    Thanks for sharing

    I am so glad you posted this. I find myself doing things to earn points. I was beginning to think I was a little weird. It is nice to know others do this as well. So, I guess the points are a pretty good motivator.

    Yes, I am fully -- I do it every single day!

    I love logging my fitness minutes and, yes, I have worked out longer so I could log more minutes.

    I do this more to see how much I am actually doing rather than for the points. The points are the added bonus.

    I log in daily, but as far as the points they are just a game nothing conclusive so in reality it should not matter. I like the fact that I can keep track rather than collect points.

    Sometimes I'm amazed at the number of calories I have burned by working out

    Yes, I do this as it keep s me accountable and aware of the things I'm doing, how may calories I'm burning, to increase where I need to and with the nutrition food tracker, where I'm lacking, where my calories are coming form and the nutrition valule.
