Thank you, @MARGARETYAKODA ! And thank you for looking to report that spammer. We work hard to keep them off SparkPeople, but they do sneak in from time-to-time.

For future reference (in case you didn't find this), almost every post or page has a "Report inappropriate" link on it that you can use to notify us of something that may not belong here. If in the Community Feed, you may need to click on the post itself before the report link displays.

Thanks again!

Not sure about how long it takes for a coach to respond here, but yesterday I spotted a spammer on the community feed. Before I could figure out how to report it, the spammer had vanished. Which beats any other online community response time I have ever seen. And I’m really thankful that SparkPeople has someone keeping watch on such shenanigans.

I realize this response is very late; but, wanted to answer so anyone else checking this thread can see the answer. First, I will be monitoring this team going forward for any new questions that need a SparkPeople response.

Regarding @HARRIET-ROSE 's question about average time for the Premium Coach to respond: Many emails to the Premium Coach are answered within a day. They do not work on weekends though so be sure to keep that in mind when waiting for a reply.

Things that make you go hmmmm...... When was the last time anyone from Spark actually answered a question here?

I checked and no one from Spark actually monitors the team or the questions.

I hope I do this right.
I had the same question years ago.

on your main spark page you will see your name on the left top corner.
Goals and preferences.
click on that.
Under accounts tab , you scroll down to see the Start PAGE. You can choose between the one you have now and the Plan your day one.

Hope that helps.

I have been gone for a while. Tough times. Any road, I've come back and changed my username and went ahead and deleted all my old tracking wanting a bit of a new start...but it's asking me if I want to go with a SparkCoach membership (Free for 2 weeks) or regular. I paid for the lifetime SparkCoach when it started. Did I just lose that by trying to start again? I cannot go back to all those ads, it just eats my time, but if i have to pay more I may just have to say goodbye to SparkPeople. Does anyone know before I click the button???

Tia, I think it moves forward even if we don't get on every day. I don't always get on either but it seems like it is advancing. Linda

My March goals are:

1. Track more (at least 21 days)
2. Lose 2.1 pounds, at least. (I gained weight in February--this has to stop)
3. Continue to exercise 3 to 5 times a week
4. Work on organizing sewing room better.
5. Continue to put together my Grassy Creek tops and get ready to quilt them.
6. Quit mindless snacking.

Thank you for mentioning the free download - I forgot about that one, but I can't find an e-book, either. I signed up on 1/1/17, and have used it ALMOST every day ... my question: can you go back to previous 'lessons' to review? Thanks!

when you sign up for premium SparkPeople SparkCoach is included at no extra charge so I was told.

Ask, and it shall be given to you;
Seek, and you shall find;
Knock, and it shall be opened unto you: Matthew 7:7

Christina, the SparkCoach emails are separate from your SparkMail inbox. They go somewhere entirely different. On your Tracking page, click on "Email A Coach" at the top right of the page. There, you will see the "Email A Coach" page, where your emails are saved, along with any replies. It even says whether or not the email was read yet. You will see in the box above the emails when you last sent a message and the next day that you can send a new one.

Someone asked me this question as a response to my blog about signing up for Premium:

She already pays monthly for Spark Coach, and wonders whether if she signs up for Premium if that's in addition to Spark Coach payment, if it will reduce her Spark Coach payment, or how the pricing structure would work for her?

She says she has submitted the question but so far received no response, so I figured I'd ask it here...

When it says the SparkDiet Program, does it just mean our using Spark in general or is there a specific diet that I'm missing? I love Spark. I've only been using it for a few days and am already noticing a difference in how I feel and my motivation.

Spark coach tells me that I'm on day 8 of my 7day free trial? Are some features free while the program as a whole paid? I'm more than a little confused.

Challenge yourself with something you know you could never do, and what you’ll find is that you can overcome anything.

How does the SparkCoach continue after the free period? I didn't supply a payment method, so I guess they ASK if you want to continue with it?

I'm an off and on participant of Sparkpeople and spark coach. Wish I were a more faithful follower. I notice that at the bottom of this team page, there are no official team goals defined. I kind of like that, because I think everybody has individual goals anyway. But I am wondering if there might be a category where each member could list a particular goal for the day (make it public that way) and then, at the end of the day, be accountable to everyone for it? Perhaps there is, and I just have not discovered it. I think most goals are generally the same from day to day, but small, daily mini goals are different. Or perhaps there is a place on the spark coach page where that happens. Of course, I won't have to ask questions like this if I become a daily, devoted participant, rather than off and on (which is one of the goals in the back of my mind :-)

What provides the fullness you hunger for is not grasping at what's pleasant, or rejecting what isn't, but staying present with whatever is going on. --R. Kabatznick

I am worried that if questions don't get answered in here, how do I know I get any attention if I join SparkCoach after the 7 days free?

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but when I decided to get spark coach after my 7 day trial. I checked the wrong subscription. I wanted the year not the month by month. How can I change it.

Vicki on the program page toward the bottom you will see a box that says previous lessons, I think that may get you to the videos.

I'm struggling and want to re-do some of the early videos but no matter where I click, I only get the weight loss 101 video. I don't want that one, but it's the only one that pops up even though I've tried several different topics. What to do to get these videos open for me?

I paid for the year, so far I really like it. I do have a question, can you find a place and go back to previous coach days to review anything. Thanks.

Same questions over and over but no answers back. How much does it cost after the 7th free day? It concerns me that the lady emailed the coach and never heard back. What is the benefit if there is no coach interaction?

Beet greens, lima beans, swiss chard, sweet potatoes, and regular potatoes are all much better sources of potassium than bananas. I also struggle with getting enough potassium. Recently I heard that Coconut Water is another good source of potassium. I haven't tried it yet though,

I had blood work....I was told to cut down on
saturated fats and sugars. Looking for info on
what I can eat and what to stay away from.
I am doing the diabetic plan. Do they have
another that would be better for me?
Scared...I lost 62 pounds. Thought I was
eating pretty healthy.

Is sweet and low sugar?

Question - I noticed that as I exercise, my calorie range increases. Love the top part of the calorie goal - BUT the bottom part of that range ALSO increases. Do I HAVE to be within the increased calorie range? I know that if I were not on the base calorie range I run the risk of going off my diet and also of my body just depleting my energy. Is the same true of the increased amount?

I am having a TERRIBLE time (1) decreasing my sodium content, (2) increasing my potassium level AND (3) increasing my magnesium level. It is vital that I do so - and not just for my purposes here. To that end I was eating a lot of tomatoes, dark leafy greens, salmon as well as bananas (for potassium level) because my potassium level was giving me a lot of problems medically. I notice that the Spark Diet does NOT use as much of those items - particularly the dark leafy greens and so I do a lot of substitution. Still, according to the nutrient printout - I am seriously deficient in magnesium, potassium and my sodium is way too high (I don't use salt AT ALL). Suggestions?

Thank you.

Hello everyone.
I hope I am in the right place. I have a Spark Activity Tracker that I am in love with! I also use the nutrition section to balance my calories, carbs, fat and protein every day. I don't usually eat from the suggested menu but with the help of Spark it is easy to balance the foods you really love. I use the type2 diabetes program and between my activity tracker, balancing my meals, and my Spark Coaches I have melted away 64.4# over the past 6 months. I am so thankful for all the tools and resources offered here. It is so wonderful when great people are willing to share what they know because they truly want to make a difference. Have a great day! emoticon

I just joined SparkCoach today, and decided to drop by the team forum to get to know some of you. I notice that it says this forum is for the SparkDiet program? Exactly what is this? I'm not on the SparkDiet, but am following a different food plan. I don't know if I'm welcome to join this team or not. emoticon

in the fitness tracker, search, put in chair exercise and it will come up vigorous, and something else. Click on it and it will add to tracker. You have to put how many min. too.

I'm on day 9 of my free 7 day trial, meaning I'm done with it, but the 5 check-ins still come up on my start page. I don't have smart technology, so will not use the other benefits of the paid program, but the daily check in and community stuff is nice to keep on track. Can I continue on here without paying?

Go to start page. in the left corner is an account/email preferences. Click on account. Then click on community. Click on the signature and ticker options and then pick out which ticker you want and the way you want it to look. It is really easy once you get to it.

Hey, I'm bad with figuring things out and would like to know how to get the cute little weight tracker to appear on my pages.

drown by falling in the water, you drown by staying there, so never give up starting each day new, not looking in the rear view mirror!
