    Success/Struggles: Did better this week at controlling my emotional eating while recovering from injury. Started hiking on Saturdays as well as doing a lot of walking to combat restless energy, am staying consistent with lifting, although upper body work only. One day at a time.

    Wishing everyone a successful upcoming week!

    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

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: My weight has just creeped even higher this past week. Again, lots of eating out and not enough water. I just started on a mini vacation yesterday for the next week (to where I grew up, so I don't consider it a "real" vacation, but I plan to eat everything while I'm here). I managed to get in 24k steps yesterday (walking around a lot in the city). This upcoming week will be estimating everything though - meals out, food cooked at my parents' house, even scale weight (they've got a scale but it's an old non-digital scale that is pretty inaccurate). I plan to enjoy myself and not worry too much about things - I'll estimate things as accurately as I can, but won't stress about it.

    Name: Ben
    Age: 51
    Height: 6'
    Total weight lost: ~55 lbs
    Time it took to lose: 9 months
    How long in maintenance: Since ~ December 2018
    Maintenance weight range: 166-171...ish

    Average weight recorded for December:165.8
    Average weight recorded for January: 167.3
    Average weight recorded for February: 167.2
    Average weight recorded for March: 166.5
    Average weight recorded for April: 162.9
    Average weight recorded for May: 161.5

    Week of...
    June 2nd: 161.1
    June 8th: 161.8
    June 16th: 159.9

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: There was an interesting dip at the end of the week that had me as low as 158.5. While I am still seeing how my Fitbit calorie estimation lines up with reality, my educated guess is that it has to do with me forgetting to take my usual creatine supplement for 2 or 3 days in a row, possibly leading to a loss in water weight. Even so, I'm not so hot about the trend line and will be bumping up intake until I'm at least back in the low 160s this coming week.

    I'm also not so hot about all the storms rolling through and messing up my outside time; even so, I'm still averaging over 20K steps a day and have been religious about my resistance and cardio. I've been channeling current lots o' stress positively into walking rather than eating, with the added benefit of entertaining the family as I walk loops around the inside of the house.

    Have a great week everyone!

    Name: Laura
    Age: 30
    Height: 6'
    Weight loss: 12 pounds (but with recomp)
    Time it took to lose: 4 months
    How long in maintenance: October
    Maintenance range: 151-155

    (don't really bother with the average recorded weights per month)

    My weight has been 154.6 or 154.8 since May 23rd. Weird to have it so regular. I don't weigh every day or use a trending app, though. I'd like to get back to around 152 but I'm not that bothered.

    Successes of the week: I went to Skye. I felt like I ate a lot of cheese, scones, and whisky, but my weight seems to be pretty steady. I'm now back to my usual way of eating and feeling less bloated, and getting back into strength training after a bit of a break.

    Struggle: I had a big binge on the 9th and have been trying to not let it set me back in terms of over-restricting or beating myself up. Doing OK on that front.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I have a very stressful time lately, and I'm a stress eater, so I couldn't really control my appetite when I saw some ice cream, cookies and any snack food. I had my MSc thesis defense last week, so I was really nervous and I have my final exam next week so I really can't focus on my eating habits. Hopefully once it's over, everything will go back to normal. :) I try to make healthier choices this week, but a little ice cream here and there won't hurt, right? :wink:

    Successes/struggles: This was a good week. The extra weight that I noted at the beginning of the week trended down as expected and I worked hard to keep it trending in the right direction. I tracked every day this week except for Saturday, but I did not over indulge. I was over on my calorie goal a few days, but I made up for it with exercise, so I know I was above my normal TDEE. Marathon training stats this week and I am hoping I can balance out my hunger with good food choices.

    @kgirlhart Thank you very much! I try to stay within my calorie goal each day with or without ice cream, it seems to be working for almost 6 months now, fortunately. :)
  • reversemigrationreversemigration Posts: 105Member Member Posts: 105Member Member
    @hippiesaur I feel your pain. The last month has been full of end-of-school stuff, and I took the NCLEX today. I'm rewarding myself with a trip to the gym this evening. :D

    June 15 Avg 155.34 Trend: 155.55
    June 22 Avg 155.22 Trend: 155.29 (good)

    Average in 2019 so far: 153.55
    <153? No


    Successes:
    Tracking all, getting more sleep by changing habits slowly, low bp, fit in skinny jeans.
    Successful in dropping average calories in June to 145 fewer per day than in May!!
    Continuing to adjust to maintenance - in for the long haul, but not out of the woods yet.
    Dropped from 30 to 24 avg extra calories per day for 2019.
    I FEEL GREAT!!

    Challenges:
    Still nervous, but trying to turn it around gradually. May consider dieting based upon how things are in mid-July.

    Since Jan 1, I’ve gained 1.17 lbs in 173 days. Works out to 24 calories extra per day. Better maintenance than I’ve ever done in my life, but I really feel better at 153lbs.

    Trends are looking slightly better. This encourages me to continue my approach.

    Things I need to improve in June:
    Continue to make baby changes to get more sleep✅

    Keep watching & reducing calories ✅

    When recovered from illness, resume exercise program. If wt goes up again, and skinny jeans still fit, consider adjusting goal range slightly.

    Be Careful: Family visiting...for 10 days with trip for 5 of them. Got a place with a kitchen, so I could eat at “home” more. With wt on scale up, I’m definitely going to be careful.

    I hope you all are doing well.

    💕
    Maddie

    Thanks!
