Become Obsessed With Earning Points


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

For some reason, I have some obsession with winning. I used to be addicted to Yahoo!Answers, and I was obsessed with getting points and graduating to a higher level. Well my work has blocked y/a!, so now I've become obsessed with spark points. I go through the spark points page, and do everything I can to get as many points as possible on any given day. And i refuse to cheat.

Not only am I more educated, but I'm getting my 8 glasses of water in everyday, Making friends/buddies through message boards & blogs, logging more cardio than ever and I have lots of POINTS YAY.

    I too, have become obsessed, not only with earning points, but putting a checkmark on my goals! As a result, I am learning so much through the quizes, trivia, health articles, and news.
This is a welcome diversion from facebook, and much more motivating and educational!

    I agree whole heartedly since I become obsessed with earning points I am more motivated and more focused on my goals.

    I have too! Right now I am obsessed with catching up to my co-worker who is on here and then beating him!

    Thats funny, I do the same thing everyday. I know the points really don't matter to anyone but me, but I still get as many as possible!

    not only is this a good obsession (as obsessions go LOL), but it keeps us connected to all the really cool parts of the website. I've really learned a lot, and I thought I knew all about dieting. I especially am challenged by the Trivia Questions!
