Wed, 25 Apr 2018 15:26:19 EST Daily Spark Challenges I LOVE these tools and have been using them frequently. Something has changed, however. In the actual challenges I set up for myself, I am now NOT seeing "What constitutes a ..." when I log in to each daily challenge. <BR> <BR> Am I doing something wrong? Specifically, I'm noticing it in the Daily Goal Spark Challenge, but it might also be missing in my other two daily challenges. I will check that and reply to this post if so. <BR> <BR> Thanks for your help! Wed, 25 Apr 2018 11:56:43 EST Macronutrients not matching Calories Shown All my entries have macronutrients listed. Yet when I look at the totals at the bottom of the log, the total calories shown doesn't match up with the calories/gram of macro nutrients. For example: today shows 1871 calories. 185 grams of carbs, 46 grams of fat, and 87 grams of protein. 185 x 4 = 740 calories. 46 x 9 = 414 calories. 87 x 4 = 348. 740 + 414 + 348 = 1502. Not 1871. <BR> What am I missing here? <BR> Thanks. Tue, 24 Apr 2018 20:59:54 EST Does Ticker weigh partial pounds? last week I weighed in at 155.4, this week at 154.5.

I have been copying and using lots of Spark recipes but now you allow a BIG add to come ion between the ingredients and the instructions. There is no way to get rid of it and it takes too much ink and paper to be forced to copy it to get the full recipe. Why is this allowed. It is a salmon recipe, we don't eat enuff fish so i would like to copy it. This is no help to Sparkers trying to copy recipes. Sun, 8 Apr 2018 11:44:51 EST Digital Scale How do I sync my scale?

Does anyone else suddenly have this problem? Fri, 16 Mar 2018 09:37:51 EST Download or print my food log? I recently started working with a dietician and told her I'd track my foods and goals in SparkPeople. She needs a "food log" each week. <BR> <BR> I see where you can download the daily nutrition report, but that only shows calories/fat/protein/carbs consumed each day, not the foods themselves. Is there a way I can download or print a report that has the foods included by day and meal? Or, can I give her read-only access or something? Thanks in advance!

I feel it would help me to see how many fitness minutes I got in for each year. <BR> <BR> Thanks for your help. Sat, 6 Jan 2018 21:41:21 EST Cannot search for foods Hello - I just signed up for this site but am unable to utilize the primary function! I went into my Nutrition Trackers and there is not a TextBox showing up for me to type anything into on that page. Is it perhaps related to the overwhelming amount of ads on the page? I've tried multiple browsers on multiple computers - results null. Fri, 5 Jan 2018 23:56:40 EST Can I not change my weight loss goal from my phone The app won’t allow me to update my weight goal. I get an error that tells me to try the website. So I logged in to the website but it automatically goes to SparkPeople Mobile in which I can’t find an edit goal option on. Booting up my barely used laptop seems like a pain just to do a quick edit of my weight goal. There must be a way to do it on my phone. Fri, 5 Jan 2018 22:03:58 EST Bar Code Scan I have just re-committed to the Spark Life. I have download the app. I see the nutrition tracker has a bar code scan feature. I cant seem to get it to work. Any suggestions? I am using an iphone 6. Fri, 5 Jan 2018 17:37:15 EST Get my Apple Watch workout data onto SparkPeople Is there any way to get my workout data from the Apple Watch to sync with Sparkpeople? Every other fitness tracker seems to be able to do this but not this new expensive hunk of junk. I wanted a TV for Christmas ... but that's neither here nor there :) <BR> <BR> Does anyone know if there's a simple one or two step process to sync all my Apple Health data with Sparkpeople? Thank you. Fri, 5 Jan 2018 17:21:58 EST Callenges I have been a sparkpeople member for a while but just entered food and then stopped, off and on. I decided this year, I was going to get serious and use sparkpeople to its full potential. I have a LOT of questions and some were answered by the videos but not most. First I am going to start with the challenges section. <BR> I thought the best way to answer my questions would be to do "The 21 day new member challenge", so every day I could learn more about all the different aspects of sparkpe...

I recently received an apple watch and attached that but see that I should not have done that since I noticed my activity minutes accumulating at a faster rate than normal. <BR> <BR> I went through and deleted the apple activity minutes from the last few days but do not see a way to remove apple from my devices and just leave the fitbit. <BR> <BR> Does that make sense? <em>198</em> Wed, 3 Jan 2018 15:03:06 EST Has the friend feed option been renamed? When I was on Spark a couple of years ago, I was able to go to my "friend feed" and see what my friends were up to. I can find MY feed, but not my friends. <BR> <BR> According to one search result, it should be under the "community" tab, but I don't see "friend feed" listed on that menu. <BR> <BR> Has the friend feed option been renamed?

While visiting my "Start Page" and scrolling down the right-hand menu items underneath my current challenge(s), there is a blue link entitled: "Show Past Step 2 Features - More Goals & Goal Board ›" Previously, when ever I clicked that blue link from the start page, it allowed me to review my motivation board, check off any streaks I've added to spark, and allowed me to track water, the number of fruits and veggies consumed, and my mood from the original SP design.

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 17:19:11 EST Support groups Are there really only 4 support groups? Wed, 27 Dec 2017 14:30:29 EST Can’t login to spark people app on my new ipad Got a new iPad for Xmas.

Tue, 26 Dec 2017 13:34:00 EST Community Team Member I am a Community Team Member and for some reason the team is not listed as one of my teams but I am a member. I still have the emblem on my posts. Is there any way to put the team back on my lists of teams. I don't know if I did something to make it disappear but I don't think so. I believe I am meeting the requirements for the team. Please let me know what I need to do to get it listed. Thanks.

Hello, I'd like a Spark staff member to answer this question. Is following someone the same as adding someone as a friend? <BR> <BR> I remember asking about this in the past and at the time, I was told they were different functions. <BR> <BR> However, now it seems that if you follow someone, they automatically are added as a friend, and also vice versa - if I friend someone, they are automatically followed on the Community feed. <BR> <BR> I actually tested this out today to try to und... Fri, 22 Dec 2017 12:51:59 EST Groupings in Nutrition Tracker I love that groupings makes tracking the same meal easier, but I've discovered a disadvantage if you try to earn brings the group in as ONE food so you only get ONE point instead of a point for EACH food as you would if you track individually...sad face...Lol <BR> <BR> <em>24</em> Thu, 21 Dec 2017 12:43:02 EST How to access friend list page Hello, <BR> Question #1 <BR> Where does one access the page that tells you if you have been added or removed as a friend? <BR> <BR> Question #2 <BR> Also, I had a couple of friends leave and close their account, leaving their 'ghost' on my friend's list, how does one get these removed? <BR> <BR> Thank you <BR> Linda Mon, 18 Dec 2017 11:05:49 EST Q. re: my Favorites Hi, <BR> I wanted to find an article i saved in my favorites; yet, when i bring them up all that is there is recipes.

I have several older emails that I had (for one reason or another) not opened and therefore not earned the associated Spark points. I know I have not clicked the link because 1.) I was away from Spark for awhile and 2.) the email was highlighted by bold print which it only does if I have not yet opened that email. But when I tried to click the link today it told me I had already earned the points for reading that email. <BR> <BR> I also notice that often the same content is repeated in th...

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 15:27:32 EST Need help with calorie recommendation... I want to lose about 10 pounds but I want to do it slowly. I want to make sure that the calories they tell me to eat on this site are the right amount to get me to only lose one pound a week.

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 14:59:43 EST Leaving a team... I have doubts this is in the right place, but since there didn't seem to be a forum / category for "SparkTeam Questions," I'm posting it here. <BR> <BR> How do I leave a team? <BR> <BR> When I did an SP search, I ended up either at "Page not found" (note: perhaps old page links could be deleted from the Search?) or old answers that might no longer be accurate. <BR> <BR> The answer seems to be "Tick the button on the bottom right that says 'Leave this team.'" And indeed, that's the solutio... Fri, 15 Dec 2017 07:53:03 EST Sparkmail Hello <BR> I am not getting sparkmail. When it says I have mail I go there and there is none.
