    Success/Struggles: I'm feeling good, weight's back up to maintenance and getting back my energy! I'm starting a third training session with my PT for the next 3 weeks, since she'll be gone 2 weeks at Christmas. I'm determined to continue the weight training on my own while she's gone, it's just too hard to keep coming back and making up lost progress. :)

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Posting two weeks' worth of data as I was away last weekend with lots of good food and drinks. Not much of interest for last week, but this week is a bit odd as, despite all the eating out last weekend as well as throughout this week (ordered lots of takeout and have been eating mostly that all week), my weight seems to have dropped into the lower end of my range. I don't think I underestimated all of the food that much, so maybe there was some water weight I was holding on to that I dropped. Either way, it's the ups and downs like this that are making me more and more comfortable that I am indeed maintaining over the past several months, and that any "gain" or "loss" is not a real gain or loss!

    Age: 40
    Height: 5’6
    Total weight lost: about 50lbs
    Time it took to lose: on and off 3 years. First 30 in 4 months and then gradually reduced goal weight
    How long in maintenance: 18 months
    Maintenance weight range: 115-120
    Average weight recorded from 2017 (12months): 121

    Average weight recorded from November: 115.7

    Week of...
    December 3: 115.25
    December 10: 116.25

    Struggles/successes: There have been many celebration meals for my 40th (bf, friends, family) so it’s been hard staying in maintenance. Have kept up the usual exercise and added a couple of short runs in to land only a pound up so I guess it’s probably been a successful week. Want to stay fairly strict this week up to my work Xmas party and thereafter until Christmas itself so I don’t worry too much.

    Have a good week all x

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week:Back in my range although not at my lowest weight before I left for vacation. I purposely went below my range before we left to allow for some extra indulgence while gone. I liked that number even though it's a vanity number would like to get there again with the holidays parties going to try my best.

    Success/Struggles: Had a good week! Looking forward to all the family birthdays coming up next weekend (older daughter and son-in-law have the same birthday and older grandson is the next day). I've started making a few meals that I can freeze and pull out when we have those nights where nobody wants to cook and the choice is take-out or eat out. Or eat all the homemade cookies before I get a chance to freeze them :)
