I opened two tickets today with the Wellness for Life folks regarding the weight tracker and the mobile app access.

For anyone who might be interested, the weight tracker option is only available if you choose the "Weight Loss" focus when you register. If you switch your focus, all of your current goals, etc. will be reset and you'll need to fill out your profile again.

The Help Desk confirmed that the mobile apps are not an available feature of the IBM program. I asked them to log the request for this support, and they indicated that they will do so and the requests are reviewed on a monthly basis. Anyone else who is interested in this type of support might want to also log the request; I would think the more interest they hear expressed from people might bump up the request on the priority list.

I don't have a link on my SP start page to track my weight. I'll have to report the problem and see what they say. Thanks!

I will definitely let you know if I hear anything back from the survey; I agree, it would be very handy to use the mobile app!

Although I have entered some fitness in SparkPeople (aka Virtual Food Pro), I primarily use VFC to track fitness minutes. I am actually not sure how I reached the fitness tracker on SP. I cannot seem to get there now, but I think there was a link in one of the BLOGs or SP Articles.

I do use SP to track my weight. On my SP start page I have a link to 'Weigh In' that is below the 'Meal Planner' link.

Let me know if you get a response to survey. It would be really handy to be able to keep up my tracking if I could use the IPAD or phone. I would be more likely to track on the weekends.

I had the same problem, and, unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a way to make it work.
I did just fill out a survey for SparkPeople and reported this issue.

I noticed in your post it appears as though you're tracking your weight and possibly fitness minutes through the Virtual Food Pro? I would be very interested to learn how you're doing that...I use the VFC to track my fitness minutes, and I can't find any way to track weight.

Thanks for sharing!

I access SparkPeople via the IBM Virtual Fitness Center. Does anyone know if it is possible to use the mobile apps on the IPAD or Android when your SparkPeole account is connect to VFC?
