When I looked at my Friend list, she isn't there and nor is she appearing on the SparkPages page. She did change her SP name a few months ago, so maybe she's still in the Community under her old name, which I can't remember. I cannot imagine that she has deleted herself, so is there a way SP staff can check for me please? She de... Fri, 24 Apr 2015 16:43:50 EST Weight ticker Just noticed my weight is recorded in Kg.

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 11:36:39 EST Time of Meal Hi, SparkPeople! <BR> <BR> I am in a Pre-Diabetes/Diabetes Prevention Program at my local YMCA and we are tracking our food. SparkPeople is an excellent way for me to easily track what I eat. But, one thing we have to list is the time we eat. There is no place for me to add that on my SparkPeople Tracker. Could you add a column to add the time each meal is eaten? It really does have an impact on my weight loss. I find eating my heaviest meals in the morning (I'm not a breakfast person ...

I was showing it to my boss earlier and trying to get it to light up and it remained stubbornly dark. When I got home I did all the troubleshooting I could Google, and nothing revived it, not even two different fresh-out-of-the-pack batteries. Am I boned? Do I have to order a new one? Or can I somehow Frankenstein it back to life? <BR> <BR> -VelvetAlchemist Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:01:46 EST Tickers Hi, <BR> I was wondering if there is a way to track steps towards a step goal on any of the available signature tickers? <BR> <BR> Thanks for your help Wed, 22 Apr 2015 23:05:06 EST News Articles SparkPeople used to have very timely news article on the site related to health. I would often read something on Spark before I heard it on NPR. <BR> <BR> I've looked around and can no longer find this information. Am I missing it somewhere? Thanks.

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 11:10:27 EST I miss the Spark Save That used to be where you could set goals for financial stuff, and then do a budget to get to your goal. I miss that! I wish they would bring it back. I was very disappointed they took that off. I understand that they have to have resources to maintain their website, but that was an awesome part of Spark People. Can you please???? bring it back????

Does SparkPeople have a tool where I can enter the ingredients in a recipe and it will calculate the nutritional value per serving of the dish? Or is there a tool online that anyone knows of?

Then in January I changed it back to 10,000. <BR> <BR> My tracker counts my steps and reports them accurately to sparkpeople, and the website shows that I've reached my goal, but the lights on my tracker only go partway around. This happens even though there have been no reclassified workouts. <BR> <BR> I've taken the battery out, waited severa... Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:38:14 EST Monthly Fitness minutes calculating correctly When I go to track my fitness and scroll down to where it displays Month/Year Minutes the Monthly minutes are wrong. It is showing I have 46 minutes and I just got my trophy for 1000 minutes a couple of days ago. If I change the date to last week it displays the correct minutes up to that point. The same thing happened last month: it worked until week 3 and then it reset. <BR> Am I doing something wrong? <BR> I apologize if this has already been reported but I couldn't find it. <BR> Thanks Tue, 21 Apr 2015 14:19:47 EST Apps I received the email entitled "The Weekly Spark", clicked on the "Paleo Living Just Got Easier".

I'm just wondering why I can't search using just the first three or four letters of a food and actually get the obvious food to come up at the top of the SP list of foods. <BR> <BR> If I search my manually entered foods, I only have to do the first three or four letters and entries fitting the bill come up. For example, if I search for Marmite, I only have to get as far as "marm" and it comes up. <BR> <BR> Perhaps that's not a great example for the SP food list but there are certain foods... Sun, 19 Apr 2015 17:14:43 EST Something is wrong with the article point system.. I just wanted to warn the moderators of this site that there seems to be something wrong with the point system for the articles. I accidentally awarded myself points twice for the same article and it allowed me to. In the past, when I had gotten the points and tried again by accident it would inform me they had already been awarded. It's not doing that anymore. Sun, 19 Apr 2015 12:15:53 EST Photos are loading sideways Why would my photos be loading sideways when I upload them to my spark page?

I want to change the staart day of the week in 'Other Goals' is this possible? Sun, 19 Apr 2015 00:21:52 EST Spark tracker mis-classifies workout I have tried placing spark tracker on different parts of my body. From shoes to waste to hurt rate monitor band. It simply will not recognize an elliptical workout. Will always classify it as either a cycle workout or a walking workout. This causes less calories burned to be recorded. How do I fix this? Tried other brands and they work correctly Sat, 18 Apr 2015 16:58:59 EST Activity Tracker Setup File Won't Download I have attempted several times to download the installer program from the\setup webpage for the Activity Tracker we just received. I've tried from both Google Chrome and IE 9. We are running Windows 7. Is the website down?

Is there a way to avoid this? Thu, 16 Apr 2015 09:06:06 EST Looking back in tracker I used to be able to go back years in my trackers, which was very useful to see what was working nutritionally and in exercise at different times in my life. Now I can only go back 1month. Is that right or am I doing something wrong? If it is right that is very disappointing. All the time I put into tracking and now I can't even access it!?!? That makes it hard to be motivated to track if it won't be accessible long term. <em>39</em> Thu, 16 Apr 2015 08:53:56 EST Water & Food I have mostly adapted to the new format on Spark, but something that still is unfriendly to use is the water tracker being on a different page than the nutritional tracker. <BR> <BR> Is it possible to have an option to put the water tracker on the nutrition tracker page? After all, when you are finally sitting down to have a meal is when water is also consumed. I fine this an illogical disconnect. Wed, 15 Apr 2015 20:28:01 EST Calendar Hi - I have been gone a while and am getting back into Sparkpeople... <BR> <BR> I used to be able to print out a calendar - it had things like calories in, and fitness minutes - or goals met - I got to it from the old start page. It was a good way to see how I had done over time... <BR> Does that functionality still exist, and if so, how do I get to it Wed, 15 Apr 2015 15:59:35 EST Technical help Need contact info/number for technical help.

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 10:21:22 EST Streaks My daily water streak is missing a lot of days. It should equal my log-in streak, because I do them both before I go anywhere else. The water is always short. <BR> <BR> It's actually demotivating to not get appropriate credit. Tue, 14 Apr 2015 19:55:52 EST 500 calories a day goal I came from a very basic calorie counting site and I like this one better because of all the info and options. The only think I can't seem to find is the other site has this: <BR> Daily calorie budget <BR> 0 <BR> Food calories consumed <BR> 0 <BR> Exercise calories burned <BR> 0 <BR> Net calories so far today <BR> 0 <BR> Then I could do a weekly so far total: <BR> Prior to today I am 977 calories under my weekly budget <BR> Is there someway to get this info on here? Tue, 14 Apr 2015 13:26:17 EST Where is the Quiz page? Where can I locate the page that gives lots of ways to get points like questionnaires. Tue, 14 Apr 2015 12:40:17 EST finding different parts of spark people??????? Why don't you create an appendix so new people will have a reference for information and places to find things,definitions too. I have been on Spark twice and still can't remember how to log onto a team, how to share my points, sending team points etc. You need a table of contents!!!!! <em>304</em> <em>303</em> .

I had changed some things on my fitness goals (tracking steps/mileage per week) but since have removed those goals. But my calorie range has remained at 1290-1640.

Sun, 5 Apr 2015 22:58:31 EST High point totals <BR> I am curious what folks are doing to get such high point totals. I see upwards of 9000 points in a month.

They returned values between 600 and 850 kcal. <BR> <BR> I know that energy expenditure can't be calculated to the last kcal, or the last 10 kcal. But that seems an awfully big gap.

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 19:28:32 EST Lost Spark Activity Tracker So I managed to lose my SPAT yesterday. I had been wearing it in my sock which worked great, but the weather warmed up and hence no socks.

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 11:34:32 EST Suggestion for Nutrition Tracker Feedback I don't know if this has been suggested before or if it's even possible, but for those of who have communication between the nutrition and fitness trackers turned on (and thus our daily recommended caloric intake changes), it would be nice for those ranges to show up when we get our feedback for the next day as well. <BR> <BR> Just as an example.

The food database is VERY small, the transition from MFP to this just is not working well. When I log food in MFP I can a barcode or type in part of a name and its found no problem.

Sun, 15 Mar 2015 10:27:38 EST Adding foods not listed When adding a food not listed, the serving option gives you choices such as 1 serving, 1/4 cup, etc. When entering a serving as 1/4 cup you don't know until you "save" the food that that is an "invalid" serving size. You don't get an option go to back and correct it or find the error. You have to enter all the nutritional information all over again. Not user-friendly.

I have to wonder if it isn't better to watch the workout videos from SP on a larger format, like Roku or Apple TV, etc. <BR> <BR> Also, this is a "pet peeve" of mine .... I am hard of hearing and have lots of friends that are the same or... Mon, 2 Mar 2015 17:04:28 EST is there a way to export a team report I am trying to run a report for my team competition of steps and weight loss, can anyone help? Mon, 2 Mar 2015 15:58:07 EST My Spark Mail <img src=""> Every Day I get this same message. Does any one know what I can do about this? It is driving me crazy. Is something set wrong on my computer Mon, 2 Mar 2015 09:37:22 EST Report Suggestion I think it would be very helpful if the weight chart over time could be added/overlaid on the calorie differential report. I find that I spend a lot of time trying to compare the reports. I think it would be nice if you could see at a glance how the activity level and nutrition affects the weight entries. <BR> <BR> Just a thought! Sun, 1 Mar 2015 13:30:44 EST Blank areas of emails For about the past week, there have been large blank areas on some of the emails, especially on the Recipe of the Day email. They look like something should be therem but if you click on them it takes you to a site called liveintent.cim. Can you please help? Thank you. <BR> <BR> It is also on the Best of Spark People Daily email.

Sun, 1 Mar 2015 08:32:02 EST I need to buy a battery for my tracker I have used both batteries that come with my tracker and I need to buy a new one.

Can anyone help? <BR> <BR> Thanks Sat, 28 Feb 2015 12:46:49 EST Swai fish and nutrients Nightmare Been working my nutrition tracker for hours each day for two weeks. Think it's wonderful, very difficult to use and nigh on impossible to explain to another newbi, however, tonight i encountered the mother of all snafus. I'm accoustomed to o entering an item, finding and selecting it and then checking the nutritional values before in adding it into my tracker. Frequently I've had to do two or three selections to get a complete one and that's ok, it makes me more aware of the values and af... Fri, 27 Feb 2015 23:23:33 EST Fitbit One vs Fitbit Hr Charge I currently have a Fitbit One. I am thinking about changing to the Fitbit Charge Hr so it will record heart rate. Anyone have it yet? If so, I would appreciate any comments. Fri, 27 Feb 2015 19:44:51 EST HOW DO I SHARE A RECIPE? I have a GREAT and simple strawberry/banana smoothie recipe I'd like to share - simple, easy, low-carb/cal and doesn't require Yogurt. I wanted to share it after ti went to the trouble to create it (including nutrition info) and add to my tracker, but once that was done did not see an option. Is there any way I can add it now? If so, how? <BR> Fri, 27 Feb 2015 18:26:54 EST HELP ME FIND IT! I am sooo frustrated with trying to locate the foods I eat on the nutrition tracker search engine! I HAVE to believe it is my own stupidity, but I'm about to give it up. When I can't find something, I have to end up putting an item together, which is VERY time consuming, so that it will track my calories, carbs, fats, and protein. THIS TIME it is a ham and cheese sandwich on white bread that has me stumped. When I look up ham and cheese, I get all kinds of fast food stuff, but only one sa... Fri, 27 Feb 2015 18:05:25 EST Add the weight loss/inches tracker I've seen that people have something on their posts that tracks inches lost or weight. How do I get that?

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 01:00:06 EST Anybody getting a malicious "taggit' message For two days running my malware bytes has blocked a malicious "taggit"virus when I am on Spark People doing my tracking and posting. Curious if anyone else is getting this. So far I think I am only getting this when I am on this site. Fri, 27 Feb 2015 00:05:25 EST Can't see part of today's top story<BR>s_articles.asp?id=1113&page=2 <BR> <BR> As you can see, the women's results chart is partly blocked by a picture advertising the very tests we're trying to do. There have been several comments on the page about this, so it isn't just my computer. Please fix. Thanks! Thu, 26 Feb 2015 18:15:26 EST Same emails as yesterday Okay, you guys got the emails sent out yesterday late---know things happen---but today I got the same emails as I got yesterday for recipe and exercise---not sure about any others being the same but know those 2 were the same---what gives?

What's up? Thu, 26 Feb 2015 08:22:23 EST Move a Message if posted in wrong forum? Is there a way to move a message if I put it in the wrong forum? Apparently when I clicked on the Fitness forum when I meant to post in the Nutrition forum.

When I click on the link (in Safari) to my homepage it goes to a mobile page and I can't locate a place to update my status on it. Wed, 25 Feb 2015 22:35:51 EST Please stop prompting to confirm every deletion I think it would be better if when I click a red 'x' in the UI, the item just goes away. If I delete an item by accident, it's no biggie, I can add just it back. But when I want to delete 10 items because I accidentally added a grouping or something, I have to go back and forth to that infernal pop-up dialog box that asks if I'm sure. <BR> <BR> It's a bit of overkill to test whether I'm sure for this scenario. 99% of the time, it's on purpose and doesn't need me to confirm it. <BR> <BR> Th... Wed, 25 Feb 2015 17:52:08 EST Usability issues SparkPeople is great for one person, but works very poorly for families. There should be a way to link accounts, so that all the groupings and favourites are automatically sync'ed. At the very least one should be able to import that stuff manually (though that's a drag), but even that option seems impossible anymore (all the tech help I see for this seems to apply to an outdated version of the website). Sad, because I had high hopes for SP, but it may be impossible for us to use as a family. ...

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 11:22:02 EST Help! The delete grouping feature is NOT working!! I made a food grouping and messed up. I clicked edit, and selected delete food grouping. Thought it worked so I made another one, named it the same and not only is the first one still there now I have 2 and both are empty. The delete grouping feature is not working. Now when I click on edit, the delete option is not there anymore and nothing is inside either groupings. A message pops up that says: INFORMATION WAS NOT PASSED CORRECTLY. How do I go about deleting both groupings completely?...

When I go to edit it, it is the normal range not the new (and generally greatly increased) calorie range. I'm not losing weight at an abnormally fast rate, so that can't be the reason. Does it change based on exercise amount? Also, if it's changing in my tracker, shouldn't it be changing in the goal section, as well? Just a bit confused as to why this occurs. Is it just a change for that day, telling me to eat more bc I e... Sun, 22 Feb 2015 22:34:31 EST Ticker I've changed my ticker but it's not popping up. The box is checked to have it display.
