Sometimes Rewards can be Big??

Mon Nov. 14, 2pm – I called it QUITS. Make Changes NOW or my age (59); and weight (242); would do it for me
Wed Nov 16, 2011 – 3 pounds lighter – yes, I was serious and love my water - I Googled, to find some healthy ‘ranges’ and was repeatedly directed to a cool website and the rest is history…. SparkPeople!!!
I’m an Addict. A fitness, tracking, nutrition, water junkie. 4 Months later and I am down 40+ pounds, tracking 8,500 fitness minutes and that is HUGE for me – never enjoyed exercise and hate to sweat. I love to be active but not ‘exercise’, but now I LIVE for Zumba!! It also seems I am motivated by POINTS. Not rewards for me as much as the actual points - 16,000 of them. I’ve deserted my Farm, Islands & Cities to earn POINTS on SparkPeople which actually DOES provide Real REWARDS! Oh didn’t you know? You get all kinds of REAL Physical Perks and Rewards.. ..
That NEW healthier BODY – the one that is going to live longer with less effort and less surgeries because the hips, knees & shoulders should require less repair.
The NEW CLOTHES required to cover that new body.
The extra trip because the Plane Seats are much more comfortable.
Theater tickets also more pleasurable with ‘larger’ seats.
OH, those adventures you’ve longed to do – Para-Sailing, Horseback Riding, Zipline, Segway Tour– you know – those WEIGHT restricted activities.
Hmmm, SparkPeople Points ~~~ Farm, City, Island? ~~~ Points here? ~~~ Points there? I’m sold!! I’m HERE – Rewards are MUCH more SATISFYING!!
Who wants to go shopping?
