New Video: How to Use Your Nutrition Tracker

Friday, July 25, 2008


SparkPeople offers so many amazing tools, resources and community features that it can be overwhelming to know how to begin—especially if you're new to the site. We created this new "tutorial" video to show our members how to use their personalized Nutrition Trackers. You'll get step-by-step directions to: add foods, track calories (and other nutrients to track), use your meal plans, and more.

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_articles.asp?id=1154

This is a great video to share with people who you tell about the site. If you have a YouTube account, you can add this video to your favorites, comment on it, and even subscribe to the SparkPeople Channel. All of these actions help Spread the Spark so even more people can discover SparkPeople.com! We hope you enjoy this video!

    I really appreciate the Video's you have made for us. I have seen quite a number and they have helped me not only do the exercises right but see if it is one I can do.
I haven't checked out the Nutrition ones yet and I think I really should as I would probably learn some short cuts to what I have been doing.
Thanks for all you do for us. emoticon

    Thank You so much for your undaunting waver to continue to make Spark people a place where people want to come and want to lose weight as I have found it's not just weight that is in there way it is life's up and downs as well and here at Calling all Goonies we focus on all of these points to see people make it. I thank you for such a wonderful sight and for everything the spark People staff do to continue to make this a safe place for people to come and overcome there fears about failing or giving up the site provides so many things but most of all it provides a home and home is where the heart is and they have found that and I have found that here.

Always,

Two SparkPage Photo Gallery Enhancements - Add up to 50 photos and re-order

Friday, July 25, 2008


We're happy to announce the launch of two often-requested enhancements to the SparkPage photo gallery.

1) You can now add up to 50 photos to your gallery, up from 25.

2) You can now also change the order of your photos. Go to Edit SparkPage, the click Edit My Photo Gallery. You can then put your mouse on any photo to move it around the page, and click Save at the bottom left when you are finished.

We hope these changes make SparkPages an even more helpful way to both showcase your success and share more about yourself with other members. Also, keep in mind that if you'd like you can share your SparkPage with friends and family outside of SparkPeople. Just send them the web address my.sparkpeople.com/USERNAME, where you replace USERNAME with your SparkPeople username.

Thanks!

And since we are talking about Sparkpages and members outside Spark. Will you ever be including a feature to set the sparkpages not only to "see by friends only" but to "see by spark only" as well? There are lots of privacy issues and I would really like to be open within Spark without having to make myself available to the whole google world. Implementation could follow facebook guidelines.

  Chris,
You are wonderful and I love this site. Thank you for starting it and everything you do. I only started towards the end of February, but I have already make some great changes - thanks to everyone here and the program. I am only down 19 pounds but it's all the small steps that make us reach our goals. I started in a depressed state and have climbed so high. I am floating now. Thanks for everything you put into SP. My team "We CAN DO IT" loves the site and we all say thank you so much.

    Wonderful broadcast! I enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about our generous benefactor, Chris Downie, and to hear his voice and personality.

Chris, thank you. I wish you much success always, you are an outstanding example of how much good can be done for others when we give generously without wondering, "What's in it for me?
