I never said or implied that people at or above 100,000 points were in maintenance. I said achieving 100,00 points was SIMILAR to being in maintenance.
IE: Like being in maintenance.
Maybe I'll explain.
Your points don't correlate with your weight loss. You get them for things you do here, regardless of whether or not you lose weight. The top trophy (goal) is 100,000, although you continue to keep getting points for activities even after you reach this goal.
Once you get to goal weight, you have to keep repeating your habits to stay at that weight. Your new goal is staying there once you get there. You are no longer rewarded with getting to see the number on the scale go down, unless you continue to lose. Instead, you LEARN to keep doing what you were doing, at whatever intensity you need to stay where you want to be. The rewards in maintenance are different even though the process still involves eating well and being active.
Once you get to your goal weight or strength, you can be tempted to slack. Kind of like once people get to 100,000 points for activities, they may want to stop or slow down on those.
*Edited because I hit post before I was finished.
I am not against additional trophies/levels. I'm just concerned if too many new levels creates a focus on points rather than health.

I'm working my way back to the size I want to be.
On a journey for strength and good health.
