The proof is that it's no longer listed there. A few days later I used the calculator for a similar recipe which is, as it should be, still in My Recipe Box. I gave each a different name so that I wouldn't get confused. <BR> <BR> Here's the mystery part: While entering today's menu in the tracker, I found the older/deleted recipe showing up in the Recent drop-dow... Sun, 4 Dec 2016 12:16:49 EST "Finished and Run Nutrition Report" popup Why on earth is the popup offering to run the nutrition report coming up every single time I add a food?! I've only just finished adding lunch and it's already asking me if I've finished adding foods for the day and if I want the nutrition report. No, I don't. That should be clear from the fact that I've only entered Breakfast and Lunch, apart from anything else! <BR> And if I say "No", it just asks me again as soon as I enter another food. Even if I click on "Don't Ever Show Me This Again", ... Sun, 4 Dec 2016 11:33:29 EST Need Help: Group Adds in Triplicate I have created a group. I tried adding it to my tracker for today.

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 04:54:32 EST Spark tracker I have tried to stop the pop up that says it can't find my tracker for quite some time now, when you go into programs there is nothing listed there that I can delete or remove from my computer, I have been disconnected from SP for well over a couple of years, but there continues to be a popup that says my dongle is not connected, why is it even looking for it still? There is no shortcut to the spark tracker, no program in the programs and features for me to delete, how do I get rid of it?

However, I can't find how to get that information. I don't use the food or fitness trackers here. I prefer the setup I was already comfortable with that links my food diary to my Garmin for exercise. I don't mind filling out some information though. I just can't find where to go/what to do to get a recommendation.

If I enter all these same ingredients in the grouping "my egg sandwiches", I get only one point. Any way around this so I can keep the convenience of a grouping and still get my points? If I enter three meals and a snack per day as groupings, I only get four points instead of fifteen? <BR> <BR> ...

I have an 1Phone 6 recently upgraded to IOS 10 and some of your material is not displaying properly in mail. <BR> <BR> Team notifications are too small, with blank space around them. <BR> <BR> the daily Spark is really tiny and off to one side. <BR> <BR> Am I the only one experiencing this? <BR> <BR> Let me know if you want some screenshots. Fri, 16 Sep 2016 12:48:28 EST Restarting, need help changing my weight report. My weight report was set up in February and I was able to change my start date to today, but I couldn't see how to change my end date, it wouldn't let me click the button. I would like to reset it all, is this possible? Thu, 15 Sep 2016 10:50:46 EST Sparktv I have tried to get several exercise videos to play today, but I was unsuccessful. Several weeks ago, I signed up for bootcamp challenge and I only did 2 videos, but I did not see where I could claim my 3 points. I was able to watch Hearty Soups today, but there was not a button for me to claim my points. I only have an iPad. <BR> ***It seems that I can use Coach Nicole's video, but none of the other fitness videos. I just tried to watch one of Coach Nicole's videos, and it would not work... Wed, 14 Sep 2016 21:31:24 EST Editing weight goal on iPad When I click on "edit goals", then click on "weight", the only thing that happens is that the program switches from "full tracking" to "quick tracking". The place to edit my weight goal never opens. <BR> <BR> Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. Thank you. Wed, 14 Sep 2016 20:48:52 EST Unable to uncheck notifications Hi I recently joined the 5% fall challenge. Initially, I kept the box "email me when anyone comments on this post" so I could follow what was happening. However, I am getting flooded with emails so have gone back several times to "uncheck" this box, but it won't stay unchecked. I have contacted the team leader but feel this is most likely a technical issue. Please advise - my inbox is flooded with emails that aren't necessary to the challenge. It hasn't even started yet! <BR> <BR> <BR> Wed, 14 Sep 2016 17:33:09 EST Spark Premium Site What am I doing wrong? I have tried to pay the $29.99 several times. Google will not accept a prepaid card. I cannot get it run thru PayPal either. Call me paranoid but I am not giving my credit card info to Google to store. Is there any other way? Wed, 14 Sep 2016 16:07:06 EST Mobile App Constantly Opens the App Store I'm getting served an ad on the App that's opening an internet tab and forcing the play store to open up to some game. <BR> <BR> I can't do anything on the mobile app anymore, not even if I wanted to buy premium. <BR> <BR> Help?

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 18:10:51 EST Fitbit Overestimating Calories I have my FitBit set up to sync with Sparkpeople. The problem is that the number Fitbit sends over is way too high when you add it to the BMR that Sparkpeople is using. <BR> <BR> Example: <BR> Yesterday, Fitbit sent over 746 calories burned. <BR> Sparkpeople says my BMR is 2100 (set to sedentary). <BR> Total Calories Burned = 2846 <BR> Fitbit says my total burned for yesterday is only 2442. <BR> Difference = 404 calories <BR> <BR> Is there a way to manipulate the settings in Sparkpeople ...

I'm curious to see what my stats are to-date (month and lifetime) without waiting for the email that tells me I earned a trophy. <BR> <BR> Did I dream that, or is it hidden somewhere? Thanks for your help, folks! <BR> <BR> Make today great! <BR> <BR> Beth Mon, 12 Sep 2016 08:55:10 EST SparkPeople Team Digests The weekly e-mail Team Digests have a new look and at the bottom of the email is a "Get Your SparkPoints" tab. I did click on it on my first digest and did get a point, however, did not get the point for the other email team digests when I clicked on the tab?? Instead I get the reply to each one saying "You have already earned SparkPoints for reading this email." <BR> <BR> Not sure what is happening here. <BR> <BR> Sun, 11 Sep 2016 23:52:19 EST "Status and Friend Feeds" - What is happening here What is happening to the "Status and Friend Feeds" on my Start page? I love checking it to see which friends h"ave blogged, received trophies, posted pictures, etc. <BR> <BR> Tonight when I click on it, my Status shows but instead of friend feeds I am getting a never-ending list of "Suggested Friends".

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 21:42:16 EST Confusing approch to a trivia question One of my questions today asked "Which food NATURALLY contains vitamin D?" <BR> <BR> The answer was "Vitamin D fortified milk". <BR> <BR> What is this? Milk DOES have a bit of inherent vitamin D but so do several other of the choices. <BR> <BR> If you fortify a food product you are ARTIFICIALLY altering it to improve the nutrition profile. It does not just happen 'Naturally". Sun, 11 Sep 2016 19:50:39 EST Mobile use I can not log mileage into the mobile site, and now even when I try to open the .com in the phones browser it defaults to mobile and there is no option to open full web page. Please add the ability to log mileage. Sun, 11 Sep 2016 11:26:44 EST Change to metric Is there any way to track my weight in kg? Doing the conversion myself feels like waste of time and is less likely to get me on the scale. Sun, 11 Sep 2016 04:02:40 EST Samsung Devices Are there any plans to synch any Samsung devices with Spark? I would love to be able to track my progress on something other than my fitbit. Sat, 10 Sep 2016 21:28:16 EST Why is there no synch for Apple iWatch? Are there any plans to include the Apple iWatch as a device we can synch with Spark? I love my watch for tracking fitness, and I sure don't want to buy another device for synching at SP. Thousands of us have them. I think it's time. Thanks! Sat, 10 Sep 2016 21:08:36 EST Credit Card Hacks? just wondering if you have gotten any communications from members who bought Spark Premium about credit card information being stolen. <BR> <BR> I used my card to do this and ended up with thousands of dollars of unauthorized transactions. My Sparkpeople purchase was the only "different" purchase I made this month. <BR> <BR> Please reply. Sat, 10 Sep 2016 20:32:14 EST Question about trivia I played the trivia game this morning.

I have marked a few articles and recipes as favorite using the Save button on them, but I can't find them again later. When I went to my Spark page there was only one recipe listed on the favorites tab, and not the article that I had just marked as a favorite. <BR> <BR> <em>100</em> Fri, 9 Sep 2016 18:23:36 EST suggestion there should be notifications on your homepage for responce posts, notifications for time to eat, excersize or track would be helpful too. <BR> and wheres the spark mail? cant find it except in regular email where i get email notifications ( you know like gmail, yahoo etc) <BR> <BR> i have the box below checked tto send me an email... i have to because this site doesnt have on site notification...why not?

Frustrating. Wed, 7 Sep 2016 08:15:46 EST calorie tracker I've already logged my meals for the day. My total calorie consumed is 1,640 which is what it shows on my food tracker page. But the quick view on my start page shows I've only consumed 1,225 calories with 425 calories remaining. My activity is NOT factored into my calorie budget each day. Why does the calories eaten on my start page not jive with the actual amount eaten shown on my actual nutrition tracker page? Wed, 7 Sep 2016 07:44:19 EST weight tracking when I started the program I entered an incorrect weight, I rounded out the number instead of using the decimal point value of my weight. I now adjusted my start weight, because I was so happy to see that I lost 2 pounds in my first week on the plan. But the change is not reflected on the weight lost icon in the start page. <BR> how can I change that Wed, 7 Sep 2016 01:56:45 EST Serving size options - no 'mls' To the tech team/site managers - <BR> <BR> Hi, would you please please please add millilitres to the drop down list options in serving size when adding a new food.
