Tue, 30 Sep 2014 15:54:07 EST Adjusting Calories & Carbs Hi I am a diabetic and I have been told by my doctor to try to eat 1850 calories and 65-75 carbs for the day. I am wondering how to change the carbs. I found the spot to change the calories and changed those and then switched the item from calories to carbs and set the carb numbers to the desired range but when I saved it, it changed my calories to the carb numbers instead. Is there something else I can do or something I am doing wrong? Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:29:53 EST Can't access my recipes on my phone Who else has this problem?

I see my friend's weight loss on their Activity feed but in looking at mine, nothing for the past two months. Any ideas?

Perhaps less ads or more power would be the answer. I've been at this for month and still dread the prospect of recording because of the time it takes to create recipes, add items and use the tools available. <BR> <BR> No other site that I frequent is this slow! <BR> <BR> Dan Mon, 29 Sep 2014 12:27:38 EST Calories changed with loss of weight I lost weight and I was expecting my Calorie goal to change but it looks like it went UP not down.

The Fitbit tracks mileage while the Bodymedia doesn't. However, I think the Bodymedia tracks calorie consumption more accurately. <BR> <BR> It appears to be possible to sync Sparkpeople with both trackers. Would that end up with calories and steps being over reported? If so, and I opt to link with the Bodymedia tracker only, what would be the best way of logging distance covered without over reporting calories?

When I first started, the calorie range (not counting exercise) I was give was 1500 to 1850 calories. I noticed last week that my base range was increased to 1650-2000. I was just wonder what's up with that. <BR> <BR> Also, I was given a fitness goal of 180 minutes per week. I recently changed that goal to 240 a week, could that have triggered a change in my calorie range?

Is that because the program asked me to choose the activity that I had done? <BR> Thu, 18 Sep 2014 22:55:02 EST Tracker fell apart. During a walk in the city and quickly trying to cross the busy traffic my tracker fell off my waist and ended up on the pavement. Lucky I was able to get it before it and myself got run over from moving city traffic. I scooped it up and quickly put it back together. Since then it has been running wonky and doesn't want to stay tightly shut. I taped it up and my step counts are so low in comparison to my other omron pedometer I was using before I got my spark tracker. <BR> <BR> Thu, 18 Sep 2014 22:19:59 EST Can You View Your Food Tracker from Years Ago?

But obviously I am not going to click on the "previous day" button (or whatever it's called) a few thousand times in a row to do so. Is there a way to...

I was trying to follow the Diabetes numbers but modified because my nurse practitioner told me to have no more than 1000 cals a day or with my low metabolism I would not lose weight.

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 17:13:47 EST Fitness Tracking Question I have noticed the fitness tracker does not calculate calories properly. If I put in a weight lifting activity, like bicep curls, wrist/ankle weights, etc., it will determine my calories expended based on the duration of the workout, but it does not change for the weight, reps or sets. Why? If I do bicep curls for one minute with 5 pounds, do I really burn as many calories as if I did it for one minute with 50 pounds? If I do 10 reps in one minute with 5 pounds, do I really burn the same amou...

Fri, 5 Sep 2014 12:02:30 EST favorites how do i access my favorites/saved articles, and also my saved recipes?? ..i am tired of searching all over for them and only finding them ever by accident, and then you change the pages all the time and i can't find them again .. thank you maybe you should have a link to them in a very obvious spot on the start page .. or under one of the tabs .. cause if it is there it sure never is on my page .. LOL Fri, 5 Sep 2014 11:35:38 EST Dongle for Tracker not Working Hello All, <BR> <BR> The dongle on my tracker seems to have given up on me, won't light up/sync. I've run all the checks from the FAQs and double checked all the ports are working, but no luck. Anyone else have this problem? Fri, 5 Sep 2014 00:33:58 EST Sparks honors guarantee on tracker Recently I had problems when I changed the battery in my tracker. It leaked at water aerobics and stopped working.

I've looked all over, but can not find how to set my weeks to run from Thursday - Wednesday. I want to be able to see my fitness points to coincide with a different week structure. (Hope this makes sense). Do I have to reset my profile? Thu, 4 Sep 2014 12:43:14 EST Ad preventing Daily Bonus Spin! Help please. I've got a resistant Horizant ad that will not let me get to my Daily Sparkpoints Bonus Spin. Yes, I have a popup blocker which does not stop this. I've tried waiting it out. Clicking on it. Refreshing the page. Opening the page anew. Nothing helps. <BR> <BR> I understand we need sponsor ads to keep the site free but it's ridiculous when the ads prevent you from actually using and enjoying the site. I want my Daily bonus spin. <BR> <BR> Thanks! Thu, 4 Sep 2014 12:07:33 EST I want to track/streak days not weeks but...... I want to be able to keep track of a minutes a day streak in days not weeks. My trackers and streaks page seems to only want me to keep track of weeks. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to track/streak days and not weeks? I want to keep track of doing ten minutes of fitness a day and it only does it in weeks. Advise please! Thu, 4 Sep 2014 11:20:30 EST tracker not syncing The last time my tracker minutes synced to the site was on 8/31.

The "Daily SparkPoints Daily Spin" wheel was popping up when I changed Spark pages after I reached 25 points... BUT, since the 1st of the September, it has not happened automatically...

The new mobile app allows for Fitbit, Jawbone Up, or RunKeeper app to feed your step data into your SparkPeople account from your mobile phone. Does this mean that it does not allow the Spark Tracker to sync? Any assistance would be much appreciated! Tue, 2 Sep 2014 19:29:55 EST Is there a problem with the Bonus Wheel? I spin the Bonus Wheel every day, and I do get the bonus Spark Points, but my Spark Points Page always says that I "did not Spin the Bonus Wheel today" <BR> <BR> This just started showing up a couple of days ago, and I checked back as far as August 1st, and every day is now showing the same message. <BR> <BR> I do appear to be getting the points, but am wondering why I get that message? Tue, 2 Sep 2014 15:11:10 EST user comments and reviews on recipes This is just a suggestion on the reviews on sparkpeople recipes, the first review is always listed first instead of the latest review. The reason this is a problem on many recipes is because they have obviously undergone a revision but the reviews reflect the original recipe.

Just wanted to let you know: I didn't do anything different today when getting to Spark People. BUT the tracking on the Start page for healthy habits IS WORKING! Isn't that silly how something so little can make a difference in the outlook for the whole day.

It happens every time since yesterday. Anyone else experiencing this problem? I can go online to Spark and do whatever I need without incident. Just can't open the emails or get the email points. <BR> <BR> When I post a blog and get an email notice about replies, they come through just fine.

But a lot of the things I eat are recipes that I made. So in order to get the nutritional information I thought I had to enter the recipe into the Recipe Maker. But it wants me to save and share the recipe and type in all the info on how to make it. I don't need all that nor do I need to share the recipe. I just wanted to track the nutritional value of what I ate. How do I go about doing this? Fri, 29 Aug 2014 17:08:27 EST How do I find my "favorites" list? We used to be able to save things as "favorites" and now I see we still can but I had no idea we could do this. This should be on our page or the Start page. <BR> <BR> I see the previous answer as to how we can still do that for a new article <BR> but when I click out of it how do I find it again without going on to save something else?

We hope this can change! It would be so much more convenient!

Thank you. Sat, 23 Aug 2014 21:37:40 EST finding videos My husband saw a video yesterday and told me about it but I don't know how to find it. It was about a cafe in Canada? that makes you "sign" your order. I am deaf and wanted to see it but where do I look? Sat, 23 Aug 2014 18:26:59 EST exercise videos won't stay on. I get the exercise videos on youtube fine but every time I try a spark people video, It stops after just a couple of min and a circle keeps going around and it never comes back on. It has been like this for a very long time. I gave up for months then tried again today after doing youtube videos and the same thing happens. help Sat, 23 Aug 2014 16:26:08 EST Instructions for setting up a Spark Page I thought there used to be a link from one of the drop down menus that gives instructions on setting up a Spark Page. I can't seem to locate that now. I'd like to send it to a new member. What am I missing...or did I dream that? Thanks in advance. Sat, 23 Aug 2014 14:29:50 EST Change Fitness Setup I recently increased the number of days that I work out and have added strength training to my fitness schedule. I have looked everywhere it seems, and I can't find where I can change days/minutes/cardio or strength planned on my fitness tracker. Where can I edit this information? Sat, 23 Aug 2014 14:20:02 EST Starting over How do I delete old weight/measurements and start over? Sat, 23 Aug 2014 10:33:24 EST FitBit issues. Ever since I linked my SP and fitbit account, I noticed that the spark people account shows more minutes than my fitbit account.for example I walked for 118 minutes today... However, when my fitbit flex syncs to SP it shows 148 thereby causing my calories to be off. I have to chance the minutes manually and guess at the calories. This can't be good. Sat, 23 Aug 2014 00:41:23 EST unable to go to "edit my spark page" Hello, <BR> I'm enjoying free access to this resource! <BR> I am wanting to share my tracker. So, I found instructions on your site to go to "Start" and go to the "community" step. From there, I should click "My page." Well, the link is deactivated and there is no where to click... <BR> is there another way to get into "My page?" Or is that link just under construction..? <BR> <BR> Thanks! <BR> -Shay Sat, 23 Aug 2014 00:33:40 EST SparkMail Outbox I sent a reply to an iquiry via SparkMail.

Can I get another one? Or do I have to purchase a whole new one? I tore through my whole vacuum cleaner bag YUK!

This is happening a lot and it does not help to have videos for the members to watch and then they are not able to watch them I have a screen pic. Thu, 21 Aug 2014 23:00:14 EST Many Favorites marked "not able to be shared" I have many favorites of which are older entries. While I can add new favorites and share them, all older ones all say "not able to be shared". They do not seem to be out in the shared area when I search for them. Can you tell me why? Thank you. Thu, 21 Aug 2014 13:04:01 EST Points for reading Articles I've noticed since the redesign of Articles and Videos pages that I can read the same article over and over again (I just did that, read the same one 5 times in a row) and get points for each time I read it. Is this how the new layout works? It used to be that you would get 3 points per each one read, but no points for re-reading it. Is this a bug? <BR> <BR> OK...picky maybe but PA/QA is what I do for a living so things like this stand out to me. <em>334</em> <BR> <BR> Using Firefox 31.0 Thu, 21 Aug 2014 12:01:09 EST Help checked to quickly ( excited lol ) help when I set up my choices on SP I checked vegetarian instead of Vegan and now i can't figure out how to change it Wed, 20 Aug 2014 20:02:01 EST How to track "more tracking" goals?

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 19:42:29 EST Can't update my personal information and signature I went in earlier and updated my personal information and signature on my spark page to reflect the mileage I have walked.

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 13:40:09 EST Tracking Cycling I cycled this morning for 20 minutes (sorry, tracker said it was only 19) and rode somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 miles. I have no odometer on my bike, but did the 1 mile walking route, plus took many side streets and added another 5 blocks to and fro to extend it even more. The tracker said I'd only gone .31 miles. So it obvioiusly didn't track how hard I was pedaling. How do I change the milage to make it more accurate?
