May Challenge: Maintainers Back on Track Thread

sofchaksofchak Posts: 862Member Member Posts: 862Member Member
This challenge is specific to Maintainers who may have lost a little enthusiasm along the journey to better health or simply need to refocus efforts - let’s use this space as a discussion / accountability thread to get back on track and ultimately back in goal range. Check in as often as you like (weekly or bi-weekly preferred).

I just ask that you focus on up to three things:

1. Your current goal - can be big (like run a 10k or lose 10 lbs by Memorial Day) or small (like eat at a deficit 2 days a week or lose 1/2 lb a week)
2. Recent success - this can be tied to your goal (lost 3 lbs!) or a completely separate NSV (lost a pant size or ran a mile without stopping)
3. (NEW OPTIONAL) Strategy - how are you planning to meet your goal?

Here goes...

How long in maintenance:
Goal maintenance range:
Current weight:
Current goal:
Recent success:
Strategy for your goal:
«1345

    My attempt at losing last month was a bust. I'm up another pound. Still within my 5 pound window, but barely (124.4). I know why. Most days were over goal by 200-600 calories. I am still trying to eat as I normally do but with 10 miles a week less running, it's not possible to keep the weight from creeping up. That 900 calories makes a big difference.

    I feel for you. Exercise is so impt, not just for allowing a few more calories but also, for me, it works as an appetite suppressor. I find it much easier to make good choices when I get the e exercise in.

    Alllll of this I can relate to recently. Ugh.

    Getting easier (at least for now). I ha e really focused on making sure that I eat enough and have not had any issues with bingeing since.

    Went out to dinner with friends yesterday. "Banked" some calories so I could indulge. Chosecsalmon for dinner and actually ended under for the day. Had a yummy, favorite evening snack later to make sure I met daily calorie intake. Felt really good about choices and how things are going in general.

    @jan110144 I’m so happy for you! (And I’m taking notes as I’m right behind you!)
