New and Improved Challenge Central Teams

Tuesday, June 01, 2010



Hi everyone-

Today we made some updates to our Challenge Central feature, making it easier and more fun for members to find and participate in SparkPeople challenges. Challenges are a great way to get support and motivation to reach new healthy goals, no matter where you are in your weight-loss journey. For launch, we created six official SparkPeople challenges that members can join anytime:

  • Stress Busting Challenge
  • Healthy Family Makeover Challenge
  • Healthy Cooking Challenge
  • Better Sleep Challenge
  • 28-Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge
  • 10-Minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge


When you join a challenge, you'll receive four weekly emails (there is an option to turn those off as well, if you prefer) that contain action steps and tips for the week. By completing all of the steps within four weeks, you'll also earn a special SparkTrophy to display on your SparkPage!

We have more official challenges coming soon, so be sure to check back to the Challenge Central section of the site (you'll find a link to it from the Community/SparkTeams tab at the top of the site) often for more fun and motivating challenges to help you reach your goals! If you have ideas for new challenges you'd like to see, please share them here.

We hope you will enjoy these new and improved SparkPeople Challenges!

    I LOVE THESE CHALLENGES.

They really helped me. Is there any to ones for pushups? I found the one hundred push up website....i'll be doing that, but I thought I'd ask SP too!

New version of Blackberry Tracker available

Tuesday, May 11, 2010



Hi everyone

I wanted to let you know that a new version of our Blackberry Diet & Fitness tracker is available! This new version includes a number of bug fixes, plus the ability to:
- Manually add foods
- Change your goals
- See reports

To get the new version you can go to Appworld, or also to sparkpeople.com/blackberry on your phone and clicking the link to the application.

Finally, if you have any type of "smartphone" (Blackberry, iPhone, Android, other) you can visit sparkpeople.com/mobile to find a solution for your phone!

    I just started using Spark, and I'd love to see a BlackBerry Torch app to go with this site! It would certainly make tracking a lot easier, as I'm always connected w/ my Torch like some lifeline. It sustains me!

I'd like to see a "mashup" of the BB Tracker and the features of the new Mobile site.

The Tracker is a great supplement to my BB/USB/PC Diabetes Log Book. The Tracker was my introduction to SP. Thanks for a great app.

New "Recipes" tab on Add Food page

Thursday, April 22, 2010



Hi everyone

On your Add a Food/food tracker popup you will now see a 4th tab for "recipes." If you have any shared, favorite, or reviewed recipes you can now easily add them from this tab. In addition there's a search box to find recipes.

We hope this helps more people find many of the great recipes at SparkRecipes, and also makes it even easier to use SparkRecipes with our food tracker.

  Great idea, thanks. Next, please make us able to search among our favorites. I have so many favorites, it takes a long time to find something. Like, a soup may start with "Soup:" or "Campbell's" or "Progresso" or "Lipton's" or whatever, depending on how the original person input it for my importing it. Please let us do a search on keywords in our Favorites.

Special 'Mind Over Body' Newsletter Series Starts May 1

Monday, April 19, 2010



Do you ever struggle to stick with your weight-loss plan? Battle with emotional eating? Lose your motivation and have no idea how to get it back? Wonder how to stop "dieting" and start a healthier lifestyle like people keep talking about? You're not alone!

That's why Coach Dean created a hidden gem for SparkPeople.com: the Mind Over Body plan. This 10-step plan is designed to give you the tools you need to identify, work through, and overcome the most common emotional and behavioral issues that you're likely to face when you set out to change your lifestyle.

Next month, we're launching a special 10-day email series called "Mind Over Body." Subscribers to our "Best of SparkPeople" email newsletter will receive one Mind Over Body step each day, beginning Saturday, May 1. (Yes, it's free!)

If you don't currently subscribe to the "Best of SparkPeople" newsletter but would like to receive these 10 emails, change your email settings here. (Note: You must subscribe to "Best of SparkPeople" in order to receive these special issues. When making subscription changes, be sure to click the "Save & Submit" button at the bottom of the page.)

We hope you enjoy learning these proven strategies for a sustained lifestyle change. Don't forget to subscribe before May 1 to get the entire series!
