I deleted the workout from my fitness tracker page, however, the Fitness Minutes on today's Sparkpoints page still show. In the past, when I've posted a workout on the wrong day, the fitness minutes are deleted when the workout is deleted. <BR> How can these minutes be removed? Thank you. Wed, 20 Jun 2018 12:25:21 EST Finding my saved articles How do I find my saved articles? I've looked every where and couldn't find a place to look through the ones I've saved. I've had to email the article to myself and search for it through my email. I hope I'm just overlooking a very simple fix! Thanks for any help! Wed, 20 Jun 2018 10:49:47 EST Which SP coach or staffer should I send SPmail? There is an SP member who may be in distress, medical or otherwise. I say this based on two of her posts on a Game board, one last night, the other, this morning. It may well be that I'm misreading mere broad humor or snideness, but her team memberships (according to her page) imply that she has type 2 diabetes and may be following some cockamamie plan (not that I know what's cockamamie for that illness). <BR> <BR> Might someone on staff ask her how she's doing or some such?

Whatever your Tech people have been up to, they are wasting a LOT of computer memory space!! Can we get rid of the double posts somehow?!

The only pattern I can see is that the photos that are okay have the blue button. However, the photos that aren't okay have the comments greyed out and are missing the blue button. The only other pattern is that I think perhaps this problem started after the May 25th change for EU citizens. I hope that's not too much to ask. Mon, 28 May 2018 18:20:22 EST Custom Meal Plans?

I have recently begun using SparkPeople on my laptop & PC. But because every page has 8-12 advertisements running at the same time (top, bottom, far and near left and right margins and intermittently on the page), it becomes way too bogged down, stalls my browser, freezes up my computer, and becomes counterproductive to even log in. <BR> (For example, as I type this I am on a page with 3 ads for Hewlett Packard, 2 for Walden University, CeraVe, Aveda, and jtv. 8 ads total running on this pag...

Today it said it couldn't find it, but did list another similar one. I put it in the way the tracker named it today after it didn't come up at all the first time.

I was wondering whether you could please grant me access to my data for that period of time (even for a day only, so that I could download it for my records). I was not aware that there seemed to be a 5 year maximum amount of time for the Sparkpeople data. <BR> <BR> Thank you so much!

Wed, 9 May 2018 09:49:51 EST Error when editing sparkrecipes I've noticed an issue that seems to be duplicating itself (over several weeks)- when I go into edit a recipe, almost anything that was tracked in grams seems to default to cups or whole things (eg 125 onions instead of 125 g of onions). I suspect it's defaulting to the first option in the pull-down measurement options for each ingredient. This doesn't happen with items I've manually tracked, rather general items like onions/tomatoes/etc. Wed, 9 May 2018 08:09:27 EST New Android Cell I got a new Android cell and when I try to open Sparkpeople it wants me to start as a new user.

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.

I am eating NO sugar except what's in fruit. Besides, 67 is between 0 and 90! Of course I know I'm right but I'm puzzled. Am I doing something wrong?

I was very ill from November thru to the end of January or so and, whilst 'out for the count' lost my precious 1600 login-in streak! I was very upset indeed, but started over - since when I am getting the idea that some days are not updating. Today it's showing 1 Day - but it was showing that yesterday and the day before, even though I had spun the logging-in wheel. I wonder if you could check this for me, please? Thank you so much.

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 19:55:07 EST Weight report trendline problems I know how to change the start weight for my trendline on my weight report. What I would like to know is why that start weight resets every time I update my goal weight in the app. <BR> <BR> For example, I don't set huge, long-term goal weights - I do 2-5lb at a time. But when I go in to reset the goal, it also resets my "start" weight on the trendline. So instead of a trendline that's reasonably close to my data, I end up with an almost-flat one. <BR> <BR> Specifics: <BR> July, 2017, 2...

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 17:46:52 EST Photo uploads Hello SP'erz, <BR> I have not been able to upload photos from one place in SP (motivational pics) to share with other member's in my feed. 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!

Wed, 7 Mar 2018 11:56:20 EST Changing Dates on Nutrition Tracker I am wanting to go back to my Nutrition Tracker from when I first joined, but as that was nearly 11 years ago it would be rather time consuming because we have to click back each month at a time. <BR> <BR> Is it possible that the Tech Wizards can make it that we can click on a year and a month, and go back that way, rather than each month manually? <BR> <BR> It would so much more 'user friendly' <em>211</em> <BR> <BR> Kris Wed, 7 Mar 2018 03:52:06 EST Print in Spark People I am curious as to why you made the print so much smaller.

I can find no way to block these emails and it is really irritating to find my email filled with these challenge requests.

TIA Mon, 19 Feb 2018 07:17:34 EST Bonus Spin Hi! My question concerns the Bonus Spin. I use both a PC and the app on my phone. I have noticed that when I get a Bonus Spin I am not able to spin it on the app. Does anyone know a trick to this? It is very inconvenient when I am not in a place to use the PC to spin.

I prefer entering my favorites manually according to what the package food has for nutrients rather than search others. This way I know just what I have entered. The cursor jumps around, doesn’t save my info or just won’t let me enter anything. Doesn’t matter if I use my computer or IPad. Anyone else having a problem like this or know how to fix it? This is getting very frustrating. Sat, 17 Feb 2018 15:46:06 EST Are my activities shown on Facebook? Hello, <BR> <BR> I was just wondering if what I do or parts of what I do on this site comes up automatically on facebook?

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 11:16:51 EST Import recipes I would LOVE to be able to import recipes from TOH. Been opening 2 tabs...1 for TOH and 1 for Spark People Recipes...and manually typing them in. I'm sure a lot of people would jump for joy if a way were developed to import recipes. I LOVE SparkPeople! Your nutrition tracking has helped me not only follow calories, carbs, fat, etc., but it's helped me track my potassium intake. One of my meds causes me to retain potassium.

It is not helpful to know I'm below or above on any given category if I cannot see how it is calculated--specially under Iron.

I find it distracting and, honestly, depressing. I know you guys have to pay the bills, but can you and/or your advertisers be a little more sensitive about what images appear? I hate to see pictures of brownies, cakes, sammiches and the like that are just NOT on my meal plan. Thanks and I love everything else about Spark People!!!

Sun, 28 Jan 2018 16:50:31 EST Dietary Needs Feature: Low Sodium Coach Jen (or others)- <BR> <BR> I wanted to echo the sentiments of others who asked for sodium tracking to be a little easier. One thing that would help a lot is to have a low sodium option in the Recipes area like you have with GF, vegan, vegetarian, etc. I'm sure there are a ton of requests for added features but thought I would make a bid for easier ways for us to manage sodium. <BR> <BR> Thanks for all you do!
