thanks....

I guess by doing that I would lose all the info I have tracked!!! So, I'm going to leave everything as is. emoticon

On your start page there is small link to email/account preferences. On that page there is an option to reset, and then you would choose the non-weightloss part of the site.

There are two parts to the Sparkpeople program, although both use the same site. The one most of you are familiar with is the weight loss program. If you remember when you first signed up for Sparkpeople, it asked you to choose whether you wanted to lose weight or not. If you choose not to lose weight, you will be using the Spark 5 program. It is named for the 5 healthy habits that make up the healthy lifestyle. Everything on the Spark 5 program is exactly the same, except that you do not have diet goals to lose weight. You can still track food and exercise, but there is nowhere to enter a goal weight and have it give you a calorie range for losing. You can switch back and forth between the two and keep all your Sparkpoints and foods you entered, but you lose tracking you may have done.

I reset mine, it reset my intakes as far as carbs and fats, which is great cause I've been eating "extra" to meet my carbs. So you NEED to reset your stats after every 10 pounds you lose!

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some are bright, some have weird names, but they all live together quite nicely in the same box!

Cool. You'll probably be happier without the peaks and valleys in your data. Plus the ugly reminder of how slack you were previously. :)

I've got 1 week in the beginning while I was learning to use the tools and become comfortable with them I am leaving there cause it didn't seem to impact much for how I use the tools overall.

Good luck on staying on top of that tracking! It can be challenging.

Thank you! I had not been consistantly tracking stuff even though I was doing it. So I needed a fresh start. I just wanted to make sure I wouldn't lose stuff I didn't want to lose.

God Bless!

The original post is talking about a complete reset of the program in the email/account preferences, as opposed to changing diet goals. The reset can be done with teh regular program, or to switch to Spark 5 , which is the same site except not set up to lose weight, just for healthy lifestyle. I switched to Spark 5 after I reached my goal.

You don't lose anything by just resetting the current weight, goal weight and date to lose it by. At least I didn't.

If you do a reset you keep your Sparkpoints and all the favorites you have entered, but you lose the tracking you have previously done.

I noticed we have an area under our account preferences to "reset" our goals. It says it keeps foods and favorites but erases everything else. Has anyone done this? If so did it erase your trophy and fitness minutes?? I read an articles that suggested doing it to revamp your routine, but there are some things I don't want to lose.

God Bless!
