New weight ticker option - shows weight goal vs. current/start weight

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

We launched an enhancement to our weight loss tickers today where you now have the option to not show your actual weight, but instead your goal. If you go to Edit SparkPage and to your ticker section, you will see 2 options:

1 - Show my starting weight, goal weight, and current weight (example starting 180, goal 160, current weight 170)
2 - Show my total pounds to lose and pounds lost (example starting 0, goal 20, pounds lost 10)

So basically option 1 used to be the only option (and if you make no changes how your ticker will appear), and you can now change to option 2 if you'd like.

This change was based on feedback from members who preferred not to share their actual weight but still wanted to share in their progress and success.

    I like this idea of not having to show your weight. It is bad enough when the nurse at the doctor's office loudly announces your weight to anyone in ear shot.
