Good point and it is well taken!
The sparks points has been my motivation for a long time. And with the bonus spin, I work to get at least the 25 points so that I can spin the second wheel. After that, I work for 50 points. Then if I have my other things met then I return to try for 100 points.

Welcome to SparkPeople!
Are you competitive by nature? One of my daily goals is to hit 100 SparkPoints. When I do that, I've not only read articles, I've interacted with other members by reading and commenting on their blogs and writing my own blog. 100 points gets me here and gets me active each and every day.
When I started, I made the commitment to workout daily and write a blog about it. On days when I don't feel like doing it, I think about the blog I need to write and I certainly do NOT want to write that I was lazy and did not work out.
Maintain your goals on your SparkPage (that's what all the goal-setting gurus write about) and make the goals public on your page. Write about it on your blog every day.
Weight loss = calorie maintenance, cardio, and strength. Calorie maintenance is every day, cardio is at least five days per week, and strength is 3 to 4 days per week. I believe you need all three for a successful weight loss and fitness program.
Above all, be consistent. Doing something toward you goal every day will pay big rewards over the next few months. You can do this!

I've logged onto SparkPeople several times over the years and yet never signed up until today. I was afraid that I would have to be accountable for myself & my choices & I wasn't willing to do that. Until now. I want to be a better person than I was yesterday & I want to enjoy this lifetime & stop hiding from it.
