Spark DOES already have everything there in my trackers (under health tracking), I just needed to set it up!.. I was able to easily configure it to record both my systolic and diastolic values as well as my resting heart rate which is exactly what I need...

Thanks everyone for pointing me to right place.

Good luck to everyone in meeting your goals. This newbie is well on her way...

So glad to hear you are using the new quick tracking on your start page to help you reach your goals! If you have more detailed tracking needs, we have other tools to help you with that. Members using the diabetes program find a place on their nutrition tracker to record blood sugars before meals. If more details blood sugar tracking, blood pressure tracking or other detailed tracking -- use the tracking on the weight and other tracking page. You can easily get to that page by putting your mouse on the MY TRACKERS section on the top orange bar. Then select MY WEIGHT from the drop down. Although we provide a default set of body measurements to track your progress on this page, you can add or change what you measure by clicking the "Add/Change" button. You can add what you need and don't find under CUSTOM MEASUREMENTS at the bottom. Information on this page is private. You can use the REPORTS page to find and print off information to take with you when you visit your medical provider as well.

Please let me know if there is still information you need to track and have difficulty finding the place to do it.

You can print all of your reports and take them to your Dr.
You can find all of this from the Start page.
It is a big site but you have to look around and ask people . I started with no computer. Our son gave me an old one.Spark friends helped me all along the way.
I never typed and it shows. Spellcheck does not do a very good job.

I agree that we have to be careful with our information, these days, but you know what? I'm in the mind set, that if what I do or don't show on SP encourages, uplifts, edifies, or just starts some out on their journey, I'll do it in a heart beat, because of the way God has blessed me, and I want to pass that blessing on!!!

YOU dod not have to have a weight ticker out there.This can be totally private. If you are too private you get much less support.
I am 70 years young and I love how my health has improved with this site. I do not use any other social media m NO FB, None of them this site is great and you can make your page Private.
.YOU can track your conditions on your personal page. I track my weight , Blood sugar it is all there in the start page.

I can track all f my food and NUTRIENTS I know how much Sodium, calcium, potassium Spark gave me my calorie needs after I input but You can keep EVERYTHING private by setting up your page.
I am not the most computer literate but try to find the tutorials. Other wise try Technical help on the message boards thread. It is all there and I depend on it daily 50 pounds lost, I came to this site on medication for BP, Diabetes type 2, cholesterol and sound nutrition, I have it all and I love it I hope you can find it .
Use Spark web search on your Spark points menu. Pat in Maine emoticon

You are right to be concerned with availability of personal information and privacy in general.
I wouldn't want my blood pressure being displayed like the weight ticker is...

I was thinking more along the lines of something more for your own personal tracking (like the amount of water tracker on the start screen)... or even something you could download/print (the reading and date) and take with you when you visit the doctor.

Thanks for your comment ;)

There are sites that track everything. Social media isn't always the best to be tracking some things. Just be careful emoticon

I know that we can track up to 6 customized goals.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could customize the range of goal tracker numbers to suit our medical conditions (so that it isn't a 1-10 range necessarily, but could actualy track our systolic 80 -200 and diastolic readings 60 - 200) . It would be great if we could specifically count mg of sodium or perhaps blood sugar (if you are diabetic). I guess I'm looking for a way to also customize the range. May this exists on the spark site already and I don't know how to do it. If it doesn't, maybe we can petition the site somehow to build it in...?
