150,000-199,999 SparkPoints 187,169

Level 19 --less than 300 points needed

Monday, September 02, 2013

So how much time and effort does it take to get to Level 19?

Quite a bit, but it can be very rewarding.
1. spark points for the day and bonus spark point wheel, of course
2. Use the" Quick" Menu to the right of the screen
-my recent posts- I add to yesterdays posts and get the max points for messages
-here is where I check in to various teams. If I play a game , it shows up in :recent posts." Then I can easily continue adding to the game I joined or add to the team I posted on. It is the only way I can keep track of previous posts!
3, -use the top Community button for spark pages-mine--to write me daily blog
-use the top Community button for spark teams-my spark teams- to huddle for max huddle points if I don't already have those

4. On the START PAGE do many things
-track my food and, after tracking, the nutritional information at the top and the chart at the bottom
- track my fitness-hopefully it has been a water aerobics day and I can get a bunch of points , especially when I do 2 classes in one day, Tue. and Thur.
-read the articles shown for the day--and recipe of the day

I try to really connect with spark friends, not just earn points.

I focus on the team I started and be sure to post there in several forums and read how members are doing. As often as possible, I try to send emails to people who post on "my" team.
-or post on their blogs. Under the huddle area is "BLOGS." Those are blogs of members of my team-----or whatever taeam I happen to be looking at.

I love all this. It is certainly not a chore. The only negative is that I often eat at my computer and I should be eating meals and even snacks at the table! emoticon

I started sparking in Jan 2008. It is now 2013, Sept. Four and a half years to get to Level 19.

It has been a very wonderful journey for me. Without my sparkfriends , I would not have maintained this 24 lb. weight loss. I have lots of stress in my life at this point--even if I am retired. My sparkfriends emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
are the reason I still am fairly sane and fairly healthy! I thank you all for giving me info on stress, body pain, exercise, veggies and more veggies, certain meds and supplements, care-giving, sites around the world, etc. etc.

Love you all!!!!!!!!!!! chris emoticon

    You've been such a good friend and touched my life. I'm surprised at the support of people I've just met on line have helped me get through difficult situations. It's more than just gathering points, it's progress in so many areas. And it's true that what we put out there, comes back to us hundredfold!

    I'd like to see a blog about what you've learned, what healthier changes you've made and kept for a long period of time, and what changes you're currently working on. A person can earn 100,000 sparkpoints without ever making a single positive change in their life. I know you've made some changes; how about sharing that?

    I'm half-way through level 18, but know it's going to take quite a while to earn the "last" 10,000 points. No matter, I'm learning new things every day and catching up with my Spark Friends.

    I learned a lot from your Blog. I am a very slow typist never did this till Spark. I think it is kind of a letdown when you get to 20,000. I have so much less interest in Spark points now so I do my blogs and try to welcome new people, It does take way too much of my time but I love this place I tried FB but it's not for me this is so much nicer.
    I am glad this blog is more up beat. I feel like I should copy it so I know where to find things . Thanks so much for posting all that information, Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon
