Found out about the Skinny Jeans Plan from the facebook page this weekend. A window pops up but is blank. I've tried on multiple computers and multiple browsers. I've changed settings allowing for pop ups as well as special permissions from Sparkpeople.
PLEASE FIX! Lots of people want to join.

Seek and you will find! I am having the same issues. Thought it was just my computer, but I came to work and can't access skinny jean links here either. Totally bummed!

Hope it gets fixed soon! Thank you Spark Staff for all you do!

I do not believe he has anything to do with "ad blocker" personally. None of the links work. When you click on any calendar day, you get a blank pop up.

So great to hear that this is an SP tech difficulty. I was getting frustrated that I was getting the blank screen when before I had no problem. Hopefully SP will resolve soon!

SOOZEE I definitly agree with you. It's a Spark problem. It has worked with no problems for me up until yesterday 11/16 and just a blank white page on the daily challenge now. I was on day 20 yesterday and the first 19 days worked fine. None of the days will work now including the days I've already done and I've changed nothing to my computer. It isn't anything I've done. I would really love to continue doing it. Someone please fix the problem!

I have AdBlock which I have to disable for the 30 day challenges, then enable again. No probs except that I too get only a blank popup on the Skinny challenge yesterday and today. The food challenge, no problem.

The most painful state of being is remembering the future.

Hi, As you all have said, my daily tasks for the skinny jeans challenge plan was working fine until yesterday, 11/16 but is not working now. I've tried it with both Internet Explorer and Firefox, have no ad blockers, and SparkPeople.com is an exception to my no pop-ups rule. However, the tasks for the 30-Day Fit Food Challenge are still working normally. It must be a SparkPeople problem. Do you agree?

The 30-day Fit Food Challenge was working, but the Skinny Jeans site--tried it two different times--is still out. Still only getting the empty page with the X to close it out.
Thanks in advance for checking for a possible glitch on that challenge page.

Had no problem with Skinny Jeans Challenge until today but downloaded my page for today and found when I clicked on it, I got nothing but an empty page with an x to close it out. So I tried on the computer I had been using prior to this week,but that one also loaded a blank. How can I complete the challenge without my day #27? I can't do a 30 day challenge without having 30 days in it. Also, I notice on the calendar that some of the days do not have checks on them. I have faithfully downloaded each day and followed each day's activities or information. Did I forget to click a "save" somewhere along the way? And how do I correct those omissions?

The program was working great on all my devices until last night when I get a blank screen when you click on the day you are on. Does anyone know how to get rid of this? I cannot begin to tell you how angry I am about this. I have tried everything I can think of to get rid of the "ad.doubleclick.net."

Hi,

Did you try disabling any adblockers you have installed? Those will interfere with the challenge working properly.

I tried also and just kept getting a blank pop up window with an 'x' in the upper right hand corner. I'm going to try more of the links. I like 'small' challenges. This one seems perfect. I seem to be stuck at 136 pounds for my 'maintenance' weight. I would love to get to around 130 and am hoping this will help. Doesn't help I'm fighting a cold at this minute.

Like I mentioned before, the old way of setting up a challenge (example: January Jumpstart Challenge) worked just fine. It was easier to access, to set things up to get your email notifications and to track your fitness minutes. Can't do that with this new way that it's set up.

Is there any way this challenge can be set up the old way?

I tried signing up for the email for this challenge using FireFox. I get a blank screen when I click on the email sign up link, the Start your plan link, and the links in the Calendar. I don't have a problem with links in other pages on SparkPeople and I've been on the site since 2009. I have to agree with the previous poster that it's not worth going to the hassle of disabling add-ons etc. to access the challenge.

I will pass your feedback along.

Did you try disabling all your extensions and then enabling them one by one to determine what extension is causing the problem? If it isn't something you use frequently, you could always leave that specific extension disabled for the duration of the challenge. Otherwise, like you mentioned, you can use another browser to view the page.

The good news: I got my first challenge emailed to me today!

The bad news:
However, I opened the email using my Chrome browser. The problem now is, I couldn't see today's challenge! In order for the challenge to open up, I had to disable the extension...again! If I have to do this every day using Chrome, this will be more hassle than it's worth. I've wasted so much time and energy on trying to figure this out, that I'm already tired of it.

So, in order to do this challenge, I will need to keep the extensions in Chrome disabled or pick up my challenges using Internet Explorer but I don't have IE8. So, back to square one...nowhere! The only unexpected challenge I got from this experience is learning more about my computer...not a fitness challenge. emoticon emoticon

I did as you said. I disabled an extension while on the Chrome browser and tried again to start up the challenge...and it worked!!! Imagine my surprise. emoticon emoticon

I saw the "Start your plan" button, clicked on it to enter my email address. After that, I re-enabled that extension I disabled.
So, now I wait to receive my first challenge...hopefully tomorrow.

I use chrome and I was able to see that challenge without an issue. Perhaps you have another extension installed that is interfering? You might want to try disabling all of them temporarily to see if that helps, and if it does, you can enable them 1 by 1 to determine what might be causing the problem.

My default browser is Chrome. I disabled the adblockers and even allowed pop-ups on this browser but doing this still would not allow me to start the plan or enter my email.

I finally tried using Internet Explorer. I was finally able to see the blue "Start Your Plan" bar and was able to enter my email address to get the daily challenges. Hoping I will get my first challenge by tomorrow as I did not get the first day challenge right away.

Guess Chrome is not the browser to use for this.

Anne -

Just asking, but how was this challenge set up differently from the previous challenges, like the Official January Jumpstart Fitness Challenge, such that you need to disable adblockers and whatever else just to be able to access it?

The old way of setting up a challenge worked fine. It was easier to access, to set things up to get your email notifications and to track your fitness minutes. Can't do that with this new way that it's set up.

Is there any way this challenge can be set up the old way?

ok, I too put my email in but never rec'd an email about the challenge??? I joined yesterday and completed the four butt workouts. Today I checked in and read up on the 30 min cardio. I received five points for each day for checking in but I feel like there should be a challenge forum or something to comment on. A community working together to keep us on track?? I feel like a signed in wrong and I'm missing something??

I had to click on the pop up and put in my email info and got an email the next day. My problem is there is no way to track the exercises in the fitness portion of my trackers (they have no "donkey kick" which is one of the exercises). Good luck

I heard about the Skinny Jeans challenge. Have tried different ways to access or start in on this challenge but have been unsuccessful. I thought it would be set up like the other 28-day challenges (example: Official January Jumpstart Fitness Challenge). But it's not.

I tried going to the Spark Points page, scrolled down to the Daily SparkPoint Challenges section, scrolled down to the last line in this section where it says "Complete Daily Tasks for the 30-Day Skinny Jeans Challenge" I clicked on the red link "Take the Challenge".
I then see a page that has a girl sitting on a park bench backwards with her legs over the top back of the bench and a banner that says "Countdown to Skinny Jeans A 30 Day Plan Get daily workout and nutrition challenges t look and feel your best in just one month. Earn 5 Sparkpoints for each daily challenge you complete."

I could not find a link to click on to get the daily workouts or nutrition challenges.
I've heard there's supposed to be a blue "Start your plan" blue link to click on but I'm not seeing it.

Below this banner, the page is completely white and blank....unless I scroll all the way to the bottom. There I found something that looks like Pinterest boxes. But I don't have a Pinterest account. Do you need a Pinterest account to get these daily workouts or nutrition challenges?

Can someone please help me find a way to start this plan?
