What 69,000+ SparkPoints and 60,000+ Fitness Minutes got me

Monday, September 03, 2012

I wasn't really paying attention to my total SparkPoints or fitness minutes were until the other day when I saw a lot of "likes" in my feed because I had crossed over 60,000 minutes and then 69,000 SparkPoints. Those numbers look pretty impressive, eh? But really, they are just numbers, and they won't buy anything (well, except Spark Goodies, which I do love to give out and don't do nearly often enough!).

That started me thinking about what all those SparkPoints and minutes HAVW done. They've taken me from this:



to this:



Amazing what those points and minutes can do, isn't it? I never imagined that I'd make it this far when I started, 108 pounds down and within 4 pounds of a healthy BMI for the first time in decades. Now I'm looking at the next big challenge: maintenance and trimming body fat. That's a subject for another blog, though!

Hang in there, friends. Keep logging on, spinning the wheel, reading and writing and working out to the best of your ability. It pays to keep trying until you find the combination that works for you, because we only really fail when we give up and quit trying. Know that I'll be right here rooting for you every step of the way!

    Love those fitness minutes! It's all a numbers game, and you're coming up aces as far as I can see (ok, so I mixed metaphors there but you get the gist LOL)
Congratulations on being such an outstanding example of success via SparkPeople and determination!

    I am so proud of you! You are totally right: That's what the numbers "get" us. I often think about my Sparkfriends who have been on Spark as long as me but aren't anywhere near as active and don't seem to have much success...being active on Spark, through the thick AND the thin, is a big part of my journey!

I had to show my husband your pictures and he wanted me to tell you how much he loves your running picture: "Now THAT'S an athlete!"

Thanks for such an encouraging blog this morning!!!

    You look great! I see a featured Spark member in your future! One thing I really like is that you have more fitness points than overall Spark points. I need to move my ratio in that direction.

    well done! in fact, awesome! and you are right, the points in and of themselves may not mean anything, but they do signify that we are focusing on staying on track - setting and achieving goals for life, not just the immediate future. you are an inspiration! emoticon
