Your sparkpage isn't different; it's just your personal page here on Sparkpeople. click on mine for an example. :) You can blog, share pictures (or not) and more. If you share your trackers, we can take a look by going there.
Details for how to set that up can be found here: www.sparkpeople.com/community/help_answer.
When things aren't working, the first place to look is to check your numbers. The most common reason for no weight loss is underestimating calories eaten, and/or overestimating calories burned.
Start measuring and weighing every time... track everything, including drinks, condiments... everything.
As for the HRM, usually they're accurate, but user error or improper setup, or even the HRM itself can be at fault. For yours, are you using a chest strap, or just the wristwatch part? Does it track your age, gender, and weight?
Are you using your HRM during strength training? HRMs aren't helpful for strength training; if you are, that could be part of your problem. HRMs don't accurately estimate the burn for non-aerobic activity... only cardio.
