complain about the ads that gyrate all over and literally cause vision problems for many. We don't need them. Do we really have to give in to every single person who wears his feelings on his sleeve?
Yes, I was seriously considering dropping SP over this incident. Fortunately, Lynda is a bright and educated person who decided to be bigger than the opposition.

    My philosophy for spark is to take the good and leave the bad.
    I was gone for a couple of years and came back for the Fall Challenge. It is helping me to have some accountability, and as you point out, there are some great people around here that we can engage with.
    Hope you decide to stick around!

    Lynda sounds like a remarkable person. There are several on SP I enjoy blogs as they write interesting about themselves.

    I have been wondering what happened to Lynda. I also read her blogs everyday and can relate to a lot of them. I would also like to see some new articles on Spark People. I have been on here since the early 2000's and find very few new and inspiring articles. There is so much about healthy living and health in general that could be written about.

    Awwww Carol---- Whatta girl! YU even blogged about the incident--- or perhaps incidents-- I dunno!
    Thank yu--
    YU know, I never think that our blogs go all over the world--that perhaps someone in --say--China--- didn't realize that, the blog was meant to be funny-- nor did they know that I am "sorta:" Chinese---"= and Himself, the 92 yr old--IS CHINESE---
    Anyway--I shall try to remember all of that---
    Crazy times we live in -----and--I missed yu all --a lot---
    Hugs my dear friend-Lynda
