There is a 3 point net loss - the point for setting an appointment is gone, too. And the sign in wheels seem overall LOWER (sometimes the only numbers I see are 2 3 5 7...and most of them are 2's and 3's. The bonus wheel isn't as "rewarding" as it used to be....I go for weeks without ever SEEING a reward, and when I see it, I don't get it. These things are actually meaningless in terms of money or prizes - but they are huge motivators. Also, I have always thought that some of the sponsors could be "inspired" to give some of their products as prizes once in a while. If we could try it, we might buy it. Obviously, winners would know where it was coming from. These same companies give prizes through other venues. I guess because I spend so much time on Spark People, I am always looking for ways for it to keep other people coming in every day, too.

Coach Denise is mostly correct. Strength training points were removed, and 8 of those points distributed elsewhere. You can now get more for tracking food, and for commenting on blog posts.

There is a 2 point net loss, though.

Those are still in your totals, they just aren't listed in the SparkPoints task list.

Are the Spark Points we earned when we were getting 24 (cardio) and 10 (strength training) still in our totals? I have gone back and looked at prior days' tracking, to see where I was a month ago - I do this periodically - and all it shows is the 24 total exercise points. Did 10 per day get removed, or are they still in the overall totals?
