I have a love/hate relationship with it. Logging in does absolutely NOTHING for moving me forward. HOWEVER, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE SEEING THE NUMBER OF LOGIN DAYS ADD UP!!! So it really bothers me when I miss a day and lose that WONDERFULLY LONG STREAK! When home in Mexico, it happens often (especially during rainy season) due to the intermittent internet connection. Oh, but Stateside is a wonder! I was up to a 151+ login streak! Somehow I'd managed to get logged in even during rainy season in Mexico before we came Stateside.

But today! Today it says I have a 1 day streak. WHAAAAT?! 1 measly day, meaning today. WHAT IN THE WORLD HAPPENED YESTERDAY?!!??! I wasn't terribly busy, wasn't feeling bad, was on top of recording things. I have no clue, but here I am stuck with 1 measly day.

So, I repeat. To do, or not to do? It's really not that terribly important. I just happen to like THAT particular streak. I missed it--surely wasn't a contemplated choice, and I was on Spark reading and doing. So here's to that one elusive spin day, and here's to seeing if I can beat that streak in the next 6 months, although I really DO know nothing about my success depends on that. In fact, I have OTHER streaks that are FAR MORE IMPORTANT which I do NOT obsess about. How funny is that.

P.S. I tried to explain this to my husband once, and he just looked at me like I was an alien or something. So . . . half of you may react like him. But there just MIGHT be someone in SparkPeople World who understands my intense frustration at having lost that streak.

Hasta luego . . .

    I understand the "need" to get that login spin! I have missed only 1 day and it was when they would shut the site down to do upgrades and didn't let us know. I work late at night and 11 PM (which would have been 12 AM EST) I had done most the work but hadn't logged in yet. Learned to log in soon after opening the site. I have 11 yrs in now as of today! Just realized the date!!

    I understand!! :-) It has happened to me several times. I have a good streak going, a worthless streak really as you describe and then when I travel to my favorite rural area! Bam! bye bye streak. Bad storm, no internet....BAM there goes another streak! I just start over and say I wonder how far I will get this time!?! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
