It does when I keep getting low numbers everyday. Do my page faithfully. You would think I would hit higher numbers more often. The higher up my trophy level the harder it seems to get high points. It is 2 points here and 3 points there, even on the bonus spin. I have thousands of points to earn the higher up I go and it get harder to move up.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through CHRIST which strengtheneth me.

At one point, I was totally caught up with points. I finally realized how stupid I was being and went back to concentrating on gaining good health. Now I absorb an article or whatever else earns points instead of rushing through them just to get points.

People who talk about being bored - are boring.

There's a brighter day coming...

not really - bigger things in life than SP wheel points!

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

As others have stated, spinning the wheel was exciting. However, now it's just something to do to see how many points I end up with. Sometimes I feel that it's not even worth the effort when my spins only result in 2 points. GRRR.....

yes, a bit of a point whore here...

But I do wish that spinning the wheel was not the only way to say that you signed in. I have often broken a sign in streak simply because I forgot to spin the wheel. Even though i had exercised, entered food, and weighed in.

They don't matter to me. I usually "update my status" if I get 10 points. I never change the status so it almost always says that. At times I think of updating my status with the 2 points I usually get, mostly to be a bit cynical, but so far, I have not done that.
Hey if it motivates some people, that is great. It does nothing for me but I spin it anyway just for the heck of it. I think it would be nice if there was a way to win actual prizes. I guess some have actually reported winning prizes, but I am doubt that option exists since I have never even seen prizes listed on my wheel, let alone winning one. Unless some consider the ads that come up to buy or download a DVD or cookbook, for a price, to be a prize? I guess I don't see it that way.

But I'm not knocking Sparkpeople. It is a great resource and I love it. I'm just saying the points earned from the wheel don't do much for me.

I think it's a part of the fun. I find focus here. I find motivation here. I think the little fun things to do bring balance. I like it.

They didn't used to but now when I get anything less than a five I get a little disappointed. emoticon

Not really - I do feel they help us to log in to SP & maybe read up on something that we might not otherwise read or see what we are actually accomplishing. Good idea behind the points, but it should not be the main factor of coming here each day (in my opinion). Have a great evening.

Don't sweat the small stuff!!!

It's silly because they don't really have any value, but for some reason it is very addicting and I never miss my spins!!!

Not really, but I do like the spin for a reward idea.

I like the spin as a reward idea.

like Sheryl, I see the points as something to be able to buy goodies for others.

sometimes I'm really trying to build up points. Other times...not so much. I noticed yesterday that my total points for the MONTH are about what I use to try for in a day.

I never think about the wheel, the points, the spinning streaks... i do however like the milestone trophies ("lost x pounds" or "x-month sparkversary").

Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE**
Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

They did when I first started, a small reward for a day well done! I used the Wheel as a reward when I stayed in control-on days I didn't, no spin.

Highest weight-340+
Started Spark-255 lbs
Mini goal-200 lbs
Goal- around 160 lbs
