I just hit 66,000 points level today. That is a lot of points over the last year and a half. I work hard daily to get to this goal. I really enjoy the new quiz addition, I can take these and get more points also. They are not long and drawn out quizzes either.
I like have a goal to work towards. It helps to keep me motivated to earning points and just keep up the consistent work. It means a lot to me for some strange reason. I keep on going higher. Wonder just how high I will go?? I am at my maintenance stage but I am finding it is not as easy as it is made out to be. I am happy I lost the weight do not get me wrong. But the sugar seems to creep its way in and so I need to buckle down and get back down. I really think I need to get a cushion weight and stay within that range for me to keep an eye on things.
My Mom does not help that is for sure. She seems to think I need to have sweets daily since I have lost the weight. She is a baker and constantly makes food I like, it is not easy turning your Mother down. She takes it very personally when you do. This is my new challenge to find a happy medium with her and my new lifestyle where I will not gain weight again. It may only be 6 pounds but it is so long of a times to take that back off. Plus I do not like seeing the scale go up instead of down.
Funny thing happening now is I hear voices telling me I am not satisfied how I look. At my age I need to be realistic and know just what I am going to be like now and in the future. Losing all this weight does not mean I will look 30 again. But I am healthier than I ever was in 20 years that is very positive. Can you tell I have to reassure myself even after I have lost 90 pounds. This is a life long challenge for me and I may never see what I had hoped for but I pray I never go back to what I was either. this a whole lot better than right.
