Check Out SparkPeople's New Challenges and Start Page!

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Hi, Everyone! 
This morning, we rolled out a new version of our member Challenges feature, which is available from both your Start page and the Challenge Central dropdown in our Community header. (If you remember, we gave you a sneak peek about a month ago.) We are very excited about this new Challenge format! We took what members loved most about our older challenges--including daily and weekly guidance on working toward a particular goal--and added in an easier-to-use interface, plus new features like a Team Wall. You can take any of the following Challenges to start with (we will be adding plenty more after launch!): 

The 28-Day Home Workout Challenge
The 30-Day Plateau-Busting Challenge
The Diabetes Weight-Loss Challenge
The 21-Day New Member Challenge
The Fit Food Challenge
The Find 10 Challenge
The Walk This Way Challenge
The 30-Day Small Changes Challenge
The 30-Day Skinny Jeans Challenge
The 21-Day Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge

While we're talking about changes, we also wanted to let you know that we launched a slightly redesigned Start page to go along with our new Challenges feature. The biggest change is that we are now featuring your Challenges on the Start page. We think Challenges are a great way to reach a variety of goals, so we wanted to make them easy to access. You’ll also notice we changed the goals and tracking section on the upper left, making it easier to get to your main tools each day. We also added a new SparkPoints monthly goal, and in September, we will start offering fun prizes that you could win if you meet your goal! Note that we moved the Goal Board and Track Other Goals section to the bottom of Step 2--not many members were using these, but we wanted to keep them handy.
