thanks for the heads up.........great prizes to win..........


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Sorry I hadn't picked up on this message until now...hope your food tracking problem has been solved...? I, unfortunately am not the best person to ask as I have to confess to DETESTING tracking my food in any explicit way. I've gotten this far without doing so and until I run up against a long-standing plateau I will probably never track my food. I know this is an important ingredient to the SP approach, but it's just not for me.

I'm hoping it was a temporary glitch...?

I'm posting this under "introductions" as many of our newbies may be unaware of the SparkPoint system.

You've heard the expression that: there are two types of people 1) those who say there are two types of people and those who don't! :-)

Well, there are two types of Sparkies: 1) those who love their SparkPoints, and 2) those who wrinkle their nose in disdain over such childish "toys."

Confession time:

I am an unabashed, point-grubbing Sparkie...lol!

I love racking up SparkPoints and when you earn more of them you get MUCH better TROPHIES (located in the upper right-side of the page under "My SparkPoints") and can SPEND your SparkPoints buying GOODIES for treating other members!

Many of you may know various ways of accumulating SparkPoints, via tracking food, exercise, reading Spark emails, articles, etc. However, I remember it took me quite a while to find this not-so-obvious method for adding SparkPoints to your total:

On any of your SparkPages underneath where it lists your Total Points their is a link called "View SparkPoints." If you follow this link a page will open to your SparkPoints page with a big wheel of fortune you can click to spin and earn extra SparkPoints...woo hoo! Sometimes I've earned as many as an extra 25 points! Once I won a SparkPeople bumper sticker! I love it! :-)

Underneath the wheel all the various ways one can earn SparkPoints are listed. Check it out!

I love to rack up 70+ points a day if I can! I figure my fixation on SparkPoints has replaced my old fixation on sweets and baked goods...lol! A low-cal alternative...hooray!

Anyhow, I thought I'd post this for the benefit of any newbies who want to grub after points like I do!

Have fun out there people!
