1 Billion SparkPoints Earned!

Tuesday, March 31, 2009



Congratulations! As of about 11:30 a.m. EST, we've racked up more than 1 billion SparkPoints!

By tracking food, reading stories, posting on the Message Boards and just being active on the site over the last five years or so, each and every SparkPeople member has worked hard to earn those 1 billion Points.

This milestone is less about the Points than the steps we took to get there. We tracked our food and cardio, forged friendships in Teams, and shared our success on the Message Boards. Not about competition, this milestone proves how powerful we can be if we work together to reach our goals.

To earn those 1 billion Points, we:
  • Burned more than 5.6 billion calories!
  • Lost more than 7.2 million pounds!
  • Drank more than 162 million cups of water. (That's more than 40.500 tons of water!)

    We all deserve a pat on the back! What will you do today to earn your SparkPoints?

        It's good to know I contributed a few Sparkpoints:) I was only a week into it when the loyal SP reached a billion points. I plan to contribute my share in the next one billion points!

        emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I, personally, take pride in this fabulous milestone knowing I stayed up way past my bedtime many nights because I wanted to get all my points, or was chatting with some folks!!!! I drank at least a quarter ton of water. BUT I lost a total of 58 of those pounds!! So I am quite proud of SparkPoeple's milestone! emoticon emoticon emoticon Ellie

        I can't believe what this site has done for me....It has helped me to get focused on me and my health. Women have so many distractions...the focus can easily slip away to other things and other family members....when it does, Spark is there to get me back on track. I love Spark and all my SP friends. I don't know what I would do without it. Thanks Sparks...you are truly a life saver.

        Wow! Congratulations to Sparkpeople. If this wasn't such a fabulous site, the billion would have never been reached. I salute each person for each thing they did. May the good work continue! I shall do my hula hoop for some extra time today and log the cardio minutes. Woohoo!

        That is fantastic. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon That's comes from having all these fantastic tools here for us to use as well as this site. There are many here that wouldn't have been using the site and doing these great things if it weren't for the fact that there are no fees and monthly dues to pay.

    Thank you Spark People for doing that for so many of us that are on tight budgets! We appreciate it more than we can say.
