As an admitted reward junkie, I am excited because I just found one more place where SparkPeople gives recognition. And it is extra exciting because it is for just about the most important thing that can be measured on SparkPeople. It's not a trophy or one of those monthly awards, although I like them all. It doesn't show up on my SparkPage. But it is there, when I earn it. And the reward tells me at a glance how I am really doing with my program.
Did you know that when you stay within your calorie range, you get a STAR, and a yellow-gold star at that, right on your SparkSummary Calendar?? Go to your Start page and down on the left hand column click on SparkSummary Calendar and, if you have any days you have stayed within your calorie range and tracked it, a star will appear on that day! How cool!
Since I was a little kid I would do almost anything to earn a star. I really do know that the only approval I need is my own; external validation is just not necessary. But I know me. I'll work for stars!
