Wed, 4 Mar 2015 06:10:30 EST Triple post? I just started a new topic on Spark People Challenges and it is up there 3 times! Yikes. How do I delete? Tue, 3 Mar 2015 14:39:37 EST Fitbit not syncing correctly w/ nutrition tracker I love my fit bit but I have one complaint. It doesn't track correctly with my Spark People nutrition tracker. When I delete something from my nutrition tracker it doesn't delete from my fit bit. This is bad because sometimes I enter a food just to find out the calories, carbs, etc. Some days the fit bit shows hundreds or thousands of calories more than I have taken in. I have a fit it flex. Is anyone else having this problem? Any suggestions on how I can correct this? Thank you! Tue, 3 Mar 2015 11:03:56 EST Stop e-mails-"World's Largest Virtual Weigh-in?"

I have a GREAT and simple strawberry/banana smoothie recipe I'd like to share - simple, easy, low-carb/cal and doesn't require Yogurt.

I HAVE to believe it is my own stupidity, but I'm about to give it up. When I can't find something, I have to end up putting an item together, which is VERY time consuming, so that it will track my calories, carbs, fats, and protein.

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 22:35:51 EST Please stop prompting to confirm every deletion I think it would be better if when I click a red 'x' in the UI, the item just goes away. If I delete an item by accident, it's no biggie, I can add just it back. But when I want to delete 10 items because I accidentally added a grouping or something, I have to go back and forth to that infernal pop-up dialog box that asks if I'm sure. <BR> <BR> It's a bit of overkill to test whether I'm sure for this scenario. 99% of the time, it's on purpose and doesn't need me to confirm it. <BR> <BR> Th... Wed, 25 Feb 2015 17:52:08 EST Usability issues SparkPeople is great for one person, but works very poorly for families. There should be a way to link accounts, so that all the groupings and favourites are automatically sync'ed. At the very least one should be able to import that stuff manually (though that's a drag), but even that option seems impossible anymore (all the tech help I see for this seems to apply to an outdated version of the website). Sad, because I had high hopes for SP, but it may be impossible for us to use as a family. ...

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 03:09:37 EST Calorie burn-shoveling vs. snow blower, others According to the SP fitness tracker, I burn 82 calories for using a snow blower for 30 minutes and only 110 for shoveling snow for 30 minutes. That just doesn't seem reasonable at all. I think shoveling snow requires quite a bit more of an expenditure that walking behind a snow blower. Also, I understand that SP uses good technology for its calorie burning calculations, but for running, SP is consistently quite a bit lower than several other fitness tracking web sites. <BR> Thank you.

Wed, 14 Jan 2015 22:47:54 EST spark summary calendar Hi <BR> I would love if my spark summary calendar would also have the calorie differential as an option. That way at a glance, I could tell if I am on my mark. I have been using the differential reports and a calculator and making my own calendar. That would be soooo helpful. Thank you.

Wed, 14 Jan 2015 19:25:55 EST Tracking food with SP and Jawbone UP Hello, <BR> Can anyone tell me how to track my food here and have it show up Jawbone up? Yes, my devices ARE synced. I notice that the steps I take, etc. with jawbone show up here in my fitness tracker but I do not see my tracked food calories from here in my UP app. Today I tried the reverse -- tracked food in UP to see if they show up here and they do not. How does this work??? Or do they only sync for tracking fitness? Wed, 14 Jan 2015 18:05:18 EST I don't see where weightloss is tracked I entered a starting weight last week & put down new weight this week - I lost a pound, no big deal but where I am on the start page where fitness tracker is, it shows I have not lost anything. Do I need to put measurements in such as waist, hips, etc. in order for that to show? I think it is good motivation to see what you lose as far as weight goes. Thank U so much for any help I can get. Wed, 14 Jan 2015 18:04:11 EST Spark Activity Tracker battery- steps lost So I went on a run today but when I got back my tracker light was blinking red. I synced my steps (just over 6,000) and then changed the battery. However when it re-synced after, it dropped my daily steps down to 440. It kept my work out minutes but now I won't reach my step goal today. Is there a way to fix that?

It seems that the Step 2: Track More Goals on the Start page is not the same as the goals listed when I go to My Trackers: Other Goals. I would like to be able to check off those Track More Goals for past days where I wasn't able to get online, but it seems like you can only check off today's, nothing more. (which is unlike the Other Goals section, where you can check off any date). <BR> <BR> Is there a way to do that? <BR> <BR> Thank you! <BR> <BR> Mon, 12 Jan 2015 22:03:05 EST Doing the 5k program again.

It would be much better if the streaks trophies were not tied in with the other trophies. Our friends feeds are filling up with these 3- and 5-day streak trophies that are just not as interesting or significant as the others, but we have no way of turning off the viewing of those streaks. I've chosen to delete my streaks, but that defeats the purpose of something that could be a good motivator. ...

It's not just once in awhile, it happens quite often. I'm trying to access it via the team page where it lists new members and the usernames I'm trying are underlined so I know there is a Spark page there.

Hi, <BR> <BR> I would like to know if there is a way to add Sugar to the different items that our Food Tracker tracks, along with things like fat, protein, carbs, etc. Our foods are SO packed with hidden sugars, and sugars themselves are more dangerous than anything. <BR> <BR> Is there a way to modify the tracker or do I have to start a seperate tracking method for that? <BR> <BR> Thank you!

Please help or Iam going to have to find another diet plan. This is very irritating to try to get my information into your diet.
