When I joined Spark People I was placed in a "team of september 2009" -team ( I think I was placed there I can´t remember choosing it). There were some great companions in that team who did remarkabale journeys towards health. But they have become silence, I have tried to "yohooo" them once or twice but either they are off the wagon or they are driving it in some other forums...
The leader has returned and is doing great for the moment, otherwise I have gotten used to be the only thing moving in the friend feed... because I keep on chicking in there becuse of a challenge.
The challenge was "lighten our team" and the idea was to subtract your exercise minutes from a total sum of 100 000 (I think, I hardly remember) I did not see that challenge as it started, when I discovered it it was already down to 55 000 minutes.
Since then I have kept on subtracting my minutes. In the beginning some other team members showed up now and then and did their bit but now I have been alone at it for ages. The number is really "snailing" down, as for today I am at 21 500 minutes and at this pace I will get down to zero ...2015? 2016?
It is really an action of no use at all. Nobody sees it, I don´t contribute to anything, I don´t need the points anymore... it is such a silly thing to do. If a declutter expert entered my life and tried to analyse what things and behaviour I could simplyfy my life with letting go of, this would probably be one of them.
But I am sort of amused with going there on my own and doing this completely meaningless action. It´s like collecting spark points - since I reached the highest level there is really no meaning with collecting more, but I still do it – post and huddle in five teams a day, although thinking about it I do not do the trivia thing anymore...
