Thank you spark Merle.

It just that I really hate to see what I weighed so long ago. It's a bad reminder. I would prefer, if possible, to only see my weight for the last few months.

Maybe I'll start a new Spark Page, just so I have a new 'start' weight?

Hello,

Yes, you have it. Sorry I did not understand that you wanted to permanently change the default start date on the report. I thought you were asking how to change for that instance of running it. Once you go through the steps you outline, if you click the Run Report button, you will get that report for the new dates you selected. However, it will revert back to the original dates the next time you come to that page (as you said). There is not a way to permanently change the dates for future use. I can turn that in as a suggestion to consider for a future system change though.

Honestly, I am not sure exactly how that default date is chosen. I see some members where it is the same as the date they started SparkPeople; but, mine is an entirely different date. LOL

spark Merle,
I believe you. But the fact is I can not change my start date. These are the steps I take, so correct me if there's something I'm missing. I go to:

1. My Trackers
2. My Weight
3. Run Report
4. In the green box where it says, "change start day" I use the calendar, I click on the word "close"..............and my new desired date is there.............until I leave the page and go back. Then it reverts to the original date.

Hello,

I just want to let you know, that member you mentioned is incorrect. You really can change the start date using those instructions. I tried it on your account just to be sure there was not something unusual happening on your account; but, it worked. However, if you found a way to track and report on your weight that is easier for you, then that's good too.

Have a good day!

~ Merle

Thanks, but no it didn't help.

Another member said start date can't be changed. And, thanks for the idea, but I won't be changing my browsing to use this feature.

I just use another popular website to log weight

I'm not sure where you read that the start date cannot be changed. But, the good news is that you CAN change it! Here's how:

When you go to your report and click on the Change Start Date, you can use the arrows to move backwards or forwards through the months as needed. When you get to the month you want, you have to click on a date within that month for when you want the report to start -- I think this is the part that some members forget to do -- if you don't click on a date, then the report dates will not change. Now click on the Close button (on the calendar window). Change the end date through the same process if needed, then click on Run Report.

If you do the above and your selected start date is not used, you may want to try using a different browser.

I hope this helps!

Under "WEIGHT OVER TIME" I'm unable to change my start date. I assume it's now the date I joined. Read another post and evidently it can't be change. But why the words to the right, "change start date" if you actually can't change it?

So......creating ANOTHER Spark page with a new identify seems to me to be the only way around this, unless someone else has a better idea. I have all my fav foods here so would continue to use this page for logging.

Or, I use another website to log weight?

thanks
