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. (Yes, yes I am point driven!!!) Sun, 18 Feb 2018 11:55:18 EST Rejoin "Class Of" SparkTeam? Is it possible to rejoin your original "Class of (date)" team? Somehow I accidentally left the team without meaning to do so. <BR> <BR> <em>593</em> Sat, 17 Feb 2018 19:27:35 EST Tracking Nutrition Favorites Lately I can not manually enter my favorites on the Nutrition tracker. 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? Been searching the settings and found one box I had to tick if I want a pre-check before posting my fitnesstracker on FB (think that´s what it said). I would prefer to not share my activities on here on facebook. Thank you Sat, 17 Feb 2018 00:35:04 EST App How do I spin the wheel from the app? I can never find it anywhere.

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:21:58 EST inappropriate comments on my blog that i deleted inappropriate comments on my blog that i deleted since it offended me. the name of the party is fordracer and he wrote to me about manning up and about my health and weight and saying in 10 to 20 years i would be dead if i didn't take care of myself. I felt very hurt and offended by this comment. he also commented on some of my photos too trying to tell me what to do as well. 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.

On my site, "I'm Doing this for Me", I have joined the goals located at the bottom of the page, but I do not see the goals posted on the "Other Goals" page. <BR> <BR> All of the teams that I have in the past participated in are listed on the "Other Goals" page when the goals are chosen from other teams that I have participated in. <BR> <BR> My "I'm Doing this for Me" site is not posted.... Sun, 3 Dec 2017 11:58:26 EST New and Confused Day one and feeling a little overwhelmed. Challenges, feeds, points...oh my! More specifically...where do I post? Community feed, board, challenge feed? How do I know if someone has commented on or liked something I have posted? I don't wanna be rude and ignore. :) How do I respond to a comment on something I have posted? Why do I need/want points? Are there groups to join, or just challenges? Oh, so many Sun, 3 Dec 2017 10:20:34 EST Where do I start? Hello everyone: <BR> <BR> My name is Mark and I am new to sparkpeople and I am confused on where to start to learn how to use the website. Are there any instructions somewhere that I can read? The website is very confusing to me. Sun, 3 Dec 2017 00:10:00 EST fluctuating allowed calorie intake Hi all, I am confused. My weight goal is to stay the same. Daily allowance of calories I have set for max 1800. When I log exercise, lets say i've also burned 1800, my allowence of intake shoots up to the 3000s. If you want to stay the same, your intake and output should be the same, shouldn't it? So I don't understand why this allowance goes up. I would expect it would only go up if you burn more calories than your daily allowance. <BR> Thanks for helping me understand! Sat, 2 Dec 2017 23:41:37 EST food tracking slow I'm not sure why, but tracking my food again for the first time in a long time, is almost impossible. The search freezes up, the page stops responding and I'm entering food multiple times and unable to remove them. It's taken me over a half an hour and I haven't even been able to finish entering lunch & breakfast. This page and others seem to be loading fine. Is this a common problem now because of the amount of ads? Sat, 2 Dec 2017 13:10:21 EST syncing with device Will the mobile app for this site sync with a Garmin Vivosmart HR+? Tia <BR> <BR> Okay, I found how to connect them and did so, but the information is not showing up on SP? Says they are connected? Sat, 2 Dec 2017 12:06:50 EST Calorie Change My calorie goal for the day has been changed. It gives me more calories. I want what I had before. How do I change this? Sat, 2 Dec 2017 06:23:35 EST Goodie notifications Hi again, <BR> I've double checked my page and email settings on Sparks and keep looking in my spam for lost mail but I'm STILL not receiving notifications of spark goodies sent to me. Is there anything else I can do or is it a glitch on the site? <BR> I look forward to hearing your thoughts. <BR> <em>304</em> Sat, 2 Dec 2017 03:37:38 EST Blocking/Ignore on Community Feed Is it possible to block specific topics or members on the community feed Sat, 2 Dec 2017 01:43:05 EST New ticker icons, please? Can we please have some new ticker icons? A hamburger? Really? How many Sparkers would actually use a pacifier for their ticker? I was hoping to find a hiker to add to my mountains background.

If you have a family member with type 2 and is on insulin you would get the question wrong <BR> <BR> Trev Fri, 1 Dec 2017 03:56:36 EST Nutrition Tracker Would SparkPeople consider adding the ability to add to the macronutrients columns on this log page? Being on a keto diet, I really want to be able to see sugar alcohols easily so they can be deducted from total carbs. Right now there is almost no way to do this short of leaving a note at the bottom of the page - and that is way too easy to miss. Thanks! Thu, 30 Nov 2017 12:03:12 EST things I saw trying to fix Sparks Read one that said Sparks is freezing the web site, one that said wait 2 days for up dates, all kinds of things Thu, 30 Nov 2017 11:02:42 EST still cant open Sparkspeople in my ipad One time it let me enter my password and now again says app has to be updated by sparks.

This is not the reload pop up that sometimes comes up, it occurs when moving from the start page to sparkpoints or other Spark pages. Wondering if this is site problems or something Apple decided on. I am using my iPad but not the SP app but the regular site.

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 10:37:40 EST App Notifications Is there a way to adjust the timing of the notifications on the app. I always seem to get my reminder to log lunch at around 11:00 am. My dinner reminder comes around 4:00pm. Since I get the reminder so early that I just dismiss. I love the idea, but it would be more effective if the reminders came closer to lunch time or even after lunch. Mon, 27 Nov 2017 10:29:31 EST Friend Feed Disappeared?

When I go to the page of the people I miss hearing from, they are posting but I'm not seeing them show up. Is the filter feature no longer working? Did I or they somehow mute me?

Wed, 8 Nov 2017 06:10:19 EST trouble syncing with Garmin Hi Jen <BR> Not sure where the problem is but last night Garmin did not pass over data to SP. This does sometimes happen but has done it over night. This morning still nothing. <BR> <BR> <BR> I tried to enter the data manually but that screwed up my tracking of streaks. The mileage for the week should have been about 32 miles but was 54. I removed the entered data and it dropped to 44 . I have not found a way of going back to the 21 I had on Monday night so it is showing 44. <BR> <BR> Doe...

Tue, 7 Nov 2017 07:44:48 EST Can't use the "Map my route" I've tried on 2 different computers (and 2 different internets). It won't respond to the address I entered. Nothing moves. I've had a bunch of lags today- both the website and the app. Mon, 6 Nov 2017 19:50:48 EST Is anyone else having trouble logging food today? Earlier today I could see my favorites list, click on the items I wanted to log and choose the amounts of each item, but when I clicked to add them to my tracker nothing would happen. Other parts of the site worked as usual. <BR> <BR> I've now come back to try to log my food and my favorites will not even load. There's a message saying "loading favorites" but nothing is happening. <BR> <BR> Anyone know why this is happening or what to do about it? <BR> <BR> Thanks! <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> ...

Sun, 5 Nov 2017 08:44:45 EST mobile app not updating from Apple hea The last few day my Mobil app hasn’t updated from Apple heath. No steps, workouts nothing. I have everything toggled correctly. Is anyone else having this issue? Sun, 5 Nov 2017 01:39:13 EST Time changes I'm in the UK and since our clocks went back, Spark is miscalculating the time of everything I do. So for instance I've just posted a blog on Saturday 4th November but Spark is registering it as Sunday 5th November. It's driving me nuts. How do I change it? Sat, 4 Nov 2017 19:45:31 EST Weight Tracker not Updating... It seems that there's a hitch in the weight tracker. You enter data, save changes... and nothing gets saved. Time for a Techie to check it out!! <BR> patti Sat, 4 Nov 2017 12:19:47 EST Teams and members that are inactive I belong to two teams that are virtually identical. Can the one of that has no membership and no activity be deleted? <BR> <BR> I belong to another team that boasts over 100 members but nearly 90% are inactive not only with the team but on the site as a whole. Any way people can be deleted from the site or at least a team? <BR> <BR> I think SparkPeople is an incredible site but there are too many things that are outdated or obsolete from members, teams and articles. <BR> <BR> Although I...

My Fitbit is a charge 2 if that helps. Fri, 3 Nov 2017 18:45:21 EST Script Errors Been using SparkPeople for since the beginning--came and gone a few times inbetween and mostly when folks complain about this or that not working here I think they are being silly--after all the site is HUGE and free! Nevertheless it has always worked well for me over the years. Even joined premium membership some time ago. But now, its not working well at all. In fact it is down right frustrating. <BR> <BR> Recently, however, SP's website in FireFox browser aren't playing nice together.... Fri, 3 Nov 2017 18:23:23 EST Deleting Foods Hello, how do I delete foods from my favorites list? Thank you. Thu, 2 Nov 2017 23:04:04 EST Spark people reading workout data from Apple apps Can spark people read activity (calories expended, etc.) from Apple apps, either health or activity. Is this a premium feature? Am I missing something. <BR> <BR> Thanks Thu, 2 Nov 2017 22:38:33 EST Team Doesn't Display on SparkPage for New Members Hello, I'm a co-leader of a private team called TN Daily. In the past when I've joined a team, the icon appeared automatically on my SparkPage on my SparkTeams list. But this isn't happening for anyone who joins our team. I have instructed them to go to this page: <BR> <BR><BR>s_ <BR> my_teams.asp <BR> <BR> And click on the box "display on Sparkpage" for it to show up. <BR> <BR> But is there a way to make it automatic, that anyone who joins our te... Thu, 2 Nov 2017 15:06:41 EST Difference between Affinity Group and a Spark Team I have been noticing a new clickable that encourages SparkAmerica. When I clicked and read it, it used the word Affinity. <BR> <BR> Is this just something I missed in the past or is this sort of a new way to group? Thu, 2 Nov 2017 08:38:22 EST Mobile app "meal reminder" notifications I have the meal reminders turned on in the app and in my phone's app notification settings but I'm still not getting the push notifications. I also have the Daily coaching tips on but they aren't coming up either. <BR> <BR> The app version I have is 4.64 and my phone is running Android 7.0. Any ideas? Wed, 1 Nov 2017 15:18:57 EST Sparkcoach Mobile? Is there a way to access Sparkcoach from my phone while out of town? I've looked on the regular app, the mobile app and in the play store and can't figure out how to do it. Help please! Wed, 1 Nov 2017 10:09:25 EST Premium member, sparkrecipes now has ads? <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Why are there ads on my premium account? <BR> <BR> This "sponsored content" is junk, first one is shaming a woman because her dress slipped on TV... this is not relevant, and it's bullying media. Junk about savings and loans... what is going on? <BR> <BR> And I paid for no ads. I expect no ads. Wed, 1 Nov 2017 09:05:40 EST how do I stop notifications to my smart phone My moto g phone spark app shows a check mark in the top right corner and three slide switches set to on. I am unable to slide them off. When I click on the check i get routed to adds for spark people premium and other services. I get notifications for things I cant do, possibly because my computer has malware. I am in meetings during the day. I need to leave my phone on for emergencies, but we are constantly being interrupted by my phone's loud tones. The messages are asking me to log my food... Tue, 31 Oct 2017 16:40:28 EST Profanity on SparkPeople? So I was listing my gratitudes in one of my teams yesterday and typed a specific type of mushroom (sh----take), and I got booted with a message saying, "No profanity, please." <BR> <BR> First, I found it quite humorous, despite losing my entire post and having to redo it, but I am curious. I would have understood if the letters s - h - i - t would have all been together with a space after it, but as you can see from above, I had an "ake" at the end of the alleged profane word. <BR> <BR> A...

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 07:19:50 EST Reports Hello, <BR> <BR> I am not receiving reports when I click on the button. I’ve looked in my junk mail and they are not going there. Can you please help? This is one of the main reasons I signed up for premium. <BR> <BR> Thanks, <BR> Cari <BR> Mon, 30 Oct 2017 01:56:11 EST fitbit: all day exercise and logging excercise My fitbit and my sparkpeople are connected. My question is: In sparkpeople it tracks my "all day fitness" minutes. So if I go for a 30 minute walk or do 30 minutes of aerobic activity, do I need to tack that separately, or will that show in my "all day fitness" automatically? I don't want to double count minutes exercised and calories burned. Sun, 29 Oct 2017 15:42:17 EST Shared Nutrtion & Fitness? Ever since I joined, I left my Nutrition & Fitness trackers open to the public - but I was told this morning that no one can see them anymore. <BR> <BR> I checked my SparkPage and I still have them open to the public. Why isn't my friend able to see them anymore please? Sun, 29 Oct 2017 09:53:52 EST Can't get links to work Hi there. <BR> <BR> When I try and create a link to an article, it isn't working.

Sat, 28 Oct 2017 05:15:35 EST resetting goals Does changing my weight loss goal automatically change the recommended calorie range on the food tracker? <BR> I feel like my range is too high. Fri, 27 Oct 2017 12:18:13 EST Spark Groups How do I remove myself from some groups? I think there used to be an unjoin button to click & I don't see one anymore? I dont' participate anymore & would like to remove myself. Thanks Fri, 27 Oct 2017 06:22:25 EST Double Nutrients Does anyone know why on the nutrients below your meal plan that some things are on the chart twice? Especially Potassium K with different MG, there are nutrients that are doubled too: Cholesterol, Sodium. Calcium has different mg. too Thu, 26 Oct 2017 17:55:11 EST Blog Privacy Is there a way to set my blog to private? I need some time to work through some things and I like having it all in one place. Thanks Thu, 26 Oct 2017 16:06:19 EST Unfollow in Community Feed = Unfriend? I unfollowed one of my SparkFriends in the Community Feed because they were posting for points, rather than for conversation. Apparently clicking the Unfollow button in the Community Feed also removed them from my friends list, which was embarrassing when I had to re-friend them. <BR> <BR> This was unexpected behavior on my part - so I assume it's a bug, not a feature? Thu, 26 Oct 2017 09:07:33 EST Can I change my weigh-in day to Fridays? Hi, I don't want to reset; I just would like to change my weigh-in so my week starts on Friday. I thought I had figured that out before, but now I seem to have forgotten and can't find it. Can anyone help? Thank you! Thu, 26 Oct 2017 01:33:37 EST Confused I log in to the app and track food and post. Then I have to go to Google and say spark mail and log in to see if I have mail why is there two separate places to go into. And how do I send spark goodies? It says go to persons page and click spark goodies neither one of these places I log into have t he option. Am I using the wrong two apps? Is there just one? Wed, 25 Oct 2017 17:37:10 EST Tech Suggestion- Map your route Any way to let us save certain addresses to the "map my route" option?

Where do I find out on my computer who is following me? Wed, 25 Oct 2017 11:58:19 EST Fitbit Sync food or sleep? Hello, <BR> <BR> I thought that when I synced my Fitbit it would also transfer things like sleep or logged food and water, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Am I mistaken or is something not working properly? <BR> <BR> Thanks! Wed, 25 Oct 2017 09:42:11 EST How do I log mileage on android app? I cannot figure out how to log my mileage on my phone app. Can only do it from my desktop computer. Am I just stupid or is there not a way to do this? If there isn't, I would ask that sparkpeople please consider adding this feature to the app; would make it WAY more useful to me. <BR> <BR> Thanks! Mon, 23 Oct 2017 11:51:48 EST One of the teams I'm a member of has disappeared I am a member of the "Slightly Off the Wall" team. All was well when I went to my spark page yesterday. Today it has vanished from my page. I want it back! What can I do about this? Sun, 22 Oct 2017 21:07:30 EST Fitness minutes box on Start page disapearing when I click on Start... the little fitness minutes box shows up then disappears. I want to add my fitness minutes instead of tracking my individual workouts. I think it might be a problem with the start page! please help! Sat, 21 Oct 2017 21:23:06 EST How do I set my next weight goal? I cannot find how to do this, for example I want to set my next target/goal weigh for 12-31-17 Sat, 21 Oct 2017 19:10:16 EST Fitbit Question I have added my Fitbit to the app. It pulls in the daily totals for activity. Does that count as the exercise? I do exercise and it is counted in the fitbit total. I am just wondering if the software counts that for the streaks and exercise trophies? Fri, 20 Oct 2017 23:17:30 EST Member start date. I can't remember when I started SP. Where do I find that? Fri, 20 Oct 2017 20:37:53 EST Custom Goals Several times I have set my specific daily goals for calories, fats, carbs, proteins. Those goals only seem to hold for a day or so and then go back to a default setting from Sparkpeople. How can I get my specific daily goals to stay to what I have established?
