    I have been very upset. No matter what I do I have not gotten any daily email for over 3 weeks. The cookies sound like a great idea if I could get the email! I get notifications of my new mail messages and if there is a comment on my Spark page but nothing else. Not only that there does not seem to be anyone to contact to help me with my problem. I keep getting referred to an article. I know the site is free and I feel awful for complaining but I really miss the emails.

New images to add to SparkPages and profile

Monday, November 12, 2007


We created a few images that say things like "Lost 10 Pounds at SparkPeople" and "Maintaining at SparkPeople" that you can use in our community. You can add these to your main SparkPage, just edit your page, click one of the 3 photo spots to the left, and say you want to use our "success" gallery.

You can also add them as your profile picture in the same way, by editing your picture then choosing one of our images.

Hope you like them!
