Spark Level 25
Sunday, December 03, 2017
WooHoo! Today I reached Spark's highest level for overall points of 350,000. It only took me 6 years and 4 months.
I'm pleased to have done it, as it means I have tried to learn all I can in pursuit of good health and maintained weight loss, and have encouraged others. But after 2 recent vacations, I am once again fighting the battle to get back to goal weight. Wouldn't you think that after all this time and effort, I would have found something that works for me for maintenance? I know we are all different, but I can't help looking at my primary maintenance role model, Adrienaline, and wondering... Why can't I stay in a 2-lb range like she does? My maintenance is good when I'm at home, preparing all my meals, but when I'm away, I sample all the local goodies, gain 5-10 pounds, and return home vowing to just get it back off again as quickly as possible.
Since I'm now in retirement and love to travel, this has become a too-often routine, and if I'm blessed enough to do even more travel, I could lose the "home time" needed to re-boot. I've got to find a better system. Any suggestions?
I just bought a new Fitbit -- wore the last one out. Maybe I can challenge myself a bit more with it, especially on vacations!
Oh well, Back to congratulating myself on sticking with it!
