    I have logged in my food everyday for 115 days! Its easy and great to know you are in control! emoticon
BRANDONSMOM26 3/31/2010 2:07:00 PM

    This was my tip as well, i have definitly noticed a difference when i log on everyday. going down the spark poitns list exposes me to all the great information on the site that can be a bit overwhelming at first. i didn't know where to start and the spark points lead you in every direction
SPARKYFLOWER 9/15/2015 10:23:00 AM

    Liked your idea
NYINME 12/3/2014 8:51:00 AM

    Yes. Racking up the points is a good motivator for me to check in every day. Reading the articles along the way is very helpful. It's fun to gain points for doing what I love most: reading!
CONNIEDETHOMAS 8/30/2014 9:33:00 AM

    So very very true!!! I always do so much better when I log in.
Doing my blog first thing in the morning had also always helped me.
GRATEFUL_DAWN 3/26/2014 9:05:00 AM

    You are too right. Thanks for sharing the spark.
ASCHELLER22 2/20/2014 3:27:00 PM

    I actually made my Start page one of my "Home" tabs on my internet browser - even at work! I do a lot of work on the internet (as a public high school teacher) and whenever I take attendance or update grades, my Start page is right there. I use my lunch time to log my meals so far, read the suggested articles, and plan my dinner.
SJIVERSON 9/2/2013 12:33:00 PM

    Every morning I log in and add my food and exercise for the day. It really helps to know how many calories you consume in a day. The exercise sets me up for a good start to my day. emoticon emoticon
LDAVENPOR4 7/9/2013 8:37:00 PM

    Daily log ins really make a difference. emoticon
MOONCHILD8 4/6/2013 9:32:00 PM

    Yes I try to log in everyday. I am losing more weight. Best wishes, Linda from bean town
WALLPER26 3/5/2013 9:41:00 PM

    I totally agree. But be careful not to get distracted and spend too much time on the computer, to the detriment of eating well and moving!
MOSTMOM1 12/14/2012 10:38:00 AM

    I agree! Logging in and spinning the wheel every day, helps keep Spark running in the back of my mind every day.
CHRISGORGME 11/25/2012 4:40:00 AM

    Spark coach and the trackers keep me on track every day emoticon
DNRAE1 9/10/2012 10:03:00 AM

    It helps keep me from giving up when things aren't going my in down the scale! Logging in each day motivates me and reminds me why I'm here.
AW5938 7/13/2011 11:21:00 AM

    Miss not logging in daily because there is always reward in doing so, from the encouragement to informational resources and tracking ability.
GOMEIN2011 4/29/2011 8:57:00 PM

    I try to spark and huddle every day!!!!
CANOGAPARKGAL 11/5/2010 1:47:00 PM

    So true! rack up those points! emoticon
KITTY1970 9/17/2010 10:40:00 AM

    Well, I don't do it most mornings b/c I don't want to spend the whole day on the computer. But I do like to even when I'm not here @ the home & am up north where I'm not having the computer my hubby will log in for me.
COCOAMARIA 9/14/2010 11:27:00 AM

    Thanks I have been working on this
SANDRA638 9/14/2010 11:04:00 AM

RSTATHIS 9/14/2010 10:53:00 AM

    Great reminder!
NANASAMM 8/26/2010 9:32:00 PM

    I LOVE watching my "log in SparkStreak" add up. I look forward to collecting my SparkPoints and logging my food and exercise. Logging into SparkPeople has made a big difference in my motivation. emoticon
BROWNIEISLANDER 8/2/2010 4:56:00 PM

    Its now my 5th month of Sparks tomorrow....and i'm still eagerly
involved....and excited about....everything...try not to miss!! emoticon
GRATEFUL111 6/14/2010 4:37:00 PM

    I agree. I am now on a 15 day streak (my longest so far).
BLAKBIRD 5/27/2010 11:17:00 PM

    After one month I'm beginning to see how logging food exercise etc will help me understand how the choices I make affect me weight, well being and attitudes.

And the teams, what can one say. Extremely supportive.

BROWNIEISLANDER 4/28/2010 9:07:00 PM

    I look forward to logging in daily Its a great pick me up. emoticon
LEGOMAN77 4/21/2010 11:02:00 PM

    not just logging in...but share the spark with at least one person a day... emoticon
MARDGY 4/11/2010 3:09:00 PM

    This is what keeps me on track and I could not agree with you more. I have both February and March perfect attendance awards to show that I mean business about logging in every day.
COLOURFULME 4/6/2010 5:45:00 AM

    Yes I do too! I noticed how addicted I am that when yesterday my connection went dead I was stressed! LOL Oh well I won't get a perfect attendance trophy this month. Tough! But my weight will be down!!!
BROWNIEISLANDER 3/29/2010 9:48:00 PM

    Logging in on evenings is my motivator.I find myself daily thinking about the site with eager anticipation,and mentally willing the time to pass so I can go home,its amazing I'm addicted.I've gained lots of valuable info here,mighty glad I found the site. emoticon
WANNABEETRIM2 3/29/2010 2:30:00 PM

    I agree 100%.
Logging in the first thing in the morning has become part of my "diet and exercise" routine.
On days when I miss, I feel I'm missing something all day long.
ADKONKLE 3/29/2010 2:02:00 PM

    I have found that logging into Spark People helps me stay on track, especially after a "bad" day. Consistency spills over into all areas.
KATHERYNP 3/29/2010 8:29:00 AM

    This is a big one for me as well. I start out reading the daily article that comes to my e-mail so that takes me to my Spark Points page. I then do many of the little things to start earning points. I like the Trivia questions, reading blogs, going to the team huddles in the morning and seem to find new things every day!! This site rocks!!!
WATOGA17 3/29/2010 8:19:00 AM

    I agree! Make it a morning habit. I do it with my morning coffee. emoticon
MAMAGOSS 3/29/2010 7:59:00 AM

    I do the same thing - a great way to guarantee success!
WYWIWOMAN 3/29/2010 7:43:00 AM

    Wonderful suggestion that has worked for me. If I get a bit down in emotions, energy level, or enthusiam I have found that I need to keep logging in to stay in charge of my life. SP's a tool for everyone's self-care toolkit.
