Wed, 25 May 2016 22:31:40 EST Need to adjust BMR after connecting FitBit Zip Hello, I am wearing a FitBit Zip all the time now and it tracks all my light exercise like doing errands, walking around, etc. Since SparkPeople's BMR is already adjusted to account for daily activities, I'm having these calories counted as being expended twice. Is there any way I can adjust for this? Thanks! Wed, 25 May 2016 14:47:57 EST Individualized Tickers? <em>252</em> I would LOVE a ticker that would accept words rather than numbers. I am on my way to ONEderland. I'd like to be able to have a ticker that would reflect the following: <BR> 290 (SW) --- Half-way There (245) --- ONEderland (199). <BR> <BR> That would be a great motivational tool for me. <BR> <BR> Then, after I reach 199, I'd make it: <BR> ONEderland (199) --- Half-way There (175) --- GOAL (150) <BR> <BR> Words are so much more powerful and meaningful that numbers.

Is there a way to make it default to the View that everyone else has? Wed, 25 May 2016 09:07:02 EST Can't get to my page or blog... A few months ago, apparently changes were made and I had to start going to "create sparkpage" to access my page, write a blog, or update my status. For the past week, I can't access my sparkpage, write blogs, or update staus at all! The best I can do is get to my profile page and all I can do from there is view my old blogs, add a profile picture, and write a new description. Any ideas how to get to my page?

However now it won't show calories burned anymore. I tried disconnecting and reconnecting it, nothing. According the my spark page I have burned 3 calories while my fitbit app tells me 944 calories anyone else having this issue and if so any ideas on how I can put it back the way it was a serious motivator for me. Tue, 24 May 2016 14:52:22 EST How to enter calories burned while doing a favorit I've been away from SP for a long time.

I seem to have some challenges that I did last year (in 2015) that still have not reset... the calendars still have the check marks.. yet are inviting me to join. Would it be possible to have those five or six (5 or 6) challenges reset? I was told previously that they would auto-magically reset after 30-days had elapsed from my leaving a challenge.

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:14:29 EST Having trouble with daily spin and bonus spin It is 7a.m. and I have tried numerous times to do my daily spin but cannot do it because the wheel is not coming up, just an ad. The ad just sits there! I have closed completely out of my computer and come back to spark - no wheel. Every try brings up a different ad. Haven't been able to successfully close out of any of them. Clicking on the X just allows me to choose whether I want to see that particular ad and I can say why I don't see it but then a new ad comes up. <BR> Tue, 24 May 2016 07:08:36 EST The new page format, 1 member's response+comments Dear Spark Friends, <BR> Wednesday, May 18, 2016 <BR> <BR> Dear Spark Friends, <BR> <BR> I will no longer be actively participating in SP. I have been unhappy with many of the changes over the past couple of years and the changes to my Spark page is the final straw. I personalized my page to be the way I wanted it and hoped that it reflected my personality. SP has seen fit to change the pages to a blah, cookie cutter thing without my permission. <BR> <BR> I have been a member for several... Mon, 23 May 2016 19:28:36 EST Help!!! HTML? I can not send sparkmails. It says to delete the HTML. I sent one this morning and I did not have this problem. I would glad to delete the HTML if I knew where it is. There do not appear to be any emoticons or anything. However this sparkmail was a reply. Please let me know what to do. It is hard to be a team leader and not be able to communicate with the other members. Thanks. Mon, 23 May 2016 16:31:53 EST Idle thought It's seems to me to be a psychological truth, that when we get advance notice of changes we are curious and a little excited to see what they are; when they are dumped on our heads, there is an entirely different response. At least, that's how it is for me. Just FYI, no response needed. You guys are busy enough... Mon, 23 May 2016 13:24:32 EST Hard go back to a member's spark page. I clicked on a member's blog t showed up on my team page. <BR> <BR> After reading the blog, I wanted to go back to her sparkpage. I found the "information" button at the top. I think that did get me to her sparkpage--but f it was labeled "go back to so and so's sparkpage" it would be easier to find. <BR> <BR> thanks, chris Mon, 23 May 2016 11:46:24 EST Map showing sparkpeople members I wish this was available again. I am hoping with your new changes you could find a way to put that back up again.

Hers didn't (and neither does mine) and she was upset that no one could add her as a friend. She was also very upset about the other pages changes, as well. I just think this ... Sun, 22 May 2016 10:13:43 EST Running PR and calorie burn calculators are OFF I use Runkeeper when I run and the numbers compared to Spark's are different. I did further research, using a few other online calculators and while all were off a little, Spark is at the bottom. A difference of 82 in calories burned and 1.5 minutes off my PR is I will now ignore every other calculation Spark provides because I doubt it is accurate. I realize nutrition and suggested daily calorie intake is a suggested guideline but for some people that keep track of these numbers... Sun, 22 May 2016 10:08:22 EST App Help Hello, <BR> I'm not sure if this is the proper board to ask this question, but I'm wondering about tracking restaurants (nutrition values) on the app. Is there a way to do this? Is there a database of restaurants? If so, how do I do it? <BR> <BR> Thank you! <BR> Adkjo1968 Sun, 22 May 2016 10:08:06 EST Nutrition Tracker Is there a way for me to ONLY track the food that I scan with the nutrition scanner or restaurant nutrition? I see soon many foods out there entered by other people for the same food with different values. I would rather scan my own food to know it is correct. I know I can make my food a favorite, but does that just show MY nutrition entries? Sun, 22 May 2016 09:18:49 EST Apple Watch I do have an Apple Watch.

Wed, 18 May 2016 12:35:02 EST IPAD and New Look The new format for my Spark page is very difficult to navigate on my IPAD, which is how I mainly access Spark. I know many of us resist change, but this is not an improvement -- it makes it much more difficult to participate. I would hope technicians would have taken into account how the new look would affect those of us with tablets, or primarily use our phones to log in during the work day.

I had motivational quotes set up there that really helped me through. I hate that I have to now go to another button to pull those up. Everything you do to the site makes it less user friendly!

I've done all the challenges I'm going to do, but I find my own goal setting and meeting very conducive to success. To quote SparkGuy in his book, "The core of the program is an effective combination of nutrition and fitness with goal-setting techniques." Reviewing my own goals daily is so important and I think newer people would benefit from the "in your face" presentation. Sat, 14 May 2016 15:57:19 EST What is up with the food people enter?!

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 08:40:11 EST Portion References Would be Great It would be nice to have a drop down tab in the Nutrition area that gives visual clues to portions. Like the deck of cards = ## ounces. A dice/1" cube = ## ounces. Visuals so we can get closer to recording our actual intake. Some times ounces doesn't mean much to me. At least I'm not challenged when the food is measured in teaspoons/Tablespoons/Cups!

People tell me my status statement is set to private. I went to edit my page and to the feed checklist. I don't see anything that tells that it's private or not. I want people to be able to comment on my status. <BR> <BR> Thanks for any help. Mon, 28 Mar 2016 17:49:53 EST DUPLICATE ITEMS??

This is a feature I used a lot in the past and now it seems to be missing. I know how to access it from the web but am wondering if it is possible to still access it from the app? If not, would it be possible to get this feature back?

I know there is an option to share with others and I have that checked off. <BR> <BR> Thank you Sun, 27 Mar 2016 15:34:30 EST Minor Suggestion re BMI As a way to encourage even small victories, it would be nice if under the section: Your Body Mass Index (BMI) and Target Weight Ranges <BR> <BR> It divided the obese range into the 3 levels so that one could celebrate moving from a higher level of obesity to a lower level. Another thing it would accomplish is not having a result that is "off the chart." Many of us hear or experience cruel treatment as a result of our being "off the chart" so it would be nice NOT to be "off the chart" here on...

Start tracking your servings today!" <BR> <BR> I have looked and looked and I don't see it! I know it used to be at the top of the food tracking page, which made a lot of sense, but I haven't seen it in a long time.

Please help! <BR> <BR> Thanks, <BR> Jill Sat, 26 Mar 2016 14:55:51 EST Private Journal/Planner I would like to use a private journal to document my efforts. A search of Sparks told me to click on My Trackers and select Planner. Mine doesn't show any Planner. But if I click on the link "your planner page" I can get there. It would be cumbersome to use that method all the time. Why doesn't "Planner" appear in "My Trackers'? <link><BR>asp?spiid=57 </link> Sat, 26 Mar 2016 10:17:30 EST Distance tracking on mobile app Is there a way to track distance in the mobile app similar to how we track distance on the website?

I have had this happen at least 3 or 4 times now. If I go to the challenge it shows a green check mark saying I completed/clicked it but not on the main page. I'm not 100% sure that I'm not getting the Sparkpoints because I don't watch that closely but I am pretty sure I'm not. I've tried different devices but the same problem happens. <BR> Is this something you can help me with? <BR> <BR> Thank you, <BR> ...

Are there any vegan/vegetarian alternate plans that I could select or do I have to substitute for each dairy/meat entry one at a time? Also, if using meal plans, is there a way to see them in advance without have to select upcoming dates on the Nutrition Tracker so that I know what to shop for? Would like to hear how others use this feature. Thanks Tue, 22 Mar 2016 17:17:16 EST What happened to the iPad app? I have been using the app for the iPad since the first of January and loved it! It was easy for me to track my nutrition and exercise each day. Last Friday I couldn't get the app to work at all. I looked for updates, but couldn't find any. That evening my son suggested that I delete the app and load it on again. That's when I discovered that the app was no longer available for iPad. Will it be available again?

Unfortunately, the food tracker won't let me put in a calorie range of less than 1200. I understand why - less than 1200 cal per day for someone who has not had surgery is not advised. <BR> <BR> As weight loss surgery becomes safer & more effective, more and more people are accessing this tool.
