Now I have a BEGIN photo. I am standing on the roof within the clerestory we are building.
204 pounds. There is a reason I hide within baggy clothes!

I've had issues with both the Spark website. and especially the app, on several occasions. Granted, it's sometimes either the computer (now rebuilt) or our internet provider (don't get me started!). Other times it's it site. Freezing, not saving, timing out very quickly or not at all, other times refusing to acknowledge the day had changed with any selections in the CHALLENGES dropdown menu, even when I'd just signed in, not allowing me to change my photo, etc. With a site this large and complex, I'm sure such issues are just part of the game. I'm not sure where geographically their developers and techs are, but if you report a problem, they do work on it quickly.


As a HEAD'S UP, be aware Spark seems to do system updates and maintenance weekend nights at about 11pm Alaska Time. This has happened Fri, Sat, and Sun nights at various times. That's around 3am Eastern in the USA. Some parts of the site won't work or, if they do work, may not carry your "saved" information forward. I learned this the hard way, by waiting to do my Winter Challenge updates until late evening, then having to explain to my team captains why I had not entered my weight or daily info before midnight!

I usually hide from cameras, in fact, I don't have a picture of me at my biggest - 33 pounds ago - but my son took this for me today for the challenge. I'm looking forward to looking smaller in 8 weeks!

Before photos taken April 7, 2017. I wish I had taken pictures when I first started. I'd love to see what the 25 pounds I've already lost looks like.

It wasn't just Sparks and it wasn't our computers because it affected my bookmark icons and I couldn't download photos off the Internet either. Well, today it's back and functioning as normal. So anyone who had issues earlier, try again.

Dee and Judy I know what your saying updating our page, it worked real well for me this morning but I know it sometimes takes forever.

Nan I didn't do well at all during the winter challenge. I did do new before pictures again, not much difference from past one.

I feel better now. I had the same worry that there was something wrong with my computer. We've had thunder & lightening here for the past hour or so. Who knows maybe the weather has something to do with it.
Tried again just now, still not working emoticon

I've had problems on Sparks as well as off Sparks since yesterday. I tried to change my cover photo and profile pic 3 times and it didn't take. Then later when I logged on it was suddenly changed. Then I tried to download a pic numerous times off the Internet to share with my team and I couldn't save it to my computer. I've been in a panic thinking something was wrong with my computer and have run the virus scanner, deleted history, cache and cookies and nothing works. Even the icons on my bookmarks toolbar have gone blank - a sheet of blank paper instead of the color logos.

Hearing you're having issues gives me hope there's something wrong with the Internet, Sparks or as a friend suggested, Google, instead of my computer. Maybe my having similar issues can give you hope.

We have done activities to help track our progress. Let's do one more for a Non-Scale Victory (NSV) - take a before picture this week and if you like you post it on your page. At the end of the challenge take another picture so you can see the difference 5% makes. Thinking of that future picture can help you visualize your success.

Save the outfit so you can wear it in your AFTER picture!
