It is a great resource. The one suggestion I have is the serving amount. It is missing in the vast majority of recipes, the only way to find out is to make it and then measure it yourself and determine the size of the portion. Most of them just say 4 servings or 8 servings. I would like to see a serving size be a mandatory input, one of the reasons is that sometime I make a recipe and it looks like it is a ... Tue, 30 Jun 2015 02:13:42 EST Why is It Tuesday on SP when it's still Monday? Today is Monday the 29th and the time stamp on Spark People says it's after midnight and so the date is the 30th.

I've been on and off this site for a while, and last time I was here, the fitness page had the option to let Sparkpeople pick a workout that you follow. Is that not an option anymore? I just looked all through the site and can't find it. :-( I do have my fitbit connected to it, but I liked the idea of having sparkpeople tailor a fitness plan for me.

This has probably been asked before but I can't find it. <BR> <BR> I'd like to remove my FitBit from my tracker so I get a truer fitness minutes number. I looked at how to un-synch it and it looks like it'll also un-synch my Aria (FitBit scale) too. Is there an easy way to remove the FitBit but continue synching the Aria scale? <BR> <BR> I guess I can un-synch both and then add only the Aria. Just wondering if there's some other way. <BR> <BR> Thanks! Wed, 20 May 2015 14:54:13 EST SP Trivia questions on a sliding scale? Confess, SP.

It happens all the time, right? <BR> <BR> Example: Yesterday I may have gotten as many as eight questions wrong.

Sun, 3 May 2015 16:11:54 EST PERFECT ATTENDANCE TROPHIES Hello,. <BR> <BR> Recently, I reported that my attendance was not being recorded as a perfect attendance, but instead was being reported as consistent. You then corrected it, for January and February and told me to let you know if it happened again. It happened again for the month of March and I did not report it because I became annoyed that I have to report it every month. Again, for the month of April, I was not awarded the perfect attendance trophy. I decided to let you know this t... Sun, 3 May 2015 02:53:25 EST Share a Recipe or meal with my husband?? Hi - My husband and I are both doing sparkpeople. I frequently cook my own recipes for dinner. They are not particularly new, or interesting. And sometimes it is recipes from another source I add to sparkrecipe to calculate nutrition. <BR> <BR> Per Sparkrecipe T&C, these are not recipes I want to share publicly. But I would like my husband to be able to use the same information when we are both tracking the same meal - why double the work? (especially, since he doesn't have the cook... Sat, 2 May 2015 16:01:16 EST sparkpoints problem before Ok so a while back I posted about the sparkpoints for tracking fitness on facebook did not work . Never got it fixed and I really do want those points. I decided to test everything. I can get points if I share my status. I can get the points for sharing content. If a share fitness I do not receive for that the 1 point it has to be sharing the status to get the 1 point. so I think it is on the spark end not mine like they were saying before. I will share my fitness before my status is why I wa... Sat, 2 May 2015 14:18:39 EST Tracking Fitness Videos <BR> Hi ... this is a lengthy post because of the copying/paste from the Message Board for Fitness & Exercise . In order is my initial question, followed by Coach Jen's response, my follow up post & then a few examples of videos. <BR> <BR> this morning I watched this video on SparkPeople by PopSugar called "The 10-Minute Lazy Day Workout" and ... while there was a button to click on for 3 points for viewing it, there is NOT a way to know how many calories were burned doing it. <BR> <BR> ...

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 10:29:00 EST "Most Recent" Feature I've been on SparkPeople since 2004. I remember there used to be a "Most recent" feature that you could click on, such as your most recent message board post. It saved a lot of save. <BR> <BR> Has that feature moved somewhere that I can't locate, or is it just a thing of the past? I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing it somewhere, as it did often save me several clicks. <BR> <BR> Thanks for SparkPeople, such a great site!!! <BR> <BR> Stephanie Thu, 30 Apr 2015 08:38:29 EST Unsubscribe From Team Emails Is there a way to unsubscribe from team emails?

I was led to this article because it showed up on my Start page, but it looks like all the links in the article are broken, and have been for a bit, judging by the comments. <BR> <BR> Obviously the article itself is a good article, very informative! It might be too trivial to fix the links, but I thought I would bring it to someone's attention in a different manner since commenting on the article doesn't seem to have worked. <BR> <BR> Thank you and have a nice day! <BR> <BR> Edi...

It keeps showing "Earned 0 points from Step 2 today." And when I go to a different page and come back to Start, the circles are back to zero. This happens on Google Chrome. I'm not sure if it happens on other browsers. Sun, 26 Apr 2015 17:03:18 EST alanon I am trying to find teams related to alcohol addiction and especially alanon.

I got a new sparktracker and set t up again with the new dongle. Sometimes the dongle would stop lighting up. I fixed it by starting a new set up again and it worked.

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 ...
