30,000-39,999 SparkPoints 30,602


Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Someone on this site has 2,979 sparkpoints for this month already. That's almost 600 points every day so far. I am imagining a person who does nothing else during the day except be glued to this site in some way...whether sitting in front of a laptop or punching things into an app.

I am lucky to have a few days where I can get over 100 points, and once I got over 250 last month. But even though I got the points for reading articles does not mean I actually took the time to read them all. It just means I went to the page and clicked the button at the bottom to collect the points.
if you spent all day reading articles, & watching the videos....then when do you have time for like...eating, sleeping, exercise, work, and whatever else?

Sometimes I wonder, if people are more interested in the points or the info on here. Focusing on points can seem like a competition and I have never really been a competitive person. In fact whenever my aunt starts acting as if she is competing about ANYTHING...I walk away.

    I once read an explanation of that...the spark activity and food trackers allow you to record in advance, so some people are recording ALL their food for the week or month, who knows? The explanation was that as month went on, it would all "even out". I don't know if Spark should allow that or not, but I personally think it's crazy to log every thing in advance...heck, I don't know what I'm having for dinner until about noon of that day!

    For me, I don't like to compete against/with others... BUT... I do love to compete against myself. AND, the points mean an awful lot to me... they keep me motivated and I feel really cheated when I get thwarted by the site in my quest for motivating points.

    Different people are motivated differently. I love the spark points. It keeps me motivated. It also does help me with losing weight and staying on track. I am divorced, retired, and children grown, s o I have time. emoticon

    Yeah, sometimes I think there are hick-ups in the points system. But you can earn a lot of bonus points by buying their books and activity tracker, so who knows?

    I am very competitive too, I can get around 200 points on here in a very, very short time

    I don't see how it's possible to get that many points in a day. The highest I can get is around 200 with bonus spins.

    Who cares, competition at anything is fun. And if it leads to a healthier body and life ... so be it. Let her go.
