SparkPeople Site/Technical Help Messageboard Have a question about your program or the web site? Get answers here. SparkPeople Site/Technical Help Messageboard account has reset Hi, when I logged in today, an "update" page came up (I thought). I thought it was asking me to update my goals, so I did. I now realize that it was resetting my account info from February on to 0. Is there anyway to undo this? I'm not sure why it was treating me as a new member when I logged in with my usual info. Thanks Thu, 30 Jun 2016 11:35:58 EST Contact spatkpeople team Does anyone know the number to contact sparkpeople? I received a text message with a charge amount for sparkenergy.

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. It was so easy to find members in my area or find members where I'd travel to. <BR> <BR> Thanks, chris Mon, 23 May 2016 11:44:00 EST Can't edit comment on blog on iPad Trying to edit comment on a blog.

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'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."
