Tue, 19 Sep 2017 23:08:42 EST Sparkpoints for premium 500 pts I just upgraded per the suggestion of the mobile app for the 500 points plus the features. I didn't add points and when I went to web version it said I received credit for premium so I can't get those points. I already had premium and received credit why did it make me pay again. I know it is a silly thing but just curious if anyone has had this issue Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:17:29 EST Trying hard to friend a friend I'm trying to friend a user that goes be the user name ARMY-MOM717.

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 17:20:45 EST step tracker accuracy I like that my apple watch syncs into sparkpeople to count my steps. However I am not sure how accurate it is with calories. one day the fitness page said I burned over 400 calories and then gave me that much more on my nutrition page. So I think I have been over on calories because of it. Is it better to just turn off the exercise feature? Starting today, I am going to delete the "apple watch steps" and just figure in my real exercise. Fri, 15 Sep 2017 15:50:00 EST Newbie with questions How do I find the Fall 5% Challenge page?

Sun, 3 Sep 2017 09:55:36 EST Keep having to reset emails - Since Sept 1 Hi, I have had my same email address for 20+ years and had no problems receiving my spark emails there up to and including Sept 1. On Sept 2 and today, SparkPeople keeps asking me to reset my email address, it automatically checks off the box that says 'Never email me again' (which I have to keep correcting), and I have not received any emails for those 2 days. There has been no change in my email address. Is there a way to override the system so that I will receive emails again?

I was tired so I honestly can't remember the article I was reading. One of the topics was emotional eating though. I've searched and seem to be going in circles. Is there any way to see what articles we have read so I can back up and find the link? These seemed like a series of good tips for beginners or those, like me, needing a reboot.

I believe it is because my Apple Watch is synced to the SP app and the calories that I burn are adding to my daily calorie goal. I haven't worked out yet today, but according to my watch, I've burned 400+ calories and it was automatically added to my goal. Is there a way to keep my daily calorie goal the same without adding my calories that I've burned? My initial goal was 1200-1550 calories, which I thought was very r...

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 18:25:18 EST Nutrition tracker not saving my entries I just opened an account today and entered my breakfast and lunch foods in the nutrition tracker. I closed the program and within 30 minutes I remembered a food I forgot to enter so I signed in again and when I went to the nutrition tracker, all the foods I had just entered were not there. Did I need to save something before exiting the program? Tue, 27 Jun 2017 17:07:18 EST How to adjust carbs I want to decrease the carbs in my nutrition tracker. If I ate as much as assigned here my blood sugars would be through the roof.. I did find the "how to edit a nutrient" and was able to change my calories but when I changed my carbs it did not change on the tracker. Seriously.. up to SEVENTY EIGHT grams of carbs per meal???!!! Per my doctor and nutritionist it should be between 30-40 but I can't seem to make this change. Right now I am just logging what I eat knowing in my head the num... Tue, 27 Jun 2017 14:38:20 EST Water tracker! I wish there was some way to move the water tracker to start page instead of having to go the round away to get to it. Its the one thing I constantly get in to to keep track of how many glasses I have drank. Just wondering. Love to have it simplier. Tue, 27 Jun 2017 14:07:02 EST Searching for people via zip code I remember when I was on this site before there was a way to search for people close to your zip code. I no longer see this option. On the page for spark pages it says... <BR> <BR> "Find a user by username, or click the Advanced Search link to find someone even more like you!" <BR> <BR> ...but I do not see an advanced search link anywhere on the page anymore (either that or I'm just blind). Tue, 27 Jun 2017 11:47:18 EST More prominence of streaks Like many people I find the streaks super motivating. It would be great if these were featured on the apps as well as online ☺ Tue, 27 Jun 2017 05:42:42 EST My Recipe Collections I was wondering if there is a way to sort the recipe collections that I create to save recipes I find here so that the titles of each collection are in alphabetical order.

Cheez-It Grooves?? Appropriate? I ask you. <BR> <BR> Moreover, must there unhealthy foods in the emoticons? Do you really think we need French fries? And those ridiculous faces? <BR> <em>486</em> <em>761</em> Sat, 24 Jun 2017 07:51:41 EST How do I write a blog post using the mobile site? I'm trying to write a blog post on my sparkpage.

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 09:18:40 EST selected food doesn't appear in the food tracker After "adding a selecting food in my Favorites" and receiving a notice that the food has been added to the tracker, the food doesn't actually appear in the tracker. <BR> I'm using a computer, and I've checked that popups are allowed. I've also tried different browsers. <BR> <BR> I'm returning to Sparks people after a very long break. In the past, I didn't have any trouble tracking. I suspect that my computer is at fault, but don't know what's wrong. <BR> Any suggestions? Wed, 21 Jun 2017 02:27:40 EST Widget Does sparkle for calories app have a Widget?

I and a number of sparkers I chat with have had our "never email me again" box checked. We didn't do it, so I assume it's a glitch in the Spark software? Please fix it. It sets my day off wrong if I check me email and haven't got my Spark notifications.

I have contacted fitbit, and did everything they suggested, and it still isn't working right. I wear a fitbit charge2, with tracks my sleep. It partially syncs, as in it always logs SOME sleep in my Sparkpeople account, but only about half of what my tracker records. For example, I will have gotten over 8 hours sleep logged on fitbit, but 4 or less show on my sparkpeople (its in other goals). Any ideas or suggestions?

It'll cause my screen to scroll down to the ad to view the ad I'm not of the income level to be taking vacations and I don't give a hoot about ads to begin with. I suggest something be done about such a controlling video because it's wasting people's time. Wed, 14 Jun 2017 10:38:24 EST Tracking Nutrition for Future Dates - No Longer? I just logged into Spark after a fairly long hiatus. I'm trying to map out meals for the week, but it looks like I'm limited to only today or past dates. Is that feature turned off or am I doing something wrong? Tue, 13 Jun 2017 13:00:08 EST Is this still available?? I just read this, I can't find it. Thanks <BR> <BR> <BR> I was just told about this feature and it rocks. It tracks your daily calories, fitness minutes & SparkPoints. You can look back at a week or a month and see how you made out. You get gold stars on the days you made your calorie target. Now I want to count gold stars and maybe make them a goal! <BR> <BR> More Information: <BR> From your start page it is on the left, below "My Goals" and it's in a big white box.
