    Struggles/successes: Weight is back down and I’ve managed lots of exercise. Still really struggling to sleep much more than four hours a night and I know this is affecting hunger as well as energy. I have no problem falling asleep, just can’t stay asleep! Any ideas?!

    Have a good weekend all x

    @Faebert I sleep in 2-4 hour blocks. It's because I need the toilet. I'm fine sleeping again after I go. Could it be that?

    After the holidays I'm thinking about going back into weight loss mode until I reach 115. I would like my range to be between 115 and 125. Reason for the change is because I'm two inches shorter than I was 2 years ago and that changed my BMI numbers.

    Thanks @Orphia I think my problem is that whatever the reason I wake up, my mind immediately starts thinking about what I have to do the next day. I workout really early in the mornings too so sometimes I decide I might as well just get up and have a bit of extra quiet time before the workout. But I’m going to work on going straight back to bed instead. Managed an extra hour last night so hopefully a good start!

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week:
    Great blog.....thanks for starting in. Thrilled to share my goals with others!!
    In late September, I started a strength training regime with a Personal Trainer. While my dietary intake has not changed, my weight is changing because I'm building muscle. I'm feeling the best I've felt in a long time and plan to continue!

    Has anyone had their weight just randomly start getting really erratic? My weight used to stay pretty steady +/- a couple lbs but here lately it's been fluctuating quite a lot. Like some days it'll be as low as 151 and others as high as 157. Doesn't have anything to do with my monthly cycle as far as I can tell.

    I started keeping an excel log of my calories in, out, net , and my weight, trend weight, total lbs lost, and day of cycle. I'm such a nerd.

    Name: missperfectpitch
    Height: 5'4"
    Total weight lost: About 43 pounds
    Time it took to lose: 1 year and 2 months
    How long in maintenance: I hit my goal weight in the beginning of January 2018, but officially started maintenance in mid-March 2018 after figuring out my calories for a couple of months.
    Maintenance weight range: 108-111.5

    Average weight recorded from January: 110.6
    Average weight recorded from February: 109.5
    Average weight recorded from March: 109.0
    Average weight recorded from April: 109.1
    Average weight recorded from May: 109.3
    Average weight recorded from June: 109.7
    Average weight recorded from July: 110.1
    Average weight recorded from August: 109.7
    Average weight recorded from September: 110.3
    Average weight recorded from October: 110.1

    Week of...
    November 3: 110.5 (trend 110.3)
    November 10: 110.1 (trend 110.2)
    November 17: 110.3 (trend 110.2)
    November 24: 109.5 (trend 109.8)

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I managed to remain consistently in the middle of my maintenance range this week, despite two days of eating a ton of food over the holiday and the day after. I also somehow over-budgeted calories for those days (didn't eat quite as much as I'd thought that I would), which means that I've got a bunch of extra calories for next week's use!
