    I notice that it has been awhile since you added any new partnerships with fitness devices. Can I ask if you have, or plan to, contact Jawbone UP in regards to forming a partnership?

    Good to know. Loving my Fitbit One and Aria scale but I'm glad other devices are being added that other people know that there are choices in gadgets to use on Spark.

  I just purchased a BodyMedia LINK. Does anyone know if you can sync/transfer the information FROM the nutrition tracker TO the Bodymedia LINK. I've spent the better part of the day searching both websites for some instructions and can't find anything. I've downloaded APPS for both websites and still can't get the information to transfer over. If someone could point me in the right direction, I would be forever grateful.

    I recently started using Bodymedia Link. A great tool!, but would love to sync the food tracker with Spark also so I do not have to enter the data in 2 places. Any future plans?

  I think it is great too and I purchased the BodyMedia but am unable to sync... I am new to Spark and frustrated - more work is trying to set up then follow a diet. Any suggestions. I cannot find a sync command on either site. Body media or Spark

  If you have a BodyMedia Armband do you still need to pay the $7 a month to sync it with SparkPeople? I really want to get one, but if I am only going to be using the SparkPeople side of it, I don't really want to get stuck paying an extra $7 a month......

  Yay! I've had my Body Media for more than a year now, and I've been a big fan of SparkPeople for....5 years? I didn't really care for the food tracker on Body Media, but you can't beat the calorie burn and sleep data you get from the device. Now I can do all of my tracking in one place! (And it's my favorite!)

Thanks SP for hooking up with Body Media!

Cheers!

    Thankyou for your Welcoming note of 12-28-12. Just read it today, read all my 15 messages since I JUST figured out how to open them up today.
Didn't mean to ignore them.....just didn't know how to read them. I'm new @ this computer business too....Just had it installed 12-19-12. Most
of my 15 messages were from BIGPAWSUP--- who didn't give up on me.
Thankyou for your wonderful site emoticon My dietitian/nutritionist from Henry Ford Hospital/Detroit is the one who gave me your site name and I got on asap. Thanx for all your great ideas, videos, receipes, information, reinforcement, etc. etc. I need it all.

Do I need a special 'mobile' unit/ cell phone to use this device? I just a simple cell phone that does only
telephone calls.

    This is wonderful. I have used Spark for years and have only had my band for 2 months. I am excited.

I do have one question. I was able to get the band synced with my spark page but noticed that I have to click the sync button on the specific day, it is not automatic. Is there a way for the system to either automatically sync nightly or if I click the sync button, it does it for the whole week.

Thanks,
Charlotte

    update: After 2 weeks of trying to get bodymedia customer service to help me when I was home from work on my computer I gave up and returned the device to HSN. It was completely frustraging and I do NOT recommend it to anyone. IF they are so big on advertising on sparkpeople and biggest loser on tv and the web, they should expand their customer service hours to accommodate people who have to work. It was ridiculous. I will never buy one again.


Hurray! I found the best place for me to get the bodymedia device was hsn because they allow 3 payments instead of having to pay it all at once. Mine is charging now. I am a bit unclear on using it. I hope I can use the SP site for food log, it is so bright and colorful, making it fun. I certainly don't have time to enter twice, barely have time to enter once. I can't wait to use it!

I've been trying to manually sync them because I love the calorie counter on SP, but I figured the exercise counter on Body Media was probably more accurate, but I found it darn near impossible to get them to come out "even". This is the coolest thing ever!

This is great! Because I've been trying to sync them manually because I love the calorie counter on SparkPeople (all my data is on it) but I couldn't get the calories in/out synced correctly between the two. I burn 1845 calories a day and tried to input info into SparkPeople. But Sparkpeople asks for how much you burn a week ... lol. Well 12,915 a week, gave me a crazy calorie in total. Cant wait to sync the right way!

    I have to admit that I have never heard of "Body Media" until now. I'll have do a bit of research & find out what it is exactly. However, as much as I'd like to, exercising isn't a real feasible option for me due to the severe OA in both knees. But I do like that it also tracks one's sleep & that would be a tremendous help for me. Thank-you for the information.

5 Easy Ways to Spread the SPARK (& Why You Should)

Thursday, January 17, 2013



We hope that all of you are off to a great start toward reaching your goals this January! Hopefully SparkPeople's trackers, resources, community features and coaching tools have helped you make some progress during these first few weeks of 2013.

As you know, SparkPeople is a FREE website because our mission is to SPARK millions of PEOPLE to reach their goals. We try to keep our costs as low as possible so that we can remain a free service for you and everyone else. We don't spend much on marketing to recruit new members. Instead, most people learn about or join our site because members like you tell them about it! (And we thank you for that!) That's why we ask for your support in "Spreading the Spark" to others. It's a great way to help others improve their lives and it helps keep SparkPeople free so we can help even more people.

January is the time when many people are making health-related goals, so it's also the best time to tell people you know about SparkPeople.

If you have a few minutes to spare in the next few days, here are some very easy ways that you can help Spread the Spark to others.

1. Share the SparkPeople Badge on Facebook, Pinterest and/or Twitter. Just click the link above to easily tell your social media friends that you're reaching your goals with SparkPeople!

2. Follow SparkPeople on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and/or Tumblr. Every time you interact with us (like, reply, comment, retweet or repin something we post) is another chance your friends will find out about SparkPeople!
SparkPeople on Facebook

SparkPeople on Twitter

SparkPeople on Pinterest

SparkPeople on Tumblr

3. Earn 10 SparkPoints for each friend you refer to join SparkPeople. Visit our Tell A Friend page to get a custom URL you can share with anyone. If they join the site from your URL, you get 10 SparkPoints per person!

4. Buy our new DVD at Target. The newly released 'Total Body Sculpting with Coach Nicole' is our highest-rated DVD to date: Nothing but 5 stars on amazon, plus endorsements from top fitness magazines calling it "one of the year's best." We are so excited that Target chose to stock our DVD on their shelves from among hundreds of available DVDs this year! This lets all kinds of new people discover SparkPeople by discovering it at Target! But they'll only keep it in the stores if it sells well, so if you're thinking about buying it, don't hesitate to run to your nearest Target store to purchase it. (Look for it in the sporting goods section, not with the movies.) As a bonus, you'll get 250 SparkPoints for your purchase—but only when you get it at a Target store.

5. Just tell someone! Simply tell someone—anyone—about your goals this year and how you're using SparkPeople to reach them. Call a friend. Send an email. Tell your co-worker. Just spread the word. When you tell people about your goals and how you're doing, research shows that you're more likely to reach them. And when you have people join you, your odds of success are even greater. To make it easy, we have email templates, printable flyers and even printable "business" cards that you can share! Find 'em right here.

Please consider doing what you can to help Spread the Spark today. The more people we can reach, the healthier we can make this world.

Here's to a healthy 2013 for all! SparkCheers!

The reports allow me to see progress and my faults which I can change and modify. This helps me do my best and overcome my fears. Thank you so much for SP.

    I do try to spread the spark but only one person have joined. the problem is largely due to the fact that most people in Nigeria here do not have 24hr access to the internet . . . So I think they do find it difficult to track their fitness and nutrition,which is the secret to weight loss on SP.

2 Great Deals on 1 Great DVD!

Thursday, January 03, 2013


Happy New Year!

On behalf of everyone at SparkPeople, we want to wish you a Happy & Healthy New Year! Whatever your goals, we are here to help.

For those of you who are planning to get fit, tone up and lose weight in 2013, we wanted to make sure you knew about 2 Great Deals happening this month on our new Total Body Sculpting with Coach Nicole DVD. Members can choose one of two deals when purchasing this title--but only for a limited time.

Deal 1: Save Money
Save 39% off MSRP when you purchase Total Body Sculpting at amazon.com. For a limited time, amazon.com has slashed the price of this DVD so you can get in shape for less dough. This sale won't last long, so check it out today!

Deal 2: Earn SparkPoints
When you purchase Total Body Sculpting at an actual Target store (not online), you'll earn 250 SparkPoints. Target stores nationwide are already starting to stock the DVD (look for it in the sporting goods section, not in the movies section), and it should be in every Target by the end of the month. We are thrilled to have been selected as one of a few fitness titles at Target, which is why we are offering this Target store exclusive. Buy your DVD there and you'll earn SparkPoints for your purchase! At our local store, the DVD is just $12.99! Learn more.

We hope you'll take advantage of one of these two great deals while they last.

SparkCheers! Let's make 2013 the best year yet!

The SparkPeople Team

Introducing 2 New SparkCoach Programs for Plateaus & Motivation!

Friday, November 30, 2012



We launched SparkCoach back in August with a single program track: the SparkDiet, and our members have responded in an overwhelmingly positive way to the feature and the video-based coaching program. Thank you for your support!

The last several months, your coaches have been hard at work developing new programs for SparkCoach, based on feedback from members. Today we are happy to announce the addition of TWO new SparkCoach programs!

  1. Plateau Busting: If you haven't seen any weight loss for several weeks despite your hard work, this 4-week program is exactly what you need! Each day, our coaches will deliver proven strategies to help you start dropping pounds again. All the while, your motivation will soar thanks to built-in daily encouragement and helpful visualizations.

  2. Consistency & Motivation: We designed this ongoing program to help you stay motivated to stick with your healthy habits for the long haul, whether you're losing weight or holding steady in maintenance mode. Featuring daily health, fitness, motivation and nutrition challenges from your coaches, these fun and interesting daily goals will help you stay accountable and avoid temptation.


Anyone using SparkCoach can switch to a new program at any time by simply clicking your "SparkCoach Account Settings" button (from your SparkCoach Welcome page) OR by clicking the "See Other Programs" button (near the bottom of your SparkCoach Program page).

You can sign up for a free 1-week trial of any SparkCoach program by visiting www.sparkcoach.com!

We hope that you enjoy these new offerings!

  During my life time . I STARTED OUT AT 140 something & went down to 120 something. My problem is who do I maintain it after I get down there.

    You are definitely on the right track. I love that you continue to add new programs and make adjustments when needed.

I would like to see something for the flip-flop person. I lost weight and have maintained most of that weight loss. Some changes in my life occurred, I gained a small portion of the weight back and now seem to be stuck. After a year of no real changes to my numbers (weight/inches) I feel that I don't fit into any of the program levels offered. I'm not sure where I fit in actually.

I was in maintenance mode for a nearly a year, now gain/lose same pounds mode for a year.
