Good morning SFriends and SManagement of SP decisions,
I would like to respectfully suggest that you DUMP the 1, 2 and 3 point spins on the Log In Wheel. Although I have come up with a few 10, 20 and even the occasional 50 point spin, I once again came up with a 1 point login spin first thing this morning. In fact, most of the week I have been coming up with 1, 2 and the occasional 3 point spins.
Most of us on this site, in my opinion, are here to try to lose weight, maintain weight loss, make friends, encourage friends, get encouragement, learn, etc . . . Surely, if someone is encouraged by "big point" spins, then the opposite is true as well. These really low point spins tend to be discouraging and disheartening.
Although, for the most part we take it lightly - what is the point? These points are not costing SP anything. They serve to do only 2 things - encourage us when we get them, and enable us to encourage others on the site by giving Goodies - what a wonderful concept! It also serves to encourage us to continue to log in every day. I am close to stopping. I have enough disappointment in my life to not want to experience yet another one . . . no matter how trivial . . . first thing in the morning when I login to SP. I have had enough tragedy in my life to know this is a small thing, but it is exactly because of that, that I know the small things in life can really perk someone up!
SP recently added additional Bonus Points on the new page which is helpful. But there's nothing that makes up for that depressing feeling of "really???" when we come up with 1 or 2 points.
Many of us are fighting low esteem issues that often go hand in hand with the additional weight we've carried most of our lives, or have gained for whatever reason. We're fighting back for our health . . . for our lives . . . but SP should only serve as an encouragement and cheerlead us on to victory.
So, IMHO . . . Get rid of the low points!
P.S. I still love SP
