I think they also can help you by rewarding your work in this process. They keep it fun and encourage you to strive for more.

I just like collecting "things" and if the things are points, it's fine by me! Also, the daily reminder of points until the next trophy serves as a motivation to get even more on a daily basis.

I like to spend the sparkpoints meeting new people whilst giving them a goodie as encouragement

Once in awhile they have tangible goodies on the login spin page (key chain, water bottle, etc.) Has anyone actually won one of those?

I too find the points to be rewarding. It does help to motivate me to keep logging my food in most days even though I don't really need to. I like to give myself "goodies" on my spark page that then materialize into real fitness equipment for my tangible rewards i.e. gym shoes, lifting gloves.

For me spark points are a reward for doing what I shoud be doing anyway. They are motivators to do better and encouragement to stay engaged. SP is like opening a gift or going through the grass in my Easter basket, there is always something else to be found hidden in the folds and a neat surprise when I open a new message, email or other.

Also, you don't get them for looking at the exercise page and watching the Demo of the exercises. I'd think that would be a great thing, getting people to look at the exercises. I set them up on my computer at home and them follow what the person is doing. I look at them often.

Great advice about the Spark page. I like my page, because it keeps things in a central location that makes it easy for me to find in a hurry. Before I had my page, I spent lots of time looking for different things. With the Spark page, everything is right there for easy access.

If you haven't created your Spark page you won't be able to receive Spark goodies from others. Start one today so you can see how to use Spark points to encourage yourself and others even more!

They help keep me motivated. I have learned alot by being here at SparkPeople and continue to learn something each day..earning the points keeps me motivated to exercise too, as I see those points adding up. So, for me they keep me motivated to continue on my journey to change my lifestyle to a healthier one.

Its funny - I don't know why I actually try to get my "reward" but it is a neat way to find additional knowledge and get the support. It actually gets you more involved and focused in the whole Spark arena. One thing I make sure I do though - is not cheat.

I am writing the next chapter!

They're not just a reward for yourself, you can reward others in a similar way by giving them a 'sparkgoodie' with an added message, so it's a pretty cool way to keep eachother motivated as well.

For me, the points are sort of a reward, or a sort of sense of accomplishment.

I am new and have not used the points yet but I think it's great. It feels good to give and recieve so it makes it a great concept.

Thanks William for your welcome!

I am new and only started last week but I have used many of my Spark Points to purchase goodies to make friends. My friend's page has grown and I have already made many connections with the people I have purchases goodies for. Have fun checking this site out, it is great. Michelle

The primary purpose for the points is to help get people involved and use the many resources available. As you read Spark emails and read articles and do searches, etc, you accumulate points. Itís basically designed to get you involved. The more you do, the more points you get. You canít use them to buy a new TV or anything like that. They are just a way to help encourage you to get more into the site and do more.
