Hi Sylvia - I've wondered that too. I work hard at SP, and get maybe 100 points each day, but that's when I'm doing a lot of exercising... working in the garden for 3-4 hours, or doing "big" housecleaning jobs.
Yesterday I emptied all the cupboards in the laundry room, washed them out, sorted all the stuff, filled everything up again, washed the window, doors, baseboards, appliances and floor, scrubbed the laundry tub... and did manage to get 24 points, but I certainly don't do that every day, or even every month!
Don't worry about the people who get numbers of points that seem unreasonable; I suppose there are ways to cheat on this like everyhing else. The main thing is that we're exercising as much as we can, learning about nutrition and cooking differently maybe than we did before, controlling portions, and trying new foods. And, best of all, making new friends.
A lot of people ask that question. And I have not heard an answer!
There are a few ways to get mega points, like when you buy the book, but that is a one-time thing. Also, you can enter your exercise and food up to a week in advance so some people do that and enter the most allowed.
Don't worry about those people with so many points! Most "regular" people are doing good to get 100 points in one day and that is after spending all day on this website. 2739 days ago
