I love the idea of the original post about earning "free" items with your points. I would even take it one step further. I would be happy to trade my points and pay additional monies (if needed) to purchase items that interest me such as a SP water bottle, pedometer, or inspirational book. Something tangible is always more rewarding!!!

Kissing the bad habits and FAT good bye!!!

Minor issue. How about when tracking food using groupings ou get credit for each goruping. As a example, I had my normal breakfast of a protein smoothie, banana and a extra 1/2 cup milk toda and my coffee with creamer. Total points awarded was 3. If I had logged separate I would have gotten 8 points since it had the following items:

Group 1 = 1 scoop protein powder, 1 cup milk, 1 med banana, 2 TBS sunflower seeds, 1 TBS Ghirardelli Dark chocolate powder, group 2 = coffee, creamer and then the added 1/2 cup extra milk ( was hungry this morn :-) )

Anyway if I listed this separately It would be 8 points versus the three awarded or over the three years I've been around a extra 1800 points. Not a big issue either way, I just think tracking by groups should account for total foods in the groups if possible. I prfer the convenience of logging items as groups and will continue to do so despite the loss of points.

Thank you for the great board!!

I love SP. I like the idea of the SparkPoints, but feel it would be neat to be able to accumulate our points to trade them in for entries into a drawing for stuff. I have, as I'm sure other have also, been a part of survey sites and many times you are rewarded by getting points, etc. that you could use to put your name into a drawing. I notice lots of advertising that I'm sure some of these companies would be happy to supply the site with free merchandise for give aways. I certainly would be more motivated to log my food choices and do other things to earn the points if I knew the points would give me a chance to earn something. Even free tshirts, water bottles, key chains, buttons, etc....I'd be game! Just a suggestion!
